Hi gynta, firstly thanks for information about incorrect link to our blog post. You was first and You saved us :).

About text ... hmm, anything wrong about it?

Because you want a new line in the text.
Not important - but not working "\n\n" are useless.

@Menion you discuss in http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=4806.msg39823#msg39823 about Copy of track. I note when I tap the question mark next to Generate commands checkbox it says

"Generate navigation commands along current track. Trackpoints with commands won't be preserved"

However my test just now shows trackpoints with commands are still preserved?

Recall our discussion @ http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/navigtion-commands-are-still-copied-to-new-track-when-unticked-generate-commands. The text is misleading or all commands should be deleted. I note you ask for reminder in your last post of that topic  ;)

Hi Andrew. You have a track with some navigation commands and you tap on "Create copy" with enabled "Generate commands", right? Then result should be copy of track that will have fresh new generated commands instead of old commands.

I'm checking code of this function and steps are:
1. you tap on "create"
2. is created exact copy of track
3. if "reverse" is checked, then track is reversed and existing commands are reversed as well
4. if "generated commands" is checked, then all navigation commands (waypoints) are removed and completely new track with new commands is generated with exactly same shape as original track
5. all other parameters are set like name, new time of creation, style of track
6. track is stored into database

Android's Navigation Bar at screen bottom overlaps on the profile selection menu of the track recording. The most bottom item in the profile list is hidden by the bar. Here is how to reproduce.

1. enable FullScreen in Locus, then Navigation bar disappears below the screen bottom.
2. open track recording panel and tap profile selection button. The selection menu and Navigation bar appears at the same time and the bottom item in the profile list is hidden by Navigation bar.

@ta-ka: kill me. I've spend on this again almost two hours. It is known problem to me already few times reported on help desk (not exactly this with spinner, but generally problem that bottom software buttons appear when something change on screen), and I'm still unable to solve it ... grr, sorry.

Hi menion,
1. after update and first open of track record setting i get once this two screens, what should user do with this info and only one button?
For test i have installed locus new, but i cant reproduce it, so at the moment only for your info ;)
(http://s11.postimg.org/wzmf6x58f/first.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/wzmf6x58f/)

2. i found different label content after i click on questionmark, only with profil "Jogging" i see "icon joggen", it is different to my profil icon????, for all other profiles is no icon visible, why?
3. label is furthermore visible after i click back button, till next click somewhere
(http://s11.postimg.org/bu6ehjykf/profil.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/bu6ehjykf/)

EDIT: after click on "recommend Locus map" 3-dot button "My history" i get this info, but it didn´t solve problem!
to solve it user hast first open/login to store

@balloni55: hmm they looks quite good when I see them :).

Reason is simple - we do usually once per two months usability testing where Petr invite 6-8 people and everyone do with Locus for almost an hour certain tasks we prepare and we test where are major problems etc. And during these tests appear two problems related to these screenshots. In case of track recording panel, they usually were not sure if green button means that track recording is already running or not. In case of export screen, almost no-one tapped on "GPX" button because it do not look like button. So there popup screens should notify that there is something interesting on these buttons and small description should inform "what". Because they are visible just once, I hope they are not to obtrusive.

2. maybe preferred folder in case of "Jogging" style? This question button is anyway quite ugly and I need to find some better method how to quickly display parameters for selected profile. So thanks for report about problem, it will be fixed automatically once I find better system :).

4. history - I saw this too. Some problem with verification of login credentials on Store, hope it won't happen too often.

@Andrew: hmm then all seems to be correct. You have two choices:
1) "Generate commands" is ticked - then as i wrote, Locus generate completely new commands along copied track
2) "Generate commands" is UNticked - Locus create copy of track with all existing waypoints

If you wants to create copy that will also remove all waypoints, it is not possible now. For me it looks like all this was already said in mentioned topic http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/navigtion-commands-are-still-copied-to-new-track-when-unticked-generate-commands , isn't it?

