I definitely like the "More" over the "Modules" approach - it is the way non-IT-users understand Apps (I personally can live with both easily). To walk this way further I propose (like some others) to drop the "Data" layer of menues - this again is a pure technical category (as you store these infos in databases).
In your philosophy of "More", the "Tracks" and "POI" (the own ones, not the new DBs) are simply two items they want to deal with. What do you think ?

The way I could select own POIs, Tracks and elements with one button is OK for me. But sometimes I miss a button in POI details direct to corresponding category in POI-db or even better when I'm touching a POI sign in map screen I could select category or detail.

Btw. it could be very comfortable when details pop up without window between.  All functions could concentrate in one window.

I couldnt agree more. A GPS program that doesnt have Points and Tracks in the very first(!) UI layer is mostly useless to non-geeks.

Mummy: Where are my waypoints?

Me: Look here... your waypoints are hidden behind this funny icon that looks like a few pancakes and a floppy disk.

Mummy: What is a floppy disk?

Me: Something weird that was used twenty years ago, dont bother.

Mummy: But what does this floppy disk and those pancakes have to do with my waypoints?

Me: To be honest, I have no idea. The programmers seem to think that this is a bright idea and they stick with it since years. Internally, they store certain things in so called "databases" and this is probably what this icon represents.

Mummy: Can you give me another icon that actually looks like a waypoint and simply takes me to my waypoints?

Me: Sorry, not possible with this App.

Mummy: But isnt clicking on pancakes and fluppy desks a bit silly if I want waypoints?

Me: Yes.

Mummy: Can you install another app with icons that actually do what they say?

Me: Sure, just a second...

I also agree that data icon could go.

Post by: KaHeMu on October 01, 2013, 21:53:05
Whether the icon is round or rectangle I have no preference. That's menions pigeon!

I think the actual icon is very good for different types of data and a good reference to former periods. It fulfills all the functions.

After some testing I don't find any bugs, this looks to be very good version, but I would very appreciate if quick POI categories could have their own icon assigned so that they appear in the map with real sign instead of generic "i" , that would enable instantly dentify the icon meaning without having to open waypoint details first (especially useful when two or more categories are shown)

Oh I'm afraid I meant quick POIS, not regular POIs, those on picture. I try long press on it and there seems to be no editable properties available.

When post new field note (offline) keyboard is auto opened. On older devices keyboard sometimes is killed by system, because of low ram, and when is re-open it tooks few seconds. Maybe Locus will be not focus on text field when post field note?
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.16.X+
Post by: michaelbechtold on October 02, 2013, 12:08:24
Yes, you did - I am well aware of the icons in a POI definition.
My point was to give POIs and Tracks individual, separate function on the uppermost level (which implies they get an icon other than th eold "Data")

@druki: thanks ;)

@michael and others: "data" problem - I'm not sure I understand. You don't like two separate screens for points and tracks (so you want just one that unite both) or you don't like word "Data" and it's icon (so you suggest to separate it into two buttons "Points" + icon and "Tracks" + icon? Then what about "Items" tab?

And offline POI's will be in Locus in future. This feature is here just for testing in testing versions, not in public version.

@balloni: GC Vote problem fixed, thanks

@KaheMu: nice idea with direct link to POI/Track folder, I'll keep it in my mind. But what I don't understand is second part. "details pop up without window between" - which window between?

@buckykid: ah you mean "items" tab, understand. Agree it should be useful, for this exactly is topic on GS, so I suggest to vote ;)

@layio: wait, you say that your keyboard is killed by system due to low ram? Hmm, but this behaviour (opening keyboard when some window comes up) is used in Locus on many places and I think it's quite useful. Didn't you tried different keyboard? There is plenty of them on Google Play and I think, that these "keyboard kills" are quite weird

@balloni: yes I know about this problem on smaller devices. Screens starts to be quite full of all possible buttons ...

@ivolino: sorry, but dashboard will need a lot more time then just one afternoon and I currently has some other tasks to do

uff, hope I answered to all questions/problems. I'm sorry for small delay in my responses. I've full email inbox of some quite old not-responded issues so I'm trying to reduce these skeletons ...

Last option, Menion: Points-Icon, Tracks-Icon - and an Items-Icon (so nothing is lost).

And looking forward to the 2.16.X beta with the POI-DB back ;-)

I come back to this topic: http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3374.msg23973#msg23973. (Locus loads "wrong maps", if you are near frontiers and zoom from world map to higher zoom levels)
Is it possible, that  map choice depends of the distance to the middle of " neighbour" maps to your choosen points? In this case Locus will always load smaller neigbour country maps before the right larger country map even you´re in the larger country, because the middle of the larger country is more far away?

