- fixed some problems with KML features (screen overlay, rotation of icons)
- fixed co-apps links
- improvements in ANT+ support
- improvements in address search (handling result)
- fixed loading of IMG map files and generating of it's center
- improved rendering speed of MapsForge lib (again I know ;) )
- and many other small fixes

download (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8015949/Locus%20%28dev%29/test_versions/2.14.1.11.apk)

- fixed turned off GPS when screen rotate in sat screen

26.8.2013 - Locus 2.14.1.7

news list
- ability to zoom base map/overlay/wms independent on base map (this mean when base map ends at 17 and you have vector map overlay, you will at level 18 rescale base map, but vector will still use own level 18)
- improved computing of time values during a navigation

- and some more reported problems

20.8.2013 - Locus 2.14.1.5

WARNING: worst then BETA version <!-- s:) --> :) <!-- s:) -->

Everything around loading maps (online, personal mainly and also vector) has changed. You'll probably not see anything, but trust me, most of code has changed and there will be problems on places where all worked fine before. Anyway thanks to this, is possible to shade also ALL!!! personal maps

news list
- added ability to shade ALL maps
- final integration of new ANT+ library (needs ANT Radio Service 4.1)
- added support for ANT+ temperature
- added support for Garmin IMG files (this is just a small bonus, don't expect big support here. I'm also not sure if this will be official feature)
- added new one-finger zoom
- improved export of GPX files (choose between version instead of "Garmin compatible")
- stronger altitude filtration for tracks
- fixed problems with settings own location sources
- added ability to hide tabs in satellite/compass screen
- many small speed optimizations


8.8.2013 - Locus 2.14.1

mainly version with fixed problems ...

6.8.2013 - Locus 2.14.0.1

quick test version before bug-fix release this week. It's mainly for people that are interested in some specific fix of any bug

news list
- added turn on screen to Screen On/Off feature for guiding along track
- improvements and fixes in Satellite/Compass screen
- fixed problem with keyboard on OAuthLoginActivity
- fixed problem with pressure sensor automatic calibration
- fixed problems with auto-zoom
- attempt to integrate working solution for ANT+ based on old library and code (previous version), because it looks that new version of ANT+ lib will never be ready (planned release date was 06/2013)
- fixed problems with BT GPS handling over track record widget
- fixed crash when locus do not have enough space on SD-card

3.8.2013 - Locus 2.14.0

new version is slowly uploading to Google Play and other servers. Enjoy

Hi Menion,
thanks for the new version :-)

The "added contrast (low high)" looks good, but I miss a medium contrast (if possible). The high contrast is to loud for me.

Post by: jusc on August 03, 2013, 15:17:50
@tramp20,

why do you not let it disabled? For my Galaxy S2 the high contrast makes no sense and it seems to be the medium contrast you look for. But maybe for other phones... it´s not.  For that I let it disabled at the S2, but for the Defy it´s a very nice feature.

Hello menion,
firstly thanks for new public version. it's again one small step for a man and a giant leap for Locus users  :lol:
Good thing is that Locus slowly yields the big potential of offline elevation data (hopefully interactive 3D view will follow soon)
having two questions about the shading: firstly I would appreciate option to set shading layer strength (opacity), these seem fade in higher zoom levels
secondly could generating an relief as standalone overlay work also for raster maps?
I already requested this feature on Getsatisfaction http://https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/separate_relief_layer
A well rendered relief could make much size saving for these maps which are already downloaded with hardcoded relief. The question is impact on battery exhaustion.
And secondly offline vector POIs: could various kinds of POIS be on/off selectable to view? (for example if I do a trip by bike or hike I don't need to see nearby gas stations etc.)
One more suggestion to POIs loaded from /mapitems: would it be possible to assign an individual icon to POIs grouped in GPX file? The size for lower zoome already improved but I'd like to have it yet a bit bigger (4" display).

