Tasker / Re: Locus Tasker addon not working
March 09, 2023, 20:37:06

another common problem is the android automatic permissions removal if you dont use an app for a while.
This is interesting, I hope this means that POI, PhotoPOI, Lopints will start to merge together
having a photoPOI, that doesnt rely on local media, that can be synced is quite important, 

effectovely a private lopoint.
Tasker / Re: Locus Tasker addon not working
March 09, 2023, 13:29:42
Hi Tapio

im running latest locus 4.15 on 2 devices, Samsung with A13, and pco with A12, just checked the Tasker function is working fine and its launching my tasks ( a tasker menu)

but i did notice i had to click on it twice....

what app permissions do you have for the plugin and tasker/locus
feel free to email at this username at
That feature isnt there yet
in the mean time, bluestacks emulator, install locus, sync tracks
but also you need to sync the media folder, perhaps with foldersync app or similar....
as that contains the defaut photo POI
Quote from: DonMacN on September 30, 2022, 13:35:27Am I just trying to do the wrong thing, and that the planner really doesn't have much of a function at all, and that I'll need to find another desktop programme to do the offline route editing work?


Perhaps try bluestacks android emulator, install full locus, then you can work on route fully, and then sync to tablet....

EDIT: Ah I see, Gold = 2100 per year according to above screenshot.
Paying with LoCoins is a bit more expensive then, I will do it anyway, also to support the team

100 LoCoins > 1,19Euro that makes 24,99 Euro/year vs. GooglePlay 23,99/year

ive just paid with locoins, bought 1060 locoins for £9.63
google play subsctiption is £20.99    with locins the same is £19.07 so locoins is cheaper....
and as i havnet been using the free 600 locoins a year, even cheaper again...
Locus / Data / Media  is only used with take photo point action

if you make normal point, and add photo, it leaves photo where you found it
so if photo was in dcim or similar, problem if you then move photos.

solution, sort photos in to correct structure in Pictres or similar folder
then add to point
Backup pictures seperately to locus folder

Seems usefull for Locus when outdoors possibly.....
If you mean this Garmin addon

Its not made by menion/Locus
Its a 3rd party, and its free

Did you not test it with locus free before you bought pro/subscription

Just in case OP still inetersted

ive doen the same thing using locus and tasker as mentioned by  lor74cas above
but to receive and parse the SMS, that is a phone/tasker function really
also it wont work on all phones, ie MIUI devices

ie tasker reads incoming SMS,   gets lat and long
opens locus and the sepcified lat and long....

Also tasker can integrate with existing live tracking platform
ie locus, or tasker can update live tracking.
which means tasker can receive incoming SMS, parse and update livetracking with gps tracker devices rather than gps location of teh android device.

locus is simply the specific app to open geo url
the process is done by tasker.
Locus Map Watch / Re: Locus at wrist

This is a huge disadvantage with all round watches
a phone like ticwris max might be more suitable.
I tried it with an emulator at the correct resolution and that seemed to work ( 640x480 for the max)
Bluestacks emulator works great as well

also scrcpy which is usb cable screen mirroring is a great way to control phone from PC

Also anydesk works as well, which is similar to teamviewer

and motorola phones should be getting something like dex soon
Just FYI, beta seems to be working and syncing fine using bluestacks, for those people who want to try it without risking their phone install. 
Tools / Re: c-me live tracking
January 04, 2021, 18:43:38
Thanks gynta for your excellent project

one of the main reasons ive been using c-me rather than native locus live tracking is the tasker integration, as I can make a quick upload of a single gps position very quickly from a single one line tasker task.
so i generally do this once an hour during the day.

Then my wife has my kml file as a map item,    job done,
just had a look at the c-me website, my position is there as of 40 minutes ago, but the google maps is grey and has a development purposes only watermark, but to be honest this doesnt matter at all.
I also have a 300 pt snail trail of my travels viewing from the webpage, which i dont think current locus livetracking has.

So it would be great if gynta kept c-me up....but i understand if its time to take it down....
Many Thanks
