VECTOR maps
  it was really quick. Basic support was created less then after a day and half of work. Nice. There is still many problems but maps are usable now and even a fast. For a surprise. Anyway maps use own mapsforge format that have to be prepared from binary PBF files. I have already created Czech Republic (around 250MB!!) for testing and actually I'm creating whole Germany (around 1GB - amazing). Will you be interested in creating any other country? Don't know from where are all of you :). I'll upload it on Dropbox also if I'll have enough space there (anyone can give me 250MB space by registering on dropbox thanks to this link http://db.tt/0k2Hrde (http://db.tt/0k2Hrde) ;) - thanks). If all will work fine, I'll probably create server side solution with map generating and downloading in application, but this later.
  So download map, upload it into Locus/mapsVector directory and enjoy ...

maps for download:

very nice .. firstly in 1.8.0 was problem that I used one function that is not available in 2.1 and lower and now I noticed that I forgot to add into final version buttons that allow show custom screen (they were only in testing versions) ... so today third update is comming :) ... sorry guys ..

Custom screens: amazing!! This is so great! Thank you!!! The tree included screens are great. I guess this is an area where a lot of users would be interested in submitting their own custom screens such that they can be included into the official Locus.

Congratulations  Menion - I think you have created a new arena with unlimited potential that will shoot Locus even further ahead of the rest of the crowd!

My brother has iPhone and was searching for a good GPS program. None of  the apps he pulled out from Apple's AppStore was not even close to Locus - of courses. Would you consider porting Locus to iPhone?

Post by: svartbjorn on May 23, 2011, 11:04:47
I totally agree, berkley! But you know, not everybody knows their best, so I was just thinking that there is a large market there for Menion, so if the iPhone users won't come to you, you need to come to them.  :)
Title: Re: [APP] - version 1.8.x
Post by: menion on May 23, 2011, 17:27:33
hmm, to be true I was thinking about starting programming on iPhone also ... but there is still so much work on Locus on android and I want to Locus be the best map app on Android so I have to stay only on one platform. There is no chance for one person to handle two platforms without lost of quality and quality is for me more important then number of sold (in case that I'll sell on both platforms) apps :). So enjoy Locus on Android and don't forget to unfortunately push brothers phone from table ;)

Post by: svartbjorn on May 31, 2011, 09:13:43
Test version 1.8.4.1:

1) In the Tracks submenu there is now a new "+" button in the header line. The Satellite submenu has three such "+" buttons in the header line. They bring you to different setup menues. Usually Locus is using "+" to add something, e.g. a new point. Here it is to go to a setup menu. This is confusing. Specially it is messy to have three "+" in the Satellite submenu - impossible to remember which "+" goes to which setup menu. And I do not see the need for it.

2) I am excited to test if this new version that has focused on the track recording issues, also solves the phone hang incidents I have experienced when using Locus recording. My phone changed from crashing 5-8 times per day to 0 when I stopped using Locus recording four days ago.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 1.8.x
Post by: menion on May 31, 2011, 09:25:34
ad 1). These are menus that were in locus accessible from bottom menu (by hardware button "menu"). Because of usage of tables i put them on top. There is only "+" button because correct icons are "in creating" :)

2) Not sure if this helps. You may try it but do not expect some better results!
Title: Re: [APP] - version 1.8.x
Post by: menion on June 02, 2011, 17:51:23
uff after almost week of tuning, new version on market! Hope you enjoy new changes and will not be angry for (by me nice) buttons in top right corners of some screens (shortcut to settings that was before in hardware menu) and mainly owners of tablets that enjoy new improved tablet support ... and more will come ;)

Post by: Rob on June 04, 2011, 13:40:29
Nice feature - the top buttons - thx.
What' s cool (found by accident): tip on scale left down shows whole distance of screenwidth.
So it's easier to estimate a route for a dedicated area.
Great....
I love Locus, meanwhile I'm addicted :-)
Little bug: when planning a route with auto and manuell parts. After finishing you cannot select the track when on a manual section. Moving cursor to an auto section highlights the track.
But this is really a very small issue...
Rob

EDIT: 1.8.7.1. same issue not selecting track when on manuell section. But - as I said, its really a minor issue.
All other advantages compensates this a lot....

Yeah, I would. For both Sweden and The Netherlands I live divided in both :) )

Is it difficult/time consuming? I already make my own OSM maps for garmin with Osmosis and mkgmap. I assume these kind of maps are not more difficult?

it's pretty easy. description is here http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/wiki ... terOsmosis (http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/wiki/MapFileWriterOsmosis).

