hello menion
if all templates are deleted and also the leading blank space
the description is displayed, which does not disappear when the templates are set again.
After reopening this window, the problem is solved.

@Žajdlík - I was unable to reply to your last post from 4.3 topic. I agree your "{t} <from> <to>" looks fine, but I just feel a more generic {t} as a default setting is more universal. I have 2 friends I've recently introduced to Locus, and even though pretty tech savvy, they still find LM4 a little overwhelming to get started, and find hidden features I am using. I don't see any easy way around this except for some very advanced AI that can make expert recommendations - maybe LM7 in 10 years time?

I would suggest a new name template {T} = YYYYMMDD-HHMM. This would mean multiple recorded tracks on same day have a unique name, and can be properly sorted alphanumerically - {t} = YYYYMMDD.

@menion - recording profile > track name format: {t} is described, but how does any user discover the other pre-defined tags? Maybe a (?) button at right side of "pre-fill format" textbox brings up list of tags?

Andrew, my reaction was on long record names. I just wanted to show it's not so bad. The "Add" button was added in the last version. See SCR. Entering is easier.

Hello
Is there anyone else who would like a search button in the planner?
Maybe with the results sorted by geographic proximity to the center of the screen / cursor

I just tried out the new "naming preset" for recordings. The preview obviously uses my current location, which renders to "Zurich (Zürich)". As I'm not going somewhere else in the next few days: What is in the parentheses? If it's the (Swiss) canton/state/subdivision: Please remove that, there's rarely a need and it makes the name very long. If it's English + Local language: Either decide on one or offer additional variants. I don't think it's needed in more than a few cases where both differ very much.

Hi,
thank you for the new features. The sensor manager is something new, but now my cadence sensor Cycplus C2 7648 is not working any more. How should I adjust this in the sensor manager? It works with BT.

I like the new diatance markers, but when I tried them I got a markers at roughly double the diatance of the previous marker. I'm using imperial units, if I switch to metric units it works as expected. See attached metric vs imperial distance markers.

Ps: would be good to have imperial markers every mile rather than conversions of 1 km to miles...

@balloni55
thanks. I see the problem in the editing of the track names on my own device as well. Consider as fixed ...

@T-mo
option to define the type of activity for already created recording profiles is not possible. You have to create a new recording profile. Some really old profiles (maybe 5+ years) do not have set an activity. Maybe because of this, some of you did not get proper value in the track name. You are using Locus Map just too long :)

@lor74cas
Search system needs a big update > big plan on the Q1/Q2 of 2022. And in the route planner? You may partially use search over menu > Add point, or the long click on the "+" button.

@slarti76
I also get "Prague (Praha)" for my location. I'll look at it.

@Christian
75% of height? There should be a reason for this. This should happen if you use screen rotation & navigation. When rotation is disabled, it should be at 50% as expected.

@ADiet
What exactly means "is not working..."? It does not work over ANT+, but works over BT4?

@karlchick
ah, this is definitely a bug, thanks. I'll look at it.

To avoid misunterstanding: 75% of height means 25% below the top of the display. There was no rotation nor navigation active.
We will try to repeat the mystic behaviour the next time in the field.

Today with the new version 4.4.1 the Bluetooth connection with the cadence sensor is now working. Yesterday with the version 4.4. it couldn't be connected.

The ANT+ connection is not possible at my smartphone. I don't know why. I have installed the apps of ANT+.

Sorry. Perhaps I have done a wrong setting.

A remark on the distance markers: can't you prevent the "+" markers to be part of the point simplification? They are already simple and it would be better for track oberview, if they don't mix up with simplified waypoints.

Menion, why don't you feel the itch to put some analysis functions into Locus? The stuff which is in good old gpstrackanalyse.net? Like: Find and mark (on tracks) vmax, hmax, hmin, pause>n minutes... I mean you could sell a plugin and get rich instantly 😁
Or an algorithmic thing like "align track to paths/roads".
Or minimize # of trackpoints...
This kind of stuff. Because on Android, Locus is the best solution to edit/manage other peoples tracks.

As for Pause (no movement) detection. I know algorithmic it is not as simple as it seems, but Locus must already have it coded because it is able to stop adding trackpoints while not moving.

So I guess an option to add Waypoints like "Pause @ {t}: mm:ss" shouldn't be too far away.

Distance markers are improved now, thanks, best Locus we've ever had.

