i would like to launch a navigation app for car navigation from within locus, to navigate to a certain waypoint.
how can i add a navigation app to the navigation menu of locus?

so far, locus only displays tomtom navigation and google maps, while other navigation apps don't show up.
i would like to add e.g. navigation.

i don't think that launching this app is prevented from the app itself.
when i use gdak to select a destination waypoint, this allows me to launch any of my installed navigation apps to navigate to the waypoint, including

since updating to 3.22.0, locus does not show any geocaches, i.e. it looks like live update from the gsak database addon does not work anymore.
is there anything that has to be reconfigured in the settings or is this a bug in locus 3.22.0?

when running locus (with the gsak addon) on a multicore device, how many cpu cores is locus (with gsak adddon) able to use?

i wonder which device will be the better solution for running locus

- quadcore 32 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC v3 (4x Qualcomm Krait 400 at 2457 MHz (galaxy S5, G900F))

- octacore 64 bit Samsung Exynos 7 Octa 7580 (4x ARM Cortex-A57 MPcore + 4x ARM Cortex-A53 MPcore at 1600 MHz (galaxy S5neo,l G903F))

thanx your your help!

Troubles & Questions / access to html files with android 4.4
« on: November 04, 2014, 12:02:24 »
so far, i used the cyanogen android 4.4 version which does not have any restrictions in accessing sd cards.
now, with a new phone, i have plain android 4.4, i.e. my locus main folder is in internal flash, while maps and the gsak db are on the external sd card.
so far, things seem to work.
but i also have lots of html files and pictures, which so far have been located under locus/data/geocaching on the external sd card. these have been shown as "spoiler" tab when opening a geocaching waypoint. now these are not shown anymore.
what do i have to do to get them shown again (i need to keep them on the external sd card as internel flash is too small)

when importing waypoints from gsak (using the gsak addon), waypoints of type "benchmark" are shown as "traditional cache".
can you please correct this?

Solved / RMAP does not open in locus
« on: May 16, 2012, 16:16:03 »
hi menion
i converted all my maps to RMAP format.
unfortunately, some of these maps do not appear in locus, even if all these maps are in the same folder.
i sent you an example map on 14.5.2012 to your email and asked you to check this map.
have you got it?

when importing geocache waypoints from a GSAK database file, the geocache type 'benchmark' is shown as 'traditional cache'.

how can i get all geocaches shown with the appropriate icon?

is there a way to define custom icons based on geocache type and attributes?


Solved / error in RMAP calibration
« on: January 30, 2012, 11:03:01 »
looks like there is an error in calibrating RMAP formatted maps. :cry:

my map has the following projection/datum:
projection: Transversal Mercator
datum: Potsdam Rauenberg DHDN
resolution: 2.5 m/pixel

when placing a waypoint on this map, this does not show at the correct position.

coords of the wpt: 48°08.995 11°31.305
the wpt is shown on the map at about:  48°08.900 11°31.215

when using osm vector maps, the wpt is shown where it should be, but when using RMAP, the map seems to have an offset to the north-east and the wpt is shown in a wrong position.

i also checked this with another RMAP which has same projection/datum but different resolution, and the problem is the same.

first i thought that my maps are bad, but i did the following tests:

- loaded RMAP into compegps on the pc, and the wpt is shown in the right position
- loaded RMAP into oruxmaps, and the wpt is shown in the right position

so i think that definitely locus is the problem, which misinterpretes either the projection or the datum settings.

can you please have a look at this misbehaviour?


Implemented / Geocache Type: MyOwn
« on: January 19, 2012, 10:48:02 »
today's Locus is able to show individual icons for geocache types, and as soon as a cache has been marked as found, it gets the 'found' icon.
besides this, it would be nice to also have a special 'MyOwn' icon, indicating all caches of a specified owner.
this would allow to differ between caches on the todo-list and and owned caches.

Troubles & Questions / OSM 0.3.0 incompatibillity?
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:04:02 »
i've seen that there are new osm 0.3.0 maps (besides the older 0.2.4 maps).
i don't really know what's the difference, but i've seen that 0.3.0 maps are a lot smaller than the 0.2.4 ones.
so i tried to check this out, but it looks like locus is not able to handle these 0.3.0 maps, i.e. they do not show up within locus when copied to the vector maps folder.
are these maps not supported by locus?

Wishlist / Option to auto-enable POI category, imported to
« on: December 22, 2011, 11:18:30 »
It would be nice to have the option to auto-enable the category, to which waypoints have been imported last, i.e. when importing from gsak to favorites, there should be no need to manually reenable the favorites category, especially if this category has been enabled before importing.
with the actual version of locus, a category seems to always be disabled on importing new pois, at least when auto-deleting-on-load is enabled.

Wishlist / Show corrected coords instead of original coords
« on: December 22, 2011, 11:12:00 »
when importing geocaches from a GSAK database, icons are shown on their original location, even if there are corrected coordinates.
i think if there are corrected coords, the icon should be shown at the corrected coords and indicate that this are corrected coords with an indication on the icon.
that's because if you solve a mystery cache and update coords, there is no more use for the original coords and when looking for this cache, you have to go to the corrected coords!

Wishlist / Quick filter on shown geocaches
« on: December 22, 2011, 11:07:59 »
i would like to have a quick filter dialog on actually imported geocaches, allowing me to
- enable/disable my own caches on the display
- enable/disable found caches on the display
- enable/disable child waypoints for all actually shown caches on the display
- enable/disable name for all actually shown caches on the display
this should all be a 2-click operation, i.e. 1 click for opening the dialog and 1 click to toggle a setting.
i know that there are workarounds to do so, but they all require for a lot of clicks or for a reload of the geocaches.

Wishlist / Attribute indication on geocaches imported from GSAK DB
« on: December 22, 2011, 11:02:31 »
when importing geocaches from a gpx file, it seems that locus is able to indicate attributes like 'has corrected coords'.
when reading from a gsak db, this is not indicated.
i would like to get an indication on the icon shown, which indicates if a cache has
- corrected coords
- is my own
- ...

Troubles & Questions / waypoint database pre-generation
« on: December 14, 2011, 17:23:27 »
as far as i understand, importing a gpx file does nothing but converting the gpx file to an sqll database file for quicker access.
as importing a gpx file takes quite long as this is an interactive process, when having multiple gpx files to import, i wonder if there is a way to generate these sqll files on a windows pc (batch convert all gpx files of a folder into sqll files) and then transfer it to the data folder of locus.
unfortunately, i'm no sqll crack, so i was only able to modify some content within a locus generated sqll file, but i have no idea how to create one on a windows pc.
...but i think this shouldn't be a big thing to do...
