you mean generally whole map or just new point screen? Because whole app - it's not really possible. There were no change that should affect whole app at all on Locus side.

When I tap geocache icon on map, it show "working" and screen get black about 0,5 sec, and geocache listing show.

In opencaching logs, when I tap show user profile it show me geocaching.com.
Smile icons in logs are too big.

This version is unfortunately slower - geocache point not showing immediantely as before - "working" window every time, Locus get develop in wrong direction - too many new changes, but optimalization is bad...

Hi menion,

I just downloaded the new version but now I can't seem to edit my existing Field Notes.

Upon logging a cache I use "Store offline".
Then a few days later I take the time to write a correct Field Note with some extra text.

If I try this now I see my existing Field Note, when I click on it I get the choices again where I choose "Store offline" but instead of being able to edit my Field Note, Locus seems to add 1 to my Found counter and start a new Field Note.

If I go back, changes are luckily cancelled.

I think it's a bug as I have been doing it like this for quite some time :-)

Thanks for looking into it!

@vkap: thanks. If you find any place/feature where is slowness really visible compare to older versions, tell me and I'll gladly check it

@layio: we work on this screen more then four week and almost whole time were available testing versions. So now it's too late to say "It's a wrong way". I'm aware a "small delay" till new screen appear. On second side, previously you had to tap twice till you get to geoaching screen. So in the end, this is even faster.

- opencaching users - thanks, I'll check it

- about size of smileys - may you post a screenshot? Thanks

@wvb: you are absolutely right. Sorry for this. I'll collect as much issues as possible during next days and probably in friday I create version where will be all these problems fixed ;). Thank you for a precise report!

Post by: eldron on March 25, 2014, 23:56:01
I have just downloaded the new version and i really love the new point screen. I do a lot of geocaching with locus and saving one click now to open the cache info is really great.
I do have some issues though:
I agree with the others, that the loading time is quite high. For example - when entering a waypoint from within the point screen and hitting the back button it takes 3-4 seconds until i get the response... By then i have pressed back a second time and end up back on my map...
In the German version there is a display problem when clicking the menu button in the point screen. Menu Button 4 reads: GC Offlinizer <b><small><font color> (the html tags are being displayed)
Improvements:
When you click the "hint" button in a geocache and there is no hint you get no feedback. I´d prefer a message saying "no hint available", otherwise i can´t be sure that my click was registered.
The hint button changes position (in Waypoints it´s the right button, in logs it´s on the left) - Can´t it always stay in the same position to avoid misclicking?
And one thing that i find important: When creating a waypoint - why do i have to click the menu button to cancel? I actually had to search fo a while to find that and even though i now know where it is i keep searching for it and don´t find it intuitive at all. When creating a track there is now a bin symbol at the top - why not include that in waypoint creation too? Or at least pop up a prompt when pressing the back button that asks wether or not i want to save the waypoint.

@eldron:
Glad you like new design. Me too ;). "Loading time" is my task on next days. I already spend on it almost a day with analyzing what takes most time and followed optimizations. Problem is that screens are too complex and it takes a while till android create whole layout. I'll try to improve it of course

GC Offlinizer text - thanks fixed

Hint - fixed, thanks. Problem is that button is disabled when there is no hint, but seems that this button looks exactly same as when it's enabled.

And "Cancel" button - I sometimes follow existing solutions from Google. In this case, it's solution from original A4.4 Contacts app, where whole Edit/Save/Cancel system is almost same.

Screen where you edit track is also planned to rewrite in same way as this point screen and expect, that in the end, "Delete" button will be hidden in same menu as "Cancel" in this point screen.

@All:

suggest to watch and discuss in separate topics created by other users on Help desk, about specific issues

Track recording and waypoints
nice new feature, it works inside locus, but in exported kml/kmz the photo is missing :(

Sometime i get this popup while opening locus, although i haven´t changed anything in directory. After confirmation locus work well
(http://s28.postimg.org/cn2y3zuyx/Verzeichniss.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/cn2y3zuyx/)

Why are settings sometime changed after update to a new version :o ??
this time "settings/geocache/automatic waypoint loading" was changed to "enable" i have standart "disable"

sorry for asking again old open points:

7. scale photo - no improvement, same behavior ???
in V2.19 it worked well :D

no answer, no change?  :-[

If i open a Cache, the minimap is not visible, i do not know it is intended. For me it will be better/more logical, to start on top of the page
no answer, no change? :-[
Quote
partly solved, 5 logs ok :)
if i set 10 logs only 5 logs are loaded furthermore
after playing a while i have to say it works ;) but not as from me expected :P
For example: in  PQ´s always 5 last logs are implemented, so e.g. the oldest of the selected cache has date "1.3.2014"
in the meantime 3 new log are written and so after update i see 8 logs althought my setting is "25"
I set it to 25 logs in hope to get more information from older logs, but no log with date before 1.3.2014 is loaded

I told you few day ago.
Why we need the "point on minimap" preview ? 1/5 of my screen is used for what i don't need.
yes! it looks nice - but for...?
I prefer a  "one tap = show me edit screen" - as i wrote.
Look at edit screen - all data viewable - and editable

http://help.locusmap.eu/responses/opening-time-of-geocache-listing-in-2200

In opencaching logs, when I tap show user profile it show me geocaching.com.
Is there a way, to generate link to user profile also in OpenCaching? Because as I see, you need some users ID which is probably not in log itself. Like here http://www.opencaching.cz/viewprofile.php?userid=10346

Smile icons in logs are too big.

Hallo, I have just upgraded to Locus 2.20.0 too.
I think it is too soon to evaluate the new waypoint handling. However, I use Locus mainly for geocaching and what I really like even now is the fact that there is one click less to reach the cache details :-)
Once you have decided to rebuild this I dare to have an additional wish:
When geocaching, the most frequent activity is definitely starting/stopping guiding to a geocache displayed on the map. Is there a way to spare one more click to start guiding ? I know - when I open the geocache waypoint, it is right down in the menu. However, when walking, this is rather clumsy.
Ideas which come to my mind:
- Either a new waypoint-related context menu: Could a long touch on a wpt in the map be used ? But this idea is not too good when there are more wpts displayed near to one another.
- Or an extra direct button for guiding in the wpt window. But where ? And why should this particular button be preferred when it is highly demanded by geocachers but used seldom by the others ? Could there be a customizable button/toolbar for an instant access to a wpt-related function (e.g. guiding, compass, navigation, street view  ...) in the wpt dialog ?

I'm trying new version and can't quite confirm the overall slowdown against previous versions. Using only 2 core phone and everything is more or less as fast as before. However the new points screen has the small noticeable delay (Working...). I reported this already with test version. I'm aware new point screen holds more controls and needs more resources to load etc. but I see here a place for improving (work with more waypoints should be as smooth as possible). Anyway nice work and thanks for all new features.

@balloni: impressions are nice :)

- screen at start - weird, should not be visible if there are no changes of course. Anyway just from screenshot, I'm unable why this happen. Have to wait till something like this happen to me also

- changed settings - there are two possibilities. Bug in Android or accident with your fingers. Locus itself do not change these settings, trust me. So I more think that during playing in settings, you changed this checkbox by accident

- scale photo - I still have no solution. Because previous versions which worked for you, caused a lot troubles on more other devices. Current solution works for them, but do not work for you and I see no logic between it for now. So I have to with Peter test it and create some universal solution.

sorry, don't understand

- minimap - yes it's indent. In case of caches, tab is scrolled to see cache details as first

- logs: sorry, also do not understand. I do not know from where you load your cache with logs, but if in PocketQuery or over Geoaching4Locus is available just five logs, Locus cannot display more. Number do not say how much logs will be visible. As you may see in description, it limits logs to max amount, thanks all.

@gynta:
It looks nice, it's main point. It should be also usable if you check some points for example after searching etc. But major reason is nice look. But maps is not major slowdown of this screen. It took around 100ms. Almost half a second took construction of whole screen.

And "Edit in screen" - yes, it's my final decision. Nor you or joeloc may convince me, sorry. I'm sometimes checking some apps from Google as I wrote above and "Contacts" are very inspiring in many details, so I created system same as is there.

Screen where you edit track is also planned to rewrite in same way as this point screen and expect, that in the end, "Delete" button will be hidden in same menu as "Cancel" in this point screen.
Please rethink this decision. You yourself wrote that you like things to be obvious. For me it was not at all obvious where to find the delete button for the waypoint and i think i am not the only one. Why would i have the save button at the top, but i have to click on the menu button to find the delete button? And it also looks a bit strange to have just one option when clicking on the menu. To me the bin symbol at the top makes much more sense.
How about a popup windows asking wether you want to save or delete the track/waypoint when you hit the back button?

I agree with Celda that a quicker way to use the guidance-to-point function for geocaches would be great, as it´s 3 clicks at the moment: clicking on the cache (waiting for it to open), clicking the guidance button at the bottom and then another click to activate the guidance.
Especially when doing bigger rounds of traditioncal caches a one-click option without having to open the cache description would be great.

loading tiles from Personal mapsets (sqlite) seems quite slower and sometimes you must zoom in and out and move around, then wait, then zoom/move, etc., until the map appears. I think 2.20 has affected the map speed to slow it. I am sorry to say this  because Locus is so wonderful!

@čelda: as szebenyib wrote - check and comment post on Help Desk. it's good to have one idea on one place. Thanks

@BuckyKid: thanks, appreciate it

@eldron: did you tried contacts app in your device? Hope you have the same as me :). Anyway how often you need "Cancel" button and how often "Save"? I think, that at least 80% of your taps are on Save and not Cancel, maybe more. So why is this a problem, mainly when you know that cancel is in menu? It's even more useful, that you cannot tap on cancel directly. Thanks to this, there is no need for confirmation of this "Cancel" action and all is a lot faster and I hope also more user friendly.

@szebenyib: thanks for posted topic, perfect!

@balloni: and all interested in "Images" tab - http://help.locusmap.eu/responses/spoiler_size#comment-9537

About changed settings - it's really weird. I can at least tell you for sure, that Locus do not do nothing like this.

Selected name - ah finally I understand, sorry I missed this screenshot before. I'll fix it, thanks.

Photos in export of track waypoints - bug, thanks

@Bob Denny: are you sure, there were no change like you moved map from internal memory to card, changed SD card or something like this? Speed of other maps remain same (vector maps for example)?

I updated my SG SIII to version 2.20 pro last night, first thing I noticed was I lost access to all my cache databases. But a phone reboot brought them back.
Today whilst on a route around a reservoir I noticed something strange. When guiding , if I moved my map away from the current position and then pressed the   " Show current location"  button the following happened.
1.The screen would flash to a map view I didn't recognise. But it was so quick to get a bearing on.
2. The screen filled with the caches visible at the zoom level I had previous selected and a bearing line.But with no map features and a cross hatch background.
 3. The screen would flash and everything would be as expected.