Maybe the Distance Markers are a bit conservative at times. A bit. In my screenshot I use no magnification. Locus could display the uneven markers, the 9km marker here.

As for Pause (no movement) detection.
@tapio I'm hoping internal accelerometer will be used some time in the future for "no movement detection". Far more reliable than current GPS location method. Plenty of apps already use this for an "alarm". As far as I can tell, some Garmin GPS have used this method for a long time. Fellow riders with Garmin GPS beep nearly instantly they stop, whereas the Locus track can show constantly moving position +/-7m.

So I guess an option to add Waypoints like "Pause @ {t}: mm:ss" shouldn't be too far away.
+1 nice idea - add a Help suggestion for voting?

Yes, current "pause detection" is very unreliable depending on GPS quality and settings. Accelerometer would save us from a lot of "track wildly jumping around the same position" when making a pause...

I'm fully aware of the difficulties regarding GPS and non-movement detection. I still have that itch to code it in Tasker (which then can pass over WPs to Locus). Here's a good algorithm discussion: https://www.cbs.nl/-/media/_pdf/2020/01/stop-and-go-detection-in-gps-position-data.pdf

What I already have is detecting pauses by using the shake sensors. It's nightmare tasks... Works pretty reliable in hiking though. Obviously wouldn't work well on bike or in car. The only problem is, a pause is detected after it happened, so WPs are a bit off. With the intent it is not possible to add a WP to a user def. position in Locus.

Hmmm, Accelerometer, this is what I use in Tasker. It IMO only helps in use cases where the device is "shaken". Not if it is evenly moving on, e. g. when lying on a car seat.

Post by: Andrew Heard on October 01, 2021, 09:54:48
Sounds to me like Tasker would be consuming quite a lot of battery to process these simple situations of moving/ stopped.

shake sensor = Accelerometer = compass - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accelerometer

Obviously wouldn't work well on bike or in car
@tapio - no reason why not if properly coded

Were my thoughts as well. But: No, negligible. The trigger (here: Event - Shake - Left/Right) doesn't consume much, the triggered code is lightweight. My device consumes 40-50% Battery on my 5-6h hiking trips and that didn't noticably change.

Post by: tapio on October 01, 2021, 10:44:57
You just made me look at Tasker again. There's not just the shake sensor (which only detects shakes, ie left/right, up/down etc.) but "Any sensor", which allows proper accelerator access. Looks like I'll rework it again...

@tapio
hehe, I'm wanting basic analytics features for ages, at least some core stats "activity from date - to date" etc. Well, time is not my friend last year  :'(

What is the zoom level of the currently visible map in your #20? It looks to me like some 15/200%. For zoom 15, the interval is 2km, for 16+ it is 1km.

@Andrew Heard
internal accelerometer (better "Google Activity recognition) or connected speed sensor. I already have this partially coded, just need some fine-tunning.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 4.4.+ ( 23. 9. 2021+ )
Post by: tapio on October 01, 2021, 12:01:11
It was 14. 2km happens until ZL14 and 113% pinched zoom. Imo it could already use 1km at ZL14/80% but that's probably debatable.

Tasker and the sensors:
https://youtu.be/766S-KRnaiE
A lot that users can use here. It's all about processing and reasonable evaluation of the numerous numbers which are spit out by the sensors.

@tapio - interesting, thanks. I'm using ~2.5%/h (= 15%/6h) with 3000mAh (3Ah) battery (all other apps off, no mobile, only track recording, no navigation), and certainly wouldn't want much increase for constant sensor processing code. For simple movement detection, a check every 1 or 2s would be more than adequate resolution.

Hello Menione, for point position sharing missing option: Send screenshot. This can only be sent via the Share function. See SCR. It's a shame when you need to send a map using MMS.

Post by: tapio on October 06, 2021, 10:20:52
Menion, it has been mentioned before, there is inconsistencies in tap zones when it comes to points.

In screenshot, when I tap zone 1), it continues with point detail screen. It should do that only on 2) imo.

Everywhere else in the app, on tapping 1), it instantly displays (tracks) on map AND goes there. Which it should do here as well.

Btw., reasonable performance on big offline Geonames file: http://download.geonames.org/export/dump/allCountries.zip
Unpacked 1.4 GB, I was expecting Locus to crash, but I get results after 18 seconds, so it is usable.

