Attached is apotential replacement for Rout-from-Track in Route Manager.


- quality of conversion controlled by PlanSpeed (any Route Properties) and TrackDistanceInterval (Tools->Etc)
- automatic selection of generated WPT marks as per the quality setting
- handling of long stretches between trackpoints or segments
- default settings of PlanSpeed=5.0 and TrackDistanceInterval=0.1 give good first result

The algorithm ensures that the constructed route

- does not deviate by more than the TrackDistanceInterval value
- does not include legs longer than 4*PlanSpeed nmi
This task depends upon

Move to pi_Route? -- NO this belongs in Route Manager.

Indeed, this has already been implemented in the RM. Currently it is not possible to move to pi.