Voice navigation does not work at all for me in latest Pro. I could only once select a voice with that Locus function but nothing happened. All further tries to select a voice simply do nothing. No selection window appears. Andro 4.1.2. with ivona voice installed. Google maps voice nav works nicely, as do all other voice apps (eg ebook readers).

With latest Locus I keep seeing an orange OVER_QUERY_LIMIT almost constantly. Why is that? What is "over query limit"? How can I avoid it? Your error messages could really be slightly more detailed... :)
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.16.X+
Post by: joeloc on October 04, 2013, 07:11:36
regarding "data" pancake floppy disk madness. two things are important:

for beginners: give them icons that actually look like the functions they represent. points, tracks and layers. google (eg earth) call your "elements" function "layers", you should do the same and also use a similarly looking icon.

for pros: when i click the track icon, locus MUST take me back to exactly(!) where i was when i left the track list last time. same for points.

how you arrange it "internally", ie completely separate or within a tabbed view like now, does not matter much imho. I would like to swype left and right to change tracks though. And it would be GREAT if they looked pretty and were simply editable in place right away instead of going through another (pointless) edit function with another (confusing) view of the same data.

If you select any POI from POIs list, in particular geocaches, you have to do one more step from so called "window between" with button in the bottom left corner to see cache details window.

Last two days I was outdoor for a biwak in the forest and your app was the best tool for this trip. The only thing I could criticise was the consumption of battery. ;D But this is not a Locus topic.

Kind regards,

Hi all, tried brouter today, fed tons of rd5 to the right directory, put profile from 0.9.4 brouter zip in place and started 2.16.1 beta.
Which the tells me that the brouter service cannot find motorcar-fast config (neither the others).
I did configure the motorcar, bicycle and foot configs in the service tab of brouter. but do not see any new files in the brouter config folder.
brouter folder resides on /storage/extSdCard, BTW.

Did anyone try brouter so far ?

Hello Menion,
how did you set this up ? I trust it worked for you ;-)
Thank you !

about Free/ProTestVersion
After deinstall Free and install Test:

# Test version starts with "Turisitautak" map - my pos (mapcenter) is hundreds km in the void
# Locus show me all my disabled online maps again.

Why Test version don't use the Pro settings (if exits) like right panel, etc.

Hello,
1. If I use the map manager to delete a personal map that is not current one, map manager is closed and I am returned to map view with "Connection failed". I think the map manager should not be closed and the map should stay as it was since I deleted a non-current one. This should also apply to overlays (not sure if it works there currently). Only when a current map is being deleted, thete should be some error message in the map view I think :)
2. when I download geocaches via G4L, some of them have corrected coordinates and are properly marked with star on the icon. Then I export them to GPX, transfer to my brother's phone who uses Locus Free and imports the GPX file. The geocaches are moved to corrected coordinates but there is no indication of the coordinates being actually corrected (no star on the icon). Can this be fixed?

Displaying Openstreetmap notes don't work (even in the current Pro PlayStore Version). I have read http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manual:openstreetbugs but even if I activate the function to display OSM Notes and wait for several minutes without moving the map, nothing is displayed. Sending of Notes seems to work (message about success and they added my provided info some days later).

@KaHeMu: ah finally understand what you mean. Agree, I also want to remove dialog screen in case, you tap on geocache, but it will take some time

@joeloc: I'm unable to reproduce problem with navigation voice, no matter what I do. Did you tried to set again your voice and check volume of your device? :)

About "Data" screen ... ok, agree that "data" and also an icon are not the best choice, mainly for a new users. But we're with Peter unable to find any better solution. Google Earth use word "Places", but is it really better then "Data"?

@brotbuexe: there are two variables that are used during this. Time between clicks and also an distance between clicks, so make sure you tap on as same place as possible. I'll try to improve it a little anyway

@gynta: I know you already know this limitations. Every android application store it's preferences in own private place (Locus Free and Pro are two different apps). And they cannot share it's preferences. Some of settings are anyway stored on card, like panels, wms maps, live tracking etc. so these are shared in both versions of Locus

@druki: I'm unable to simulate it, for me, OSM notes works fine. Are you checking it on place where are any notes already reported?

