I don't know if I understood correctly but you could use the planner for the parts of the route listed on OSM. Then follow the gpx of your tracks or downloaded ones. You could make the GPXs you are interested in visible on the map, go with the planner to their start then continue on the GPX and so on...
Quote from: Menion on April 24, 2024, 08:22:02And thanks balloni. I also think it will be "this" problem with Geocaching.

Hello Menion,
maybe he's referring to what I wrote here:
in the absence of network, the error message on the orange background is intrusive. To avoid seeing it I disabled the geocaching live map. Why not integrate these messages into locus notifications?
Version 4.23.1
You could contribute by adding the information to openstreetmap. It will take some time but sooner or later it will be implemented and the transition will occur normally.
In the meantime, you would like Locus to insert a sort of bypass between two points that are not currently connected, temporarily until the grid is definitively updated. In this way not only the recalculation but also future planning would take the change into account.
It could be an interesting feature, but I don't know how many would be interested in it. But in my experience of use I have often found myself in similar situations having to edit the line manually each time.
I agree about the "no countdown", not even as an option there are too many options to get lost in this app  (:o getting lost in an orientation app is paradoxical)
Quote from: Andrew Heard on March 19, 2024, 04:42:25@menion "Missing Select from screen > why do you miss this option? You do it directly in Route planner - picking from the map screen." - I couldn't quote you because the topic was locked.

A few times while testing the new offline route planner I wished there was the option. For example (even in writing this reply) the route planner now shows bottom panel "+ Select start" & "+ Select destination" > I tap Select start > and here straight way I have no option to select an ad-hoc position on the map? Isn't this sufficient reason, and consistent with other places where "Select from screen" is unhidden?

Yes, as you say in your later post, I can tap the map direct, but once the user has displayed the "Select location" list, for whatever reason, I don't see a reason not to display the method.

I agree, the same for me "A few times while testing the new offline route planner"

Quote from: Menion on February 02, 2024, 11:42:21Hi lor74cas,

there were some changes on the Crowdin side, but even our main account requires only code from the email. There isn't any alternative option except auth-app? I would expect some "Use another method" button, where your email should be used as an authenticator.

I wrote to crowdin, this is the answer

QuoteHi Lorenzo,

We will gladly help you, so we need to run a quick security check first before disabling the 2fa for your account. Please provide us with the following info:

Confirmation from the project owner, who can verify identity that we should reset the 2fa for your account.
Email + thread from this email.
Stored device cookie cnpf (from the device they were logged in previously)

To do the last one, please open your account sign-in page => open browser dev tools => go to Application tab => Cookies (attached the video recording to guide the process)

Also, we would need to inform you that we will be able to restore your access to the account within 3 working days

Looking forward to your reply,

So I need from Locus the permission from the project owner, I think I have identified the value of the requested cookie.
Of course, this procedure is not at all simple!

Hi, I was registered for Italian translations as lor74cas, it's been a while since I made any updates and today I wanted to check a translation that doesn't seem correct to me.
Unfortunately, after logging in, I am asked for the verification code with the authentication app, but I don't have any valid code generated by the authentication app.
I have not kept the recovery codes and my email is already registered with the lor74cas login, the magic link also requires the authentication code, so I can no longer log in.
Is there an alternative to creating an account with a different email?

Quote from: papizac on December 24, 2023, 16:31:38Good morning
I would like to connect locus map to my smartwatch, but I couldn't find it in the locus settings.
another question: why does locus turn off when I close my smartphone and I no longer have
information about my journey when I reopen it.
Thank you for your answers
for your smartwatch take a look at the locus plugins on app store to connect with garmin or with gear.
If your device kills Locus[]=kill
if the side panel is hidden, when you click on the button to show the map legend nothing happens because the legend is opened in the hidden panel.

I would expect that if the panel is hidden when I click on the legend, it should show up again with the legend info.
Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.19.+ ( 9/2023 )

Quote from: michaelbechtold on October 15, 2023, 09:23:17The contour lines mentioned in the news are embedded into the .map files. And display (or not) is controlled by the theme.
The hgt files are optional and allow the dynamic elevation Feature.
Thanks for the reply, but I think that a bit of confusion arises if the map shows more detail than what is calculated for the altimetry. They should always be aligned, whereas now there is a possibility that this will not happen without the user being aware of it. Now for example I had the maps with less visible detail but Sonny's hgts at 1', but I was aware of it.Obviously it's just my opinion as long as I understand the new implementation correctly 
Quote from: Menion on September 25, 2023, 09:38:40App (if we will talk about track recording), is prepared to accidentally shutdown of the whole system. So when you restore the power of the device within 10 minutes, the recording should even start again automatically.
Thanks Menion,
it's something that I, like Andrew Heard, have also tested and I confirm that it is truly a great feature of Locus.
I didn't know about the 10 minute limit, if it is exceeded Locus creates two tracks, closes the abruptly interrupted one and opens a new one?
Maybe 10 are few, especially if you don't notice that the battery has abandoned you, the low battery warning on Android has never been very relevant, perhaps you could put in place a proper acoustic warning below a certain charge threshold directly in Locus.
Quote from: Tapio on August 19, 2023, 19:45:35Not my experience. In case of Android crash/reboot I never lost a track and Locus continued recording the restored track. Happened to me ~3 times over the years.
I confirm, in the rare cases in which it happened I was always amazed how the track was then easily recovered when restarting locus.
To be sure that something hasn't changed, I did a test: I started the track and after a few minutes I switched off and restarted the device, when in locus the track is automatically resumed.
Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.18.+ ( 8/2023 )

Quote from: joeloc on August 11, 2023, 18:45:39Buddy tracking is super unreliable btw, if anybody still cares about that function. It stops working at least least five times per day and we have to manually turn it off and on to see our points again.

It always happens when network reception is bad for a while. Locus seems to mess up internally and never gets back on track.

Btw... if you have code in there like

if phone.isOnline()

that might be the main problem. Once you leave your LTE development couch and travel through the real world, your phone will quite often only THINK it's online... like in zero bars 4G or even Edge. Transmitting a single byte might take ages though or come back with a failure after some longish timeout. Quite likely Locus hickups on that... maybe if the network error timeout is longer than the tracking interval? Just guessing.

And nope... we're not in rural India... we're in the mountains of southern France right in central Europe. Buddy tracking still fails plenty.

There are obviously at least a dozen other things wrong with buddy support in general. But unless the likely answer is different from "not a priority" (as for the last five(?) years), I won't bother repeating myself over and over again. Ask if you want two more pages of neccessary fixes... or just go cycling with a buddy, then you might finally notice yourself and do something about it :-)

I have experienced the LT fails so many times that I no longer use it.Unfortunately, I confirm that where there is reception difficulty, it freezes. I understand the technical difficulties and now I turn off data reception to save battery life.I prefer a tried and tested system I made with tasker based on text messages only, using only the telephone network is very reliable. The applicant asks for the position and the phone answers.

Hello, in the daily forecast detail panel it would be useful to have a link to the next and previous day at the bottom, avoiding having to go back to the main forecast menu each time.