Talking about the floating action button:
In the tracks and points screen, the + may easily hide the 3 dots. In this case, I can collapse/expand some folders to access them, but it's produce a situation where you just can't click the dots.
Btw, the "tap area" of the round button is actually bigger - I have a Note 4 with S Pen, and even if I tap outside of the circle in some pixels distance, it may still register as tap on the button. I assume, it's in fact a square tap area...

Hi,

stumbled over some problems on a mtb-trip last weekend.
Before the tour, I planned a nice route using "route & measure" with some local attractions as waypoints and Brouter as routing engine. I had not checked "calculate instructions" while doing this.
In older versions of Locus I simply tabbed on the route on the screen and startet navigation via context menu. As the route generated by Brouter contained no nav instructions, Locus would generate them on the fly and then start navigation.
However, this behaviour does not seem to work any more with the current version. There are no navigation instructions generated on the route now. Navigation only shows the distance to the next via-point.
I think this is because the via-points are preserved in the track now, when saved from "route&measure". On start of naviagtion via context menu, Locus thinks there are nav instructions on the route already (the via-points) and therefore skips the creation of nav instructions by itself.

So I duplicated the track with "generate instructions" checked, which created the nav instructions and also seemed to preserve my via-points (at least they where visible as arrows on the duplicated track). However, after detouring because of private property on my way, Locus recalculated the route (I checked "point priority" in the settings), but ignored the via-points and tried to guide me to the finish point! Although I was already quite exhausted at this time, it was not my intention to directly return home ;-)

I ended up re-generating the whole route with "route&measure" and "generate instructions" checked in the middle of the woods :-) Fortunately, this was not too time-consuming and the rest of the trip went well (inlcuding correct recalculation to the next via-point on detours).

I understand that the first issue (no automatic nav instructions on tracks with via-points) might be difficult to solve, because the track could as well come from another source and Locus should not overwrite nav instructions.
But would it be possible to preserve via points when duplicating a track and actually consider them in recalculations?

@balloni55: I've downloaded mentioned track once more. Seems that description is only in root of GPX file, not next to <trk> itself. So I've copied <desc> into <trk> section and imported it. After that, this description really appeared in description of track itself and seems that link to Locus homepage is really clickable.

If you do anything different , please give me more precise steps so I may fix it, thanks.

About caches ... I'll check it, thanks.

@zossebart: hmm nice two issues at once. I'll check it, thanks. And sorry for a troubles during a trip!

Long three weeks without BETA version, sorry for that guys. Scinkk who helps me create a graphics to Locus find some more time for me so we started big refresh of icons in Locus to new hi-res versions. In the end, it took us almost 2 weeks. Trust me, I already had a dreams about icons :).

So enjoy new Beta, hope you will like some UI changes and also a full support for Google Drive. Let me know if you find any problem or you find something confusing etc. - I'm at your service!

Have a nice evening!

@balloni55: I start login to GD. Firstly name, then pass. Then in same window appear new web page screen with place for insert of security code. This I received over SMS, inserted into field and press "OK" (or something like this). And voala, screen with "Locus requires permission to .." appear. Confirm - and working.

Did you do something different? Like closing this login screen before security code arrives as SMS or over email?

@jusc: Scinkk (graphics guys) convinced me to reduce colors of all images to simple black/white. Previously not just settings icons had some various small colorization. To be true, I also liked it, anyway in our company works voting system where it was 2:2 (black/white vs colored) so Scinkk's decision has final word :). Anyway we will see also in the field (on the sun), if black/white without (from my point of view) useful colors will be a "problem". Two other questions - thanks balloni.

Thanks for the explanation Wolfgang. Nice feature. Did I miss the discussion/ how did you find the setting?

I tried Red Cursor V2 with large 150%

but the cursor on map is tiny little dot (can you see it? even at 150% is so small):

I now don't see any compass in the beta, and in Pro I now see this oversize fragment of a truncated triangle:

I thought it may have something to do with config.cfg setting: dev_gui_main_rescale_value=1.3
so I commented that out, but it made no difference to the compass.