Guiding issues:
- I used a track in reverse direction. The info graph is displayed from original start to end from left to right, so far ok. But the marker for the current position is running also from left to right => wrong, either graph or marker need to run from right to left.
Not fixed in 2.14.0.

hmm so seems that new version do not have any really serious problems. I'm quite glad for that. Few crashes are already reported, but together with some more problems, I'll fix it to some other version within a week ...

So main discussion about low/high contrast. Nice. I'm glad you find it useful. I miss high contrast at these sunny days, so it was small "for myself" made function :). Anyway I also do not understand why tramp needs "middle contrast". Just disable it and you have middle :)

@bucky: I have 3D still in mind, but I'm still sure that it take me quite a lot of time and I still see so much other interesting (and much more useful) topic to do ...

Shading is not currently possible to use for "Personal" maps. There is a problem that personal maps are loaded faster and in really different way then vector maps or online maps and I don't have there space and time, where I should apply rendering of shading. For this, I need to do some "lazy loading" of also raster maps to have there some free CPU time to render shading. This will anyway corrupt some auto-loading etc etc. Some developers problems I have to take care, so it will take some time.

And about new offline pois ... when you enable vector map, you should see points on map a little shaded and active, do you? These points are rendered from this offline database. Which points are displayed depend just on vector theme. So if you select theme where aren't gas stations, you'll not see gas stations ...

It's not clear to me where I can download  the needed files for Shading in Belgium..
It's a whole new topic for me and searching doesn't give any clear results.
Any tips or links?

Like the new version, great work :-)

So, if the map and the poi file have the same name, so the the pois are displayed automatically, I am meant to get gas stations twice - once from the map & theme and once from the database?
Also [bug], the database poi symbols are not scaled when the vector map is scaled.

@john: yes agree, they're displayed twice. I'll probably change it in the future. Anyway all problems and discussion about this system, should be in relevant topic here viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3267 (http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3267) . This topic is focused on current 2.14.0 version and future test version and this feature is really just an beta version that has to go a long way till it will be finally published. It's anyway already usable so I wanted to share with you this work ...

Hi,
I am afraid I have to report a little bug in version 2.14.0. When i open the new satellite / compass screen everything seems fine, until i change the tab (e.g. from compass to sat view). The sat screen is then displayed very small and not in the center. If necessary I can supply a screenshot, but maybe the bug is already known. The funny thing is that both screens work fine when i open them from the main screen, the display prolem only occurs when changing the tab.
So when i open the compass view everything is fine until i change into the sat tab. And when i open the sat tab everything is fine until i change into the compass tab.
Let me know if you want a screenshot or need more info about my device.

I removed the second part of the coordinates, so that is not part of the display bug.

I don't know what happened (perhaps an update on GC.com) or if it belongs here or in the GC addon thread. But I just solved a multicache (GC1C6P1), set the new coordinates as corrected coordinates, downloaded nearest caches in Locus, but the cache was downloaded without the corrected coordinates, it still appears in its original position. Opening the cache and choosing Update cache does not help. Deleting it and downloading only it (using Import GC according to GC code) does not help either.

Sometimes it is really hard to get know how the new features work. Where can I get explicite information on the following? I did't get it work with the wide scattered infos in different topics and answers... :.(

- Map shading integrated as full public feature and added support for shading also for all online maps!
After activating I don't see any differences.
- official announcment of offline POI database!  Some hints here? :   viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3267 (http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3267)
The POI DB file is placed in the vectormap directory and renamed. What now?


Hope someone can give some hints. thanks

for using offline poi database ... If description in topic is not clear for you, then leave this feature be. It's currently in real alpha/beta version so it's not ready for some mass usage

about shading - read first paragraph http://www.locusmap.eu/news-in-version-2-14-0/ (http://www.locusmap.eu/news-in-version-2-14-0/) , it should help

@mek: i'll try to simulate it, anyway do you have any older, some time ago already changed caches? If so, please try it on these older caches. If it will work, then it's problem probably on Geocaching.site, otherwise it's in Locus

@ta-ka: thanks, I'll check it

Hi menion.