The whole thing was over in 2-3 seconds

I have found another display bug that occurs in the point screen of points created whilst recording a track. Some of the text is missing in portrait mode, in landscape i can see it all. See attached screenshot.
I think in future i will use this feature more often, as it now allows to easily attach pictures to points on a track. Will the pictures also show if i export the tracks and look at them on the computer? And is it possible to change the folder in which those pictures are stored? They just end up in the normal camera folder, which is not very practical.
How comes that it takes so long to open those attached pictures? I know i don´t have a high end phone, but 5-8 seconds to open a picture is way too much.
The new version is great, but even though i have only used it a little bit to check out the new features, it has already crashed 3 times. Whereas before i hardly ever experienced any crashes within locus. If this keeps happening i´ll pay more attention as to what i was doing when the crash happened and send the error protocoll.

@gynta: thanks

@eldron: thanks. Problem with track details have to be in Locus quite long. Anyway this whole screen (generated description) change during next few months, so please wait a while. I won't fix this issue now due to planned changes.

Picture took with Locus should be stored in Locus/data/media . And since next version, photos attached to waypoints created as a part of track recording, should be exported together with track.

Why they open so slow? Do not know. I expect that when you tap on any attached image in Locus, it then opens image in any external image viewer, so it is not a problem in Locus

3 crashes - sorry :/. You are on Android 2.X? In current locus are some problems with memory and also this new screen is more memory intensive then previous versions. I'll try to improve it to next version. Otherwise if you are on A 4.X, I should use log with crash - http://support.locusmap.eu/hc/en-us/articles/200014832-How-to-create-debug-log

@balloni : ah icons, I set them on smaller size, but list resize them back :). Because menu button is removed now (in every line on right side), I think that icons may remain ;)

texts: I do not have control over these texts, weird they are black. Sorry, do not know how to fix this, because this context menu is created automatically by Android

keyboard: it's neverending problems. Don't understand why handling of keyboard from developer point of view is so complicated. I'll look at it. And last - don't you have enabled "Automatic export" for track recording function?

Ok, I´ll just wait until it´s fixed. It´s not very important, as i can see the whole text in landscape mode.
Picture took with Locus should be stored in Locus/data/media . And since next version, photos attached to waypoints created as a part of track recording, should be exported together with track.
Why they open so slow? Do not know. I expect that when you tap on any attached image in Locus, it then opens image in any external image viewer, so it is not a problem in Locus
You are right, the pictures are stored in Locus/data/media, but ALSO in the DCIM/camera folder. So i guess locus just copies them. Would it be possible to change that so locus deletes the copy in the Camera folder?
I´ll have a look why it takes so long to open them, but it´s only that slow when i open them from within locus.

Yes i am using Android 2.3.6, as the android 4.x version available for my phone is not very stable. So it would be great if the memory problems could be fixed, as I am surely not the only one using android 2.x and locus ;-)

Keep up the great work!!

It's really weird with your photos. Locus just request "Hey camera app, take a photo and store it to Locus/data/media/photo directory". Thanks all!! If you have copy of this photo in different directory also, it's a problem of camera app, not a Locus. So I suggest to check another app. Opening is weird as well.

Fortunately for me, only just around 10% of Locus users remain on older 2.X Androids. I think more and more, to create perfect working version of Locus and then drop support for 2.X devices. Maybe at the end of the year, we will see. Anyway I'll try to fix it to tomorrow.

Rebooting the phone has solved the issue with opening pictures from within locus. Maybe it was a memory problem.
Why i end up with two copies of the pictures i don´t know, but i can live with that.
Guess i´ll have to eventually upgrade to android 4.x then... maybe by the end of the year there will be a stable version available for my phone.

It happened 3-4 times, but since yesterday I have tried to recreate it, but can't.
Hopefully on Saturday I will be in the same area I was yesterday and I can test it again.
It may be a problem with the Downloaded sqlitedb map I was using. Though that map I used on Tuesday and the problem wasn't present then.

When new point is created from a long tap of the map > tap address window > add new point button at bottom, folder's icon is not assigned as point's icon. This behavior has been introduced since 2.20.0.
In case new point is directory created by 'add new point', folder's icon is assigned as point's icon.
Are these an intent?

@CaptKaos2:when you find any issue with specific map, or you will be able to simulate it, let me know, we should do something with it.

@gynta
edit coordinates - Locus remember last used settings. So it do not depend on your settings, but on type you used last time.

coordinates - it depend. I look on it more from usage point of view. Text with coordinates is much bigger and a new user by our test more often taps on coordinates then on button on right side. Maybe it's just a problem with icon which looks for you like "pick new location"?

black map - is this happen to you also on real device? Because I do not saw something like this before. So if only VM, I'll ignore it for now

long-click on quick map switch is interesting. I cannot remember if there were any special action in history. Probably not right? Then why is there this symbol? Hmm, I'll remove it, thanks :)

@ta-ka: you are probably right. It because long click now creates different "search" icon. I'll check it

There is an issue on icon change operation to multiple points at once then export those points to gpx file. Icons are visually changed on display however exported gpx file contains icon name before changing.  Could you confirm and fix that?

How to confirm:
1. create a work folder and create some points in it assigning icons
2. go to the work folder by locus data manager and check the points
    then change icons by tool button at bottom right > change icons
3. export points to gpx 1.1 and open the gpx file by editor

If icons are changed one by one, this issue doesn't happen.

The recent update seems to have broken the geocaching logs, at least on some devices. Only the first line of a log is shown, then some dots (...) as ommittance, and the last line of the log.

I'm using the Defy+ with Android 2.3, maybe that's again the problem, see:

@ta-ka: thanks, problem with icons seems to be there for very very long time. I did a quick fix, but it will require more work in future as there is currently big danger it won't work correctly on other places.

I was also playing with icon of point after long-click and this is nice example of feature that looks very simple on first sight, but it's very complex and quite hard to solve now. So I'll have to look on it more carefully later

I think the problem was my doing. :-[
I have a series of downloaded Bing Ord Survey Maps covering the whole of the SW UK. I had selected the one corresponding to my home location prior to going out. But when I arrived on the Moors , (on a different map), as I have Auto-load maps of the same type selected in the Maps-advanced settings, the visible map was for the area.  But as the home map was still the selected map, on pressing the show current location button it would jump to the home map center prior to going to the GPS location. The reason it had only happened a few times was that  I switched to a Vector map to see if it did the same,which it didn't. But on switching back I had selected the right map.
I have just tried it in reverse on my phone to prove it, and yes it behaves the same.

Sorry for my stupidity  :)

Actually this is supported when you request the altitude for a point. But it doesn't seem to work correctly for me either. The downloaded data seems to be from a different region:
Point added at map center, filled altitude with "download data". Result was the altitude data on the left side of the screen.

Yes i am using Android 2.3.6, as the android 4.x version available for my phone is not very stable. So it would be great if the memory problems could be fixed, as I am surely not the only one using android 2.x and locus ;-)
Do you have root? If so, in /system/build.prop take a look at dalvik.vm.heapsize. Increasing it from 24m to 32m eliminated memory issues in Locus for me. (cm7 with 512m total mem)

@atomicdryad 
I have got root access to my phone, but I don´t really like to play with settings when I am not sure what exactly they do. It´s no good for me if the setting increases Locus´stability and decreases stability elsewhere.
Also, until now Locus was working perfectly well, so I´ll wait and see if the next releases will increase stability again.
It´s not a big issue anyway, as I always keep a copy of the last version of locus before installing an update, so I can downgrade if there are problems with the new version.
But thanks for the hint anyway!

@ Menion
Yesterday I was playing around with the new feature of adding points whilst recording a track and attaching pictures to the points. I love the feature, the only downside for me is that it takes a lot of clicks to attach a photo:
Waypoint Button->Attachment Tab->"+"->Take a Picture
Do you think it would be possible to reduce this a bit? My ideas would be:
Add a new button to the track recording bar (the one at the bottom with the stop, pause, add waypoint and settings buttons) that takes you straight to the camera and creates a waypoint after you have taken the picture. So basically a "add picture waypoint" button. Maybe that button could be switched on / off in the settings.
Like this it would be a one-click experience to create a picture waypoint, which i am sure will be useful for many people.
I know that also other files (audio, video) could be attached, but i am guessing that pictures would be the most commonly used.
Another idea, to at least save out on one click - In the attachment tab, instead of having to click the "+", the options ( attach Picture, Video etc.) could also be displayed in the tab itself (where it now says "no attachments available, press + to add"). Once you have added an attachment you would then have to use the "+" to add more, but at least for the first attachment this would save a click.

@eldron et al., there will be a point at which @menion will need to drop support for ancient versions of Android OS. There are just too many good things that can be done with supported features and stability improvements in the later OS versions. Including code to make things work in old environments reduces the speed and stability (presence of multiple ways to do the same thing, some ugly hacks to simulate the "real thing" in newer version).

I am sure he will go out and drink some beer when he can remove the junk needed for Android 2.2  ;D

@Bob
l do agree with you and I would be the first to upgrade to Android 4.x if there was a stable version available for my phone.
But at the moment locus still supports Android 2.x so it should also work well on that version.
I can fully understand though, if menion decides to drop support for old android versions at some point. But i think the right way to do so is to have a good and bugfree version for android 2.x and leave that in the play store, but without support and further upgrades and concentrate on the version for Android 4 and higher.
Which is pretty much what menion wrote in some earlier post in this thread.

I'm sending two issue reports and one request. Thanks in advance.

1) Export to kmz always overwrite existing file even if Settings > Miscellaneous > Overwrite data is unchecked.

2) Locus crashes after 'Take a video'. I confirmed it on GNote2 and GTab7. On HTC-J, Locus didn't crash but the video didn't appear as an attachment.

3) The texts 'Distance to start point' and 'Distance to end point' are shared in the different context. One is for track sorting by distance and the other is for trackpoint/waypoint screen. There seems no problem in English, but in Japanese translation, it currently gives strange meaning and I want to improve it. May I ask to introduce 'Sort by dist. to start/end' for track sorting and leave 'Distance from start/to end point' for trackpoint/waypoint screen?

@Menion
Just downloaded 2.20.1.1 after skipping 2.20.1 and i must say - whatever you did, the new point screen now loads super quick again, no more waiting time.
So I just want to thank you for your constant improvement of locus.
When i look at companies like microsoft, with their multi billion dollar budget, and they still have bugs that have been known for years (!!!) in their mainstream software like Word or Outlook it always impresses me how you sometimes fix bugs within hours of being reported.
Keep up the good work!!

