Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.14.+ ( 1/2023 )

to check VDOP value and why it does not refresh, I'll need from you recorded NMEA messages created in the time, the problem was visible. It may be done by enabling NMEA recorded in the Locus Map > settings > GPS & sensors > NMEA recording. Thanks.

@Andrew Heard
problem with the bottom panel > it is a work in progress. We are preparing an updated version of this panel that will hopefully help here.

Weather is discussed mainly here on the help desk. Two points are solved now. "Yellow", hmm, I do not know. I may delete value by 3, but on the second side, app display 3-hours interval ...

trackpoint view - heh, probably because of two lines caused by the long track name right? :). Hmm, thanks.
Hi and welcome :)
It is more about OsmAnd than OruxMaps. OruxMaps is very close to Locus Map, but it is not so actively developed, and hard to say what are Jose's plans.

SHP files are fully supported in Locus GIS app. I do not think it belongs to Locus Map app as it is format focused on GIS & mapping.
I'm thinking what may be the source of these sounds. Probably the only feature that may cause this is a warning on GPS "Position acquired" and "Position lost" in the app's "GPS & sensors" settings.

And effect on battery: sound itself sure not, but if this really comes from GPS, it means that app uses GPS even if not needed? Or do you have for example some track recording auto-start system enabled?
Hi guys, interesting discussion. I've moved it to "Free chat" category where it belongs I believe :)

Anyway, are there any serious advantages of the OsmAnd compared to Locus Map? Some time ago, OsmAnd was made mainly for navigation and nothing more. Over years, both apps have more and more in common, but both do things in different ways.

But because I've never used OsmAnd (what a surprise  :) ), I'll be interested in the major advantage you see in it, thanks.

Thanks for the tip. Seems the "Battery optimization" starting to cause more and more troubles with the latest Android & tools we use, damn.
Hello, sorry for the troubles.

As I see, you are already discussing this problem with the Locus Map support team on the help desk, so we may end it here.
Other features / Re: off-road routing‏‏‎

understand what you mean. Internally there is a parameter that define maximal offset of point to the closest road/way. Internally in the BRouter, it should be 250, we've increased it to 400 metres. When you are more than 400m off the road, app is now unable to compute the route. And yes, connection between exact location and the location on the road is also missing.

What you need is
- increasing this limit
- add direct connection between required location & start/end point on the computed route

This parameter is anyway quite risky because it may compute false-positive routes across obstacles that can't be passed by foot/bike so simply. So increasing this parameter over 400m does not bring extra benefit, only complications.

Suggest to give a try to route planner to see that current 400m limit really works as expected. When you start then navigation, app should also draw a line with distance value to the closet computed route trackpoint.
If you just want to try it, how it looks, it is available in the list of functions or may be as a button to the functions panel. Just search for "Floating menu".
sorry for the troubles. Since yesterday, on the Google Play is a new app version. So please give it a try and let me know if works as expected. Thanks!

Hi @michaelbechtold , I do not like problems with map loading, you know it. After the years, it is starting to be a mystery also for me :)

Anyway, thanks for the screenshot. If you have enabled auto-loading, isn't this the problem? App tries to load some extra maps that may fill a missing tiles in the overlay?

"Cache directory" ... ah yes, both has to be deleted, thanks.

Hi to all. A little weird winter in most of Europe, not an ideal weather to some out-activity right? I was stuck on some really weird problems in the core of the Locus Map & Android & Gear watches etc. So this new version does not bring too many interesting news. Anyway new weather forecast & support for Garmin Varia radar should be usable additions. Enjoy it and winter as well  ;)

this is an intent to clearly indicate, there is more info at the bottom so you may scroll-up to see it.
isn't there some app for control and setup of this controller? I think this app should work or is no longer valid for the latest Carpe Iter controller version?

Unfortunately, I do not own this controller so can't tell for sure. It is also possible to check the official manual or ask on support directly here:

Hi guys, I was stuck for almost a whole week solving problems with quite random crashes at the start in some cases ...

Anyway.. the new Beta version on Google Drive with some minor tweaks. Hope all will work as expected and ... enjoy the weekend of course!
