Thx. Super minor - I think the line of the selected trackpoint should look different from the currently selected chart place. Maybe the line of the first one thinner/more transparent. Nitpicking.

In Locus Map 4 v4.2.0, the problem of invisibility when overlaying certain vector maps has been resolved
thank you so much Menion

Hi there,

I have a problem exporting geocaches that contain corrected coordinates in GSAK. They are placed correctly in the map but they are missing the original coordinates and the icons don't have the small red star in the upper right corner. In previous version 4.1 it worked fine. Anyone else with the same issue?

Since this version the direction instructions are automaticly in english.
I can see it on the map: directions are stored under left, right ...
All other commands are spoken in my choosen language.

Can I influence this ... ?

@VelkyVezir
I'll need more info here. Do you have a problem with the export or import of caches with corrected coordinates into Locus Map? The best is to share exact steps to simulate this problem.

@jonny.blue
I'm not aware of any problem. What exactly you do? you plan a route using a Route planner? What router engine are you using? Also, what is the language set in the app or in the system (if same)?

I plan my routes directly in LM4 ... with brouter offline.
And that caused the problem: tried the same with LoRouter ... and instructions are build in my prefered language.

Example. I select 1 single geocache in GSAK, enter a fictional corrected coordinates and export as GPX v 1.0. I import this file into Locus Map. It is displayed at the corrected coords but the icon is missing the red star so one doesn't know if it's corrected or not. When I look into geocache details it doesn't show the original coordinates either...

My screen has always been blocked since 4.2. I give it freely through whisk but if I turn off the screen and turn on again, he is locked again.
I have not changed at the settings. With 4.2.1 the problem is still available.

Well, if you're looking for stuff to do, I'll take the oppourtunity and ask again for an improvement of map shading: We discussed this before, currently the map shading (hill shading) in Map Level 12 is much more detailed than in Level 13 (easy to see). You justified that with speed considerations, but that was years ago, phones are much faster. And I would be fine with an expert setting "Less detailed map shading from level X", so the user could decide for themselves whether their phone is fast enough for which level.
It's just a shame that your algorithm produces such good shading up to level 12 and then it's all a blur...

The screen is still locked after switching on again. Already written here. I also opened a ticket.
The main menu was not visible with me and when opening the Map Content Panel, there was no content. Now it goes again. But I can not tell what I did exactly.
What is permanent: When opening the track manager, the system panel are visible below.

I don't know if it's a good place but I'm using version 4.2.1, that's why I describe the problem here.

At the request of your fb, I updated the file for voice commands in Polish.
Commands from the pl.tts file are not read during navigation mode.

After updating the file, I wanted to test it, the commands are still the same as before the file was uploaded. For example, the message about being lost from the route while navigating should be "Trasa w odległości %D2 na %N3 godzinie", unfortunately "%D1 na %N2 godnia" is spoken. The message is incomplete and grammatically incorrect.

I checked if the pl.tts file was seen by LocusMap (I put an error in the file on purpose, an error message in the file was displayed when starting the application). So I don't suspect the file is in the wrong place. My path is / Locus / data / tts / (see lokalizacja_pliku.jpg).

TTS Polish version is set everywhere in the application settings. (see ustawienia.png).

I am also enclosing the pl.tts file

The problem with the locked screen is solved.
I saw another register next to the home at Tasker. There were then different active profiles in it. One was a screen lock. I suspect that the update of the Locus Tasker Addon was activated. I've never laid out there. Now the problem of June is gone (menu opens in speech recognition).
I all have disabled profiles in this tab.

I hope I'm in the right place to tell you about my difficulties.

I am using version 4.2.1 and when I download maps from the French lGN base, it takes an extremely long time, much longer than before. I haven't downloaded for over six months. It takes more than thirty (30!) Hours of download for a card of around 2 GB.

My internet line is not in question, I checked its speed. I also checked the download speed on another app which also has an IGN subscription and everything is going as usual: about 15 minutes of download for a map of about 2 GB.

What can I do ? is this an app bug? is this a temporary problem?

Thank you for your help

I like the new effect in the beta on Android 9, where the map peeks through behind the system's top- and bottom panels.

On other screens with a white background, the content doesn't peek through the bottom panel, and the system buttons are almost invisible.  So I aim for "back" by memory of where it should be.  No big deal, and maybe it's something not under your control.