If all this will work, I'll create maps for whole world. It's only question if anyone want maps for testing now :).
Title: Re: [APP] - version 1.8.x
Post by: durian on June 07, 2011, 16:02:21
Yes, not so difficult. I made a map for sweden, and it looks nice in Locus!

I am putting the map onto my dropbox account, but it takes an hour to upload. I'll put a link when it is ready. And it is: http://http://dl.dropbox.com/u/24093622/sweden.osm.map

It also needs a lot of memory -  I tried doing The Netherlands, but it didn't work with 4 GB.

I am now trying on a debian machine at work, it has 8 quadcores and 128 GB of memory :)

-peter
Title: Re: [APP] - version 1.8.x
Post by: durian on June 08, 2011, 08:44:16
Some other observations... would it be possible to enable more than one vector map? I live in the border area between The Netherlands and Germany, and that involves switching maps (unless I make a Europe Vector map :) )

Is there (a 2 GB) limit on the vectormap size? I saw that Germany is 1.15 GB.

Is there some kind of caching possible? Zooming  in and out seems to redraw from scratch. I realise vectormaps are not tiles, so this is maybe not possible.

O, and a little bug. If I switch vectormaps, the new one won't show until I zoom in our out. (edit: on second look, it seems to work right, but the disabled map still shows until I move away.)

Also, 50m seems to be the max-zoom, but the (+) button does not get disabled.

Hi,
is it possible to create croatia (Peninsula of Istria would be fine) for testing? I'll go there on friday and haven't found any satisfying map-sources for biking.
OCM seems to be not very useful for offroad-tracks.

Rob, this is not an issue. You cannot select track itself. Active are only points on track, so you have to tap on start or end of manual part where is some point!

there is now not much need to report. Work on vector maps will take a lot of time and I plan to release them on market at start of July probably. So really, use them, enjoy them but not report me any bugs :). When testing version will be ready for heavy vector maps field testing, I'll tell you :). Until then, test other features and report them. Like "Time rings" ;)

I was going to try and find time today to try building a map (although I have no experience with Osmosis, which looks like it has a learning curve). Now I am discouraged  :(   Would it work OK if I were to just build a small map, say the southern 1/4 of NH? How long do you think that would take? A small map would be OK for testing Locus.

Not sure... I managed to build the Netherlands map, but I had to allocate 16GB to Java. Then I tried Great Britain, that worked also. Next up was France, but that crashed with a Java out of heap space error, even with 16GB allocated. So I will try later today with more memory; other people are using that machine now.

Osmosis was easy to get going - I downloaded osmosis, downloaded the trove jar (link is on the mapsforge page, and installed the plugin in my home directory. It worked without problems (tried on both my MacBook, and a debian server at work).

No problem! Here are some figures. I ran those four on my MacBook Pro (late 2007 model) with 4 GB of RAM. I show the sizes of the osm/map files, the time taken according to osmosis and the unix "time" command, and the memory used, taken from the "top" command.

I ran some bigger maps at work, but that machine is down at the moment. I'll see if I can get those figures later.

Hmm Java heap goes up to 1.5GB but still ...have to try on wife's notebook. Anyway thanks for info.

Yes on the macbook.

Could it be that if the memory is not enough, it goes too slow? When I tried Great Britain for the first time, I stopped it after an hour. When I increased memory again, it ran in 1384 seconds. But that machine has 8 intel quadcores and 128 GB of memory.

new version for POI + Photo fans is here ... main features for testing is taking photo, picking photo, viewing photo and ... finally ... exporting POIs with photo ;). Bugs are expected ... as usual :)
Title: Re: [APP] - version 1.8.x
Post by: Rob on June 10, 2011, 19:59:08
Hi menion, great, that you take care about POIs & Photos - thx much!
1. Tests:
* taking more than 1  foto + storing to point - perfect
* Export poi + fotos in directory with same name as poi -ok.
 Suggestion : store also the poi in this directory would avoid to search for :-)
EDIT: for POIs along a track, they should be stored in track-directory with filename=trackname (=trip- concept as you named it would be THE solution)
and to be able to select/create new directory when exporting- would be fency :-) to be able to differenciate between routes (plannings) and track (records). For now it's hard to separate in the export filelist.

