Hi Menion,
updated version 2.12 today, after that did a bike tour and unfortunately noticed, that one of my favorite features of Locus Pro seemed to be gone: the possibility that the device display gets dimmed after a while and gets to full lightness again just by touching it. It was in the general options menue. It was a very useful feature because it saved a lot of battery. Why has it disappeared and - please - can you put it back again?

Hello,
with today's update, Locus gets very very slow on my phone. The start of Locus needs much longer and especially the loading of the map needs about 30 seconds each time i move or zoom the map (before it was about 1 or 2 seconds). also the opening of the menus is quite slow.
With this new version, Locus is almost not use able.

Parallel to the updated pro version I have an older free version on the phone, which works still normal.
My phone is an Motorola Motolux (XT615) with Android 2.3.

best regards
alex

my problem sounds similar to:

the maps are some different vector maps.
The version of Locus free is 2.7.3. it uses exactly the same maps.

hi guys

firstly ... missing "DIM" settings. I was checking how much people use this settings and there was only a few. I use "older" method called "Wakelock" to keep screen on (in normal or dimmed state). Anyway this wakelock has also side effect, it try to keep CPU also awake and ready to use. Also in case of some small problems, this wakelock may cause abnormal battery usage. So recommended is not to use it, until it's really necessary.

So because I want to optimize Locus as much as possible, I sacrifice this settings for ability to not to use wakelock. Now, system for keeping screen on is 100% safe and there is no space for some battery problems due to this. So shortly, sorry, but there is no way to return this settings back. Only way should be automatically reduce brightness of screen by Locus itself, but I'm not sure I want to play with this settings ...

second: speed of map on 2.X devices ... I was checking a code and found only one line difference, where I put map rendering to lower priority. I'm worried that it's this problem. Your device think, that thread with low priority is not so important so it do not use much CPU power on it ... probably. I'll put here today a test version for quick test. If this will be this problem, I'll release new version soon with some more fixes
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: joa on May 28, 2013, 08:35:05
Hi menion, about the missing "dim"settings: could you please consider that again? I wonder that so less people are using this. On my device (Sony xperia active, android 4.0) it makes a huge difference in battery consumption, about 12 or 13% per hour with mostly dimmed screen vs. much more than 20% per hour without the dim option. So this is a huge affection of usability. I always have to be sure that the battery is fully charged before the tour (not very spontaneous) and tours above 4 hours or so are no longer possible without recharge or external battery. Problem is that my device holder for the bike handle bar covers the on/off-switch, so if I use the system settings for the display brightness and the display shuts off, I can't shut it on again without taking the device from the holder. You see, this setting is very important for me. So please, consider this problem again. Maybe you can find another solution.
Until then: is there any download possibility for version 2.11?
Thanks and regards joa

I really do not want to implement Wakelocks back. It's really dangerous method to keep screen on. I'll try to think about some alternative to dim screen, but cannot promise ...
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: pmoravec on May 28, 2013, 11:11:07
Maybe there is an application with service on Google Play using wakelocks to keep the screen on, which would offer this function for people like joa? I found something called Wakey, but don't have any practical experience with it.

Edit: It's not suitable for this task, refer to later post
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: menion on May 28, 2013, 11:15:34
Pavel this is excellent solution. I always forget that Locus is not on Google Play alone :)

seems that false https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... blep.wakey (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.doublep.wakey) Wakey looks usable ...
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: pmoravec on May 28, 2013, 11:21:18
Unfortunately this one (Wakey) does not dim the screen in the basic version I have tested. But maybe some other...

Edit: OK, something called "Screen ON" http://https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.brilliant.apps.screenon looks promising for this task, at least it works this way on my phone and is free and not add-supported.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: tigus on May 28, 2013, 13:06:47
Another option regarding brightness, though somewhat laborious, is to install Power Toggles (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... ainless.pc (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.painless.pc)).

From there you can add a widget to the notification bar via a toggle to change the brightness. You have one that switches between maximum, medium and minimum one can choose values ​​for each, even if one chooses a mean value equal to the maximum or minimum is a switch between two values.

The good thing is that you can add different toggles with many functions.  :)

Greetings.

Hi guys,
I'm very glad that you all give your best to help and in fact the solution pmoravec proposed, works on my phone, too. Need to change the "brightness behaviour" of Locus to "system settings", then the Screen on-App to "Let it dim" and it's just like before. Not as comfortable as before (two more clicks  ;) ), but works quite well. Maybe Menion can keep this in mind and find some day some other battery saving tool within locus.
I wonder why only few people use this option. Do you all have such big batteries or do only short bike tours?  ;)
Thank you again joa
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: menion on May 28, 2013, 15:05:21
Fine :)
 
I for example rather turn off screen, then keep it dim. Voice guiding works for me quite well and if there is any problem, I rather stop and check map not during a ride ... but everybody has different methods ;)

Funny, I thought this was implemented intentionally as it matches quite good the menu coming in from left side. Now I can swipe it in and out. Yes, I'd like to keep it.

