Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.13.+ ( 12/2022 )
December 23, 2022, 10:22:31
I can remember from earlier times that it was possible to indicate the maximum size when creating a zip file.  If the zip file was larger, it was automatically divided into several files with a serial number.  Is this an option to send smaller zip files?

Strange.  It appears to me that since 4.13.1 the automatic backup works again;  even without a break.

The daily automatic backup has been paused for about 2 weeks.  See screenshot.  If I click on the green arrow, the backup will continue.  I have already reset the backup but the result remains the same.  (Is it possible to influence the time of the backup?)

Thank you for your response and it is nice to read that there may be a solution.  I will definitely know about my experiences later when the new version is available.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Error Backup to Dopbox
August 02, 2022, 10:13:28
Over the past week, I've been looking more into the possible causes of the problem that I can't back up via Dropbox on some devices.  I think I've found a possible cause.

My wife and I have had several dropbox accounts over time.  We both originally had a personal account.  I'll call them Account1 and Account2 here.  In the past I have managed to make backups on that personal Account1.

For several months now, we have created a new paid joint Dropbox account;  Account3.  All our files from Accounts1 and 2 have been merged here.  In this account I also made room to make Locus backups per device.  My wife and I each have our own account at Locus.

I have previously indicated that I was able to link to a Dropbox account on 1 device, but that I was surprised that no folder structure appeared.

What appears now.  This device is linked to the old Account1, which indeed contains nothing and there is therefore an empty folder structure.  At the moment I do see a folder 'backup' there;  the name that Locus itself gave with its backup.

In my opinion, the problem is that with reconnection, which I have done many times on the various devices, it is not possible to create a link to another (new) Dropbox account.  I also don't see any option in the settings to indicate what the applicable Dropbox accounts are.

I hope to have made clear what the problem is here and hope you guys can provide a solution.

In the meantime, the new version 4.11 appears to have been installed.  As a result, the function with the 3 dots on the 'Oops' screen has also been changed.  You will now be asked for a new folder or to log out.  Entering a new folder produces a screen with the text 'onbekend probleem' (= 'unknown problem').
When I log in to the Dropbox website, I can see which apps are linked.  Locus is just there.
I have been able to establish the link several times now, but the backup is not made.  It looks like the connection is being lost.  An error message appears.  See screenshot.

@arnor: "file path can no longer be used" may give a hint?
Do you have a paid Dropbox account? Free ones have a limit of 3 devices, I experienced.
Yes. I have a paid Dropbox-account.

To avoid misunderstandings, I checked with Dropbox.  I have a Plus subscription there.  The number of devices that can be 'connected' and synchronized is unlimited.

I don't know why a path wouldn't be available.  Within the Dropbox app, one specific account is used on all devices.  In addition, some folders from Dropbox (including the folder in which I want to place the backups) are also available offline on all devices.

hmm, the problem with Dropbox > app should refresh the required access token automatically, but when this does not happen, please try to logout and login again (top three-dot menu in toolbar), thanks

I've tried all sorts of things now.  Restart app, device, dropbox.  It didn't help.  What might be of interest is the following:

We use a total of 4 devices here.  Two of my own on 1 Locus account.  Two others belong to my wife on a different Locus account.  Locus 4.10 runs on all these devices.  Both my wife and I use the same types of devices, namely a Samsung A52 as a smartphone and a Samsung A6 as a tablet.

For the time being, I have organized separate backup folders for all devices within the same Dropbox account.

The same (already reported) problem occurs with my tablet and my smartphone.  My wife's tablet does get a follow-up screen where the intention is apparently to choose a folder, but a folder structure is not visible.  My wife's smartphone does show an error message, but something different from mine.  The message has been added here.

My device appears to have access to the Google Drive cloud.

I hope you can do something with this.

Troubles & Questions / Error Backup to Dopbox
July 19, 2022, 09:17:10
I'm using Locus 4.10     

I would like to back up settings and points to my Dropbox account.  I am running into an error here.  See attached screenshot.

I made sure that in the settings screen for backup cloud backup is checked.  After that, a selection screen for types of cloud backups appears and I click on Dropbox.  Then I click on the pencil to enter the reference to the correct Dropbox folder, but just then the error message appears.

What's wrong here.

I get an error by backup settings to Dropbox.
Is it possible to change the options for importing a map and importing a theme in 'importing A SET of maps and A SET of themes? In other words 'copy from a complete directory to a directory.

I have 4 devices where i have to place several  same OSM's. Several times in a year I renew these maps. ThereforeI I downloaded these maps in a directory in Google Drive. With X-plore I copied selected maps in one step to de maps-vector directory.

@arnor: since Dec 2021 Locus can handle ZIPed themes, i.e. just drop the ZIP file into the _themes folder. Done.

Just to be clear because I'm not quite at home in Locus yet. 

I have OpenAndroMaps installed.  Of course also the corresponding Theme (both V5) Now also the FzOAM theme.  Themes are zipped.  However, in Locus4, I don't see the FzOAM theme in the themechangescreen.  Do I need other maps (eg Freizeitkarte) for the FzOAM theme to use this theme.

Must the file be unzipped to Themes?
