And the go to map center of vector maps? Should be easy enough, right? :-)

Hi Menion,

I got a new baby girl, Lea, recently so I haven't been so active with either Locus or the forum. But I download each and every update and is always excited to see what new fantastic features you have added. And if I compare to when I discoved Locus in the beginning of the year is is really amazing what you have accomplished in a few months. I don't even dare to guess what it is like next spring :)

One of the major improvements recently is vector maps, they work very well although a little bit slower, but it is great to have a whole country offline in all zoom levels. And I also immediately bought the vector downloader addon even though you offer it for free for contributors, but the price is very fair indeed and I want to support you! And most of all, it is very useful to be able to download vector maps away from my computer :-)

I have one wish for the vector maps: A go to map center function just like for normal offline maps. If for example I have downloaded Turkey I have to use the search function to go there. It would be much easier just to go to map center.

This thread is really about translations and I have a suggestion. I have contributed to the Danish translations but many of them are still not good because you see it out of context when you translate it. But when I am out offroad and use it for real, the translations pop up and sore my eye! But in that situation I cannot do anything about it.

Would it be possible to implement a translation mode something like this:

When you see a translation that needs attention you somehow long-press and mark it as a to-do item. That could be a text on the main screen on in the settings. Later on at home you can get a list of the items you marked and translate them properly using crowdin.

I would say that most of the texts and thus the bad translations are in the settings, so that is the most important area in my opion.

Do you think something like that would be possible?

I have sorted out the remaining issues and also made a few corrections. When I get the updated program and see the strings in the right context, I will see if we still need corrections.

Thanks --- although I am not so young anymore, neither in age (44) or in software developement: 20+ year :-)

But I am new with Android, so I can surely learn from you  :mrgreen:

I have a few questions regarding stuff you do in Locus:

1. How do you format the Basic Info and News page with different fonts and styles? Is it html-formatted?
2. How do you make the prefences display the current settings?
3. How do you make the toolsbars? What kind of widget is it?

I have not had problems recently. But perhaps you should consider if licensing validation is really worth the trouble?

Is piracy a big problem on Android?
In PHP you simply put this statement in the beginning of the main file:

header("Disable-Tile-Limitations: True");

It must come before any output (echo, print etc) is sent to the server or it will fail.

The syntax is similar in other languages.

Or, as Menion says, you can do it directly in Apache.
Quote from: "menion"seboo, I'm trying to find any simple solution but I have no idea .. what about you?

You could disable download limitations based on a server response. If a person hosts his own tile server, he should be able to send a customized http response header. Something like: Disable-Tile-Limitations: True.

FYI, I had the same issue with 1.8.2 a couple of days ago. I have not yet tried the newest version.

It has been something of a learning curve since I have never programmed in Java, but I getting the grasp of it :-)

You are right that it is good to work on something specific, that also helps the motivation.

Hi Menion,

I am just started with Android programming. I would like to ask you a few questions on how you got started with Locus :-)

- Do you use the classic Eclipse/ADT setup?
- Which resources (web sites, books) did you use to get started?
- Have you tried some alternative tools such as Phonegap and Titanium?

No problem. It is by no means critical.
