Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion (beta)
« on: January 11, 2021, 19:50:25 »
@Diddi
thanks for the feedback.

- top bar > maybe later. Agree that on bigger devices, there is enough space for the second panel

- cache logs: button has standard size, so clickable area is the same as for e.g. refresh button. Refresh of logs is problematic because it is not done by Locus Map directly, but it's done over 3rd party app (G4L) > complicated.

- GC side menu: hmm it was opened by a slide from the right. Right, good point. You are this first after a few months of testing who point on this problem, so definitely not a serious issue ... how to solve it, hmm  :P

- missing options in the GC menu? Should not be. You may define two quick buttons to the bottom panel. If defined, these functions are then missing in the top-right menu, so maybe this is your case?

- third shortcut > added to TODO list, thanks

- "more" below listing. Well, as you wrote above, "arrow is too small". I consider listing as very important and also app display longer part of it, so the button below makes sense to me.

- short text in popups > it is a global problem across the whole app, not just here. I'll look at it, thanks.

@slarti76
hmm ... I wrote it somewhere, not clearly, that since the new public Beta test version, we cleared the server database and switched the whole infrastructure to the final production-ready system. So now all data remains on the server like with the regular final version. But, your old app communicates still with a testing server that is already empty. Maybe from here comes a problem? I'm sure it is, there is no other explanation. So please use the new version, thanks.

@freischneider
I'm not sure if Michal wants to be already public, but yes, the work-in-progress manual is already in preparation here.

@balloni55
hmm, I was thinking about this problem before as well and agree, it may be a little more complicated. As you clearly display in the video, the map is visible only in case, point detail is not shown by click on the point directly on the map. This was previously solved by the "map" button in the bottom panel ... so return it back? Hmm ...

Locus Map (4+) / Routing over online/internal BRouter
« on: January 08, 2021, 15:08:43 »
Another big separate topic in Locus Map 4 we work on, is the routing system.

Implemented since: Locus Map 3.50.0.1 (file: MapGooglePlay_3.50.0.1_981_beta.apk)

After a long discussion, the app now fully integrates BRouter based solution.

Online routing service
- in the app sources available as BRouter Online

Offline routing service
- in the app sources available as BRouter (inner)

Both services use identical routing profiles, so you should get identical results. Internal solutions offer few parameters in every profile. Should be anyway little slower, mainly on low-powered devices.

What do we want to do for now? Fine-tune current existing quite "general" profiles before we step forward in creating more

Small promo: Petr and Radim invested an enormous amount of time & own passion into creating an online version of LoMaps (will be used as default map after the start of the app and also mainly on the web in Route planner) and an online version of LoPoints. If you find some time and test it, or better use it and will have some feedback, they will appreciate it: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7191.0

And now back to Android :)

@freischneider
ah, now it's clear. You use the "GPS button" (where I use rather "centering button") so it confused me. Good point! Improved.

@slarti76
thanks for the additional info. Can't imagine now, how this change of accounts may cause any problem. Anyway, as I wrote, I'll be watching it.

Sync problem: hmm, this really should not happen. Are you 100% sure, there were no edits on the mentioned track on device B before sync? Even a simple refresh of the track preview image in data manager causes "edit" > sync, or just change of name, style of track etc...

@auric
hmm, the "auto-save" parameter is optional, I just double-checked it.
What a weird problem. I've just set a task with Tasker with exactly same parameters as you wrote, then I split screen on the device with Locus Map & Tasker and the test was correct, no matter if auto-save is enabled in intent, in profile or disabled. To be true, I can't imagine what may be a problem here ...  :-\

@Andrew Heard
it currently does not work exactly like this. Original selected map remains active as "base map" and auto-loaded maps are only attached to it. In the case of vector maps it is a little more complicated, but the active map (not the original selected) should appear as "active" after some time.

Hmm, hard to describe as I even don't exactly remember this :).

New update version MapGooglePlay_3.49.1.11_979_beta just published!

Hey, and the new year is coming? Hope you are all healthy and enjoy at least little nature and wind in your hairs instead of sitting home with Locus Map (like me)  ;).

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion (alpha)
« on: December 22, 2020, 12:22:34 »
Hi guys,

I've just created a new topic for Locus Map (4) testing. We have moved to probably final phase ... some more public testing & finalization.

I've also hoped that the web planner will be available for the test till the end of the year, but unfortunately not. So expect it at the start of the new year.

New topic: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7188.0

Thanks all for your very useful help & your surprising patience with me and what we create here  ;)

Locus Map (4+) / Locus Map 4, discussion (beta)
« on: December 22, 2020, 12:20:09 »
The new base topic for discussion about soon coming to Locus Map (version 4).

When?
The realistic release date is in February 2021.

How to help?
Best to use it like the regular version and report possible problems & spread praise ;)

Latest version for download (still named 3.x)

Sub-feature topics:
- Online LoMaps & Online LoPoints: here
- online/offline BRouter routing: here

What changes?
Locus Map Free > will be changed to Locus Map and actively developed. Changes in this topic will be included mainly in this version.
The system will be similar ... functionality for free will be +- equal to the current Locus Map Free. With an active subscription, current "Pro" features will be activated + a bunch of new features we work on last two years.

