Title: [APP] - version 2.18.X+ (updated 10.2.2014)
Post by: menion on January 03, 2014, 12:35:10
10.2.2014 - Locus 2.18.0.12 - RC4

changes compare to 2.18.0.11
- fixes in map rendering

9.2.2014 - Locus 2.18.0.11 - RC3

changes compare to 2.18.0.10
- hopefully fixed all possible problems with map rendering. Maps should be also a little bit faster - did you noticed any difference on your device? Hope so ...
- improvements in Garmin IMG rendering
- some small fixes

5.2.2014 - Locus 2.18.0.10 - RC2

changes compare to 2.18.0.9
- improvements in loading map tiles - personal maps should be a little faster now
- complete rewrite of design of all screen that do not have any content (for example when you have no points, no maps, etc..)
- new icons for files (will be also used later in new attachments screen for points)
- improved formatting of UTM coordinates
- fixed small problems in reloading of smartmaps
- and some minor changes based on feedback
- big update of rendering style for Garmin maps
  I've decided to give this format a small chance, so I examine how small library I use works and started chaging rendering system to allows some modification. So forget for now on texts (they're really bad), and focus on style of map itself. If you use IMG maps and will want improve any style, then I need - map (img file) with specific item on map, place where should I see it, and screenshot how it should looklike (for example on garmin device)

31.1.2014 - Locus 2.18.0.9 - RC1

changes
- added ability to edit style even for temporary tracks (even that it dissapear when track is lost)
- added ability to display custom coordinates in dashboard
- added support for colors in GPX files (tracks)
- refreshed all Garmin icons (used current default icons from BaseCamp)
- improved "closing" dialog
- some improvements in magnifier
- small improvements in GPX and CSV export (mainly compatibility problems)
- improved delete/remove dialog
- improved loading of maps - set "lazy loading" on big screens
- fixed not working Google Places - rewrote to use new Google API
- fixed small problem with moved times in field notes
- fixed problems with loading of multiple waypoints of opencaching caches
- fixed problems with export to Google Earth
- fixed problems in track chart (mainly during track record)
- fixed small problems with compass title
- removed not working Hike&Bike maps from Osmapa.pl

Also little sorry for a long time without updates. I'm currently mainly working on new screen for Points (merged small dialog on map together with geoaching screen etc.). I expected to make it fully working after few days, but unfortunately it already took me almost 50 hours and it's still not done (what's funny is, that it looks almost same as current screen). Anyway, in testing and also in new market version, will be still old good dialog. I'll publish new testing version with this dialog after new 2.19.0 version ...

Just a small taste ... feedback and ideas (based just on screenshots) are welcome

- added ability to calibrate compass (pitch, roll)
- fixed problem with incorrect resizing of TAR maps
- added ability to define items below and above "add new path" line (in cfg file)

3.1.2014 - Locus 2.18.0

new version is slowly uploading to Google Play and other servers

Hi Menion, wouldn´t it make sense to post the changes in this new version in the first post?
Like that people don´t have to look it up in the 2.17.x thread and what about the changes from version 2.17.4.7 to 2.18 ?
Thanks a lot for the frequent updates, the constant improvements and all the new functions that we keep getting!!

edit
Me again,
i just played with the new version and found two bugs:
In a list of tracks the 4 buttons at the bottom (selection, sorting, filter and tools) are greyed out and can´t be clicked as soon as i select or deselect any of the tracks.
I have to leave the screen and go back to it to be able to use the buttons again. I am not sure if this bug is new to this version or has been there before.
The second bug concerns the new groups - the delete button is not displayed, i can only see "rename", but when i click below the rename buton i can delete the group. So it looks like the button is just not being displayed properly.
Phone Info: Android 2.3.6, Galaxy Ace 2

Post by: szebenyib on January 03, 2014, 18:57:15
I can confirm both of the reported bugs.

edit
Enhancement proposal:
Long press on group should bring up the menu to rename or to remove that group.

Hi guys,
  damn, problem with inactive buttons in track list is really bad and I don't understand, that no one from our team during half day testing do not found it. Both problems are fixed. I'll probably release one more version during sunday/monday after more problems appear ...