* Picking a foto additional to taken ones - does not work (Galery pops up, to select a foto is possible, returned to Locus,  but no foto shown with poi)
* Picking foto AFTER storing a poi (edit) - also not working.
* when exporting  poi as gpx and trying to open directly in android  in google maps (click on file  and open with maps) - error: cannot load url....

EDIT: whats the difference in sidemenu buttons  + and  +foto? The contents look fairly the same.   I think you can skip the "normal" + button, don't you ?

Guess these a minor bugs, but the overall concept is really great.
Good luck further....

- on exported PX I'll look ...

and diference? First open only edit point dialog, second allow to firstly take a photo ... slight difference, but someone want to quickly take photo and this allow it ...

Not in category but in Directory (export-folder). Now there is the poi in the export dir and a subfolder fotopoi and you have to search both. Than - just take the folder.
Top would be:

EXPORT

--VIENNA
--Vienna_track.gpx

Rob: I don't see it much useful. Firstly you cannot actually add photo to track so you can only export one poi category (and you will then receive one exported file and one directory). I don't see it hard to search these two object in export folder structure.

About exporting. It's hard for me to debug it. Are you at experienced with logcat or do you use some soft like aLogCat? because on my Xoom and DHD, all works fine as I wrote before. So I'll try simulator now and then probably I should do some testing version with debug messages that you can catch thanks to aLogCat

Ok, maybe I have to think about better use of my categories. Perhaps if tracks and pois could share same category name, it would help.

not need to play ... founded mistake. It just a stupid space in name of added photo. try to add photo which do not have space in name. Got it ... :) nice weekend guys

EDIT: did anyone know how to correctly link image to GPX file? This

<link href="./test_001-photo/IMG 20110528_185738.jpg">

do not work and Google Earth on dektop throw error and no point is show. Without this line, it works and you can see point on map. I tried various relative/absolute path but noting works for me

Osmosis was easy to get going - I downloaded osmosis, downloaded the trove jar (link is on the mapsforge page, and installed the plugin in my home directory. It worked without problems (tried on both my MacBook, and a debian server at work).
-peter

Well, I hate to admit this, but I need some pointers. I have downloaded trove, osmosis, and the mapforge plugin.

What do I do with trove once I have it? It comes with no instructions, and I couldn't even find any on the web. I guess it's aimed at Java developers, who just know what to do with it. I am not a Java developer though  :(

The installation instructions for osmosis do not make any sense to me. The Readme says "On Windows, the file can reside in the following locations with later files overriding earlier files: %USERPROFILE%osmosis.bat". Firstly, simply copying the batch file to that folder cannot possibly be sufficient because it will not be able to find the library files. Second, the batch file calls %USERPROFILE%osmosis.bat, so putting the batch file there and running it leads to an infinite recursion.  :?

Hopefully, once I have osmosis installed correctly I can copy the mapforge plugin to the Windows equivalent of the folder "$USER_HOME/.openstreetmap/osmosis/plugins", which at the moment of course does not exist.

Sorry for being dumb, but I figured it's easier to ask than to keep searching the web for better instructions.

No problem, it is mostly obvious for people who have experience with these kind of things!

Having said that, I only tried it on Mac OS X and Linux - I have actually not much experience with Windows, I used a Mac until 1994, and then started to use Linux. At work I have always worked with Unix systems. But I can explain what I did on the mac with the different parts of the system.

First of all, I downloaded and unzipped osmosis-0.38. There is a bin directory there with the osmosis.bat file, and a file called osmosis. The latter I can run from the command line in OS X/linux, like this. Assume I am in the same folder I unzipped the osmosis archive. Then I can run "osmosis-0.38/bin/osmosis" to start osmosis. The osmosis script in the bin directory finds all the files it needs. I am assuming (hoping :-) ) the bat file will do the same. Maybe you can try to start osmosis like that?

Then I downloaded the trove software from http://http://sourceforge.net/projects/trove4j/files/trove/ I unzipped it and put the trove-3.0.0rc2.jar into this directory: osmosis-0.38/lib/default/

For the mapfile-writer plugin something similar. First I downloaded the mapsforge-mapfile-writer-0.2.3.jar    from http://http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/downloads/list This I put (and now te problems will start :) ) into this directory in my home directory:  .openstreetmap/osmosis/plugins/ (openstreetmap starts with a dot). I'm not sure how that translates to WIndows though...

Hm, I guess I am not much help, but maybe it helps a little.