New version...
Very good idea the option to hide the minimap.
That was the first step ;)

ok, why i have to read the POIname twice?
(http://s29.postimg.org/k5gwgx1oj/twice.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/k5gwgx1oj/)


If you remove now the second name bar, we have another view to important POI info line

@gynta
the second name bar makes sense, when the name of the point is quite long - which is not unusual with geocaches.
The top bar in the geocaching point screen has some additional symbols (for hint and logging) and has therefore got less space for the name of the POI. On my phone it´s a difference of about 15 letters.
Also, the second bar displays the cache symbol (Tradi, Multi, mystery etc.). So from a geocacher´s point of view the second bar does make sense ;-)

The "Save Actual Part" function of a currently recorded track does not work as expected. I would think it should remember the name I enter there for subsequent calls and also for when I finally finish the track recording. It should also overwrite the track in the database when the name matches.

Right now, when I manually enter the same name every time I use "save actual part", I get duplicate entries with equal names in the database. Thats not good.

When the name remembering is fixed, we could think of an "Auto Save and Export Actual Part every XX minutes" option in that window. This would allow us to always keep a current GPX track of the currently recorded track in the export directory. We could use that with further scripting to automatically geolocate pictures on the fly, update trip web sites while the trip is happening, etcpp.

Greetings from California...

Btw... thanks A LOT for making the point screen instantaneous again! I was about going to suggest to render the mini map in a separate thread, but apparently you were quicker :-).

You probably dont always realize that when testing stuff in the comfort of your development couch. But every single place where Locus "delays" the user interface turns into a major nuisance and multiplies a hundredfold when conditions are worse. Think about moving bicycles, think about being in a snow storm, think about being in blinding sunlight with sunglasses, think about sweating your ass off in a dry desert, think about being in serious battery preserving mode. Even delaying by just a tenth of a second is too much already. It always makes you wonder if Locus recognized the tap, if you need to tap again, if you missed the button, if something else is wrong, etcpp.

A snappy and responsive UI in each and every case adds SO MUCH to the usability and to the "feeling" of Locus that it cannot be underestimated. On the other hand... "fade to black" thingies and "work in progress..." views are the worst thing ever.

Just my two cents... but I know I am kind of "extreme"... :)

Well if that´s the case, then Locus is the best "poor" GC tool I have ever seen ;-)
It´s a big notch above all other Geocaching apps I have ever tried.
I might be wrong, but I would guess that a big part of the Locus userbase are geocachers, so maybe some development in that directed is justified ;-)

So seems that really almost everything is fixed :) Thanks all for help with testing!!

Anyway ...

@balloni:
- problem with refresh - we discuss this before this version. It's a problem in Locus API and till I fix it, you will always have this problem if both, Locus Free and Locus Pro exists on one device

- scale photo, we work on it

- selection & keyboard: hard work. We will see in next version. Same with tap on geocache waypoint

@eldron: thanks :). Speed of Point screen is almost on max. As joeloc wrote, and I agree, that every longer delay descrease usability and good feeling from using every app. Unfortunately I'm worried that I'm consumed all possibilities how to speed screen up. For now.

@gynta: to make name of points more important, also a basic points will now have next to name icon ;). And by our poll around year ago, there were around 50 % of people using Locus also for geocaching, so even if I'm not biggest fan, I have no choice ;)

@Bob Denny: you're welcome ;)

@joeloc: this is currently how "Save part of track" work. Locus do not check tracks on duplicities in same way as for points. So I think, it's more like request for improvements, but I personally do not think, that it's needed. There is more features missing around track recording, so I may only suggest Help Desk for now

gynta's right :). Every Locus version overwrite this file on exit. So Locus Pro do not know these parameters, so they are lost once you stop Pro version

EDIT: I forget one thing - anyone from SK has Android with 4.1.1. Seems that Locus crash a lot on A 4.1.1 only due to some problems in Android. Usually when you try to display certain (I do not know which) pages. So if anyone with this android has some crashes, please write me on which pages, so I can fix it. Thanks

Hi, menion.

Could you please confirm the following?

Google Places Search -> import search result -> open point screen -> tap 'Load more information' -> back button.
Then, a question pop-up window appears and it asks whether to overwrite or to ignore(duplicate) the point.

I think that the point should be simply saved without question.

hmm to be true, there is no big difference :). Some months ago, I was publishing new version of Locus almost every week. This has changed so now it's usually once per month bigger version with more changes. And then usually one or in worst case two (like now) updates within one or two weeks, that fix most problems. So I want to release probably tomorrow one more update that will mainly fix some existing problems.

Hi, menion.

Please confirm two things below.

1) The default setting of the Track recording > Automatic export is None(do not export).
    However, on new installation of Locus, the text '(GPX)' is wrongly shown in front of the description.

2) While viewing online map, Miscellaneous > Clear temporary data > Cache of online maps also clears
    current map selection and brings Blank Light map. Locus should not forget current map selection.

But I like it :-) I mean it is useful as a feedback that I have tapped on a point and it will open.
Maybe there are other ways to do this, but on slower machines it is useful. I definitely recall that sometimes I have been wondering if I had touched the Poi to open because it opened slowly and I didn't see this.

But all device have other then 4.1.1 and on emulators/simulator I wasn't able to get this problem. Don't you remember if you used for example any special characters as names of folders or points?

Like balloni55 I have a problem with Automatic waypoint loading.
If I have no caches selected and make a selection in the Automatic waypoint loading in the Geocaching settings, when I select  caches the waypoints are shown.
Deselect all selections in  Automatic waypoint loading in the Geocaching settings , and the waypoints are still displayed. Even a restart doesn't hide them.
The only way to hide them is to deselect all caches and reselect again.
It is similar if I have caches selected and choose to show waypoints. The only way to display them is deselecting caches and reselecting them again.

Edit:-
One thing I forgot to mention, the GC Offlinizer now scales any images to fit the window. Happy with that. :)

guys sorry, but I do not understand both of you.

Did you know this feature before? You may try it in existing last public Pro version. It do only single task - when you want to display new cache, it loads all waypoints of this cache. Nothing more. It do not load waypoints for already visible caches or do not hide waypoints if you uncheck this settings. It really just load them when you load a cache on map, nothing more.

And settings in test version, just allow to choose which waypoints will be loaded.

Locus crashes after 'Take a video'. I confirmed it on GNote2 and GTab7.
On HTC-J, Locus didn't crash but the video didn't appear as an attachment.

This issue was solved on samsung devices about a week ago. Thank you.
But... on HTC device, the issue is not solved yet. I use stock camera.

I found that the video is stored as /sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA/VIDEO[num].mp4 instead of /sdcard/Locus/data/media/video/_[number].mp4. This may be the reason why the video doesn't appear as an attachment of the point.

I also found that the photo taken from Locus is always stored in two folders. One is /sdcard/DCIM/100MEDIA/IMAG[num].jpg and the other is /sdcard/Locus/data/media/photo/_[number].jpg. The later one is attached to the point.

EDIT:
I noticed an another thing.
On samsumg devices, video taken from Locus has 'avi' file extension. But stock video player says the file type is video/mp4.

@balloni: images are not preloaded. So they are loaded when needed. Images in logs should be stored in Locus/cache/images directory and images in "Images" tab are cached automatically by web browser in internal memory (where is limit for cache around 10MB)

And really no need to sorry about waypoint. It's my problem that explanation is not clear!

@ta-ka: thanks. I received one report on bugsense, but it will need some more testing later. Anyway what application are you using for a taking photo/video? I'm on 99% sure, that duplicates are problem of this app, not Locus. Because Locus only say to system "Call app that store image/video to this X file", and that's all. When this task is done, system call back to Locus "OK, done" in case you took a photo or "Sorry canceled" if you canceled it.

Thanks for the explanation. I always use the default camera app.
Meanwhile I'll try another camera app from Play store.

P.S.  please have a look at my previous post about 'avi' and 'mp4' extension of the video.

Please confirm two things about Google Places Search.

1) "Google Places Search > search > More > More" sometimes gives "No search results". It's not 100% reproducible but it happens.

2) The pop-up message "Point is not stored in the database" is shown twice.
      - Google Places Search > search > Select all > (x) button at top-right > 'Load more information'
      - then 'back' button
    I think the pop-up message is even confusing and may be unnecessary.

if a cache has a WP "parking area" display it automatic if this option is selected.
So the geocacher is able to guide/navigate direct to the parkingplace 8)

Yet before releasing public version...a minor bug in waypoint screen (editing). Pressing back button saves changes in text fields, but discards icon change. From this it's not clear if back behaves as OK or cancel. I still would suggest using back button as cancel. Anybody other give vote for this?

Edit, oh no back really behaves as Save, new icon shows on the waypoint screen, but doing edit again, old icon is used, ie. edit dialog doesnot seem to receive data from once updated waypint screen.

And Edit2: waypoint editing screen is still not handled after sliding out virtual keyboard (scroll range won't cover top of the dialog)

go to folder with caches, select these you want to update and in bottom right button is "Update caches". You may update all at once, this new system should handle it correctly (up to 6000/day)

Since 03.04.2014 the free test versions do not longer make a automatic backup. I immediately update after you release a new test version so it could be Locus 2.20.1.3.

The pro makes these update periodical

Hi Menion,
there must be a little bug:
Once the automatic backup is running then it is repeated every day.
But if I install a new update of Locus /free/test/pro then the backup is stopped, the date for the next backup is updated anyway.

My solution so far: deactivate and reactivate the repetition.

I noticed this with the test versions, now the pro was updated and showed the same behavior.

Very small issue with hiding online maps from list of map providers.
After going through complete list with checking and unchecking some providers, i thought the two buttons on top right mean "save" (check-button) and "cancel" (cross-button). But instead they mean "un-/check all" (check-button) and "save and go back" (cross-button). See screenshot.

And "Edit in screen" - yes, it's my final decision. Nor you or joeloc may convince me, sorry. I'm sometimes checking some apps from Google as I wrote above and "Contacts" are very inspiring in many details, so I created system same as is there.

Sometimes I wonder what you smoke when you make these "final decisions". Must be good stuff indeed, I want some :). So I guess we are stuck forever with this weirdo mixed and messed up point screen now? Some parts are directly editable (eg coordinates) and other parts (name, category) go through an extra edit mode?! Congratulations on another major gui blunder...  :/.

I suppose your way of "fixing" this might then be making the coordinates non-editable too? What is an extra tap and an extra window after all... users have all the time in the world when using Locus and they love nothing more than to navigate through its numerous layers.

Will the track screen become just as horrid? Any ideas yet on what fields will be directly editable and what fields will need  jumping through an extra hoop?