Ah and list of news: I hope that news in application itself is enough

Post by: tommi on January 03, 2014, 21:28:10
This is still not working:
Hi Menion,
as quite often I created a little tour with brouter yesterday.
I pressed Navigation Beta and it seemed that navigation started but there were no instructions for left right etc.
I had a look on the display with the pink track. Usually it shows white arrows at the location of turns. Though there were lots of turns not a single white arrow was displayed.
As this always worked in the past I tried to find out what's so different with this track.
And here is the result: Navigation Beta doesn't indicate turns if start point is equal to end point of the track. I have a POI "at home" which I used for begin and end of the track. Seems I didn't use this POI for both ends of the track in the past.

ah I forget to add you comment on this ... sorry. I spend on this problem few hours and I still have absolutely no idea why this happen. It has nothing to do with "Navigation generator", it's just a problem of navigation itself. It's my task to next version, thanks for remind Tommi.

@ menion
thanks for the quick fix, this is one of the reasons why i love your app so much.
Just thought it would be handy to have the changes listed in the thread, as we are here to discuss these changes and comment on them. I also find it handy to read the changelog before installing an update to decide whether there are changes in it that are interesting to me.
I agree with szebenyib, a long click on the group to change the name or delete is would be more intuitive than using the menu button. Found myself long-pressing the group a few times before looking for a different way to edit / delete it.

edit
I have found another bug which i think has been present for a while but i forgot to report it last time i stumbled upon it.
It concerns the height profile diagram of a calculated track (calculated by Locus this is).
It´s a display error as seen on the first attached screenshot. In the second screenshot i zoomed in and you can see what is causing the problem - for some reason the streetnames and instructions for the track are being shown at the bottom of the diagram.

- I hope that news in app will be enough ;)

- long-click on group name -> I personally almost hate long clicks (mainly because you do not know that something like long click exists). I agree that handling with groups is currently little complicated and will think about better way. On second side, how often you work with them? From my point of view, main problem here is "discover" for new users, how to work with them.

- point names on tracks > this is not a bug, but intent. Unfortnately displaying points on chart is currently, as you may see, weird. I of course plan to improve this, it just matter of time

If tracks are grouped - no information about a activated / loaded track is shown when the group is closed / folded :(

One track is loaded in group 'Mtb'.

I love the update with how you select areas of the map to download.  Sure beats the old rectangle way of selecting a area  :)

Nice work mate thanks for all your great work

I also like it. Best on it is, that it's perfectly precise, so Locus really download only! tiles that has at least pixel in defined area

@Christian & KaHeMu
About information in groups - I was also thinking about it. I also miss some difference between close/open group. I'll do something with it to next version.

Maybe a long press is not the best way, but a solution like the points: on the right part there are three dots that open a menu intuitively.   ? :-) (only as an addition to the existing possibility to the top right menu

The icon of the group could be used to signal: 1-empty group, 2-group with items none active, 3-group with some items active, 4-group with all items active     ? :-)

Aww I really didn't want to sound pushy or demanding about this. I just thought that it is easier if you have more options to choose from :-)  Locus is already more than I could wish for! :-)

Tested track selection - ok.
Groups - number of groups is visible and delete button is present in groups pop up.
Basic start screen was present but I didn't change anything there. Qr code generator seems to work fine :-) created one then took a photo of it, recognized successfully.

thank you for test, appreciate it!

QR Code generator seems to be funny toy, on second side, I did this on request of one guy (for precise geolocation photos taken by external camera) and I hope, I'll get from him some good how-to on this topic ;)

Hello.

OpenSledMap doesn't show map tiles properly. Empty tiles(Not exists) and Gray tiles(without roads and borders) appears almost all zoom level. In fact, I found the issue when OpenSledMap was added to Locus. At that time I thought it was network problem. But it seems not because the issue is still there.

Post by: menion on January 14, 2014, 07:51:48
I'm sure it's ok ;) ... check list of items, there is (in English)

Navigation
----------------
"Out of track" notification

"Guiding"
----------------
Waypoints
Notification "On next point"
"Out of track" notification

Since some previous version, you may specify different "Out of track" notifications for guiding and for navigation, so I had to do two switches to "Quick switch". Anyway both has little bit different icons ;)

Thank you for the new test version. I'm sending you something I've noticed and some suggestions/requests.

Attaching audio, video and other files:
- It seems that the word "Recording..." is used for both audio recording and track recording.
  Could you please add a new word for audio_recording to assign better translation?

- For playing recorded audio, 'eye icon' and 'View' in the pop-up menu seems strange.

- The Question dialogue to 'Remove', bottom right button should be 'Remove' as well in stead of 'Delete'.

