Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.10.+ ( 06/2022 )

Hmm removed time&date in the popup is some kind of unwanted side-effect. This feature should be an optional settings in the Settings > Points & tracks > Track label > . This option is anyway missing in the LM4 and seems you did some "reset" of settings so this option was changed to the default "false". Will be fixed in the next app version.
Thx. Talking about "reset of settings": I mentioned this before, but I can confirm now that it happens with every install of a new beta version: Navigation>Select Voice is reset to "Text-to-speech". I always set it to "No voice", and everytime after a new install and I start a navigation, I suddenly hear a voice again, because TTS got reset to default. Not a biggie, just weird nobody else seems to have it (perhaps everyone here uses TTS?)...

I just noticed a change in the Track Editor (aka "Fine-Tuner"): When clicking on a point, the date/time is not shown anymore in the pop-up. Could you please bring that back, at least the time? I really think it's a big step back, I need the time all the time (no pun intended), e.g. to find out where the rest was in a track. Now I need several clicks for the details for every point! The time only takes 5 characters, so I don't really see any reason to get rid of it...

These no go areas are very important to force the route algorithm not to route through Italien villages. Very dangerous in the Alps.
Off topic, but why are Italian Alpine villages dangerous?

Sometimes extremly steep, very narrow in poor condition.
ROTFL, I was actually thinking you were avoiding the villages because of, I don't know, mafia etc. ;)
Can't really imagine that the villages are worse than the actual trails, but then again, I'm mostly hiking in Switzerland...

Menion, you can now disregard my previous comment about Map Shading - now in newest beta I can confirm that also the Hill Shading is better in ZL13+, not just the Slope Shading. Thx!

Also, the coloring of Dashboard icons works. In fact, you - on purpose? - made a workaround possible to choose any color for the icons: As they're colored with the current text color, it's possible to choose the desired icon color as text color (e.g. white), then select/reload icon, then choose the (differing) text color (e.g. yellow) - voilà.

@Repair: I, like Andrew, also thought at first something was wrong. I really think, "Repair" has the wrong connotations. And "Modify" was perfectly fine...
Anyway, I experienced increased crashes in Editor Repairer. Can't give you any details yet, but I had several crashes in short order when doing some deleting points or editing points and then moving around in the track with the < and > buttons. Just as a heads up - I will give more info if I can manage to reproduce it, but perhaps you changed something and can already check it...

This will not change route length (still 84.4km) but
calculated time dropped to 1:47h. This should not happen bcs route doesn't changed.
Well, technically the time should be at least a few seconds longer, because a waypoint is supposedly a stopping point, so you have to break and afterwards speed up again.
Ok, joke aside, at least I can understand why the result of the underlying algorithm would not be exactly the same. Of course it makes no sense that it's shorter.
(and yeah, I'm working in the train business, where stop-or-no-stop is quite a factor...)

@slarti76
an old problem with the color of icons I've never solved.
I've at least added a quick fix > next time you pick an "Internal icon", it will be colored to match the style of the text.
Thx, sounds to me like a perfectly sufficient solution. In the end, that's what I wanted - custom color is not really necessary. Looking forward to it :)

Hello Slarti
You can use your own icons, i.e. as png-pictures.
Joska
But I want to use the built-in icons, they're fine. I don't have the time to screenshot those and change their color with a paint program. Or search for fitting icons. It's not that I don't like the icons, it's just the color...

Quick question about dashboards:
The internal icons are all black, which is not very useful with a darkish gray background for the tiles as I have. No the icons are obviously monochrome, so it should be possible to change color?! Can that be implemented? Or did I overlook something?

Oki and this is also the case for Locus Map?
No, Locus itself handles that well. It's just the matter of what app you're trying to show Locus together with - I mean, if Split Screen were a perfect solution all the time, we wouldn't need PIP at all ;)

Hill shading: well I see quite a big difference in the shading of your screenshots. I'm comparing 224356 and 224409 images.
That's what I meant: L12 with 200% Zoom still looks better than L13 with 100% Zoom (well, in the screenshot it's 600% vs. 300%, but the principle applies). And for Slope Shading, it's really better after your change, so I really wonder what's going wrong here...

And another thing: You never reacted to this post of mine:
https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7885.msg67574#msg67574

I checked it again with release, same result: Slope Shading looks much better, Hill Shading no real improvement.

@slarti76
ah, sorry for calling you "tapio". Too many names on my head :).

Your screenshot: yes, it may be pointless. Then do not use it :). If you need a little bigger, but not the full-screen > use split-screen on your device!
That's not comparable, because many apps get screwed up by the then unusual aspect ratio.
Is a little expert setting with 3 choices really too much? Sorry for bothering, but I find it a wasted opportunity. Of course, the fault lies with Google and/or Samsung, but I assume you call some system function with a specific aspect ratio, so it shouldn't be such a biggie?!

@tapio
I think you meant me ;)

PiP display: it is possible that panel ratio affects resize options. Anyway, this panel was made mainly for navigation. For this case it is optimized and because of this, it is a little higher. I do not see a sense to increase its size close to the full-screen.
No, I agreed, fullscreen makes no sense. But look at my screenshot: Imagine this in >50cm distance while biking, that is basically pointless! Perhaps this is something Samsung-y and not like that on your phone. But for me, it's now useless, whereas in the initial beta I could at least get it to ca. double the width, which makes it usable.
Please add an option to choose ratio (e.g. 3:2, 1:1, 2:3 is enough)!

Automatic zoom & rotation works for me as well as no glitches as balloni55 wrote above. Sorry, there is not much I may do for now.
Ok, will check automatic zoom again, didn't get around to check it with release version. Rotation works, I can confirm.

Menion, you still looking at this? I checked again with release 4.9.0, but behaviour was the same, apart from map rotation now working.

Guilty pleasure... ;)

Thanks for the tests! You were really able to resize and move this PiP window fully freely? Weird, it should not be possible.
Well, as I said, ratio was fixed, but I could make it much bigger. Is that really not supposed to be possible? I mean, e.g. if I use VLC as pop-up, I can resize it to like 90% of the screen width (but also the ratio is fixed).
Ah, I just realized something: A video is, of course, in landscape - so resizing to full width is possible. Locus was initially 1:1, which obviously also allowed it. Once you changed the ratio to 3:2, it's not possible anymore, because then you could basically resize it the more or less full screen size. So Android doesn't allow it. Of course it's ridiculous why Android forces this on the user, also that snapping to left or right of screen, but we all know Google...
Does that sound like a possible explanation to you? (I don't have a portrait video around that I could try with VLC...)
Anyway, perhaps you could at least let the user choose whether it wants the pop-up in portrait, landscape, or square. Everything after that is Android, and we have to live with it. But 3:2 portrait is very likely not what you want in every situation...

It is also not possible to define own custom buttons there. For this, you may simply use the split-screen mode of your device, you do not need a PiP.
Sure, ok. But then why have that bar at all? As I said, just put the Navi Icon in the upper left and voilà - space saved...

- map zoom > there should be no changes when switching to PiP, so you should see a zoom visible on current map.
Oh, you're right, didn't realize that. However, I had "Automatic Zooming" on, and that doesn't seem to work in PIP - could that be enabled there, too?

Oh, and additional thing: Does anyone else notice that the Text-to-Speech setting is reset? I always set it to none (don't want any audio output), but it happened to me at least three times now that after an update, it was active again. And once, I even suddenly had miles instead of km as distance unit.
Nothing severe, just a little worrying that settings change out of the blue, wondering if others experienced that, too...
