Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.10.+ ( 06/2022 )
« on: July 26, 2022, 15:34:45 »
Hi guys, thanks for the nice discussion regards presets. I'll have to read it carefully and let you know in the new topic related to the new 4.11 version here.

It was long two months. Some vacations on our side (hope you all had some too), but mainly work on support for LoPoints photos (Marek) and many smaller improvements and fixes (myself).

Hope you find the new versions useful. Well, I'm sure you did because as usual, many of the changes were initiated by you   :). Thanks again and enjoy a (little too much) sunny days.

There is more options on how to improve Presets. I'm still playing in my mind with two
- remember state before applying preset and allow restoring the previous state (already used in the navigation!)
- change the whole concept that you will be always in one active! preset (profile) and will just switch between them
I don't think the second option is a great idea: If implemented like that, every change of a setting *must* also change the active preset. That's definitely not what I want: If e.g. I change the map theme, I still want the original preset theme when I next activate it.
Only solution to this, I think would be that every change puts you in "unsaved preset", which you then can save, or discard when activating another preset. That would actually be cool, but I image it being rather complicated to implement.
Currently, I'm very happy with the existing system.

I'm just not sure if I want to spend quite a lot of time with the second option (that I like more) ...

@arnor
discussed in a separate topic, weird anyway

@baegas
hmm, finally, amazing! Thanks for the patience.
More info about current GNSS status is already done in Locus GIS. I'll think about how to bring these values to Locus Map as well. Well, firstly we have to internally confirm, that NTRIP support should be added to Locus Map  :)

@Andrew Heard
eh 1500m jump, that is not nice  :). Well, the app already skips the first few locations to avoid these problems. But I also noticed almost everytime, that the first few points have a higher elevation than it should be. Oki, thanks for the push, I'll at least look it ...

@luce
- "Navigation menu" > thanks, got it
- Empty screens > hmm, it seems to work correctly for me. Hope it was just a temporary problem of "older" version
- "Screen off, alt. version" > as I see, I was not touching this function since January. Sorry, no idea ..
- align of the side panel > thanks, fixed

just in case any of you beta users missed this comment from @menion https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/28029-v4-gui-improvement-by-offering-more-freedom-of-panel-placement#comment-115823 (29th June, currently 2nd to last comment in thread) just imagine the possibilities of laying out all your own buttons & other GUI objects on a fully custom dashboard - wouldn't that be awesome ;D

No problem.

Some cool feature I found.
Searched for a restaurant. Selected the search result. Added a point at that location.
Locus filled out not just the address, even Telephon Number and Url. Genius.
Thanks Locus team.

@tapio
thanks for the other test of the dashboard. Damn ... so next attempt, sorry for this.

@luce
align of a content button & zoom buttons > thanks, improved. Small buttons are now aligned to "Map content" button. Big zoom buttons now, but here it does not seems to be so visible = no problem. Btw. nice usage of the "grid"  :D

Scale view > good point, fixed.

@CabrioTourer
ah, M4a was not considered as an "audio" format. Should be fixed, thanks

Not working link > thanks, the problem was in "comma", fixed

@balloni55
Hmm, this is weird. And without NTRIP you are able to get any sats & accuracy? If so, what happens when you enable NTRIP a little later (once you will have valid fix & sats)?

@baegas
If you long click on the app main menu, there is an option "Log to file". If you enable this option and try it again, app should create a log with more info in the Locus/logs directory. This file should help, thanks.

@Andrew Heard
The dark compass button was really a problem with the current red rose. Because of this, I've left it white for now.

@T-mo
- hexagons in semi-transparent buttons > weird right? Some issue in the Android library that is visible only in case, buttons are semi-transparent. I was trying to find and hack on this > but no success so far.

- "lock button" > hmm almost invisible, good point

@luce
search, well ... I do not think there is a need to explain anything. Search is bad in the app and it is something we will work on this!! year for the app and also for the web. What you see is the combined result of the search of the selected search engine and also our own online LoPoints (colored symbols). Thanks for understanding.

Hello Menion,
just a visual thing: The zoom buttons and the map content button are not exactly aligned. Probably this was the case all the while, but now, with all buttons having the same colour, it catches my eye :)
Best, Lucas
for me the effect only occurs when the zoom button size is set to small

No one has commented on the change of Zoom button color in 4.10.0.8. I like it - consistent with other buttons & better contrast, but being such a big visual change I'm hoping there isn't a user backlash & reversion to original color scheme :D

*** Beta 4.10.0.4 ***

Hope you all enjoy this year also some nice "vacation" activities  ;)

I don't understand why "Routenplaner" was replaced by "Route neuberechnen."
For me this describes a function in navigation, but here it is no recalculation but a modification of an existing track.
Suggestion: Route ändern / editieren / modifizieren... Or rename it "Routenplaner" like it was before.
This is rather a problem of the German translation - the English original is "Re-route" meaning "change the route progress in the route planner". I'll change it to "Route ändern" then. Thanks!

OK, we're renaming it to "Edit track". It is more generic than "repair" or "fine-tune" and the tool in which it is done is called "Track editor". Hopefully this will suit the majority.

I agree, "Edit track" for me is a better discription of this function.

"Fine-tune" terminology. Why? I guess to distinguish from Route Planner. But imo it's a weird choice. After all, it is a track editor. And e. g. I don't expect split/merge under fine-tune.

*** Beta version 4.10.0.1 ***
Minor fixes + NTRIP client for test.

@CabrioTourer
I know. No-go points are handled independently of the points database. And this is an older idea > separate folder just for no-go points. This should solve many problems ...

Ah, I've forgotten to look at the problem reported by @luce, sorry, next time.

These no go areas are very important to force the route algorithm not to route through Italien villages. Very dangerous in the Alps.
Off topic, but why are Italian Alpine villages dangerous?

Btw. new version just published on the Google Play.

@Andrew Heard
Do not think about the option to make via-point silent as a third type of point. These points are still via points with tiny options to not notify during navigation, that's all.

Shaping points are a core feature of route planners and I still consider it a very good choice for planning routes, so no changes are planned here.

@slarti76
ah I see it now, thanks. Will be improved in the next app version.
