[DE] - deutschsprachiger Forumsbereich / Neue Satmap in der Beta
« on: March 02, 2022, 19:49:29 »
Irgendwie weiß ich nicht so richtig was da neue sein soll an Satelliten Karten. Ich kann da keine neue Karten finden.
und was bringen diese ? Ich hatte vorher schon eine Karte mit Satelliten Ansicht. Die war von Google und gibt es schon Jahren. Ich konnte diese als Hauptkarte nehmen oder als Owerlay.

Tools / OpenOutdoorMap - Make your own mapsforge maps for Locus
« on: February 07, 2022, 21:22:52 »
In many weeks of testing I have developed a Windwos batch script to generate maps for Locus which are very close to maps probided by OpenAndroMaps. This script enables you to generate a topographic map for any area of the world.

The script and all necessary software will run on a "normal" Windows 10 PC. All details will be found on my website. Although the website is in German, you can translate the most parts easily and the script inself is mostly in English. You will find download links for the map-generation-script, all necessary other scripts and download links for all software packages.

The maps generated with this script will be named OpenOutdoorMap (OOM) . There is also a test-map for download.

I am happy to get any feedback und suggestions.

Every app which operates with external data (like Locus vs. OAM maps eg) - What is Googles idea here? Only the app itself is allowed to retrieve/store such data? This would be a huge step back (and a huge step towards Apple stupidity).

not yet implemented. Suggest voting here to increase priority and watch progress.
Does this basic and useful function really needs votes to be implemented?

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.4.+ ( 23. 9. 2021+ )

All geo App developers should unite and kickk Google's ass.
Now all of them - and their customers and users are suffering separately.

Themes - Vector maps / New style: FzOAM
« on: June 27, 2020, 17:44:03 »
Hello, fellow walkers, runners, bikers, hikers and mountaineers!

While searching for the best map and theme source I've found two great projects:
1. OpenAndroMaps is already a huge one, with well tuned maps and many themes (Thank You!).
Unfortunately in my opinion, none of them was easy to read and/or detailed enough.
2. Freizeitkarte on the other hand isn't that widespread, but is an impressive project (Thank You!).
It is far more detailed and has really good themes.
The only major flaw was that the theme details appear too late when zooming.

I wasn't brave enough to tune the zoom level for every detail,
but tried adding the useful landscape details to the feature rich Elements theme for OAM.
Most of the textures are directly borrowed or heavily inspired of FZK.
The documents and key file are slightly tuned accordingly.
I am providing the result if anyone finds it useful.
I don't have the time and talent to support and develop the new theme.
If someone decides to adopt it, I will be very happy!
Until then I hope You enjoy it.

Happy journeying everyone!

Locus Map 4, prep (Archived) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion

b) I personally even with my quite slim fingers, from time to time incorrect tap on buttons in function panels, so I believe that this increase in width will be a benefit for easier usage.
@menion - also remember/ please don't remove the functionality of config.cfg dev_gui_main_rescale_value setting. Maybe migrate into expert settings. It allows function panel buttons to be increased in size for this purpose.

Also, more importantly, merry Christmas & happy new year to Menion & all the incredibly hard working Locus team, and wishing you all great success in 2020.

So short (5-10 minutes) poll for those of you, interest in future of Locus Map: .
A pity there is no option in the poll for zoom buttons positioned as currently along the bottom of screen; when cycling I rest of my hand on the bottom of the phone to stabilize, so having those buttons close to other buttons as proposed increases the risk of tapping the wrong button.

Each question could have an extra text box so the user can provide further comments (as above). Maybe too much information?

PS, I had to think about why that prototype screenshot was bugging me...  Now I know.

There are things covering up parts of the map.  Four round things.  The map to me is #1, it's the reason for the app.  I have Locus set up to show a clean map rectangle, and all the cruft is outside of it, in panels where it belongs.  (Other than scale and invisible [!] copyright, but close enough.)

Also, I like BIG targets for the + and - buttons.  They're quite big now, but those fat round circles in the prototype look smaller and harder to hit, certainly harder with the left thumb.

My two euro-cents...  :)

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.

Maybe I'll get too much feedback ... but I'll still try it :).
I assume for experienced users/ old users that don't like change ;-) it will be possible to change layout to what they currently prefer eg. with side panel buttons? For cycling I prefer the zoom/ main dashboard buttons to be large & along the screen edge to minimize false taps.

I like reading a long list of changes. It's a sign that lots of development is happening! Locus is almost unique in the level of detail in release notes.

Ich nehme an, es ist ein Problem, wenn man den Track im Routenplaner mit nur sehr wenigen Zwischenpunkten erstellt hat? Beachtet die automatische Neuberechnung nur diese Punkte?

Meinst du mit Zwischenpunkt den grünen Shaping Point oder den blauen Zwischenziel bzw. via Point. Ich glaube das wird oft verwechselt und ist bei der Sache sehr entscheidend

I published locus action files to simplify routing data installing and updating — As for openandromaps, now you can simply click "Locus" link to install or update.