"This is not possible" > what is not possible?

@WujTom
firstly, thanks for participation on TTS files update, appreciate it!
My quick check: were you using the latest EN TTS file (https://github.com/asamm/locus-map-tts-commands/blob/master/src/main/assets/tts_commands/en.tts)? If so, then definitely update the version to the latest "8" in the head of the file!

@fraben
Hi, I'm checking speed of IGN servers and in my case, app downloaded 500MB/hour, so it should be 4 hours in your case. Not sure where was problem. Slow internet connection? Temporary slowdown on the IGN server? Hard to say, sorry. Btw. did you tried any vector maps like LoMaps, OpenAndroMaps and or any other? It may save you a lot of space and time ...

@Viajero Perdido

4.2.1.1: run LM4 > opened track recording panel totally blank (!) - see attached
exit LM4 > run LM4 > track recording panel "normal" > close panel > record a track > open panel to save track > totally blank again > exit & save track
run LM4 later > same blank panel
:
run LM4 later > can no longer reproduce this blank panel (!)

I have never seen this issue before or since, and have no explanation. Everything else is "normal" and nothing else has changed since I installed 4.2.1.1.

PS - another track recording later in the day - same sorts of issues. I paused the recording at one point. When I attempted to resume, the panel was again blank. Workaround was to exit LM4/ restart.

Working with the current version does not work. The menu is always missing. Map Content Panel is empty. In the route planner the field was completely empty when saving.
I'm going on vacation tomorrow and need the version before that.
In general, it would be good if a version was made available before the current beta. In the event that the beta causes problems.

Thank you for your reply !
As I told you, the loading time of the same maps with another app that Locusmaps took me a usual time, close to the one you mentioned.
I need the IGN maps because many paths are not shown on the other maps.

But another thing, concerning sync:
I was on tour this weekend, away from mobile networks and certainly WiFi. I have my Sync set to "WiFi only", still I noticed that Locus was trying to sync (animated circle, notification about sync that didn't run). Even when I had WiFi turned off!
Maybe has to do with Airplane Mode? I'm turning that on and off again regularly (sometimes I do get mobile connection), so perhaps after turning it off again Locus might get confused? Because in "normal" life (when I don't have WiFi all the time), I can't remember that happening...

@freischneider
hmm, sorry to read this. Does it happen on your S8 device? What Android version?
The previous version is a regular public version that is now uploaded on the Google Drive disk.

@slart76
Probably the app tried to perform a sync, but because of missing wi-fi, the sync task was stopped. It is expected behavior right? So confusion is from the fact, that app even tried to do a sync?

@ADiet
anything special about these tracks that may find out why this happens? What happens when you tap on any of these tracks?

Yes. I mean, I don't care about that rotating circle, but getting a "sync not finished" in the notification center that I have to click away, even though I wanted it that way, is quite annoying.

This is a stupid problem of current testing of Beta versions where only a single Locus Map 4 may be installed on the device, hmm :/.

What to do with it? I've already tested maybe 8 devices and emulators and nothing like this happens to me, weird. Maybe send me backup of your settings (created over backup manager) if you find a minute during a vacation (if you still have this problem). But you probably re-installed the app with the latest public version right?

good point. I'll try to improve it in the next version, thanks.

Hi Menion, also with LM4 4.2.1, the nightmare of tracks not properly concluding continues.
First "save" will save into the tracks.db and does export to SD - properly.
But then the track is not stopped, but continues recording. After Android kill Locus (swipe up), restart, then 2 or 3 exit&stop, Locus finally goes into non-recording state. Leaving two additional copies in the database, plus a copy from another export.
I know you cannot reproduce, and for me this error hits randomly, maybe 50% of track recordings.
Can you pls. tell me what the exact condition is after Locus (re-)start (even Android reboot)  so that Locus "thinks" it is still recording?
It must be SOMEWHERE in persistent memory (db or file), as even a reboot does not help (I tried this weeks ago).
TXs and cheers
Michael

@menion - further testing: all foreground apps killed, phone not restarted during testing, single 6km walk with new track started each ~500m, exit/ restart LM4 if track recording panel is blank. Nothing is 100% repeatable, just more/ less likelihood of blank panel occurring. Track recording is auto-started.

EDIT: new version *MapGooglePlay_4.2.1.2_1023_beta* with "white-panels fix" available!