I have a suggestion for offline Geonames. The window should pre-select the country file depending on map center, if it exists.

Hi Menion,
I tried to get a screenshot of the ANT+ message, but it disappears so fast, that you can't get a screenshot.

But it means, that there is no ANT+ on my device. Although I had tested it with the ANT+ tester. But now with the latest version of Locus I changed my sensor and used BT, so I don't need the ANT+ connection. Perhaps it is not possible on my XZ2 compact.

@Žajdlík Josef
hmm, but you can simply solve this by a quick "Share" button on the main screen. I'm not sure if this is really a problem. Sharing the screenshot of a single point seems a little weird to me. Isn't it a lot easier to use for example sharing over Google Maps URL or a new URL to our web portal (first option)?

@tapio
there will be a big re-work of the whole search system in next year, really. I believe the whole UI will be redesigned and simplified ... thanks for understanding.

@ADiet
ah, ok.

@Žajdlík Josef
understand but do not agree. A list of options is created based on "point" or generic "share", so this option is not the only difference.

Nice one about the splitting of centering/rotation button. Easier to understand for newbies. I'd make it the default. Also, with GPS off and in dual button mode, there is no simple way to have the map rotate.

Lovely transition from the rotate/north mode.

I think the solution with the turn button is great. The operation is much more logical. Since I almost always turn it on anyway, I don't mind if it is visible when it is switched off.
Of course, it is now not easy to see whether it is activated or whether the position happens to be north. Tip: if pointing north, a red line through the compass needle.

Fading out completely may be good for people who only use one setting. However, this function is of no use to most. The free positioning of buttons (menu, compass needle, centering, map content panel) would be a great thing. Is that very difficult to do? I had already written the suggestion when I was developing LM4.

@schugur
Still not working ... really weird. My sensor is already in order and hopefully, next week will be delivered. I'm just worried it will work without any serious problem because I have already reported positive results from many sensors.

If it is an easy task for you, you may give a try to latest Beta and create a log by the app for me. There were a lot of changes since the last third log you made. Or just wait till my sensor will be finally tested and I'll let you know. Thanks for the patience.

@tapio
separate control of visibility for the rotation button > too early for this request. Firstly, I need to validate that this option makes sense :). Anyway even after it prove useful, I do not think that it is necessary.

@freischneider
I'll think about separate icons to distinquish three possible states > disabled, manual rotation, automatic rotation. Thanks
Free positioning of buttons ... heh, funny :)

@starka
no, it is not possible.

@balloni55, @tapio
crash at the start ... hmm, thanks to automatic logs it looks like a problem in incorrectly wrote animated rotation system. I tried to fix it in new generated 4.4.3.3 version so give it a try, thanks.

@freischneider
There was still a problem? Hmm, I was trying to solve some weird issues with not hiding the bottom navigation panel on some devices. But my attempt was not a success and I just changed the order of few system methods used in the full-screen system. Interesting it helped you ... this full-screen system is really weird now  :-\. Anyway thanks for the info.

The top right is too far away. Those who switch on and off more often should have it downstairs. That only makes sense if you don't change anything. But it could be to the right of the center button. I think it's pretty good downstairs. Although that's probably just a matter of habit.
There we are again at the free place. So everyone can push it where they want it.

I'm okay with the actual position of the compass button. For me, it is actually a button, not only a display of the orientation, that's why a position at the bottom of the map screen definitely makes sense.

But, another issue, i noticed a strange behaviour of the map orientation when tapping the compass button while moving, e.g. in a train...

And sorry if I warm up another old topic: The bottom and side bars are quite big using unnecessarily much map space while the zoom buttons that are used much more often are so small it happens repeatedly that I accidentally tap beside them.

I perfectly understand that bigger zoom buttons wouldn't look good, but is it maybe possible to make the surrounding transparent area touchable – to make the buttons in fact bigger without changing the look?

I'm just trying to solve few remaining issues with the sensors so on Google Drive is a new Beta version.

It also contains preparation for the icon badge for the rotation button. Currently, it is only a colored dot (grey - disabled, red - automatic, green - manual). Final icons are in preparation.

I Hope, this version also fixes the issue with rotation reported by @luce. Btw. there already is a transparent area around the zoom buttons that should prevent accidental taps on the map below. Seems you need an even bigger area  :).