Sorry for being harsh again... but how you can even remotely consider this to be a "logical" user interface is totally beyond me.

Funny, I should ask the same :)

Anyway from what you wrote, seems that your only problem are editable coordinates. If so, then I think that screen is perfect.

Whole screen is created in exactly same way as default application from Google - Contacts. I like this system and for me it seems to be user friendly. After some user-testing we had, no one had any serious problems with this, so we consider it as - final solution.

And track screen will be same horrid, yes :)

Hello menion,

I think you're wrong with the kind of editable coordinates. For my humble opinion it should be the other way around.
If you press the area with numbers you will change numbers, if you press the crosshair sign you will do more specific things like coordinates by the middle of the screen, by map, whatever you want.

Other possibilitys to edit something are OK.

KaHeMu

- completely new settings for track record based on profiles (removed old)
Settings -> Track recording -> Add more
- It's not possible to cancel - profile was added immediately. its boring to remove
- please add walk cycle car as default profiles - and cycle as default setting - instead of "my profile"

good idea!

OK, I agree the track recording looks nice.

You can leave it as it is, when you implement clickable buttons in dashboard editor to target your own Locus API to handle track recording.

@KaHeMu: not completely. Just this feature. It's needed before I start work on new screen for tracks. Track recording is next to searching most used function and I personally had sometimes problems to handle it on bike etc (too small buttons hidden at bottom), so we decided to create whole screen that offers more possibilities. This is just a first version ...

@Gynta, Matthias: I though about some always visible small button on left side when track record is enabled, or maybe control in notification bar of your device, and yes - clickable buttons to dashboard, agree

"Add more" button - is "Cancel" really needed? How often you tap on it by accident when you know how it works?

Btw. is system of profiles clear for you?

defaults - no worry. They'll be there. I just have to re-thing, what are really best settings as defaults. Same with content of track record panel. Hope you noticed that content (panels) may change by tap on it :).

I also want to limit number of profiles for a Free version, probably just on 2, so I'll need just two defaults

I did not find out if the new track record panel auto-hides after starting a new track. If not it should to avoid another tap on backup arrow.
I want to see only the map after starting.

Default profiles: I like the ones that are there in the current version. (cycling, walking)

Limit in free: agree, even one should do.

Panel really is nice, but didn't test it thoroughly yet.

Btw. Is it an android or a Locus limitation to allow only the system language in Locus? I wanted to try a different language but I did not want to change my phone's language.

After i start a track an unneeded window apeares ! if i click the record button i want to start recording, nothing else.
What is the advantage of a "count down" track-startbutton?
After i have started a track this needless window should disapeare automaticly.
Where can i see the status of trackrecording? recording or paused
in my opinion the "orange button" have to change like in all audio/video-players, doublestroke/triangle
if a doublestroke is displayed device is recording
if a triangle is displayed recording is paused

EDIT:
and also in mapview the pencil in the topline should change (colour/blink) if recording is paused.

I really like the new track record screen - all the information you need at one glance and in big letters!
But i do agree with the others - it would be great to see if a track is being recorded or paused without having to check in the track record screen.
Personally I would even prefer to be able to pause/continue track recording from the main screen with just one click.
And thanks for swapping the coordinate buttons back to how they were - makes much more sence like that!
Title: Re: [APP] - version 2.20.X+ (updated 8.4.2014)
Post by: szebenyib on April 19, 2014, 18:13:26
Thinking further
Button like now (blackish) - no rec
Button reddish - recording
Button reddish and blinking - recording paused.

A constant color does not bother. If it blinks it is a bit irritating, but it comes handy. Having paused a recording, blinking would warn you to stop it finally or resume it.

I am not convinced that one button start stop is of advantage, because it can be tapped by mistake ending a recording that I did not want. But I can be convinced :-)

I went cycling and hiking today with Locus 2.20.2.1. It was actual field test of the new track record screen. It works well and I like it. :)

I noticed that:
- It's not possible to change recording profile on the fly while track recording.

- I opened the track recording panel a lot of times to see the dash board info. So I want the track record button on the left side of the screen at least while recording, as similar as guide button or quick map switch.

- Count down voice from 9 to 1 was not pronounced in Japanese with google text-to-speech, while more than 10 and 'start' were pronounced. It might be a problem of google text-to-speech but not locus. Anyway it's strange.

Does track recording need a separate button for recording when it's active?
I have a button for that on the right panel, being always visible. Would it be possible to detect if it exists and then not display the rec button in the bottom left corner? The duplicate button just takes up space unnecessarily. (Even if it is nice :-) Locus is getting nicer and nicer)

So one by one since 19.4.

@tramp20: auto-hide option will be added to "Track record settings"

@szebenyib: language selection is not by default allowed. All app use language defined by system. In new version of Android, I not yet found a way how to hack it, so till then it won't be possible

@Bob Denny: thanks, appreciate it :)

@balloni, eldron, others: in latest test version, you should see small panel at bottom that indicate a state. I've also improve it yesterday after some suggestions from gynta, so you'll see in next version.

@ta-ka: change of track profile during recording added.

@berkley: you're welcome. Next version of Locus will already have new store. We do not yet have some public console for adding content from other people, but it's next task once, store will work.

@gynta, balloni: crash with "Add waypoint" from dashboard fixed

@gynta: missing answer - as I read, I answered bellow that it depends on geocachers. And no one complain about english names of waypoints :). So I take it as 'OK' ;)

So for me remain one question - visible "REC, PAUSED" button at bottom when recording is active. I can do mechanism, that this button won't be visible if "Track rec" button will be in permanently visible right panel or if recording buttons will be visible in dashboard, but will this be clear? Will be clear on first sight, that this button is not visible right because of this? I'm worried ... no

+1 for Balloni's solution. I would however change the colors:
Green - no recording
Red  - recording (it is always this way with household devices.)
Orange - paused.

This would be in sync with the colors of the dialog buttons.

@menion: having explicitly put a button on the right panel the user will know it is there (because he has put it there he is not a new user and knows that it is there) A changed color would be definitely noticeablebecause of this in my opinion.

Locus 2.20.2.3
Track export ( .gpx  .kmz) do not work  :( only a short twitch of the display after click on export

I noticed today the same with this version.
If I export a new made track with the pro version I receive the kmz on my PC as usual.
If I export (manually too) a track with this test version it is really exported to the DropBox server (I can see it in my export folder there and can download it manually) but it is not synced to my PC, so I did not receive this track.
I tried this on two smartphones with the same result.
The last version2.20.2.2 was ok because I made a track at 27.04.2014 which was correct exported.
These exported but not synced tracks are (after downloading manually) correct shown on Google Earth.

So I have no clue why they are not synced to my PC:-(

@ta-ka: change of track profile during recording added.
Thank you very much.  Now, may I ask two improvements?
  - highlight current profile with red text as same as that in settings screen
  - show pop-up message "Profile '%s' set" after profile change as same as previous track recording system
It makes easy to know current profile and changed profile during track recording.

EDIT: one more thing.
If locus can create a launch shortcut with automatic start of track recording on android's home screen, it is possible to select:
  - tapping app icon -> launch locus normally
  - tapping shortcut -> launch locus with starting track recording
  - if track recording is already running, tapping app icon or shortcut just brings locus to foreground
How about this idea?

I think I found the cause: you changed the naming format of the exported tracks :-(

1. The pro and the older test versions export this file name        2014-05-01_09-00-00 Grainbach (notice the blank) as
                                                                                            2014-05-01_09-00-00_Grainbach.kmz to DropBox.

2. The newest test version exports this file without a change as 2014-05-01_09:00:00 Grainbach.kmz.
    But if I download manually this file from Dropbox I get           2014-05-01_09_00_00 Grainbach.kmz

3. Both files are on Dropbox.com in the locus/export folder.

4. But only the file format                                                       2014-05-01_09-00-00_Grainbach.kmz is synced to my PC.

I am using Dropbox 2.6.31

Hello, I'm not sure if this wasn't already reported but computing navigation (MapQuest) in test version 2.20.2.3 is almost or maybe completely not functional. Progress dialog appears only for short while, then returns back to Navigate to... dialog (won't close). Tried more times and no time I was success to get navigation route. For comparison I let compute same route in latest public build 2.20.2 and got route right away on 1st attempt, so this must be problem of latest beta (betas). Used standard 3G network for this.

Again, all tracks are exported to Dropbox.com, but not all to the PC.

All files in my hardcopy from Dropbox.com with a underline between date/time and the name are synced, the other not.

Edit
One other thing I noticed is the Settings button under Various heading is a global setting  (it's in the Pro version since a few versions back) and I can not see a use on an individual cache. But that is just my opinion, others may think differently.

Hello menion,
first impression of 2.20.2.4 ;)
- new GC-panel looks nice :)
 i do not need  "webside" and i miss the "Hintbutton" in toppanel ::) one more klick !

- Export work (#170 and #204)
 ö is changed to o, ü to u..., is it possilble to change it as used in german language, ä=ae, ö=oe, ü=ue??

- if i reimport a track with pois, locus split track and pois and store the track in data-track and the  pois in data-poi :(

- i have recorded a track and add a POI (red arrow) while driving on i attached a stored photo to this POI and saved it later (blue arrow). At this moment the trackline jump back to the POI-koords and then immediately to my current possition.

I agree with balloni55, geocache right panel is OK, but to insert there a "hint" button and "Log visit" button is not a good idea. First thing: there is one more tap to get to hint information or Log visit action.
Second: menu button is far far away from my thumb, and with large phone screen there is not easy to operate one hand (right).
Third: "hardware" menu button is not active.
I strong vote to bring back mentioned buttons to its old place.

We discuss a lot feedback from you (with Peter and Hanka), and do not agree at all with all what you write.

1. Problem of missing 'hint' button

In many cases I prefered (past time) less clicks (faster access) over usability and clean design. In this case I cannot agree. Everyone wants fast access to different features. Anyway all may be placed into nice side menu which is really fast to access from all tabs and where all core data are at once place. I was testing it in the field on around 15 caches and my experience was a lot better then with previous top menu. Access side menu by slide from side is really fast in the field during move and do it everytime I need to read hint or do something with a case, seems to be no problem. For me. I'm anyway still open for strong arguments against this.

2. Website button

It isn't 100% clear that tap on GC Code opens web side. Also you have to move to main tab. So I think it's not a big problem to have link in side menu.

Only change I did is move buttont that opens this side panel to top left corner where were before menu button. So on left side is again "Home" button to map screen. And robin thanks - hardware menu button is a good idea

@CaptKaos2: link to settings is to "Geocaching settings", which i think is usable mainly when you log a cache and you want's to change format or some other settings. And it's there since begin I think

@Balloni:
export texts - ah, oki, I'll try it :)
reimport of track - points are attached to track only in case, there is just one track.
problem with added point during record - thanks, I'll fix it.

