#13774 new defect

On GPS import do not change the viewport

Reported by: HarryKane Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version:

Description (last modified by HarryKane)

How to reproduce:

  1. Download a new area with download of GPS data enabled.

Expected behavior:
Do not change the viewport to show the latest imported GPS points or tracks, at least not after the user has manually selected an area to view or edit. Therefore the user can inspect or work with the data while the GPS tracks are downloaded in the background.
Show the progress of downloading GPS data in a more suitable way, for instance in a progress bar in the status bar.

Actual behavior:
While downloading GPS data (which takes minutes) the viewport jumps around, even if the user has selected an area to inspect or edit before. This is confusing and makes it impossible to view or edit a desired area until the download of (possibly unneeded) GPS tracks is finished.
The only way to stop this horrific episode is to quit JOSM and start over again.