- The text 'Delete also files (photos) in memory' should be updated to 'Delete also attached files in memory' or something.

- In future, I hope voice icon and video thumbnail will be shown in the point's info window as well as photos.
  List of mp3 and avi file name there is not very nice and file name is too long, I think.

TTS notification:
- TTS notification for POI alert and out of track works pretty good.  I've updated ja.tts on google drive.

- POI alert > Text-to-speech Play : It seems test voice is not properly assigned.

- Test voice by the Text-to-speech Play button for 'out of track(navigation and guide)', 'next point' and 'poi alert'(maybe) is always 'Do you like Locus?'. How about to assign appropriate sample voice from *.tts for each notification test play?

Every Trail:
- T:Upload track to ... : unneeded character "T:" in front of Upload track to ...

Others:
- For Clear temporary data, the pop-up dialogue title is currently 'Clear cache'. Not all of them are cache now. So, 'Clear temporary data' or 'Clear data' may be better.

- How about to improve 'Add new point (camera)' to 'Add new point (attachment)' for audio and video attachment, too?  Or, it might be even better to integrate the pre-attach function to 'Quick new point'. (I prefer)

  nice list! thanks

Attaching audio, video and other files:
- It seems that the word "Recording..." is used for both audio recording and track recording.
  Could you please add a new word for audio_recording to assign better translation?
- done

- For playing recorded audio, 'eye icon' and 'View' in the pop-up menu seems strange.
- create new string "Play"

- The Question dialogue to 'Remove', bottom right button should be 'Remove' as well in stead of 'Delete'.
isn't this oposite? There is "Remove" already set

- The text 'Delete also files (photos) in memory' should be updated to 'Delete also attached files in memory' or something.
good point, thanks

- In future, I hope voice icon and video thumbnail will be shown in the point's info window as well as photos.
  List of mp3 and avi file name there is not very nice and file name is too long, I think.
I plan to completely rewrite base screen for points and for tracks, so I don't want to waste to much time on this now. Anyway I absolutely agree, that it looks bad :)

TTS notification:
- TTS notification for POI alert and out of track works pretty good.  I've updated ja.tts on google drive.
thanks!

- POI alert > Text-to-speech Play : It seems test voice is not properly assigned.
sorry, do not understand

- Test voice by the Text-to-speech Play button for 'out of track(navigation and guide)', 'next point' and 'poi alert'(maybe) is always 'Do you like Locus?'. How about to assign appropriate sample voice from *.tts for each notification test play?
I'll try to improve it

Every Trail:
- T:Upload track to ... : unneeded character "T:" in front of Upload track to ...
thanks, another testing text

Others:
- For Clear temporary data, the pop-up dialogue title is currently 'Clear cache'. Not all of them are cache now. So, 'Clear temporary data' or 'Clear data' may be better.
agree

- How about to improve 'Add new point (camera)' to 'Add new point (attachment)' for audio and video attachment, too?  Or, it might be even better to integrate the pre-attach function to 'Quick new point'. (I prefer)
good idea, agree - added to my to-do list

in new Testversion the photos are stored with all other "taken" audio/video in locus/data/media
In my opinion will be better, photos  furthermore stored in "photo_poi" folder

Thank you for quick response for every item.

- The Question dialogue to 'Remove', bottom right button should be 'Remove' as well in stead of 'Delete'.
isn't this oposite? There is "Remove" already set

Sorry for my poor explanation.  Please have a look at the image below. Operation start from 'Remove' button and confirmed by 'Delete' button. My point was to use the same word.

(http://s30.postimg.org/ffuczxkjh/remove_delete.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ffuczxkjh/)

- POI alert > Text-to-speech Play : It seems test voice is not properly assigned.
sorry, do not understand

Sorry again. By tapping 'Play' button of the POI alert's Text-to-speech test, I heard something like 'T POI alert test'. 'T' won't be needed.

- Test voice by the Text-to-speech Play button for 'out of track(navigation and guide)', 'next point' and 'poi alert'(maybe) is always 'Do you like Locus?'. How about to assign appropriate sample voice from *.tts for each notification test play?
I'll try to improve it

Thanks. With this improvement, I'm sure the above poi alert's test issue will gone as well. :)


Some more things...

Attaching audio, video and other files:
- As soon as ATTACHMENT tab is selected, Locus always opens software keyboard but there is no field for texts.

