@Balloni55: The scenario is same for motorways or paths. The path may be turning left when you are to take the right fork. The only reasonable hint is to keep right.

.. but in this example it´s only one forest path leading left i have to go and  not a  multi-lane highway.

There's a grade5 track going to the east, maybe it's not really visible:

http://brouter.de/brouter-web/#zoom=19&lat=48.919378&lon=8.867397&layer=OpenStreetMap&lonlats=8.866785,48.919824|8.867989,48.919198&nogos=&profile=trekking&alternativeidx=0&format=geojson

Only grade1 tracks get a higher "priority classifier",  your grade2 and this grade5 are considered equal-priority, and therefore you get the keep-right hint.

Nice discussion guys, thanks!

With this comes one question from me as well. It happen to me already sometimes then I ride probably similar track in woods like @balloni55 ... thin road for one bike and now I hear "keep right". Isn't in such cases better to say "slightly left" or "left" (based on angle of course) command instead of this, which is more suitable for multi-line highway? I'm asking because in such cases, some hint about expected angle (like now the road will be slightly to left) should be more useful then "keep right", which may also means "ride straight because there is another road to left". Just my two cents.

Such a hint is not about the turns and angles. It is about the forks, if the one *relatively* more to left or more to right is to be taken.

I do not see "keep right(way) / left(way)" in this scenario confusing..   If I would hear (slight) left because a left turn just before the fork, I would be confused. Should I go left left or right left ?

I remind myself some Indiana Jones scene about carriages on the cave railway. For them was keep right / left quite essential. Sometimes for downhill MTB as well, as the choice cannot often be undone.

Thanks Libor! Understand. Maybe I'm just too used to hear "keep right" on a highway and then it sounds little bit funny in thin forest path :)

Hmm you have a track recording widget with Beta version (Locus Map FREE)? :) Sorry, it is only in Pro version, so in this case it is needed to wait on public version.

@Andrew Heard: understand, thanks. If you find something that may helps, let me know. Seems that publishing version next week (and not this one) was a good idea. I'll try to get out for some longer testing because of this and as well, because of Willy's (0709) issues. Thanks
I tried identical navigation test today as last week (in which navigation line wrongly appeared transparent) but this time worked perfectly. I have no idea why different. Oh well.

Since the latest beta was labeled "release candidate" already if I remember correctly, I once again want to point out the super weird strangeness of the new map items interface:

I'm really not a Locus beginner, but I have a seriously hard time figuring out how this is working. I navigate to some folder with my kmzs in the new map items dialog. Then I load a file by clicking on the "eye". Then Locus blocks and I wait for half a minute while it loads. Then I click on the three dots sub menu of the same file and select "center element" to actually see it displayed on my map. Not really a funny procedure to start with.

It gets even worse when I want to hide the file again though. Because apparently, I need to remember the exact sub directory and name where I loaded it from and navigate there manually(!) from some root folder. Only then I can turn off the "eye icon" to hide. Thats really pure horror if you deal with more than just one overlay and have them sorted in nested directories.

Apparently there is also a separate new "sidebar" menu for map items that shows all the loaded overlays. But strangely, the sidebar thingy cannot unload anything. I can "dive into" a kml/kmz and hide specific elements, but not simply unload the whole thing.

This whole process seems completely unlogical to me. I just cant understand how it's supposed to work. Maybe I am missing something very obvious here?

@Andrew Heard: thanks, but .. you know ... it's needed to simulate this problem, so if you find something useful, please let me know.

@joeloc: thanks for a feedback. You are same as @voldapet . One day before release, he, same as you, write me essay what should be changed in this new "Map items" screen. Well, nice thanks. Anyway I do not understand, why you write it day before release when this feature is in Locus for testing almost two months!!! So sorry, but to next version, there won't be any serious changes.

To your problems ... quick return to map and back on same place ... use small bottom left "home" button. Loading dialog ... yes it's there, same as in previous "items" tab. Neverending story with cumberstone UI that break fluent work etc. ... I know, don't worry.

Anyway feature is in active development so I register these issues, thanks.

Hi guys, version is out ...
this was looongest time between two major versions ever, I think. Hope list of news will have something interesting for everyone.
Thanks also for a valuable feedback, just please criticize (constructively), but don't take example from joeloc above and crtiticize at least few days before planned release. Better as soon as you discover any problem.
Thanks!

EDIT: ah! and thanks @gynta for neverending updates of first post with published versions. I almost always forget to update it :).
