Ah I though you talk about some "wikipedia" offline usage.

Locus for quite a long time use API from Geonames:
I see. But when you use Wikipedia search in Locus then at the bottom you quote Ben's copyright. But you miss to show Geonames copyright, correct ?

The offline thing is still of interest for me (and others who travel outside 'always on' areas), but you are right, this is a different topic :-)

Currently Locus does use WikiLocation in the resp. search function. Now: based on the author's statement (Ben Dodsdon) WikiLocation is no longer active. Hence the question if Locus uses old data from 2014 or what else ...
TXs and cheers

Hello tigus,
understand. I've changed first idea on help desk to "votable idea". Because we have our internal generating tool connected to some other tools, it is even not so simple to just publish it and because of quite a lot of other work, it make take some time, thanks for understanding.

That is what I assumed :-) But never mind: such operation will never be a push button thing  for just users, but only for people who are at some level of programming or scripting skills.
Hence it would be sufficient to just provide the tool and describe what the input conditions are. And it is our problem how to meet them.

Hi Menion, just wondered if you took the WikiLocation databases from Ben back in 2014 ? Or would you consider using the new and supported and official Wikipedia API that Ben mentions in his services termination post of 2014 ?   TXs and cheers from France Michael

Locus speichert die in einer Datenbank. Dateien wären viel zu langsam. Die ist unter dem Data Ordner, Database, Tracks.db
Locus kann aber ganze Ordner exportieren, dann hat man wieder Files.

1) clean up your internal SD - only 4 MB left will cause problemes for sure
2) then install Locus with working directory on the internal SD
3) put the maps on your external SD (e.g. via USB connected PC or other means)
4) tell Locus where those additional maps are, via the map management function of Locus ("+" .. see manual/help function)

Btw. I tried to place start and end into single line and it's not possible, not enough space.

Did you try,hh:mm - no letters for needed to display. And "20" is unique for the next 83 years :-)

Very disappointing indeed.
Let us define options a way out:
1) Menion can put the end time to the Information tab - there is plenty of room next to "Created" information - trivial to implement, but one additional click to find it and no full overview page at all
2) there is no need to waste space for subtitles in the stats page - use the room to introduce one additional row: start and end time. When re-sorting this page, also put min and max height into one line (beauty contest :-)

You may find a (costly) app in the i-Universe, that can deal with Mapsforge maps. But none of them may support the extra features Locus has (Locus *.map and the themes are aligned).
Going into the i-World comes at a price :-)

Hallo Tom,
einen direkten Fix für Deine Situation erkenne ich anhand der Infos unten leider nicht. Aber ein paar Bemerkungen und Fragen zur weiteren Klärung:
1) Konfigurationen können gesichert werden - wenn Du also eine Situation hast die soweit OK ist: sichern !
2) Wo kontrollierst Du die POIs ? Auf der Karte, oder in der POI-Datenbank. Ich habe hunderte in der DB, aber nur wenige sichtbar.
3) Es gibt eine Funktion die die POIs in der Nähe anzeigt - wiederum wählbar, ob nur die sichtbar geschalteten aufgelistet werden sollen, oder alle die in der Datenbank schlummern.

Don't talk me about this. I also sometimes feels little angry during zoom in/out system when trying to discover some name on the map. And this "angry" (on my side) is required here, to change something that needs more work, like this one :).

Have you looked at the "seperate" Label Layer that Emux uses in Cruiser ? The only solution I know that really properly respects the OSM data and the theme.

Danke. Ich nehme an, dass Du "Karte verschieben" meinst, anstatt "Gehe zu" ?!


Danke,  Christian - ich hatte ein englisches Locus vor Augen und habe direkt übersetzt ::-)
