New version was updated this morning ten minutes before i left the house for a bike tour.
The new center cross cursor is tooooo small. It was missed the whole day :( my eyes are older than 14 years!
...

Hi Christian,

I'm older than 14, too. I'm using gyntas map cursors from locus store with better visibility.

I'm still waiting for some serious reason.

My reasons are simple - simplifications - do you know settings "Center cross"? I want to completely remove it. Current "map center" has less and less usage. Now it is possible to tap on everything on a map, it is not needed to hover it with center as before. So I'm testing something between old center cross and small black circle (result of mentioned settings). And something between is just smaller center cross. ;). Simple ...

about rec widget.
I don't know whenever you fixed some things but now it works nearly well for me.
but... :)
...after popup and minimize Locus again, the App should also stay in background after hit "add new wp" on rec panel again.

Using center cross for "where i am?" exactly, for add /measure route often and for switching center in map. In my opinion there should be an indicator for map center necessarily!
Guys, a couple of weeks ago I got my first glasses in my life for reading purposes only :o
So fiddling with Locus outdoor without glasses is difficult to me. Taking the center cross away is gonna a big mess. Menion, I will be your hardest critic for usability and readability outdoor...
And I dont want to create a thread in help desk "please bring the old center cross back".
So please bring the old center cross back!

It looks a bit as if some options in cache Listing are greyed out and not clickable. But they are...  That should be fixed into black

This problem is visible in some other screens, too.  Eg in POI view

By the way. In German it should be named "Logs"  instead of "Loggs"

@jusc: thanks for times, fixed

@gynta:
#21: thanks, improved
#22: hmm here is very simple function - if Locus is running, display big screen for adding a waypoints, if Locus is not running, use small quick screen. You think, that widget should always call this small dialog?

@Christian: and others ... hmm and what about just little bit increase visibility of this new cursor and adding exact old cursors as an item to Store so it will be really easy to add old styles back without extra work here with downloading from forum etc.?

@Diddi: unfortunately these icons are directly from add-ons, so you have to forward your "issue" directly to add-on developers, not to me.

Hi!

Do you plan to change the menu to a Hamburger menu like in GMail oder Playstore?

My reasons are simple - simplifications - do you know settings "Center cross"? I want to completely remove it. Current "map center" has less and less usage. Now it is possible to tap on everything on a map, it is not needed to hover it with center as before. So I'm testing something between old center cross and small black circle (result of mentioned settings). And something between is just smaller center cross. ;). Simple ...
I would also like to add that removing the center cross completely would be a "killer" for me, too.
If you want a serious reason: The finger is never as exact as the cross. I appreciate that almost everything is tappable now on the map screen  but for all kinds of editing, you'll need some sharp tool, not a blunt one like your finger. As long as not all smartphones are like Samsung's Note series, we need the crosshairs!
However, after discovering gyntas map cursors in the shop, I'm totally fine with having a smaller, less intrusive default center cross. Just please drop the idea of removing it altogether - I can't imagine would the upside would be, but the downside would be enormous...
Another thing I would be fine with is if hovering the center cross over a point wouldn't do anything anymore - the old title pop-ups are more disturbing than helpful now anyways.

guys, do not worry too much and try to understand me, because

"do you know settings "Center cross"? I want to completely remove it" - means I wants to remove this settings (which already happen), not center cross itself.

I've improved selector for map cursors with ability to quickly load them over store, so if there will be any interesting cursors, we will gladly place them to store.

@Christian: hmm funny fix, you're welcome :)

@readony24: hmm you mean something like this?
