Title: Parking function - two small issues
Post by: svartbjorn on October 30, 2011, 23:14:13
I use the Parking feature a lot. It is a really great feature.
However, there are two issues with the Parking function:

1) Parking data is lost if phone reboots
-------------------------------------------------
When I activate the Parking function, it is seems to be stored in the RAM, because all Parking data are lost if the phone reboots. That is critical if you trust the Parking function to find your way back to the car. So I am asking if the Parking data could rather be stored either in the internal flash memory or on the SD card. If tracking is on, the track is still there after reboot, so I guess the same could be done with the Parking data?

2) Guiding to Parking
---------------------------
If I activate the Parking function, the top status bar of Android shows that Parking is active. If I pull down the status window and tap the Parking (or tap Menu > Functions > Parking), I get a menu with 4 entries: Map, Compass, Edit and Cancel. But no Guiding! That is highly wanted! As it is now, I must either tap Compass and then Home, or tap Map to center the Parking and then tap the Parking POI. Would be great if the 4-entry menu mentioned above could include a 5th command: Guiding.

you're using it a lot? Glad to hear. I was planning to do some .. hmm .. overhaul of this function as I did with weather screen, but wasn't sure if this function is in use. Nice, I'll look at it ...

I'm not using it a lot but when I need it I am really happy that Locus has this feature and I really like it!
When I'm in a place where I don't know my way I won't find my car again without some help :)

Near my goal, I see two distance indicators.
I think the second distance indicator is more confusing than helpful.
Why this is needed?

nice icon :)

try to move far away from your "guide to" location ... or try it on tablet for example ... you can discover that two visible values are very useful. Why is this confusing for you? Just one on start and second at the end ...

...or try it on tablet for example..
I rarely go with a big tab in the woods :-)
An example:
In open country I look briefly at my display and I see two numbers. hmm.. but which of them is my position and what is the goal?
This only makes sense if the cross would be outside the screen.
I need only one distance indicator that tells me I'm here - and just 200 meters from the target.
not like this: (http://http://www.scf.at/brigitte/downloads/handout/locus/doubledist.png)

anyway. its not important to change. i noticed it.