"Everyone wants fast access to different features".
I agree, but there are more important and less important features during caching. In my opinion "hint" and "log visit" buttons are most important and should be placed in bottom buttons line on geocache screen instead of less important "map button". It would be perfect to decide myself which button (feature) should be placed on sidemenu and which on bottom buttons line. But I can imagine there is a much more work for you to make it configurable. I count on polling at least.

@Robin: understand. But this time, you'll not have it so easy :)

@balloni: no problem. This is something I have to think more about it. It's one of features that is not clear on first sight, so there will be probably need some additional settings. ( http://help.locusmap.eu/responses/import-gpx-file-containing-tracks-and-waypoints#comment-10240 )

And rename during IMPORT? may you please explain it a little bit?

@jusc: you use "Add new route & measure"? Then under "Tools" is checkbox "Compute area", that should enable visible value in top right corner and also colored area. This is what you miss?

Post by: eldron on May 09, 2014, 20:57:36
Now that there is no need to register with google+ I downloaded the latest version and did a little test run today.
First things first - i love the new track record screen and also the geocaching side menu. I think it would be useful to be able to open the side menu with the menu button too, as it seems to have no other function at the moment anyway.
I am afraid i agree with the others though - the hint button and log cache button are used very often when caching and i didn´t see anything wrong with having them at the top. Although i guess i could get used to having them in the side menu ;-)

Bugs/Issues i found:
New track record screen:
- The height profile chart "flickers" sometimes - the diagram disappears and reappears and the text ("distance") moves up. I tried to make a screenshot but never caught the right moment
- Some of the settings have no German translations yet, but i guess you are aware of that.
- Rearranging the displayed information: It´s a bit complicated to swap two fields. One example: i want to swap "speed" and "Altitude", both have already been assigned to a field. I click on the "speed" field and then select "altitude", but get the message "item altitude already exists". So i have to use an item that is not assigned as an extra step to be able to swap them.
- There is not enough space to display the german word for "speed" in the height profile diagram
- On the left hand side of the height diagram you have one height (e.g. 400m), but it would be useful to have at least two, otherwise you can´t tell how steep an incline really is (see screenshot).

- When clicking on a track that´s too low down on the screen, the menu opens but is cut off and some buttons can´t be reached (it´s not possible to scroll down either) (see second screenshot)

Feature requests:
- Could you make it possible to display only the height and not the speed in the track record/track diagram? I don´t need the speed (red) and it just makes it harder to read the height diagram.
- Can i somehow define different symbols for added points during track recording? e.g. have the photo symbol when taking a picture? I know i can choose it each time i create a point, but it would be great to assign a different symbol for each type of point (picture, audio,video).
- Using the dashboard editor i can get the "create point during track record" button back on the main screen - would it be possible to also add the "picture point" button in the dashboard editor so i can have that one back too?

Edit:.
In  Track record screen settings -> count of visible items the setting "12" doesn´t do anything, all the others work though.
Edit2:
Little inconsistency in the new geocaching screen - to add a waypoint you now have to open the side bar. To add an attachment you still have to use the + button at the top. I think that´s not very intuitive.

ok, i ll try it ;)
if i import/reimport a track i found no possibility to remame this file inside locus and so it is not easy to distinguish which is the original and which is the imported.

(http://s13.postimg.org/ssm7qajnn/Rename.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/ssm7qajnn/)
explanation: i prefere it more to use the reimported tracks with poi´s, the attached photos are displayed direct in  basic view of the poi and larger :) minimum 2 clicks less 8)

While playing with Test and Pro i found a different behavior:
if i go to Data/Tracks/any Subfolder and click" backbutton" in Test it open "POI tab" :(
different in Pro, it open as expected "Track tab" :D

Problem in Geocache module:
In the beta 2.20.2.4 if I use "update cache" in the logs screen, i will never see the actual new entries. I must close the screen to map and must reopen the cache to see the new entries...this must be fixed. In the regulary pro version i have not this problem.

@eldron: main discussion remains here. On G+ will be probably some discussion with people that do not use forum, but if you want discuss something in future about test versions, this is correct place.

@Stargaterunner: thanks for report. This is anyway known problem with using test versions that currently have no solution - more here http://help.locusmap.eu/responses/update-of-a-geocache-dont-display-new-waypoints

@gynta: thanks!
1) hidden menu - it already reported balloni if I remember correctly, but I have currently no idea how to fix it.

2) layout in notification settings - fixed

3) chart - added small padding to top, so fixed.

@balloni: I think that rename of file will not help here. Please check content of GPX file. I think that at start will be <name>xxx</name> parameter where is defined name of track visible after import.

problem is that this menu is generated by Android itself, not me. I only say content, but not how it looks and behave. In previous versions of Android library it worked correctly, but now it seems to do some troubles. When I'll have time later, I'll try to rewrite it by my own, but for now I think it's not a big problem

you see 7 items on dashboard, but dashboard may totally contain up to 12 items. So in list of available items are checked all already defined items in all 12 views (even if they are not visible).

If you set only 4 items to view and all since 5 to 12 will be hidden, then if I clear them, you loose it's settings and you will have to set them again if you display more then 4 items. If you understand :). So because of this, I keep settings of all 12 items and not only a visible.

Hi menion,
great job on the geocaching point screen - Nice to have my hint and log button back at the bottom and the right side slide in makes it easier to control it with your thumb (if you are right handed ;-) ).How about being able to open the slide-in menu with the hardware menu button too?
I can confirm the app crash when setting count of visible items to 12. When i first set it to 12 locus crashed whilst i was still in the settings menu. After restarting locus i clicked on "track record" but it didn´t open. I was able to continue using locus for ~15 seconds before it crashed. After setting it back to "10" I had no further crashes.

In the change log it says "added ability to define various base parameters for charts in dashboard" - where can i do so? I would like to deactivate the speed profile (red chart), as i don´t need it and it makes it harder to read the height profile (blue).

Also some of the points from my last post still apply:
Bugs/Issues i found:
New track record screen:
- Rearranging the displayed information: It´s a bit complicated to swap two fields. One example: i want to swap "speed" and "Altitude", both have already been assigned to a field. I click on the "speed" field and then select "altitude", but get the message "item altitude already exists". So i have to use an item that is not assigned as an extra step to be able to swap them. How about allowing to untick an item so that you can easily assign it to a different field?
- On the left hand side of the height diagram you have one height (e.g. 400m), but it would be useful to have at least two, otherwise you can´t tell how steep an incline really is (see screenshot).

Think that was a combination of record button - crash -  no finished record and restart..
but im not finished with testing yet - i will post here.

btw.
dashboard editor ignores "resize by top panel"
("resize by bottom panel" not testet)

Hi Menion.

In Locus 2.20.2.5, it requires 5 taps to change the recording profile while track recording is going on. I say it is too many. A very nice quick profile changer is already implemented at the bottom of the recording panel however it is available only before starting the track recording.
Could you please make it available also during track recording? I really want this function. Please think about it.

it's possible only for a chart in dashboard. Not in track record panel. Style of items in track record panel will be fixed, not configurable. So there is just currently need to setup some default values for two possible charts that may be placed to track record panel.

Anyway just a quick note to ta-ka: I'm 99% sure, that current solution is enough. Why you need change profile during a ride so often?

When I go for an outdoor activity, I usually start and stop track recording at home to record everything and the track is kept as a original data in locus. For example, track recording is started with 'car' profile and changed to 'foot' when arrived at the start of a mountain trail, then changed to 'car' again after hiking for return trip. Changing profile according to the moving speed gives better recording results. So, it is favorable if locus provide an easy way to do it during recording.

How did you record that video clip that you attached earlier in this thread? I found a little bug in Locus that is best shown in a video clip. Do I have to use an extra app for that?

In the edit screen of the quick new point, base line is not aligned well and it looks not nice.

'Point count' and 'Track width' in the recording profile, the shown values are zero for new installation.

added ability to choose if merge points with single track during import or not

(http://s21.postimg.org/3y4a4jp43/merge.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/3y4a4jp43/)
perhaps i missunderstand this function ???
while importing a track with including POI´s (merged) i am not able to "merge" anything else, if i uncheck the box i am able to split track and POI´s during import.
So for me it make more sense "split points and track" and change the logic :-\

@eldron: thanks, all done, fixed, improved, etc :)

@gynta:
- moving dashboard right after you show it fixed
- your location and POI's on top of chart should be also better now. I have added there always some small padding so there should be enough space now
- and "Dashboard charts" - don't understand. There is no possible description. These two chart items are there only to allow you to add two charts on screen at once (with possible different parameters)

@balloni:
- return from sub-track-folder fixed
- POI description - I found a bigger problem. When you write own desc for track point, it's lost during save and rewrote by track stats. So I fixed this, so track statisticks will be added to POI only if there will be no your own description. This is anyway not a final solution. I plan better, but for this I need new track screen, so later.
- wrong icon - ah thanks, it's old icon from previous left side panel, fixed
- and last "merge points to track" - I think you are not right. There do not exists something like file with merged points to track. There is just GPX/KML file, that contains some tracks and some points. There is no info they are merged. So by default, all these files has separate tracks and points. So Locus now offer possibility to merge them (which was previously always enabled)

@ta-ka: understand. But
1. I think that for most users this is not needed. And difference between 3 and 5 clicks rarely per day is really small
2. I prefer in this case less feature and add them later if needed

- problems in settings and 'Quick point' fixed, thanks

Post by: menion on May 14, 2014, 08:42:29
I think that benefits are two - one is that you can show/hide all points together with track. There is no need to enable track and a few points from any folder. They are just "attached". Also if you export and already computed track with navigation points, it's needed to import them "merged", because Locus needs to have these points directly "in" track.

Only disadvantage I see in previous "automatic" system, was fact, that it wasn't clear what Locus do and people that know what they import, expect points and one track, not just one track (and attached point), so this new checkbox give you this choice.

I'm not 100% sure that this "merging" is best solution. It's how I created it a few years ago and it still seems to work. Without this, there will be need to specify some separate folder for every track, that will contain points, or just handle them completely separate.

this panel for editing coordinates isn't "back" in correct word meaning. It's in Locus for a long time, but it's optional (over config file).

Anyway what is wrong with it? Maybe icon should be better (icon of 'Coordinates') and not this one.

If you need to insert coordinates directly, you may, as I wrote before, set in config that locus display always this panel (my screenshot).

And because I think that when you add new waypoint to cache, you need in 90% add point by coordinates, I enabled this panel for new waypoints by default.