@Mek: do you have enabled on second device "Move to final waypoint" in settings? I'm testing it with latest version and it works fine. And disabling map even if not current fixed

@tramp: hope, backup will be better now. We'll see after tests

@gynta & → problem ... thanks

I'll use my poor English to keep topic in same lang ...

I found reason for linking to dropbox finally yesterday and it's fixed now. About export to dropbox ... I'm working on it since morning. Because of this, I had to rewrite big part of export system, so it will need some more testing.

aaaaand ... test version. Enjoy dropbox ;)

and btw. there is one secret improvement. You should "import" map files as well. It should work also for an maps stored on dropbox (locus will download them directly to Locus/maps directory and add to list of maps)

@brotbuexe: there are two variables that are used during this. Time between clicks and also an distance between clicks, so make sure you tap on as same place as possible. I'll try to improve it a little anyway

Okay. Don't moving the finger between the clicks that much do the trick. I'll try it on the bicycle and check if it's still works on the go.

It's also little bit improved in latest version so I suggest to check it there. There should be problems when you scroll a map with one finger fast (slide map, put finger up, grap map again etc.), so it's need to find good compromise between these two gestures

I don't know what i make wrong but in my Locus ,Brouter with the new  2.16.0.2  is not working corectly.
When i try to create a route i see http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/7088/j02n.png (http://img9.imageshack.us/img9/7088/j02n.png)

instead of http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/4748/hq9y.png (http://img197.imageshack.us/img197/4748/hq9y.png) or http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/783/25m.png (http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/783/25m.png)  what was in 2.16.0.1

I mean- maybe Brouter calculate a route but this calculated route is not on the map.

Voice nav still doesnt work in latest beta. Settings/Choose Voice simply does nothing. No window appears... no error message... nothing happens at all when i select this menu item. I am sure voice nav worked in older versions already.

Other voice apps work nicely for me. Only locus doesnt.

Short confirmation, Brouter works with motorcar options too. But you have to install BRouter as an external app before you can use it with Locus. So my question is, if there is the possibility to combine the two apps while installation or install BRouter as a "co app" ?

But i see that depends of what we choose here http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/6694/91up.png (http://img18.imageshack.us/img18/6694/91up.png)
we can get 3 ( maybe more)  different routes

a) auto-  http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/4163/uezw.png (http://img401.imageshack.us/img401/4163/uezw.png)
b) bicycle- http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/1623/urhs.png (http://img713.imageshack.us/img713/1623/urhs.png)

 This is of course not so important becouse we can created points manually( in case routing is wrong ) and have what we want.

brouter should be discussed at own topic. there is probably no more i can do now with this project and locus. it's not at google play right? so i cannot link on it. also installation is really complicated ... ah nice project but just for skilled user

I correct myself. Since I was apparently the only one with this problem, i reinstalled the OS and IvonaVoice and now it works more or less correctly.

I think the problem might have been related to languages, like running system and locus in german but only having english languages installed for ivona. Maybe if there is only one tts for the chosen locus nav language, locus should default to that automatically? I admit not knowing much about the android api for this.

@joeloc: I'm checking all possible places and there is absolutely all standard as on other places, so absolutely no reason why dialog do not appear. May you create for me a log please? Thanks ... ah, now I read your second post - you reinstalled whole device? Unfortunately TTS should use only same language as your app is currently set. It's not possible to combine different application language and different TTS (as I know)

Hello,

thanks for the new version, there are some nice ideas inside.

But since this version (maybe also since the last version) locus is slow in showing vector maps for me.
sometimes it needs 20 or 30 seconds until the complet map is on the screen.

If i use instead online maps, there are much faster.

I have Android 2.3.

have a nice week
alex

There appears to be something wrong with the calculation of font metrics for the outline on uppercase text for custom themes on vector maps. The positioning of the outline doesn't match the overlaid text for the road names on the attached images. This is not the case if there is no uppercase transform. Edit: On my phone (HTC Desire S) this depends entirely on the zoom level. Zoom 19 is particularly bad.

@alex_dd: online maps will be almost always little faster, mainly if you have area already cached. Anyway there should not be any slowdown of vector maps in last versions. Anyone experiencing some problems with speed of vector maps?

Abotu crash - I know https://getsatisfaction.com/locus/topics/cannot_select_1000_or_2000_pois_from_a_category , thanks

@michael: images are cached to Locus/cache/map/vector, so you can check it there. Anyway as I wrote many times, I'm not a fan of vector map caching and I'll not do any extra improvements in this way. Together with possibility to switch themes, autoload and share, caching is not a best approach mainly for maps generated offline ...

