Discussion/New features / Re: Update of map core (2019)
« on: April 07, 2019, 19:18:48 »
I don't fully agree with Tobias and really don't understand the zooming idea.
For example, when I change from LoMap (or OAM V3) ZL 20 @ 75% to OAM Mapsforge V4 the zoom changes to ZL 18 @ 100% with the map showing the same area. That obviously seriously affects what items are displayed at what map size. Will I need to change all the zoom-min settings in the V4 theme or what?

@menion @Andrew Heard
It would appear that this is connected with certain historic data.
- Some tracks show zero distance away when sorted by "nearness" but some do not.
- For some of these "zero distance" tracks, clicking on the mini-map to move to the track's location and display it means that the distances are correct on reopening the tracks screen. However closing the app and reopening it resets distances to zero, as does re-sorting the tracks or moving to current location.
- For others of the "zero distance" tracks, the above has no effect.
I'll email my backup.

Follow the instructions above the line in the first post. Ignore everything below the horizontal line. There is no need to generate your own routing data as you can download and install the two files you need directly from the two download links given.

Thanks. I hadn't realised that. I've added a comment to the first post to point that out.

New version available in the  first post in this thread.
Summary: Continued improvement in Mapsforge v 4 theme. Better and more specific displays of mountain huts and shelters, especially with Hiking style. Improvement with display of contours, peaks, tunnels, mini roundabouts, toll roads, national borders and more.

I have just checked in Locus. Using BRouter navigation in Locus, I can choose between Locus profiles (from @poutnikl, I believe) and BRouter profiles. The Locus profiles can be further customised using advanced settings. By experiment, it seems to me that by default the various Locus walking profiles take scenic routes while the built-in BRouter profile takes the shortest route, as @poutnikl says.

In BRouter advanced settings, Locus offers the following relevant profiles, which can be applied to different buttons, along with a choice of icons:
Locus Profiles
- Hiking-Alpine-SAC4
- Hiking-Mountain-SAC3
- Walking-SAC1-SHRP
- Walking
BRouter Profiles
- Shortest

Again, by experiment, it seems that the BRouter standard profile "Shortest" is its standard walking profile.

So Locus can be readily customised to offer a shortest walking route and a pleasant walking route, if one should so desire, as in the setup screen below. For details of how to do this, I refer you to the manual!

1. I can't find any way to clear the cached images for mapsforge V4 themes. That is to say, I've changed the icon for "ruins" in a theme and the V3 theme displays the new image but the V4 theme doesn't. I've tried clearing the caches within Locus.
Edit:. The beta version displays ok.
2. The latest full and beta versions seem to crash an awful lot in use. Mainly on redrawing the screen on moving our zooming, I think.
3. "Sort tracks by nearest" doesn't work. All my tracks show "0" (in blue). I don't even understand how this is meant to work, compared to "sort by distance" to start and "sort by distance to end". Both those show a valid distance and sort correctly.

I believe that the background rectangle is not implemented for path text, despite the manual.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Brouter. Where it disappeared?

Did you try running Brouter directly, selecting the Download Manager option and downloading the routing data for the area you are interested in?

Brouter 1.4.11 apk from the website is the same version number as I downloaded previously from Google store.

New version available in the first post in this thread.
The most significant changes are revisions to dashed lines for better compatibility with devices with later Android versions and the incorporation of Mapsforge v4 (multilingual) versions.
Plus, of course, numerous other small tweaks and improvements.

This is speed auto-zoom. See http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_settings:misc#speed_auto-zoom
It's now found in Settings > Controlling > Map screen > Zoom according to speed

Car routing data is not currently available as it does not work satisfactorily (I presume).
Car routing data is now available for download again at https://graphhopper.develar.org/#maps (as in the first post in this thread) along with
  • pedestrian or walking with priority for more beautiful hiking tours (hike)
  • trekking bike avoiding hills (bike2)
  • mountain bike
  • racing bike
This seems to work fine with the Locus add on (link in the first post again), though avoid highways/tolls/unpaved road options are not available.
Thanks again to develar.
