#315 closed defect (fixed)

Once set, it is not possible to set the dive location again using the map

If the dive location is already set, it is not possible to set a new dive location by double clicking on the map until the current location is removed and the dive is saved.

Kinda true, kinda not.
Once a location is set you need to enter "edit mode" to change the location.
I guess that's a bit unintuitive... so I wonder what a better solution might be.
I don't really like to always have double click change locations. That's too easy to happen unintentionally (many map browsers zoom / center on double click - we actually just turned that off with our maps).
Should there be a tooltip? A button saying "edit location"?

Oh, and harv just mentioned on IRC that apparently the "change location when in edit mode" doesn't work anymore :-(

Also, I don't know if I should open an other bug but editing the location while using french doesn't work at all. you either end up in the Gulf of Guinea or with a red Coordinates field that you can't save.

Oh interesting. I bet locale handling of numbers messes with us here.
Can you post a sample string that you think should be valid and that gets you a red field - or alternatively a string that you enter and that is misinterpreted?

Fixes Setting the dive-location via the map.

This patch adds a context menu to set the dive location
via the globe, being the dive with a coordinate or not.

It also fixes setting the dive location on edit mode.

So, in french (LC_ALL=fr_FR), that string is ending up red and can't be saved:
"N20° 26.17602' , O87° 0.68802'"

While using LC_ALL=en_US that string ends up yellow and can be saved:
"N20° 26.17602' , W87° 0.68802'"

Also, "N20°26.17602' , W87°0.68802'" ends up red but can be saved and is working fine.

In 917b47b79cb8accbedd2c49c569aaafb728914c5/subsurface:

Parse localized GPS string

Let's ALWAYS support the somewhat "international standard" N/S/W/E
characters, but ALSO support localized versions.
