Troubles & Questions / QR Code of type GEO
May 09, 2014, 15:53:12

I have a QR code of type GEO with such a content: geo:51.45,7.0?q=Essen. I can scan this QR code with a Barcode Scanner and the scanner offers me to open a map. If I choose locus the app will start and the POI is shown.

Now I have two questions/problems:
1. unfortunately the string "Essen" is not imported by locus; would it be possible to import this string and to assign it to the name of the POI?
2. would it be possible to add the feature to scan QR codes of GEO type in locus?

Thank you

ich bin umgestiegen auf ein Note 3. Ich möchte, daß beim Überfahren des Fadenkreuzes mit dem POI-Icon der POI-Titel angezeigt wird, wie bei meinem alten Gerät. Ich habe schon alle Einstellungen verglichen, aber leider keine Lösung gefunden.
Kann mir jemand helfen?
Troubles & Questions / rotating device by 90°
August 13, 2011, 23:54:57
I am using Locus for a longer time and have now seen this effect for the first time: I am viewing the map at a position far away from my current position. If I now turn the device by 90° the center of the map jumps to my current position. Is this a bug or a feature?
Declined / using tiles in cache
August 10, 2011, 15:20:01
Last vacation I was in areas with limited internet access where downloading of tiles takes some time. When downloading tiles Locus is showing white tiles with message "downloading" or "unknown problem". If it takes too much time I switch to tiles in cache with an other zoom level. It would be fine when within the white tiles available zoom levels (only the numbers of course) would be displayed, especially available tiles with lower zoom level.
I have a problem when I import a kmz-file with multiple icons:
If the kmz file has icons referenced by external links the icons are shown correctly in the map. But if the kmz-file has icons which are provided within the file the icon of the category is shown on the map, not the icons provided in the file. Google earth works as expected.

Then I tried to delete a POI of the category and the app crashed. After starting Locus the category is not shown anymore. If I try to generate the category again Locus says "category already exists" (translated from german to english). But I cannot reproduce the crash again when I delete the POI.
Troubles & Questions / show name of POI in map

The name of the POI is not displayed anymore when the red cross in the middle of the map hits the POI. Where is the setting for this feature? Who can help me?
I want to import POIs of campsites. The kml file is provided by
Locus is reporting a problem and is not importing the POI. The reason is the element "description". I have attached a part of the file. I hope you can solve the problem so that I can use locus and the POIs in my vacation.
Thank you very much for the great app!
