It's simple: "if it isn't broke don't fix it" > everything on Android brake from time to time and needs a rewrite. Not just stuff inside, but also UI. It is not visible, but more than 50% of my time is spent on UI updates, because with every new Android, new Android library, something stops to work correctly. If I stop changing stuff, I may also stop improving and updating ... it's not broken, so why update it.

Exactly because of what you wrote, we made a decision about Locus Map future. That's main reason, why I'll be "wasting" time and keeping Locus Classic (current Locus Map Pro) with current (as much as possible) UI, current functionality etc ... to keep users who are happy with current app .. still happy.

And who won't be worry to risk a different version, there will be a new Locus Map. Don't search for some mystery here, progress can't be stopped .. at least not progress in my head :).

Anyway, you may still notice, that even that I try to make UI easier and more logical for new users, there still be a lot of options to customize it ... I have a feeling that even more than before :).

Also, suggest to check settings > GPS & Sensors > Google Services assisted location. This have a significant effect on how the location is obtained.

Libor, thanks for the investigation. You are correct, I've found one parameter that has an influence on this and that caused, that tracks above around 100km were not correctly refreshed after the calculation is done. Thanks for the big help in discovering reason for this and sorry for extra work.

Hello,
there is close to zero power needed to handle some hidden points, so no worry. If worry, then with sizes close to 100.000, but definitely not a few 1.000.

If we talk about CPU power needed when points are enabled/visible, then yes, there is of course some. How much they affect your device may be noticeable by the lower reaction of the map (decreased FPS). But here also, a few thousand of points should generally not be a problem.

Hi guys,

the new version just uploaded to Google Drive (like to download in the end of the first post).

I worked mainly on the route planner system, so let me know how you like/dislike some improvements (like "Trip generator" ;) ).

Josef, thanks for the good tip. Improved a little bit ...

@Andrew Heard
so GraphHopper, ok :)
Itinerary list behavior will be improved, thanks for pointing on this problem.

Generate trip does not work, hmm. I'll look at it.

@lor74cas
ah thanks, fixed

@jonny.blue
The geocaching part of the new point screen is definitely not finished. The current state is work-in-progress. So if, I will appreciate some feedback based on work with all points except geocaching :).

@Žajdlík Josef
in case of any problem, you should see a big notification icon (as in the current Free/Pro version), directly on the map screen. In case of only "info" notifications, only this small number on the main menu button is visible.

Terrible search? We know  :(

We already at least three times reported some obvious search problems, but no serious improvement over years ...

A few months ago, we already tried to migrate whole system to Freshdesk (the different solution), but because of existing content = no so simple.

So for now, sorry you have to use it from time to time :).

So let's move a little ;)

New Alpha version 3.44.1.2 for testing.

Three major changes:

- I'm trying to unite work with points. So in this version is introduced new screen visible over the map and also everywhere in the app, that display detail of points. It should be fully working for all points except geocaches (here is currently an option to display old screen). The same system will be created for tracks, once we all will be satisfied with points :).

- Route planner: a new itinerary that displays a list of all shaping/via points with the option to reorder. Optionally in the RP settings is an option to enable chart for segments ;)

- Route planner: when using online GraphHopper, you now get an alternative route (if GH server think it exists). There is missing some more simple way to compare both routes, anyway, it's already well usable.

Feedback is of course welcome.

Version for download here

Nice to read it Jonny :). I also have problems to work with recent public Free/Pro version now  ;D

I spend an unfortunately unbelievable amount of time (more than a month) on creating united screen for points and I'm still not perfectly satisfied with it  :(. Anyway, I'll try to close most of remaining problems and generate a new Alpha version hopefully during this week.

@flyingman_ch
thanks very much for reported bugs. The problem with a missing number of items in folders will be fixed in the next version (this week).

Unfortunately, I'm unable to simulate this "If I have logged a cache, Locus will exit when I click the Back button." problem. Does it happen with every cache you log? Immediately after you confirm the log?

@Andrew Heard
you will see in the next version if the change I made today helps. Anyway, you may agree that it looks really weird when you completely "covered" info panel with buttons :). Fortunately for you, in LM4 this won't happen :).

@Andrew Heard
in the next version, the drag area will be a lot bigger, so give it a try, thanks.

@slarti76
not sure how often you switch landscape/portrait, but you may quite easily cover this by the system of Presets.

Thanks balloni. It works for you correctly?
The great advantage is that in case you use the app mainly in the landscape, you may have full top bar with buttons, no matter, how long is it, if you use a tablet or tiny old small phone, etc.

After a quite long time, a new Beta version on Google Play.

Among a few fixes & updates, there is mainly a nice new service called "Web service library". Probably some of you know this older list of WMS maps we collect here. Half of them already do not work etc ...

New Beta version offers a new service that collects these web services (option "Add to library" in the context menu of any added map) and mainly offer them to users. On the background, the server test these maps every day to validate it still works correctly. We have a few things in the head to improve, but for now, some feedback will be welcome.
