Wishlist / pinch to zoom where the fingers are (and rotate)
« on: January 09, 2012, 19:18:43 »
Locus either thinks that you're scrolling, or that you're zooming. It doesn't actually do precisely what you want.

When you zoom, you always zoom around the middle point of the screen. I would wish for it to zoom using the two points that I'm pinching, so that those two points are moved to where my fingers are moving. That would also allow rotation of the map in a similar way. It would be a lot more intuitive than first scrolling your object of interest to the middle of the screen, and then zooming.

Ie, move one finger on the screen - scroll.
Move two fingers on the screen, but do not change their distance or angle - scroll.
Pinch or unpinch fingers, but do not change their angle - zoom. But zoom should be around the points your fingers are, so if you unpinch a certain point on the map, the zooming should appear there as well.
Rotate two fingers - rotate the map. (Probably needs a threshold of 15 degrees or so.)

It could be fairly easy to just see where the points are on the map and how to transform the map so that it matches the new points?

Ah, the GPS off was a known bug. That's good, I thought it was my phone going bonkers.

The map dir feature works well here.

I've had some problems with track recording not taking. It's probably related to the GPS problem. I've been toggling track recording on off and pausing and unpausing to get them to work and confirm track recording is on... lets see if that's fixed too now. (So far no issue.)

it's also already there ... check menu > settings > misc > "Directory with maps"

I totally missed that. Thanks!

No luck for this?

Please, I really need this, and I can't be alone. Just an option to put in a path would work for me, where it can look for map data as well (think PATH). It doesn't need to be able to write there, but I'd really like to have the huge map data on the external sdcard...

Hey menion, Best map app!!  but... the new style for displaying tracks puts start and stop icons all over the maps. can I get rid of these somehow??

I got this problem as well... I started it with all tracks cleaned, but now it's getting annoying after just a few tracks.
I rather have some graphics than a big POI icon anyway, say a track looking like
   |---->
or
   |----o

or so (with very tiny |, > and/or o). (Same goes for navigation "tracks", really.)

This is a problem for me as well. My fast and big real SD-card is at /sdcard-ext/ and the slow internal fake SD-card is at /sdcard/. I have a Motorola ME860 Atrix 4g.

A thread about the problem for apps in general here.

I haven't looked into it but I assume there's some rather daft Android library issues in the way and not just "hardcoding /sdcard" as some seems to claim?

(If it is that simple, could it simply look at all the possible locations for a Locus directory? Then I could at least put the big maps on the real card, which would solve most problems.)
