hidden button > yes, sorry, it will remain hidden. It is too low priority feature.

@slarti76
oki, let's try OpenLocationCodes in search in the next version. Just a warning ... Google as I see now use mostly short version of these codes so an internal geocoder needs to be used. For now. it will work only on Google-certified devices (devices with Google Play services).

Direct checking of the content of the clipboard and using it ... it is more on @Marek Scholtz. But agree, may be useful to have the result immediately as the first suggestion ...

@T-mo
Google router > it is still using by anyone :o. Have to delete this, sorry.
GraphHopper endpoint > post me here please exact coordinates of the problematic endpoint and routing type you use, thanks.

@Christian
It depends on the Dashboard setup. Open dashboard in the editor > top toolbar Settings > "Close by back button" option.

Quote from: Menion on August 03, 2023, 08:11:37Hi guys, sharing points from Google Maps does not work for years as I know. Somewhere in 2021 maybe even later, they changed the format and the information app receives can no longer be simply converted to any text or coordinates.

Or you had a different experience with Locus Map 4.16-?
@Menion - strange, different to my experience, it (red push pin) had worked ~4.16, stopped working ~4.17, and is now working again. I only started using GMaps recently as a workaround for the broken LM4 online search experience which I now find frustrating. Sorry to complain, but it's just how it feels.
More or less the same for me. Latest version of Locus did not fix anything here though, I still cannot share points from Google Maps app. All I get is a silly URL in the Locus search window.

It used to work nicely for me for a long time, likely before Locus rewrote the Search function. Or before gmaps app changed the sharing... I have no idea. All I know is that it worked for years and not it doesnt.

I also find the new Locus online search useless. It almost never gets anything I want. When I need a "bike shop", I want a list of shops at the town where my map is pointing at. Locus online search gives me mostly utter nonsense from 500 kilometers away though.

To put it mildly: Usability regarding search has gone completely southwards recently.

Good interaction with Google maps is essential on my trips. I need opening/closing times, I need the websites of stores, I need to streetview the store front to judge wether it makes sense to cycle there and look for something. Locus internal search will never be able to compete... and it should not. Google Maps is the perfect tool for that.

I think it is time for a drastic correction of approach here: whatever you do for iOS should not screw the 100000s of users from whom you make your living.
As long as the new search function is not professional, give the Android users back the Google based search.
Equal functionality is not a valid argument against this request, as the iOS version will lack essentials for years to come anyway.
At least give the existing and fully functional Google based search as an option to your (Android) users, PLEASE!

Locus on Apple/iOS??? When did I miss that? Definitely can't find it...

Problem with SRTM/HGT:
I downloaded some 1" elevation data from here: http://viewfinderpanoramas.org/dem1d.html
To my surprise, suddenly the deepest canyons of our planet are in Northern Italy, and the Swiss lakes have the deepest trenches - have a look at the screenshots...

(I did clear all temp/cache data before turning on map shading again, so shoudln't be a caching artefact - also obvious from the -21753m altitude shown in att1)

@joeloc - you express your frustration more directly than me, although precisely the same feeling. Sharing points (sorry to repeat myself yet again but):
  • sharing long-tap (new) red push pin points works for me
  • sharing single-tap of (existing) POI - yes, same silly URL for me too
I've made a video to be 100% clear - https://youtu.be/_jmaoGtxvqM

@0709 - installed - tested - wow it works - fixed the LM4 "online search silly URL" issue - thanks so much!

Go for Sonny's LIDAR DTMs instead. Much better than SRTM.

Playstore shows new version 4.18.1 and I must take care not to update my AFA version accidentally...

PC browser goes to GD folder from Aug 2nd, version 4.18.0, not 4.18.1, even on PC.
Or do you have a MAGIC link instead :-) ?