- When points are exported as gpx or kml, not only photo file but also audio/video/other files are copied into '*-photo' folder. Folder name may be updated to '*-media' or '*-attachment'.

ability to define items below and above "add new path" line (in cfg file):
- distance:1 and bearing:2 works fine but ETA:3 and elevation:4 shows nothing. (I've srtm files installed in Locus/data/srtm folder.) Btw, What is ETA? Estimate Time of Arrival?

@balloni: why this?
you already built a folder structure in locus
-media
-photo_parking
-photo_poi
-photo_screenshot
i think to searche  a photo in photofolder is much sipler as to search in a big mixed mediafolder for it.

to be true, I want to completely remove these photo folders. Because photo_parking contain always just max one photo, and "photo_screenshots" is not used too often probably, so these pictures may be also in media ...

hmm and what about structure

Locus/data/media/audio
Locus/data/media/photo
Locus/data/media/video
Locus/data/media/screenshots
Locus/data/media/others

possible? Maybe this will make all this stuff better organized

@ta-ka - thanks, all fixed.
You're correct with ETA and elevation. ETA is what you wrote - estimated time computed from current speed and "elevation" is little bit CPU consuming in cases you move with points fast, so I'll rather remove both these possibilities from config file description

@balloni:
You have empty screenshots directory when you take "Screenshot" with locus > menu > share feature? Have to check it. And what place to "others"? For now, photo from "Parking" feature ;)

5.1.2014 - Locus 2.18.0.1
changes
- added new feature "QR Code generator"
The QR code generator works well. (I'm the guy who has wanted this feature  ;))
There is already an application that used this feature for precise geolocation photos taken by external camera. It is an add-on for FixFoto (http://www.j-k-s.com/ (http://www.j-k-s.com/)) or Photo Perfect (http://www.photoperfect.com/photoperfect-introduction.html (http://www.photoperfect.com/photoperfect-introduction.html):
(http://abload.de/thumb/exprogksrm7.jpg) (http://abload.de/image.php?img=exprogksrm7.jpg)
But the QR code generator is still not perfect.  8)
Made up the photo of the QR code, the time is already outdated. It would be very, very nice if the QR code would update automatically every few seconds. And for safety's sake should date and time below the QR code with be mapped in a readable form.

Hi menion,

I found that on HTC J (Japanese version of HTC One S, android 4.0.4), just after opening GPS screen, Locus(Test 2.18.0.5) is forcibly closed with the message "Unfortunately, Locus Free has stopped.". It doesn't happen on Locus Pro(2.18.0). May I ask to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

@ta-ka: thank you! If you will have time, check please test version. For me on Xperia X8 also with 4.0.4 it works fine ...

@KaHeMu: it's a question - it's related to Geolocation of photos as well as track record. I found it also very useful to share specific location to another user. It's very easy and fast ...

Hello. I'm playing with 2.18.0.7 for a while and I'm noticing not preserved selection of mapItems between app restarts, sometimes. I remember that on older versions this was preserved always. Also under some circumstances POIs for newly selected mapitem category are not shown immediately but after app restart (when selection is preserved). There might be something odd in mapItems handlling. I'll try to reproduce this.

Hi!

I have noticed a small typo in the download map window, see the screenshot attached: instead of 'then' it should be 'than'.

There is a minor bug with the compass screen, (screenshots). I have chosen navigate to, and then opened the compass. As the distance decreased it changes over to the next point (distance is big again, then starts to decrease), however the name of the point is not updated to the current one.
Example:
>>Point 47 [290m - 129m] **change should occur here somewhere, since distance has increased** Point 48 [669m]
I have not tested it with navigate along track or guiding.

Interesting. I will have a look at Gaia, but I can say now that it is not interesting at all if vector masks aren't supported.
Beside, I have never needed US maps (CalTopo) since yet.

Nice, that you allow this advertising of the concurrence (?) on locus support pages.

Are you developing alone?
I cannot estimate how many developers you need for an app, could be four, why not?

There are also doing version for iOS so they have more work. And also it's quite different if you work on your own project 10 hours every day or as en employe 8 hours five days a week. Anyway Locus itself yes, alone. We are anyway two on developing. Peter is currently doing on new server solution and improve a vector maps we provide over Locus.

And advertising - why not :). I'm big fan of free choice, so let users decide what they want to use ...