Dont know how much drain the wakelock for the sensor do.

"compute intersection" is new in GC Line Tools.

I don't use GC - so i have disabled this module a long time ago.
but now (have to translate some strings) i see this nice tools  - but why only for GC :shock:

This should not be hide into GC stuff.
This is usefull for all users eg. ballooning  ;)

So my vote "Line tools" for all ! :D

Are there any changes in uploading field notes to gc.com in 2.12.x?

When I try to upload field notes, there is a message "uploading field notes" which disappears without further notice. No progress bar, as in last versions. The field notes in Locus are not deleted. Only the first field note is uploaded to gc.com., all other field notes on my device are ignored.

I know that there were some problems on gc.com side in the last days, but the problem persists since yesterday. Other actions which use GC live API (like loading/updating caches via gc4locus) are running fine today. So it seems to me like a problem with 2.12.x...

I have to report a strange behavior with 2.12.0 official pro version and geocaches.

I had a list of geocaches (with finds filtered out and distance-based sort) imported from GPX and updated the listings through external plugin (G4L). They are all part of an archived pattern,which is still physically on original location. What happened was that when updating the listings, logs, etc., the original coordinates and new data (complete listings) got randomly mixed. If I remember correctly, GC API does not return coordinates for archived caches. So when updating something went wrong with the order of original data. Normally this does not seem to happen (possibly because the coordinates get overwritten as well or you match the results based on the coordinates).

small issue in 2.12.0.(official)
1. Choose a vector map and afterwards
2. choose an overlay. For choosing an online map, tap on online map, but you´ll be directed back to vectormaps?
Title: Re: AW: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: druki on May 31, 2013, 03:45:47
I can confirm with Android 2.3.6 that vectormaps are loaded faster in 2.12.03 compared to 2.12.0.

About line tools:
small drawing bug (allready in 2.12.0), at line crossing tool only the upper/left part of lines is drawn on the screen (ends with the calculated crossing point).
One wish: I'm interested in informations on lines that I have drawn (after the creation page): Could it be possible to show lenght & azimuth of the lines on map?
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: Henk van der Spek on May 31, 2013, 14:41:11
Ok, I am happy.
I am not on 2.12.0 yet because I need Locus seriously next week.

What for a longer time surprised me was that a 1.1 gB Alps map was fluent and never crashing. So I refreshed my Netherlands_hike map (441 mB) through openandromaps.org .

Next I compared my present 2.11.1 with test version 2.12.0.3
To my surpise and happiness I could in both versions now zoom out to level 8 without crashing. It is hard to see if there is a speed difference. 2.12.0.3 is giving more 100% processor signals, so I would say it lets the processor work harder which probably is good.
Both versions are much smoother in panning the map (moving it by sliding) but that would be due to the fresh/better map, I think.  

All in all, I can still recommend Locus, even for an older Defy on Froyo. :D

I have one question and maybe a bug:

1. the feature of hill shading for vector maps (in development) actually throws the shadow upper right:
[attachment=0:38bxn0wn]e8yqapam.jpg[/attachment:38bxn0wn]
For maps normally it is lower right.
@Menion: Can this be corrected?

2.
Only for record: yesterday I had several crashes of 2.12.3 (also 2.12.0) during navigation. Locus crashed at recalculation of route. I was not able to make a catlog during driving. Maybe I can get some logs later..

In this moment I wanted to report the same with 2.12.0.3:
Today I tried in realtime a navigation with my car. After 20 mins the navigation screen disappeared suddenly without a freeze or FC and the home screen was visible.

The worst thing was that the battery drained as much as during a track recording. A task killer showed nothing of Locus and no GPS icon was in the status bar :-(
Three hours later (without loading) the battery was almost empty.

@pmoravec: updating and whole handling of locus data over Locus API is based on points IDs and when arcao in G4L update cache, I think he update it thanks to GC Code of every cache. So there should not be a place for such huge issue. Anyway are you able to reproduce it? Even better - are you able to give me step by step instructions, so I can reproduce this?

@jusc: thanks, picking a maps fixed

@druki: yes, lines are drawn just from first point to intersection. Anyway I warn you, this computation isn't much precise. I'm still searching for more precise way to compute it (currently I approximate compute on sphere and not on ellipsoid). About additional information - all these line/circle draw functions has big disadvantage. After you draw something, this item cannot be selected and used. Locus also do not compute some intersection between circles automatically etc etc ... so there is big place for improvements. On second side, I think these functions are really rarely used, so I still have no reason to invest too much time into this ... and it's same with your request on display an azimuth and bearing.

