Troubles & Questions / Re: Older versions, where?
« on: April 10, 2018, 12:16:30 »
hey guys, you really need to rethink the "older versions" thing !   currently the GPS issues are bad, accuracy is gone, turning on/off GPS in locus settings does nothing to the actual GPS usage, and I'm seeing BIG battery drains in both the recent beta and pro versions.

I'm going to have to tell people that "updating is bad, don't do it right now" and that never sounds good. :-(

the Duraforce (4.5"), Duraforce xd (5.7") and Duraforce pro have been very good for me.

here are two mounts I've used on motorcycles doing hard Enduro , that work very very well.

and one that is even better

the Duraforce do not need cases.

The Duraforce reviews on Amazon don't look too good. What's the screen visibility like on sunny days?

It's about average as far as smartphones go. It's NOT a transflective display, so I won't be screaming with high visibility, but I use it on my bicycle and motorcycle in full sunlight without issue. It's tough enough to handle hugging trees several times each weekend on enduro mode, and dropped into a fire (twice!), along with some creek skipping. :-)

Troubles & Questions / Re: Geo tagged photos layer is broken ?

thank you @menion, geotagged photos layer is working nicely again now :-)

I was just prepping a tutorial for how to use it and realized it had issues, so I posted here. Now to get started on that youtube tutorial again :-)

Troubles & Questions / Geo tagged photos layer is broken ?
« on: February 06, 2018, 13:51:03 »
I've added both internal and external dcim directories to locus , but no images are showing when I enable the photo option in layers.

Is it broken in 3.29.1 ?

Thank you !

Troubles & Questions / Re: points near me

This is while planning more does, not moving. The buttons touch areas are so small and the border area touch for "more info" surrounds it, so it usually registers a press as "more info" instead of just "view"

Troubles & Questions / points near me

using the points near me button, the "turn on eyeball" area of touch is so small that I often instead select the "show info" pane.

could you increase the area of the "turn on eyeball" so that turning on several waypoints was an easier process, and fewer accidental options would happen?

Troubles & Questions / POI search crash
« on: May 19, 2016, 14:00:09 »
Search POI >> touch poi returned from search >> crash

repeatable always.
'view' POI = no crash
'selecting' POI = crash

Wishlist / Re: Star rating for tracks
« on: April 15, 2016, 13:15:57 »
Hi guys,
i would like to suggest to introduce a kind of star rating for stored tracks.
Using over 400 tracks make it difficult to remember good / medium / less good tracks.
Three light yellow stars _behind_ the name of the track would be useful. And the option to set rating in track manager.
Prio: 99


I wanted to ressurect this thread, to bring a couple of things to light:

1- it's a really good idea to save each track in a folder like "TODAY" or "Locus Tracks" or somewhere, and always save them in the same place, for today. That way each track is easy to find, if you want to "sort by distance" in that folder.

2- once the track is saved, and you've decided to edit the track (trim un needed stuff) make a new tracklist (if you don't have one already) that pertains to the activity. I use naming schemes like "hiking with the kids" and then name the particular track "hiking to the falls on orr road" or similar.

the waypoint tracks/routes handling database in locus is FANTASTIC compared to ancient garmins, if you apply a little bit of customization when saving files. exploiting locus abilities while saving those files means you can have matching WAYPOINT and route/ track directories (and groups!) so that finding waypoints and tracks for a journey is very easy.

naming schemes aren't a star system, i know, but it is very easy to make each track memoriable this way.

try it :)

Troubles & Questions / Offline map database errors ?
« on: October 04, 2015, 18:51:18 »
Yesterday I attempted to switch between 3-4 offline map sources which have worked well in the past. The phone slowed down considerably, and I got the same error "Map blah database problem!" in red, but I couldn't record the exact error problem.

It did this 3-4 times, but after selecting that map again, it corrected , after I rebooted the phone. Thankfully, my track recording wasn't effected by this as I was stationary at the time.

Is there a log I can send you about the problem, or a known way to fix the error in the future ?

thanks :D

I think close to your needs is this idea: . It has my support and I would like to implement something like this, so feel free to vote there.

ahh, i see, thank you ! :D

OK I understand wanting to keep the focus on hiking/biking. the main reason I've wanted a countdown or count up odometer is fuel range of two stroke bikes. I could see this also being used in electric bicycling, etc

currently I just use the tracking function and display mph/total distance/battery percentage, but a odometer would be nice.

the kids like to see their tracks from walking to/from school everyday too.

anyway, I understand, keep up the good work.

Wishlist / Fuel / Milage Gauge ?
« on: September 09, 2015, 13:15:28 »
I use locus for a lot of off road enduro. It would be great if it were possible to have a fuel gauge, that could be reset each time I filled up again.  What I do now is record from the start, and start a new track with each fillup, and use a custom dashboard to show
Track Distance (full)
GPS coordinates (on one line)

but it would be really nice to have a fuel gauge that showed miles till reserve, or miles covered.

Any interest ? thanks !

I am a long term contributor to OSM, using a Garmin eTrex Legend until four weeks ago, when I discovered Locus Map.  I installed Locus Map Pro and have been impressed beyond words by what I have experienced in this short time.  It has breathed new life into my enthusiasm for OSM.  More than that, though, is the community: I believe a product is enhanced immensely if it has a good following, and forums speak volumes for good or bad.  I feel it should be expressed that your dedication to Locus Map is obvious.  I wish to thank you and gynta for the help you have provided to me over this period; it is rare to find this level of assistance and commitment.  I am so appreciative, I installed Locus Map Pro on my wife's 'phone yesterday.  Following the latest release, it seems an appropriate occasion to thank you both and wish you, menion, a well-deserved holiday!
Please place this post where you think it appropriate.
dang, that's cool !!
