 Idea for points and tracks. Long click on data (right), selection to hide everything. short click access to tracks and points.

To be able to turn off points AND tracks all at once would be nice to have, I often do it, but always have to go a) to the points main menu, then to the tracks main menu.

Great news: the latest LM4 test apk (#943) fixes the issue of "... no points ..." if you have more than about 60 POI DBs installed in total (installed, not visited, was the issue). Tested on my S10 - hope that persists on others ... Thank you, Menion !!

Tolle Neuigkeit: the neueste LM4-Test-APK (#943) hat das "... keine Punkte ..." gelöst für den fall von mehr als etwa 60 installierten POI DBs (installiert war das Problem, nicht besucht). Auf meinem S10 getestet - ich hoffe das gilt auch für andere ...

Hide all tracks and points.
The button in the @freischneider attachment is obscured by right side panel buttons on my phone.

The next question:
The screen on Locus Map 4 is much darker than on Locus Map 3.

The smartphone setting is set to full brightness.

Additional finding: When the program ends, the screen briefly becomes 100% bright.

Does anyone have similar experiences? This makes the program very difficult to read in sunlight.

GPS kept active by LM4 ?

Background: I have the German Corona App running 7x24, and as advertised, it does not use the GPS service itself. But for Android reasons, to keep BT going, location services need to be active.

What I noticed in my 3c logging was GPS being active. I killed all apps except LM4 and kept things running für another hour. Still GPS was active, although in the Satellites Screen GPS had been switched off for many hours.

Killing LM4 also sent GPS to sleep, finally.

Until now not reproducabkle at will. I noticed such behaviour only once in 5 days, since I more intensely checking for GPS status on Android level. Also this morning, Locus is running, and GPS off in LM4 as well as Android, like it should.

Normaly with this option the map is centered after a delay of 5s (or with expert settings definable) ... but in LM4 it doesn't work.

And after some hiking tours I really would have it working because while walking ... looking on the screen ... moving the map a little bit - for purpose or by mistake (what happens very often  ::) you always have to press the "center-button"
Normaly I switched on LM ... and could see my position at a glance.

With my motobike it was even more difficult because with my touch gloves I could move the map ... but to hit the "center button" was a challenge ...