Same here with default coursor and 100%
but only in the beta not in PRO as Andrew reports

Jup sorry - because we are here in "(new)Versions" thread
...and PRO has no scale function :)

So OT: Problems with wrong size in PRO depends on wrong graphics inside cursor pack

It´s a cursor set created years ago.by  8)  ;D (http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=1939.0).
Feel free to use and to combine with other cursors.
thanks @jusc, I guess it's related to this new cursor scaling feature? BUT the preview of the cursor on the settings screen is completely different to the map screen; I wouldn't mind so much if they both looked equally good or equally bad.

Long discussion around compass arrow, sorry for that :). In beta, I've by accident scaled compass by 2* so result was ... not perfect. In next version I've changed this to 72x72dp rectangle where will be 64x64dp image (dp = px * density of your device, usually 2*). This image will be scaled to correct size and centered. Hope it will works fine.

Scinkk (graphics guys) convinced me to reduce colors of all images to simple black/white. Previously not just settings icons had some various small colorization. To be true, I also liked it, anyway in our company works voting system where it was 2:2 (black/white vs colored) so Scinkk's decision has final word :). Anyway we will see also in the field (on the sun), if black/white without (from my point of view) useful colors will be a "problem".
i respect your votes. B/w or color - your decision.
but be straight!
currently there is a mix.

same receivables on icon size.
some icons are big - other icons are tiny dots (topic: sunny days...)

Work in progress ... :). Anyway except track record and GPS (which has colored icons due to it's state) and temperature, wind & rain icons, all should be just blck/white. Icons for applications and some special features (like munzee etc.) has it's own icons, so Locus respect them. But sizes - you are correct. These icons coming from different application may have probably different sizes because not all apps use same sizes as Locus expect. I'll try to unify it, thanks.

Hmm small illness, small delay. Anyway version is out. I still see some graphical inconsistence (size of images, texts and spaces) in "main menu top icons" and "menu > more", so please ignore this for now, thanks. KML/KMZ browser is in early testing phase, but for basic checking of content and mainly finally setting of opacity to KMZ ground overlays, it works quite well I think :). Enjoy weekend!

@balloni55: seems you are a) only one who have problem or b) only one who try to use it :)

If it do not work clearly on first attempt, I'll have to improve it somehow. Anyway you should simply for example enable your calibrated map (with on-board calibrator) or for test, downloaded Australian KMZ from Store - enable in Data > Items as you probably did. Then green icon appear on map screen - open it > tap on item in list (there should list of enabled kml/kmz files) and click on them

@tramp20: oki, anyway just icon has changed ;)

thanks for your description,  example you described work on first use :)
In first moment i didn´t realiced that new function is only for map overlay and i used a available track/POI.kmz inside items for my first attemt  :-[   get result as i described and was confused.
So i think locus should recognize it´s a map.kmz and only then start overlay option 8)

- sec 35 > after i activate second item, track is visible
- sec 55 > i hide the track inside track details
- sec 59 > eye button is furthermore blue, although the track isnt visible

With this workflow (sec 55) green icon is at the end always visible, only solution i found to hide it > enable again "Kreuzbachblau.kml" inside item and disable it.

Hi,

I sofa-tested the navigation (and recalculation) with new test version 3.13.1.7 again.
First of all: navigation instructions are successfully auto-generated on navigation start on previously created track with via points (but without instructions). Thanks!
But the problem with not using the via-points when recalculating the route (with point priority) still exists!
Here are the constellations I tested:

1. Create Route via "Route & Measure" including some via points, but not generating instructions.
- start navigation: nav instructions are generated and used
- recalculation: via points are ignored

2. Create Route via "Route & Measure" including some via points and generating instructions.
- start navigation: nav instructions are used
- recalculation: via points are used

3. Copy Route from 1., not generating instructions (so the track basically stays the same, only with a new name)
- start navigation: nav instructions are generated and used
- recalculation: via points are ignored

4. Copy Route from 1. and generating instructions
- start navigation: nav instructions are used
- recalculation: via points are used

So 2. and 4. are ok.
The problem only occurs on tracks with via points, but without nav instructions (1. and 3.). Is this planned to be fixed?

compass ... sorry, I've forget to improve it, so next time ;)

@balloni55: hmm automatically enabled merging of track and it's waypoints ... this have to be disabled in this case, done, thanks.