It would also be possible to adjust the side buttons to be narrower and the transparent space expanding space? There are really enough space on small screens.

Bug? I add an embedded waypoint to an existing track - the waypoints icon is not shown.
Beta from yesterday.

EDIT: Ah, I remember, it is an old refresh issue, so not a big thing... I reported some time ago. After restart Locus or maybe only hide/show of track the icon is shown.

With "Dual centering button" on, it still shows both buttons when rotation is on, is that intended? You could turn the compass needle off, but rotate that small new icon around the big button.
Also, that extra marker on the compass button, is it useful there? 3 buttons/markers seem overload for me.

@Menion – what I meant was not to make the transparent area around the zoom buttons bigger, but make it functional, so that if you tap a little bit besides the + or the – button, the app still "understands" this as a tap on the + or – button.

The rotary knob was much better in the beta of 10/9/2021.
Rotary knob always displayed. Normally I don't want to fade in so much. But the operation is much more logical.
Click on the button: turn off
Click on the button: turn it on
Click on the button: turn off ... etc.
Now you have to press the centering button again to switch on turning. But it also happens that centering is switched off or switched on.

Or maybe not red/green/gray for the north part of the needle, because a red compass arrow is always associated with "north". Maybe instead change the colour of the south part of the needle. The three different colours don't have to be so strong that they leap to the eye – it could also be white, light grey and maybe a greenish gray, or something like that.

I also think markers are something that draw attention to something that happens less frequent like e.g. a map update – the information about the current compass mode should be more unobtrusive.
Title: Re: [APP] - version 4.4.+ ( 23. 9. 2021+ )
Post by: luce on October 13, 2021, 08:29:48
... I ask myself – is it really necessary to indicate the compass mode with different colours?

– When the map is turning, auto rotation is obviously turned on.
– When the map is not turning, a glance at the compass needle reveals the actual orientation. (If north is not up, I just tap the rotation button once to reset orientation.)

So for me, no additional indication needed.

Hi Menion, I don't want to talk to unfinished graphics, but the difference in the symbol location doesn't look very well. See SCR. Couldn't you use a color circle around the button instead of the dots? See CIRCLE1-2.

Post by: tapio on October 13, 2021, 10:30:29
My idea is:

a) No indicator if auto rotate is on or off is needed. It feels as useful as displaying "the screen is on".

b1) If dual button is OFF: show the compass needle button all the time. Make it default, it's good for newbies.

b2) If dual button is ON: On auto rotate state, do not show an extra button, but let a direction arrow float around the big button. Or put a needle inside the button and have it rotate. As Freischneider suggested.
Let's see it as a "pro mode". And the pros should know "top is north", so no need for a north marker if not auto rotating.

So many ideas because of three tiny colored dots  :)

@tapio
the issue with a refresh of the track: thanks TODO

With a dual centering button, rotate icon should really be visible, it is intent. With this solution, you may simply disable rotation without affecting centration.

If "dual-mode" needs an extra rotation button was discussed a half year ago a lot and yes, it needs  :).
Good sample: center, start rotating, move with the map - now disable rotation in case you do not have this "rotate" button.

@balloni55
ah, dot attached to centering button in case, rotation is disabled and dual-centering button is enabled, is a bug, thanks

@luce
ah, the clickable area behind ... not so simple task => is this really needed? I'm more thinking about and option to put these buttons into function panels - but this also is not so simple task  :-\

Rotation mode
I also think that icons should not be so obtrusive. Some small "A", "M", symbols should be enough. I'm waiting on our graphic.

But, the indicator is needed from my point of view. If the map rotates by the GPS, it may not be clear that rotation is enabled. Also if you start rotation of the map manually, it may not be clear that the map won't rotate by sensor anymore.

@Žajdlík Josef
thanks, as I wrote to @balloni55, the dot attached directly to the big centering button is a bug, thanks!

I like the new button/rotation setup :D. I understood that the right graphics are in creation, the current dots are only temporary..surely, dots wouldn't be useful at all.

Using RouePlanner and showing itinerary I am not always able to swipe the list away downside and thought better not use the top-left exit-arrow, as it would possibly END Route planner. Yes, it does not and behaves like swiping down and brought me back, hides the itinerary.
Is this also irritating to others?