Yes, I would love to do the acquiring of new customers on Maldives and Bahamas, looking forward for long stays there to acquire many new customers on the beach sides ;)

I tested a bit this Gaia app and beside a much too expensive (15 eu!!!) all average GPS app I found the IGN map for France included!
This is the only really interesting thing!
I remember when hiking in "mercantour", south France, 1.5 years ago, I needed these maps but couldn't get the download url so I copied all the jpg out from the website to use the map as pictures and this was important for our hike, the GR52A is marked on it. Other maps are more or less useless in this region.
 How do they get it? Is that the reason their app so expensive, because they pay for maps like this one?
You can even download the IGN map for offline use in the app, I don't know up to which size, but there seems to be no restriction. I should scrutinize the requests with Wireshark :)

By the way, I didn't bought the app, I refunded in between 15 minutes...

@franc: yes I also think, that a higher price is tax for paid map content. Anyway do not worry, IGN maps will be in Locus probably soon (within few months). Paid, but we hope not too expensive. Ah and also, price 10€ is quite cheap, their iOS versions costs double, 20€ ;) . On second side, all these prices for Locus, Gaia etc. are still very cheap (generally all software on Android platform). I think compare to other product you, as a people commonly buy in stone shop ... but this is another story :)

Thanks for the new update, and I definitely like the waypoint dialog extensions. This made me to add some ideas I already had earlier about extending the waypoin's properties, maybe some come worth implementing:
- ability to assign to all types of waypoints a POI type (like parking, castle, shop, person etc.) along with related icon
- ability to enable full edit dialog for individual waypoints within track, in the same range as standalone waypoint (ie. name it, assign own icon etc.), this could give waypoints on route further usability as I describe in following point
- named waypoints or waypoints with set POI type (either inside a track or standalone) could be in guiding mode announced differently from generic waypoints (either they could have own notification sound or named points could be announced by TTS)
- finally (but I'm afraid it's not planned in near future) add ability to edit waypoint's (inside track) navigation command (or add/remove it), so that user can adjust navigation commands by human logic instead of machine logic which isnot always perfect, especially with guide on all tracks feature

On second side, all these prices for Locus, Gaia etc. are still very cheap (generally all software on Android platform). I think compare to other product you, as a people commonly buy in stone shop ... but this is another story :)

Off topic:
That is true. Locus was the second app I bought on play. I was really thinking about it, because I am still a student, but buying a printed map costs a lot compared to it! With turistautak.hu (and now open maps) it is really cool to use in Hungary. Having an incorporated geocaching.com was another selling point. I couldn't imagine that all my needs would be incorporated in one application. Another killer feature of Locus is the support of menion (and yours guys :-)) . I have not seen anything that would come close to it. (Offering options for the users, improving software but never forcing the users to certain behaviour (eg. Microsoft removing start menu)
Recently I do not use geocaching.com anymore as it tends to be a 'cache in every bush game'. Instead of that I use geocaching.hu. The concept is similar, however you have to grab a password from the cache to prove that you have been there, better cache description, more attention to detail. And I can do that with Locus and a cell phone instead of a GPS! (I know in professional use it cannot replace an outdoor device, but hey there is a garmin monterra in the shops if someone needs it :-))

On:
All in all: Locus is definitely reasonably priced in my opinion. Keeping maps separately available for pay is good for me as I won't really go to the US for example very often.

...IGN maps will be in Locus probably soon (within few months). Paid, but we hope not too expensive...
In the meantime I got the URL which is even working in locus. At least at the moment. Maybe they change their code sometimes, don't know about this cryptic link.
...all these prices for Locus, Gaia etc. are still very cheap (generally all software on Android platform)...
This is very right if you compare it with desktop computer software but it is not comparable.
Apps are mostly for playing (often not for productive work) on the phones and only few user would easily buy many apps if they would cost 20-50 dollar each.
The mass is the counting and only a few really successful apps (Tasker, Titanium, Locus etc.) are making good money ;)
I wouldn't pay 50$ for locus even that I know exactly that it is worth it, because I managed several hiking holidays with it :)

After zooming -> some tiles are missing. In actual screen.
scrolling map works -> no tiles missing.

@bucky kid:
- types of waypoint: do not agree. I think that should be handled by separating waypoint into folders
- full waypoints for points on track: agree, it's planned
- improved announcment for specific waypoints: agree, should be useful
- ability to define own navigation commands: also agree.

this all makes sense and I'm sure it should be useful. Unfortunately all these features needs a little more time to complete. I'm adding them to my todo list, so I won't forget on them and when time comes .. :)

@szebenyib: nice to hear that you have so wide usage for Locus, perfect :).

also for @franc: no matter what maps we add (as a paid content), I do not want to charge anyone for some extra money, when he will not want. So everything what we add will be optional. Increase price for app and insert some paid maps "for free" is not a way I want to go.