@henk: I think it's just ... "luck" :)

@druki, tramp: I also had one crash when I wanted to stop navigation, but I'm unable to repeat it now, damn. And tramp, your problem with battery consumption is really very weird. Mainly because it's almost impossible to consume battery when Locus is not in list of apps. I would like to publish final version before release for some testing. I'll then need some time, so priority is to release version without problems. So please check it and create for me a logcat if some problem happen, thanks

@druki, gynta: hillshading ... if this will work, it will be amazing :). Anyway same as on some other places ... I still wasn't able to create fast method for this hillshading, mainly on lower zoom levels. It's of course possible to change sun angle (I'll do it, thanks), but this will still not be enough to make hillshading nice looking ...

@menion,
I cannot citate here.
Perhaps I explained bad:
If e.g. Copilot stops unexpectedly then the GPS software module (?) remains active and completely hidden and drains the battery invisible so as Locus today in my case.
So perhaps this is a "normal" behavior of my ROM.
Please search only for the crash :?:

fine, this should be better ...

anyway best should be to render hillshade in around level 15 and use this result in all zoom levels. But hard to do in for example level 10, where is then needed 32x32 tiles, so more then 1000 tiles from 15 to cover one tile at 10 .. heh

nevermind for now. Thanks for tip, hillshade looks better now, and I'll try to think about it later a little bit

@tramp: this really happen?? I sometimes saw (already happen to me) that Locus or any app crashed and GPS remain active, but GPS was visible in system bar. This, what happen to you is really bad. No matter what happen to app itself, this should never happen on any device. So if you use any alternative ROM, I also think it should be a problem in this ROM. So best solution is to fix all bugs in Locus :)

@druki, gynta: hillshading ... if this will work, it will be amazing :). Anyway same as on some other places ... I still wasn't able to create fast method for this hillshading, mainly on lower zoom levels. It's of course possible to change sun angle (I'll do it, thanks), but this will still not be enough to make hillshading nice looking ...
From here (a month ago): viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3030&p=20484&hilit=hillshading#p20485 (http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3030&p=20484&hilit=hillshading#p20485)

please take this really as an ... how to say, feature for fun now. Anyway it's fast and it's doing something, which is good start :)

direction is currently defined from south, east. It's best what I was able to create after some testing. Problem is again missing OpenGL rendering. From some angles, android has problems to draw semi-transparent triangles and draw instead of that only completely white triangles. So don't expect too much from it now. I was excited when it started to work, but this is huge limitation and I'm not sure, I will be able to create now nice looking hillshading ... we'll see
Did you change your mind? :?

a problem, I think which existed always:
Navigate to: to start the process e.g. press the "Car" but there is currently no internet connection => Locus reports this problem and closes the Navigate to.
This is bad as you have to start the whole process again after enabling internet connection.
Add new route and measure is more user friendly, it doesn't loose anything, you just need to remove your latest added point and continue after enabling Internet.

you're of course right ... currently mechanism is
1. you define start/end points
2. tap on route type to compute
3. Locus close "Navigate to" screen
4. start compute

first two remain same, but I now switched points 3. and 4. where "Navigate to" screen is closed only in case, compute is success ...

Big THANKS to pmoravec for the link, that leads to the "screen ON" app in Google Play!

This funktion was integrated in the System of my former Windows Mobile Smartphone, and it was also manually configurable (turn off brightness after "x" seconds, this could be set manually). This saved a lot of accu power with my former GPS navigation software on my mobile, so I could ride mountainbike tours from 5 to 7 hours with one accu pack.

With changing to Android, there was again the problem to save accu power. Searching many forums I realised, that maybe Android users don't know this funktion. So I was searching for this funktion, based on a app, for a long time.
Then I found Locus, with this "auto DIM" solution built into the app - that was perfekt!
Don't know, how other mountainbiking Locus users solve this, but for me it's not easy to wake up the screen by pressing a button, when riding a mountainbike - just touching any part of the screen is much easier! In the evenening or when riding throught the woods, the dimmed screen is often bright enought to see the map or the track I'm following, so the screen is always on, but saves power.
The loss of the "auto DIM" funktion is a big reduction of the funktionality of Locus for me when I'm riding my bike.

