I've spend almost two days on speed up of the cold start itself.

Holey moley, that's fast now!  No problems seen with RC2 on my Android 6 / Nexus 7 with its motley collection of maps, points, etc.

It was only a quick test, all I had time for.  Cheers..

I'm starting to really like your desertV4 theme.  Thank you very much!

There's a local urban road, highway=secondary, surface=asphalt, that appears to render as unpaved (dashed line, yellow / white).  The adjacent secondary road with no surface tag renders as solid yellow.  This is with a current OAM V4 map.

And one more suggestion for outdoorV4, if I may.  At Z14, highway=path is rendered, but highway=track (a larger path) does not.  I'd suggest rendering track at Z14 as well, because it looks odd to see paths but not tracks at that zoom.

PS, the road junctions look great in outdoorV4 now.  Thanks.

I really like the Outdoor theme, so thank you, especially for adapting it for V4.

If I can offer a few suggestions...
  • For some reason, highway=bridleway renders abnormally large.  For example, at N53 31.484 W113 32.897 on the OAM Alberta Canada V4 map.
  • Certain highway types, where they meet (eg, residential x service), are drawn such that they appear to be unconnected.  If you were to imagine the ways as pipes, water couldn't flow through the connection.  That's sent me into OSM a few times to double-check the data. ;D
  • There's no checkbox for boundaries and protected areas.  Given that the theme draws the name on each tile, and Locus still uses lots of tiles, this can lead to a display rather full of names.  It'd be nice to have the option to turn this off.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Non existing roads on World map
« on: May 11, 2018, 19:41:18 »
Yes, greatly appreciated!

Though I'll agree with John, a little less detail would be fine.  (I don't mind the current level of detail though.)  I only use the base map for orientation as I'm zooming in to somewhere.

Thus, more prominent borders would be useful.

And ... how do I say this tactfully? ... Z4 really stands out with the bold colors.  But I'm not interested in geology, just borders at that level.

But these are just minor nits.  This was a very welcome upgrade, thanks.

@Condor: G4L seems to get confused if you have both Pro and Beta installed.  Have you tried uninstalling Beta?

Themes - Dashboards & Custom screens / Re: new user blues

Hi Spellerberg.

I don't remember seeing a three-dot-menu anywhere in the app (old user manual?), but try this:

Tap the waypoint, then tap the box that pops up.  This shows the detail screen for the point.  Now tap the caret in the lower-right corner.

The first option is Edit.   :)

When changing coords, you can tap the little dot-in-circle icon; that'll give you a variety of ways to update the coords.

Elsewhere (Quick Map Switch), you label vector maps as "Smart Choice" - which they are - and also as offline maps.

A little consistency might help.  Besides, anything that helps nudge people AWAY from using tiles, especially downloading massive amounts, is a good thing.  Right?

Troubles & Questions / Re: External cards

Don't try to "import" the map from that folder.  Just place it there, and Locus will see it automatically.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Tiramisù 3 Locus Edition +
« on: November 28, 2017, 20:46:06 »
Reminds me...

One thing I've noticed is that Tiramisu (in Hiking mode) shows hiking trails less prominently than Elevate LE, which I understand it's based upon.  Notice the difference between the second and third examples above.

Personally, I definitely prefer the trails being more prominent.

But overall, a great theme.  Thank you!

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Tiramisù 3 Locus Edition +
« on: November 26, 2017, 15:08:15 »
Looks nice, yes, but I'm going nuts trying to install it.  Locus doesn't show it as an option, even after exiting Locus and [desperate] rebooting the tablet.

Do I have the file structure right?

That matches what I see in the ZIP.  (Ignoring the PDFs; I left those out.)

I've tried various other structures as well, following the example of themes that *do* show up.  Such as, adding a Tiramisu directory to hold the XML and the resources directory, or simply scattering the resources beside the XML.  None of it works.  What am I doing wrong?

(The map downloader app doesn't work.)

Thanks in advance,

WAIT A MINUTE.  Now that I've logged in to post this note, I see a download link in the post above - for a *different* ZIP file.  (Different than what I downloaded from the "box" website after a search.)  That may be the answer!  [testing...]  Yes, that one works.  Simply dropped the ZIP contents into _themes, and it works.  And indeed, it looks great.  Thanks.

But totally confusing for anybody not logged in.

Mapsforge, however, has solved the problem
I don't know where the rest of this conversation is, but it gives me hope.  I would LOVE for major labels (eg a city) to not disappear at certain zooms, especially when I'm lost over the map and trying to *find* that city.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas to all

Hi.  Just looked at this for the first time, and skimmed the wiki.  (My head is spinning.)

In the Locus UI, may I suggest: "Wet conditions".  That means, in a general sense, things are wet right now.  "Is wet" implies knowledge of the route, but you haven't been there specifically yet.

For the explanatory text, maybe "Avoid route that may be difficult in wet weather."  (In North American English, the term "road" doesn't include trails, which are part of this.)

(In spite of my user name, I'm a native English speaker; Spanish is just a hobby to support travel.)