News about GPS/Compass-Tabs:

normally I don't use these tabs on tablet. But there is a strange behavior checking both on tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 2,GT 5110, with Android 4.0.3:

The window with the tabs is at the right and the content of the tabs is sliding from left to right and v.v.

I was sitting on this in the evening almost two hours and in the end I fell asleep on chair :). As with some other features - I agree the some better and faster system is needed, but here I don't like simple adding few buttons to this menu. Usually some time helps, so for now just this button, improvements later

Post by: Mek on August 07, 2013, 06:57:16
menion,
about the problem with updating cache coordinates, I tried the "Update cache" functionality in Locus on GC1C6P1 now again an it still does not work.
Then I tried the same with GC2F2D0, which already has updated coordinates in Locus (and its icon is marked with star) - its coordinates were not lost, they stayed corrected as they were. I deleted GC2F2D0 and downloaded it again using the Import GC functionality and it was correct, with corrected coordinates. Deleting GC1C6P1 an reimporting does not bring its corrected coordinates. Strange.
So I dug into the data that is downloaded from GC into Locus using Shark (and Wireshark) and I found the following difference:
For GC1C6P1, there are original AND corrected coordinates in the JSON, and for GC2F2D0 there are only corrected ones. I recall I mistakenly used the "Correct coordinates" feature for GC1C6P1 and entered the original coordinates, which then I reverted back by using Restore, and then entered the correct final coordinates - maybe that's why there are two of them in the output. Compare (output from Wireshark):

GC1C6P1:
Code: [Select]
"UserWaypoints":[{"CacheCode":"GC1C6P1","Description":"Coordinate Override","ID":3231097,"IsCorrectedCoordinate":false,"Latitude":49.16325,"Longitude":18.778467,"UTCDate":"/Date(1375635535977-0700)/","UserID":5884890},{"CacheCode":"GC1C6P1","Description":"Coordinate Override","ID":3237835,"IsCorrectedCoordinate":true,"Latitude":49.1543,"Longitude":18.811467,"UTCDate":"/Date(1375719794327-0700)/","UserID":5884890}]}],"PQCount":0,"CacheCodes":[],"CacheLimits":{"CachesLeft":5994,"CurrentCacheCount":6,"MaxCacheCount":6000}}
GC2F2D0:
Code: [Select]
"UserWaypoints":[{"CacheCode":"GC2F2D0","Description":"Coordinate Override","ID":2609483,"IsCorrectedCoordinate":true,"Latitude":49.173217,"Longitude":18.81005,"UTCDate":"/Date(1367657873907-0700)/","UserID":5884890}]}],"PQCount":0,"CacheCodes":[],"CacheLimits":{"CachesLeft":5993,"CurrentCacheCount":7,"MaxCacheCount":6000}}
It looks to me that Locus took the first "Coordinate override" regardless of its "IsCorrectedCoordinate" attribute being true or false.

Now I found another issue - I generated a pocket query for Zilina and near caches, imported this GPX into Locus and all my solved caches were at corrected coordinates, so far so good (including GC1C6P1). But they were not marked with star - and this is important because then in the field I don't know if the cache really is in that place or those are just the dummy coordinates. I know it worked OK not so long ago (a month?) so something must have gone wrong...

Post by: menion on August 07, 2013, 12:10:43
mek it's quite complicated to test it. Data you checked by Shark are received by Geocaching4Locus, and what in the end comes into Locus itself is absolutely different.

about problems with import from PQ files: I've changed coordinates to one cache, generated PQ and after import, cache is on correct coordinates (changed) and no star (as computed). But if I check generated PQ files, there is no hint that this cache is computed. I also do not remember that something like this existed before. So are you sure, it worked in this way?
Title: Re: AW: [APP] - version 2.14.X+ (updated 3.8.2013)
Post by: KaHeMu on August 07, 2013, 12:52:11
When I solve a mystery cache then first I change coordinates in Locus. Cache is marked as computed. After that I correct coordinates at GC.
In Locus preference for importing PQ is set to leaving own data during import process.

Now the red star for computed/ corrected coordinates in Locus is always on.