@joeloc: "cancel" button fixed, thanks. About crash - it will be worst. On which device did this happen? Should it be "OutOfMemory" problem?

EDIT: hmm it will be probably this problem. I'm checking code, and also during searching, I prepare thumbnail images for all new points. Even if these thumbnails are quite small, it consume a lot of memory in these counts, damn ...

I'm sending something I noticed and I have some request.

Quote
14.10.2013 - Locus 2.16.0.4 - test version
- full dropbox support for import/export
- complete new "File browser"
- When you select dorpbox folder as 'EXPORT PATH' then after you chenge 'EXPORT TYPE' from one to another, 'EXPORT PATH' gets back to the local folder path.
- Import data -> 'LOCAL' tab : It will be "LOCAL FILE" or "REMOTE FILE" will be simply "REMOTE".
- Could you please make the time format of the files/directories changeable according to the language?

Quote
- small improvements in dashboard
- I would like to ask you to separate three temperature texts to avoid translation problem.
  * temperature_units   : Localization -> Temperature
  * sensor_temperature  : Dashboard Editor -> SENSOR-Temperature
  * battery_temperature : Dashboard Editor -> Temperature (Battery)
- 'Empty item' is shown as display title when you change an item for which display title was already enabled.

Other:
Long texts blow 'Main menu' icons are not folded into two lines while those for 'LOCUS WORLD' and 'More' are folded.

anyway I found another quite serious problem so together with this, I improved also a little bit this import. Should be more stable and working without issues (tested 7 PQ files from dropbox - 7000 caches on older SGS2 device). May you please try this version https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8015949/Locus%20%28dev%29/test_versions/2.16.0.7.apk ? Thanks!

Everything is different :D I try your process from video. And found the problem.

Import more files from main menu is ok! Like you. But if I select import from submenu of specific category, Locus import only first file.

I'm afraid your strategy will never work for anything but minimalistic picture collections. How about
a) use android provided thumbnails.
b) only load actual graphics data when it has to be displayed.

b) is what usually comes in my mind, but problem here is in the lists .. what when you choose "select all" and then import and display on map? Hmm crash on note 2 at 60% (let's say about 1200 images), means crash on common devices at around half, maybe less. 500 images is still quite a lot, but it may happen. I agree that it's a problem. It's anyway a common problem in locus on many places. Just try to display (not import) more files and result will be same ... I'll think about it, thanks

EDIT: so expect this, rest should be fixed - hope - and it's available for normal usage in new test version

I've translated new texts at crowdin.net. I've also updated ja.tts.

- Don't you put prefix words like 'pref_gps_' or 'pref_guiding_' for newly created 'notify_*' texts?
- It seems that 'notify_next_point_desc' is missing.

Since there are relatively many new texts this time, could you please reflect the translations to the next test version? It is better to check them on the device before official release.

This is probably not what you want to hear :-), but a search function for georeferenced pictures (including manual user intervention and super major delays) is a bit too old-fashioned anyway. That's how things were done ten years ago imho.

Nowadays, with a modern design, I would simply expect to enable the "local photo layer" with a single tap (just as a "panoramio layer" or a "flickr layer"). Everything else should be done by Locus behind the scenes... in the background... quietly... unobtrusively... automatically... without bothering me... without blocking the rest of the user interface even for a split second... without forcing me to go through "database-ish" search modules... without forcing me to watch "working..." dialogs for ages.
 
Of course this means more work on the programmer side. You'd have to play with the media scanner, keep a database with all positions up-to-date somewhere quietly in the background, rescan only changed files, update the map screen automatically when new pictures show up, etc. But in the long run, man hours spent on an uptodate software design will prove more useful than trying to speed up a somewhat old-fashioned search function that will always remain cumbersome to use.

Wouldnt it be great if a new picture simply showed up in Locus as soon as I take it?

Parking in Locus POI database
Some maps get very confused with unhelpful icons for private parking appearing in many places. The standard Osmarender includes rules that say there must be either no access key, or access must be yes or public for the parking icon to show - see https://trac.openstreetmap.org/changeset/6939/subversion
a) The poi database for Locus ought really to follow that, IMHO
b) Locus maps ought really to follow that, too. Either implemented in the maps or the themes.

Hi mention,
I think this is a minor bug of latest test version: when switching to vector map from personal map at high zoom level (18 and above), nothing draws. I have to zoom out/in to start map rendering.

