Any chance we could get something like Siri...hey audio waypoint, the get 10 or 20 seconds to record then autosave.  I am riding a motorcycle offroad and there is no way I can click any button easily with gloves on so this would be best.

or a big button right on the screen that begins this...

some way to save waypoints with an audio file attached then when I get to hotel or home I can ideally cut and paste the voice to text transcript in to the poi.
I will try that. Thank you.
Troubles & Questions / Add picts or additional text

I received 100 gpx files and some text and pictures that explain them.  I don't think it's possible but can I attach a picture or text file or embed additional text within a folder???...not the individual gpx files.  if not it would be a good feature to have a repository for attachments that is also backed up.

Troubles & Questions / OS8 vs OS11
November 17, 2022, 16:24:53
Using locus for motorcycling I had a tough time seeing the screen in direct sun so I set out to get a brighter phone.  I could spend $800+ for an S22 or $100 for an LG G7 ThinQ which has an amazing 1000 nits IP LCD screen so I am trying that.  The first one had brain damage on android 9 and I had to send it back the 2nd one has a normal brain seemingly stuck on android 8.

Does locus function fine on 8?

If so, will locus continue to function fine on 8?...or will I need 11?

Maps / USGS PADUS V3 with BLM layer
October 09, 2022, 17:10:53
Petr was kind enough to get this working as an online maps source earlier this year so the layer could be downloaded for offline.  Then recently it stopped working.

It took a bit of trial and error but apparently USGS changed some names of folders when they put up the newest PADUS v3.

Here is a WMS

If you want this layer in your online maps list (downloadable for offline) add the code in the attached xml to your list in the providers.xml file and add the png.

I think Locus should have this source in their base providers list at install.

HI Petr...

Isn't the updated/changed URL on this page for that code string that was added in to the "providers.xml? the layer can be downloaded like any map for offline?  I don't think wms can be downloaded.


There are 2 WMS links on here too under RELATED EXTERNAL SOURCES

Can these work??? downloaded???

or this

I had to move phones and managed to get everything over using a full back up and restore but it did not bring the WMS list.

1.  How do I copy that over?

2.  How do I edit names of folders and WMS links in the menu?

Troubles & Questions / Other app for MVUM yuk
September 04, 2022, 17:45:55
I recently went to the Mountain West Overland Show here in Colorado USA and had a conversation with one of Gaia's top devs.  I told him they seem to be more interested in expanding map content and not fixing the basics.  I explained that I preferred Locus but do use Gaia on occasion as the maps are second to none.  I then told him why I thought Locus is superior, this was in a crowded booth so it was a bit dicey....anyhow he was nice and said they will be fixing the basic stuff.

Now the other day we decided to run a new area here and I could not get Locus to display even close to the map data that both Gaia and Caltopo serve up with just one click.  See this

Somehow maybe Petr or someone can get MVUM to work as an online map source like he did with FS-Topo or as a WMS layer as he did with Public lands/BLM.
