@Žajdlík Josef
changes should not be lost after you press the back button. Anyway, any better solution? I want to get rid of confirmation buttons as much as possible.

I guess yes, in the case of a mistake, the point can be easily changed to shape. Or use the Enter key. The first click moves the cursor into the "description" field. The second click will confirm and exit the dialog. Now the second click moves the cursor to the next line in the "description" field. At the same time, I would still have the option of ending by clicking on the map.

Today while recording with beta I searched for some caches locus did it but switched to pro version recording the track with both versions. Two is better than nothing

In red too close the numbers of altitude
In yellow too thin the grid lines to be useful

Aaaand new Beta version 3.32.2.2 before weekend.
Except bunch of fixes, I spend most of time on tunning of computed calories. Those of you who use and check these values, please check also some older tracks you rode and let me know how does it match to your expectations, other web services etc. Feedback is more then welcome (and if you attach your track as well, it will be ideal).
And wish you a nice weekend!
Locus last beta vs Garmin forerunner 235 with HR monitor and Garmin Connect

2 activities: a walk and a run
Screenshot attached
Seems locus doesn't want that I eat ice creams this evening it's always lower in energy consumption than Garmin 🤤

@lor74cas
Hello, I've sent you my email via PM. Alternatively you could submit a new ticket at our Locus help desk and attach the file there. Thank you.
In today last beta now works

Hello guys,
has anyone tried out the new Live tracking configuration/profile setup wizard that is started when you click on plus icon on the main live tracking screen? The setup wizard is currently only available in beta but I would like to know if you have any comments or feedback about this new LT profile setup style. Is it an improvement or an even bigger mess than before? :)

@lor74cas
Are you using beta? Which Android version do you use? Is Locus Map like completely frozen? Any chance of getting a bug report when this happens? :) Thanks

I can create the debug report with developer option tell me where I have to send it

@tapio
setup of "climbing/descending/flat speeds" is overkill
OK! Hey, Locus already does calculate decent ETAs internally for the temporary track... and also offers it in route planner (Menu -> Travel time) - There is "Bergwandern (mountain hiking)" which would be more appropriate for me for display in the bottom bar.

BTW as you probably know, Germany has a norm for this (DIN 33466):

Code: [Select]
Up: <u> meters
Down: <d> meters
Horizontal: <h> meters

Conservative assumption - the hiker walks per hour:
300m up
500m down
4km horizontal

Calculation:
a = u/300 + d/500
b = h/4
c = greater value of a and b
d = smaller value of a and b

Walking time: (0.5*c + d) hours

Interesting algorithm, I tried to insert my current trailrunning data and return a satisfactory ETA. Maybe the fatigue factor is missing, as the number of kilometers increases or the difference in height takes over the fatigue that makes slowing down, while the proposed formula is linear, the reality is a curve.
Obviously you have to compare similar data to get reliable results, you can not enter a time on 100 meters to look for time in the marathon.
However, it has a very good approximation to reality, thanks.

@lor74cas
battery saving mode is always ... "wrong" for GPS usage
Anyway I'll always suprised that my overcomplicated altitude system return quite good elevation values. Nice :)
I think your system of high complexity is used by the sapcex project, you have to try to ask them for money or a tesla in exchange for your code. ;)
I think the altitude manager needs some simplification once we find the way we have the best results.
We have these use cases:
A) no srtm - no baro> ok user do you want to download the srtm data to improve the altitude data? Yes (B) - No ok good luck I hope you are running by the sea, do not bother me for inaccurate elevation data :)

B) srtm - no baro> altitude assisted by srtm by default (I do not know which filter is the best solution)

C) no srtm - baro> ok user do you want to download the srtm data to improve the altitude data? Yes now (D) - No ok I hope you are by the sea, where you can calibrate your baro at 0 mt or do not bother me for inaccurate elevation data :)

D) srtm - baro> srtm and active baro in car with light filter

Any other configuration in an advanced menu (manual offset, geoid, nmea, calibration ...), is just my opinion, but emerges from the face of the frightened users I saw while watching the altitude manager (wife, friends, colleagues)

Not a bug report just for information about power saving mode of my device.
Today I tested the battery saving mode on the a5 2017 Samsung
@lor74cas - thanks for report - I have just bought this phone so am hoping no power saving problems with Locus.
I note has inbuilt barometer - do you find the ascent measurement more accurate than a phone without inbuilt barometer?
I use light filter in combination with automatic gps calibration with good results. I also use hgt files with 1 arc accuracy.

Compared to the old s5 mini it's really more accurate, but elevation seem to not be exact science: every device, every app can give you different values, now I'm happy to have values near to what expected when planning my trips.

Today I tested the battery saving mode on the a5 2017 Samsung.  Mid power saving mode with locus excluded from it I recorded a track.
Locus was working correctly but it did not had any response from gps, I could fix a point only when watching the map so not in background. I disabled power savings without stopping the recording and all went ok.
 
I think in this mid power saving mode only the foreground app have access to gps.
Now I know it I will not use it anymore.
Power saving not Locus

I found myself trapped in the Store again with the latest RC. Both the system Back button (bottom left) and the Locus one (top left) took me to the same screen I was already on. Eventually rapid and repeated tapping on Back while the screen was reloading allowed me to escape.


For me up left back button on  screen and back phone button work correctly

Troubles & Questions / Re: display altimetry graph on screen?
« on: July 25, 2018, 22:50:45 »
Wait wait it is not impossible by Locus, but it could be faster and more simple by optimised trackeditor AFTER a navtrack was created !  What can you do now ?  At the position where you want that Icon you have to create a Via point by the planner ! So you need some extra more taps and than choose change your new created shape point to via point.  After this save  your finished navtrack.
Next: Display that navtrack with the via points. (Default Icon is  a blue down pointing arrow). Tap the arrow icon and than select edit.  Choose free name and new Icon by the internal Locus Icon list. (Garmin list or Locus list)
Roger ?   (That Locus method is the complicated geeky one)
Done with locus with your magic tutorial 🧙‍♂️

Mobile now. Sorry for eventual typos. Answer. Open the (shared) gpx file on a pc by gpx editor (freeware).  See the used elements inclusive the used (sym) in the  associated wpt's of the used gpx file pse. Actual Locus version do support the gpx trk_navwpt method.  An improved Locus trackeditor selecting a Locus Icon from the internal Locus list also could have done such an EASY task. But nobody seems to asks for anymore. The Locus trackeditor by latest versions even has less functionality than in the older versions.  Pfffff...
So you have to find out the <sym>text when using gpxeditor. More info about all Locus map supported Garmin AND Locus Icons by <sym>text see the attachments in this link pse.  http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=4178.msg50723#msg50723
Thank you for your explanation understood, so using locus it's not possible  to insert the "special" waypoints and I need to edit the gpx file on pc.
I'll try this way but I need time and if I have time there must be bad weather to keep me home at pc.
It's a pity that locus can not have this waypoints feature.

P.s.
Geekness is powerfull in you
