Troubles & Questions / Add picts or additional text
November 20, 2022, 17:48:21
I received 100 gpx files and some text and pictures that explain them.  I don't think it's possible but can I attach a picture or text file or embed additional text within a folder???...not the individual gpx files.  if not it would be a good feature to have a repository for attachments that is also backed up.

Troubles & Questions / OS8 vs OS11
November 17, 2022, 16:24:53
Using locus for motorcycling I had a tough time seeing the screen in direct sun so I set out to get a brighter phone.  I could spend $800+ for an S22 or $100 for an LG G7 ThinQ which has an amazing 1000 nits IP LCD screen so I am trying that.  The first one had brain damage on android 9 and I had to send it back the 2nd one has a normal brain seemingly stuck on android 8.

Does locus function fine on 8?

If so, will locus continue to function fine on 8?...or will I need 11?

Maps / USGS PADUS V3 with BLM layer
October 09, 2022, 17:10:53
Petr was kind enough to get this working as an online maps source earlier this year so the layer could be downloaded for offline.  Then recently it stopped working.

It took a bit of trial and error but apparently USGS changed some names of folders when they put up the newest PADUS v3.

Here is a WMS https://gis1.usgs.gov/arcgis/services/padus3/Fee_Managers/MapServer/WMSServer?

If you want this layer in your online maps list (downloadable for offline) add the code in the attached xml to your list in the providers.xml file and add the png.

I think Locus should have this source in their base providers list at install.

Troubles & Questions / transfer WMS?
October 07, 2022, 16:25:18
I had to move phones and managed to get everything over using a full back up and restore but it did not bring the WMS list.

1.  How do I copy that over?

2.  How do I edit names of folders and WMS links in the menu?

Thanks,

Troubles & Questions / Other app for MVUM yuk
September 04, 2022, 17:45:55
I recently went to the Mountain West Overland Show here in Colorado USA and had a conversation with one of Gaia's top devs.  I told him they seem to be more interested in expanding map content and not fixing the basics.  I explained that I preferred Locus but do use Gaia on occasion as the maps are second to none.  I then told him why I thought Locus is superior, this was in a crowded booth so it was a bit dicey....anyhow he was nice and said they will be fixing the basic stuff.

Now the other day we decided to run a new area here and I could not get Locus to display even close to the map data that both Gaia and Caltopo serve up with just one click.  See this https://youtu.be/0NSlu4lerN0

Somehow maybe Petr or someone can get MVUM to work as an online map source like he did with FS-Topo or as a WMS layer as he did with Public lands/BLM.

I can get altitude to color the line properly but not slope unless I try to enter values manually and it's still not what I want.  I tested other tracks and it works on them.  How do I get the line to be colored with red as uphill and blue as downhill with darker shades as higher slope angle???  Used to work fine?  See attached gpx.

Troubles & Questions / USA states outlines?
July 01, 2022, 22:12:50
Anybody know a map that can show the outlines of the states well...not hard to see lines.  I'm surprised google is so weak at this.  I did find a way to import tracks that draw the outlines...this worked well except it slows the entire phone down and therefore makes it unusable.  overlay somewhere?

I took a 7k drive recently and ran locus constantly except one day the phone ran out of power and went dead.  I charged it and restarted locus and figured I had lost @200-300 miles.  That night I looked at the track and there is no gap??????  How do you do this?
#12
there are some great maps here with URLs.
https://custom-map-source.appspot.com

I'm trying to get Hitta Frilufts working as a provider xml or wms???

Anybody know the correct syntax?  yes I have seen the Locus guide on making these but my head boils just trying to read that...I wish there was an easier way to get these working.

Attached is the map in Guru and Cartograph.  In my travels almost anything that runs in Cartograph can run in Locus.

I'm not sure if this is old but it doesn't work on latest version?

I can add edit and add links to points but not tracks.

Troubles & Questions / Lorouter & Brouter
April 01, 2022, 16:53:34
I typically use Brouter pick the squares download them.

With a reinstall I had to do the other day, I re-downloaded a Lomap and also chose the routing data.   Apparently Lorouter uses Brouter so am I downloading the same squares just in another folder.

I use locus while riding a motorcycle with gloves which makes operating the phone impossible without a stylus.  We ride on and off-road.  I recently learned about remotes from https://youtu.be/mNpsNsMi0Xc

I'm using this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07FNL1SRM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I can now zoom out and pan and recenter as I ride which is great.  I would like to be able to use a button on this remote to one click mark waypoint and begin audio record and then click the same button again to save with time/date stamp as name.  This way I have an audio description for when I get home and want to file it.

I was told Tasker could do this.  I know nothing about it.  Can anyone point me in the right direction or provide a working takser file that triggers something that I could use as a template???