So, again thank's for the Link!
And Greetings from Ingolstadt

Hi Menion,
I have strange artifacts with Vector Maps.
I'm not 100% sure about the necessary preconditions but this is how I can often (~4 out 5 times) reproduce it:
OpenAndro Vectormap Germany, Internal Hiking theme, Zoomlevel 19/71%.
And then open DataManager/Map Items, select two (really short) tracks created with brouter and return to map screen.
Screenshot with artifacts: https://www.dropbox.com/sc/pthqe92472ppjpd/E3Xx1syWCk (https://www.dropbox.com/sc/pthqe92472ppjpd/E3Xx1syWCk)
Increase zoom level twice (first zoom goes to 19/100%, 2nd zoom goes to 20/100%) fixes the artifact
Screenshot w/o artifacts: https://www.dropbox.com/sc/l2qp9vgm1uyhcev/yVx-35YNSo (https://www.dropbox.com/sc/l2qp9vgm1uyhcev/yVx-35YNSo)

Problem reproducable on both SGS3 and Nexus 7, internal hiking and city themes!
On SGS3 reproduced with 2.12.04 (Free) and 2.12.2 (Pro), on Nexus 7 with 2.12.2 (Pro).

But:
If I import the map item tracks and display them from the list of tracks, I can't reproduce the problem.
I'm not able to reproduce such kind of artifacts with zoom operations (+/- buttons or with two fingers) or map panning. Here everything works perfect.

Seems it has something to do with MapItems.

sorry for a late response and thanks for bug-report. I was playing with it and was able to reproduce it twice after some experiments, but since then I'm unable to reproduce it. Weird ... there is probably some problem with refreshing old map. Because zooming has changed and locus now reuse old tiles and paint over them new data (to save some time by creating empty bitmaps), this have to be some incorrect order of operations, but ... :/

I'll try to experiments with it. Fortunately it's not so big problem for now, so I'm sure soon or later I find why this happen :)

@menion,
you are developing with Note 2?
Can you please test altitude measures while tracking. With all sensors on and switched on GPS altitude with GSM I don´t get any altitude, but for the first 3 points.  Maybe it´s because I use a Cyanogen Rom. tramp20 confirmed that he hasn´t this problem without any pressure sensor.
So I´m not sure if it is the ROM or the combination of pressure sensor and GPS/GSM altitude.

Thank you in advance
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: menion on June 10, 2013, 20:03:45
yes I use Note2. best device for developers :) (on second side worst, because everything is so fast on it :) ) ...

I'm recording everytime I go out, but not with pressure sensors (because of problem I wrote about). Next time I'll keep screen on and try what you write. Anyway what you mean by "I don´t get any altitude, but for the first 3 points"? This mean that only first three points has altitude and rest no? And "no" means really no altitude or same as previous three points? Also what settings you have in Altitude manager?

And it should not be a problem of CyanogenMode. I think this ROM is so well tested, that if there is any problem, it will be in Locus
Title: Re: AW: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: jusc on June 10, 2013, 21:08:42
Yes only the first points have the altitude. All other points don't have any. Not zero but "not available". You can see it in my last post of

@jusc: for my surprise, this happen to me also after around 700 recorded points. All altitude values then was not 0, but NaN, which mean some problem in computation. I did some debug messages into output and will try it today during some test bike ride ...

I don't think the dashboard file is problematic as even the standard ones (joeloc's dream etc.) don't work.

- merged "Item visibility" feature with data screen!
Ok, this goes into the direction I already hoped for a long time ago (wanted to have same options regarding item visibility for tracks as they are for points).
I guess you mean that the item visibility screen shall replace the data screen?
If yes:
- Tab for Map items is missing
- The crossed eye in the top right of the screen claims it wants to *delete* my map item on the screen. But if I confirm, the map item is still available from datamanager/Map items.

General for map item tab:
Can it behave as e.g. track with a tick per map item ins and a tick per folder instead of bold red name per item?
=> Use the same GUI elements for points, tracks, (other) map items!

Confusing, confusing, the changes in item visibility screen are much more noticable than the ones in Data screen.

Ok, let's check the Data screen:
- I don't like the toggle button for Ticks and Tools and would prefer two buttons instead. Of course this results also in two columns for all the Point and Track folder lists. But I fear the guys out there with their thumb nail screens ;) will likely vote against that.

But much more uncomfortable I'm with the following:
- The behaviour for the tick button on folder level as it is implemented now for Points and Tracks:
Let's assume I have currently selected 25/50 points in folder P which results in a set tick on folder level for P. If I remove the tick on P I get 0/50 points which is as I expect and like it because I want to do this to remove the points temporarily from screen (item invisibility!).
Now I want to see my points again. What should I do? There are two options: a) set the tick for P or b) go into P and select the 25 points. a) is not what I want and b) is a nightmare.
What I'd like to see instead, is the option to re-enable my 25 points with a single tap. Ok, there should also be an option to select all 50 points in P, this could be done with a long tap on the tick.

