Other features / Re: LoMedia - photos for online LoPoints
« on: June 27, 2022, 17:20:27 »
Hi guys, thanks for this discussion, all noted.  ;) We are for sure aware of benefits of making all changes in the POIs easier.  We are planning to analyse our further steps related to this topic in upcoming months as there are several possible paths for the future.

For now and in this thread, we are focusing to properly beta-test "LoMedia" attachments to LoPoints. Now mainly technical side and "intuitiveness" of the process as other updates related to user's motivation to upload their photo are on the way.  :) Feel free to use last beta of Locus Map to upload photos which will already be shown to others in public version. They already goes to final DB, so you can be one of the first to provide such media content on our platform. ;)

When opening a LoPoi, you used to be able to click on the puzzle and there was the addon: LoPOI.
With it you could also make changes in OSM. Unfortunately, the AddOn is no longer available. It only appeared there when it was installed.
Suggestion: At this point you could now place the APP OSMgo.

I was thinking about editing. Perhaps it would be enough to add a small button with a direct link to editing text via the eight or Wiki website. Depending on where the text is taken from.
There is an app for editing POI in OSM. Its name is: OSMgo
Menion has recently added it to Apps in the sidebar.
With the app you can change properties of POI very easily. Also the name can be changed.
I often use it to add on the way, opening hours, website, phone number of restaurants.
This app could be added in POI to change.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.9.+ ( 04/2022 )

@Zajdlík Josef, @lor74cas
ah, I probably get it. Not a technical problem you should worry about, just a notification that should not be visible. Fixed, thanks.

Petr just tested it on his new Samsung device and no such problem with PiP as you have. Really interesting. I'll be probably looking on this function a little more later, and because it is not a critical issue, let it be for while, thanks.

This change automatically generates shaping points on recorded tracks on places, which should help easily modify the recorded track in the Route planner without a worry, that by movement on a single point, the whole track will be totally changed (as it worked before). If you do not have needs to modify recorded tracks, this feature has no benefit for you ...

Web portal & sync / Re: Web planner / portal
« on: March 31, 2022, 15:26:50 »
@Žajdík Josef
Thanks for nice explanation. I am answering in English so others know what this is about.

Described problem: Imported track from GPX file can be without elevation data. It would be useful to have some mechanism to load (optionally?) missing elevation data for selected track during import. Currently only possibility to do it is to:
  • Load track to planner - does not work properly because track is recalculated
  • Open track in Locus map app and fill elevation data there which is not convenient

Solution: I am adding this on our list ... but I am afraid that it will take some time :/ because we need to bring elevation service into the cloud environment.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.8.+ ( 04/2022 )
« on: March 31, 2022, 08:27:04 »
a) ah, custom "mapsVector" directory, thanks, fixed
b) fixed

@Žajdlík Josef
I'm stupid, thanks, will be fixed today

@Andrew Heard
1) right. The issue was caused by the work on the dashboard, but it may be fixed only by the new version.
2) I'm convinced that a single united "Dashboard manager" screen is the ideal solution, but I'm open to improvements of course.

The steps you wrote are correct. Most easy is now a long click on the dashboard button in the panel.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.7.+ ( 03/2022 )
« on: March 30, 2022, 10:27:26 »
I wanted just to notify about the news on the web planner. Because this is (fortunately) mainly the task of Jan and Ondřej, I do not have to care about it and also do not have to help solve problems :P

So best to report any problems, as it usually
- generic repeatable issues on our help desk (probably fastest method)
- or for a more advanced topics or discussion, I've created a board here on the forum. I'll inform Jan and Ondřej to watch this board so they should hopefully react faster than when I have to inform them like now I do. Thanks

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.6.+ ( 02/2022 )
« on: March 09, 2022, 08:12:50 »
What a stupid idea with re-signing apps?? Not just Locus, but many different apps won't work correctly after this!! Bleee

@Žajdlík Josef
hmm, it will probably need a higher internal ID for Beta versions. I'll keep this in mind.