And now my question - I don't understand what is wrong with this button :). Anyway I may change it to different (probably for icon - tap 'target' icon below > 'Coordinates')

Uf this new testing versions was hard one. More then a day with only optimizing. Hope you will feel small difference in speed. Vector maps on my device run almost about 20% faster on some zoom level. Generaly whole Locus should now use less CPU and also a little less memory. We will see if such changes do not cause any troubles.

And btw. those who want's experiment, try to display map with rotation and play with it (mainly finger zoom). And then try to change new 'DEV' parameter in config ;)

@szebenyib: you're welcome :). One day of work. This is anyway max I can do. Now most of time is no reading of data from map file, so now it's a problem of format and not a library itself.

@eldron: drag & drop here, as well as on other places, works only since A3.0. So if you use older 2.X version, then sorry, I have no solution for you.

In this case, you also miss draw & drop in major dashboard, quick add point, "Get location" screen and some other places. But I'm sure you won't stay with 2.X forewer

Having dev_enable_accelerated_map_rendering ON, rendering vector map is quite fast but don't notice rapidly increased speed. Maybe little. Under some condition while having this HW thingy ON zooming in or out the map only zooms the overlay while the map self remains intact (ie. no refresh). After opening points screen and back map redrawing is restored. This means there may be a hidden bug not rendering the map (or is bug in my GPU hardware).

Hi Menion, completely different problem, which is I guess easy to fix:
1. Select a point, let's say at 48N, 11W.
2. Touch the puzzle part
3. Touch > Map apps? (German Kartenanwenungen)
4. Touch Navigator (don't know if you have installed this app)
5. Navigator shows you the location 11N, 48E instead of 48N, 11W
This worked in older versions of either Locus or Navigator (I think Navigator has changed it's behaviour).
Could you fix that? Would be kind, because I think it's cumbersome to get it fixed from Navigator app team.

One more question: Why do I have to use 2. and 3.? One of them should be enough to get the list of Map apps. Or do you plan to add further menu items behind the puzzle part?

Thanks,
Tommi

hello Tommi,

with this you really have to go to "Navigator" developers. If I change order of this "geo" request, then it won't work on older version of their app and also when they fix it, on new versions. So it really make no sense to change correct behaviour of Locus. Hope you understand

Hello. I send something I've noticed.

'Point count' and 'Track width' in the recording profile, the shown values are zero for new installation.
- The problems are still there in Locus Test 2.20.2.6.
- Track width is shown with decimal number but only integer number is accepted to modify it. For example, '6' instead of '6.0'.
(http://s21.postimg.org/frzmj1vgz/track_recording.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/frzmj1vgz/)

- Because the last recording profile can not be removed, there is no way to bring back default profiles(Foot/Cycle/Car).

- Tab of the track recording panel appears at around the middle of left edge. It happens when software keyboard is opened (for example, search Address & Place) while track recording is working.
(http://s28.postimg.org/lzo8i4jex/recording_panel_tab.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/lzo8i4jex/)

- Icon is not shown properly in weather panel. I think the icon can be simply removed.

I did a longer field test today (5 hour caching tour) with the latest test version.
Absolutely love the new track record screen! So handy to have all the information about the current trip on one screen.
Also loved the fact that now the points created during track record have the right symbols (e.g. photo symbol for photo point).
I did have one problem with the points though: When creating a new point (during track record or normal waypoint), I used to be able to delete it by pressing the menu button and selecting delete. When i now press the menu button the screen darkens, but no menu opens. Is this again connected to me using Android 2.3.6? It worked fine in older versions.It´s just a bit annoying, as i can´t delete a Waypoint from within the point screen anymore.
And there is still an issue with the height chart in the track record screen. On the left hand side I can see the altitude values, but sometimes there is just one, sometimes three (even though there is not enough space for 3, so you can´t read them properly). Any chance to improve the placement of those values?

Other than that the test version worked absolety fine and without any crashes. Oh and being able to reach the hint and log cache button with one click was great too ;-)
I also played around with the POI alert and realized that the vibration is automatically deactivated when you choose a sound. Would it be possible to use both at the same time?

Garmin maps rendering is also clearly improved.

Steps to reproduce:
- open Geocache with existing Field Note
- click the button on top right
- click Log visit
- click existing Field Note
- click Store offline
then you will notice the TIME field has current date and time and not the one that was originally stored...

@ta-ka: I do not understand, why such problems with settings happen to you :/. When you add new profile, it has these 0 values for 'num of points' and 'track width'? Also with track width - there should be able to set decimal number, it's not limited to integer values.

- restoring default profiles - I believe this is not necessary. Default profiles are just suggestions, it's not needed to use them. You can also set them manually - they are here at bottom: http://support.locusmap.eu/hc/en-us/articles/200039002

- jumping tab - you found bigger problem. When keyboard appear, whole layout height is reduced to fit new screen size. I have fixed this, because it's unwanted behaviour on map screen. Thanks!

- weather icon - thanks, also fixed

@eldron: glad you like it, me too :). 5 hours testing, nice. I did yesterday also one small and found few small issues with logging a field notes and also with correct storing of icons of points attached to track. Both will be fixed in next version.

- "Menu button" - change to grey when you tap on "menu" is caused by side menu, that appear only when point is cache and here is empty :). Issue - fixed. Anyway delete button was always at bottom panel, so tap there on last "arrow up" button and at bottom is "Delete" button.

- Labels on Y axis of charts - I've improved it a little, so it should be better now

@wvb: I read also posts on G+, no worry. I just hope that today will be better weather here, so I'll spend few hours with testing out on bike and I also plan to test this issue.

@menion
Looking at the times of your posts-when do you sleep??
I was not talking about deleting a cache, that still works. I meant a point created during track record (for example a picture point) or a point created from the side bar-quick New point our normal point doesn't matter.

I sleep around 5-6 hours, so somewhere between :)

I know you talk about basic points. I just wanted to say that when you open a geocache, then by "menu" button you open side menu with list of options. In basic point, there is no such menu, but "menu" button still opens this side panel (menu). But this time, menu is empty, so you see only dark screen. Anyway I already solved this issue at morning, thanks!

And deleting point directly from track - I think it's possible only when you store a track, not during a ride, but I have to check it ...

'Point count' and 'Track width' in the recording profile, the shown values are zero for new installation.

@ta-ka: I do not understand, why such problems with settings happen to you :/.
My explanation was too short. 'for new installation' means brand-new Locus installation to device.
So, new Locus users will face the problem. That's what I worry about.
Please follow the steps below to reproduce the issue.
1) remove or rename Locus folder in /mnt/sdcard
2) uninstall and install LocusTest or just invoke 'Reset preferences' in settings menu
3) check 'Point count' and 'Track width' in recording profile

Quote from: menion
When you add new profile, it has these 0 values for 'num of points' and 'track width'?
Nono. This works without problem.

Quote from: menion
Also with track width - there should be able to set decimal number, it's not limited to integer values.
I'm sorry I was wrong :'(   I tried again and confirmed decimal numbers are accepted.
I don't know why it wasn't... even I had double checked.

Quote from: menion
- restoring default profiles - I believe this is not necessary. Default profiles are just suggestions, it's not needed to use them. You can also set them manually - they are here at bottom: http://support.locusmap.eu/hc/en-us/articles/200039002
I see. I've reported it because it's possible to retrieve default profiles in current Pro version.
Then, that's fine for me. I'm able to configure recording profiles as I want. And thanks for the link to the manual page.

Ah, I didn't think screen height change was already a problem. ;)

Quote from: menion
- weather icon - thanks, also fixed
Good.

I went hiking today with Locus Test 2.20.2.6 enabling 12 items in the recording panel including two charts. There was no Locus crash during 9 hours of track recording. New recording panel is really good :D ... well, for me, except profile change during track recording ... I found that it needs 7 taps in total. (5 taps to change profile + 2 taps to go back to map)
@all:
Anyone who is interested in on the fly recording profile change, please vote (http://help.locusmap.eu/responses/quickly-change-recording-profile-while-track-recording-is-going-on).

Finally, I report one issue about chart view of the tracks in DB. For some tracks, automatic x-axis scaling is activated in normal chart screen. I haven't found yet the exact conditions to reproduce it but it seems to happen if position of track point of the track and current GPS position is very near.

@ta-ka: thanks. I'll check settings precisely tomorrow. I agree that this is really serious problem for new users so it have to be set correctly for them.

I also had a problem with chart for common track, but I completely forget on this, so thanks for remind!

@Raddino:
1) quick buttons in screen with geocache detail, will be possible in settings > geoaching (at bottom)
2) "Body zájmu" - it's advanced feature planned on July/August probably (we are little in time pressure not so it will take longer then expected). What is in Locus is just testing, so ignore it ...

I tested yesterday first time track recording with new track buttons (http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3919.msg29309#msg29309)  while cycling. For me it was not handy. The very small green button isn´t usefull while you are cycling. Even if you stop and try to pull the button for opening the track menu it´s hard for your fingers to hit the target. :(
In older version you had only to tap on the "Pause" or "Stop" Button. That worked for me without any problems.
Isn´t it possible to add 3 transparent buttons ( "Pause" "Stop" and "Quickpoint") to the left or bottom like in Gyntas screenshot, without using a dashboard?
I think I saw it some test versions before?

Sorry jusc, but this is not possible.

If you need big buttons for track record on screen, why you don't want to use dashboard just with these three buttons?

Also you had previous track record panel on the screen for a whole time? If not, then you always had to tap on "Track record" button in right panel (or in menu) and then on required button. It's same here.

I did a long bike ride today and again the latest Locus Version worked well and the track record screen came in handy.
Just a few small issues:
It looks like some people (including me, but there is at least someone else in one of the German threads) don´t have the green track record button on the left hand side after closing the track record screen. I thought it might be another android 2.x issue, but the other person is using android 4.x .
And the other issue concerns the height profile chart in the track record screen, i found two issues with it.
One concerns the Altitude on the left, i described it before and just wanted to attach some screenshots to show what I mean.
"Altitude1" shows how it should be, the other two show the problems.
As I can only attach 4 pictures I will describe the other issue in the next post.

The other problem happened to me a couple of times today.
I opened the track record screen and the correct height profile (see picture HeightProfileCorrect).
But after a few seconds only the last two kilometers of the track were shown (see picture HeightProfileWrong). This was reproducable for a while, until it suddenly worked again.

Hi, eldron.

Please check your setting at Settings > Map - control & panels > Right panel visibility.
In my case, if 'Never hide' is set, recording panel tab at left-bottom doesn't appear at all.
It appears only if 'Always hidden' or 'Hide...while' is selected.
Because I want to see both right buttons and recording panel tab,
I select 'Hide...while' and set 86400s to 'Hide menu timeout'.
As my devises are android 4.x, I hope these tips work for android 2.x too.

