If changes happen on both Smartphones, one set of changes will be lost. You need to have a clear "master/slave" governance to make this kind of sync work.

Wear for Locus Map / Re: Wear for Locus Map beta testing
« on: February 21, 2018, 18:12:48 »
I had a first ski day recently. For this activity (skiing) the map is not too very helpful. It simply is very small - but at least it was mostly too close (zoom) for me. Or is the default zoom according to what was last selected on the phone? Then I think it should not be the "same pixels" as on the phone, but about the same area covered (with less resolution) - so you have the same overview. But other people may think different, so it should be configurable.
Zooming out was quite tedious, often not recognized, or activating the wipe-down (maybe locate them left and right?) (I have a Fossil Q Explorist). And of course is not too fast - maybe the reason why the usual pinch-to-zoom is not supported?

More than the map I would have liked the dashboard - but as said would be interested in some more/other values like absolute altitude, max speed or (when wearing belt) HF rate.

So looking forward to tap more of the full potential soon  :)
Thanks for reading.

Sony SmartWatch3 is not Android Wear watch, but it might by supported by a different add-on which Menion made, but I would have to ask. Anyway we would like to concentrate our support to Android Wear for now, so for Locus I would recommend Android Wear instead.

Sorry, my mistake. Menion pointed out that Sony SmartWatch3 is running Android Wear actually. I checked our device compatibility list and Sony SmartWatch3 should be supported by the Wear for Locus Map add-on.

Maybe please start another topic here at the forum if you want to recommend some watch by other users.

You can find some AW watch here
https://www.android.com/wear/
or here
https://www.amazon.com/b?node=15203391011

Android Wear tends to be a bit more expensive than the watch you have posted unfortunately. Depending on your region, these AW watches might be quite affordable - Moto 360 2gen, LG Watch Sport, Huawei Watch 2, Asus ZenWatch 3 (not so much outdoor/fitness)
But there are many other, please see links above and feel free to start a new topic to get some more recommendations from other users.

Does somebody knows if the Xiaomi Amazfit "Pace 2" and "Pace 2S" watches are (will be?) 100% OK for this purpose...?





just check for android wear. so No


Testet the newest versions many times: no crash at start and no other problems. just working.

My only whish: rotating map on the watch.

I think there is no "the best suitable models for Locus". The addon can run on newer and on older devices too. I have Samsung Gear Live (it was released in 2014) and the addon works fine for me.
There is no special requirements for the watch because this addon is only a visual extension of the phone applicaton. It doesn't use any special hardware of the watch (eg. hearth rate/gps etc...) it shows only what the phone collected.
I suggest that you choose a watch what best fits your requirements (functionality/looks like etc...) and then you can ask it here may someone has experience with that watch with Locus.
The only thing what I would consider if bought a watch the hardware buttons. In my experience the touch screen is unusable when it raining. The actual addon doesn't support buttons but maybe it will in the future.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: Server problem for LoMaps...?
« on: September 01, 2016, 07:46:45 »
OK, thank you, and really sorry: I understand now that I was trying something not possible...!
As Poutnikl mentioned, there are options. I am using BRouter since long time and like it very much.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: Server problem for LoMaps...?

Hmm, and why do you think you should be able to do any Locus LoMaps routing when off-line ?

I originally missed the off-line mode in your  first post, thinking you had just troubles with online routing service.
In off-line mode you obviously cannot access any network servers.

Do you have installed and properly configured any 3rd party off-line router, like BRouter or GraphHopper ?

As Locus does not have any off-line routing capabilities itself.
It does not have any own routing engine.
Additionally, used format of MapQuest vector map and Mapquest map manipulation libraries
do not allow using the LoMaps vector data for routing.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus on a very small screen
« on: May 28, 2016, 06:15:54 »
Nono place is fine, it's not a problem. I just don't know what should I do here. Completely new version of Locus optimized on this tiny rounded screen? This is impossible task, sorry. Locus is too complex to be fully usable on such rounded screen and invested time simply doesn't worth it.