Honestly I rarely use rotation..not sure though if with moved map rotation-button switchs itself off after 1x press to align north..I suppose most use-cases would be to check region ahead, view-direction, a bit left and right, maybe temporary change orientation to north,then back..so still on but view orientation changes

Version from yesterday not usable. Showing the map takes like a minute per screen. Tested with OAM Germany map and Lomaps Germany north after Android restart. Oh fortunately I am not out this weekend...
Unfortunately cannot downgrade without uninstall. Also, older beta not on Gdrive....

EDIT. Quick test, copied map to internal SD /storage/emulated/0/Android/data/menion.android.locus/files/Locus/mapsVector/

and used that. Same slowness!

Hi Menion,
I uninstalled the latest beta because it forced me to confirm the INTERNAL private /Android/data folder.
Although the external SD has 36 GB free space, while the internal SD has only 9 GB available.
The current /Locus consumes 41 GB - internal SD.

So, how would Locus act in detail in such a situation, ps?

In earlier betas it would complain about missing free space. But as I could not risk Locus beta damaging my current install, I went back to the beta before, which works fine.

Can you please advise?

TXs and cheers
Michael

PS: in particular, will Locus be able to MOVE the files from /Locus (good), or will you need to COPY them (very bad) ? Why? It doubles the space requirements and will block / disable future Locus use.

Yeah, details will be interesting. Fortunately I have already done it, I guess it was some mix of Locus doing it and me moving files with TotalCommander...
What you will have to do is put it into "private dir" on internal or secondary SD (/Android/data/..) at some point because Android 11... and you can store MapsVector and SRTM on both places.
This type of change will unfortunately eat tons of support resources... for ages I guess. Thx Google.

The About page on my phone (4.4.3) says in red, "DUPLICATE FOLDER"

Do I dare touch anything?

I haven't used any betas recently, but did get surprised one day by a question about folders.  Um, I dunno, click, go away.  Now this.  The new file system manager says I'm using internal storage, not internal memory.  (Internal vs internal?!?)  EDIT: investigation tells me that both are the same folder, aliased.  Is the end user expected to know about this?

But things are working (in spite of not "recommended" folder), so tell me, app, why should I change?

In the App the share gpx can download the gpx and you can send it to friends somehow

I talked about the share in the Web. This will create a url you can send to your friends. If you open that url you see the track on the map. I see no way to download a gpx. That's what I mean.

Sharing the track via URL is a nice modern way but today the possibilities with such a link is very limited. If would be nice if adding gpx download doesnt make much work.

@WujTom
a reminder is not necessary. I have added a task to my task list. Hmm maybe remind me a year later when this won't be done yet :).

@michaelbechtold
even a Beta forced you? I thought this is not yet public. Well, it will be in the next version for sure.

I've just modified how data are transferred and it will be moved one by one > so copy & delete every file. Previously it firstly duplicated the app directory and then deleted it. But there was a problem with huge directories and low disk space.

@Viajero Perdido
Duplicated folders are more a warning, not a real problem. The app always use previously used directory. Maybe check it with the next Beta if there still be this info and if yes, post me a screen so I may see a paths visible to you, thanks.

@Andrew Heard
you see these statistics for already saved tracks? They should be visible only a) during track recording or b) in case the track really contains these data.

To my surprise, the whole transfer is quite fast. I test it with my 30GB installation and it is done within a few minutes. I made it as a process that can't be stopped and also as a self-recovery process so when for some reason, it is interrupted, app will restore transfer immediately on next start.

Anyway access to any other directory, so for example, mapsVector in custom location is really a pain and for now, it is not doable.

Only what I was able to implement, also because I consider it as crucial, is the "backup" directory on the user-defined location.

What I also tried for some time is to allow "srtm" data on custom-defined location, but even I had partial success, I also ended on 2x worst performance. And this is a real problem for the map shading system ...

So for now, it is almost worst case with close to very small hope to be better ... sorry  :'(

I am having SRTM on the external card and noticed no performance problem in shading (the normal map shading, also the slope shading) at all. Please don't remove the possibility to use userdef places, our SRTMs may be quite huge (23G here).

TXs for the additional details, Menion.

I think you have to take the bull by the horns head-on!

The whole scoped storage thing is for the Instagram world, only good enough for images and videos.

All other big data sets suffer by deadly performance issues.

So, to summarize your (and similar apps) scenario:
- huge data sets
- random access needed (database and alike)
- shared between different apps
Forgot something?

