Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Store
« on: April 20, 2018, 17:30:57 »
Psst, Canada Base Topo is a horrible map, obsolete data, not worth the time to download.  OSM (eg LoMaps) is much much better.

Besides, after using that map for more than a minute or two, Locus always locks up.  Maybe it's because of the funny non-north alignment, I don't know.  But menion, don't waste time trying to fix that because, have I mentioned, it's a horrible map so I don't care.  :)

Thanks balloni, and done.
But I was thinking more as a suggestion for the default.

No worry, time is set far away in future for a Pro version.
I know that, thank you, because you just told me.  But does the average customer know that?  (Does this app expire?  Do my maps expire?  Do I have to buy something again later?)

Perhaps "Checking time limitation...  None"

Cache details screen:

For the last day (in the new Pro release) I've been tapping on the word "Logs", or tapping on the five icons beside that word, hoping something would happen.  Nothing happened.

Now I realize that if I tap the blank space to the right of the five icons, whoosh, it takes me to the Logs tab.  That's exactly what I wanted!  But why is that space blank?  (This is on the tablet, large-ish screen, a cache loaded via PQ.  Same happens on the low-res phone.)

Is there a phantom button that's supposed to be visible?

Also, did the log text just get a lighter shade of grey once again?   Out in sunlight, higher contrast would really help.

While we're on the subject...  Couldn't "Attachment" be moved to the far right, past "Logs"?  I never ever use attachments (does anybody?), but always have to scroll past the useless-for-me panel to reach the Logs.  Thanks.

"Checking time limitation..."

This is one of the startup messages, in Pro version just released.  Does that message apply to Beta only?

A purchaser of Pro might justifiably assume they have a right to use the app forever, and worry about this.

@Condor: G4L seems to get confused if you have both Pro and Beta installed.  Have you tried uninstalling Beta?

The first time I installed Beta, I got default settings.

Now that I know of a simple way to copy Pro settings to Beta (backup/restore), I'm happy.  It's quick and easy - once you know about it.  Thanks.

Thanks, but I meant, copying from Pro to Beta on the same device.  Maybe it'll work regardless.  I'll give it a try.

EDIT: that worked, thanks.  Had to restart the Beta twice, but then it worked.

It's not in my abilities to check all settings for each installation beta.
On that note, is there a simple way of copying all your customized settings for Pro over to Beta?  I couldn't find it by looking through the file structure.

I would use Beta more often if it acted just like my fine-tuned Pro.

GPS management seems good with beta

I went for a walk and recorded a track, and the track corresponds very well with earlier tracks and the OSM map.  I noticed estimated accuracy as good as 3m; in a recent version a few days ago I never saw <10m, as others have mentioned.

And it now seems to turn off GPS reliably when Locus isn't using it and isn't focussed.  Earlier I had issues with that.

I'm using Android 6 and have GPS set to Device Only.

PS, in the Beta, I like the new placement of the cache logs, behind a More button.  Easier access, I like that.

But sometimes I have to scroll down to reach that button, because of the blasted (false) field note from my earlier Found It log.  I still think this is a bug, because it was never a field note (or "draft").  It's really "your previous log", but labelled as something else.

Now logically, wouldn't it make sense to move your existing log (fake field note) into something like a "Mine" button beside the "More" button?

Someone mentioned a glitch with the GPS not shutting off.  I noticed this too, with the current released (not beta) version.

I was caching yesterday, and after some frustration with GPS position not seeming to update as I walked, I switched GPS compatibility mode on and continued.  Maybe that's relevant.  (I can't remember if I switched that mode back, but had more update glitches.)  Later at home I noticed I still had guidance on, so I cancelled that and turned off the screen, went to bed.  The GPS should've turned off at that point.

Next morning, battery was abnormally low, and GPS was still active.  I did some experimenting with that mode setting, but found nothing conclusive.  It seems to be working okay now.

*** BETA version ***
- geocaching users: please check display of listings & images. If all is correctly sized and click on images display device image viewer
All looks good; can't tell any difference from Pro.  The rare cache-log image still refuses to load (discussed some time ago), but I seem to remember it was resolved as an image-library problem.  Anyway, that only seems to happen rarely.

@Viajero Perdido
really please check mentioned settings > maps > points & tracks > popup content. If this option is by accident disabled (sorry), please enable it back
Ah, thanks for reminding me where those settings are kept.  I turned them back on, and they work fine - on both devices.

You know, I haven't visited that settings screen in a very long time.  This all sounds eerily familiar...

I haven't changed my top panel in a long time (years?) on either device, and I think both had identical content, so maybe that's why they reverted to a default state.  The right-side panel, yes, I've changed that more recently.  6 months ago maybe.

Thanks for changing the blue notification bar to black again.

I still don't see Hint nor Load All Waypoints in the ">" menu from a cache popup in the .1 version, for caches in the database that do have hints / waypoints.  Are you saying you put those back?  Maybe we're thinking of different places in the interface.  (It would be nice to have them back.)
