Show the GPS track even in the small interactive download map. Currently you have to resize the editor window to get a download area that fits only the track.

Other suggestion: let JOSM jump to an area which encloses the recently opened GPX-track like JOSM does with recently downloaded data.

@OP: starting JOSM from CMD like
$ josm_script path/to/file.gpx
results with in a JOSM whose bbox encloses the latest opened GPX-track.

Right-Click on the GPX track layer (in layer overview) gives you a menu point to download data along GPX track. This should solve your problem much better than your suggestion.

Well the download algorithm doesn't work fine. More than 10 requests are bad and it can't deal with long routes that have a heaye turn (so just one side of an rectangle that could be splitted better in 2 parts. So doing it by hand would be the better way. Therefore I think it's easyer to do this in the preview window.

Well, then instead of adding a very hard to implement feature (what you request is actually overlaying the main layers in download box and this would be a major change) we should optimize the auto-downloader.

Improvements in the calculations are welcome.

Would be great. There are big problems if you try to download e.g. a recorded bus route with a lot of turns. IMHO a first good step might be a better dialoge that shows up the resulting areas and a max requests input.