"Import" - Michal also push me to do something with this. Copy files directly into "mapitems" directory is not simply possible as there is no mechanism to select "where to copy". So best should be for now, remove "Import" option from top toolbar.

@zossebart: thanks, I like sofa testing (my favorite) ;). Issue found. Because it seems to be quite complicated problem, please check it with next beta version once more. From my quick testing, it seems to work correctly now for all possible combinations.

@LocusUser#1: well, I know. Hard to solve now.

@balloni55: login problems - hmm Google, compare to other services, invalidate login of app after around 1 hour. So every hour, Locus needs to request new "token" for access to your GD. Seems it do not work perfectly yet, thanks I'll try to be careful during testing and hopefully same issue happen to me as well.

Newest beta:
1) Locus requests internet connection w/o obvious reason. I don't know if it happens only during navigation, anyway it shouldn't do so as navigation source is brouter.

2) Nice rework of icons, I like it, though I'm Locus user for more than four years. Just one thing: Please take care for (almost) maximum contrast, the orange navigation arrows might be hard to see in bright sunlight.

@balloni55: hmm so problem is just "naming conventions". In this, I still think that "import" is better. It is same as menu > more > import ... here you also select a file and import it into current database. Same here I think.

And remaining green icon ... nice, I'll fix it thanks.

@tommi: glad you like, me too :). I was testing orange navigation arrows last week and it was bad. Contrast was too low. This weekend I've tested improved version with blue icons and it was even worst :). So Scinkk is just preparing third version with dark roads on background and highly visible blue arrows (similar to icons that were in Locus up to now), so hope it will be ok.

About internet connection: hmm and are you able to see to which url address Locus send request? There should be some network link running on background, online map (as overlay maybe?), WMS map? Locus also use Google Analytics so maybe it should be some data that Google send, but these should be send just rarely usually over wi-fi so it will be probably some feature of Locus itself. But hard to say from my table ... :/

The message pops up every let's say 1-2min. Just as a side-note, WLAN was switched on but no reception, mobile radio was switched off (airplane mode).
I only work with vector map, altitude data I have available as SRTM. I never observed such behaviour of Locus in the past.

After a week of trying I've only just been fast enough to get a screen capture. Any idea how to fix it? I can't suggest anything else has changed on the phone. Everything else is "normal". There has been no change of auto-backup folder. It seemed to happen when the icons changed (v3.13.1.5).

@Andrew Heard: hmm I've noticed this also. As you discovered, problem is with incorrectly set path to backup directory after some change in Locus (like restore of backup). In your case, you see this message probably because Locus test and try to setup automatic backup after every restart of your device. Correct setup of this path in settings should fix this problem. Anyway absolutely agree that message should look a lot better :).

@balloni: Ground overlay in file has defined it's own opacity to some value (it's defined by "<color>80ffffff</color>"). And Locus take this parameter as 100%. So slider in side panel then define opacity only in range ffffffff > 80ffffff. I'll try to improve it, thanks

@balloni55: hmm you KML file is little bit ... unexpected :). One map is in subfolder and second isn't. Anyway ... fixed, thanks!

"Training manager" - layout also improved, thanks. Fact that configurations has lost ... hmm maybe some problems with restoring backup? Because otherwise there should be no reason why this configuration should lost.

"TTS manager" error message - you probably already noticed that system around TTS is not perfect (mainly because of quite often topics on help desk) and needs some more re-work. If it works even that you see this error message - fine :).

@jusc: is this arrow some blurred or oversized? Hard to say here what is "too large" or "too small". I hope that current size will be finally a good compromise for all.

For years, all was ok for me.
Beta with 100%. Both icons are bigger than in Pro.