@Andrew Heard and others on A8-
I've noticed the exact same issue with the white side content panel (or recording panel) on my Samsung S7 and also once missing content in the bottom panel. Seems to be some issue in Android so time to search for a hack ...

---

A little later: btw. thanks for the precise testing and report. The blank panel should be solved now. Problem with duplicated tracks after recording happened to me once or twice as well ... still no idea how this may happens, sorry. Does it happen always to you?

@michaelbechtold
weird. Track recording is made into file(s) stored in the Locus/cache/track_rec directory. These data should be deleted in the moment, track is correctly saved into the database. There is no reason why this should not happen in the case, data are correctly saved and also exported, hmm.

You may only try to create a bug report by the old method after this failure happens. There may be visible some error .. maybe.

@WujTom
I've asked twice because the file you shared with us in your post (https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7438.msg64280#msg64280) had version 4!

Anyway, please use (for example) this tool: https://jsonlint.com . JSON is very sensitive to incorrect syntax and in your file exists 4 small issues ... thanks.

I've asked twice because the file you shared with us in your post (https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7438.msg64280#msg64280) had version 4!

Anyway, please use (for example) this tool: https://jsonlint.com . JSON is very sensitive to incorrect syntax and in your file exists 4 small issues ... thanks.

I corrected the file. I tested it on the way to work this morning and it looks ok.
I attach the file here, and I suggested changing to GitHub.

Will the pl.tts file be delivered with the installation or will it always have to be uploaded manually?

If manually, can I share the file on several Polish forums where users use Locus?

@ADiet
anything special about these tracks that may find out why this happens? What happens when you tap on any of these tracks?
—------



I can't get these tracks visible, but only in my Inlineskating folder. If I want to see the details and tap on the track in the list, locus crashes. But if I see the statistics of one track, you can see it.

thanks!! I've updated the translation in the public repository (https://github.com/asamm/locus-map-tts-commands/commit/2020a7da669bb6aaaaf2389d191a9bc39230291a). It will appear automatically in the next app version, no manual update necessary.

@Tapio
ah thanks, I'm stupid. I've added these three options into the list of supported options, but not into UI picker. Fixed!

@ADiet
oki, so I'll need you "Users ID" to find more info about the crash. It is possible, it won't be enough and I'll probably need your database file, but hope not  :). Thanks.

@Menion: Hi Menion, today I had one successful track recording closure and one with infinite loop.
And I had a look into the cache directory you mentioned:
- both, the export file was properly stored, and
- the track was put into the database (checked with LMP, while LM4 was in infinite loop)
- and two files stayed in that cache directory: track_0.lb (47 kB) and track_breaks_0.lb (4 B), both with timestamps from my closing the track.
Then I killed LM4 via Android swipe, moved the two files away and restarted. And LM4 still ended up in an infinite loop - AND it created a new track_0.lb (8 B).
Hence the information about a "recording" track must be somewhere else, too, beyond the existence of the file(s) in the cache directory.
Another round of stop, delete cache file and restart made LM4 behave.
What I also observed: when I installed the very latest Beta today and started LM4, the boot sequence paused a bit around 11%, then rushed to 65% or so and soon after LM4 showed the map.
After the hard stop(s), though, the restart CRAWLED from 11 to 24, ...., 65% or so, then as above, taking MUCH longer. There was NO change in map setup inbetween.
So, again, there must be a weird trigger inside LM that makes this difference to the worse.
I hope those observations will help cornering the error ...
Good luck and kind regards
Michael

Hi Menion,
today i recorded a new track with the latest beta version. Unfortunately I can't save it, locus crashes. Then I paused it and deinstalled LM4.
After installation of the stabil version 4.2.1 I was able to save the recorded track. And after putting my backup settings in locus all settings except the folders were OK. I modified the folders to the SD card, as before.
Now the track folder has the normal behavior.

I am very happy that locus function in the normal way again.

And I don't want to have such a problem again.

@michaelbechtold
Damn, this seems to be weird ...

"Swipe" in the list of recently active apps, does not always have to completely kill the app, so do not rely on this!

Slowdown during the start > there should be visible some text, why is app paused. Maybe it waited on finishing automatic backup, maybe it was stuck for a while by testing filesystem permissions, there is really a lot of tasks that happen and if the device is busy with some other tasks at this moment, it may take a few seconds more ...

