Troubles & Questions / Re: crash selecting Backup directory

And difference: you may see on your own ;). And if now ... one method uses Google own system (these directories are then also writable for the app!), second, Locus file browser, then select directories only for read-only.
@menion - interesting - thanks for the info. For the use-case of Locus special directory selection would it be simpler & more consistent to use the Locus file browser for all directories? It seems more intuitive than Google's own system.

@freischneider I don't believe this topic is directly related to beta.

@menion beta: No reply but I confirm the actual download is now successful; I assume fix was related to "sea" area. Thanks.

@menion beta: minor suggestion & not directly related to beta, but when I go to LoStore & tap Download (icon) for an existing map then tap DOWNLOAD button there is no feedback the download has commenced (or not) until I return to the main screen & see the notifications. On 1st attempt I thought maybe I didn't tap the button, so tapped the DOWNLOAD button a 2nd time, and hence two notifications of download.

Now working in beta thanks. Still unsure why using two different folder selection methods. One method in Export folder selection, but different in Backup folder selection. No mention of bug fix in release notes.

folder selection #1 UI for these folders: mapsOnline, maps, mapItems, export, geocaching
folder selection #2 UI for these folders: mapsVector, backup, srtm

Troubles & Questions / crash selecting Backup directory
« on: August 13, 2018, 12:40:31 »
Locus Pro 3.32.2 - settings > Misc > Default Directories > crash when I select a new Backup directory /storage/emulated/0/Download/Locus/ although an identical selection process works perfect for the Export directory. I also observe the directory selection UI is different for the two - why? Export directory selection uses simple "file explorer" UI whereas Backup directory selection uses elaborate graphics with file cabinet picture. See uploaded YouTube video of crash

No problems. How does the BIN icon work then if every notification must be swiped anyway?

Troubles & Questions / allow deletion of unconfirmed notifications
« on: August 11, 2018, 00:53:56 »
Below are screen captures of unconfirmed notifications. When I tap the Delete button I get the message that I need to confirm & delete. I can appreciated there are arguments for and against being overly cautious to not accidentally delete but I would argue to just allow users to delete unconfirmed notifications without having to swipe. I had a situation where I had multiple attempts to download elevation data, so lots of notifications. Why have the Delete button at all if you have to swipe individually?

Troubles & Questions / can't download elevation data from store
« on: August 11, 2018, 00:44:20 »
I successfully bought & downloaded a new LoMap. When I now attempt to download the elevation data:

I get an unhelpful programmer-style message below:

When I manually check with a file manager the file in question /0/Locus/data/srtm/S26E109.hgt it is indeed zero bytes in length. This file corresponds with the Indian Ocean:

There is sufficient free disc space. The folder is in default location. This file would not have previously been in the folder before download as it is a new map; so Locus Pro has created this zero byte file. Any suggestions?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Reverse Track for navigation
« on: August 10, 2018, 11:53:00 »
I think that I perhaps didn't explain the problem. I cannot reverse (invert or whatever) an existing track in locus. There is no option for that (non that I could find).
try this: from track list > tap on track > tap caret ^ button (bottom/ right) > tap Create copy > check box: Change route orientation, also note it IS possible to select a different folder > tap CREATE.
 I hope that helps?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Reverse Track for navigation
« on: August 09, 2018, 00:48:47 »
I've used this feature a few times. I'm not sure why destination folder selection is so important? The new track has a unique filename; so simply long tap on that reversed track, tap the Move button, and select the desired destination folder? More important to me (although not a high priority for suggestion to developer) is that any navigation commands for the original track are not also recalculated/ reversed for the new track.

I noticed this below yesterday on long bike ride - I must admit the phone is quite sick & being replaced; however the "last GPS fix" kept ticking over each second suggesting the phone was hearing something, however the rest of the screen suggests the other half of the phone brain had gone to sleep

Not a bug report just for information about power saving mode of my device.
Today I tested the battery saving mode on the a5 2017 Samsung
@lor74cas - thanks for report - I have just bought this phone so am hoping no power saving problems with Locus.
I note has inbuilt barometer - do you find the ascent measurement more accurate than a phone without inbuilt barometer?

Du you have an example? What brf files do you use, maybe you can upload one? I get good results for 90 year old people. 3 km/h in flat areas. Is the ETA depending from something inside the brouter brf files maybe?
@tapio - example in Australia so may not be of use to you? "ordinary" downloaded BRF file. I can send track GPX & link to BRF if useful? Saving tracks - no problems for me. I have no idea how ETA is calculated, maybe based on selected profile - it seems quite good (PS. @Menion earlier reply confirms my experience).