@menion
Is is an intent or an issue that recording panel tab visibility depend on the setting of right panel visibility?

@eldron: thanks for testing. Both problem are known for me (also during my bike tests ;) )

1. labels on altitude chart will need some more changes - test - changes - test, but soon or later I'm sure it will work correctly

2. correctly you should see only last 100 recorded points. So problem is that chart isn't correctly rescaled immediately, but just after it receive another point. It's fix it.

@eldron, ta-ka: we discuss this earlier. It's intent. There are two conditions to see this state left button
1. Android 4.0+
2. 'Track record' button should not be permamently visible as ta-ka found. If you have this button on right panel and this panel is always visible, button won't be visible because it's not needed.

In my eyes this track record screen isn´t usefull very much as long, as you are on the road, because it covers the whole map.
While driving, cycling or even walking you can´t use this screen with a small 4" display.
I add some information panels to a dashboard, so I can control speed and distance with map in the background.
And try to get this track record screen, while you are walking or cycling uphill with left button.
Have a look at Gyntas screenshot (the right one from http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3919.msg29346#msg29346) 7! buttons or info panels for track recording? I have both buttons in the same time too right and left.

Jusc I think it always depend on everyone, what he wants, what he currently do, etc.

Example: I was on short bike trip. Because I like stats and I ride around 10 km on know track, I was watching dashboard. Then I turn to forest and I needed map. Dashboard was useless in this case, so I simply hide it. If you need to ride with map, I think you do not need watch some dashboard values and opposite. Anyway what I wrote in first sentence - depend on user (and also screen size of his device :) ). I generally do not see anything negative on new panel for track record. Anyway I'm open for an constructive critics.

Also as you know me, I do not do 'final solutions'. So if time show, that this panel may be done better, I'll do it.

" If you have this button on right panel and this panel is always visible, button won't be visible because it's not needed."
Ahh, but If you use the record buttons with a dasboard as shown in Gyntas screen, the left button comes up too, even you didn´t configure the record button to the "right disapearing panel". The additional left button isn´t needed too, if you use track recording with dashboard.
Is it possible to make it depending from settings? Default could be leaved untouched, but for me .... :)

during last days i have recorded some tracks and used the "track record panel"
my impression:
1.please add text or/and icon so user direct see the function of "Buttons".
"chart (1)" for example "Altitude chart"
"chart (2)" for example "Speed chart"
2. while using chart during movement only the last 2 km of the track are displayed and if standing still the whole distance is visible. Is there a possibility to view allways the whole distance?
3. Is it possible, if top or bottom field is not used for a "chart" to display item name and value one behind the other? In my example i see "Speed" in bottomfield, but not the value :( there is enough space ;)
4. Sometimes when i click the "back button" of the recordpanel or the "back button" of the device, i get a" white recordpanel" and i have to click once more the "back button" of the device to see the map.
Till now i found no way to reproduce it purposely :-[

You should be able to scroll down to see the rest of the "speed" field.
But i do agree that scrolling down shouldn´t be necessary, as the value could be displayed next to the text.

I read part of your crazy german discussion, so this panel is there just on test. I'm on no yet decided that this panel will be in final version. From my point of view it's confusing to have there two panel for one feature and I still not see any problem with side panel.

And profiles may be changed in settings.

It was a constructive discussion with clear argument from Jürgen.
In his case see examples here:

Some user only need start/pause stop - without values panel.
For this user without dashboard skills, the new rec sidepanel was a step backward.

I think the choice between side panel and bottom panel for track recording is a good solution for now.
You can actually have both at the same time now - i activated the bottom panel, changed back to side panel and the bottom panel stayed. By clicking on the track record button in the right bar the side panel opened  ;)
Like Robin i miss the always log offline option, but i can live with the extra click (now that i have my "log cache" button back at the bottom ;-)
What is meant with this:
-added working version of automatic GC Offlinizer (for now enabling in config.cfg)
Would that automatically offlinize (does that word even exist??) the caches after downloading them?

"crazy discussion" isn't negative sentence. Maybe imagine it in quotation marks ;)

Anyway post you point on is working only in case, you still see old track record panel on map. If you hide it, then you always need additional taps to make it visible. And for is main question - why you need this panel still visible? When I go on bike or some walk, I just start recording and stop it when came back home. And I believe it's a use case of majority of users.

It's just testing feature for now, anyway it do only simple thing. If you watch any cache in Locus, all visible images are in that moment automatically downloaded by locus to cache folder (locus/data/geocaching/... ) and in listing, images etc. tags are visible these pre-loaded images.

Currently all images download android itself so they are cached only for a while (cache is limited by around 10 MB).

Maybe for majority of users... I´dont see the majority, because only very few users are interested in this discussion.
Latest comment  on Google+ is from May 16th (with other topic) and not even only one topic at Google Groups from "testers". So where is the feedback of testers?
And what about one click solutions for OSM mappers using quickpoints "onroad"? Or what about users which use Locus as stopwatch?
I vote for "one" click solutions. Perhaps the majority can convince me otherwise.  ;D
I tried dashboard solutions, they work well, but if you share them to other phones you have to adapt them.

@jusc: I don't know where is feedback from testers. I have one major benefits from testing - if Locus seriously crash - "Force close", I receive report with this crash log. So I can try to find where is a problem. If users do not comment or react on this new version, only what I may think is that everything is OK or they don't care. So because except few posts from you, I had no negative reactions on new track record panel, I believe, people don't care or like it.

Other use cases as you wrote - I belive we may togetger find 100 possible activities, where you may use track record in different way. I always try to find optimal solution which will be somewhere between all possibilities.

My first idea was to create completely separate screen just for track record, but it was even slower during field testing because there were no ability to show/hide with slide. So this was something between.

I don't know who except you still have problems with side panel. I personally found it very useful during ride on bike. Bottom panel on map with it's tiny buttons is very hard to touch during ride, almost impossible. So you still always have to stop to tap on any buttons. With this side panel it is not a problem. Hmm anyway, may you describe me what you do with "track record" feature during one day bike ride? Because maybe this may help me understand why you need to have this panel still visible.

@balloni: 2. hmm I wrote it somewhere ... mnt. Ah just partially here http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3796.msg29355#msg29355 , sorry. So on chart, you see only last 100 points, no more. This limit is there to prevent bigger CPU usage due to some computations needed on bigger charts. Anyway I was thinking about it, and in worst case I may create this parameter configurable by config.cfg

3. sorry, not possible now. Track record is created with exactly same method as a dashboard you create. So what isn't possible in dashboard, isn't possible here.

And offlinizer - I wrote it incorrectly. Better description:
Current Locus version (official):
1. you import any cache, display it on map. Till now, nothing happen.
2. You tap on cache, now you see new screen with point details (geocache details).
3. Locus display listing and Android WebView component starts download images to it's own cache.
4. .. then you check few more geocaches and every cache download it's images to WebView cache. This cache is limited to 10 MB, so when it's fill, new images overwrite olders.
5. You display again first cache and Locus needs to download these images again!!

New Locus Test version:
same steps, except
3. Locus display listing and Android WebView component starts loading images - here anyway comes my code which firstly download all images on card (same directory as GC Offlinizer). And then add these images to WebView.
5. Same point, but images are still cached on card.

This feature is anyway in "DEV" part, because I saw some small problem with reloading of webView page after images are downloaded, so I have to be firstly 100% sure, it work as expected.

Better?

it's not exact. Better - you're correct. I had exactly same problem, too tiny button on side. But in this last test version, this side button react also on slide from side, so you do not have to directly touch it. I already tested it on bike and it works perfectly. Just slide from border of device over this button and it opens side panel.

The issue that I reported on G+ still seems to be present..
I will copy/paste the text here:

I did notice an issue with Field Notes showing the wrong timestamp (today instead of existing).
Steps to reproduce:
- open Geocache with existing Field Note
- click the button on top right
- click Log visit
- click existing Field Note
- click Store offline
then you will notice the TIME field has current date and time and not the one that was originally stored...

Just been out and tried the new test version on a quick jaunt, and am pleased.

The 2 problems I have with the Pro
1. Bluetooth GPS log files  - No longer written :)
2. FC when rotating screen during Field Note creation  - Fixed

As Robin99 posted, miss the Always Log Offline setting. But it is something I can get used to.
 
Having read the discussion on the DE section, I tried the Track Record and I found it worked OK for my needs. But they are simple Start /Stop/Save. Edit liked the sliding panel  more than the bottom panel
I wasn't going to comment on it, but looking at Menions comment from earlier thought I would.

@wvb: thanks and sorry for a delay. I probably found an issue. You have disabled "Use timezone" right? I'll fix this to next version.

@jurek: may anyone confirm missing menu in Menu > Maps > tab Personal? Because I'm unable to simulate it. I have menu visible correctly on all tabs in Map manager.

@gynta: hmm, thanks, I need it sometimes :)

@wvb: yes, it's correct. Partially. It's not visible only if right panel is always visible and on this right panel is "track record" button.

@CaptKaos2: thanks, appreciate it. "Always offline" added back. I was previously little bit lazy to make this work also. Now fully working again.

About labeling items in new rec panel (and dashboard editor)
"Basic items" and "Buttons"

For me, "Buttons" sounds wrong.
A chart is not a button!
On the other hand, "start","stop",...  are buttons.
It looks, you don't have found the right place for chart. :)

So I suggest "Various" or "More"
What you think?

Thanks for your answer in #357, especially the undersandable discription as offlinizer works ;)

problem:
during trackrecording i add a POI and a short discription "airport" 8)
After the tour i edit the discription "view on the airport of ..." and save it, the changed disciption is displayed :D
if i export the track with changed discription there is "airport" displayed
problem solved ! :)
Quote
    so track statisticks will be added to POI only if there will be no your own description.

is it possible to add default a placeholder in discriptionfield, i never want track statistic in POI?
what do you think about a placeholder?

If i take a lock to  "info" of one trackpoint of a recorded track, i see the tradi icon and it seems to be stored under "Tradi", but it isn´t.
I do not understand this behavior, i found no setting for that? and this trackpoints have nothing to do with "Tradi"

@balloni: may you write me what you mean by "placeholder"? Thanks. Anyway as I wrote before .. I need to make new track screen, then it will be simply possible show/not show correct track record stats at certain points. It will anyway take some time

About point - fact that title with icon and name has grey background means, that point is only temporary. So it should be
1. really temporary point from for example G4L add-on
2. issue in Locus when point attached to track is marked as a temporary.