Only what I may do about recording, is adding some more logs to the app. So in the next Beta (tomorrow), please enable the "Logs to file" option in the hidden menu (long tap on the main menu) and after this problem happens, send me the last log where should be more info, thanks.

@ADiet
hmm, I do not see any crash for your ID  :-\

Hello
I'm trying to get some order in my tracks and routes and have therefore created several folders in which I want to sort. Now happens regularly that I mark 5, 6 or some more tracks, and suddenly -zack- the window closes and in am back on the home page of LM. This has happened to me about 10 times.

Known?

Never happened to me.

What exactly are you doing...? Select tracks (checkboxes to the left) after longtap? Or showing tracks via the eye symbol?
To consider: single tap on the map square to the left of any track shows track on map instantly.

Seems that the QR code is correct, just Google Lens has some problem.

@Žajdlík Josef
do you have downloaded offline LoMaps for this area? The address is filled only from the offline database.

@Joska
Maybe explanation: when you change anything in points/tracks, within 30 seconds should be done synchronization with the server. When it is done, it should refresh content in the app and also content in the data manager. Maybe just in this moment, you are in this screen. Is it possible?

I am using eight maps. I often add objects to them and I need frequent map updates for control. I will try to add Lomaps to the map folder. Must be Lomaps active to record work or just have them on your phone?

It is enough to have them in the downloaded folder. The app will detect its presence automatically when searching for an offline address source.

hello menion
today i was geocaching for the first time with V 4.2.1.2, but i can't say if this behavior exists for a longer time.
i am on a multi cache with several waypoints, open a waypoint via the listing and select guide on.
Arrived at this waypoint I want to go back to the waypoint list via the guide on panel using the 3-dot button ( GC...).
- with LM4 the listing is shown and I have to navigate cumbersome to the waypoints again.
- with LMP it is very well solved and locus opens me immediately, as desired the waypoint list.

This could be, time-intervalls could be nearly 30 seconds, but I would expect to find me back on same screen, not pushed away from track-list, track&route-manager.

Some tests....yes,  first I'd select aoprox. 10 tracks,  pushed them to the folder "Planung", took the next tracks from collected list and after nearly 30 seconds, I was dropped out. So I think, it is an result of syncronization.

do you mean like common search for an address or your point? What about a) long-click on the "+" button or "menu > add point"?

@balloni55
I know I know. The method is the same in both versions and this is a problem. In the old Pro version, it simply opens the cache screen with the latest tab > waypoints. In the new LM4, it displays cache as a small bottom popup. Is this really incorrect? It does not look so to me to be true ... one additional click to display list of waypoints.

In the latest beta, the Cloud Sync screen (the one with "Manual sync" title), the status section is partly cut-off.

On my phone, there's only one line, "Automatic Sync: Enabled"
On my tablet, half of the next line is also visible.

Time of last sync (now missing) is useful to know...  Thanks.

@Menion - after a bit more testing - double tap can unhide panels, but next double tap does not hide panels. I tried this for my "hack" 99,999s but also 5s. I note @tapio had no problems. Settings attached.

PS. I really like the new feature (finally) of tapping the active track recording to see track stats.

Finish with 2 times back is not possible.

It's not specifically beta related, but thought I'd share it here rather than as a Help topic. Assume wireless data is enabled, but SRTM height data is missing while in the Route Planner, LM conveniently asks & downloads the required data, with standard progress circle/ Notification Center - that's nice. But if wireless data is unknowingly disabled there is no indication of such until you exit from the Route Planner. Can this simple inconvenience be improved? It just needs the standard progress circle/ Notification Center to still be displayed so the error message can be viewed.

the new version 4.3.0 is finally published. Enjoy it. And thanks for the help of course!
Let's continue in discussion in the new topic here: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7496.0

@slarti76
Also a problem, I'm unable to simulate it. You test it on the "Galaxy Tab" right?

@luce
I'm still unable to simulate the same problem, funny :). Will be watching it ...

@fresichneider
Are you sure you have the latest Beta? Weird. Please check the newly published version. I hope, there won't be such problem.

@Andrew Heard
Problem with double tap - check new version.

Missing "info button" > it is same as this button visible on the main map > only if there is some progress. I've updated it so it should now be visible also in case of any problem.
