Quote from: Menion on February 02, 2024, 11:42:21Hi lor74cas,

there were some changes on the Crowdin side, but even our main account requires only code from the email. There isn't any alternative option except auth-app? I would expect some "Use another method" button, where your email should be used as an authenticator.

I wrote to crowdin, this is the answer

QuoteHi Lorenzo,

We will gladly help you, so we need to run a quick security check first before disabling the 2fa for your account. Please provide us with the following info:

Confirmation from the project owner, who can verify identity that we should reset the 2fa for your account.
Email + thread from this email.
Stored device cookie cnpf (from the device they were logged in previously)

To do the last one, please open your account sign-in page => open browser dev tools => go to Application tab => Cookies (attached the video recording to guide the process)

Also, we would need to inform you that we will be able to restore your access to the account within 3 working days

Looking forward to your reply,

So I need from Locus the permission from the project owner, I think I have identified the value of the requested cookie.
Of course, this procedure is not at all simple!

Hi, I was registered for Italian translations as lor74cas, it's been a while since I made any updates and today I wanted to check a translation that doesn't seem correct to me.
Unfortunately, after logging in, I am asked for the verification code with the authentication app, but I don't have any valid code generated by the authentication app.
I have not kept the recovery codes and my email is already registered with the lor74cas login, the magic link also requires the authentication code, so I can no longer log in.
Is there an alternative to creating an account with a different email?

Troubles & Questions / Re: information request

Quote from: papizac on December 24, 2023, 16:31:38Good morning
I would like to connect locus map to my smartwatch, but I couldn't find it in the locus settings.
another question: why does locus turn off when I close my smartphone and I no longer have
information about my journey when I reopen it.
Thank you for your answers
Hello,
for your smartwatch take a look at the locus plugins on app store to connect with garmin or with gear.
If your device kills Locus https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:faq:gps_lost_fix_android6&s[]=kill

HI,
if the side panel is hidden, when you click on the button to show the map legend nothing happens because the legend is opened in the hidden panel.


I would expect that if the panel is hidden when I click on the legend, it should show up again with the legend info.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.19.+ ( 9/2023 )

Quote from: michaelbechtold on October 15, 2023, 09:23:17The contour lines mentioned in the news are embedded into the .map files. And display (or not) is controlled by the theme.
The hgt files are optional and allow the dynamic elevation Feature.
Thanks for the reply, but I think that a bit of confusion arises if the map shows more detail than what is calculated for the altimetry. They should always be aligned, whereas now there is a possibility that this will not happen without the user being aware of it. Now for example I had the maps with less visible detail but Sonny's hgts at 1', but I was aware of it.Obviously it's just my opinion as long as I understand the new implementation correctly

Quote from: Menion on September 25, 2023, 09:38:40App (if we will talk about track recording), is prepared to accidentally shutdown of the whole system. So when you restore the power of the device within 10 minutes, the recording should even start again automatically.
Thanks Menion,
it's something that I, like Andrew Heard, have also tested and I confirm that it is truly a great feature of Locus.
I didn't know about the 10 minute limit, if it is exceeded Locus creates two tracks, closes the abruptly interrupted one and opens a new one?
Maybe 10 are few, especially if you don't notice that the battery has abandoned you, the low battery warning on Android has never been very relevant, perhaps you could put in place a proper acoustic warning below a certain charge threshold directly in Locus.

Quote from: Tapio on August 19, 2023, 19:45:35Not my experience. In case of Android crash/reboot I never lost a track and Locus continued recording the restored track. Happened to me ~3 times over the years.
I confirm, in the rare cases in which it happened I was always amazed how the track was then easily recovered when restarting locus.
To be sure that something hasn't changed, I did a test: I started the track and after a few minutes I switched off and restarted the device, when in locus the track is automatically resumed.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.18.+ ( 8/2023 )
August 13, 2023, 11:20:47
Quote from: joeloc on August 11, 2023, 18:45:39Buddy tracking is super unreliable btw, if anybody still cares about that function. It stops working at least least five times per day and we have to manually turn it off and on to see our points again.

It always happens when network reception is bad for a while. Locus seems to mess up internally and never gets back on track.

Btw... if you have code in there like

if phone.isOnline()
  do_stuff();
else
  do_other_stuff();

that might be the main problem. Once you leave your LTE development couch and travel through the real world, your phone will quite often only THINK it's online... like in zero bars 4G or even Edge. Transmitting a single byte might take ages though or come back with a failure after some longish timeout. Quite likely Locus hickups on that... maybe if the network error timeout is longer than the tracking interval? Just guessing.

And nope... we're not in rural India... we're in the mountains of southern France right in central Europe. Buddy tracking still fails plenty.

There are obviously at least a dozen other things wrong with buddy support in general. But unless the likely answer is different from "not a priority" (as for the last five(?) years), I won't bother repeating myself over and over again. Ask if you want two more pages of neccessary fixes... or just go cycling with a buddy, then you might finally notice yourself and do something about it :-)


I have experienced the LT fails so many times that I no longer use it.Unfortunately, I confirm that where there is reception difficulty, it freezes. I understand the technical difficulties and now I turn off data reception to save battery life.I prefer a tried and tested system I made with tasker based on text messages only, using only the telephone network is very reliable. The applicant asks for the position and the phone answers.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.18.+ ( 8/2023 )

Hello, in the daily forecast detail panel it would be useful to have a link to the next and previous day at the bottom, avoiding having to go back to the main forecast menu each time.

Hello,
"add: option to hide all other tracks except the currently active one"
useful, but a little too hidden in the track menu under tools, an icon on the track info header would be better.

Be aware that if you use my attached icon you have to pay me the rights  ;D

Quote from: Jan Čapek on May 25, 2023, 10:52:52But isn't "search this area" exactly this? Or do you missing it even for category highlighting?
I usually use a zoom that allows me to see a very small area on the screen because I prefer to see the details.
So when I do a search as the area is small I get few results as they depend on the zoom. I would prefer to set up the search with a filter of, for example, a fixed radius of 5 km. So I would always have the list of found items regardless of zoom.
Or
You could show on the map the elements found that obviously fit on the screen, but also list those that don't fit in order of distance.
So if in the list I see what I was looking for that is outside the on-screen map, I can click on it without having to zoom out on the map and be directly centered to that point

A filter could be introduced to limit searches to a radius of x kilometers.
We thus avoid useless occurrences of results that are too distant both on the map and in the list.

Quote from: Jan Čapek on May 22, 2023, 17:59:36@lor74cas It is correct behavior - this just indicates directions of results outside of your map while you can be anywhere else in the real. We plan to add distances from GPS position to the list of results bellow the map.

IMHO It's not what I would have expected.
If the search is done from the center of the map or from the GPS position, it is from that point that I would like the distance to be measured.

Hello,
The distance shown in the icon does not refer to GPS location or cursor, It seems the distance form screen border in mt.
Is this the correct behavioir?

Quote from: Andrew Heard on May 17, 2023, 17:22:41For me, track recording is 4%, and optional navigation increases that to 8% (total). Will depend completely on battery size & condition & screen brightness. I therefore (mostly) never use navigation, and simply turn on the screen briefly before any potential turn. I find looking at the map far more informative & reliable than turn instructions. I have the screen timeout for 6s. Sometimes I use POI alert but to replace navigation commands would be very tedious if lots of turns.
I agree with Andrew.
In addition to keeping the consumption of Locus under control, it is also necessary to reduce that of the device.
If you don't need to be contacted by phone, you can put it in airplane mode.
If, on the other hand, a telephone connection is needed, but it is possible to give up the internet connection, data connectivity can be disabled.