Alternatively, if you want to stay with the toggle for tick/tools I would be happy with a tick on P which sets my 25 points again and an item in the tools list to enable all points of P.

And again for the Map Item tab:
Can it behave as Points and Tracks with a tick per map item ins and a tick per folder instead of bold red name per item?
=> Use the same GUI elements for points, tracks, (other) map items!

So far my suggestions for the Data screens.

It works in testversions 2.12.0.2 and in 2.12.2.4.
You are right, periodic updates was ticked in Proversion and not ticked in Free/Test version. Actually I don't know what this really is.
Anyway, removing the tick didn't help (closed Locus Proafter removing the tick and started again few seconds later).

wait you talk about some other possibilities for a selecting a points & tracks to some alternative previous state, but:
- if you open points tab with tools buttons on right side, it's same as before!!
- if you open points tab with checkboxes on right side, it's same as "Item visibility". So why you now try to create some new logic for a selecting previously selected points?

tab "items" is another story, it should be on program when points & tracks are done

OSM note ... I know ... I already wrote them about https://github.com/openstreetmap/openst ... issues/304 (https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/issues/304) ... response was that it's fixed, but I still see same issue. Have to check it

I was never happy with the selection logic :). Therefore I propose something, which is, at least for me, more logical and better usable.
How would you like to select 25 out of 50 points to be displayed as they were one minute ago before you hid them?

Hi meinion,
some minutes ago I sent you a internal report of 2.12.2.5.
I got "Locus does not react (or so), wait or send a report".
I have no catlog because I noticed this 3 hours later and of course the debug log is empty.
This was the first Freeze/FC since many test versions.

Perhaps it would be better when you write continuously the debug log (if Locus has time) then waiting until locus is shut down.

Can I use the market version tomorrow instead of the test version or do I get difficulties?

I have tried out the test version 2.12.2.5. and just like to say the changes  to the data screen have made the wonderful prog that you have better. I live in an area where the Geo-cache population is high, so to keep the folders  to a reasonable size I have split it up into 12 (ranging from 700 -1500 caches each). In the past I had to go into each folder and deselect the caches when moving between areas, but now with the check boxes it is all done from one screen. And if I wish to select just a few then a tap on the left gives me that option.
Great innovation, keep up the great work.

@tommi: I had to read your suggestions about selecting items more then few times. And I still don't like it :). You simply want that Locus remember your previous state of selected items, so you may enable them again, right? But if I imagine it, I'm sure I'll never remember which points I had previously enabled, so why should I want re-enable them back? :).

@CaptKaos2 you're welcome - and it will be even better in next version ;)

@jusc: problem with pressure sensor found, at least on my device. It's again same - my device turn of pressure sensor when I turn off screen and my calibration system wasn't able to handle it. It should be fixed now and you'll get warning if this happen. I cannot check if sensor is on or off, but if there will be more then 15 seconds without values, you should get warning dialog

@tramp: welcome to the world of testing versions ;). Unfortunately I see no useful log in weird system that Google provide for a developers. So please check next test version (I'll upload today 2.12.2.6) where few things should be fixed and if there will be a problem, have prepared catlog. You should btw. start catlog also before locus and start recording so you'll have all logs recorded for sure ...

I will try .6 tomorrow morning with catalog but I fear that 6 hours catlogging will make a really big logfile :-(
So I will stop and start catalog every hour if I do not forget it.

this should not be a problem. CatLog for sure periodically write data into file, so they'll not stay in memory for whole time

I was yesterday recording for about two hours with enabled debugging for pressure sensor. Result was that every second, five lines was recorded together with some other messages and even around 200k (15MB) lines was no problem ;)

@tommi: I had to read your suggestions about selecting items more then few times. And I still don't like it :). You simply want that Locus remember your previous state of selected items, so you may enable them again, right?
Yes.
Quote from: "menion"
But if I imagine it, I'm sure I'll never remember which points I had previously enabled, so why should I want re-enable them back? :).
Of course I don't remember the 25 points and
1) this is the reason why I like computers, they can remember things which I as a human can't
2) Select the 25 points (or much, much worse: select 25 tracks) (or at least the ones I can remember) is a pain.

Actually what I propose is what I always expected to get from the now deprecated feature "temporarily disable visibility of items". The important thing here is "temporarily". What is implemented now is persistantly disabled visibility.
Too bad that I can't convince you.

Post by: menion on June 17, 2013, 19:43:39
never say never ...

From my point of view if confusing this: imagine I have selected 25 points from 50, I hide them, then close Locus or do something different and after an half of hour I'll try to enable all points, because I completely forget that I had selected just few of them. And what a surprise ...

I also do not see, why Locus should remember this ... if I want to see whole map, I may disable all points by two taps

What I have currently in mind is to allow load all points as now, but with respect of defined filter for folder. This should partially solve your problem isn't it?

