Quote from: Jan Čapek on May 25, 2023, 10:52:52But isn't "search this area" exactly this? Or do you missing it even for category highlighting?
I usually use a zoom that allows me to see a very small area on the screen because I prefer to see the details.
So when I do a search as the area is small I get few results as they depend on the zoom. I would prefer to set up the search with a filter of, for example, a fixed radius of 5 km. So I would always have the list of found items regardless of zoom.
You could show on the map the elements found that obviously fit on the screen, but also list those that don't fit in order of distance.
So if in the list I see what I was looking for that is outside the on-screen map, I can click on it without having to zoom out on the map and be directly centered to that point

A filter could be introduced to limit searches to a radius of x kilometers.
We thus avoid useless occurrences of results that are too distant both on the map and in the list.

Quote from: Jan Čapek on May 22, 2023, 17:59:36@lor74cas It is correct behavior - this just indicates directions of results outside of your map while you can be anywhere else in the real. We plan to add distances from GPS position to the list of results bellow the map.

IMHO It's not what I would have expected.
If the search is done from the center of the map or from the GPS position, it is from that point that I would like the distance to be measured.

Quote from: Andrew Heard on May 17, 2023, 17:22:41For me, track recording is 4%, and optional navigation increases that to 8% (total). Will depend completely on battery size & condition & screen brightness. I therefore (mostly) never use navigation, and simply turn on the screen briefly before any potential turn. I find looking at the map far more informative & reliable than turn instructions. I have the screen timeout for 6s. Sometimes I use POI alert but to replace navigation commands would be very tedious if lots of turns.
I agree with Andrew.
In addition to keeping the consumption of Locus under control, it is also necessary to reduce that of the device.
If you don't need to be contacted by phone, you can put it in airplane mode.
If, on the other hand, a telephone connection is needed, but it is possible to give up the internet connection, data connectivity can be disabled.

Quote from: Menion on April 16, 2023, 07:55:48The reason is currently pretty simple. We do not have (yet) a system for the automatic distribution of 1' files on mobile devices. Because of this, web and also LoRouter data are computed with 3'' SRTM data > to make it "wrong" identically on all platforms.

Btw. did anyone notice the "Altitude threshold" parameter in the track edit screen? I'm experimenting with this value. For now, this may be set only for single route. Automatically is used value 5, when using SRTM data it is equal to 3.

For my use, the app and the PC are two separate worlds that communicate with each other thanks to the cloud.
On the app, to avoid memory saturation, I would be inclined not to install the LIDAR data (only let expert and aware users do it) while maintaining the updating of altimetric data as it now happens in an automatic and precise way.
But the web server doesn't have space problems, so it could contain LIDAR data where available, updates can also be made periodically based on communications from Sonny.
You could also add a feature like this:
  • in Locus, in tracks settings an option "update altitude automatically during cloud sync"
  • tracks are sent from the app to the cloud where the altimetry is reprocessed and then sent back to the app with a flag or description indicating that the altimetry has been reprocessed
  • if you don't want an automatism, you could add an item to the already present "update altitude" in the tools with an "update altitude in cloud"

If then the problem is that of having two instruments that return two different results, just put a link on the web planner that explains what and how the altitude is calculated on the web and on the app.
Obviously it would be good to specify that it makes little sense to use a 1' reticle if you don't have a gps accuracy filter set at least below 50mt, preferably under 20mt.

because with the switch to android 13, I can't place them in the folder.

I just tested with x-plore on Android 13: even on EXT SD, this app can write to the private folders of /Android/data.
BTW: 1" alone is not delivering better results per se; only 1" plus LIDAR (Sonny's DTMs) will do.
I finally managed to install the 1" hgt files plus LIDAR (Sonny's DTMs) and they really make a difference.
To get around the problems accessing the srtm folder, I copied the files from the PC with adb by connecting the mobile phone to the PC with a USB cable.
There are several hurdles here as well:
you must have adb installed
You must have developer options enabled on your phone
you must have a good usb cable
you need to authorize the phone to connect
and you need to locate the full path to the srtm folder
but if you already have all or most of what you need then everything is resolved in a single command:
adb push /home/lorenzo/Scrivania/hgt/*.hgt /storage/self/primary/Android/data/

