Troubles & Questions / Re: new track via OSM api
« on: July 21, 2022, 20:10:28 »
Select the track.  Edit as necessary.  Tap "..." in the bottom-right corner, Export, select OpenStreetMap.  Provide login details if needed.

It works well; I use it a lot.  :)

PS, that sends it to the "GPS Traces" list, not directly to the map database.  As you might know, directly uploading tracks to the map database is discouraged, as it's typically noisy data.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.10.+ ( 06/2022 )

I suggested "Fine Tune", but it wasn't my first choice.  "Edit Track" would be better (if not causing confusion with "Edit Info"), or "Track Editor" if a noun is appropriate here, or even "Modify Track" which I think was the original text.  "Modify Track" sounds ideal to me.

I'm not sure if nouns are appropriate as menu commands, but there's an advantage to the command being the same as the title of the screen that shows up, eg Route Planner, Track Editor.

4.9 seems to have fixed the navigation-becomes-guidance issue I mentioned upthread, thanks.

Can't be absolutely sure without spoofing GPS or physically going back to the trail, but I'm pretty sure.  :)

The "Quick Bookmark" feature can help, especially if you add its button to one of the function panels.  Hit "+", predefined, OpenStreetMap, then "x" because it gives no indication it worked.

Now, move the map cursor to the item of interest, tap Quick Bookmark, then select OpenStreetMap.  It'll open a browser window to the OSM "Query Features" page.

Other features / Re: Android 11+, changes
« on: November 27, 2021, 18:21:57 »
Terminology is really confusing here.  "Internal storage" vs "Internal memory" in the Set Working Directory dialog.  "Internal" vs "External" in this discussion, but both seem to be inside the phone somewhere.  Those who know that one is removable and called "SD" would be confused by an "Internal" option being /sdcard/Locus, which (I think) is in non-removable memory despite the "sdcard" name.  I think only an Android developer could understand all this.

Here's the chance to be clear and non-confusing.  And if there's no need to worry because you're on Android 10 or lower, then please say so in the UI.  Thank you.

OAM maps ( are similar, and update on their own cycle.  That's monthly for Europe, 3-4 months (argh!) for the rest of us.

Which map will show your work first?  It's pretty random, but you can expect to wait.  Online maps, of course, will update much faster.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.4.+ ( 23. 9. 2021+ )

To clarify...  After moving directories, the files left behind in Locus/mapsOnline were named LoMaps_Hike&Bike.*, with sizes 443kb, 340kb, and 32kb.
I believe that was from the map that was shown by default after the move (during the move?), and the smallish file sizes would reflect a single screen of tiles.  I immediately switched back to my usual vector maps and re-selected the theme.

Selecting other online maps afterward does NOT add more files to this folder.

EDIT:  It also seems to have forgotten the selection for a pre-loaded global map.  But I was able to re-select it manually.

I tried the beta (from the Android 11 folder) on my Android 9 phone.  (That part made me nervous.)
  • On startup, it said, "Working directories ... have been changed ..." (this is a SCARY message), and gave only one option: Internal storage.  Only one?
  • Checked About.  The "duplicate" message is gone, simply /sdcard/Locus.
  • Went to "Set working directory".  Now it showed two options:  Internal storage and private folder in internal memory.  I double-checked the backup, crossed my fingers, and changed it to private folder, clicked Move.
  • After a few minutes, Locus restarted.  I needed to re-select my preferred map and theme, odd, otherwise, all seems well.
  • In an external file manager, I see /sdcard/Locus is almost empty, except for mapsOnline containing 3 sqlitedb files for the hike-and-bike map that showed briefly after restart
  • NOW the About once again shows "duplicate folder", see attached.

Have you tried OpenAndroMaps with the Elements (not Elevate) theme?

Elements is designed for sparsely-populated areas, and shows elements as soon as their data appears in the file, rather than keeping them selectively hidden until a higher zoom level.

OAM are very similar to LoMaps, but - ironically - they render better in Locus than Locus' own maps.  That's because OAM and the Locus app both support MapsForge V4, but LoMaps are still stuck at V3.

I confirm the fix for the white bottom panel in the latest beta, thanks!

Tested on both my devices (nothing special, nothing broken on the older one).  :)

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.1.+ ( 4. 5. 2021 )

Steps to reproduce the visible-data-points issue:
  • Phone + tablet both running beta.  Cloud sync options on both devices are: first three items on (including "show new points"), fourth item off.
  • Each device contains a folder of geocaches, same name, previously sync'd, all points manually displayed via taps on folder icon.
  • On phone, under Geocaching Tools, Load PQs, select multiple PQs and tap Import.  (No caches appearing in more than one PQ, no overlap.)  Select that folder, and check the first and third checkboxes (delete, show).
  • Wait for import to finish, then for sync to finish, then for sync to finish on other device (tablet).
  • Result: oddity on tablet, as shown above.
  Hope this helps. :)  Thanks, also thanks for the quick fix to the other stuff.

PS, please ignore my first "Also" paragraph.  There's too little info for a proper bug report, and it's likely just part of the main issue.

Now I can't duplicate the "Hide" issue either.  It seems to have gone away with the .1 beta.  8)  (It applied to points I had manually created some days earlier in the Favorites folder.)  Now, after choosing a destination name, there's a momentary delay (new) and the details panel slides up (new) with info including the updated folder name.  Now - as expected - Hide is available and working.  Thanks!

Web portal & sync / Re: Web planner / portal

Little bug.  Going cross-country (using the zig-zag icon) doesn't record any elevation gain.  On the Android, this works as expected.
