"Select all" in file browser (gpx import to folder) seems to select subfolders as well, resulting in "same filetype" error message.

"Backup not successful" notification. Unfortunately I swiped it away. I see a working zip file from this morning, it seems OK.

With this new version 3.48.1 I get always a crash (free and pro on Android 10, Android 5.1.1 is ok) when I close automatic backup - settings even without changing something.
I sent two feedbacks today

Thanks @tramp, based on this and also the second problem with crash after adding the WMS map, I've today published one more version: 3.48.2. Tested so it should work correctly now.

@balloni55
thanks, the TODO list for geocaching is growing and growing ...  ???

Some problems with backup ... there should be minor update in current version in cases, you get backups more often then planned. Anyway I still did not observe any "unsucessful" message ...

Thank you, no more crashes with  automatic backup - settings.

Today again but this time without a backup.
The other times this message came with a correct backup.

Today I had to rely on restoring a backup while diagnosing lack of DEVICE ADMIN APP security settings for display on/off control while navigating. I found (unrelated to my main task) that Navigation > "Link with preset" settings are not restored. Maybe a bug?

Bug - untranslated string: "T:Invalid source parameters": 3.48.2 Pro. Probably not  related to latest version.

From Route Planner: I was trying to create a test route with navigation commands every 10 metres where I could subsequently set the command to be one of the 10+ directions for testing my own TTS ZIP. I get an error that distance between points (10m) is too short. This is OK, but then on undo, I get the untranslated string: "T:Invalid source parameters".

"Unsuccessful Backup" notification. 2:01 am. But there is a zip file from 2:01 and it seems OK.

One little improvement for the Track Editor:
Menion, you might remembered some years ago we discussed about the "timestamp-recalculate" feature of the Track Editor?! For those who don't know: In the Track Editor ("Modify Track"), when using "Insert/Edit trackpoint", moving track points will also change their timestamps. For adding trackpoints, it's obvious that a new time has to be calculated. Now when moving existing points, Locus will also recalculate the timestamp based on the new distances. In principle a useful feature, but I always disagreed with Menion about existing points (and I would still like to see a switch "Auto-Recalculate On/Off" in the track editor).
Anyway, we found a (kinda hidden) compromise: When only moving a single point, Locus will not touch its timestamp. So there's a slightly hidden possibility to edit without touching the timestamps.

Now my request concerns gaps: Currently, that recalculation also takes place across gaps. But I think you wil agree that gaps are there to separate different sections of a track. So assume we have the following points:
Currently, if you move points 1 and 2, the time difference between 2 and 3 will also be smoothed. The exact result of course depends on the actual location, but we might get something like 12:00:00 - 12:05:00 - 12:10:00. I think you'll agree that this is wrong.
So would it be possible to never let your recalculation "extend over" gaps? Even if you edit 1,2 and 3, points 2 and 3 are effectively end and start points of a section and should therefore keep their timestamps.
Agreed?

If you are currently recording a Track an do "a wrong thing" in Settings, your recording is destroyed. I just lost a day because I selected to clear temporary files. Locus wanted.to restart itself but only quit. When I manuallly restarted, the track recording for the whole day was gone.

Empty folders in "Map items" - cannot delete them. It allows to, but the folders stay.

If you delete a waypoint in a track within the trackmanager the waypoint does not disappear until Locus is restarted. I reported this bug some month ago but it still exists.

@Andrew Heard
- problem with linked presets is weird. As I see, this option was added in late 2019, so in your backup, this should be saved for sure.
- error message in route planner: thanks, I've created a task for it

@slarti76
complicated description, but clear. Thanks and agree, makes sense of course.

@joeloc
well, what to say. Why you deleted the "cache" directory during recording?  ??? This is really unusual, anyway, I may add a warning in such cases, just for sure. In the "cache" directory is stored currently recorded track that is, later after confirmation, stored into the database.

@tapio
thanks, got it (issue with empty directory in "map items")

@Christian
unfortunately I'm unable to simulate it. This happens also in track, created by the route planner, saved and then immediately edited?

@menion - FWIW backup/ restore were both using 3.48; not a restore from an early 2019 backup file. That's OK.

To avoid confusion: the problem belongs to waypoints in track details:
(https://docs.locusmap.eu/lib/exe/fetch.php?media=manual:user_guide:tracks:tracks15.png)
And its indepenent of route planner, time or editing.

Even after many years of Locus, it wasnt obvious to me that anything I change in Settings could destroy a current track. I was just playing around because I was bored. Had no idea "cache" is holding the recording.

I mean... not even a monsterous crash and phone reboot destroys the current track, Locus was always very good at that :).

Locus did, what it had been told, not what you had really wanted, as any good obedient computer does  :-)

while track recording,
if i click the blue round + button in recording window > "add point" > save
now i reopen this point > attachement > + > take a photo
i get this  ambiguous warning message althought the photo is stored

BTW:
the naming of "T" has a double date e.g.
T_20201004_131537_Punkt_1_20201004_131805.jpg

naming of "P" is ok

@joeloc
understand. Well, now you know ... Locus Map during recording store all data "immediately" into the cache directory and only in the moment, you tap "save", the whole track is saved directly into the database.

@balloni55
and it's the same reason as I wrote above to joeloc. The message is correct but does not make too much sense here. To be true, I'm surprised that editing of waypoints of the current recorded track is possible ... and works. To be true, this is more than an untested/forgotten feature and intent :).

Will there be a 3.49.xx topic? I really like to read about the changes before installing/updating/  or am I the only one who does not do automatic updates. Espescially never before a hiking holiday!

There were some unexpected troubles with publishing at end of the week (Google declined a new version due to already fixed security problems). And thanks to this, I've completely forgotten to publish news ... thanks, fixed: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7138 ;).
