uploaded on Google Play. News after start as usually. Consider it mainly as a bug fix version with few interesting improvements and mainly some performance improvements discussed here.

Good day Andrew, 9 weeks trip, very nice, enjoy it!!

Problems: hmm sorry to hear this. If you will want any older version, just tell me. Anyway crash: immediately after crash take a log and send me it once you will be on internet. I have reported every day many crashes ... for example after last 30 days I see in crash console: 9308 crashes ... eh. All these are anyway just some automatic crash reports by Android system without any idea how and why happen. But I'm solving only these, that are repeated more often or better directly reported by users, so I may simulate them.

Problem with repaint ... more complicated, hmm. It should be useful if you find any key that starts this problem. I never saw this thought ...

Hmm you are right, weird.

But on Google Play all seems to be correct, don't know where is the problem.



So at least, here is direct link to download APK.

Hi, sure.
Open settings for a single track recording profile. Previously here was option to specify width and color of visible line on a screen. Now, there is an full "style editor" for track lines, so you may define symbols, width, units and so on ...

Vector maps have themes which have different style options, selected either by drop down menus or check boxes.

Hi,
so new Beta version is out. Suggest to delete existing "Presets" (if you will try this feature again), so you have better feel of whole setup workflow :). Otherwise thanks all for a valuable feedback. I cannot satisfy everyone, but I at least try to find something ... between.

Ah it's coming ... last night of year :). Well, it's ... sixth year since start of our work on Locus Map, nice. To be true, I'm often surprised, that You all had enough patience to stay active and nice to me and others, for all these years. You have my big thanks, because no matter what some of you something think (like "he never do important topics from help desk" or "he lives in lowland area only" etc. :) ), your support and feedback has really major influence on app itself. Without you, I should probably already work in some software company where after eight hour of work, tradááá home with clear head :).

Anyway, Thanks! and see You all next year. I have partially done a few interesting things, but none is finished, so I hope, this year will be good for some completion ...

@john_percy : John I'm sorry, it is one of many smaller issues that Locus has with "full screen" mode. Even after all these years, I was not able to find out how to solve it ..

Hello my dear and patience friends,

seems that it's two months since last version. I've probably completely forget to publish new version sooner, funny.

Anyway after two days of testing, it's finally uploading into Google Play. List of changes is quite nice (and long) and even that there aren't any huge changes, there is many smaller and I believe that everybody find something useful there. At least I hope.

Have a nice last days of this year, I'm preparing for bug-fix version (that simply have to come after such changelist) and then really awaits some free days, so excuse me :).

And thanks for help and intensive testing even during winter!

Troubles & Questions / Re: no voice during navigation simulation
« on: October 31, 2016, 09:57:09 »
What does it do? When you have disabled GPS, then there is logically no detected movement. If you then start navigation, movement is based on your movement on map center cross anyway still no speed. And this settings say, that when GPS is off, speed of your map center movement will be define value. And because almost everything in navigation is around your speed, Locus needs it to compute voice TTS announcements.

Guys, I'm glad you find new interface for BRouter useful. I was worried that this solution will be hardly to understand and also Petr with Michal was little "angry" for what I again did, anyway for now I've found it as best what I can do. So enjoy it, it won't be worst :)

@Bango903: hard to help, please read here, mainly part about creating logs. With such vauge description, there is nothing I may do.

@Joachim Buhl: we are talking here about manually clicked route where these via-points are on places where you clicked? This will be changed in next version next week.

Hi guys, version is out ...
this was looongest time between two major versions ever, I think. Hope list of news will have something interesting for everyone.
Thanks also for a valuable feedback, just please criticize (constructively), but don't take example from joeloc above and crtiticize at least few days before planned release. Better as soon as you discover any problem.
Thanks!

EDIT: ah! and thanks @gynta for neverending updates of first post with published versions. I almost always forget to update it :).

Maps / Precise LiDAR Terrain Models of Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Spain
« on: September 11, 2016, 21:17:19 »
Dear Locus map creators and users!

I want to tell you, that I've created several Digital Terrain Models (DTMs), which are based on precise Opendata LiDAR-elevation data of the country's Geographical Institutes. Right now these are:
The improvements in accuracy, quality and fine details of my model's elevations compared to those of the popular SRTM-datasets are enormous. Especially in mountainous terrain.

You can use these new DTMs to create improved, more accurate contour lines in maps. Or you can copy the files for the area of your interest into the correct folder of Locus to improve dynamic elavation values and the shading of the maps in these areas.

The latest versions of Openandromaps in these countries are already based on my DTMs and people say the improvement of contour lines' (and dynamic elevation as well as hill shading) quality in the new maps are excellent.

Have a look at some map comparisons: Map using SRTM-DTM >>> Map using Laser-DTM: http://goo.gl/DM2YxD

There's also a thread regarding the implementation of these DTMs into Openandromaps (in German):

Hi.  Just looked at this for the first time, and skimmed the wiki.  (My head is spinning.)

In the Locus UI, may I suggest: "Wet conditions".  That means, in a general sense, things are wet right now.  "Is wet" implies knowledge of the route, but you haven't been there specifically yet.

For the explanatory text, maybe "Avoid route that may be difficult in wet weather."  (In North American English, the term "road" doesn't include trails, which are part of this.)

(In spite of my user name, I'm a native English speaker; Spanish is just a hobby to support travel.)
