Title: Dashboard Chart -
Post by: locuscycling on September 10, 2014, 23:36:53
 Is it possible to delete this traffic direction from Chart ?? How to do it , I want to see only altitude chart .

( (

( (

It looks awfully.

Another problem .I used to  work with Locus this way:
1.Create a route (track) from point to point  in Locus or sometimes in ,,Bikeroutertoaster''
2.Open this route in Locus ---
3. Try to fallow this route. I didn't use ''turn by turn ''nawigation   I saw little rectangle with track information as altitude , trip managed , trip left.......  .This rectangle automattically appearde and dissapeared again and again  ,.... it was very good.
( (

In new versions i don't  have this rectangle .

Some time ago i didn't use ,,nawigation '' or Guide mode just opened a track.

Now (with Altitude Chart in Dashboard )   i  started ,,Guide'' but can see this rectangle only manually  ---when i target created track-then track changed colour and rectangle appear.

What is more when i didn't start ,,Guide'' just open a track still i dont have automatic ,, rectangle''

I didn't have much time to study Locus lately but my little Problem(s) is solved

1. About clear direction signs on chart  it is enough to clear mark as in photo (
Then we have chart without direction signs.

2.About Rectangle- Maybe it is better solution but I found this one.
a) Create a track in Locus ( or import  from gpx) save this same track under two names. ( track a track b)
b) Open all two  tracks to see on map
c) Open ''Guide'' mode for one of the two tracks.( for ex. track a)

Then when we follow track on map  we get Altitude Chart ( in Dashboard) from one track ( here from track a) and rectangle with important info. from track b.

signs was also little bit improved in latest versions, so now you may see just a dots on a map and not an big icons. At least something :).

About missing labels - this is a small problem. Few people (together with me) found these labels during navigation are unwanted. They appear sometimes randomly as you move (your GPS location) over existing points, etc. So I made a solution as these labels do not appear for a track currently used for navigation.

Your solution is possible, on second side a little but complicated. Unfortunately because feedback on this change was only positive, I'm worried there will be no other solution on this problem.

Question for me is: why you wants these popups? Aren't information from them available in Dashboard?

The problem is that  (actual )Dashboard in my small Xperia Active  is already 7 fields + Altitude Chart on the bottom of the screen .
Maybe in the future( new phone)  with little biger screen it will be easier to arrange.

But my solution with 2 track is working, no problem.
Anyway I like this Chart very much, thx.

From last version there is a problem the same like from my post nr1. in this topic (direction sign on Altitude Chart in DASHBOARD). Like here:
( (

In the previous version it was enough ( to avoid  sign on Alt. Chart) not to mark ''Przelicz instrukcje''= recalculate instructions,directiona)  I mean this screen:
( (

In last version it doesn't work for me - I always have this ugly signs on Chart, very annoying.
Now Chart is difficult to read. I do like always here:
( (
I click ,,guidance'' then opened my Dashboard.

I think there is also a problem with X axis  on this Dashboard Chart.
I have in seetings max range of visibility(  m)  = 6000
Sometimes it works - sometimes not (see this post  screen 1)

hmm this is not an issue but a change in Locus guidance system. Since latest versions, Locus always compute navigation commands for guidance/navigation. If you want to disable this behavior, try to enable menu > settings > guidance > advanced settings > notify on every trackpoint. Hope this helps
