Hi Menion
Locus working well
A possible glitch in map rotation ( or maybe a possible glitch in my understanding, could also be why someone else had problems)

Using Locus Pro v1.6.1
  Lock portrait mode on
  map rotation offset portrait = 0

If Condition 1 = (
  Map rotation = ON
  Use hardware compass = OFF
  Auto Change = ON
  Speed Change = 1m/s )
   when stopped - last track up is oriented to display top
   when moving - track up is oriented to display top

If Condition 2 = (
  Map rotation = ON
  Use hardware compass = ON
  Auto Change = ON
  Speed Change = 1m/s )
   when stopped - map north is oriented to display top
   when moving - map north is oriented to display top

I like the behaviour of condition 1 so please don't change it, as now that I have found how to get track up to the top of the display it is the one I mainly use.  

But I sort of expected that for condition 2 that;
  when stopped - map north would always be aligned to compass north ie the map would rotate as you rotate the device
  when moving (> than set speed) - track up would be display up
My way of thinking confused me when I was trying to set it to track up, and may have caused the other poster problems also

Wishlist option;
  waypoint edit - a way to copy /move waypoints to another catagory.

  you may find google maps etc more willing to share if the map caching/save is turned off for google etc.  This would be no good to me as I am often outside data range (and can't afford date costs) but it would allow online use in metropolitan areas to at least view and use google maps etc.

Kind regards

Hi Menion,
added a couple of single maps to root maps directory had the same behaviour  of the scale bar ie max scale size = 160km. So does not seem to be map size or map place dependent.  Curious but not a big problem. Thanks for your help on getting it back in the first place. Its nice to know again how close that street is.
Regards Stuart

Hi Menion,
a nice bug  :D spoken like a true programmer :D
tried the enable and disables no good, but the remove and reinstall software fixed the problem, I should have thought of that one my apologies.  
Curiously on all my maps the scale bar numbers disappear when it is larger than 160km but the  bar remains.
I'm wondering if its my maps, so will have a play and put in some single maps to see if that changes it, will let you know outcome
regards stuart

Hi Menion,
apologies for my slow reply I forgot to set notify
to answer no rotate set
setting map display rotate map icon - not show to view or rotate
settings menu map scale = on
settings menu map angle rotation (Portrait landscape )modifiers = 0
 it up dated to pro version to 1.5.2 ( but I cannot remember if it was absent before update)
 added extra maps (folders sized 1.8Gb, 0.7Gb and 0.4Gb) scale bar not present in any of map displays even on smaller folders
 maps produced via mobac (big maps sqlite)
 did try a map with different layer types (map/terrain/earth) , but have deleted that one and put it back to original only map type
have tried,
 deleted data cache
 map re-intialize
 phone reboot
 delete map cache
regards Stuart
Troubles & Questions / Lost scale bar
April 17, 2011, 12:07:41
Hi I have lost my scale bar on the map, even through the show scale bar is selected, any suggestions of how to get it back?
Thanks Stuart
Hi Menion,
regarding rmaps, I set my RMaps directory to where the locus directory is and it did treat all of the maps as one big one,
 but currently I only have 1.9 GB of maps in 6 separate sqlitedb maps  so not over the total 2 gb limit yet,
am creating some more maps for locus will let you know what happens

Quote from: "menion"Heh, 14GB seems to be good :) but unfortunately as you can see, this is not in my power!

so with this troubles, comes two questions!
1) which is maximum size allowed to read correctly and why is this limit!
2) is here any other solution on this problem? Maybe some special format with separated files working all together ...

anyway ... did anyone tried this huge maps on any other supported software how they handle them? RMaps for example ...

Thanks Marlar,
I was focused more on doing a similar thing for tracks, my bad writing, apologies

Implemented / Track Waypoints and menu

Hi Menion,
thanks for the track updates in 1.4, I'm now running with the bought version only, and it works well.  
I have a couple small wishes for track and waypoint handling, that I think might make it easier,

    1) I find that to start guiding from the map display is a little difficult, (probably my fat fingers and the phone). Would it be possible to start this from the menus  ie.  
          1a) Maybe an extra button (or expand the compass button) on the right hand menu to start a guiding sub menu ( guide on,  guide off, guide forward, guide back, nearest point , guide to waypoint, guide by compass... ) sort of like the menu that pops up when you write a track manually.    
         1b) Maybe you could also add it as a couple of extra choices, for when you are starting it from the tracks manage display that now has a map option but could also include track forward and track back so that it can go straight to the map in guiding mode, sort of like you can now do for waypoints from your mange waypoint menus.
         1c ) in the compass guiding mode, add a menu option to guide to select a waypoint or track guide so that it cam also be started from the compass display directly

    2) I haven't thought about how to do this one, but a way to be able to create a track directly from the waypoints list not just from the map display,
   maybe just a simple create track by waypoint that just allows you to choose next waypoint, and loops until you are at the final waypoint

Regards Stuart

Hi Menion,
Firstly, I have been trying out your app, it is very good, if I can work out how this market thing works I will buy the paid one.
I have looked but can not find how to guide along a track;
ie after creating the first track point (poi), second track point , third point ...etc.. that make up a track/route
have locus guide point me to the first point then after arriving switch to guiding/point me to the second, and then to the third and so on.  
It would be nice to be able to store this route, and run it in reverse so I can return to my start.
I should add I am trying to do this offline as I am often in places with poor reception and no data signal, so was looking for a simple offline multiple  point to points
Kind regards Stuart
