you don't have to live with this. It's a problem and have to be fixed!

New test version, try it please. Should solve both problems, with multi-sql maps and auto-loading

Also take care about map icons. Just in case. I did quite huge change that will not be visible on huge devices, but all devices with 800x480 and lower screen, should now see icons very clear and not blurred as before.

@tommi: it's on discussion. I personally do not feel this is needed. Locus remember last opened tab so you go immediately back where you were before.

Hi Menion, yes I know the  tab is remembered. I didn't mention that I'd like to use both points and tracks in any order and just want to avoid the additional tap to change the tab.

Version 2.9.2.8
« Reply #23 on: March 17, 2013, 19:51:20 »
"my location" is death - long life "GPS On/Off" :roll:

For my understanding:
If i see a "play" sign  ->  i press the button when i want "play".

Now here we see a "GPS On" -> So i press this button if i want to switch On GPS

It's not clear for me
it's a status indicator or it's a switch ?

about color: OFF should be grey as before.


About poll:
im not using quick map switch - i know what map i have to use.
So i vote for "Another (discuss below)"
And i dont understand the hype.
There are much more topics with lot of votes.
and this topic has 2 votes on satisfaction...

"my location" is looong problem. "My location" is much precise term to describe what it do then "GPS On/off". Anyway after usability testing we discovered very surprise result. From 8 people, only 0 was able to turn on GPS in Locus. Nice ... after this update, 4 people from 4 was able. So even if really don't like "GPS on/off" button, it much more clear to basic users then "My location" ... unfortunately :)

About poll - option "Another" is more for another option, not for "I don't care". If you don't use Quick map switch", then ignore this. And why poll? Because it's topic related to this test version, because it allow me to see more opinions, not just X stars as on GetSatisfaction where I see how many people stared it, but not how many people don't like this idea ... simple

EDIT: poll removed. I did decision by myself. I'm sure you'll like it ;)

Restore of settings doesn't work (2.9.2 -> 2.9.2.8):

Hi Menion,
I wanted to work actively with the recent test version 2.9.2.8.
To have a reasonable environment I wanted to paste my settings (settings + right panel mainly) from Locus Pro 2.9.2 to Locus Free 2.9.2.8.
1) I did a complete backup in Locus Pro 2.9.2
2) I did a restore from 1) in Locus Free 2.9.2.8 (with selected "Settings" only)
3) There was a toast "successful" or similar
4) But at least the right panel is unchanged, other settings like track recording profile was taken

- Doesn't work this in general between Pro and Free?
- Is the restore broken in Free 2.9.2.8?
- Else?

Thanks,
tommi

P.S.: The change back to GPS is from my pov a bad decision because GPS is simply wrong. I would prefer (as I mentioned at the time we discussed that in the past) the term Android is using: Location and nothing else.

hi tommi,
  right panel, top panel and main menu settings are now stored in separated file on your card, so it is not included in backup/restore system of your current version

"GPS on/off" .. as I wrote above. I personally also do not like this description. "My location" is much more precise, but important here is if it's clear also to users. And "My location" unfortunately really isn't. I'll think anyway about it ...

My intention was not to question your motives.
I only want to see better implementation of the graphical buttons.
So i have to repeat :) :

For my understanding:
If i see a "play" sign -> i press the button when i want "play".
Now here we see a "GPS On" -> So i press this button if i want to switch On GPS*
It's not clear for me

about color: OFF should be grey as before.
*) but that was an incorrect assumption..

Ahm, and how can I get the panel settings integrated to Locus Free? Free and Pro share the same folder on my internal sd...

hmm ... try to import backup from your pro version, then close test version, delete file locus/data/config/panels_settings.lb and then start your test version, this may helps