If I were Asamm, I would create a dummy geo app with request for MANAGE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE, with above justification. Hence no danger to Locus itself, just for the battle with Google.

Quote from : https://support.google.com/googleplay/android-developer/answer/10467955#zippy=%2Cexceptions

Google Play may provide a temporary exception to apps that do not qualify as permitted use designated above, when;

    Use of the permission enables the app’s core functionality; and
    There is currently no alternative method to provide the core functionality; or

use of the privacy friendly alternatives (e.g., MediaStore API, or Storage Access Framework) has a substantially detrimental impact on the critical features of the app that are tied to the core functionality.

    The impact on user privacy is mitigated by security and privacy best practices

The developer must justify in their Console declaration why the Storage Access Framework or MediaStore API is not sufficient for their app’s purpose.

You can fulfil all three conditions. And if Google finally comes up with an enhanced framework that goes beyond Instagram (and alike) use cases, such exception can be ceeded. But not before!

Good luck and kind regards
Michael

New version "MapGooglePlay_4.4.3.14_1044_beta" just published under "New filesystem, A11+" sub-directory. Good luck everyone ... backup your data to be safe!!

@michaelbechtold
Based on our experience with Google, we give up the option to get full storage access. The problem here is, that Locus Map is perfectly fully working even without full access to the filesystem. Generally, there is no need for most of the cases, to access the rest of the file system directly. And this is a bullet-proof argument. Fact that advanced users suffer by this is the second side that will be perfectly ignored by Google, trust me.

If noone had ever tried the near impossible, we'd still climb on trees - without any maps :-)

And BTW: would your product FAMILY be able to use the stored maps across the board?
You have  LM4, LMP, and some GIS stuff, right?
Double or triple the maps for the same area - Google must be kidding to insist on such!

And sharing between multiple apps beyond is not an advanced user thing.

geocoded photos taken with a poi cannot be displayed as geocoded photos on the map, the folder Android/data.... is not selectable.

Furthermore, photos of these folder cannot be displayed by any gallery app that I know so far. ???

Until now I sync by time interval these photos to the external SD (no storage space problem) so I can display these photos as geocoded photos inside LM4 (path is selectable) as well as in my gallery app.

My idea, create an optional setting " save taken photos as duplicate on the ext SD

BTW
as a security measure, i first switched off the automatic update for LMP that is still installed directly on the SD card. ;)

They should be visible only a) during track recording
why visible if there is no sensor and no sensor data?

Last number in APK filename is no longer being incremented? Stuck on _1044.

@michaelbechtold
In case we never communicated with Google support, these should be definitely a try. But after 10+ years ... we know.
Sharing maps/srtm data between apps ... to be true, I really think that this is a geeky feature for us, people who communicate here about advanced features. 99% of app users don't care about this.

@Viajero Perdido
thanks for the test and precise report!!


@tapio
Till Android 10 (include), all should in the end work as before. Thanks for the confirmation.

@balloni55
work with attached photos has to be heavily re-implemented, I know. Fortunately, the system of attachments is so bad, that not many people use it, not many people miss full attachment sync and so I hope, it won't be a problem for now. In 2022 I'll focus on this together with improved "search" and write it better from scratch.

@Andrew Heard
Values are visible during recording because I can't be 100% sure if value "0" means - "such data does not exist" or "currently value is 0".

Yes, the APK value is stuck on 1044. Why? You may easily update the version from the lower value to higher or from same to same. But! you can't downgrade from higher to lower. In this case, you have to un-install the app. So I generate a Beta version with the same ID as long as the downgrade is compatible. So in case of any problem, you may easily restore the previous Beta version.

And thanks for the update test!

To clarify...  After moving directories, the files left behind in Locus/mapsOnline were named LoMaps_Hike&Bike.*, with sizes 443kb, 340kb, and 32kb.
I believe that was from the map that was shown by default after the move (during the move?), and the smallish file sizes would reflect a single screen of tiles.  I immediately switched back to my usual vector maps and re-selected the theme.

Selecting other online maps afterward does NOT add more files to this folder.

EDIT:  It also seems to have forgotten the selection for a pre-loaded global map.  But I was able to re-select it manually.

To be true I didn't followed the discussions. Maybe that was the point to find a problem.