I think, this is not about "convince me". I look on it from view "why I should expect from it", and I do not expect that app will remember such state

And new test version is there (http://http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3112#p20936) ... you'll probably kill me, but data screen has changed again :D

Now the numbers are right aligned, well done. But the font is smaller, make it bigger please.
Fine, long tap on map manager symbol and I can hide them all.
Fine, tap on symbol on the left to toggle between enable/disable all. I don't understand why the '0' is printed in red.

Why not print it like this:
(25/50) when points/tracks are on screen
(25/50) when points/tracks are hidden
(0/50) or (0/50) when points are not selected (or green, too)

Quote from: "menion"

That's not the point, the point is how to get my collection of points/tracks back which I only wanted to disable temorarily to see the whole screen or which I disabled temporarily to make map rendering faster (many tracks make rendering much slower).

You mean filter by name, by icon? You are right, it is a partial solution but unfortunately the selection of points I use typically doesn't follow a certain rule which can be defined by a filter.

I would be happy with a long tap on the icon (the short tap is the toggle for all/none, the long tap is the toggle for selection/none.

Hello,
I try to close 2.12.2.6 (Android 2.3.6) with the back button, but Locus doesn't close (is there an other way to close?). No matter if "closing prompt" is on or off (never get this request in this version) and no matter if "run as a service" is active or not. Seems that I have to kill Locus - I never thought that I would ever consider this ;-) But if I don't close it, it will drain my battery tomorrow during daytime...

If I remember correctly, it was possible to close the main menu with the back button in earlier versions. Not possible in 2.12.2.6?

@druki: hmm interesting, I did small fix in close event for some rom based on 4.X android and this caused these troubles on 2.x devices ... perfect :). Thanks druki, I'll fix it to next version. Enjoy Locus killing ;). Btw. I think there should be no power consumption when locus sit on background if you have disabled all common features, like recording, live tracking etc ...

@vcapt: fine :)

@tommi: seems to be on long discussion. I understand what you want, but I do not agree with it. I think that current ability to quickly load/unload all items (which is btw. much much faster then before) together with ability to temporary hide all items on map, cover all needs, that common user may have. And because we're only one who discuss about it here, I suggest to form your idea into some good readable text and post it on GetSatisfaction, so I may get more opinions focused just on this one topic

so I spend more time on some testing and finding places that should work faster ... hope it will be visible, mainly in loading/unloading points. There is also finally a method to change icon for more then one point at once, so you then may simply use filter (btw. it also include a lot of improvements mainly for a geocaching) to display only a part of points etc etc ...

feedback is welcome of course. I'm going to take finally a two day bike trip, so I'll test it as much as possible. During sunday/monday will be enough time for every problem you find or improvements that will be need ...

2.12.2.8:
Updating Geocaches:
The new filtering features for geocaches are great for viewing/selecting. But when I want to update (Addon GC4Locus) a single geocache (or a group of marked geocaches), I don't care about the filtersettings and it is anoying to be forced to chose a filter which is impossible:
1. the radius is not within my actual map position (btw. another anoying behaviour with the map centering/sorting to GPS which was much better before)
2. my selected caches could fit both of each filter criteria (i.e.temporarily disabled caches and enabled ones) and I'm not allowed to leave all filter in the "don't care" position.
So my suggestion:
Could it be possible to ignore (all) filtersettings when updating selected(!) geocache(s)?

Back-button:
Still problems (Android 2.3.6) with back-button at:
- closing Locus (workarround: killing, because either I
a) use Locus with GPS permanently on, even in background to have it ready if I look at it without waiting for a sat fix ... or I
 b) don't need it for sure and close it)
- closing main menu (workarround: slide to the right)
- closing the dashboard view (workarround: click the dashboard button. Yes, I fortunately have it in the top bar ;-) )

Hello.
I'm going to report some bugs which I found during the translation work.

* [Settings] -> [Map - objects & style] -> [Altitude position]
  - The text defined in "pref_map_tracks_show_label_desc" is incorrectly shown.
    The text in "pref_map_item_show_label_altitude_desc" should be there.

* [Settings] -> [Guiding] -> [Tracks, Notification settings]
  - A text with xml tags '<font color="red">(Pro)</font>' is shown
    after Text-to-speech. It can be seen only in Locus Free Version.

* Typo in the context name.
  - The context name assigned for the text 'Import' seems wrong.
    It shouldn't be 'impor' without 't' at the end but should be 'import'.
  - This can be confirmed only at the crowdin.net web site but not in the locus app.

