Tools / Re: [Tasker] Remove timestamps from GPX files

b) As for the time tag, it is unlikely that it is spread over 3 lines. Just possible. It's just in oder to be safe. In another script, I delete trkpt tags. Those are most likely spread over multiple lines.
c) That's the point. -z kind of flattens to one line. Allowing analysis over (in the source) multiple lines. Usually sed operates per line. Then you can not match from xml tag start to xml tag end if tag start and tag end are in multiple lines.

Add-ons / DirectCall Add-On
« on: January 10, 2022, 09:18:43 »
    Hi, I made a very simple add-on mainly for myself but didn't want to keep it from you.

    The add-on allows you to add a button to the main map screen for calling a configured phone number with a single touch.

    How to use:
    • Install the add-on from Play Store or via the APK file.
    • From your apps screen/launcher, start "DirectCall Settings" and configure the desired phone number and additional settings.
    • Re-Start Locus Map, tap the "set function panels" button, tap the "+" and then "Add function button". Select "DirectCall" from the category "Add-ons".
    • Tap the newly added DirectCall button to start a test call. You may need to confirm the "phone" permission the first time you do this.

    • Call a preconfigured phone number from the Locus Map main screen
    • Optionally display a confirmation dialog before calling
    • Optionally call with speaker enabled
    • Starting "DirectCall" from your apps screen/launcher will also start a call, same way as the button in Locus Map
    • DirectCall does not perform a VoIP call, but uses the default phone app on your device to start a regular phone call

    Source code is available on

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Web planner / portal
« on: November 15, 2021, 10:05:09 »
@lor74cas, @Andrew Heard thank's a lot for the clarification. Now I totally understand and believe I have a good news for you. I am just working on extension of elevation chart. After that you should have distance / time toggle for x axis.

Tools / [Tasker] Remove timestamps from GPX files
« on: November 14, 2021, 18:09:56 »
With the following Tasker task you can remove all timestamps from GPX files, a privacy option. Locus does only export GPX with timestamps.
Backup your files. It's not too thoroughly tested.

By timestamp I mean that the tracks recorded by gps and imported into the planner have no time references. It is not possible to make simple assessments
@lor74cas - do you mean display of timestamp in the chart popup? RWGPS makes this aspect so easy. Would be great to display the timestamp at any point of the track. +1

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Store
« on: November 04, 2021, 23:27:13 »
Hi lor74cas,
this is of course a good point. In the Locus Store is declared language of Rother routes as German, but it is hidden in the detail of the route. We will be probably next year working on the improved version of the Locus Store so I'll keep this in my mind ...

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.4.+ ( 23. 9. 2021+ )
« on: September 26, 2021, 13:49:13 »
thanks. I see the problem in the editing of the track names on my own device as well. Consider as fixed ...

option to define the type of activity for already created recording profiles is not possible. You have to create a new recording profile. Some really old profiles (maybe 5+ years) do not have set an activity. Maybe because of this, some of you did not get proper value in the track name. You are using Locus Map just too long :)

Search system needs a big update > big plan on the Q1/Q2 of 2022. And in the route planner? You may partially use search over menu > Add point, or the long click on the "+" button.

I also get "Prague (Praha)" for my location. I'll look at it.

75% of height? There should be a reason for this. This should happen if you use screen rotation & navigation. When rotation is disabled, it should be at 50% as expected.

What exactly means "is not working..."? It does not work over ANT+, but works over BT4?

ah, this is definitely a bug, thanks. I'll look at it.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Route planer and estimated time problem
« on: September 07, 2021, 00:38:27 »
IMHO, personalized settings exposed to profiles, already available for bicycle and car profiles, should be implemented.

From the Route Planner/ saved track, we have 15+ profiles for calculating ETA; all a compromise; none include a powered vehicle profile even though many powered vehicles are available as the routing service.

Then to add confusion (maybe just me) there are different set of 35+ track activities; many of which seem to serve the same purpose/ overlap with the profiles, but here there are 9 powered "transportation" options.

Free chat / Call Tasker Task with parameters
« on: August 20, 2021, 14:20:08 »
Guys, I just learnt, it is possible to call a Tasker task via URL scheme, including parameters (%par1 and %par2 that is).

