I ride with a few people through remote areas and I see things I'd like to know more about and want to look in to later but I can't stop, take off my gloves, set in a waypoint. I know locus can add audio to a waypoint.
What would be the best is an audio command like "Hey Locus save audio waypoint" then it begins recording my voice for 20 seconds then saves and goes back to the normal screen.
I have asked on the locus forum and apparently the Tasker app might be able to do this but I could never get anywhere with it.
Recently I was surprised that all this can be done but it takes a bit more effort.
I created a contact on my phone "Tommy" and set it to the same number on the phone.
"Hey google share my location with Tommy" will autoinsert location in to a text, then "Send"
"Hey google send message to Tommy" will open a message field and I can dictate a message, then "Send"
"Hey Google open Locus map pro" brings you back in to locus.
So when I get home I open the texts and cut and paste the coordinates in to locus create a waypoint and enter the text based on the following message using the time stamps.
So this is a bit of work but in the course of a day there might be 5.
Does anyone know an app that can do this better or a google voice command that would create a voice to text message with location attached or even a voice audio message with location attached??
Or even a way to launch video recording that will record my voice and it doesn't matter the image...but have a location in the video meta data?
...or a way to do this within locus???
Ps...I believe this will work offline...if not using email instead will.
There was an offending folder in themes with the name MAC_OSX which was from me compressing the new Adventure theme on my mac and no matter what program I tried, sold explorer etc. would not delete this folder....this is what was causing the apache xml blinking error. I manually exported 2 tracks to gpx files that were after the last full backup then did a full restore and got it working again.
the file when downloaded was a folder and I thought it was supposed to be zipped so I zipped it on a Mac using 13.2 then copied the zipped file in to the themes folder.
Then started locus and it freaked and flashes in orange the attached message. I then restarted locus no change, restarted phone multiple times no change, then removed adventure.zip and no change. locust continues to flash this?
Any chance we could get something like Siri...hey locus...save 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.