Locus Map Pro > will be changed to Locus Classic and will be in permanent maintenance mode. What does it mean? Still updated together with Locus Map with fixes and minor improvements to keep it fully working & stable. Ideal for users who like the current solution and don't like changes or planned subscription model. I believe, more than a fair offer ;).

To be fully fair, I rather do not want to say "forever". I personally set a minimal maintenance mode for five years. Work on both versions will bring the need for some extra time investment, so it depends on how much... But 5+ years is the minimum. And who knows what will be after five years ...

Reference to the older topic related to alpha testing.

New version MapGooglePlay_3.49.1.8_976_beta just uploaded.

There is quite a long list of changes, as usually after the app start. Petr and Radim will probably create a separate topic related to online LoPoins and new online LoMaps, so if anyway, one will have feedback on this topic, please wait for the mentioned separate topic.

Thanks and wish you a nice weekend!

New version 3.49.1.7 - 974 just uploaded.

@tapio
Sure, it isn't, because I was preparing a version working with a new cloud sync server as mentioned before.

All data you sync since now will be stored in the final production server. No more changes in server & structure are planned.

Warning
Tomorrow will be completely removed content in the sync database (it has no effect on data on the devices). We are doing the last fine-tunning. The new application will be prepared tomorrow with a connection to the final database server.

What you will have to do:
- install tomorrow new application
- from your primary! the device, upload (again, yes sorry), your data to the cloud

Suggestion: there is nothing better than good old "full backup" on the primary device before sync ;).

Thanks for understaning. Btw. web route planner is really close for first public test ...

@tapio
E5_N50 is missing? How do you try it? I try download routing data for France North and this segment is available.
You wrote it is very "tiring". Currently are missing two main features: background download and download directly over the Route planner. Does this helps to make it less "tiring"? :)

Geotagged photos > thanks, fixed!

Removing waypoints from the track > I'm unable to simulate any problem with the latest version. May you please write to me (again?) more precise steps to simulate it? Thanks.

@balloni55
problem with the edit of waypoints: ah, it does not work for any waypoint to me. Thanks, fixed.

"Temporary disabled cache" > this is a really rare case :). Thanks, fixed

Crash in LMP: aaaa! Damn. New points stored in LM4 has a problem with open in LM Free/Pro. Thanks, will be fixed in the next update. Just all new points from LM4 (or just uprated), needs to be saved/imported again, sorry.

@Andrew Heard
if you may just zip it and share it with me, it will be perfect, thanks!

"Quick action menu" > heh, it was created a long time ago, correct, for CarpeIter controller. It was never officially published and to be true, I'm not sure if it has any extra usage without direct open from the hardware controller. Are you using it?

BRouter downloader > sure, a background task is a must-have. I first test if it works at all.

The initial directory in backup > ah, I know about this for months and always forget to fix it ... hmm, complicated than expected, but fixed, thanks.

Summary of sync task: hmm quite a complex task. The device in the first step sends to the server's current state since a certain date (usually last sync) and then receives many calls, steps that need to be done. So to do this, it will be necessary to completely change this login and firstly delivered to the device what will be done in the next steps for confirmation. Well, quite a lot of work ... maybe I should change the word "deleting" for "updating" :)

"Quick settings" ... checking ... should be stored in backups!

@john_percy
app detect during start all available directories that already have some data. So yes, it is an "Android system" folder, but it contains some data, for unknown reasons. Not a serious issue, because usually Locus Map warns during start if there is any problem. This is usually used more for our support on the help desk, where we may detect if the user really uses the directory he thinks he uses.

This most probably won't be related to LM4. When you install LM Free/Pro, the result will be most probably the same.

Is the Locus Map directory in the internal memory? If so, all should work correctly so this may only mean really some problem with DB.
The best should be to rename Locus/data/database to something like Locus/data/database-backup. Start the app and try sync, it should work. If all went well, you may send me your backup database directory, maybe there is any issue with it I may fix in the app. Thanks

@balloni55
thanks for the info. The link on the second video in your comment is the same as on the first, is it correct?

@Andrew Heard
thanks for the backup, problem found and solved.

Track record button in presets > added.

Missing "hide" options for the bottom & right panels are currently intent to prevent accidental hiding of panels with the content. If you want to have it hidden, simply don't insert buttons there, as you did with your bottom panel.

Problem with the zoom-out > can't imagine a different reason than active "zoom-lock".



Green recording button > it is an optional feature. You may change it's behavior in settings to auto-hide (it was before) or hide it permanently if wanted (Andrew's dream).

Flashing ... I found it hardly visible, but quite useful during foggy days we had in ČR. Give it a try in the field ;). I also miss some animations here and there, so wish me a little fun ;).

@Henk van der Spek
thanks for the info about the incorrect style of navigation route in the reverse direction. The issue found and fixed.

@Žajdlík Josef
1. as 0709 correctly wrote, check the mentioned settings. Also agree Willy, that is should be somehow united.

2. I also have a bigger update related to presets in my head that will hopefully help in this case as well. Next year hopefully ...

@Christian
So my steps are exactly what you do + enabled "energy saving" in your device?
