Hello Menion

1. I updated to Beta 3.8. It's not pro any more. By intent?
2. Adding waypoints manually works great now. Blue dots, voice commands. Nice.
3. The option "number of commands"is the setting when Locus creates commands along a track, right? It has nothing to do with the amount of instructions before a turn, right?
4. Did you optimize screen on/off for this version?
5. There is a question left from the 3.7... thread: what is about the "strict" setting in navigation mode. When is it needed and when is it not needed?

Thanks, great progress.

@Christian: thanks :)

@Joachim Buhl:
1. it is not Pro? I hope that Locus Pro is still a Pro!!
2. perfect, thanks for test
3. you are right
4. nope, not yet, still same system as in 3.7.1.6
5. yes, too complicated to describe without picture. Anyway I'll try. Guidance automatic system search for nearest points and switch on them - nearest! Navigation system also search for nearest points, but only in same direction. So if you will ride highway in one way and then in second during same route, Locus should never switch to opposite direction, because of difference in azimuth. And this may be useful also in this MTB. Anyway generally, if you want really "Strict", use "Strict" checkbox. I have no better solution for MTB for now ...

You have used a FREE BETA before and now its a new pure FREE. That's ok.
Update your PRO and have fun

creating a copy of a track reverse with commands work well :)
creating a copy of a track with commands work also well :),
but if i create a reverse copy from a copied track (modified or not), all navigation points are lost :-[

Now all the perfect voice guiding for bikers is broken. You killed the "high, low and medium" options! We have only two choice between simplified and full standard? And in that two cases the Russian variant of voice guiding is broken too (in other words it is not working now), so what can do for proper tts translation?
I am angry!!! And have to roll back to previous version of Locus.
(**** simplifying, you just killed the good working system.)

High Medium and Low is well hidden now in:
Navigation -> Advanced settings -> Number of commands.
same in Guiding.
I hope it helps.
OMG! Thank you! I could not find it quickly on the way. My fault...  :(

I did the previous version of "ru.tts" but did not see until now that new version needed for new version of Locus.
Just made the new ru translation.
Thank you guys!

@balloni55: thanks, I'll check it

@Sersus: Fine, glad that problem solved. And please, don't be so rude immediately after you find some changes you do not like. I'm sure no one is interested in such posts even they may have sense ...

Surprise for me is that TTS file for guidance/navigation stopped work as version 2 (of TTS file) should be enough. And version 2 is required for quite a long time ... hmm

So the elevation change colouring seems not too improved yet. On my testing track the initial part slowly ascending by 120 height meters is still drawn in mostly green tint  :'(. I guess there may be a ultrashort segment having inaccurate elevation setting the steepness maximum to unreal value. Don't know if this is related to the colouring problem but I assume that ascending parts should be more yellow. At least descents seem no more be drawn in blue colour - the most confusing attribute of previous versions  8)

So I have yet another suggestion about the colouring algorithm: make the tints fixed to some global values

hardcore downhill (< -30°) - pure blue
..
mild downhill (-15 - -10°) - blue-green
...
mostly flat segments (-2 - +2°) - pure green
...
mild stepping (+10 - +15°) - yellow
...
hardcore climb (> +30°) - pure red

This scheme has one advantage that all tracks show clearly how steep changes in elevation they have


I also suggest to change the elevation change scheme to two new schemes:
- elevation Δ for colouring by segment absolute elevation change (m)
- steepness for colouring by segment slope (degrees).

Now I'm trying to simulate this problem, but it is not a problem at all, but an intent. If you create a reverse copy of a track, then all commands should be also reversed right? But because Locus do not know how to reverse some commands correctly on certain places (roundabouts mainly), all orders are removed.

yes and as i wrote this work well. For tests i use my jogging round in forest without roundabouts ;)
And so i don´t understand your answer, sorry
So if you see no other solution please deactivate possibility to create a reverse copy of a track which allready included navigation points.