KaHeMu

Absolutely. I went caching to Ostrava a month ago and I made a pocket query with solved caches there, they all had the little star in the corner. I also looked at the gpx file I made today and yes, there is no hint about the coordinates being corrected. It came to my mind that perhaps I could compare the gpx I used a month ago with the one generated today but sadly I don't have it anymore :(
Now I think it could have something to do with recent site upgrade on GC.com, they f**ed up something I am afraid. I will try asking on their forums.

hmm when you went to ostrava, isn't there chance you had some data downloaded by any add-on? I should expect that cache with corrected coordinates should have in GPX file final waypoint with these coordinates, but nothing like this is there. So maybe that this is a problem. Cache has already fixed coordinates and waypoint is missing.

Sorry for corrected coordinates. When I wrote the stuff around this, there wasn't field IsCorrectedCoordinate. I will try to fix it ASAP. Today I'm returning back from vacation, so maybe at evening.

On GC.com forums (http://http://forums.groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=314235) they told me that the GPX files coming from PQs actually never contained any flag about corrected coordinates, so now I am confused. Perhaps I really just used the G4L addon but just don't remember that? Anyway, if that is true, I hope they implement this feature at some point...

I don't know if you class this as a display bug, but on vector maps, short elements of dotted lines may disappear for certain angles at high zoom. For example, using a V-Scale theme to display OpenAndromaps Great Britain map, the short elements of power lines disappear on sections where the lines run close to 45 degrees. I know this is not a Locus built-in theme nor a Locus Store map, that's why I am slightly hesitant about flagging it here - but as far as I can see it is a display bug in Locus.

Edit: The points illustrated above are: N 52° 10.877' W 01° 00.129' and N 52° 10.574' W 00° 59.969'. A similar problem occurs with the Locus England map and Locus built-in Hiking & Cycling themes, which display major power lines, though I initially thought they did not.

I report on this version following bugs: long pressing zoom in/out buttons makes Locus crash with any kind of map
and
Screen turns off during work sometimes in random situation (I don't observe this behavior with other apps,)

I also see map shading inactive for zoom kevels 100% and above. Is this bug or intention? I'd like to have map shading for all zoom levels if possible.

Thanks and sorry. I didn't notice the discussion.

I have one more question about unit. Pressure unit of weather.
Is 'mBar' commonly used in the field of weather forecast in Europe?
In Japan, it was replaced with 'hPa' long time ago and 'mBar' is no longer used.
Of course they are mathematically the same.

Yes that was it. What are the gestures for turning off/on screen? Maybe this feature would be more useful active only in map view, would you consider to turn it off inside menus and dialogs? I have encountered many unintentional screen offs while editing route description with onscreen keyboard)
Quote from: "menion"

I am mistaken that's nothing to do with magnifier but map zoom layer. So for layers up to 15 shading is present, for layers 16+ it's off. Would the shading be possible also for layers 16 and above?

Thank you for your reply. The reason I asked is that I'd like to test the offline POI database and it's supposed to work only with test/beta versions of Locus. In the thread
http://http://forum.locusmap.eu/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=3267
the following is written:
Quote
install latest locus test version from here viewtopic.php?f=25&t=3189#p21696 , at least 2.13.2.5, to make it work correctly

It is quite strange that the POI feature can be tested only in some short time intervals when new test version is released (even if it works in all of them). Is it possible to download at least the last testing version somewhere?

- GPX version appears not only GPX but also KML, CSV, TCX, DXF.
- The question mark button on the right of the GPX version doesn't work.

- If both Pro and Test are installed, Enable/Disable Shading maps from Settings doesn't work on Test version. It only works on Pro and affect for both Pro and Test versions.
- Enable/Disable Shading maps by Quick switch works well for both Pro and Test independently.

- Shading itself works very nice for all online/personal/vector! Thanks!