Yes, this works. The instruction in the readme file "On Windows, the file can reside in the following locations with later files overriding earlier files: %USERPROFILE%osmosis.bat" seems to be a complete red-herring. I have no idea what it is talking about, and the right thing to do seems to be to just ignore it. Simply running the Osmosis batch file works.

Thanks. I found that instruction later in the documentation for the plugin. I was looking in the wrong place. I feel I should also have guessed that dropping it in the lib directory would work, but you know what they say about hindsight...  :)

In Windows it is "C:documents and settings<Your Name>.openstreetmaposmosisplugins". You just have to create the directory and drop the plugin into it.

It helped a lot. I just needed a couple of pointers, and you supplied them. Thanks  :D

Now, like Menion, I am having trouble with anything other than very small maps though. Without the type=hd option I get an out of heap space error. With the type=hd option I successfully converted Delaware, but that is only 3.7Mb. It looks fine in Locus. I get a runtime error trying to convert New Hampshire though, which is 22Mb (not exactly huge either!). I'll have to play around a little to see if I can get past this latest hurdle.

The UK map looks great. It seems much slower to load than the raster maps though. Is this just the nature of vector maps (because it has to process the map data)? I'm not complaining, just curious. Vector maps in Locus is going to be a really big advance, even if they are slower to load!

and vector maps ... as you say. They are much harder to create bitmap to draw, that's why they are slower. Big benefit is space they need and also ability to search and route in data (this will maybe done later by mapsforge as I read). I'll also do some cache storage to increase speed of viewing areas you already saw

I have problems with the type=hd option too - maps which I can create otherwise fail with this option.

Did you try changing the heapspace in the osmosis.bat file? I added "JAVACMD_OPTIONS=-Xmx3000m" to the osmosis start-up script to get more memory. The sweden map was the largest one I managed to do on my 4 GB laptop.

The largest I can set is 1400m ("set JAVACMD_OPTIONS=-Xmx1400m" in the batch file). If I try anything larger it can't create the Java VM. I assume that's because I'm running Windoze 32 bit. With that setting I can't covert the NH file, so I think it's time to give up. Most files are much bigger than the NH file, so if it can't do NH there's no hope.  :cry:

Yes, in total. However, when Windows allocates the virtual memory space for each application by default it allocates 2Gb for the OS and 2Gb for the app. Since I can only allocate 1.4Gb for the heap I assume Java is reserving 600Mb for "other stuff". I can enable a 3Gb switch at boot time that changes the allocation of memory so that the app gets 3Gb and the OS only 1Gb. In principle that should give me enough memory for a 2.4Gb heap. I'll try it.

Thanks. Let me try the 3Gb switch first. If I get NH done I also want Massachusetts though, which is 109Mb. I know I will not be able to do that!

There seems to be a problem with the NH data - I get a null pointer exception with both the pbf and the bz2 file. So it is maybe not your windows/java which is the problem!

So much for that idea. The 3Gb switch is only useful if the application is made aware of the option using "IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE" in the process header. I just assumed that Java would have that enabled, but I guess not. It made no difference to the maximum available heap.

Post by: rijackson741 on June 24, 2011, 00:31:54
! am a real sucker for punishment sometimes, so I decided to give the vector map creation another go. I learned a few things that may be useful to others.

Because of my memory limitations (i.e. my PC; I'm not senile. Yet) I tried to build some maps using a bounding box to limit the size of the generated map. For example, to create a map of Nashua, NH, from the full NH map:

osmosis --rb file=new_hampshire.osm.pbf --mapfile-writer file=NashuaGF.map type=HD bbox=42.704465,-71.541876,42.775014,-71.420628

I got the bounding box points from GE.
I also tried the same thing using the bz2 file from Cloudmade downloads:

osmosis --rx file=new_hampshire.osm.bz2 --mapfile-writer file=NashuaCM.map type=HD bbox=42.704465,-71.541876,42.775014,-71.420628

Both of these worked fine, even though I can't generate a map of the whole of NH. They only took 2-3 minutes.
As another example, create a Wheatley map from the Cloudmade bz2 file for England:

osmosis --rx file=england.osm.bz2 --mapfile-writer file=Wheatley.map type=HD bbox=51.720488,-1.323776,51.794130,-1.081554

There's a reason I chose to create this map from the Cloudmade files, but I'll put that in another post. This example is important, because although the resulting map is very small, the starting file is large: 368Mb. It seems the memory limitations are mainly associated with file writing, not the file reading. So anyone should be able to create small maps from large starting files, even if you don't have access to a big Debian server like Peter  :) You do have to be patient though; this one took about 2.5 hours.

