  check this config file ... ation_file , last parameter right now added. Hope you'll like it ;)

Also I have tried the suggested tip but each time I start the application (version 2.4.2) it gets deleted.Something I'm missing ?
The time rings are always showing the time in minutes while I want to force it into (ex. 10:20h).

Very good! Just to understand if the feature was hidden somewhere! Btw compliments for the wonderful product!

not exactly. When I move the cross over the screen actually there are 2 infos: 1) Bearing 2) Distance (as you can see from my screenshot). Is it possible to add also the dynamic ETA ? So that when I move the cross all over the screen it automatically recalculate the ETA for that point?

Thanks for your answer, maybe I didn't explain clear. I mean near the cross symbol. Is this configurable too ? In this case I can provide an exact estimate on the scrolled point.

Thank you!

Is there anybody who knows if other then the time/distance rings is possible to add to this view also the estimated time of arrival to a scrolled point ? Maybe is somewhere in the settings, but couldn't find this. This is very useful for aviators where the control tower asks for an estimated to a point.

This can be either time in minutes to reach the point or time refered to actual clock time (this is better).
For example: 10 minutes would be 10:20 ---> 10:30[/color]

Thanks to anybody!

Please feel free to ask me whatever about aviation if I can help. Actually could be interesting to have also the ETA to the cursor position since pilots should report frequently to the control towers on ground their positions related to near point (interesting to have time related to actual time or estimated time / minutes if you want to make this customizable). Then I think that all the rest can be useful for a pilot can be simply done with customizable layouts.


As you can see I have filled in some airspaces the area to green by simply using "SB 0,200,0" as a tag and Locus rocks!  Text and descriptions sometimes overlaps if they are near, but it's not a big problem.

I'm actually using vector OSM maps but I should find something better since this doesn't have any elevation, I know I can also geo-reference maps but I prefer something ready - I will find something. I know that a DEM overlay would be too heavy for the system.

About the translation -> Going to complete them!

In the next few days I will also contribute a new layout for aviators :)

I was able to load openair Italian airspaces in Locus. Wonderful!
Also as you pointed, I put HTML comments so now I have full informations inside any waypoint.
Now I'm preparing a customized layout for both tablet and my GN so that I will use on the aircraft.

Just one more question: when I move the cross over any point on the map is there any chance to have heading and ETA calculated on the last GPS positions ?

Thanks and again compliments for the high quality product!

P.s.: I found some missing translations in Italian, maybe I can help contributing ?

Thanks for your answer! I actually don't know anything about OpenAir. Going to google it!
Anyway I don't do any pre-processing, maybe I should try processing them a place the HTML table as you explain. Pilots don't need any other information to be shown on the map, but it's important that when I click on a point I can get more infos about them (frequencies, services) and maybe if you want pilots happier you can show the orientation of the runway (but I think it's going to be tricky), since this informations are all inside the GPX from

I also have all airspaces (they are very important to be shown as overlays in Locus), DEM elevation, VFR reporting points for Italy available and I really would like to contribute with my help to the community by uploading them to the OpenAviationMap project so that aviators can use them in Locus.

Thank you!

I have bought Locus Pro and I should say it's a wonderful product!
I'm an Android developer too and I would like to use Locus for aviation purposes.

I've tried to import a GPX file which contains "extensions" in the schema downloaded off the widely used ""
Unfortunately they provide the ICAO ID of the airport as name so it's quite difficult to find an airport by remembering this code, the full name is indicated in the <cmt> field.

Is there any way to switch some information ? Also will be useful to import the extended data (frequencies - runway orientation and so on..), this is a piece of xml:

Code: [Select]
<wpt lat="46.031889" lon="12.596472">
<navaid:name>PAGLIANO E GORI</navaid:name>
<navaid:frequency type="APP" frequency="120.125M" name="APP"/>
<navaid:frequency type="CLD" frequency="122.100M" name="CLNC DEL"/>
<navaid:frequency type="GND" frequency="122.100M" name="GND"/>
<navaid:frequency type="ATIS" frequency="129.300M" name="ATIS"/>
<navaid:runway designation="05/23" length="8551" width="144" surface="ASP">
<navaid:beginning lat="46.023333" lon="12.583889">
<navaid:ending lat="46.038889" lon="12.608889">

Thanks anyone for any help!
