Einiges werden es schon mitbekommen haben: das Portal wird samt aller Daten nach USA verkauft. Ich habe meinen Account daher umgehend gelöscht.
Abgesehen davon, wird durch die " kostenpflichtige Premium-Funktion", nämlich der  Download der Tracks, die einfache Suche in Locus wahrscheinlich nicht mehr möglich sein.
Ich möchte gerne hier Alternativen diskutieren und dann menion bitten, nach Möglichkeit die API eines anderen Portals einzubauen.
Wichtig ist mir persönlich natürlich,
: daß die Daten in Europa bleiben
: der Community-Gedanke irgendwie enthalten ist
: das Portal auch benutzbar ist

Spontan ist mir da wieder eingefallen.
Wer hat noch andere Ideen? Vorschläge?


[DE] - deutschsprachiger Forumsbereich / DB ugedated?
« on: June 26, 2019, 22:42:30 »
Ich habe ein Update einer LoMap-Karte per Store gemacht und möchte herausfinden, ob die dazugehörige POI DB auch upgedated wurde. Wie kann ich das herausfinden?
Wo ist die DB im Store einzeln zu finden?


Troubles & Questions / map orientation when navigating
« on: January 29, 2019, 18:44:42 »
Hi all,
I switched to a new phone and took over all my settings from my previous phone w/out any problem.
But when I start the navigation the map is not orientated properly. See attachment.
The orientation should be north.  Map rotation, map center is on. Hardware Compass is used.
Which setting I have to change?


[DE] - deutschsprachiger Forumsbereich / neues Fon: Formfaktor
« on: October 25, 2018, 15:50:39 »
Servus beinander,
bei mir steht demnächst ein neues Händi an, weil mein Note1 langsam aufgibt. Hab mich mal schlau gemacht und entsetzt festgestellt, daß die Neuen alle einen merkwürdigen Formfaktor haben: 18,x:9. Man kann das jetzt positiv sehen, daß ein kleines Händi mehr Länge gewonnen hat. Gegenüber meinen Gewohnheiten hat aber die Breite um ~20% abgenommen :(
Frage in die Runde: Wie macht sich das in Locus bei der Kartenansicht bemerkbar? Ist das benutzbar?
Ich habe eine permanente 150% Vergrößerung der Karte eingestellt, um meine Lesebrille zu kompensieren, die ich immer zu Hause lasse. Auch mit der höheren Auflösung sehe ich trotzdem nicht mehr Karte. Und jetzt noch eine kleinere Breite... *grmbl
Kann mir bitte jemand vielleicht einen Screenshot von 150% Vergrößerung bei 120% Zoom machen, der so einen Formfaktor benutzt?

Extra Frage: sind die Probleme in Locus mit den Huawei Händis gelöst? Das Abschalten des Energiesparmodus scheint nicht das Allheilmittel zu sein... Hab's aber nicht bis zum Ende verfolgt.

Danke und Grüße,

Troubles & Questions / [Q] Palettes for coloring
« on: June 05, 2016, 10:10:49 »
Hi menion,
I'm happy with the new feature
and played around with the palettes. But unfortunately i can't get any intensive coloring like you (in the image of Praha).
In my case is always pale light brown or kind of grey :(

If i understand correctly the numbers in palettes like 0....126 or -1500....4000 are taken by Locus as height above sea levels? Or relative difference in altitude?
Looking for palettes for low mountains range (400-900m above sea level) and for the alps (800-4000m above sea level).

I tried palettes nrw*, alpen, GMT* and other palettes from the link you posted but without any better results.

Thank you for any hint,

Troubles & Questions / Waypoint time stamp
« on: May 27, 2016, 21:48:13 »
Hi menion,
i let Locus generate a track with nav commands from Brouter.
After export there are timestamps in the waypoints like this (in bold):

<wpt lat="48.130144" lon="11.449368">
<desc> <![CDATA[<font color="#ff000000"> <table width="100%"> <tr> <td> <table width="100%"> <tr> <td align="left" valign="center"> <small> <b>Höhe</b> </small> </td> <td align="center" valign="center">539 m</td> </tr>
<tr> <td align="left" valign="center"> <small> <b>Erstellt</b> </small> </td> <td align="center" valign="center">2016-05-19 23:24:38</td> </tr>
</table> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <table width="100%"> </table> </td> </tr> </table> </font>]]> </desc>

I guess time tags and values are from Locus ?!?

