I'm using NoGo areas to force router to use the right way. Small problem is that there is a 100m and 500m option. That's a pretty huge step. Could we have a 300m additional?

hmm, so another attempt with a "split track". In case, the track "Creation time" will match first trackpoint (this means recorded track), "Creation time" for each new track will match the time of its first trackpoint.

Ah, same as @Tapio suggested later ...

"Add X point" good idea, I'll look at it thanks

@CabrioTourer
As a developer, I would prefer 250m, done.

@Menion it only happened once (rental car) a month ago, but that may just be the phone was only connected once in that car. Sorry, too long ago.

Menion... could you please please pretty please consider accepting XML files for "open with..." and "share" with Locus?

I am meanwhile completely fed up with explaining people where to put their custom maps and overlays... it's simply beyond the ability of a normal user, especially now that Locus has to hide its home directory in funky places, not easily accessible by your default file explorer.

The Strava Heatmap nowadays is THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT TOOL for mountain bike navigation and beats any OSM tagging hands down all over the world. But getting it into Locus requires some kind of advanced super knowledge at the moment. How great would it be if you could simply click on the XML attachment here, choose open with / share with Locus, and simply be offered to import the contents (if any).

Locus should not only accept custom map definition XML files, but also any other type of file that it deals with: database backups... cursor definitions... dashboards... god knows what... zipped or unzipped. Just parse whatever you're given and present the user with reasonable choices on what do to with it.

Thanks.

hello menion
I have made several attempts to get closer to the problem.
Lastly, I started LMP with the vector map centered and rotating with no POI's or tracks loaded and no navigation or guidance.
At the same time I started LM4 with the same settings as described above but with a blank map.
When driving the used memory remained constant for the first 30 minutes below ~180MB.
After that, the value began to rise steadily with LM4
LMP remained the whole time under 200MBif the app runs in the background nothing changes in the memory volume

Edit:
today i noticed that the memory problem only occurs when
- the screen is turned on
- the map rotation is turned on

the problem occurs for me with both LMP and LM4

Hi guys,
interesting new Beta version 4.12.1.2 just published.

What to expect?
- downloading of geocaches directly over the app > future of G4L is unsure so I've decided to implement all necessary features directly into app
- a test version of the new system for full-screen mode ("Expert settings" where probably remains)
- a test version of the activity recognition system for track recording > new option "Auto pause" in the setting of recording profile. I've not tested it in the field yet so use on your own risk. The top bar on the main screen may display a "Custom" panel with current info about the detected activity.
- and many fixes ... uff. Enjoy weekend!

thanks now it works ;)

how should the user know this? There is no hint in the manual and the recorded nmea files are automatically stored under
Locus/data/nmea

@menion - although certainly not thorough or extensive testing yet, but the changes you have made for xDOP filtering for vertical accuracy in track recording has resulted in improvements for me. It is hard to be sure of course, but I mostly take my phone inside with track recording still enabled as a small test, and mostly I don't see huge errors in vertical position anymore. So thanks!

@balloni55
thanks for the bug report regards the filter crash. I've just re-generated apk files, so give a geocaching try again please, thanks.

NMEA > well, it is more a feature for us for some tests than for "common" users ;)

And bottom bar > thanks for the log. Inside is visible that the app is displaying 5 buttons. Weird. Hmm what to do with it? A little mystery :/

QuoteI've just re-generated apk files, so give a geocaching try again please, thanks
thanks now it work :)

why does the mystery say "Mystery or Puzzle Cache" ?

e.g. if no checkbox is selected for size, "all selected" is still displayed and all sizes are searched for.

can you please add 3 more checkboxes for search criteria
- display found caches
- own caches
- temporary deactivated caches

And does it make sense to select for caches with "no sizes"? "Nothing selected" is always considered equal to "all selected".