@0709: the text used for this is "Track lies %D on %N1 o'clock" - so what you hear is probably "Track lies ...". Do you really think it's not needed? I imagine you should have enabled not just navigation, but also some POI alert etc. so better notification that also say "on what it notify", should be useful, right?

@gynta: three precise bug reports (live tracking, refresh of tiles, add new folder) - thanks, I will check it today!

@balloni: hmm minimise button was also in previous versions, but only if you had any service running, like track record. Try it now with track record ;). I moved "cancel" to top panel as a small cross. You may also use "back" button on your device to close this dialog ...

also main reason: if you enable for example track record, then in this dialog will be "STOP & EXIT", not just "EXIT". And when also "Cancel" button was at bottom, it really do not look nice .. too much buttons and too much texts. So I decided for this step ...

And how are stored - currently I use very simple system - every point on track you record and store to database, may also contain all possible information from sensors. So you should get only as much values, as you have recorded points.

@gynta: two previous problems solved. I'm anyway unable to reproduce problem with incorrectly loaded map tiles. I'll try it more deeply, because it should be really serious problem. And coordinates - I've changed this. Believe you agree. Previously there were only text "Coordinates" which do not make much sense.

@franc: test version install as Locus Free. So if you have Locus Pro on your device, you will have two locuses at once, but it is no problem. This test version will share most settings, maps, datas with Pro version and when you remove it (test version), you won't lost any data, so do not worry. In rare cases, Test version do some incompatible modifications to locus data, but in these cases I warn in news

hmm I'm anyway sure that what I did is correct. In this case, it's a problem of video recorders.

For example that one on my SGS2 record video to file, but when I stop record, there is no confirm button. So I press back and it return to Locus information - "failed" even that video was correctly recorded. Nevermind - when this "failed" response come back, I firstly check if requested file is recorded and if so, I just add it to the list. You may always delete it within Locus directly.

First of all thanks for taking another look at the Garmin (IMG) maps! Here are some of my thoughts/requests.

1. Ability to hide or resize lables - too large now and very distracting from the objects on the map. Of if they would disappear at higher levels that would also be helpful.

2. Ability to overlay and have complete transparency where the background is. This would allow to overlay on a terrain, sat map, or even a vector map. Basically providing the trails from the img overlaid on a standard vector or more detailed sat/terrain map.

3. Some way to emphasize/enlarge/set color of objects on the img map. Basically just need to be able to make the trails and objects larger/thicker to see better when overlaid on another map.

ad 2. - should be possible if there will be any menu with settings for img maps. Anyway I should make it automatic as well as for mapsForge vector maps. So if IMG map will be used as overlay, it will be transparent
ad 3. - this is exactly what I don't want to do now. My priority for now, is to create one! universal theme for all img maps, mainly focused on hike & bike.

Hi menion,

maybe there is a problem with loading maps downloaded with Oruxmaps with new test version 2.18.0.10. You can't see this maps, only text 'loading...'.

Last weeks I downloaded a lot of maps from IGM (Italian 'Istituto Geografico Militaire') to get ready for my next hike. With Locus Pro 2.18.0 it's all OK. Same with previous Pro and Free versions.

Regards,
KaHeMu

Without some type of control of labels it's kind of useless for me. OruxMaps has a couple dozen switches for Garmin maps.

See examples below - same map...

uff I'm dead .. sorry for no response. I finally make map loading work as needed. Anyway I'll do some precise testing tomorrow, because I don't want to make from you testing rabits in this case. There was just a few minor problems with loading of map tiles, but after some small changes in code, I was unable to make it work as before :). So result seems to be finally loading map without any issue and as a bonus, it looks it's a little bit faster and less CPU intensive now.

So working version tomorrow. Good night

@gynta: hmm yes, it is intent. It's same as when you press home button. Even here Locus do not display any notification icon .. never thought about it - you mean it's needed?

I'm still not sure, if do something more with closing dialog or not. Weird ... I usually have precise opinion, but in this case, I see no importance in this, so I do not know what to do  ;D. Probably nothing for now ... time will show as usually ...

And new test version - hope that maps will finally work fine.

