Default profiles: I like the ones that are there in the current version. (cycling, walking)

Limit in free: agree, even one should do.

Panel really is nice, but didn't test it thoroughly yet.

Btw. Is it an android or a Locus limitation to allow only the system language in Locus? I wanted to try a different language but I did not want to change my phone's language.

got it
replace "รถ" to "oe" INSIDE kmz
perfect, i think it is also a good hint to puplic in manual ;)

my first impression of Locus 2.20.2.1
representation is not perfect, "compassneedle" cover "mapswitch button" text in german language is partly concealed



After i start a track an unneeded window apeares ! if i click the record button i want to start recording, nothing else.
What is the advantage of a "count down" track-startbutton?
After i have started a track this needless window should disapeare automaticly.
Where can i see the status of trackrecording? recording or paused
in my opinion the "orange button" have to change like in all audio/video-players, doublestroke/triangle
if a doublestroke is displayed device is recording
if a triangle is displayed recording is paused

EDIT:
and also in mapview the pencil in the topline should change (colour/blink) if recording is paused.

Maybe the rec button on the panel should change to indicate if there is recording in progress. Maybe a reddish background would look nice (no pulsing, just a bit of red tint)?

I really like the new track record screen - all the information you need at one glance and in big letters!
But i do agree with the others - it would be great to see if a track is being recorded or paused without having to check in the track record screen.
Personally I would even prefer to be able to pause/continue track recording from the main screen with just one click.
And thanks for swapping the coordinate buttons back to how they were - makes much more sence like that!

Thinking further
Button like now (blackish) - no rec
Button reddish - recording
Button reddish and blinking - recording paused.

A constant color does not bother. If it blinks it is a bit irritating, but it comes handy. Having paused a recording, blinking would warn you to stop it finally or resume it.

I am not convinced that one button start stop is of advantage, because it can be tapped by mistake ending a recording that I did not want. But I can be convinced :-)

I went cycling and hiking today with Locus 2.20.2.1. It was actual field test of the new track record screen. It works well and I like it. :)

I noticed that:
- It's not possible to change recording profile on the fly while track recording.

- I opened the track recording panel a lot of times to see the dash board info. So I want the track record button on the left side of the screen at least while recording, as similar as guide button or quick map switch.

- Count down voice from 9 to 1 was not pronounced in Japanese with google text-to-speech, while more than 10 and 'start' were pronounced. It might be a problem of google text-to-speech but not locus. Anyway it's strange.

Does track recording need a separate button for recording when it's active?
I have a button for that on the right panel, being always visible. Would it be possible to detect if it exists and then not display the rec button in the bottom left corner? The duplicate button just takes up space unnecessarily. (Even if it is nice :-) Locus is getting nicer and nicer)
