All users of version 2.17 are satisfied with the new features. A few more changes and we can forget all the other programs and only use VantagePoint.

1. Viewing and deleting data from eXplorist.
Before each journey, we must remove the old waypoints, routes and tracks from navigator. VP shows data in Tritons and they can be removed. VP does not show the data in eXplorist. Remove something from it is not possible. This is very inconvenient.
Need to make viewing and deleting data from eXplorist like Triton. Show folders and subfolders is optional, but desirable. You will be able to delete the entire folder. It would be good to add a context menu item "Delete checked" or "Remove unchecked" (Both items are also good).

2. Bug after editing a waypoint.
If a program change the coordinates of a waypoint, or add a comment, then after synchronization, the navigator will be two points with the same name. The same effect would be if the waypoint is moved to a subfolder. Perhaps, routes and tracks have the same effect.
If name is unchanged, then program must replace the point, rather than creating new ones.

3. Suggestions for "View All Details"

3.1. Displaying in the list and on the map.
The list displays all the data from the MyJournal. On the map in panel are visible only data marked in MyJournal. I identify the data, the map is scrolled, but i can not see anything. At first this is surprising. After annoying.
Must be: or shown in the list only checked data, or shown on the map in panel all data from list.

3.2. Sorting and grouping
The data in the list conveniently grouped by type, distance and altitude. Sorted by name would be good grouping to subfolders.

3.3. Changing type of waypoint.
It is often necessary to change the name of the waypoint marker for several points. This option is not available in VP. When you select the type of waypoint from icons, it would be nice to see a hint, "Marker name."

4. Create and edit routes.
We have already discussed the difference between the routes and tracks. I feel sorry for those who do not understand.
We need to do editing of routes is the same as the tracks. This is very important. If this is done, we can refine the details.

5. Edit tracks
When you select a point or points on the map, Line in the list is highlighted. The list should scroll so you can see it.

6. Map Manipulator
VantagePoint is the only program in the world, in which the cursor up to zoom in and down to zoom out. If you use VantagePoint and GoogleEart, you will mention the devil every day.

I hope someone will correct errors in this text and send it to developers.
I'm always glad when someone find errors in my programs. This allows me to make the program better.
We hope that the developers VantagePoint also think so.
