Information / Update of the forum (2022/08)
August 19, 2022, 14:51:04
Hi guys,

it has been almost 12 years since I created this forum and posted my first post here. Heh, a long time.

Unfortunately, for a few years, the forum was stuck on the older version without an option to update (because we still used a really old server). And now, we get info that the server is shutting down.

So what should be updated (todo list)
  • missing "Last post button"
  • make a "Recent post" slim
  • enable Tapatalk system

EDIT: just to make it clear (based on comments of my colleagues): this was the only old server we used ;).

So > new server, a new version of this forum, new problems, and many plugins + theme that does not work!

Important is to keep in touch and update the app itself, anyway I'm creating this topic to
  • inform about these changes
  • discuss what features are missing here (on this forum) most and try to do something with it

Thanks for understanding and let me know if there will be any requirement or any problems I did not notice.

Hi guys,

because this is a feature we were working on for some time and it will be very actively developed next months, I've rather created a separate topic to keep the discussion in the one place.

What is it about?
We were able to attach around 300k photos from Wikipedia to our online LoPoints. Not much for world coverage. So to improve the quality of LoPoints, we decided to create an option to upload user photos for online LoPoints.

Where to test it
- latest Locus Map Beta version 4.10.0.3+
- or public Locus Map 4.11+ (in preparation)

Implemented features
- upload a new photo taken by the camera
- upload already created photo
- report invalid photo

Features in developing or planned
- user profile page with a visible amount of uploaded photos
- gallery of own uploaded photos
- rating by "hearts / thumbs up" (or any other symbol)
- maybe some kind of "photographer of the month" or similar

FAQ
- based on your questions

---

Feel free to ask anything you care about so I may improve "FAQ" section.

Other features / Android 11+, changes
November 26, 2021, 12:13:57
Hi guys,

there were not too many changes in the Android itself during last years, that affect Locus Map. The big one was of course battery optimizations  :o.

And now, tadá, we have another one as most of you know.

A11+ devices bring a limitation in access to the device file system. Task, which firstly was not looking so complicated, in the end, took more than a month of work for me and half of the Locus team.

I started this topic so I may answer and discuss any changes that the next update brings independently on the main app version topic(s).

----

Summary
- app can no longer access the root of the internal memory directly, only over very limited so-called "Scoped storage" access. This brings some limitations. Mainly fact that the neesd to move its main directory to the private storage (/android/data/...). Also no support for the custom "srtm" and "mapsVector" directory, no support for custom "geo tagged photos" directory, and no support for "external maps" defined over the app.

- app can't directly detect installed apps, so the content of the function panel may be limited

---

Michal is already writing a bigger blog post & manual for a better understanding of these changes and how to solve the most common use-cases.
You may watch the creation process of the main manual page in progress here.

Feel free to ask here, I'll gladly answer.

I'll also today finally publish the new Beta version where all these changes will be presented.

The final phase in creating Locus Map, version 4.

Today/tomorrow will be published a final version of LM4 into the public Beta channel on Google Play of Locus Map (Free) app. All systems are now up and ready.

Because I've not yet decided how Beta versions will be published, for now, this will be a regular public version that requires an active subscription. So no features will be unlocked like it was till now.

Final status
Locus Map Free > will be renamed to Locus Map (version 4+)
Locus Map Pro > name remains for now as is (for a month or two) till we will be 100% sure, LM4 is stable and perfectly working. Then it will be rename to Locus Classic. Version continue in 3.5+ row.

Final prices and comparison of functionality if you are interested: here. Silver tier is close to the current Locus Map Pro, but gives few bonuses, so something like the "Pro+" version.

Pro users
Locus Map 4 = Locus Map Free - so it remains like before, you may have both apps installed at once (Locus Map, Locus Classic). If data are stored in the root of the internal memory, data will be shared without any worry (for now, in September 2021 things starts to be more complicated, thanks to Google)

Pro users anyway receive one year of the Silver for free or Gold with a 50% discount, which both compensate the price of the Pro version.

FAQ

How to use Beta versions
- how to. The text is old but the bottom part with "What to do to become a tester" is perfectly valid.
- latest version wins, so a new regular update will update your Beta version and opposite
- settings, data, subscription, all remain untouched no matter which version you use!

Discount on the purchase as Pro user
- essential is, to use the Pro version logged into Locus Store with the same account you will use in the LM4
- steps: open in Locus Map Pro > menu > Locus Store. Check in the side panel account
- start Locus Map 4 > menu > Locus Store and check, the account is the same
- if you do not see the "Exclusive" offer, immediately send me PM with your email, I'll check it
