Troubles & Questions / Question on Track Export
« on: August 13, 2018, 17:46:43 »
I thought I found a bug with track exporting because although I got a 'successful' message after my export to Dropbox, the exported file was nowhere to be found.

I had a track folder 'Jericho' with two tracks in it. Call them Track1 and Track2. From the Tracks folder list I selected the 3 dots next to the name Jericho and selected Export. My expectation was that the exported GPX file would be called 'Jericho' and contain the two tracks. Instead, it exported two separate GPX files of 'Track1' and 'Track2'.

So this is by design, not a bug, I guess. If I select a track 'folder' from the list page, I would really like the option to export the multiple tracks in the folder to a single GPX file export. This is how I am used to working with routes and tracks with my Garmin devices. So maybe you could consider this a feature request. 😉

Using v3.32.2

3.31.2  Bug with Geocaching Tools display.

Geocaching Tools
     Cache Radius Limit
          Select a list

(Used to turn the list color orange when you return to this function later to turn it off)

Now it shows as the screen shot below.

I have found that putting my phone in airplane mode more than makes up for running the GPS. I also set Locus to shut off the GPS when the screen is asleep. I wake it up every 15 minutes or so to verify position and heading and then put it back in my pocket. I will typically have 75% battery at the end of a full day hike.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Cache Note Upload Fails
« on: June 13, 2018, 01:23:35 »
I got the error messages for every cache I tried over 2 days. Today it's working fine again. Maybe it was a web site/API issue on their side.

Troubles & Questions / Cache Note Upload Fails
« on: June 11, 2018, 15:43:31 »
When I select the option to upload a personal cache note, I get the error messages below. However, if I check on the web page, my note was actually uploaded. This just started after the last update.

Discussion/New features / Re: Inconsistent user interface

I have another example of an inconsistency. Tap Add Waypoint. Tap the phone back button. It creates and saves the waypoint. The only way to not save is tap 3 dots and select Discard.

Exiting via the back button should abort and not save. Or maybe even ask Save or Discard before going back to previous screen.

Troubles & Questions / Create shaping points?
« on: April 20, 2018, 03:15:39 »
On a recent road trip, I created a couple routes with Garmin's Basecamp and imported them into Locus as well as our Nuvi. I noticed that the 'silent' route shaping points that I had created were announced while navigating the route with Locus. I did not see an option to change these waypoints to shaping points in Locus. Is this possible?

My wife switches from a skinny 'girly' case for her iPhone to a heavy Otterbox case when we go geocaching. The Otterbox case has a lot of padding, adds a screen protector and claims to be waterproof. Just a thought that you might not need to use a different phone, just get a rugged case for when you need it.

Thanks for the reply. I have emailed Geocaching4Locus for their attention. I suspect that a recent change to the API may have triggered this problem.

I've noticed something odd while using Live Map and puzzles/multi's with corrected coordinates.  I don't know if it's a Groundspeak API limitation or a bug in Locus.

  • I had solved a puzzle cache and updated the coordinates on the web site.
  • The solved coordinates were a significant distance away from the original posted coordinates.
  • I was only using Live Map with Locus.  The cache was not stored offline.
  • On the Locus map screen, the cache icon does not show on the map. See screenshot #1. The solved cache icon should be where the center crosshair is.
  • If I zoom out so that the map screen now includes the original posted coordinates and the corrected location, the cache icon now appears in the corrected location.  In screenshot #2, the cache now shows just below the center crosshair.

Is this a Locus bug, or just a limitation of the Groundspeak API?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Can't access Dropbox
« on: October 06, 2017, 20:42:12 »
Thanks for the info. I was able to successfully import my GPX by selecting it in the Dropbox app and then choosing Locus in the "open with" dialog that popped up. I'm so glad to have found a usable work-around.

Troubles & Questions / Can't access Dropbox
« on: October 05, 2017, 04:21:49 »
Using Locus Pro 3.25.5
I've been Locususing with Dropbox for a long time now.  Today, I get an error message,
"Whoops, a problem  v1_retired" when I want to import from Dropbox.

I logged Locus out of Dropbox and logged back in again.  I get the "allow" prompt and get the same error message as before.  I can access Dropbox from another geocaching app, so I know my login and permissions are correct.

What is the problem here?

Troubles & Questions / Odd problem with Field Notes
« on: September 27, 2017, 17:06:14 »
I had an odd problem with Field Notes yesterday.  I always use "Upload Field Note" option when logging geocaches.  Later, I go online and add and embellish my logs and post them. Then I delete the field notes from Locus and update the geocaches in the Points list.  This has always worked well for me.

Yesterday, I inadvertently left the Log Type as "Found" when I posted a DNF log. I have done this once or twice in the past, and just corrected it online before posting.  After deleting the Field Note from Locus and updating the list, everything would show properly.

Yesterday however, the two geocaches I made this mistake with are still showing up on the Locus map with smileys, even though the log type is DNF.  I tried some corrective steps, but they aren't working.  See my steps and results below.


The red circle highlights one of the caches with the problem.  In Locus as well as online, there is a single log with log type DNF.  Yet it shows a smiley on the map.  It shows with a smiley in the List view, too. There are no saved logs or field notes in Locus.




This is the log itself in Locus.  Again, all field notes have been deleted from Locus




Next, I posted a new (second) DNF field note in Locus.  Locus now shows the DNF on the map, as well as in the List view.




I did an Update in the list, everything is still good.  I deleted the Field Note in Locus, and the smiley came back, even if I did an Update in the list view again.  As I mentioned before, I have made this mistake a couple times in the past, and just deleting the Field Note in Locus after correcting the log online and then updating the list would always take care of this.  Now, it does not work.

This appears to be something new with 3.25.5.  I am using the 'Locus - Addon FieldNotes' v1.4.6.2, if that is significant here.

Troubles & Questions / Multi-select only selects first waypoint

Using 3.25.5.  Selected several waypoints and tap Delete icon. It only deletes the first one. See the screen shots.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Track recording question

I was thinking that it had something to do with the number of trackpoints or something like that.  Thanks for the clarification.
