Display Battary Charging
« on: March 16, 2017, 00:11:11 »
i use Locus for a long time during long journeys.
I hab a hub dynamo (SON28) and the USB-Werk on my bike.
I there any possibilty to display if the battery is charging.
I must close Locus to get this info.
Its not funny to have an empty phone at the evening of the trip.

Good day rubel,
understand. For me it looks like some task for one of many many applications on google play that deal with batteries and offer many tools that may help here, like some notifications, warnings, statistics etc.

I personally do not think that such tasks needs to be integrated directly in Locus Map. Thanks for understanding.

I have same bike/ charge system. For me it is sufficient to display battery % on dashboard. If you see this % going up slowly over time you surely know the phone is charging? I also use GSam app with custom alarm to make sound when battery % goes above threshold, eg 60%. Then I stop the charging until it goes back below 40%.
