Perhaps 2 profiles, quick and pleasant?

3. "Sort tracks by nearest" doesn't work. All my tracks show "0" (in blue). I don't even understand how this is meant to work, compared to "sort by distance" to start and "sort by distance to end". Both those show a valid distance and sort correctly.
@menion I see exactly the same issue as @john_percy with Locus Free & Pro 3.36.2 & beta Other methods of sorting appear OK.

What do you think about visible top-right value in list of tracks for every track? Currently, there is average speed as base value (when sorted by name, dist, time or date). What about change to "elevation gain" as asked here ? Anyone against it?
@menion - great idea.

It is really interesting with your notifications. Isn't possible, it was a notification from for example "GPS lost fix"?
@menion (actual quote from 3.35+) - my "GPS lost" notification is custom 5-beep OGG file, so no, I have no explanation of source for this single-short-beep other than the POI alert system. It is the only when POI alerts are enabled this single-beep will be heard. Is there any change to POI alerts in 3.36.0 Pro (other than button color) for testing - it appears the Beta POI alert UI hasn't been migrated to Pro?

click on notify panel is not obvious, I know. It is exactly the same system as used in app settings, in Live tracking and now also here. And to be true, I think it is not too important.
@menion - important if user want to 1) notify until stopped or 2) change pause or 3) change sound or 4) change vibration. In 3.35.2 Pro these settings are on the Basic & Notification tabs. I like the new beta layout better but I think the settings are too hidden - it took me lots of playing to find them, and then only by accident., and only because I thought something wasn't working correctly.

Stop button should be visible only when "repeated notification" is enabled. Anyway seems there is some problem with these notifications on your device. I'm playing with it now maybe 10 minutes, and no problem so far, weird.
I will try a more objective test next week when some spare time. Given there was custom sound and single beep sound at different times, there is definitely some problem happening.

More thoughts related to new styled POI alerts:
  • It's not very obvious that advanced settings are accessed by tapping on the "Notify when..." label
  • I have selected my own OGG sound file for notifications and used 30s pause between notifications, but in testing I could clearly hear two notification sounds at different times, one a short (default?) beep, and at other times my own selected sound file
  • When the short beep is heard the red STOP button is not displayed. I found that when I deleted the (test) point for the alert, the STOP button was immediately  displayed. Something seems not quite right.

In my 1st testing the new sorting is huge improvement over previous version. Well done @menion.

When I see this "whisper" I assumed it was just the last city remembered from previous search.

Anyway, your device seems to have many smaller UI problems that I never met before, interesting.
no reason I can suggest, its unrooted, pretty basic setup/ nothing special. Relatively new phone with very few apps running from startup, and mostly in flight mode. I use it mainly just for Locus.

Correct. Sometimes it worked, sometimes not. I did a few tests to be sure. There shouldn't have been any background task hogging the CPU but I can't be sure. It's not a big issue as rarely performed, but thought I should at least report it.

search in the current folder is currently not possible
@menion - I think this is where there is confusion for the user (or at least me) - a simple sort is performed purely within the current folder, but your new advanced sorting methods are across all folders. I can appreciate it will take a lot of time to sort all tracks across all folders, something not possible before now, but the user shouldn't have to incur this time cost if the current folder only has a smaller number of tracks.

Most probably your track database is huge.
@menion - ahh yes it's not just searching in current folder. Is there a simple way to check # tracks?

it's because of some really low resolution you have on your device.
@menion - it's no big deal. I have never changed the device resolution. I do have config.cfg dev_gui_main_rescale_value=1.1?

« on: January 16, 2019, 23:49:26 » Sorting: 157 tracks, sort by Closest, 34s on new tablet. Sort by Distance to Start is <1s but sort by Distance to End is ~10s. On mid range Samsung phone, 173 tracks, sort by Closest 23s, sort by Distance to End 4s. I don't mind because I'd rarely sort by anything but creation date. But more concerning - if currently sorted by Closest, then when display turned off then on again, the sort (Loading...) is performed again. Can this be avoided?

Search in Data Manager: nice feature. It doesn't appear results are in any useful sorted order?

I have to say that I was wrong in my previous post. Locus offers the last search city but also current city if known (as I mentioned on the help desk).
yes working for Mount Barker & Strathalbyn - I'd never noticed this before, thanks. Is that a recent feature? That's exactly what I was asking for. A pity it doesn't work everywhere but as you say that is issue with OSM not Locus.
