Wonderful!! I got to play with this for a bit today.
I have Samsung:
Galaxy S8 phone, Android 8.0.0
Galaxy S3 Frontier watch,  Tizen

I tested with a walk around the neighborhood, driving to a park and searching for a geocache.

I found the position updates on the watch to be quite delayed.  I usually had to raise the watch 2 or 3 times before the position updated on the map.  So maybe it was something like every 10 seconds before my position updated?  I had the phone set to using Google Satellite maps.  I tried it again using an offline OSM map and although the display update of the map tiles was faster, the position update was still too slow for my taste.

If the phone screen shut off or I manually shut it off and put the phone in my pocket, the screen stopped updating altogether.  I thought if I turned on "run Locus as a service" this might not happen.  I also turned off battery optimization on the phone.  I'm not sure yet if that cured the problem.

I recorded a track and then put the phone away.  When I stopped the track, I got an error message of "can't connect to Locus - can't save" or something like that.  Turned the phone screen on and hit the stop recording button and it saved the track OK.  I never got the chance to specify WHERE to save the track, it just used the last track folder location that I had used before.

On my second track attempt, I started track recording.  Then I also selected "Hiking" in the Samsung Fitness App, which also records a track and heart rate.  Both ran concurrently and both recorded the same track.  One oddity was that the first time I raised my wrist, the Locus track screen came up.  After that, the Samsung track screen came up whenever I raised my wrist.  I could navigate back to the Locus track screen OK.  But the next time I raised my wrist, it defaulted to the Samsung screen again.  Not a big deal and I suppose not many people would run two different track recording apps at the same time.  I just thought it odd that the watch did not return to the last used screen each time.

I found the waypoint icons on the screen to be much too large.  And the default directional pointer was HUGE on the screen. Quite distracting.  Is it possible to make them smaller?

What I really, really want to see is something like the compass screen.  When hiking or geocaching, I'm usually navigating towards a waypoint.  I start the navigation and then put the phone away.  I'll periodically pull the phone out to check on my progress, noting the bearing, heading and distance.  I'd love to see this displayed on the watch so I could leave it in my pocket and just check the watch every now and then.

I tried setting the app as a Widget but it does not show up in the list of available widget apps.

I have a suggestion... If you have to make separate versions for Pro and Free, shouldn't the Pro folks get it first?  They are the ones who paid. And I would think more active.... Just a thought.

Well, that's all for now.  Thanks for starting the development of this!

this thread is for general feedback and testing of new versions of Locus Map Watch add-on for Samsung Gear and Galaxy Watch.

Currently only closed beta version for registered users is available and is distributed only using Galaxy Apps (on both phone and the watch because of Samsung limitations). Registered users should be able to install and transfer the add-on to their watch by opening this link directly on their phone (Galaxy Apps should capture the link and open add-ons store page)

The closed beta version should communicate with the latest Locus Map Free or Pro versions directly. When the official "public/open" beta comes out it will be only available for Locus Map Free (again due to some Samsung companion app policies, we will probably have to make separate Locus Map Pro Gear add-on even though both add-on versions will be practically identical).

The add-on requires Locus Map phone app to run, it is not (at least yet) stand-alone.

There are two main screens available:
- Map screen: features zoomable and scrollable map with autocenter/rotate function button.

- Track recording screen: Offers function to select one of your tracking profiles and start the track recording. Then there is multi-page dashboard when the recording is active. You can pause/resume/stop the recording or add waypoint. Dashboard values are configurable by long-pressing them directly and choosing a value from the displayed option list.

Not yet available features:
- navigation directions: partially implemented but not available. Navigation directions will be available directly on top of the map as an overlay when the navigation is active.
- heart rate measurement: something we would like to add, but the implementation has not even started yet.

Known (serious) bugs:
- screens might not display correctly or at all on Gear S2 (seems to be mostly the case right after installing the add-on. On second or third run the things seem to sort out themselves for some reason)

- the add-on refuses to connect to the phone if the phone is in "sleep"(i.e. has had the screen turned off for a while). Just turning on the phone screen makes the add-on suddenly reconnect. Confirmed with Samsung S7 (Android 8) and Gear S3 - if you are also affected by this problem please let me know.

I don't have access to the latest Galaxy Watch so any kind feedback from that watch would be helpful.

Please share with me any bugs, crashes or any other feedback which would help me improve the app for you.

Thanks a lot and hope you will enjoy :)

[CZ&SK] - diskuze o Locusu / Re: Zobrazení datumu nálezu.

Když už jsem narazil na toto téma, tak prosím o jednu formátovací drobnost:
Pokud si do Locusu nalezené keše naimportuju (např. přes plugin Geocaching4Locus), vidím sice u každé nalezené keše v záložce "ZÁKLADNÍ INFO" v části "EXISTUJÍCÍ (LOKÁLNÍ) TERENNÍ POZNÁMKY" svůj log, ale u data zalogování je sice i čas, ale chybí tam rok ! Nám starým pardálům s děravou pamětí, co kešujeme už více než 10 let, by se tam i ten rok hodil ...

[CZ&SK] - diskuze o Locusu / Nejbližší keše
« on: September 14, 2018, 11:03:10 »
Velice často se mi hodí tato funkce na dny, kdy potřebuji určitý typ a velikost keše a ocitnu se někde mimo domov.

Například tedy hledám tradičku velikosti small.
Využiji funkci nejbližší, nastavím filtr a Locus mi keše uloží.

Jenže tento mnou nastavený filtr Locus nastaví do nastavení živé mapy, což nechci. Chci jej použít jednorázově. Daleko nejlepší by byla možnost vytvořit si několik filtrů stejně jako při filtrování ve složce.

co přesně si mám představit pod tím "zobrazovat u mnou nalezených keší datum mého nálezu"? V detailu keše by hned nahoře pod mapou měl být vidět tvůj log i s datumem nálezu i s popisem.

Logy přátel jsou opravdu náročnější a po pravdě nevím zda to vůbec jde, nicméně do cca 05/2019 bude potřeba komplet přepracovat systém jako Locus Map komunikuje s geocaching webem, takže dojde i na věci kolem tohoto. Budu na to myslet, jestli s tím půjde něco udělat.

Zdravím, mám takový nápad, nemohl by Locus zobrazovat u mnou nalezených keší datum mého nálezu? Stačilo by po stažení detailů keše.
Dále, mohl by Locus prohledat logy u zobrazené keše, vyhledat logy přátel a tyto logy zobrazit, nezávisle na době před jakou to přítel lovil? Chápu že by to bylo náročnější na data i čas načtení, ale tato funkce by se často hodila...