* [More] -> [On-board map calibrator] -> [Compute]
  - The progress indicator shown as percentage does not work properly.
    It shows constant value of '2147483647 %'.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: ta-ka on June 22, 2013, 13:03:07
I also would like to ask some requests related to the text and its context name in "strings.xml/strings_pref.xml".
I found that some of single English word are used at the different place in Locus with a defferent meaning.

For example, the word "Basic" defined in "basic" appears in:
  - [More] -> [Parking] -> 'BASIC' as a tab name.
  - [Data] -> [Tracks] -> any track -> STYLE -> 'BASIC' as a choice of solid line.

Their meanings are different at all and it causes problems on translation.
Sometimes it is very difficult or even impossible to find appropriate word to satisfy both meanings.
If you prepare these words separated, for example,

   - word "Basic Infomation" as a tab name using "parking_basic_info"
   - word "Solid line" as a type of line using "line_basic"

then the problem will be solved.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.12.X+
Post by: ta-ka on June 22, 2013, 13:05:20
Continuation:
The followings are the words which I would like to request to prepare the words to be separated.

* The word "Orientation" defined in "pref_orientation" appears:
    - [Settings] -> [Global] -> [Orientation lock]
        -> 'ORIENTATION' for Portrait mode / Landscape mode.
    - [Settings] -> [Sensors] -> 'ORIENTATION' as of bearing.

* The word "Recording" defined in "recording" appears:
    - [Settings] -> [Track recording] -> 'RECORDING' as a title name.
    - Pop-up message 'Recording' when you start/resume track recording.

* The word "Visibility" defined in "visibility" appears:
    - [More] -> [Weather] -> 'Visibility' as the transparency of the air.
    - [More] -> [Notes (OpenStreetMap)] -> 'Visibility' as show/hide notes.
    - [Settings] -> [Track recording] -> [Automatic export] -> [OpenStreetMap]
      -> 'VISIBILITY' as the type of GPS traces.

* The text "Area" defined in "area":
    - [Maps] -> [ONLINE] -> [Download] -> 'AREA' as a region for map download.
    - [Data] -> [Tracks] -> any track -> INFORMATION tab -> 'Area'
      as a mathematically calculated value of the area closed by track.

I'm sorry but I don't understand. "Filter" do only thing. Limit list of item to only these that match filter. So where is problem with selecting just few of them and update by G4L? If you want to cancel filter, just tap on filter and bottom left button cancel whole filter at once so you may select whatever you want.

For the "text with xml tags" issue, my explanation was too short. Here is a long version.

1. install LocusPro 2.12.2 from Google Play
2. disable WiFi and 3G connection then launch LocusPro
3. When "Application not licenced" window appears, tap "Free" button

Yesterday I went out geocaching for 7hrs using test version 2.12.2.8. Apart from little system setting changes I had forgot to make I had no problems with the Prog.
But this afternoon I decided to use it at home to plan next weekends trip and done what I would normally do in the Pro version to get the caches in the area I'm going.
1. With the GPS off and WiFi on long press on the screen to load Map Centre.
2. Select the address and then the Function button (Bottom Right).
3. Select Nearest caches and then the Geocaching4Locus  screen appears, where I can download the caches and import them.

The difference with the test  and  pro is as the G4L screen appears another screen appears briefly  saying " Acquiring address from wireless network" and the coordinates default to as near as wireless can get to my home location, (which is 50 miles from where I want)
I have tried it with Pro and it defaults to the selected address coords.

Is this to do with the warning in your first post.
Warning: this version move settings for "Live tracking", "Quick add point", "WMS maps" to different directory!! Do not use this version if you also want to use current public version of Locus with these features!

If so just ignore this post, and I apologize in advance.

@tommi: weird, mainly because log was empty ... but probably nothing to do now :)

@druki: thanks for logs. I already saw this error somewhere, but it's on place where seems to be impossible to get it. I add some small protection, so hope it won't happen again, but be prepared with Catlog :)

@gynta, jusc: in log from gynta is nothing (thanks btw.). I received small report on bugsense, but it's also not clear why this happen. So same as in "druki's" case. Added small protection but be prepared

@CaptKaos2: hmm I'm unable to reproduce such problem but it has nothing to do with red text. But in Locus is no such text "Acquiring address from wireless network" so it should comes from add-on. I'll try it later

so probably final test version is available - 2.12.2.9 . Most bugs should be fixed as well as texts for translation. Btw. I do not have any feedback on few important things ... merging of "Data & Item visibility" and "Improved filter". What you think? Everything clear?

Thanks for the reply, I have installed 2.12.2.8 and the latest locus pro onto my Nexus 7  to see if it makes a difference. I have also installed Geocaching4Locus .
With  Location access switched off, which is my normal mode, as I use a Bluetooth GPS.