I am more and more convinced that the webplanner must have 1" plus LIDAR data (Sonny's DTMs). There is too much difference between what locus compute with LIDAR data on the same trace computed on the webplanner.
If, for reasons of occupied space, it is reasonable that not all the 1" data be downloaded to the mobile phone, but only those of the most used areas, I don't see why on the server hosting the palnner it is not possible to have this data for all areas where they are available.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.14.+ ( 1/2023 )
February 21, 2023, 14:55:26
Quote from: freischneider on February 21, 2023, 12:41:47I think they are exaggerating a bit here. Why do they always have the screen on ? Normally they are hiking or biking and look at the path. On Locus you look only if you need information. So the screen can stay off 70% of the time.
Yes, I agree, but everyone uses his device as he sees fit, in my case:
I start recording with Locus and only use the phone to take pictures or at crossroads when I have to choose which way to go, so during any excursion Locus is only active for a few minutes.
I prefer to turn it on for a few seconds and thanks to the high contrast of the icons I can see all the details even in full light, changing these settings in my case would be worse.
The copyright symbol could be less shiny (it's only there as a requirement) and that wouldn't be a problem, but the other icons the way I use them shouldn't be changed.

In addition, the displays have timers that first reduce the brightness and then turn off the display to avoid this type of problem, just set a timer that suits your needs.

Perhaps the problem arises for those who use Locus as a navigator in the car and want to leave it always active. If this is the problem, it would be useful to tie the brightness of the icons to a profile for example for use in the car.

I believe that instead of only checking the accessibility values ��there is a filter on the name, just like I don't allow to pass "military road" so in your case it does not allow you to pass on "tram route"

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.13.+ ( 12/2022 )

with this bookmark setup you have access to the Strava Heatmap in the desired location.
You cannot view this attachment.
The first time the browser opens you only need to log in to see the higher zoom level.

The zoom I used is fixed at 15, because using the same Locus zoom level the two maps differ too much.

No need to manage with config file, cookies, edit file as in this old post

Obviously a different result is obtained, but for someone it could be useful to easily see the most popular routes

Quote from: Menion on January 04, 2023, 09:40:45problem with the notifications > then I do not know for now, sorry.
don't worry, for the use I make with locus always open it's strange that I noticed it
Quote from: Menion on January 04, 2023, 09:40:45A limited list of apps > Locus Map does not have permission to access all available apps on the device, only the pre-selected ones. So I need to manually define supported apps. This is different compared to Tasker.
I understand. I don't know how many have not found an app among the links, for me it's the first time with Plantnet. If you want you could open a thread in the forum or wherever you prefer, so that everyone reports the missing app data in the way you need and then you can implement it in the next version.

well yes it's me again, sorry if I torment you I'm just a poor man on vacation during the holidays and it rains outside every single day.
I was trying to enter a shortcut to the plantnet app in Locus and came across this warning on the menu:
You cannot view this attachment.
and in fact I did not find the desired app among those proposed.

I then took advantage of the locus bookmarks and the teachings of Tapio

I created a bookmark that "calls" tasker, namely a task with the name Plantnet

Since for Tasker there is no problem to open any app, a simple "Launch App" command was enough to get the result.

I turned a shortcut into a bookmark and for me it's even more useful, so I have everything in the same menu.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.13.+ ( 12/2022 )

Quote from: Radim V on December 30, 2022, 10:34:36@lor74cas - this denial of access is due to the access=no and foot=permissive character of a military road. It can be fixed and I make a remark for another round of profiles-fixes. But also this is a good example of a segment, where some kind of warning should be issued anyway. A military road can be closed (at least from OSM point of view) anytime. These warnings are something we started to consider. 
This military road is closed to unauthorized vehicles, access on foot is permitted.
At the time of the former Yugoslavia the border was very controlled, there were many military structures with dedicated access routes. Now the border is almost a memory but the roads and structures have remained. If these roads are not taken into account by the planner then the routes created in these places will not be usable.
I realize that we are in an uncommon situation compared to other places.
Many paths of our mountains are made following the route of the roads of the First World War, now they are also of tourist interest.

However, if these roads marked as military they will not be included in the planner routes and it is a pity.

I think this is the correct interpretation:
access=no (for vehicles)
and foot=permissive
if it was not possible to pass on foot then we would have

I'm not very expert in mapping, I've contributed a few times to OSM, but from what I see the road I've reported has no military tag, only the name indicates that it's a military road:
access no
bicycle permissive
foot permissive
highway unclassified
max speed 50
motor_vehicle permit
name Monte Sabotino military road
surface asphalt
width 2.5

There is a special tag for military zones:
landuse military

Maybe these are the areas that could be left out as currently are from the planner.

Web portal & sync / Hide to bar in web planner
December 09, 2022, 15:49:50
I use the pc for convenience and I also do it to have a bigger screen than the phone one, so I suggest inserting an option to hide the top bar that you see in the attachment, which most of the time is a useless waste of space.
