Tools / Re: [Function] Live Tracking Test Service
« on: June 20, 2013, 22:22:32 »
I tested Live tracking last weekend on a 60km mountain bike trip. The new function works great. I experimented a little with the settings and know it  is fine for me. My familiy has the possibility to watch me on tour an  and send a helicopter if the neddle doesn't move any more :D . I compared the ce-me track with the one recorded with Locus. When I had no data service due to a lack of my provider the points were lost. I had supposed the waypoints to be stored and sent later when the connection was available again. Not really a problem for me but  it is an unexpected behavior. >Uli

Prima. Das kann ich abwarten.

Ich habe bisher Vectorkarten von Mapsforge runter geladen und ins Vectormaps Verzeichnis von Locus geschoben. Die Karten konnte ich dann problemlos nutzen.

Heute habe ich Bayern und Italien runter geladen und sie im Verzeichnis platziert. Keine von beiden wird angezeigt. Eine "alte" Niedersachsenkarte funktioniert noch. Hat jemand ähnliche Erfahrungen?

I don´t know if it makes sense. OSM will change their licence at 1. of April  2012 and loose a lot of data.  The "red" will be lost.

Zoom in and you will see that most of the lost data are adress tags. The missing roads will be replaced in some month I think.

Not really in my eyes, because the apps have different goals. I don´t need an all in one app with hundred of functions, I can´t find.  :mrgreen:
I am an OSM mapper too but I prefer uploading the data to JOSM. It's to complex for a smartphone app to provide all features which would be necassary for OSM.

Wishlist / Re: offline use of topograhical maps like in apemaps

Hi radlerengel

I started with apemap and came via oruxmaps finally to locus and when I see your nick I suppose you use Kompass-Maps for biking. Me too. Therefore is no real alternative especially because of the contour lines in the alps for example. I own a lot of kompass maps and tried also to transfer them to locus. It hard but it is possible - joeloc gave you the right hint. The "*.net"-maps in my opinion are maps from the German "Landesvermessungsämtern" also known as TOP50. The data are the same and I don't think thats it is possible to use this source without paying for it. Apemap sells the Kompass-Maps which are based on the offical "*.net" maps. But this is only my opinion, I don't know exactly. I hope that the digital rights of the Kompass-maps or the Top50-maps are removed in the future because it's terrible: I own a map and cannot use it on  my preferred software. In addition TOP50 maps are cerated with or taxes and should be free.