A couple of additional notes;
You do not need to unzip the .bz2 file to get a .osm file, even though the Wiki here; http://http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/wiki/MapFileWriterOsmosis implies that you do.
You might get a lot of warnings at the end that it couldn't delete files "C:Documents and Settings<YourName>Local SettingsTempidx********.tmp". At least, I get this every time. You should go and delete these files manually, because they can be very large (>1Gb).

I also created a map of southern NH. I suspect nobody else will want this, but if they do then I'll upload it. I cannot create a map of some parts of NH, not even a very small map. I logged an issue at MapForge regarding this: http://http://code.google.com/p/mapsforge/issues/detail?id=134&colspec=ID%20Type%20Status%20Priority%20Stars%20Owner%20Summary%20Modified

The real good news is that every map I have managed to create seems to work great in Locus  :D

E.g. streetnames are only shown on very high zoom, and I want that at least the mainroads are displayed in smaller zooms.

Regarding widget:
It really works fine! Even starts Locus if it's not running when Start recording.
"Stop" opens the Track recording menu,
"Pause" stops GPS (if set so)
"add point" opens the proper POI menu.... really easy.

Great work, thx.

also question on all: what are main information you want to see on a widget? Also, it interesting for you to have for example two sizes? One wide (as current) and one half only with start/stop button for example?

Yes, I would prefer a 1x2 widget. But I would prefer that the top and bottom of each half have separate functionality, so that all four functions are still available. This should be possible, because Weatherbug has a 1x1 widget for which tapping the bottom gets you a configuration screen, and tapping the top takes you into the app. Having said that though, assume that my vote doesn't count for much. I will almost certainly do all my recording from within Locus anyway, even if the widget is available.

The intermittent FCs have gone for me too, but I have found another problem. I tried a recording. Starting the recording from the widget worked fine. When I stopped it I got the expected "save" screen, changed the name, and selected OK. But now if I try to start Locus Free it shows the same save screen again (with the exact same default name with the same time in it, so it's not a new track). So I saved the track a second time. When I did that I briefly got a recording notification, and then Locus Free exited (no error messages, just an exit). If I look in Locus Pro, the first track is correct, but the second one has a time of 0h:0m:0s and a distance of 0m. I then tried going into Locus Free again, but I got the same save screen again! So I saved the track a third time, got the same brief recording notification, Locus Free exited, but this time no track was saved at all. After that, every time I started Locus Free I got the same thing. If I select "Cancel" instead of "OK". Locus Free also exits.

Next I started a new recording from the widget. It started recording fine (which surprised me a bit - I was expecting it to do something bad at this point!). When I stopped the recording it saved fine, as before (with a new default name, so it's now a new track). Then I could exactly repeat the sequence above, except that I managed to get it to save two additional 0h:0m:0s tracks rather than only one.

I had the crash too, in the previous version, but I don't see the problem rijackson741 describes. Just came back from a small drive, used the widget to record, pause and stop. Afterwards Locus Free opens normally, without problems.

One thing I noticed, it seemed to switch off the GPS when pressing pause on the widget - but I have the "Keep GPS on when paused" switched on.

Another difference is that you see the track on the map after (auto-)saving when recording in Locus. After pressing stop in the widget the track is not displayed. Not a problem, just a small difference in behaviour :-)

I just rebooted the phone and tried again. Same thing, except that this time I manged to save many 0h:0m:0s tracks.

Also, if I turn off the GPS in system settings and then try to record using the widget I get a FC. After that the widget is dead.

I have figured out what is going on. I do not have Locus Free on my home screen, only Locus Pro. But since I knew I had run Locus Free earlier, after recording I selected it from the recent apps list (an act of laziness!). If I do that I always get the track save screen again. If I go to the actual Locus Free app and select that, Locus Free opens fine. After I have done that the icon in recent apps of course opens Locus Free normally again.

So Locus Free now has a split personality  :D

MapsForge has released new version 0.2.4  8-)  Have you already used the new mapfile-writer? Would be interesting, if the created maps are different to the 0.2.3 version...  ;)  I'm just loading a 0.2.4 map from their server...  :)

It's certenly not the first time your will hear that but i really hope Locus will one day come to iOs.

It's for me, even in it's actual version, the best GPS/Mapping app ever made. Yes it's not perfect, but it's very complete and absolutely awsome.