Hi menion,
thank you for new testversion ;)
after short test i notice that there is a small bug while changing mapfolder.
After start, i can choose maps of online, personal or vector foldes, but it is not posible for me, if i had displayed a online or vectormap to display a personalmap :oops: i am only able to switch between online and vectormaps.
After restart for example is displayed a vectormap and i can select and display a personal map one times, switching to vectormap, the same as before. :?:

i have two vectormaps in the same folder, "Germany.map" and "Freizeitkarte.map", both maps are displayed well in official locuspro,
but in this testversion the map of the Freizeitkarte is not displayed well, only something like hillshading.

Hillshading works well with a "peronal.sqlite" but not with a "personal.rmap" also a rastermap createt with Compegpsl

Hi menion,
thanks for the new version.

1. Shading with own maps (these are my favorites e.g. Outdoor Active) is very very slow.
2. The test version does not reuse the last own map zoom factor, it shows after a new start always zoom 11 or 12 instead of the last used 16.

As I reported, this problem seems to happen only when both Test and Pro versions are installed.  Workaround below works for me.

a) enable/disable Shading maps by using Quick switch, but not through the settings menu.
b) enable/disable Shading maps through the settings menu of Pro version. The setting in Pro version also takes effect to Test version.

silber1, you need to manually download the hgt-files for the region you would like to have shading for, so that Locus has the elevation data needed for the calculation. You can download them from within locus by creating a temporary POI and then filling the altitude from the second TAB (advanced).

I hope this helps.

Using the new double tap and hold zooming, some tiles sometimes stay empty after zooming out. Locus simply displays "unknown problem". This is for RMAPs. Maybe a more specific error message in the tile would help spot the problem immediately :)

ps, could you update the expiry time please? one week is a bit harsh when on the road in offline territory :/

pps, i just lost the status of track selection again after a reboot. maybe it has something to do with the autobackup feature and trying to start locus too quickly?

sorting tracks by name doesnt work in the new beta. the track list is messed up nicely.

Current version is not perfect. There is need for ability to reproject maps on the fly, to allow overlay all possible maps, not matter what projection they has. But it should take much more days ... so for now, in new test version is final solution that should works fine.

otherwise, sorry if there will be any problems, expect that it's really a test version where major part around loading and zooming maps, was rewrote, so it may contain bugs ...

2.14.1.7. still fails with "unknown problem" when zooming out rmaps from time to time. happens with double-tap-and-hold as well as with pinch-and-zoom. maybe related to starting another zoom operation while the first one is still "updating" map data?

related: it would be SO NICE to have the map data updated WHILE zooming, not just when zooming is finished. otherwise the whole zooming process feels more like being on a commodore 64 in the early eighties. most phones have four cpus these days... use them :-).

@ta-ka: this problem is in Locus for very very long time. We're anyway working on better version now, so it will be for sure fixed

@joeloc: hmm, there is only one place that may cause problem you see. I fixed it little, but because I'm unable to simulate it exactly as you, I'm not sure it will help. You'll see. And about zoom - here is not main problem power of devices, but speed of SD card and data transfer. Most time consume loading bitmap data from file and creating a bitmap object used for paint. And I can do little with this. Also more CPU used for such task > more battery consumed.

Post by: joeloc on August 28, 2013, 14:44:41
I dont understand the power usage argument. You have to load the new map data anyway when zooming ends. It's just a matter of loading it earlier and maybe keeping different zoom levels cached a bit longer. The only argument I could understand was "too much time consuming programming work required to make it work smoothly". But that sucks as it shows me a useless white screen as long as I dont remove my fingers.


Then again... maybe all zooming problems and all horrible-3-fps-slownewss-track-display-problems will be solved automatically by a future OpenGL version, that is probably very close to being finished :-)).

if you zoom with fingers from, let's say level 11 to 12, then yes, I need to load it. But if you zoom from 11 to 13, Locus skip level 12, so there is one more less loading. That's what I though.

Anyway I still thank that rendering and working with maps is too slow. So less such graphics features, better. When, in distant future, Locus will fully run on OpenGL, we should discuss this also ...

For me it works different:
double tap and remove finger from display -> the bars appear
double tap and leave finger on display -> zooming is activated

Playstore is still on 2.14.1 which is as expected.