Other analyses softwares declares that the track took 10 minutes.
Can we get rid of the useless (and in this case wrong) time stamps in waypoints? Like in tracks some times ago?

Thank you,

Troubles & Questions / Popup: font size
« on: May 19, 2016, 22:09:46 »
Hi menion.
Playing around with new version and CAN'T read letters and numbers in track popup without glasses. There were some urgent reasons and user requests to decrease font size?
Up to now i don't need glasses on tour and i don't want to carry it with me.


Can i have the old font size back? Please.

Troubles & Questions / Locus hangs on start
« on: May 19, 2016, 19:24:57 »

How to solve this?

Troubles & Questions / Locus as a service
« on: May 12, 2016, 20:24:49 »
Locus is installed internally, most maps are on SD card. Locus is set to "as a service"
Yesterday during a bike ride my SD card lost contact to phone. After fiddling and reboot i got red toasts with message "Problem mit Verzeichnis "backup/" means "problem with directory backup/". Another message regarding dir "export/".

SD card (and pathes) are broken hence the messages are right.
So i guess that Locus service is running night and day even if Locus is NOT used.
@menion, can you please confirm this?
If so i would like to ASK to change this behavior to let run the service only if a part of Locus is active. I got problems with battery drain...

Another question:
After losing all my maps on SD card i got white background with a colored track. Not funny.
Why did not Locus switch to the map left in internal memory?
Pathes to several map directory was set correctly.

Troubles & Questions / [Q] Percentages of surface conditions
« on: December 03, 2015, 19:36:17 »
I would like to know the percentages of surface conditions of an existing track, i.e.
x% gravel
x% path
x% tarmac

Questions are,
: where are the information stored. In vector maps?
: and should this be computed after or during creation of a track?

Before writing a feature request in help desk i would like to have some further information...


Troubles & Questions / [Q] icons when using "add new route..."
« on: October 17, 2015, 22:36:58 »
When using "add new route..." there are latterly new blue icons with white arrow down (Zwischenziele) after saving the new track. How can i avoid these icons?
No hint in docs :(

Troubles & Questions / [Q] 'creating time' of recorded track
« on: May 19, 2015, 19:54:21 »
Hi menion,
Yesterday I recorded a track with Locus Pro 3.4.2, non Beta. In Android the time zone is set to +2.
Time stamp of the first track point was 08:08:35. I started running at 10:08.
In track detail page creation time is displayed as 10:08.
So I guess the date written into the track is without concerning of time zone now???
With version of December 2014 the right time was written in the recorded track...


Troubles & Questions / Android apps on Windows 10
« on: April 30, 2015, 22:53:54 »

Should i give Windows another shot for my favorite Android app?
Is Locus going to be adapted for this???
No more virtualization, no more chrome.

Lot of possibilities. Life is hard.

Tools / [Q / OT] Editing speed in rec. track
« on: April 14, 2015, 18:28:25 »
Hi all,
totally OT but interesting for me.
I did a run today and had a lot of breaks due to fingering into setting in Locus beta and fallen trees which i have to climb. So time and speed are not regular. (normally no worries)
Do anyone know how to edit / filter the track to get a realistic time w/o the breaks? I use german GPS-Track-Analys.NET and can filter all points "as errors" with speed less than a value i created. But then i can only delete this selection of points.
Imho if there is a time stamp causing a speed close to zero this value should be changed to the value of the next point with a time stamp causing speed bigger then zero.
Am I wrong? Any hints for processing or tools?


Troubles & Questions / [Q] double-digit numbers in distance possible?
« on: February 25, 2015, 20:10:11 »
Hi guys,
when i create a route by 'add / measure route' there is a number in the left upper corner displaying the distance of the created track like 8,3 (km). In track screen in statistics also. Is there any possibility to blow this up to double-digits after point like 8,36 ???
