Troubles & Questions / Audio feedback ?
« on: June 22, 2014, 17:44:22 »

one of the only reasons why I still have Runkeeper installed and don't use Locus for everything is because Runkeeper can be set to periodically say things like speed, total distance, etc. Is there a way to get Locus to do that ? Runkeeper kinda sucks compared to locus so I'd rather use Locus for jogging too.


I am a happy Locus Pro owner, and I have recently been given a slightly broken device that has no internet access (but I can put stuff on it by putting in an SD card). Free apps I can just download the apk of and move it to the device, but obviously not paid apps. Since this device would be perfect for vacations (big display, good GPS, not a huge loss if broken/stolen since it's so damaged) I would like to put my Locus Pro on it somehow if that is possible.

Is there a way ? Like I said I legit own Locus Pro.

Hey good Locus people,

I saw this come up in an unrelated discussion:

Looks perfect to be used with Locus Pro's Live Tracking function. Since it's open source it's probably trivial to add too.

Just thought you guys might find it interesting, not asking for anyone to do anything with it.

Have fun!

Troubles & Questions / "You veered off the course" warning ?
« on: February 09, 2014, 12:22:05 »

sometimes I import a course from Google Earth or similar and then follow it, like when I hike. Every now and then, I veer off the course while not looking, and then when I next check Locus like 20 minutes later and see I got lost, I have to go all the way back. Is there a way to make Locus ring a warning or whatever if you are more than x feet from a path or something like that ? Or what is the best way to follow a predetermined path without constantly looking at the map ?

Maps / Locus Maps in Google Earth ?

this might be a weird question, but I figured if anyone knew, it would be you awesome guys. I've been a long time happy Locus Pro user, and couldn't be more happy with this fantastic app. I have one issue though: as amazing as Locus is, it's restricted to running on my phone, which compared to my desktop PC is really tiny. When I plan a hike or a tour, I would prefer to plan it on Google Earth, and export it to Locus when I'm done, simply because the huge screen and the mouse make for a nicer planning experience. This itself already works fine - I export my track or route as .kml (or .kmz ? I forget), and import it in Locus.

My question is this: in Locus, I have access to fantastic maps with topographic height reliefs, even more so with the map addon. But with Google Earth, I only have the comparatively crappy Google maps. I know there is a feature to use other maps as overlays in Google Earth somehow, but I don't quite know how, or how I would find out where the Locus maps come from exactly. Any of you know if there is like a text file with links or something in Locus where I could easily copy map providers out of to use with Google Earth to plan my trips ?

For what it's worth, I'm in Europe, and the only help I could find on Google was for map data from the USGS, covering only the Americas.

Hope it's OK I asked this here.

Where did it go ? I still have it on my tablet, but when I just bought Pro and installed it on my new phone, no Google maps was to be found.
