One additional remark: In ID I can only display Public GPS Traces not my
private ones (yet) Do You know if this is planned or point me in the
direction where I can make a feature request?

If you save the living environment, the biodiversity that we have left,
you will also automatically save the physical environment, too. But If
you only save the physical environment, you will ultimately lose both.

1) Don’t drive species to extinction

2) Don’t destroy a habitat that species rely on.

3) Don’t change the climate in ways that will result in the above.