Ah... and what i want to say: I love the old map icon of Pro version (right top).

@jusc: I like that icon too, but it's just too complicated compare to other icons, unfortunately.

Interesting that middle cross is larger with 100% scale too. Probably there were some incorrect scaling before. Anyway you may modify this. Compass arrow, this is different story - difference in old and new version is not so big I think, so leave it for now please. I also need to test it more in the field.

@balloni55: you are welcome. And again ... you find everything :). Icon in top map bar is different because in the evening I was chagning these icons, I was too lazy and just this one cause me some troubles. Because soon will have maps from Store next to POI database also database with addresses, we are naming them as "LoMaps" and set them also a different icon, to make this difference clear. Thats all ...

The difference between old and new version is not so big? My pro compass icon was fine until the recent beta with new icons. I already mentioned this at the time. beta compass (right) is fine, pro compass (left) is unusable. Solution?

Andrew,
what version of Locus Pro and Android are you using?
I wonder that your icons of Pro differs so much from mine.
I use still Android 4.3 and Pro 3.13.1 on Note 2 with 240dpi

@jusc - Pro 3.13.1 (latest version), Android 5.1.1, Xperia Z1 ~400dpi, standard icons (as far as I'm aware), I'll say again the compass icon in Pro was "good" size and only changed size when I upgraded Locus beta 3.13.1.5 (28th Nov) which in the release notes says "work in progress - icons..."

@gynta @just - thanks for both your help - it turns out I had "red cursor V2 - Locus community" map cursor source selected. When I change to default or Locus (v. 2014) the compass is now OK. Curious - the "red cursor V2" is displayed OK in 3.13.1.5, so I'm guessing it work work again with next version of Pro. Note I haven't changed the map cursor for a long time, but clearly 3.13.1.5 did make some difference. Sorry to waste both your time.

I just tested it a bit.
For new Beta you have two create some compass icons new.
Cursors red V2 p. e. is too big.
The advantage of Beta is, that you can  insert better (bigger) icons.
The original view with smartphone is sharper than these screenshots show the icons  ;)

it turns out I had "red cursor V2 - Locus community" map cursor source selected.
Locus select his cursor size from folders (if exists)
see http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:customization:icons#basic_cursors
But sometimes this cursor icons are to small/big
I don't like to use a "resize option" for a pixel graphix. (blurred or coarse graining)
I suggest to create you own best fit cursor icon package.
Not easy, because sometimes we need a large navigation cursor but also a small center cross.
That's the reason why I have updated the red cursor V2 - long time ago as an construction kit:

Hmm quite long and complicated discussion about cursors. I'm now not sure, if in latest beta is any serious problem with them or now. Btw. what you think about adding support for SVG based cursors. May this be useful for anyone? (because it is doable now).

@balloni55: thanks, eye will be fine in "point screen". And same icons for "same function" - not exactly. Function in popup always loads all waypoints. Function in screen is some kind of "toggle button", that switch between loaded/unloaded

EDIT: btw, thanks for a log with crash at start. Probably fixed. And please, change your email from old support.locus to new locus.map@asamm.com which is only email where is officially support for Locus, thanks

There are a lot of compass svgs, but if there are more than 2 or 3 users will use this feature?

- all cursors as vector gfx (gps, network, cross, move, view and rotate_arrow) ?
- only one resize setting for all of them ?
- support means additional (pixel AND svg) ?

@jusc: it won't be too much work, so even if few users, it will be fine. And also ... these cursors may be placed to Store which will increase number of users a lot

@gynta: yep, all cursors as vector. Probably all defined as 48x48px images, Locus will then resize them by density of device + apply defined percents in new settings.

Btw. almost all icons in Locus are in this new beta version as SVG images, so no worry in future because of device resolutions!

compass size is currently hardcoded to 48dpi (which for example on SGS2 means 96x96px). If such icon will be in SVG, size will be same. Icons in SVG means, that may be one icon and on all devices will be really sharp and exact. No bluring.
