Problem with flooded land, this wasn't observed in previous versions (though I remember that I've seen this about a half a year ago, too).

Clear map cache (mapsOnline) in settings/miscellanous doesn't clear it (but says process successful).

Hi menion,
My setting "GPS and Location" "turn on during start" = always
since update to V 2.9 i have following problem:

1.) during start of Locus first a button apears "GPSsymbol disabled" and then "GPSsymbol enabled", but the GPS is not enabled an also "My Location is disabled. :(
So i close Locus and wait 10 seconds.
2.) I start Locus once again, only the button  "GPSsymbol enabled" apears, GPS and My Location is enabled! :D
I close Locus and wait 10 seconds.
Next start see 1.) :(
I close Locus and wait 10 seconds.
Next start see 2.) :D

Al second start of Locus GPS is on, the other second start GPS is off, on and on

Peter is also responsible for problems with mapsforge lib?
Just to make it clear, the problem appears not only with Locus internal themes but also other themes.

Locus did'n inform when lost bluetooth GPS (only BEEP when connected, when disconnect no notification). When lost coordinates from internal GPS Locus BEEP, but when lost external BT GPS don't BEEP, why?

Nice feedback from all, excellent, thanks!

Testing version 2.9.1.1

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8015949/Locus% ... .9.1.1.apk (https://dl.dropbox.com/u/8015949/Locus%20%28dev%29/test_versions/2.9.1.1.apk)

news:

Feedback is really welcome. Version 2.9.0 had big problem with finding root directory mainly on SGS1, current suffer from GPS and vector maps, so I would like to release probably in saturday morning perfect version on next weeks.

to above comments:
@tommi: nono, I thought that problem is in themes (for which is Peter responsible). This was my issue in lib
@nimodo: sorry, should be fixed now
@Maksym: hmm you want to hear notification if Locus disconnect from BT GPS? Because notification about fix or loose of the fix should work. Notification when BT GPS is disconnected is not there, you're right
@Mek: cannot confirm. "Clear map cache" for me delete all *sqlitedb files in Locus/mapsOnline. So if I return back, then I see only a small number (it's size of providers.xml file + some icons if you have any)

Yeah, it's this, sorry... I was confused by the size of cached maps not being 0, together with windows explorer in PC somehow showing the files when they were no longer there. Perhaps it could be good to only count "deletable" files into this size? :)

@jusc What is the map (name/source) you used in your previous screen? Does  issue occur in last fix version 2.9.1.1?  It looks little bit different then tommi's blue polygon.

Hello voldapet,
thank you for offering help. I just figured it out. It seems at least for me that there was a change in the mapsforge library.
All published Volatile-Themes are working well, but I made a small change for one of the themes for my own two weeks ago and I didn´t remember this.
So I went back to the older version of the theme and now it works as before.  :)

Thank you for your efforts.

I observed that in the first buggy 2.9.x version the number of highway-crossings and exits was displayed which made me very happy (vector map of germany, openandromaps, one of the internal styles). With the very last released version those numbers unfortunately vanished. Is this intentional?

Sorry for the question - but so far I have not installed a test version of locus yet.

I have the pro version but this version says it is the free version and not installed yet on my phone.

Makes it sense to install it on parallel of my prep version?

Do I mess up anything?

you don't have to worry here. Testing versions overwrites Locus Free, so installed Locus Pro remain untouch.

In this case, this version is not true testing version (which is usually Locus Free with unlocked Pro features for limited time), but because of accident, it's normal Free version, but it doesn't matter too much here.

Anyway it's not a problem to have both versions at once, anyway as I think about it ... hmm because when you install Free version and will still have Pro version, you cannot test if Locus create empty directory after restart. Danm ... dreamteam, seems you wanted to help with testing, but in this case, just leave it be :). It will be little bit complicated to correctly test it now and I don't want to loose some data or cause you some troubles. I believe my fix will work, so check tomorrow new version and if it will not work, we'll discuss next steps ... thanks!

I find 2 bugs.
1. Incorrect distance to next track point during guiding. I make a screenshot. As you can see distance to the next track point is 582 m but at the top of the screen I see 194 m. I don't understand why? Sometimes this distances are the same (as they must be) but sometimes different and I don't know what 194 m means.
[attachment=0:zguxkzis]Screenshot_2013-02-22-15-40-18.png[/attachment:zguxkzis]
2. I select to start GPS always when Locus start. But sometimes Locus starts with GPS off. The problem is when GPS not start automatically blue cursor on screen always has direction to the North (but usually it must show my direction of moving). Even when map rotated it still has direction to the North. Only after restart Locus and automatic GPS start this cursor show my direction. But restart Locus is not easy - I must stop recording track (even if I want to have one track of my trip), wait export it, then read export report, close seport, close Locus, start Locus, begin record new track. On current screenshot cursor works fine.

Post by: menion on February 22, 2013, 18:12:34
1. check my improved screenshot, that's the value. I used this value for navigation orders etc. Anyway it has no sense if you're not on the track and if you're, then true value has very low difference to mine. So in next version this value will be as expected

2. problem with GPS should be fixed in test version

EDIT: as I see on screenshot, maybe the distance is less real distance along the track, so not exactly one I draw on screenshot, but only between previous red corner and current target

Post by: menion on February 22, 2013, 18:15:16
Last test version before tomorrow release. Hope that I do not forget on anyone and all reported problems are fixed (at least major once). If anyone want check, here is version.

