Good morning,
Again, very good work! Thanks.
I like the Star Wars bootup. Funny.

But I'm missing one thing while geocaching. When I select a cache it was possible to see a "Hint" selection line when pushing the 3 dots on the top right.
In the new version it disappeared. Could you please bring it back or did I miss an option to select in the settings?

 :D :D didn't expected this from You Willy, funny :). I'll consider this on next years 1. April :). With every Locus Map purchase, one girl to clear screen when needed!

@JoxM
please check menu > settings > maps - points & tracks > point popup content. Anyway "hint" settings is currently broken, sorry. Next version will fix it.

EDIT

@joeloc
I'm trying to find out what may be improved on this start-up system.
In case, you now do backup of your settings and then restore this settings, and restart Locus > there won't be any loading of libraries and license check! Restore of backup did not overwrote previous data related to this.
So only what may happen to you, is that Locus internal settings were completely lost. And this may happen only if you re-install whole application or tap on "Clear data" in system application settings. Did you do any of these two options?

Hi Menion
Thanks, but it's not what I meant.

See picture. Before there was an additional line with something like "show hint" (I use German version) on the map screen.

Menion, very good news. I tried nine hours a long recording on Android 4.2 and 7.0 and it works absolutely great on both. See SCR. The difference in altitude is due to the presence of the Galaxy A3 barometer.

Share link used with peak finder app it does not open the view at the coordinates of the point but shows the last view position.

Quick check and all seems fine. You may try to share this into another app, like Google Maps, to see if correct point is shared.

I have no option to choose another app, it starts peak finder directly. But I have gmaps installed as other map app. It is also a strange behaviour.

The peak finder app was for some reason I don't know set as default for coordinates link. So I tried as suggested to open the share button with gmaps and it works perfectly so the bug is not in locus.
Sorry for my wrong bug alert

It has always been like that: When I use the "Favourites" function and call Google Maps (App!) with it and it transfers the map center position:

- Google Maps does center its map to the Locus Center position, but does not add its waypoint (that red balloon symbol). Is there something that can be done on Locus side?

Menion, it is a desire for me to thank you and the people involved super super much many mucho for the most important app on my smartphone :D You are such an important part of the outdoor scene. And still lots of potential customers, I hope. Because in the outdoor world there is so many people having no clue about smartphone navigation, it's weird. If I meet people using their smartphones for this, which is rare, they do it on very basic levels.

Hello, I've found a broken behaviour in track editor
Changing of track shape is unsuccessful + following Locus behaves as route planner without routing outside any mode. Please see the screen capture

One last, totally unnecessary thing about the startup screen: Why is everyone calling it a Star Wars screen, when it mentions a "warp core", which is a Star Trek thing? ;) And the matrix is in there, too.

No, but seriously: I find it funny, too, but I get how it may make the app look not-serious-enough for some people. Especially, if startup fails, people new to Locus might feel being fooled when the last thing they see is "Initialising warp core" (or whatever). Now Menion says in that case another more serious message appears, so that would be ok - i didn't have a startup failure.
So my two cents: Discussion is tedious for us power users, but for newbies, the whole thing might give a slightly wrong impression about Locus.
