how to use slider when building gpx on android

+1 vote
When I try to build a gpx file from a virtual gps on my samsung galaxy s5, I cannot control the sliders.  Trying to slide them pans the screen around.  Two fingers on the screen zooms for me. These are consistent with the interface.  But how do I drive the sliders to change the number of logs and the last refresh?

This is how I do it.

First a short press on the slider which is then jumps back from the standard setting of 5 logs to 0 (zero)

Then press and hold the slider on the required number. Wait a few seconds before releasing the slider.

This is the difficult part and depends on the reception of network

Thanks it works better than what I have done before.

It is still a little awkward and time consuming.  I wonder if this has to deal with the fact I am across the pond from the server.

by participating in one-even with several players, before making a circuit in common, staying to discover caches night, I could see how other players were running variousphone some of which had the same as me ... I could teach them how to better serve meand mine later ... to locate me, I use a lot and I google map fixed points by registeringand renaming maintaining pressure above a few seconds as we showed it to me forsome-even with major players ...

My personal best "trick" is to not zoom but to use landscape instead. The upper slider works better than the lower than, but I manage to use them both.

This has worked for me on my Samsung Galaxy S4 and my S6. It also works well on my Samsung Tablet 8.4", unsure of the exact model number. I don't know in detail how my girlfriend does it, but she uses an S5 and manage too at least.

But yes, ideally it should definitely work smoother with Android/Chrome.

Thanks for this trick as well.  It helps.
Rephrased "My personal best "trick" is to not zoom and use landscape" to "My personal best "trick" is to not zoom but to use landscape instead". It wasn't too clear what I actually meant.