If 2. is correct, are you able to simulate this problem? Because I have no success and my track points are always with read background in title/icon line (which inform that it's point connected to track)

@szebenyib: thanks, I'll check it

in the middle screenshot is the Description field (green recktangle) if i write a letter/word in this field it is displayed see right screenshot "Text" together with "Details" :) perfect!
if this descriptionfield is empty, needless trackinfos are added ???, see left screenshot.
Trackinfos are available in each trackpoint.
So my wish/idea is a "placeholder" in Description field (green rectangle)
it should work like a fake, for example you insert permanent a "white star" unvisible for user and locus believe it is an text ;D
I hope this is more understandable for you.

Hello balloni,
please wait few weeks till I start at least partial work on new track screen. Because for me some changes here will be just an additonal work for a few weeks. Thanks

About clicking on track - here should be a problem, that you tap on red center cross. Because if you tap on cross, Locus select item exactly in the middle of this cross, which may cause problems. Try to move map center cross out of track/points and try it again. It should work better.

@Raddino:
1) quick buttons in screen with geocache detail, will be possible in settings > geoaching (at bottom)
2) "Body zájmu" - it's advanced feature planned on July/August probably (we are little in time pressure not so it will take longer then expected). What is in Locus is just testing, so ignore it ...

Finally i had some time to try and it's awesome! Possibility to customize quick buttons is great. And one more  question. Is there a way to edit offline FN? Thanks for working on Locus!

I see. Great. And it is possible to add a button somewhere to logging menu to see all current FN's (count and list of them) to easily see, how many caches i found today/this week and easily found cache where i want to edit FN? For example, if i want to edit one cache log after trip with 20+ caches, i have to know the cache name to find the exact cache and then i can edit log. It will be nice to have an option to click and see the list, so i can easily edit logs for example during commuting. I hope you understand what i wanted to say :-)

@balloni: I forget to fix problem with track points - so now

@Raddino: work with field notes isn't perfect, but try menu > Geocaching Live > Field notes or in menu > Geocaching Tools > Field notes

@jusc: I know, it needs simplification. Anyway please try color slider on right side, which change base color

@szebenyib: if you have "Locus" style, then double tap do not zoom. It's probably due to "one tap, one up, one tap and slide", and if I remember correctly there is no way to disable this now.

Vector maps - autoload: means that Locus try automatically load another map if you are on border of current map

Shading - it's directly from Locus. And too light - I'm sure everyone want's different strength. Unfortunately there is currently no public settings for this feature.

@gynta:

panels after rotate - damn, you're right, thanks

To change profiles, just go to settings. Where is a problem?

double tap in store - it really still happen? Weird, I'm unable to simulate it

@jurek: please instead of some un-install etc. just create for me a log.

Yes it is more like a tap and slide :) If it is not a great work please implement a checkbox for it to turn off.

Auto-load: thanks, now I understand what it does!

Shading: see pictures attached. I honestly barely see it, however I definitely remember climbing steep hills there with my bicycle.  ;) As comparison I attached one picture with turistautak.hu (relief version) which is quite nice.

Post by: szebenyib on May 28, 2014, 10:53:41
I have checked it again, and although it was switched on (quick switch) it was not active for any type of map in the free version. After I have found that in the menu I activated it for vector maps (that's what I use: openmaps -> vector map downloaded from there, with their theme). Now it works as it does in locus pro, I was a bit noob with it but I just used the quick switch.

However comparing it with the relief turistautak.hu map it could be a bit more darker., so the issue remains. That hill there is really a hill, and a stronger shading would emphasize that. See the two screenshots attached. Especially in the sunlight I would barely see the difference. I can say that because I tend to use this vectormap while en route with bike and I have noted that earlier just forgotten to mention it.

Hi!

One minor "downgrade". In current pro (and previously) the selected map type (online, personal, vector ...) was remembered.
In the latest test version, Locus always opens online maps. If I'm using a vector map, I would like vector tab to be opened!

2nd:
When I'm viewing a downloaded online map (peronal) and I have no internet connection, I do not want to see the red "Problem with internet connection" banner. The old system with the error text inside the empty tile was much better.

I found differences between Pro and test version in planing a route (add route and measure).
In the test version the route doesn´t follow the way as in Pro version

Left ist test version, right is Pro version. It doesn´t matter if you choose an online route service like yours or the BRouter

hmm in this case it should depend on third bottom button - button no. 5 ( http://support.locusmap.eu/hc/en-us/articles/200033951-Add-new-route-Measure ). Do you have same state (enabled/disabled) on both devices?

However comparing it with the relief turistautak.hu map it could be a bit more darker., so the issue remains.

You can use overlay like OSM layers HBM Hillshade

yes, button number 5 is pressed and foot is used in both cases.

I have seen that theme as well, however it is the same :)
Btw. that theme does not highlight hiking paths with the appropriate signs so no other theme may be used but only the one from openmaps.eu.
Anyway thank you for looking :) :)

@stebu: first problem - thanks, fixed. Second - I do not see any such error. It happen to you just when you open 'Maps' screen? Weird, there should be no attempt to connect to internet
OK, it happened only when I switched off internet while I was using ONLINE map to test the map caching feature.
So no problem :)

Hello menion,
thanks for answer, i´ll wait for "new track screen" ;)

have you changed anything exporting a Track with POIs in 2.20.2.8???
If i import a with 2.20.2.7 exported .kmz i am able to select  "Merge Points with track", see left screenshot
If i import a with 2.20.2.8 exported .kmz i am missing  "Merge Points with track", see right screenshot
and so the POIs are additional imported :o

@szebenyib
Have you tried a hillshade overlay map (as Jusc recommended)? That´s not a theme.
It´s a second map (that only displays the hillshading) and that is put on top of a normal, "flat" map to create the hillshades.
You can find it under "More"->"Map Overlay". Then you select the map (Online Maps->Overlays->Hike&Bike Hillshade) And choose your level of transparency. If you want to use it offline you can download the OSM Hillshading(OSM-Layers->Hikebikemap Hillshade), but i can´t remember if i had to manually add that map to the list or if it´s a standard map...

@ Menion
When I open a track and click on the "Point info" button (the neddle with an "i" in the left menu), Locus says "working" (Bearbeitung läuft) and then crashes.This bug is reproducable, so let me know if you need a log.
I also had a problem with closing the geocaching tools screen. When pressing the back button the screen turned white. I had to press back again for the screen to close. I think that problem was described earlier in this thread for the Track record screen. Doesn´t happen every time though.

And one question:
I drew some lines and circles today, but found no way to delete them, other than restarting the app...? Is there any way to delete them? And I also can´t click on them, so how do I get infos about them? Whilst I create the line locus tells me how long it is, but once I have created it I can´t get back to that info screen anymore - or at least I couldn´t find out how to.

@jurek: please instead of some un-install etc. just create for me a log.
EDIT: log not needed, problem found, thanks!

Locus isn't a photoshop clone. :)

@ gynta
Do you ever sleep?
Thanks for your answer, so the point info bug is already fixed :-)
So that´s how you remove the lines/circles! Thanks again. Never thought of Locus as a photoshop substitute... but now that you´ve mentioned it, maybe we should start a little Locus drawing competition?
But seriously - the line can be a useful tool to measure the distance between two points. For that it would be handy though to check the lenght of the line without having to draw it again.
Not very important though - I was just wondering whether it´s possible to get back to that info screen or not.

@eldron I have checked it and it is nice especially together with shading. :-)
(it seems to slow down map drawing, so I believe I will just use it when I'm at home planning a trip.
It was a good idea, thanks. :-)

@stebu: ah you're right! I've changed system for downloading map tiles and this is result. I'll fix it, thanks

@balloni: may you please share with me these two exports? I'll check it's content and find a problem, thanks

@eldron: click on 'Point icon' is already fixed, thanks. About white screen - yes I read about it, but I'm still not able to reproduce it. Fortunately it's not a huge problem. And to delete items - you need to "Remove temp map items". This may be done by button in right panel, button in data > items tab or long click on 'data' button (in context menu) ... ah you already discuss this below, nevermind :)

perhaps i found the reason, and if you need furthermore the files ill share it to you ;) let me know
The difference between both tracks:
in first (left screenshot) i add no text in descriptionfield of the track
Quote
   <name><![CDATA[2014-05-25 16:21:40]]></name>
   <description><![CDATA[1h:05m:31s | 17.0 km<br /><br /><font color="black"><table width="100%"><tr><td><table width="100%"><tr><td align="left" valign="center"><small><b>Length</b></small></td><td align="center" valign="center">17.0 km</td></tr>
in secound (right screenshot) i add text "Track" in the discription of the track.
Code: [Select]
<name><![CDATA[tra2014-05-28 09:59:57]]></name>
<description><![CDATA[Track<br /><br /><font color="black"><table width="100%">
<tr><td width="100%" align="center">Track</td></tr><tr><td colspan="1"><hr></td></tr><tr><td><table width="100%"><tr><td align="left" valign="center">
<small><b>Length</b></small></td><td align="center" valign="center">1.7 km</td></tr>

and additional i found that this text "Track" is displayed twice after reimport

I rebooted my phone Note 2 but no changes.
You can try the way I choosed ( please look at the coordinates) It´s near Vienna (Kalenderberg).
Choose only start and second point. And zoom in at least at 40m, maybe you dont´t see it in lower zoom levels, btw.there is a different look at scale.
With Locus test (right picture) the way is shorter, but there are navigation instructions, that I can´t see with Locus Pro.

Maybe I found it. If you mark "only route" it works correctly

@balloni and @jusc: sorry, I'm unable to simulate both problems.

I'm also closing this topic, guess why ;).

Next 14 days will be, due to a lot of changes, focused mainly on tunning, debugging, fixing and other dirty words. So if there will be problems, my ears are open!!

And I almost forget - THANK YOU ALL - this was long six weeks and without your help, I can never create such monster as new 3.0.0 version ;)

I think I know the reason for the different behaviour dependent on the tick for "only route". In case of not set tick, Locus performs a smoothing of the track in order to possibly generate a better result for navigation orders.

Ah you've got it. Locus use last settings for "Navigation generator" you used, so in this case, it's probably "Number of orders: low". Thanks Tommi!

have you changed anything exporting a Track with POIs in 2.20.2.8???
If i import a with 2.20.2.7 exported .kmz i am able to select  "Merge Points with track", see left screenshot
If i import a with 2.20.2.8 exported .kmz i am missing  "Merge Points with track", see right screenshot
and so the POIs are additional imported :o
I'm testing this issue and seems there is an interesting problem. It's not because of any change in Locus, such issue exists in Locus for a long time. Problem is, that before import, Locus do really simple and fast counting of points/tracks in file. In case of your second file, it search for tracks by counting of '<linestring' text. And in your file is one track separated on two linestrings. That's all. Because Locus think, there are two tracks, you do not see "Merge option". But how to solve it? Hard to say :). Precise counting is quite complicated here if "Analyzing" part before import should be fast.