Creating new category of points says "Process unsuccessful" but the category is created okay (so tapping OK again says category already exists).
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.9.X
Post by: Maksym on February 22, 2013, 21:33:03
Yes, looks like it's distance between previous and target track point. But in real life sometimes I can't go exactly as track drown and must skip some points - so maybe better if I see distance to next track point :). Sometimes I can go out ftom track point - so distance must increase (now I get something like WRONG DISTANCE).
Thanks.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.9.X
Post by: menion on February 23, 2013, 18:52:52

Post by: Maksym on February 24, 2013, 15:21:06
Thanks for fixing many bugs in 2.9.2.
Now when BT GPS lost coordinates (for example when undeground) Locus BEEP and vibrate as I select in preferences. But when Locus lost connection with BT GPS (for example when battery discharge or turn BT GPS Off) Locus has only pop-up notification "Connection lost" but no BEEP or vibration. Can you add BEEP also for lost connection with BT GPS? Thanks.

Hi to all,
  I would like to introduce new testing version 2.9.2.2

Main information

short list of main changes

Version
[attachment=0:29tq0gzp]2.9.2.2.apk[/attachment:29tq0gzp]

EDIT1: after short discussion with gynta, in next version will be changed default settings for new tracks. "Use style of the folder" will be enabled by default for all tracks, and not disabled as now. It makes sence because if you import or finish track record, you usually do not want to care about styles as they'll be defined for every folder

Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.9.X
Post by: menion on March 02, 2013, 12:51:42
text in previous post improved. I was talking about backup of databases, so you'll be sure you'll not loose any data in case of problems. So do complete backup in locus, or just manually backup locus/data/database directory

Ahoj Menione, kopíruju sem svoji odpověď z vlákna https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/2shqc0u3tv3xw (https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/2shqc0u3tv3xw)

Díky za odpověď, jinak je Locus skvělá aplikace, jenom bych ještě pouvažoval do informací o stopě přidat průměrné hodnoty ze senzorů (ANT nebo bluetooth), když je teď Locus podporuje.

Tak teď jsem zkoušel tu testovací verzi 2.9.2.2 a ten popsaný problém s ANT+ je vyřešen. Po kliknutí na start v ANT manažeru se čidlo tepu připojí.

Je tu však druhý problém. Po asi 10 až 20 sekundách se ukončí služba ANT radio service a čidlo opět nereaguje. Je nutno v ANT manažeru kliknout na stop a pak zase na start, ale situace s vypnutím se opakuje. Vyzkoušeno i při záznamu trasy.

Hi menion,
since 23.02.2013 all logfiles in locuslogs (suffix .html) are empty (size = 0).
I have set record_debug_logs=1 in the config.cfg.

Before this date the logfiles had about 20 kB.

Did you change something?

I have downloaded your new 2.9.2.2 and will test it.

Yesterday evening I installed the 2.9.2.2 and now the logfiles are written again.

Could you include the Locus version number in the logfile?

2130838297, Testing Free (working as Pro) version. Valid till: 31. 03. 2013, 4)


And of course there were no problems with the new version: conversion was ok, vector map download is as always blocked in the free version :-(

Hi menion,
there is a new bug:
today I wanted to test the new version, but during track recording the track was not visible :-( Only the actual position and start/stop were correct.
After stopping and saving I could see the complete track.
To be sure I made another track but with the same result.

I used the OutdoorActive maps , no vector maps.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.9.X
Post by: menion on March 04, 2013, 11:31:46
and do you have selected some visible color in settings? Because I just yesterday discovered that during track record are ignored all options like "Color by altitude, by speed", etc. and always is used only "Simple color".

Yes, of course. I have magenta as track colour and color by speed and I have nothing changed, only updated from the pro to 2.9.2.2. With the 2.9.2 all was perfect drawn on the display.
After saving I can see the track, but not during recording.

Test version 2.9.2.3

list of news of previous test version is here: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2867&start=20#p19254 (http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2867&start=20#p19254)

Do not forget to read info in previous test version!

And changes:
- some fixes in styles. This should be final version, fully working
- complete rewrite of "Quick map switch" (discussion here - https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topic ... let_it_die (https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/quick_map_switch_let_it_die))
- some minor changes



known, not fixed issues (also my small list of TODO on tomorrow)
martins report about problems with ANT+: viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2867&start=20#p19266 (http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=2867&start=20#p19266)

we have confirmation from wikimapia, so add it: https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topic ... s_xml_file (https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/wikimapia_org_section_in_providers_xml_file)

what is more then welcome

Hi Menion,

Locus (2.9.2.2 & 2.9.2.3) crashes reproducable after these steps:
- Open data manager and select a geocache from list => cache details are shown
- Refresh geocache (using gc4l from 3rd party menu) => geocache is refreshed, details of refreshed cache are shown
- now delete the geocache (from the tools menu of the detail screen) => geocache is deleted but still shown in the POI list
- now select the same geocache again from list => crash

Besides that, the test version is working fine for me.

Best regards,
 mambofive.

Hi menion,
does Locus do some new tasks in the background during track recording since 2.9.2.x?

With the versions <2.9.2 I had after my usual winter tours with 2.5 hours always a battery level of 60%.
Since 2.9.2.2 the battery goes down to 30-40% :-(
With BetterBatteryStats I see under partial wakelocks only Locus Free with 76%, all other apps are under 1%.
I have nothing changed , no new ROM, no new settings in Locus and the display is always off.

Where can I search for the cause?
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.9.X
Post by: menion on March 06, 2013, 12:50:22
hmm weird, nothing has changed in this version. GPS itself hold "wake-lock" so it's not nothing weird that you see 76% value, but 60% of the battery after 2.5 hours is little bit too much ...
