Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.48.+ ( 28. 8. 2020 )

One little improvement for the Track Editor:
Menion, you might remembered some years ago we discussed about the "timestamp-recalculate" feature of the Track Editor?! For those who don't know: In the Track Editor ("Modify Track"), when using "Insert/Edit trackpoint", moving track points will also change their timestamps. For adding trackpoints, it's obvious that a new time has to be calculated. Now when moving existing points, Locus will also recalculate the timestamp based on the new distances. In principle a useful feature, but I always disagreed with Menion about existing points (and I would still like to see a switch "Auto-Recalculate On/Off" in the track editor).
Anyway, we found a (kinda hidden) compromise: When only moving a single point, Locus will not touch its timestamp. So there's a slightly hidden possibility to edit without touching the timestamps.

Now my request concerns gaps: Currently, that recalculation also takes place across gaps. But I think you wil agree that gaps are there to separate different sections of a track. So assume we have the following points:
  • 12:00.00
  • 12:00.10
  • gap
  • 12:10.00
  • 12:10.10
Currently, if you move points 1 and 2, the time difference between 2 and 3 will also be smoothed. The exact result of course depends on the actual location, but we might get something like 12:00:00 - 12:05:00 - 12:10:00. I think you'll agree that this is wrong.
So would it be possible to never let your recalculation "extend over" gaps? Even if you edit 1,2 and 3, points 2 and 3 are effectively end and start points of a section and should therefore keep their timestamps.
Agreed?

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map - cloud/sync server
« on: September 11, 2020, 23:11:58 »
Check link in the first post. I work on sync and routing separately, so every topic has its own versions. Once, sync will be considered as "final", I'll merge them.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Full screen display & Android 11
« on: August 14, 2020, 13:11:16 »
@michaelbechtold
probably the biggest problem will be mentioned access to internal memory. Fortunately, I was able to opt-out from this requirement for this year, but till September 2021, it will have to be solved. This is also biggest push for us, to work on our own cloud storage (sync system), that should prevent loss of any points/tracks.
Other changes are related to permissions and some changes regards communication with 3rd party apps, but seems that all other thinks works correctly.

Mentioned problem with full screen in this topic, is more a general problem how Locus Map work in fullscreen. I desperatelly needs to find week or two and write this correctly ... finally.

Is this in the Locus documentation?   ::)

Should be, very beneficial  :)

Wishlist / Re: Map legend shortcut vor vector maps
« on: May 02, 2020, 01:57:50 »
An idea: currently there are 2 types of buttons that can be added to function panels:
  • Add function button
  • Add link to app
How about 3rd type: Add link to  file? This could for this discussion be a PDF map legend file, but could be any useful file in practice.

[En] For online search I have the option of Google, Bing or Graphhopper. Offline search allows me to choose the database to search in, either LoMaps databases or OAM databases (which don't work as they have no address data).
But the pop up addresses come from the LoMaps database, so no search options. If Locus finds LoMaps data for the area, then you get the address. Locus seems to enumerate the available databases in a pseudo random manner. If it finds OAM data "first" you get only the map name as OAM poi data doesn't include addresses. If it finds LoMaps data first, then it works.
My guess is that putting all the Locus map and data files in one subfolder and all the OAM map and data files in another, and then renaming the OAM subfolder may allow you to game the system. It worked for me.

[De] Für die Online-Suche habe ich die Wahl zwischen Google, Bing oder Graphhopper.  Bei der Offline-Suche kann ich die Datenbank auswählen, in der gesucht werden soll, entweder LoMaps-Datenbanken oder OAM-Datenbanken (die nicht funktionieren, da sie keine Adressdaten enthalten).
 Die Popup-Adressen stammen jedoch aus der LoMaps-Datenbank, sodass keine Suchoptionen verfügbar sind.  Wenn Locus LoMaps-Daten für den Bereich findet, erhalten Sie die Adresse.  Locus scheint die verfügbaren Datenbanken pseudozufällig aufzulisten.  Wenn OAM-Daten "zuerst" gefunden werden, erhalten Sie nur den Kartennamen, da OAM-Poi-Daten keine Adressen enthalten.  Wenn zuerst LoMaps-Daten gefunden werden, funktioniert es.
 Ich vermute, dass Sie das System spielen können, wenn Sie alle Locus-Karten- und Datendateien in einem Unterordner und alle OAM-Karten- und Datendateien in einem anderen Unterordner ablegen und dann den OAM-Unterordner umbenennen.  Es hat bei mir funktioniert.

Da ich in manchen Gruppen viele Ordner habe, brauche ich die Funktion nicht nur für Ordner sondern auch für Gruppen.
Habe mal einen Vorschlag gemacht.

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion
« on: December 20, 2019, 11:01:36 »
If the top bar will be editable as it is now, we need empty spaces that we can add optionally. Reason: notch areas which reach into the top bar, on newer Smartphones if turned on.

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion
« on: December 19, 2019, 23:29:47 »
The created poll was made to help me decided about need for some components & color themes. There is still not yet done base look. Currently, I have on the table six version we discuss about.

And about possible configuration: you know me. I usually do features in the two steps. First, base, not too configurable and later, after some discussions and feedback, I'm adding options (when it makes sense).

It will be similar here. Hey, we have enough time to tune it to satisfy at least 95% of use-cases, so no worry :).

Btw: I'm not doing re-design because I want to do re-desing. I'm doing this to remove some limitations of old design and remove some problems we suffer for ages (based on support & own experience > like too much buttons at start for new users, fixed bottom panel, important buttons too far from fingers, etc.) I'm registering all your comments and will really try to find usable solution.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.42.+ ( 5. 12. 2019 )
« on: December 19, 2019, 21:49:03 »
idea:
- pause navigation
when I was on holiday and on the way back from france to germany, I decided to hit a nearby supermarket to save delicious souvenirs. As navigation was over a longer distance and set so far perfect, I just wanted to make everything 'pause, being idle' until I would be back on the track and continue the journey, without any re-calculation or anything. As the traffic was busy and the surrounding unused, I still wished myself a freeze-button.
- being-in-action-button (keep screen on for some attention-time)
being in Paris-rush-hour and traffic I needed to keep the screen on to check the street-possibilities at any time. My current mode was via 'waving' (I love it), but still needed the screen on at that time to have free hands and overview  ::)

Yes, once again you find myself trapped in traffic-topics again  :D 8)

Maps / Re: LiDAR- Digital Terrain Models (DTM) of European countries
« on: December 12, 2019, 12:39:59 »
After lots of hours of work, finally the latest version of DTMs of Spain are ready for Download:

https://data.opendataportal.at/dataset/dtm-spain

I therefor used the latest available source-files of the Spanish survey Institute. Most improvements are in regions which lack of LIDAR source data in the previous DTMs: Andalusia and the Balearic Islands.
Now the whole territory of Spain is covered by high quality LIDAR data.

With the two-finger zoom now default in any app I don't think the zoom buttons are needed except in particular use cases.

Disagree totally, sorry.

Two-finger zoom is a pain in the butt!  So is finding the hardware buttons.

If the on-screen zoom buttons ever disappear, I'll use an old version of the app in perpetuity.

for me while cycling, gloves, maybe cold hands, two large zoom buttons are more reliable, vive la difference