Locus showed Directory needs to be moved screen. Then it did something for some seconds. Asked if I want to use custom or private folder. Bec I didn't follow the discussions I pressed question mark on second option.
After this I pressed question mark on first (gray out) option.
Locus stuck for longer time. App close dialog showed up and Locus restarted.

Locus stuck happened on second try. But now I pressed first question mark directly after selection pops up.

What is weird for me is that Locus does something after pressing "change directory". And after 20(?) seconds it asked for the target to move to.
What it does before without knowing the target folder?
Not a big point. Just a bit weird from customer perspective.

@Menion - it's not of real concern to me, but I would have thought there is a clear distinction between A) a sensor has not been enabled so no value has been read (maybe return value is NaN instead of 0.0), then no need to display it's statistic; and B) a sensor value of zero has been read.

You may easily update the version from the lower value to higher or from same to same. But! you can't downgrade from higher to lower.

Well ... this is in the app since begin and I never felt it is necessary to solve it. This page is visible only during recording when you directly display current track statistics.

@Menion Correct. Be patient works.

I'm still a bit confused about the process. In the selection directory dialog it looks like the first is a selection option bec it has a circle, too. But it's the old directory which you can't choose.

Then after I successfully moved to private dir and restarted App it asked for the directory again. Now the internal story was choosable. Even all the files were moved to private dir before the restart.

I was like a customer and selected internal (empty) folder.
Then my Map was replaced to locus hike and theme switched. I think it was the case bec old locus dir was empty.

I would suggest to redesign the dialog before the move and don't ask after restart.

Btw:  Why you need to calculate free space?
Maybe it's just enough to check if internal and private dir is on same volume. If this is the case (and it will be the case in most smartphones) you need to check if there is enough space to move the largest file. Bec largest file size is unknown I guess to check for just 3-4 GB is a good value.

Menion, I found that "Overwrite exported data" is severely flawed, if turned on.

Situation: I've got 1700 tracks in one folder, after export there is only ~1300 files on SD. ?!

The overwrite option is useful for not creating dupl. files, BUT! I guess you forgot the situation which I witnessed and I think is the case.

Let's say you have many tracks in one folder, which share the same track title. This is easily the case when dealing with tracks from different devices, or tracks imported from multi-track GPX files.

With same titles, only the last exported track will be on SD. Because I think Locus derives export file names from titles.

problem with the overwrite of tracks ... well, is it really a problem of Locus? :). Maybe. Suggestion? Name is usually the best value to clearly specify a track. After maybe 10 years of export option, you are the first. Isn't just possible to solve this unique problem by for example exporting all into single file?

Maybe the export option "Overwrite files" is usually not turned on. Of course there is workarounds, one gpx would work, but the problem is a nasty one, people may not realize the loss of data.

Locus says "Exported 1600 tracks" and user may not notice there is just 1300 files. People may rely on re-import (personally I've done that often) and then have silently lost tracks.

The track name is just not unique. I think Locus should populate a list of export file names beforehand. Then resolve collisions before writing files. Add indexes maybe on collisions. It's really bad that it overwrites files which it has created in the same export run. I'm sorry, I always put stuff on your monstrous pile of work. 😁

User id 1aacaff2a2, I will try to find the cause of import crash, maybe find limits... EDIT: Not yet found a cause. Happens pretty much at ~1004 import files.

Major: (close to) final V1 version of the new file system for A11+ devices. Transfer of root directory should be now 100% reliable no matter if it's terminated in the middle or any problem happens.

Custom directory anywhere on the device is now supported only for the "backup". Other options need a lot more test and we may discuss it later.

Offline Places in the search menu:

While it is good that it is in the search menu, it is not good that it directly comes up with a search field instantly. I can feel it's easy and intuitive if there is only one poi db. But it uses the last used one initially. Which can be any poidb from all over the world. Maybe you can make Locus pick a poidb depending on map center.

At least the Lopoints(offline) command from the toolbar should not start with the "All points" search field.

Offline places ... this is small addition added on the push from @Michal. Anyway as I play with it, it seems to me quite useful. In most cases, you use the same country again and again and in the worst case, the back key returns you to this list of databases. Diss-advantage is that there is no clear indicator, which country file is currently active for search ... hmm  :o

Hi Menion,
I conclude from earlier remarks that for LM4 and LMP and Locus GIS - all from your company - you would have to triple the amount of data. Maps, SRTM, everything.
And maps (both vector and raster) are currently shared between completely different apps.
In the future multiplying the amount of data???

triple data for LM Pro, LM4 and Locus GIS is correct, but this will probably never happen right? a) use cases for these apps are different and b) also with this change, I do not expect, many people will use Locus Map Pro and Locus Map 4 at once. Why anyone wants to do it when no data (points, tracks, ...) will be shared now.

