1. really interesting. Just get same bug report on the help desk and have no idea how this happens. There is only a single file per map in your maps folder? Are you using "External maps"?
2. Do not understand. Fact that application is visible in the list of recently used apps means nothing. This list only displays apps you used, not the apps that run. Also, on Android everything runs always, it says nothing. Important is if application do anything, if consume battery, CPU, internet etc. Do Locus Map anything when you close it? Hope not.
  • External Maps did the trick: in "Maps-Offline" view there was an "external" path set; after removing that path the issue is gone.
    Thanks for the tip.
  • I try to explain.
    Press button down left and afterwards the cross top right in LM. LM just gets send to background and is still running (as LM notification in top panel says).
    You can also see if you start track recording first, then try to close as described --> track recording is still running.
    All other Apps (and all previous Locus versions) will be closed by this procedure.

Hi menion,

thanks a lot for the hard work and the new version!
Some feedback:
  • offline multi language maps entries are shown two times each: in Maps-Offline as well as in Quick Map Change:
  • LM doesn't want to close as intended: neither button down right + confirm
    nor button down left and afterwards LM cross button top right
    closes LM - it's still running (the two pictures on the right each show the status after the attempt to close).

    As a workaround, button down right - confirm - button down left - cross top right closes LM.

Are there any news regarding the switch of Geocaching4Locus from the old to the new Groundspeak API?
Retiring date of the old API is getting closer and closer ...

Troubles & Questions / Wrong order of Geocaching waypoints
« on: August 29, 2018, 20:31:33 »
The order of Geocaching waypoints changes when updating a Geocache by "Geocache Live".
To reproduce:
  • import e.g. multi-cache GC6XAQ8 via GPX import (GPX file downloaded directly from Cache listing)
  • observe that the order of waypoints matches exactly the order in the listing (ordered by waypoint code)

  • now update the cache by pressing "Share" button and "Update cache"

  • after the update the order of waypoints changed; it doesn't follow the order in the cache listing anymore

The changed order is especially problematic for multi-caches that often have different types of waypoints: stages, reference points, parking areas, trailheads, final location.
The waypoint order is set by the Cache owner in the cache listing and usually follows the order the  waypoints have to be visited in the field, i.e. the order matters.

By the way, one gets the same (changed) order of waypoints also when importing the cache via Live Map or bookmark list - seems to be related to "Geocache Live".

Maybe two possible solutions:
  • adding a sorting possibility to the waypoints tab: e.g. sort by Waypoint code or name or ...; then it's a user choice
  • let the waypoint order always follow the cache listing, no matter how it was imported or updated

In Settings - Navigation - Route re-calculation, change the value of "Distance for recalculation" to something different than the default value 100m, e.g. 50m:

As long as Locus stays open the new value will be kept.
But as soon you restart Locus the default value of 100m is shown instead of the changed value.

- open Tracks tab of the Data Manager
- select a track and open Track detail
- in track detail screen, select a tab other than the Information tab, e.g. Chart
- now rotate the device (e.g. from portrait to landscape)
After screen rotation the tab changed back to Information tab (instead of staying at the current tab).
