Troubles & Questions / Re: Map cache "valid for"
« on: September 16, 2019, 10:28:12 »
Have you checked Settings > Maps > Online Maps > Cache Maps is set on?
On my installation, Maps (Online Maps) > ... > Details gives details of whether the map can be cached and the size of the map in the cache.
Maps (Online Maps) > ... > Set 'valid for' is blank by default but can be changed to cause regular updating where required.

An update to my last post, too.
Starting the latest beta with OAM MF4 Great Britain and Voluntary MF theme gave me a pure white map. After cycling through themes it displayed correctly.

An hour into a walk, Locus beta screen went blank (white) with OAM Great Britain MF4 map, while Lomap England displayed OK. Restarting the phone did not help but cycling through different themes solved it later. Not reproduceable of course

I strongly suspect that option #1 (cruiser.gr) is a totally different application and works differently.

Just to note, my Voluntary theme for Locus makes use of the MF5 scaling in Locus. A generic MF4 version of the theme which works with other apps is also available in this forum or via OAM.
Also to note, any MF4 themes from elsewhere ought to work on MF4+ maps in Locus.

Just want to say that applying presets to routing preferences, and resetting afterwards, is a stroke of genius. It's suddenly made presets really useful. Well done.

Locus doesn't support line curve="cubic" in MF4. Locus MF4 themes ought to be fully supported in other MF4 apps as far as I know, with one proviso. Locus supports MF5 scaling of dotted or dashed lines. Any themes that make use of that will not work on MF4 apps.

The map preview of track style shows an incorrect width if "m" is chosen instead of "px", at least with a pattern style. The preview width is vastly too big and misleading.
Edit: after saving the track style it no longer is incorrect.

@menion
Navigation instructions (and TTS) in Czech again.

The truncated text issue is not *completely* solved. There's a village called Shillingford St George near Exeter that beats the system sometimes. But I can live with that.

And neither have I found any broken text with the new beta. Well done.
More details regarding the spoken Czech bug: I had App Language set to Default system, and that gave me all the dialogues in English, fine. I started navigating and Locus gave me directions in spoken Czech. When I minimised Locus, the text directions in the notifications were also in Czech. (OK, maybe it wasn't Czech but it looked like it, with your special characters.) When I checked the TTS setting, the TTS language was Czech (Czechia). That comes top of the list, which may be why it is preferred. My setting in Locus Pro is simply English and the app picks up my choice in Android settings of English (United Kingdom). In the beta it doesn't do that. I've been forced to choose English (United States), the only available English variant.
Neither, by the way, does Locus beta seem to pick up the Android system settings for speech rate (and possibly other settings). Locus now speaks directions very rapidly in an American accent.
There is one factor which may possibly be relevant: I'm away from home and working on mobile data not WiFi and Android is set to only download TTS data on WiFi.

The beta spoke to me in Czech (again)!
The reason appears to be that  the English option has disappeared in Locus both for system language and TTS, and been replaced by English US.
Google TTS knows I want UK English but Locus doesn't even offer the option.

@john_percy
"share" from which app? Just tried quite test from Google Maps and seems to work ok for me.

The app was Wild Guide to SW England...
But the behaviour was clearly different for beta and Pro, and clearly reproduceable.

Edit: When I try to share a location from Google maps to Locus beta, Locus crashes.
