Hello all, I have a question about information screen for selected track. At the bottom of screen there is summary about track total ascending and descending.
Last week I was on holiday at see. I sail a boat for the distance about 80 km with locus tracking on. When the trip was over I quickly checked track summary. What was surpassing that total assenting and descending was about 1100 m. I would expect something like 0 m in the ideal case or 10 - 100 m in real case. Has somebody experienced with this?
I believe that this error is caused by GPS altitude inaccuracy. Is it possible to switch some altitude filtering on in Locus? I haven't found such a setting :-( If not would it be possible to implement some kind of filtering like direction filter for for compass?

Hello Menion,
I have noticed that you recently added an icon on the main map screen if guiding is turned on. I shows a static image (arrows pointing to a dot) which controls guiding when I touch it.
The previous tracking software I used to use has an ability to show a small arrow that points in a direction towards to next point in a route together with distance (and angle). It has basically the same behavior as the compass screen in Locus. The big advantage of this arrow is that it is not necessary to switch to compass screen during guiding or rotate the phone to harmonize map with terrain. The arrow always show to next point in the track therefore it is very to easy to decide which path to chose when I get a crossroad. Moreover the guiding arrow would occupy no additional space because the static guiding icon is shown during guiding anyway. :-)
Do you think that it would be possible to change the static image in the icon to something described above?
Thank you, Alex
Naprosto souhlasím z Honzou. Locus je skvělá aplikace a rozhodně neztrácí na hodnotě, pokud se my uživatelé musíme "lehce rozhlédnout po internetu" :-) Hlavně když bude vývoj legální a autor nebude neustále obtěžován nepříjemnými e-maily. Přeji autorovi mnoho sil do dalšího vývoje a nám (uživatelům) spoustu nových vychytávek. :-)