In the pro version everything works as I would normally expect it.

In the Test version when I press "Nearest cache"  I get a black box at the bottom of the screen with "Wrong INTENT - no point!" this disappears and the Geocaching4Locus box appears with a further box over it with
       "No location service allowed"
       Please allow Wireless or GPS location service in "Settings"
With a Settings and OK buttons underneath.
No matter what I press the Coords are still incorrect.

EDIT:-
I have just installed 2.12.2.9 on my HTC phone and indeed the "Wrong INTENT - no point!" appears on it, it disappears so quickly I did not notice it before. If I press the back button and manually input the coords it works as expected.

About colors ... when I was playing with it, I noticed that I miss numbers close to names as was before. Before was easy to see which category has any data already loaded and which has no data loaded. So I tried to highlight empty folders by coloring "0" with red and it helped (at least me) a lot, because I can very easy see if folder has loaded any points or not. That's reason for it ...

You think it's confusing? Hmm for me personally isn't usually important how much points is loaded, but if there are any loaded. Because I usually want to have map fast, so if I don't need any points, I want to hide them fast and this coloring helps me ..

and guys jusc & gynta. Thanks for help. In the end problem is solved. I updated Android API to new version and this version downgraded! Proguard (program I use for some code tweaking) to some older version. And this caused this problems. Once I updated it to new version as was before, all works correctly. So sorry for a troubles, this time I'm almost innocent :)

I hope you understand this.
Long press on the map screen brings up Screen 1. I tap on the address box and screen 2 appears.
Tap on A (Gears Icon) and from the sub menu I select B Nearest caches.

Either of us is dreaming. Definitely numbers are much smaller than name of folder. Sorry, can't provide screenshot as battery almost empty.

Menion

I have just given it a try with Bluetooth and Internal GPS, ensuring I had a good fix before trying. In both cases the Wrong INTENT box appears. With internal GPS a box appears saying "Aquiring location from GPS" and defaults to my present location. With Bluetooth I get Screen 3 as per my last post.

@tommi: ah you're right, still little smaller :D

@capt: sorry, I've got it. Problem is that API that use geocaching4Locus, has small problems when in device is more Locus versions. In this case, it took Locus Pro first and Locus Free second. When you do some search over long-clicked point (temporary point), then Geocaching4Locus start searching for this point (to obtain coordinates) in Locus Pro and not in testing Locus Free. So I'm very sorry, I do not realized this. It will anyway work correctly in next published Locus Pro version. Most probably in Thursday

Thanks for that, it stops me doing my next step. Uninstalling Locus Pro.  :lol:
Look forward to the next version.

alternative should be also, put these numbers to second line, just below names. But I was trying it and it doesn't look too good ...

EDIT: hmm 21k points in one folder ... did you tried to load them all? Hope you like new, around three times faster, loading ;). Btw. moving a map with all these points should be also little bit faster now

38 seconds to select all
9 seconds to deselect all

Nice usecase for what I proposed but no one else wanted to talk about it - except Menion who doesn't like it.

2.12.2.8: Share map center or screen: The list with the different sharing options is heavily flickering on the screen (seems the list is displayed again and again). In latest Pro this is working correctly.
Is this happen to you everytime? Interesting because nothing changed in this dialog
100% reproducible on 2.12.2.8 also after reboot on my S3, not reproducible on latest Locus Pro, not reproducible at all on Nexus 7.
I created a log but it shows nothing interesting at all (only very few records from Locus and without anything bad).
edit
Idea came from gynta via PM: Rename Locus folder and try if it happens in a clean (and empty) Locus environment. It worked there.
And now, after having gone back to my Locus folder, it still worked! How crazy is this? Anyway, treat it as solved!
Not yet ;) same here now. on both devices.. -> https://www.dropbox.com/s/o17kndohh8ate ... 2013_0.mp4 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/o17kndohh8ate9h/clip__Jun_25_2013_0.mp4)

hmm I'm searching why this may happen and only source seems to be this one - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4995 ... il-chooser (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4995006/blinking-e-mail-chooser) where developer has same problem. And yes I know this problem also when I work on language chooser. Do you use different language in Locus then in your system? May you try to change it to "default" in locus if this helps?

Interesting is, that this problem have to be in Locus since begin :)

EDIT: if someone want to test fix for magnifier or some other reported issues, there is last test version.

In my case, as I wrote, the problem vanished by renaming Locus folder so that it wasn't found and after renaming it again to Locus the problem was still away. And yes, I use the Free Version in English whereas the Pro in German.
I think it's not something causing this problem in 100% of all cases.

thanks all for big support on creating a new version. Still some problems remain, like this flickering screens, but I'm sure we'll solve it soon ;)

enjoy version 2.13.0