The Garmin map loads up and performance is outstanding! Really really really love this new option to use Garmin maps. My only 2 complaint2 with the current implementation is that I cannot hide the labels and can't overlay a Garmin map on a Online map. Another big step for Locus! Thanks so much!!

I'm surprised you're happy with it. Results aren't even from half as good as from MapsForge library I think.

Anyway glad you find usage for it. Currently there is not settings for these maps. System that is used directly for rendering is quite a simple and it should be easy to improve it, anyway I'm worried that using IMG maps violate "Terms of use" of Garmin, so I'll probably not public this feature as official in Locus and also will not work (too much) on improvements. I'm worried situation that was previously (more then two years ago) with online maps, when I had to remove almost half of all maps and users were really angry :)

And btw. new test version for interested people

So what does this mean exactly? Will I never see support for Garmin in the Pro release? Could it be a hidden feature enabled via the config file as to not draw attention from Garmin? It's really difficult to use any Garmin specific IMG files as their library is not human readable and files are broken up into lots of parts. However there are many websites that publish IMG files since Garmin is the most popular GPS. There are also lots of tools to create IMG files which comes in handy. How can these tools exist to create IMG files if there is risk for you to simply read/display them. Also, can it really violate their licensing if a person creates a IMG map with a third part tool? If there was another easy way to create a "vector" map with tracks I have I would be all for it but the only solution is to create SQLLite maps which has many shortcomings including zoom levels, file size, and possible transparency (for overlay).  Keep it a hidden feature that is not marketed, only accessible via forum knowledge and it shouldn't be an issue. If it ever becomes an issue then removing it wouldn't have the large impact that the other maps issue had.

Thanks!

Right! I'm not happy with the results of Garmin map  :'( This is a free map for Finland, one eager beaver converted the survey map into .IMG format.
Mostly I am missing the shading of different landscape (fields, forests, open cliffs, etc), buildings(!), major roads (now I have two thin lines for opposite lanes), etc.
I do not have original Garmin maps, so I do not know how good your rendering is on them. But this Finnish maps looks much better even on a low performance Dakota 20 than on Locus.

So..., there seems to be a lot to do, so make sure that your efforts are not wasted on a non-publishable feature.

I don't want to sound so negative :), for me Locus is very nearly perfect ;D, I just haven't found a good map for all purposes.

I installed a folder with Garmin IMG files into the mapsvector folder but I still can't see them in the map list on Locus. Do I need more files than the IMG files?

  b) Dashboard appear immediately, but it take minute till some numbers display (all of them or just any?)

2) may you please do me once more crash log with this new test version? I'm not able to reproduce your problem with long guiding line

3) you placed *.img files directly into Locus/mapsVector directory and they do not appear in Locus > maps > Vector tab? Hmm may you share one small map so I can test it? Thanks

The "open" maps are almost worthless in the woods (IMHO).
I took two screenshots and placed them side-by-side, judge yourself, which renders the same map better, Locus or Dakota. (Note that the screenshots are 800*480 (Locus) vs. 240*160 (Dakota)).

Yes they are in Locus/mapsVector/. I moved 3 files from the subdirectory direct to Locus/mapsVector/ but still I don't see them. And yes tehy have exact same size.
Just a comment: ivo, are you using "Locus/maps/Vector/" or " Locus/mapsVector/" ? The first one is correct.

I was using mapsvector, not maps. Will try.
Today I noticed something with dashboard. I tried the preset white simple. When I open locus the white fields are immediately there but the numbers take ages. When I lock my screen and unlock the scree again, the numbers are immediately there. Maybe that helps to find the error.

@stebu,

you can try the online map of kapsi.fi. I think this map is integrated in Locus:

stebu wait, IMG maps really have to be in the same directory as vector maps from MapsForge so really in Locus/mapsVector/...

Sorry I made a big mistake. It was the first time for me to install a beta version so I thought I still have to click on the Locus Pro icon. Now I discovered there is a Locus Free icon. Now Dashboard is working and IMG files are there. I tried with German topo and it works great.
Only distance to GPS is still crashing after 99 km.

good, so two of three problems are solved

I'm checking your logs. Seems that problem is on quite a weird place. In a function Math.cos and Math.sin. So it's some problem in Android but have no idea what may cause this.

