Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.30.+ ( 15. 3. 2018 )
« on: April 11, 2018, 07:27:21 »
So far, three trials version 3.30.2.8, twice walking in the woods, one bike ride, always about one hour. The GPS records absolutely no problem on the Galaxy A3. I confirm the same dashboard problem as Andrew. If a dashboard is displayed on the screen and I choose a different one, the original one will be displayed. Just press the hide / show dashboard button to turn the tan right. The bug was in the previous beta, I forgot to alert.
The problems Condor points to, unconfirmed, on my phone.

CZ: Zatím tři testy verze 3.30.2.8, dvakrát chůze v lese, jednou jízda na kole, vždy asi jednu hodinu. Záznamy  GPS naprosto bez problémů na Galaxy A3. Potvrzuji stejný problém s dasboardy jako Andrew. Pokud je zobrazen na obrazovce nějaký dashboard a pomocí předvolby zvolím jiný, zůstane zobrazen ten původní. Stačí stisknout tlačítko skrýt/zobrazit dashboard a ukáže se tan správný. Chyba byla i v předchozí BETA, zapomněl jsem upozornit.
Potíže na které poukazuje Condor nepotvrzeny, na mém telefonu.

Discussion/New features / Re: Locus on a bike computer!

(sorry for the response delay)

By "locked", I actually just mean that the device comes with nothing that would let you install third party apps: there's no browser or app store preinstalled, and the launcher only has static links.

But thankfully, the device retains developer mode, and sideloading .apks is done the usual way. After installing a custom launcher and basics like a browser, the device functions pretty much like any other Android device.

In addition, there's a bootloader unlock toggle in developer mode, so no exploits are required to root the device (and install play services, etc). I needed to port TWRP to do so, (available here), but that's only a one-time thing.

If you didn't want to root however, you can also install Locus from the Amazon marketplace, which sideloads just fine.

(jajaballard hopefully that's enough info to point you in the right direction--otherwise, the process is standard enough that looking things up on xda will help)

It has always been like that: When I use the "Favourites" function and call Google Maps (App!) with it and it transfers the map center position:

- Google Maps does center its map to the Locus Center position, but does not add its waypoint (that red balloon symbol). Is there something that can be done on Locus side?

Menion, it is a desire for me to thank you and the people involved super super much many mucho for the most important app on my smartphone :D You are such an important part of the outdoor scene. And still lots of potential customers, I hope. Because in the outdoor world there is so many people having no clue about smartphone navigation, it's weird. If I meet people using their smartphones for this, which is rare, they do it on very basic levels.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Size of the characters scale
« on: March 11, 2018, 22:24:53 »
I'll keep this in mind. In config.cfg is already parameter that affect size of main layout on main map screen. So I for sure will support this parameter to affect new layout ( and probably also track editor, route planner, etc.) as well.

Hello,
this is not currently possible.
Anyway to keep things for other users simple, I've added new parameter into config.file (and not directly to Locus settings) ... "map_scale_font_size".
How to: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:customization:config
New version of Locus is planned on next week.

Discussion/New features / Re: What's the "Next Big Thing" in 2018?
« on: February 08, 2018, 17:39:13 »
Good topic :).
Let's discuss basic plans for year 2018

I'll give here, at least, current state in our small team.

Little history:
I had (still have) large hope in live tracking system. Two years ago, I've hired one guy who wrote for me server side solution in nice Clojure language (after more then year of work!). And when first part was finished, he stopped to communicate. Nice .. btw. no one know Clojure :). My mistake ...

In November, some of you probably noticed, that our team had increased to 6 person. Milan > finally developer who should help me with Android. His first task was (still is) Wear add-on. Nice work I think ...
Since January, he work on 1:1 conversion of old Live tracking system to something, we may continue work on it and improve. ETA till middle of March. Then, Milan will work on new UI & various stuff around Live tracking system, also based on feedback. I expect, it will be work on few more months. And then ... sync server? ( most probably ).

Because number of people involved in work on Locus increased and for my suprise, all wants their monthly salary, and also because of number of sold Locus Map is still +- same ( slowly growing ), we needs to invest more work into interesting content, that may bring additional income. Because of this was created and published new Store, because of this I now needs to work on new system for login, new Start screen and third bigger thing will be new Map manager ( which is currently terrible user-experience ).

Most wanted feature: synchronisation. Some users wrote, it's now easy task with some existing stuff. Well, with Petr and Milan, we spend on discussions around this many many hours and we still do not have simple universal solution, that may be done within few weeks. Anyway few ideas are in our heads ... EDIT: and we also have it in list of top priorities!

Except few priorities, that I wrote before and that have to do ( even it's not kind of developement I like ), I really wants to focus in first half of year on:
  • better logging system for geocaching
  • fine-tune route planner
  • fine-tune track editor

And in second half of year
  • new design for main map screen ( close to what is visible in Route planner)
  • new track detail screen with better stats, chart, weather, etc.
  • improve Dashboard system & custom "dashboard" for track screen

My time estimates are really bad, so be aware of it ...
Uff, too long post ... sorry :).

Ways other than roads? Not sure I follow you?

I mean by a "way" any OSM way intended for vehicle/horse/pedestrian travelling.
I,.e. tagged by highway=*

By a road I mean such a way, that is - more or less unrestricted - intended primarily or exclusively for cars for regular traffic.  Typically unclassified to motorways, mostly also the service and residential as well. 

In such a sense, tracks, paths, cycleways are not roads.

It is possible to install both LoMaps and OAMaps of the same area, and use the LoMaps offline address search while displaying the OAM maps. Offline address search allows you to select the file to search (at the top of screen).

Long-click to re-route ... I'm still not perfectly sure how to deal with it, so not for now.
;D
So a nice trigger for a test. Import attached file. Long-click to re-route.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Can slope filtering be improved?
« on: November 24, 2017, 08:29:21 »
Good day Andrew,
thank you for a precise description of a problem.

Unfortunately only what I may do now, is to create an new task in our "task system", that will collect problems related to filtering of measured variables with a small promise, that I'll look at it more completely during next year. Thanks for understanding.
