Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.5.+ ( 1. 12. 2021+ )
« on: January 14, 2022, 09:38:17 »
I'll look at it, thanks.

Unfortunately, for more than a year I was not updating necessary build tools like Android Studio and many libraries around. But now it is necessary and I'm already more than a week stuck on it. Seems to be some technical problems in a few core-libs I use, so I communicate with other devs and try to solve it. Waste of time and no interesting updates = sorry. I'll publish and inform you about the new Beta as soon as possible.

Exactly this was changed in latest version @tapio, so all Androids now support this folder automatically.

@balloni55
your zip file contains some non-UTF8 characters and because of this, the app is unable to extract it (and crash). I've fixed it so the next version only notifies about the incorrect theme. Check the modified version from Willy, it works correctly.

Andrew, as visible on the screenshot here: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7632.msg66285#msg66285 , there is a difference between selected and highlighted maps. It may be united, agree. But for now, the map with the colored background is the one, you see on the right side. Map with the name in highlight color (orange) is the one, currently active.

@tapio
ah thanks. Problematic "line break" on the end of the first line. Fixed

@karlchick
the theme is unzipped to temporary cache if selected, to speed up work with it

@bezel
thanks, I've noticed this error in the automatically reported crashes. I have no idea why this happens but will look at it next few days.

@john_percy & @Andrew Heard
the new Beta version has just been generated. Please long click on the main menu button and enable "log to file" + logging of the "MAPS_CORE category. Try to simulate your issue and send me generated log from the "Locus/logs" directory, thanks!

@Andrew Heard sure I have, for example writing a blog post where I try to sum general info about theme support  ;). Hope you and others find there all answers. If not, I'll update it, of course, just ask, thanks.

Blog post on Medium.

And again, if something regards themes won't work as expected > share theme with me. John & Andrew, I'll prepare a version during next days ...

@Andrew Heard
hmm, this is a nice mystery with your maps :). If you will be interested, I may create a special version with little more logs printed ...

@john_percy
last app version + last Voluntary V5 theme? Really?? Damn, probably version also for you :)

@michaelbechtold
in the link file should be a relative path to any pdf file or just Url to any web address



Any theme or theme feature does not work? Share it with me, thanks ;)

Version 4.5.6 was just published on Google Play.

@Andrew Heard
I was checking the code and it really does not make sense to me. Update to the new version once it will be available, re-select any vector map, and give it a try again, thanks. Michael wrote about an improved logging system > this is correct, but ... I'll explain it later :). But it does not help too much here ...

@slarti76
sorry for the confusion with the "media" directory. I was not yet trying it, so it was only my guess.

@michaelbechtold
give a try to this new version. What about start performance, better? Should be.



Android is really weird since A11.
"Android/media"

App create directory with the package name, so /Android/media/menion.android/locus/x
- app may read and write here without limits
- directory is deleted together with the app!!

App may also create any! directory here, so for example /Android/media/maps
- app can not read any content from this directory. Simply request "get files" return "nothing" even I've just put few maps there.
- directory is not deleted together with the app

Interesting.

Beta version 4.5.5.3 RC

So anyone has any troubles with existing themes in this latest Beta version or generally any other problem, please let me know. I'll publish tomorrow hopefully the latest bug-fix version to Google Play.

Also for Locus Map Pro, unfortunately without "All files access" > Google declined our request already twice in row ::). So I'll try to find a method to generate a custom "Pro" version with this access just for Google Drive download. But this later.

Thanks for the help and these of you, who enjoy some free time and relax over Christmas time, enjoy it ;)

@Andrew Heard
may you please share with me at least one theme that does not work with the latest Beta version? Everything I tried is working correctly on my device, thanks.

@tapio
lag, hmm. Should be visible loading, I'll look at it. Zipped themes need a little more time compared to directories so there may be a little slowdown when checking available themes. Not during usage, there will be no performance difference!

@slarti76
sorry, any alternative to "default maps dir" is not possible. Technically it is really forced to core defined directory. And why not simply setup "mapsVector" to the private directory on the SD card?

And yes, Android/media directory should be deleted as well once app is un-installed.

As Viajero wrote, good tip!

Grabbing info about map content directly from the map should be really complicated, but online query on OSM, why not. Not too user-friendly result, but usable  ;)

I see a problem with zipped themes, thanks. Should be fixed now so I'm going to prepare the version.

@luce, @bezel
sorry, this is quite a useless report. Which existing themes do not work? How should I simulate this problem?

@balloni55
really interesting because in the code, it is ok. It happen to you as well?



Change of "_themes" is not so easy guys. More than 1 mil. of users already use this system, 3rd party web pages that allows downloading map & themes directly relly on this. There will be also a problem with these zipped themes => how to correctly update non-zipped. We may discuss this later, but I do not think it is important to change it, sorry.

Hi, "Device admin" is not a permission, but a special kind of access to high-level system features. In the case of Locus Map, the app ask for this to be able to control screen on/off turning during navigation.

Check your device system settings > Security. There should be some item named "Device admin apps", where you may see all apps that have any such special access.

Summary of the current state ...

So after a push and push on the Google support

- Locus Map 4 passed a request on "All files access" (don't ask me how this is possible, probably some India guy had a bad day). So the latest app on Google Play has temporary!! exception. We have a little more time to prepare better on limited access now.

- Locus Classic (Locus Map Pro) request was declined. Currently we are waiting on another attempt, but as expected, this should not be allowed to such kind of app at all

- latest Locus Map 4 already has enabled support for /sdcard/Android/media/menion.android.locus/maps(Vector) directory, so feel free to try it. Just insert maps there, the app should load them automagically during (re)start.

Feel free to ask if something is not clear.

Hi,
full charts visible on your screenshots are also in Locus Map 4. Just tap on the small arrow in the top right corner of the small track chart.

About seconds > I do not think they are necessary. Anyway, big charts will be changing next year, so I'll try to keep this in my mind.
