Troubles & Questions / Show current speed during navigation?
« on: July 17, 2012, 10:08:45 »
Hi,

Is there an easy way to have the current speed displayed?  I've read about themes but they look like a lot of work for a simple feature so hoping there's some checkbox I've missed!

Thanks.

Peter.

As a non-native English speaker, I just want to make sure that I understand the term "sat nav".
I assume that you mean a device (mainly used in cars) that guides you from point A to B along roads. I.e. similar functions that Locus uses through its Navigation function.

Yes. Maybe it's just UK English slang.  Satellite Navigation. A "sat nav" is the thing you put in your car with a screen on it that tells you where to go!

Wishlist / Use as a sat nav
« on: May 02, 2012, 12:02:59 »
Hi,

I get the feeling that use as a sat nav is something that was added later.  But it's all I'm using it for!  I suspect I'm using just a small percentage of the functionality but sat nav's are very popular so perhaps something could be done to improve that feature.  Mainly - how about an option to configure all the settings to make a good sat nav? I had to change about 5-10 settings to get things working right and also had to download vector maps.

Perhaps there should be a button to just configure everything to that most people would want for sat nav use? Or maybe another version of Locus with all the other features removed and just ones relevant to sat nav - this might tempt the less technical user who just wants a sat nav app.

Cheers.

Peter.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Shop - where is it?

in application, tap on menu > functions > Locus shop. Right at start of list

Thanks for the quick reply. I've now bought 2GB of download.

It'd be great if going to the map manager and pressing "Vector" now told me I had some credit.  I'm getting the same message which made me think my purchase didn't work.  But -  I see now that when I press the + button near the top, I get a list of countries.  I will try it out when I get home on WiFi.

Previously when I was stuck on that screen, I pressed either the button to the right of the + or I pressed +.  I'm not sure which but it caused a forced close.  It doesn't do that now!

Cheers.

Peter.

Troubles & Questions / Locus Shop - where is it?
« on: April 17, 2012, 14:53:16 »
Hi,

Sorry for the stupid question but where is the locus shop?  I went to the "vector" maps page and it tells me I can buy vector maps from the locus shop.  About 5-10 mins of looking around the app and searching this site, I have not found it.  I must be stupid!  Please let me know - I don't even know if it's a website or somewhere in the menu system.

Thanks.

Peter.
