Live tracking / Re: live-tracking.locusmap.app web page
« on: May 02, 2019, 10:32:58 »
@Andrew Heard Thank you for mentioning this, it is true that private groups can set the "time out" to longer time.
But @lor74cas is right, this seems like a bug and increasing the time limit will only mask the problem somehow. I will add to my live tracking issues to solve.

@lor74cas Might only be a bug on the web, will have to try with two phones. The live tracking not reporting any failed transmissions might not be a problem. If there is no connection available Locus will notice this and postpone the attempt until the connection is available. The same should apply with GPS I think, so there should be no attempts to send the position until GPS fix is available.
But I would expect that as soon as a GPS or a connection is available there should be an attempt to synchronize position immediately (if last scheduled attempt had already been missed). So this is definitely not intended behaviour.

Discussion/New features / Re: Update of map core (2019)
« on: April 06, 2019, 14:47:28 »
Nice work. The map scaling is working.

I have done some quick map and theme versions checks.

Map v3: ok
Map v4: ok incl. multilanguage, ? symbol in the menu.
Map v5: ok incl. multilanguage, ? symbol in the menu.

Theme Locus: ok, but only for map v3
Theme v1: ok
Theme v4: ok, but only for map v4 or v5
Theme v5: not selectable
Are these restriction still needed?

I have seen some symbols and text on the map which are not coming from the actual selected theme. Not all elements are cleared during a theme change.

Complains about magnifier: I personally found it useful, which is why I do not see problems related to it.
@menion - I never found the UX intuitive/ only worked over short visible distance.

Any suggestion how to visualize moving point better? Btw. drag&drop works, it is just needed to move with point immediately, do not wait (otherwise long-click is performed and here comes bug).
now there are excellent alternatives to tap/ drag with magnifier it doesn't bother me.

In 3.32.2.8: as Andrew writes, the new planner is very good. I just have one comment. When I change the shaping point to a transit, I have no option to confirm the name. With the back button, changes are canceled, so the only confirmation option is a click on the map screen. I do not think this is a procedure that would follow other Locus control.

CZ: V 3.32.2.8: jak píše Andrew, nový plánovač je moc dobrý. Měl bych jen jednu připomínku. Když změním tvarovací bod na průjezdní, nemám žádnou možnost potvrdit název. Tlačítkem zpět se změny zruší, takže jediná možnost potvrzení je klik do obrazovky s mapou. Myslím, že to není postup, který by navazoval na jiné ovládání Locusu.

No problems for me; either way. I only reply to your comment "I see no reason..." with my reason :)

Just a general comment:- Until now I have used the "external BRouter" method of route planning - http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:tracks:planning:brouter. I can quickly generate X routes for X profiles, then compare & contrast. But now, finally, the new Route Planner has overtaken this method for convenience. With Shaping points & NOGO areas it just gets better & better.

I never thought about them as about tool that should "shape" an planner route. And to be true, I still see no reason for this.
Often BRouter needs no encouragement but sometimes I encourage the chosen route with a Shaping point, sometimes with a NOGO area. Each has it's use and advantage depending on the characteristics of the current route. Generally for me a NOGO is only needed for the life of the route. No longer. As my cycle touring is always to a new area.

Perfect, glad to hear it! For me it looks like some problem on Google Drive side, anyway issue should be handled in Locus no matter what happen. I'll try to improve it little bit. Biggest problem anyway seems to be, that Locus loads Drive directory even that you do not need it. I'll have to rewrite this "File browser" to something similar that I made to "Search screen" few months ago, where only single page is loaded/visible at once.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.18.x (27. 6. 2016+)
« on: August 11, 2016, 15:35:56 »
New Beta version 3.18.6.2
Many fixes already reported by users + first attempt to new version of "items" screen (available in menu > more) and first attempt to custom configuration for BRouter profiles directly over Locus.
Locus will now display also profiles stored in Locus/data/brouter (for those who wants to play with it). Such profiles also support "on the fly" definition of "avoid_motorways" and "avoid_toll" parameters. Check sample attached file if interested. Hope you find it useful.

@michaelbechtold: well, reason is currently quite simple ... because I have function "get me best vector map for this area", which is used in this case. Because all maps except LoMaps do not have precisely defined bounding area, it is little bit risky to use just a method "use current map". In such case, there is a chance, then map won't cover required area.

I'm sorry, for now I do not have a better solution. Because of this, it may end, that user itself will be able to manually choose a map, that he wants to use. Just an option ...

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] HiLo hiking theme

Hello
I think that country border lines and hike paths have a colour too similar

Hello lor74cas,
this is not a problem in locus, this is a problem in the HiLo theme.

But you're right, the colors are too similar, so I have the line style of the country border lines completely changed.

This changes comes with next update of the HiLo theme, not with next update of locus.
