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 :).

Hurray, another new version is out. I'm ready for bug-fixing.

Thanks for help to all ;).

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.

Good day Andrew,
thanks for a report. I see main problem here that chart does not match to statistics tab. In statistics is visible that around 31 minutes, there was "no movement" and it's not correctly reflected on chart, agree.

So I hope this will be better

@tapio:
version tomorrow .. sorry for a delay.

@Andrew Heard:
sorry to hear you had such problems with obtain of logs. It's perfect, just in this case, this method is not useful. There are two common types of problems ... crash and ANR.
Crash is when app really crash and you get dialog with "Application was terminated" (or something like this). In this case, log is useful, because in log is directly information where app crashed (not why).
ANR means "application not responding". This happen when app do too much work on background (longer then 5 seconds). Then you see dialog "Application is not responding" with option "wait" or "close". This should be your case here and log is not useful, because app did not crash, it just do something ... if you leave app for some time, it should start working again.
So thanks for a log, it did not helped for now, but I believe I've found thanks to your information a source of troubles! And now you at least know, how to create useful log (for cases when app "crash"). ;)

@0709:
not sure what you expect from me now.

@Andrew Heard:
I wrote huge list of changes ( smaller changes I thought ).
List? Hmm ... as I see in my source code repository, changes related to Route planner system:
- chg: completely new system of dynamic actions for move/zoom/fling actions and applied this system on few places
- chg: new system of centering map content  ( based on panning instead of direct set of new location )
- chg: disabled "map" button on chart displayed from Route planner
- chg: fixed validity of Nogo points to one day ( to be valid also for selected day )
- chg: performance improvements
- chg: removed old Route planner system
- chg: convert trackpoint > shaping point does not trigger recalculate
- chg: improved internal handling of nogo places
- chg: text improvements

"Insert/remove break" .. bug, thanks

@alezy:
Insert/edit trackpoint action is maybe most used Your function, but for sure not to every user. No long click is currently planner, sorry.

"Also, why you disabled long press on "delete point" action to clear route?" - you mean in Route planner, right? Clear of route is currently placed in side menu. It's usage is not so often so one slide to open menu to access this feature is for sure not a problem.
"Left/right" swipes ... yes, that should be nice. I know I've read this idea a long time ago on help desk, cannot find it now. Anyway it's not an easy task for now, sorry.

Shaping Point(s) into exported gpx ?
As ONLY Locus must recognise/reconstruct.
Shaping Point indicator in trkpt attribute <type>
<trkpt lat="51.0529732704163" lon="3.99975299835205">
<type>Shape</type>

Navigation & Guidance / Re: Offline navigation - BRouter v1.2+
« on: September 24, 2017, 08:51:46 »
Hmm, I do not think it was discussed, aside of the nogo iniciative at Locus side and private discussion of LocusMap and BRouter developers. I do remember Arndt, the BRouter author, once mentioned he was working on the new kinematic routing model.

A big part of changes are rather BRouter internal things. For an end user, the important features are these:

- completely new kinematic routing for cars(car-fast, car-eco)(*). It looks like a big thing. This routing  does not use the costfactor, so It currently bypasses the profile developer effort based on costfactor calculation. The routing is tuned by the parameter of maximal target speed vmax(90 for eco, 160 for fast, probably 130 or 110 for non Germans ).It could be tweaked by changing of max default speed for highways classes to change priorities..  I see I will have to rename my car profiles to avoid confusion. Probably by adding P as Poutnik.

- compatibility with the new LocusMap nogo point interactive management   ( for now in Locus beta)

- 2 minor things for profile developers

(*) seems to me as optional, depending on presence of the kinematic model context line in a profile. So in my understanding, both new kinematic car profiles and my old car profiles should be, after renaming, usable side by side.
