Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion

Hi guys,
work on sync + small vacation made me "out" for a while, sorry.

Firstly, thanks for the valuable feedback regards surface types. I made another iteration, so the test will be possible in the next version. New state is attached as image to this post. It is easier for me to post a screenshot of the code directly, so hope it is readable for you (not-developers).

Hint: values separated by comma are all attached to 'Surface' value defined after '->' symbol. So for example "asphalt + paved" are attached to ASPHALT.

About versions: it is currently a little complicated as there is a basic Beta version, an Alpha version with routing, and an Alpha version with a sync system. And this most probably causes this mess. Once all will be merged (I'm sure till end of October), live will be a lot easier :).

Check link in the first post. I work on sync and routing separately, so every topic has its own versions. Once, sync will be considered as "final", I'll merge them.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.48.+ ( 28. 8. 2020 )

Thanks @tramp, based on this and also the second problem with crash after adding the WMS map, I've today published one more version: 3.48.2. Tested so it should work correctly now.

@balloni55
thanks, the TODO list for geocaching is growing and growing ...  ???

Some problems with backup ... there should be minor update in current version in cases, you get backups more often then planned. Anyway I still did not observe any "unsucessful" message ...

@tapio
may you please try you sync again? We identified and fixed issue on our server.

Ideas:
a) it needs a new "Data manager" screen (planned), but agree, will be useful
b) interesting idea, little dangerous. The question is if really needed. When the first sync after install happens, there is one alternative mode "clear device and download only", that should be enough I believe.

@Andrew Heard
as @tapio wrote, it depends on your settings (btw. full paths are under the "question mark" icon). In most cases, default settings for the Locus directory is currently the root of internal memory, so yes, databases are shared. It should not be a problem to use this shared database, but just to prevent any problems, suggest to keep backup in safe.

This is not a problem. Whole "sync" system is 100% optional feature, not a requirement.

Selection of groups to sync is currently not possible. This feature is in my "ideas to consideration" list for version 2.

Locus Map (4+) / Locus Map - cloud/sync server
« on: September 08, 2020, 13:06:05 »
It's almost 9 months since we started the work on a cloud/sync solution (since Jan 2020).

And today, we are in a moment that all internal tests were successful and the first public test is possible. Locus Map team currently consists of seven people, but still, a lot of corner cases may not be covered. Because of this, any public tests are more than welcome.

Important: use on own risk!

Important: make a full backup of your database!! This version modifies the database upon start and also may cause a data loss in case of any serious problem in client-server communication.

Version: Google Drive

Privacy: we do not yet have complete "privacy policy" document. Anyway, be aware that based on GDPR regulations, we are trying to work with data as securely as possible. We never share, re-sell etc. any data, never. It's against our deep conviction (I personally guarantee). Once Locus Map 4 will be officially published, all uploaded data on the server (not on your device!) will be deleted.

Usage:
- by default, sync (synchronization between client-server) is disabled
- the best start-point is currently over Data Manager -> in the toolbar is the "Sync" button (will be improved later)
- after the first full sync is done, automatic-sync is enabled. After any change in the database, the sync will be done automatically (with 30 seconds delay). This may be disabled in sync-settings (to work fully manually if needed).

Reporting problems
As usually, best is reproduction of problem on my own device. This means:
- a sharing your original database backup + steps to reproduce problem
- or precise description that may lead to this problem
- or if the app crash, creating a bug report by well-known method here

Known missing functionality & bugs
- automatic notification on other users devices to download new changes

Web route planner & manager of own points/tracks is in preparation (the second part of sync-system). ETA for the Beta test of this part is currently 2-3 months. For now, this tool is mainly about "cloud data backup" and "syncing between own devices".

Looking forward to some feedback ;)

Thanks for tips regards "surfaces", I'll look at it.

Zooming in "slides": I was thinking more about adding them also to segments. When you tap on the segment, there already is a chart just for this particular segment, so why not to have a way types/surface here as well.

Maps / Re: Offline LoMap Norway - sea area white tiles zoom 14+

OAM almost always (?) uses Mapsforge4 maps, so they use the new version of Mapsforge renderer. LoMaps still use highly customized V3 versions as you surely know.

Now sure how correctly works autoloading for V4 maps, but unfortunately V3 system collides with the mentioned problem. Complicated :)

Good question ... this will be more complicated :).

Please, forget on what you may see for example on BRouter web site. Locus Map won't work like this. My idea is to split all available surface & grade values into separate categories, that are clear for basic users, that may be easily described, etc.

If someone will be interested, I may publish lists we created with Petr, for possible feedback and corrections.

Thanks Hank, I've forgotten to change status here on the forum and help desk. I was trying to publish is on Wednesday last week. But Google declined this update because of some changes they request in source code. I wrote to them that I'm unable to identify any problem and ... no response. Just on Sunday, they confirmed and published upload versions ...  ::)

PS and yes, as Libor wrote, this belongs more to "regular versions" topics ;)

@john_percy
interesting problem. "Internal" ... thanks
1. settings for external and internal BRouter is currently shared
2. yeah, I know ...
3. In "Drawing mode chooser", tap on small "settings" icon. Small shortcut

Hmm is simply isn't possible to not to see these colored stripes with surface and waytype :). Do you have latest new Alpha version from Google Drive, right?

@freischneider
there is demand for custom profiles. I know about it. It's doable, but not so simple. So later please.

@T-mo
do you know any other app that is monthly updated for almost 11 years like Locus? Do not worry, I won't update internal BRouter implementation. Also I never wrote that external BRouter won't be supported. It still will be without any limits!
What I try to do, has few reasons, but the main are:
- removing need for installation of some other app from Google Play
- easier and faster download of routing files directly over Locus Map
- access to some powerful features not available over existing BRouter API

Sync: currently it is mainly for personal usage. So for own sync between devices or as a save cloud backup of own points/tracks. Some kind of sharing with the public audience will come later and agree, it will be very very important to keep some minimum quality level.

Aaaaand new version 3.47.2.2 LM4, just uploaded to Google Drive.

The main change is support for way types and surface in route planner.

I've also finalized support for BRouter custom profiles. The correct setup should be as below. The app should automatically copy profiles from the old Locus/data/brouter directory to the new.

- BRouter external (BRouter from Google Play)
  - data in the own directory
  - custom profiles are selectable when placed into Locus/router/profiles2
- BRouter internal
  - data in Locus/router/segments2
  - settings & profiles are shared with BRouter external, so also Locus/router/profiles2
- BRouter online
  - currently no config