@LocusUser#1
XML files only? Interesting. I have many custom themes and custom online maps and during testing, I never lost a single item. May you please double-check that these files are missing?

@0709
correct. The same limitation applied since Android 5.0 on the SD card is now applied also on the internal memory. It was expected and my surprise is that it took so long.

And yes, sharing of the maps as you use now, so direct sharing of a single directory, won't simply be possible now. There will be some exceptions, but do not expect much from it. Is it really a problem? SD cards are huge, same with internal memory of devices ...

Problem is, you go into the offline places to add some POI from specific categories. Now the first step always is to go back from the overall search. I would remove the initial overall search when approaching the dialog from the toolbar.

Yes. Menion, I explained the danger. User will be OK at first look with "overwrite data" because he thinks it just overwrites old with new versions. But user cannot see that Locus overwrites files created in the same export run - and so he gets less export files than tracks. Say 1000 same named tracks, 1000 different named. Will give you 1001 gpx files. In such a scenario data can silently get lost without noticing.

@tapio - shaping points correctly restored for me (although just recent route, not days before)
is the problem also there for recent route?
Very rarely. Problem is, this issue happens since many versions, but rarely and I can not find a hint why. I have reported it once but it does not seem to be a common problem. What's special about those tracks etc., not yet seeing a reason.

Thanks for the feedback guys. Just for your info, we have a personal meeting in Prague + some other important tasks, so excuse my later response (not sure if I'll have time to fix/answer everything by end of this week). Thanks for understanding  :)

With me, losing of shaping points happens in 75% of the cases in which I mix a routing profile with manual lines. Thats why I avoid using manual lines whenever possible. I also can't find a rule behind it, but it doesn't seem to have to do something with time. Often, I save a new route, then try to open it again because I want to change something, and all shaping points are gone.

@tapio
Lost shaping points is a random but more or less regular problem for me.
This year I always close Locus after route planning (and save track). At least this year no lost points.
Don't know if this was just luck.

Can totally find no rule behind it. Not related to straight lines here mostly. Looked through my "Planned" folder, there's 80 tracks, seems like maybe 1/3 lost their shaping points, leaving just 3 shaping points AFAICS.

Same here. I also experience lost shaping points sometimes, but fail to see a pattern...

The pattern (at least) is 4 very experienced users now report the same issue. That's a good start.

@tapio will understand why I make this trivial post ;-)

Attached are examples of a "point visibility count" bug. It is likely a very rare instance, and I can't reproduce it, but thought I'd share it anyway for some fun. I think it is likely some incorrectly cached database count of visible points. In original case, count=1 but actual visible=0; in another case count=0 but actual visible=4. When I tapped on "show all" then "show none" the count was finally fixed.

The point visibility bug is the ONLY bug as far as I'm concerned; it happens all the time to me.  I don't have a complete recipe to duplicate it, but might be close.  From memory:
1) Always keep Favorites folder showing all points, always, on both devices.  If I see 0 or a small number, grumble and turn them back to all visible.
2) On phone, move a point from Favorites to another folder.  Sometimes, I also Hide the point after moving.
3) Time passes.  Sync happens.
4) Favorites on tablet show 0 or small number visible.  (!!!)

@Viajero Perdido - yes I didn't mention Cloud Sync, but I feel is directly related, somehow. Hide all/ Show all is an easy workaround for me now.

Was very much looking forward to sort per folder, thx for that one.

You are welcome. Check please also export of your 1000+ tracks. It should work correctly (I hope) as well even with overwrite option  ;)

Yes, solved... just some rare collision? with overwrite mode. 1623 exported tracks, 1622 files. Will check on PC (totalcmd) what's the missing file.

I am also looking forward to the sorting, it is much better now. But there is one more improvement.
But I do not know if it is much or little effort. That's why I made a suggestion.

problem furthermore exist

Existing images are only displayed once, they are no longer displayed when the listing is opened again. Restarting locus does not solve the problem.

May you please pack me here a directory for s cache that does not correctly display images for you? Thanks.
