Free chat / Re: Best phones regarding GPS
« on: Yesterday at 22:36:15 »
With a Samsung A5 I measure battery loss of ~2.5% per hour with track recording enabled. So that's ~20 hours for 50% battery loss. With navigation enabled the loss increases to ~3.5% per hour. The A5 has a proper pressure sensor which gives me far better elevation data than previous phones. A previous Sony Z1 had similar power consumption when only Locus was running but it's elevation data was quite inaccurate.

3.35.1: on an Android 8.1 phone a change of presets now displays the old preset change msg (again) for a ~2s "Preset X loaded & all preferences set", but on an Android 7 tablet a change of presets now doesn't display any msg. I vote for this latter UX, but my point is behavior is different on two different devices.

I know it adds an additional two seconds delay, on the second side, it was in beta test for more than two weeks and you are first who complain. I'm also not yet 100% happy with it so "complain registered" :)
2nd to (very mild) complain ;-)

I didn't see this new behavior in latest beta? i.e. tap preset & green msg displayed; a while back toast? msg was ~2s then recent beta the msg was a very brief flash. I'd like no msg at all. Very minor issue (for me) but agree with @tapio seems a time waster.

hmm, this should make no difference.
@menion - OK thanks - I have no other explanation why Locus locks up with RideWithGPS export then.

If you think the cost is too high &/or you don't think there are any relevant updates for the LoMap(s) you have or or areas/ regions you are riding in, just don't update them. It's your choice.

when to send logs: complicated question.

In case of app crash: exact steps to simulate > not needed, otherwise > always
In case of app does not response: best are steps to simulate, the log may not be always useful, but without simulation, we do not have anything better
Other cases: depends but usually description is enough. I ask for log in case, I see that it may help.
@menion - another thought of Locus not responding - I have disabled auto-sync for my Google account. This means I manually sync email if/when I rarely check email on my phone. Could this explain the lockup?

hmmm, export to RideWithGPS should "call" email client on your device. Really no error message? Back hardware button do really nothing? Are you using any email client on your device?
@menion - no error message, back button unresponsive (as I said), using stock Google Gmail. Should I send a log? At what point should I create the log? Just after Locus is frozen I guess.

Track export to RideWithGPS: Locus locks up at Points/Tracks export summary screen. Close & back buttons are ignored. Locus is unresponsive. I can only kill Locus & restart. This bug could have begun a long time ago as I do not normally export to RideWithGPS, it was really a mistake. Export to GPX file is fine. The first time recently this happened I thought it could have been because of a large track (200km) but today I mistakenly did another RideWithGPS export with smaller 100km and same result.

« on: November 17, 2018, 07:51:11 » & Pro 3.34.1 - I notice the message regards change of preset is now displayed so quickly it is nearly too quick to read. Previously it stayed on the screen a little too long. It could be a little longer to allow reading, or alternately don't display at all? When a user selects a preset do they need to be told further?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Backup manager, Restore is not complete
« on: November 14, 2018, 00:24:19 »
1) Panels & buttonds (Controlling / Panels & buttonds, "Set functions panels") has not been restored.
I find it is necessary to restart Locus (or even restart phone) in order to display correct function panels (or presets) after a restore. I have reported this elsewhere.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Gradient chart artifact when zoomed in
« on: November 07, 2018, 22:38:57 »
The issue is the shaded triangle area I have highlighted inside red rectangle - with perfect straight line - it is not real - it's a Locus chart calculation or drawing error. The artifact varies with pan & zoom - you can see the real thin line of bolder color for the proper gradient chart. Only related to config.cfg in as much as Y axis zoom requires a setting change.

And new "hidden" Expert settings menu
@menion can you please remind me how to enable the Expert settings. After recent un/re-install I lost this "settings". I was reminded by Balloni's screen cap of the possibility of changing track chart colors. A did a system-wide search for "expert" but only found in this most recent post. Strange.
