this is probably not a locus question, but I´ll ask anyways.

whenever I use Locus for a longer time, some message pops up: "the app locus pro has been inactive for more then 45mins. would you like to terminate it?".
So I tried to change all the android power consumption options, but still the message pops up.

Does anyone know how I can get rid of this message?

System is Android 2.3.6 unrooted.

hi, me again,

concerning offline opencyclemaps, and bad planning.

I assume:
When I download additional Map Data and merge it with an existing offline map, that data will only be downloaded when its not already in the old map file. No double downloads.

What I want:
A map zoom lvl 15 (I don´t even know if lvl 15 is reasonable or too much for cycling) along a 700km track.
-I have the track
-I have one big cluttered map in several zoom lvls, with holes along the way for zoom lvl 15.
-9000 tiles left in the shop.

So, what is the best course of action to fill the holes in my map?
-Downloading along the track, combining with the existing map, was my first thought.
But then the app calculates the "tiles to download" (In my case 100 000 tiles) before it combines the data with the existing map. So there is no way for me to see how big the real download will be after that merge of old and new map data. So it´s a shot in the dark, and I don´t want to waste credits on double downloads.

-Another option I can think of. moving along the track in lvl 15, find mapholes, download/merge the data piece by piece. That would be the tedious way of the Samurai I guess.

-third option. Buy lots more credits, and this time download in a more methodical manner.

Any tips are appreciated ;)

hi Menion,

after a nights rest all is good now, but I´ll try to explain where the problem started anyway.

On the download Tab if I try to click any option there, the "pls buy credits" window appeared.

oh, thx for the "help for dummies"

next problem.

app says "purchase more credits in the shop" although I have 15k tiles left.

So, I downloaded some cyclemap tiles, and some more, and more, squezed them all into one big file, now I want to download some more, but the app thinks I have no credit left (in that download dialog) whereas the shop displays my real TileCredit.

what to do?

I hope it´s not again one of those rtfm questions.

I have troubles with the shop, today I purchased 3000 tiles opencyclemap.

I had to input some credentials with google play.

but purchase on Googles end worked ok, it seems, I got the confirmation mail

In your shop, I see under Maps/opencyclemap my purchased tiles but no place to spend them or download, or opencycleMap names.

also when I press the Buy me Icon on the right, it says "Dialog_billing_not_supported_ID"

Maybe I only seem to miss some navigational thingies to get me to see the actual maps.
