Ich hätte kein Problem 50 Euro für eine App zu zahlen, wenn ich dafür nicht ewig Fehlerreporte schreiben müsste und dann die Reparaturen mehrmals nachgefixt werden müssten.

Also wenn ich überlege, was ich an Zeit reingesteckt habe, damit Menion kapiert hat, was für Daten googlemaps mit Locus austauscht, damit der Austausch zwischen den beiden Apps sinnvoll funktioniert. Aber bei Victor von Osmand habe ich mich auch schon gewundert, was ich ihm alles testen sollte, damit eine Funktion läuft.

Ab und zu frage ich mich, ob man Appentwickler wird, weil einem nichts anderes übrigbleibt.

Ich habe beruflich viel mit Microsoft Produkten zu tun und wäre heilfroh, wenn dort auch nur annähernd so schnell auf Fehlerberichte (auch sehr ausführliche) reagiert werden würde wie bei Locus. Und ich wage zu behaupten, dass Microsoft etwas mehr Ressourcen zur Verfügung hat. Teilweise sind Bugs aber, trotz vielfachen Reports und teilweise sogar vorhandenen User-Workarounds, auch nach Jahren noch vorhanden - und leider nicht nur unbedeutende Bugs.
Ich würde sogar so weit gehen zu sagen, dass mir nur wenige Apps / Programme bekannt sind, bei denen derart schnell auf Fehlerberichte reagiert wird.
Dazu ist der Entwickler sogar noch offen dankbar über Feedback und Fehlerberichte und sehr aktiv im Forum.

Wenn ich dann noch bedenke, was Locus alles an neuen Features, Funktionen und Verbesserungen erhalten habe, seit ich es vor vielen Jahren gekauft habe bin ich durchaus bereit erneut dafür zu bezahlen.

Are we talking about vector maps or tile maps?
For Vector Maps you can increase the text size under Settings->Maps->Map objects->Text size and Icon size under Settings->Maps->Points and Tracks->Map icon size .
You can also increase the general map resolution (which to me only makes sense for tile maps) under Maps->Advanced features->increase map resolution. You can also put a Quick Settings button for this in your sidebar on the main screen to be able to toggle the map resolution with just 2 clicks. I use hat quite often, when I´m changing between vector maps and tile maps, as the tile map text and icons is too small on my phone. I think that has to do with the screen resolution of the phone you are using.

Free chat / Re: Huawei P20 Pro with Locus

Thanks Menion,
I´ve already read that thread, but was hoping that I could reproduce Patrick´s solution, who posted that it worked for him after the latest huawei patch. I do admit though, that it would be a bit of a worry to know that the next patch could break locus functionality again.
So the next hope is that you´ll find a way to fix the problem ;-)
But it would all be no good anyway, if the GPS on the P20 Pro had other issues. The only review I could find online (on notebookcheck.com) was not too positive about the GPS. But I don´t like to rely on just one source. So maybe someone here can pass on his/her experience with the P20 Pro...?

Free chat / Huawei P20 Pro with Locus
« on: June 13, 2018, 18:38:23 »
Hi,
I´m thinking about buying a Huawei P20 Pro, but one of my main criterias would be that the GPS runs smoothly. So if anyone here is already using a P20 Pro I´d be very grateful if you could answer a few questions:
1) How good is the GPS accuracy?
2) Does the P20 Pro support Galileo? I googled this one and found very contradictory statements.
3) Any known GPS / Locus issues with the P20 Pro?

It says on his website that he is taking some time off from the 23rd of April until the 24th June. Maybe that´s why you can´t reach him?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Change source in route planner
« on: May 03, 2018, 22:34:48 »
Thank you!
I knew it was possible, but it was so long ago that I couldn´t remember how i did it last time.
To me the the gear icon and the "settings" text was one and the same, so I agree with you - some form of separation would be useful.

Troubles & Questions / Change source in route planner
« on: May 03, 2018, 21:44:15 »
Hi,
is there any way to change the routing source (e.g. Brouter to Mapquest) from within the route planner or is it really necessary to go through the main menu? I was sure that this was possible at some point, but can´t find it anywhere in the route planner now.

Das meiste ist ja schon gesagt, aber du solltest natürlich auch beim Garmin dein Barometer vor der Tour kalibrieren. Sonst können sich auch dort Ungenauigkeiten einschleichen.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.29.+ ( 1. 2. 2018 )
« on: February 09, 2018, 00:47:16 »
Hi Menion,
It´s not a big problem to me, just wanted to report it in case other people have the same problem.
It does not terminate the app, it just says that it´s not responding and gives me the option to wait / close / report after about 30 seconds to a minute. I pressed wait a couple of times, but the app stays frozen.

Hi,
I have just tried out the new world map feature and in my case it makes my phone (galaxy S4, android 5) crash when zooming in. I´ve tried it with 2 world maps (my own google maps tile map and the world 1-9 Map) with the Germany south vector map from the locus store. As soon as I zoom in past the point where it should change from world map to vector map locus freezes and then crashes. This does not happen always, but most of the time.
Zooming out does not seem to cause any problems.

Menü öffnen -> mehr Funktionen -> Points of Interest (als Beta markiert)
Kannst du dir dann auch in die obere oder rechte Leiste legen.

Discussion/New features / Re: New Presets feature

@Menion
You are the best, I´ll just wait until it´s implemented. Even as it is, the new presets are already a big help. I think this new feature has great potential for everyone who uses Locus for more than one activity.

@ Holger
Wenn ich Menion richtig verstehe soll man die Inhalte von der Locus News Website bald deaktivieren können und nur Kartendownloads etc. werden angezeigt.
Wenn du die entsprechenden Funktionen gar nicht nutzt solltest du also auch keine Benachrichtigungen erhalten. So wie ich es sehe beschränken sich die "wichtigen Infos" bisher eh auf Kartendownloads.
Sprich wenn du keine Karten herunterlädst solltest du auch in Zukunft wieder deine Ruhe haben.

Discussion/New features / New Presets feature
« on: April 09, 2017, 21:41:38 »
Hi,
now that the weather is starting to get better, Locus gets used more again as well.
So I finally sat down and had a proper look at the new presets feature - and it´s just awesome!
One click and i´m in cycling mode - with my cycling dashboard, map rotation and lots of other settings that are useful when biking. Another click and I´m back in hiking mode. Thanks a lot for this feature!
I know it´s still in beta status, but I´d like to ask for two more presets:
1) Hardware compass on / off - I prefer the hardware (magnetic) compass when hiking, but with map rotation on whilst riding the bike the GPS compass works better.
2) Track recording profile - Logically i´d want my hiking profile when i´m hiking and my biking profile when i´m cycling.

I know I can easily change those settings with a couple of clicks - but hey, it´s the whole point of the presets that I don´t have to anymore, isn´t it?

Keep up the great work!

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Online Map Download
« on: January 19, 2017, 12:33:02 »
That´s kind of what I expected to hear  :(
But wouldn´t it be easily possible to allow multiple map downloads? You´d only need an extra screen where you can manage your current downloads. I´m just asking, as a high zoom level download can easily require a few days and in the meantime you can´t download any other maps...
I´d be willing to pay for a higher tile limit, but as far as I am aware you can´t increase the tile limit for google map downloads or can you?
I also think it would be useful to mark a map that hasn´t been downloaded completely as incomplete on the map screen or at least the map details screen.
