New Beta version 4.14.2.1



@lor74cas
interesting readings, thanks! Quite a complicated task when HEIC is not natively supported in the Android API!

@Andrew Heard
Search in "All functions" is independent on the search in "Settings". For now ...

And points & tracks > I forget to write about it, sorry. A good point of course. In the next version, the first initial sync will ignore these settings, so points & tracks won't be automatically loaded!

@lor74cas
thanks for the reminder about older posts. The first is more on @Radim V , I've informed him. Second about HEIC ... well even the latest Android 13 on Pixel 5 is unable to take photos in this format. Your Samsung device is capable of?

@baegas
thanks for the NMEA file. I believe I've found a small issue. Will be fixed in the next app version.

@Tapio
the bottom panel ... thanks, I still tune some remaining tiny problems like this.

@joeloc
hmm, nice. Understand. I see a few solutions
- ignore this, oki, not ideal
- make this button semitransparent so the color on problematic pixels will change during usage
- make this button auto-hiding like the rest of the main screen UI (technically problematic because the button is connected directly to the map, not the map screen)
- allow hiding it completely, something I do not want to do because I still believe that copyright is must-have when using maps based on OpenStreetmap and others.

I'm choosing a change of style ... so the next version.

@Andrew Heard
uff, so many found issues, I'm impressed, thanks!

"Search for backup" > backup manager was moved into the Settings into the new category "Backup & filesystem".

"Notifications" > improved

"Dashboard list" > this is really really interesting. I'm unable to simulate it. In my case, the app always inserts a small gap at the bottom of the list. Hmm, I have no idea why this happens, sorry.

"Login screen" > I've plan to invest some time into this one, so thanks, note to "TODO" list added.

@baegas
to check VDOP value and why it does not refresh, I'll need from you recorded NMEA messages created in the time, the problem was visible. It may be done by enabling NMEA recorded in the Locus Map > settings > GPS & sensors > NMEA recording. Thanks.

@Andrew Heard
problem with the bottom panel > it is a work in progress. We are preparing an updated version of this panel that will hopefully help here.

@lor74cas
Weather is discussed mainly here on the help desk. Two points are solved now. "Yellow", hmm, I do not know. I may delete value by 3, but on the second side, app display 3-hours interval ...

@freischneider
trackpoint view - heh, probably because of two lines caused by the long track name right? :). Hmm, thanks.

Hi and welcome :)
It is more about OsmAnd than OruxMaps. OruxMaps is very close to Locus Map, but it is not so actively developed, and hard to say what are Jose's plans.

SHP files are fully supported in Locus GIS app. I do not think it belongs to Locus Map app as it is format focused on GIS & mapping.

Hi guys, interesting discussion. I've moved it to "Free chat" category where it belongs I believe :)

Anyway, are there any serious advantages of the OsmAnd compared to Locus Map? Some time ago, OsmAnd was made mainly for navigation and nothing more. Over years, both apps have more and more in common, but both do things in different ways.

But because I've never used OsmAnd (what a surprise  :) ), I'll be interested in the major advantage you see in it, thanks.

Hi to all. A little weird winter in most of Europe, not an ideal weather to some out-activity right? I was stuck on some really weird problems in the core of the Locus Map & Android & Gear watches etc. So this new version does not bring too many interesting news. Anyway new weather forecast & support for Garmin Varia radar should be usable additions. Enjoy it and winter as well  ;)

@Michael Bechtold
problem with centering of the map > I noticed it too, thanks. Should be fixed in the next version.

@lor74cas
dot at the end of the shared URL > thanks. I've removed it in the EN translation so others will follow.

@Andrew Heard
from where is the link to the shared web planner route? As I see, in the URL generated by the Android app, no such "double-dots" exists.

@lor74cas
problem with the notifications > then I do not know for now, sorry.

Peakfinder > thanks. I can't test it but I trust it works. Added to "Predefined" options.

A limited list of apps > Locus Map does not have permission to access all available apps on the device, only the pre-selected ones. So I need to manually define supported apps. This is different compared to Tasker.

The new Beta version has just been published. Enjoy it!

Hello Hirvitie,
Michael wrote everything I believe :). Simply try to put your maps into a sub-directory in the Locus/maps directory. Whole sub-directory will be then used as a single map file.

Hi guys,

backups & its content ... seems I'll have to look at it and rewrite a backup setup completely. I believe that the best solution should be an option to setup the content of automatic and manual backups.

NoGo points ... I know I know. Another old story  ::)

And for all ... current, sometimes not working backups > will be fixed in next bug-fix version (in next few days), sorry for this.