Thanks for that.
Now here's another one:
With the poi popup, if the caption has an apostrophe (e.g. St Mary's Church) the popup has two (e.g. St Mary''s Church) - that's two single apostrophes, not one double quote.

If distance to GPS in dashboard is 0, I would like to see a "-" instead of 0.0km. "-" needs less space so that you can see the map better. It is already so if you show e.g. track distance.

Rendering issues
1. The street name for side streets starts in main road. This can be remedied with a "dx="16" in the style, or similar
2. One way symbol starts in main road. This I can't remedy
(http://s11.postimg.org/609y8kirj/2013_10_19_08_16_32.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/609y8kirj/)
3. One way symbols get closer together as zoom level increases. The spacing depends on the particular road, however.

Hi John,

I tried it with my V-Scale Theme (http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3187.0). It looks quite diffrent. Maybe to less one way symbols. Because I can´t post a screenshot at this moment, can you please try it for your own?

The screenshots in my post above were with Locus internal theme and Locus England map.

The ones below are from jusc's V-Scale Theme. Note the road name and one way symbol starting in the main road, but that there are far fewer one way symbols. This is due to the absence of repeat="true" in the line:
Code: [Select]
<lineSymbol src="file:/symbols/oneway.png" align-center="true" repeat="true" />The downside is that there is only one arrow for each section of the road, and it can be obscured (see Salisbury Street and Lower Hester Street in the first image below).

Update on my post http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3423.msg24339#msg24339
I was mistaken when I said that it was connected with the uppercase transform. On my phone (HTC Desire S), the mismatch between the text and the outline depends critically on the zoom level, with zoom 19 being particularly bad.

Navigation / out of track notification is messed up:

1) Out of track notification = off vs. Settings of sound= disable:
Isn't that actually two settings for the same?

2) Navigation/Out of track notification distance vs. Navigation/Invalid distance:
Isn't that actually two settings for the same?

3) Nexus 7 hasn't vibration: can't store any setting in Navigation / out of track notification (doesn't accept touch on the set button)

@joeloc: give me name of any opensource app that may do it and I'll gladly fix it. Because I was unable to find a way to make it work

@tommi:
1) hmm on nexus 7 yes, on other devices (most of them), there will be also a vibration part, so you'll be able to disable sound and keep enabled only a vibration

2) no. I agree, it may be confusion and I'll probably think about it once more. "Invalid distance" change "navigation" to "guiding". Distance in notification is just only for a notification ...

3) ah yes, I found it also during a trip when I wasn't able to set POI alert, parking etc. because of this :)

*  the path symbols are complicated. It needs some changes in Mapsforge library - I’ll discuss it with menion.
My current workaround is
- displace the streetnames with dx="16" or so
- displace the one way arrows using a modified image with excess space at the tail. The arrow is rendered so that the centre of the image is centred on the centre of the (main) road that the side street comes off: (http://s8.postimg.org/5pokeqxa9/oneway.png) (http://postimage.org/)
- turn off repeat="true" following jusc
- displace the streetnames some more with dx="40" instead to avoid the arrows and the names clashing!
This is only a workaround, and it would be far better to do it properly.

I can understand but as you wrote: the one way symbol can be overlooked.  What about prohibit oneway symbol for highway=motorway|trunk ?

I’d like to have “margin” options for  lineSymbol or even better possibility to set pattern: [gap-symbol-gap-symbol]. We’ll see what is possible to do with Mapsforge lib.

The point is in great-britain.poi.db which I downloaded from this forum some betas ago from http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3267.0  - it's dated 31-07-2013 and is 130,612kb in size. As to how Locus produces two single quotes, I was hoping you'd tell me! ;D
I'm using the points of interest testing feature. I have a Great Britain map that I renamed to great-britain.osm.map to match the poi database file, as instructed previously, and one popup appears when the poi is centred on the screen, and the other when it is tapped.

Well yes... its a hack. But a nice one... especially if you want your system in english but really cant stand the not-so-pretty "locusian english" :-). Anyway... ES File Explorer for example can still change languages on very latest Android without problem. Its not open source, but I am sure they d tell you the proper hack.

- speed optimizations of tracks (mainly moving map with a lot of tracks)

Still seems a bit slowish :-). Anyway... watching cpu load while moving an online-map with a few 5000point-each-tracks on it reveals that only 1-2 (out of 4) cores are used. I hardly reach 30% overall system load. There is still a lot of potential, even without finally learning OpenGL... :)