- yes, the profile is used to compute times. Any big differences to reality?
- I'll think about it. This limit was created because GraphHopper service was paid and I had to reduce the amount of requests to be within certain limits. Anyway, I'll look at it ...
- graphical problem: how you did it?  :D

@Žajdlík Josef
Do you mean adding your own photos to our public LoPoints? This is currently a work in progress and will be available this year for sure. Otherwise please describe it a little more, thanks.

Thanks a lot balloni. I've just fixed the crash and updated the icon and generated a new version under the same ID, so just simply update to make it work again.

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

Menion, I have tons of large maps on SD card, even on older devices. There is no performance problem using them in higher ZLs (although for sure you can MEASURE a significant difference).
A DATABASE on SD however, I would not even try, because the effect is obvious.

we all are well aware this is the problem (Android 11+ limitations). On the second side, to be true, I'm still not convinced, this may be a major break in the app usability. I'm looking forward to next week when we finally find the correct answer.

Topic & voting: I've expected, it may be a task that should take quite a lot of time, that I currently do not have. So voting may help me better decide if this isn't the idea of just a few people here on the forum ...

Another fact is, that most Androids are NOT Pixels. But rather the majority employs external SD card support, to allow for cheaper storage extension.
This is based on known facts? We are talking about devices with Android 11. Most of the modern devices are created with bigger internal memory instead of support for external SD cards. Sure, SD cards are usually 4x time cheaper, I know. Also, I made just a quick benchmark, and LoMaps from the SD card (average class 10 card) is 9x slower than LoMaps from the internal storage. You are the one who fights for faster maps ...

Manual updated a lot, hope for good.

@Žajdlík Josef
Understand. To have fast maps, it will be necessary to limit number of maps on the device. As I wrote above, SD card, no matter what I do, will never be too fast.

New version MapGooglePlay_4.4.3.31 RC_1045 just published.

It should have mainly
- option to move mapsVector and SRTM directories to the private directory on the external storage (SD card)
- integrated links to manual pages

Let me please know mainly if this nighly update in custom directories will work correctly for all of you. Thanks

I really have to agree with Michael here. I have no problem to open a Help Desc topic, that's not the point. But this is too slow for this important topic. I have friends for whom I am the "Locus guru", but who would never take the time to log in on the help desk or whatever. And they all have big maps on extSd that they can't move to internal.
And I'm still not even sure from the Manual entry: Does Locus even offer to move all data to extSd instead of intSd on first start with new version? The manual is not explicit on this. I'm honestly not willing to try out Beta this time (even though I always do), because this is obviously a one way street. I would be ok if you say "Google forces my hand, for now you'll just have to do it, and you can move to extSd, but next I will implement way to divide big and small data between intSd and extSd". But making this dependent on a lengthy voting process is very disappointing - and potentially p***ing off many users. As Michael says, don't underestimate the amount of users with cheap phones with small internal SD, slapping a big MicroSD into the slot...

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

In the route details. Can I move the "hide" button to the bottom bar?
Haha... For me, "Hide" is maybe the most used command and "Share" amongst the least.

So many ideas because of three tiny colored dots  :)

the issue with a refresh of the track: thanks TODO

With a dual centering button, rotate icon should really be visible, it is intent. With this solution, you may simply disable rotation without affecting centration.

If "dual-mode" needs an extra rotation button was discussed a half year ago a lot and yes, it needs  :).
Good sample: center, start rotating, move with the map - now disable rotation in case you do not have this "rotate" button.

ah, dot attached to centering button in case, rotation is disabled and dual-centering button is enabled, is a bug, thanks

ah, the clickable area behind ... not so simple task => is this really needed? I'm more thinking about and option to put these buttons into function panels - but this also is not so simple task  :-\

Rotation mode
I also think that icons should not be so obtrusive. Some small "A", "M", symbols should be enough. I'm waiting on our graphic.

But, the indicator is needed from my point of view. If the map rotates by the GPS, it may not be clear that rotation is enabled. Also if you start rotation of the map manually, it may not be clear that the map won't rotate by sensor anymore.

@Žajdlík Josef
thanks, as I wrote to @balloni55, the dot attached directly to the big centering button is a bug, thanks!