So we can use that in Locus Quick Bookmarks.

This is awesome, a few of us might have used Tasker Secondary before, an indirect approach without parameters.

Example - see also screenshot:

Code: [Select]

Little bug.  Going cross-country (using the zig-zag icon) doesn't record any elevation gain.  On the Android, this works as expected.

@Andrew Heard, lor74cas
Yes, we know, this is kind of tradeoff. Web planner is not intended only for planning but also for exploring. When you are in exploring mode, you do not want accidentally click into map and start routing. We plan to add separate tab for the browsing later so it will be obvious if you are in planning (plan tab) or exploring  (explore tab).

Expanding and collapsing waypoints - is it still happening? I can not reproduce it (Chrome, Firefox, Safari)

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.1.+ ( 4. 5. 2021 )
« on: May 17, 2021, 16:07:25 »
Yes, I am aware of this (temporary) limitation. Currently the term in the search bar is only matched against names of points in the local-unspecified language and the language of the client. Other tags are not taken into consideration. (Cannot be taken into consideration directly, as the OSM dataset is not the only possible source of data.) How this search is intended to work (and already works internally, with some minor performance issues):
Let us assume:
- Every point belongs to one or more categories.
- English is the language of client (mobile app or web planner user).
- "wate" is the term in the search bar.

1. A localized fulltext search matches "wate" against names (in local language and in english as specified). As you noticed exactly. Currently, this is the end.
2. Another fulltext search matches "wate" against small dictionaries of synonyms (thesaurus). "wate" could mean: waterfall, watermill, drinking_water, fountain, hot_spring. Why fountain, hot_spring? Because somebody has decided that water and hot_spring are semantically close enough. These little sets of synonyms, language specific,  are configurable on the fly, not stored in a hard manner.
So suggestions are proposed after points that match by their names. Are you searching for drinking_water, waterfall, watermill, fountain perhaps?
3. If we chose one of the suggestion, another search runs (Yes, I actually mean waterfall. Yes, i actually mean all accommodation possibilities combined by typing "room"). This time a localized search matches point by their category, not name. Only category is taken into consideration here, as a source of point can be e.g. Wikipedia, which is not tagged by OSM standards.
Hope this makes some sense, I attach some dictionaries (thesauruses), both specific and more generic to make it more clear.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.0.+ ( 30. 3. 2021 )
« on: April 29, 2021, 14:30:47 »
route name > only recorded. Imported or planned has different names. Also, in the recent version, you may modify the pattern for the name of the recorded track, so ...
There's the timestamp there {t} - I was wondering - will you add more variables? Especially (next) city name is interesting.

I would love not to see "Best Interval".
Oh yes. Same, also the waypoints symbols aren't useful for me. Maybe at a later stage we can define which elements are shown, while the rest (their fullscreen windows) can be accessed via a submenu.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.0.+ ( 30. 3. 2021 )

Dragging of this vertical line was possible in the previous version. Unfortunately it
  • highly collide with swipe up/down of whole bottom dialog
  • it also reacted on the drag even like it was a click on the chart > result was the move of the map on clicked place on the chart > stupid
So, I've rather disabled this behavior because it only complicated usability.
As @fresichneider and @Andrew Heard wrote, we need something to more precisely select a specific point on the track. I think @Andrew Heard is right, I would suggest inserting the selector buttons in the title part of the track as it remains visible.
The panel could therefore not only give information on the entire track, but also have a section dedicated to information relating to the point. Furthermore, in the information relating to the point, the distance from the beginning / to end of the track itself could be mentioned.
Another possibility would be:
There is a small button in the corner of the diagram. When I click this, a small window opens directly below the diagram. There I have a sliding bar that I can move.

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Web planner / portal
« on: April 22, 2021, 06:58:59 »
There are always questions about things that are already planned. There are also some who say that it is useless because some things are missing and go back to Komoot and ....
Insert a menu at the top. There the settings and history (what was changed and when, improved. And one more point with Panung future. Many people are already doing this.
In the view for future plans:
1. planned in 4 weeks
2. later

This way you can avoid a lot of questions. And people stay with Locus and wait.