Anyway because line to GPS isn't simple line, but it's a geodetic curve and exactly on 100km, I change it's precision, I improved code a little, so you'll see in next version. I hope this will help

Latest version shows strange behaviour when using full-world-maps. Install
http://www.openandromaps.org/maps/world/World.zip
and zoom out massively (World 00 20% or something). Then scroll. Waypoints jump around wildly. The map jumps around as well.

Is there any chance to work with themes aka garmin typefiles? Perhaps we can find somebody to help. ;)

The button 'Maps' shown in picture was 'Navigation' if I remember.
Isn't it wrong? It actually starts google navigation.

I have this FC too.
1. I tried first without catlog, sorry
2. I got the FC and now I cannot start Locus Testversion anymore even after a reboot.
3. I startet catlog before starting Locus and after the FC I saved catlog. for you.
4. I  reinstalled the test version and got again the FC direct after the start.
5. I deleted app data and could now start locus Test but of course all settings have gone.

Some .img maps are working, some not. Belgium, Finland, France Alpes, Poland, Norway, Tracks4africa, Island, Svalbard, Germany, Sweden, Pyrenees and Russia(only at some zoom levels) are working.
Canada, USA and Chile are not working. All maps are working in Basecamp software. I noticed that if IMG is written in capital letters, it will not be recognized as map file.
In my Garmin Canada installation there is one folder (CT2) with all Canada topo north files and above there is one CT2.img, CT2_mdr.img, CT2.tdb and one CT2.mdx file. Do I have to copy them also?

I am most keen on Canada north because there are almost no maps from Nunavut area and the Garmin map is very good.

thanks, I'm just working on it. This error occur only in published versions, not on my testing. Seems to be some problem in Proguard (mechanism that improve code before release), but cannot find a working solution.

@ivolino: I'll check it

The upper img file is the overview map.
If I press center map on the topo map I see nothing but if I zoom out I can find the topo part. Show center is not working. The lake names are sometimes shown 10x. The lake shape looks also very strange.
I agree with many others. Don't waste too much time for integrating Garmin maps. It would be better to find a program to convert Garmin .img files to .map files. Also because there are 1500 .img files in the Canada North folder, the map folder page is loading very slow.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.14.X+ (updated 29.8.2013)
Post by: menion on September 02, 2013, 19:08:06
so
1) centering - on one of you sample map, I found that one of four border coordinates is missing. So I improved it by moving map center to one border. So in this case, you'll not be centered, but just moved on border of map. Better then now
2) labeling - library I use, use own logic for rendering. As many other things, this is a question whether invest time and improve it, or not. And for now ... not
3) loading of long list ... yes I know about it. This is something that will change in near future. I spend almost three day on writing completely new background system for these screens with lists, so it will be introduced in one of future releases

EDIT: and btw. I tried just rename some maps to UPPER case, and they still works correctly, so I don't know what is problem with your maps, but it will probably not be a problem of name (you may simply check it by renaming)

Just the ending was in upper letters. So the map was not recognized as norway.IMG but as norway.img

Thank you.

1. The magnifier works again.
2. If I zoom out with double tap and then zoom in again the adjacent tiles are not written again at the first try. I have to zoom out and zoom again. Moving the map alone does not help.
I tested this with two personal maps.

Also "on the couch" I can not get rid of track after I activated "test navigation" on it. Deselect all "via menu in Tracks" does deselect but the track stays in the mapscreen. The track is according to the info-box renamed to Navigation.
After a restart of Locus Free test the track is gone from the map screen.

@hank: imagine that "Navigation test" will always start navigation. When you stop navigation, track will disappear and previous appear. You may also tap on this new track and from bottom menu choose "hide", which should help also

Can't confirm. After stop the navi track is still on screen (with the thin blue line and the waypoints from the waypoint calculator).
Only after hide track the original track appears.

I want it.
