mime type / file handling for locus map files
« on: December 26, 2011, 19:29:55 »
It'd be nice to click on a rmap/map/tar/etc file in any file manager and have locus launch with that map.

it's not so simple to add this feature to locus and to be true, I really do not see much sense in it ...

I just thought it would be convenient while I played around with file explorers and rmaps. No clue how file types work on android though, so if it's too complex, forget it. As long as you can open gpx, everything is fine :).

you may include some testing directory into map search path, so locus will during start check new maps in your testing directory. This can be set in settings > misc (if you don't already use it)

Sure. But as a computer geek, i just like every file in my file browser to be associated with something useful. Non-clickable items irritate me :).

hehe funny :), looks like you'll be same "stickler" as me (except I don't worry too much about associated files) ;)