I also spend more then a day on Garmin maps. Don't ask me why - I don't know (also). I found a few programs that are for PC, paid and even support these maps. Many web sites that offer various kinds of IMG maps. Seems that no-one except me worry about some "terms of use" and copyright. Funny ...

Anyway I found that one of maps I use for testing is not able to load. After a long testing, I also found, that modified library that Jose (developer of Orux) provide, is very old and that in his app is much more modified version, where problem with this map is probably fixed (it works for him). And for my surprise, most of changes is done by him personally, so if he reads this by any accident, I take my hat off, because he had to invest very very very lot of time into this.

I'll report some about POI alert and Parking.

o POI alert's [Terminate] button doesn't work.

o As the [Cancel] button has been improved to the [Terminate] button, related text will be modified as well.

  - 'cancel_session' : "Cancel actual action"   -> 'terminate_poi_alert' : "Terminate POI alert"
  - 'cancel_parking' : "Cancel current parking" -> 'terminate_parking' : "Terminate current parking"
  - 'do_you_really_want_to_cancel_parking' -> 'do_you_really_want_to_terminate_parking'

o I would like to ask to separate 'edit' and 'edit_session' into
    - 'modify_poi_alert', 'modify_poi_alert_desc'
    - 'modify_parking', 'modify_parking_desc'
  with concrete expression that is easy-to-understand the functions to user.
  Just "Edit" and "edit actual action" is too abstract, I think.

You know about the crowdin filter bug. filtering for "missing translations"
crowdin shows some already translated words - marked with green dots.
i picked this "green dot words" and confirm.

@gynta: oki :) I just still do not understand, how happen, that I received notification that you translated few houndreds of texts on crowdin.

@balloni: sorry, also do not understand. When you enable zoom lock, Locus "lock" on currently selected map layer and do not allow to change it, just rescale (change percents of zoom). As I'm checking it, seems to work in same way as previoud versions ...

After playing a little bit, i recognice that the function
"menu > settings > map - control & panels > Automatic zoom-lock"
is not the same as button right down "Lock the zoom"
With "Automatic zoom lock enabled" you are able to zoom over all available zoomlevels and if you reach the hightest you can scale up .
With "Lock the zoom" you are prisoned in actuell zoomlevel and you can scale up.
I don´t see the necessity of both posibilities
Perhaps you can simplify this to one option served by the padlock button?

I tried this auto-lock option and found possible bug: if auto-lock is OFF in conjunction with personal map, the manual Lock zoom button jumps to extreme zoom level (6400%) instead of 200% as in other cases. Not so if auto-lock is ON or with vector map.

Edit: but later the zoom lock button switches to 200% in all modes so maybe it's not bug.

With "Lock the zoom" you are prisoned in actuell zoomlevel and you can scale up.

I don't think so, there were situations when I found manual zoom-lock button necessary even when auto zoom-lock is used. It gives better control of desired layer and magnification.

I don't understand why new look of geocache screen? Old was great, all informations are in one window (no necessary basic info or attachments), and on bottom bar. I don't want to tap on small button on top bar. Why you change good thinks to new? Users want this? In my opinion better was old geocache screen, no need to any changes.

Locus is great app. But too many improvements changing interface or other things make similarly to ex. Skype. In past - very good app, today - too many functions, too many "improvements".

is the "Heart rate monitor BT 4.0" support supposed to work with low energy (BLE/Bluetooth smart) devices or just the regular ones? I've tested with Polar H6 sensor and it's not recognized - Locus Bluetooth manager shows just paired devices - and there is, AFAIK, no pairing for BLE ones.

@balloni, bucky kid: as Bucky kid nicely show, for every settings exists person, that find it useful :)

But balloni has a good point. Question is, if there is any serious usage for Settings > Map - control & panels > Automatic zoom lock - set to off. Probably no. This settings happen a long time ago, when overzooming was really slow and some people don't like it. I know there may exists people, who wants to force Locus stop on last zoom level, but how much of them exists? I should move this settings to config.cfg file for them ...

@layio:everything is changing, mainly in Locus. It's a side effect of fact, that I do not have precise plan on few years to future.

Current situation is that you have to press on point on map and then with bottom button you get to geocaching screen. On both screens are very similar possibilities. Both screens aren't well optimized and mainly on tablets is looks bad. I also want to improve usability and maybe add some new features.

And same future is planned for track screen. Just warning.

