Developers / wpt.setName(String) not working
« on: January 10, 2016, 08:57:18 »
Hi ;)

Just playing around with the API, I noticed that adding something like
Code: [Select]
wpt.setName("My POI is now called something else");
to that line doesn't update the name of POIs in Locus DB.
Temporary Points like the random ones that come with the sample do get the update.

In addition updating the description like it is done in the sample seems to only update the description, if there has been a description before. It doesn't create a new one.
Location works nice.

Well, just playing. Nothing serious.
Although I'm curious, if it's an error or misunderstanding on my side.

Cheers  :)

Hi everybody,

I know that Dropbox is quite popular in the Locus community. It seems that some skilled guys got access to Dropboxes and published the login datas:

So this is just a friendly reminder to change your passwords. ;)
Eventually set up two-step verification:
This is also available for your Google Account:

Hi everybody,
Google forces Android developers to publish their physical address, if they provide any paid apps or apps with in-app-purchase. The address will then be shown on any of their apps on Play Store, even if the app is free.

Hi Bikers,

What do you think about that product?

I'm interested, especially for that price, but before supporting them, I'd like to get some opinions.
Also @Menion, will this work with Locus?

Cheers, berkley

Tools / [DE] [Map tool] [WMS watcher] [more]
« on: March 14, 2014, 07:23:54 »
Hi everybody,

By accident, I've found that very nice map tool called Unfortunatly only available for Germany. It offers very detailed basic maps including house numbers.
Have a look right here:,5292886.371891,1372930.866317,6007113.628109&background=hintergrundkarte

You can choose from different open source WMS services to add to the map and export it to a kml file.

Have fun with it.  8)


Discussion/New features / Warning messeage while driving
« on: March 01, 2014, 16:06:58 »
Hi everybody,

Locus is a mapping application. A mapping application is most useful when you travel. At least in most European countries, it is not allowed to use your phone while you drive. So the discussion is:

Shouldn't there be a warning to not use Locus when you drive?

Thanks for your opinions!
