Gpsies - imported tracks not shown in Locus
« on: July 21, 2017, 23:25:51 »
Hi folks,
since a while  - don'the know the reason - the download of (bicycle) tracks from Gpsies are not working anymore.
Whatever track I choose, it will appear as "Hirschbergrunde ..." and it's shown everyone the very same track - whatever I download into whatever folder.

Hi Ballons,
my problem is, that every bicycle track I download from Gpsies results in the track shown in the picture!
I hope the description is somehow possible to understand?

not at all :-[
there are different options to download data from gpsies ;)
i suspect you use the gpsis app, in your screenshot there are 3 download arrows top left visible,
if so you can try to clear the cache of this app, login again and try to download different content.

i use the way inside locus to download content from gpsies
run locus/menu/Web services/GPSies/log in > have fun :)

If you have furthermore download problems please describe your workflow step by step

Hi Balloni,

using the webs service gpsies from internally Locus is quite painful and doesn't show any results - at least for me if I'm e.g. looking for bicycle tracks around kressbronn +/- 30 km. This is strange, since I know there a a lot using gpsies the other way round - see below.

I'm using the gpsies-app on my smartphone (Galaxy A5 2016)
 - without login - I'll have an account but that wasn't necessary yet - I choose the search function
 - with some clicks into the boxes I go for
            "bicycle" once more "bicycle"... then
            "all" and/or "roundtrip
            radius ( 5 or 10 km)
            City:  Kressbronn
            length:  52 km
           
Staying with this I get e.g. "Kressbronn-Hopfenradweg" a 44,0 km roundtrip
I choose this via click and get further information about start address, elevation ... and the icons Downlad KML and  Download GPX
I choose "Download GPX" and automatically Locus opens up asking me where to store the track
I download it into an available folder "Bodensee" - wiht the option "Show track on map after import"
after download the track is shown on locus map >> somewhere else than Bodensee region like shown in the above attachment
checking the folder where it's stored I get the file as of 12.4 km named "Hirschberg-Runde (Wandern) ..."

:(((
Is this description any better ???

Good day Rob,
this starts to be interesting for me as well.

Search in GPSies integration does not return you any tracks? May you post a screenshot of your configuration on search screen? Maybe any parameter is incorrectly set?

Anyway I just tried two different tracks (tapped on download GPX) and both correctly imported into Locus folder. Maybe you should try latest Locus Map Beta version. There were a huge number of background changed in import system since last stable public version, so maybe there was a problem in Locus itself which is now fixed. Anyway for me it looks like GPSies app does not rewrite previously downloaded data and send to Locus reference to old downloaded file.

Hi menion, Balloni,

I tried to delete the cache of the gpsies app - which is not possible  :(

I posted a note to Klaus - the developer of gpsies - and asked for a hint / some help here.

I even don't know if the cache issue is a reason for my "problem"

It's a pain for a user if he's trapped between 2 systems / apps    :-[

As I see, these tracks are downloading simple to sdcard/Download directory on my device. So you may empty this folder and check what GPX files are downloaded here.

gpsies - Locus Pro : still not interworking
« Reply #9 on: July 25, 2017, 14:58:32 »
Hi menion, Balloni,

I updated gpsies app and was able to choose   ONE different track to download to locus tracks.
Second - other - track  >> the very same issue : same track from above in the locus track folder ... now twice !!

Are you - menion - in close contact with Klaus from gpsies ??

PS
I'm running Locus Pro version 3.24.3
PPS
I deleted all files in any download folder beforehand !

Yes we communicate from time to time.

So when you deleted this folder and then tried to import two tracks, what is then in this folder? These two tracks as two GPX files?

Hi menion,

it's becoming more and more mysterious : :-[

I deleted the download folders and the track folder in Locus
I downloaded a file "Obst und Weinbau Immenstaad.gpx" from gpsies - which I can find in the download folder
Nevertheless it occurs - after automatic connection with Locus - there in the track folder as a different track "Tettnang Richtung Wasserburg ..."  :'(

Rob, sorry, but I'm completely confused what you are doing with your device and these two apps. If possible. let's start from begin.

1. flush your sdcard/download folder so it will be completely empty
2. start Locus and prepare one track folder that will also be completely empty
3. start GPSies app, choose one track and tap on GPX button
4. choose Locus Map and import track into folder
5. check Locus track folder, is track there?
6. check sdcard/download folder, is GPX file there?

If all is ok, repeat steps 3. > 6. with second different! track. In track folder in Locus should be then two different tracks and in download folder also two different GPX files.

Hi menion,

for me it seems more and more that the problem is on gpsies-side !

1. cleared download folders / delete track folder of Locus
2. started gpsies app
3. searched for first track in gpsies around hometown Kressbronn = "Bodolz-Dornier-Museum"
4. clicked downloaded GPX button in gpsies
5. connection to locus was started automatically
6. choose empty track folder in Locus to download
7. started download via locus
8. Result :
8a.  download folder smartphone contains the chosen track Bodolz.gpx
8b)  track folder in Locus contained "Tettnang Richtung Wasserburg.gpx" a total other file

did as you said and started gpsies app once more
1. choose a bicycle track in France called "Cluny"
2. downloaded track via gpsies ... automatically was connected to Locus
3. choose the track folder with the above mentioned 1 route
4. download started
...
5. Result
5a) Locus track folder shows now two times the very same track "Tettnang Richtung Wasserburg.gpx" with the very same lenght >> tracks are identical
5b) download folder on smartphone shows chosen track: "cluny.gpx"

I tried to understand this and went to gpsies-app once more.
The track which shows up in Locus every time -"Tettnang Richtung Wasserburg.gpx" - is the oldest track (April 15th 2017)  in the "chronological sequence tab" of my gpsies-app

But how the heck can it be, that the right tracks are downloaded to smartphone downolad folder and in the progress in locus become the other track ???

Best regards, RobRoy aka Rainer