Anyway I'm sure you will like it. It won't be so dramatical change, on second side, I hope it will speed up work with points and later also unite design for more screens in Locus

@head: hmm sad to see this. You are testing it with latest Locus version? And did you used "Heart rate monitor (BT 4.0)" panel for connection? Hmm I purchased PanoBike TopPeak HRM for testing and with it, it works correctly. From documentation, it looks like all devices should now use same system for communication (not like before with BT 2.0/3.0). But if it won't work, it will be again a problem ...

How about adding camera directory to cinfig file, too?

So ... I do not understand :)

There are two ways how you may take photo
  • In locus by adding attachment. This should call your prefered camera app and took photo should be stored into Locus directory (in new Locus version to Locus/data/media/photo)
  • You use camera apploication directly and later attach photo in Locus. In this case, I cannot control where this app store it's photo
When I go to search/Localized photo, the second option is "camera directory" and currently Locus (last published pro) shows that this directory is "/storage/sdcard0/DCIM"
I would like to have the configuration possibility to change this directory's address to "/storage/ExtSdCard/DCIM".

Better yet, if you could check the camera application's settings and see where it stores the photos, but it's not necessary, since this place is (normally) set only once.

I'm checking in code, how I find correct place of took photos and seems I do not use best possible method.

Currently I used method for receiving external storage and added "DCIM". But there exists one more method, that should return directly preferred directory. Question is, if it will return directory set in camera app or just directly, Android this it's best. We'll see ;)

Registered just to say... Great job! Be proud of yourself, I know I am.
Found a small bug: Using a pdf as attachment works great, however it does'nt store the "open with application" setting when setting it to "always". I tried it with polaris office.

Keep up the good work!

@head: hmm sad to see this. You are testing it with latest Locus version?
Yes, the latest version available from this thread.
And did you used "Heart rate monitor (BT 4.0)" panel for connection?
Yes, it shows me a list of previously paired devices (e.g. my BT headset) but not the HR monitor.
Hmm I purchased PanoBike TopPeak HRM for testing and with it, it works correctly. From documentation, it looks like all devices should now use same system for communication (not like before with BT 2.0/3.0). But if it won't work, it will be again a problem ...
Strange ... some more data-points which might help. I'm using Nexus 4/Nexus 7 2013 with the latest Android (4.4.2). The HRM works on the same phone/tablet with https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pribble.htc.ble.hrm (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pribble.htc.ble.hrm).
Is your HRM visible as a paired device in Settings-Bluetooth or it just appears in "Heart rate monitor (BT 4.0)" panel?

Weird, as you may see on screenshots, I'm able to "pair" and then "connect in Locus". Hmm it will be another hard task to make it work with all BT devices ...

Really liking the new Garmin map rendering! I know you didn't want to mess with labels but it would be a huge help if there was an option to disable them or no longer show them at a higher zoom level. The labels overconsume the map at higher zoom levels and it's almost impossible to see the map.

hmm sorry, this won't happen. For MapsForge vector maps, you also do not need such settings, because rendering styles are so clever, that this is just not needed.

Same I want to do here. If you noticed, most lines has labels visible inside this line, not just as text next to. Labels of lines has light blue background and point is, there should be no such label. If there is any, it's a missing definition in style.

Main problem here is, that there is almost unlimited number of line types and definition of every possibility is just crazy. I was thinking about adding support for TYP files, but seems that format is not precisely specified and it should require quite a lot of work and time ...

So maybe later ...

Hi Menion, I have to apologize - it works for me the exactly same way now. I'm almost sure that the device was not visible in the pairing dialog in Android 4.3 (first version with BLE support) and I haven't tried it since - sorry :(
Thanks for your help and great work! - will do more testing over the weekend (especially related to a stability of the connection), but everything looks fine :)

Hi Menion,

You must be busy but I just remind you to fix the tiny bug on POI alert's [Terminate] button which I'd reported in the post below.
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3613.msg26741#msg26741 (http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3613.msg26741#msg26741)
Tapping the button doesn't terminate POI alert. I believe you can fix it in a minute.

About the suggestion to improve the text on POI alert and Parking,  you may think about it later when you have more time.
Thanks in advance.

ah sorry ta-ka.

"Terminate" fixed

texts - I think it's not needed to force all to translate these texts again. Sense remain same I think. Anyway if you want, you may improve Japanese texts, it's just on you ;)

I understand your proposal to add more specific descriptions to "Edit" and "Terminate" buttons. Anyway I want to has as less as possible texts. A lot of texts means more work for translators and bigger application. In these cases is question, if these descriptions are needed at all ...
