Troubles & Questions / Where to post?

I haven't been keeping track of this closely...but if I have a question, bug report or feature request which of these 2 sites should I post?

Someone wrote in another forum:  "It's also pertinent to know that Google recently closed the scoped storage Files app loophole, so many file manager apps no longer can see inside the private folders in the Android directory."

Thank you for clarifying this. I knew I wasn't crazy. I got a new phone a little while back running android 13 and I was able to use solid explorer to get in there and then last week I tried again, and it just wouldn't work.

I will try the method cited above after my ride tomorrow.  thanks.

I guess I have been lucky because I switched to a new phone with android 13 a few months ago dn solid explorer worked for android/data folder access.  Now it doesn't and Amy other apps don't either.  Some can see the files but you can't write to it???
as for #2 I was surprised locus can calculate current position distance/time to a point clicked on the track and even jump in to the 2nd track and calculate correctly...1 out of 2 times.  Yes it was not consistent...strange.

What I could not find in locus is click anywhere on a track (not current position) and click again and get distance time values between those 2 clicked points.
On an adv motorcycle forum I asked what's the deal with DMD2 since there is sooooooo much it can't do compared to Locus.  I was promptly told what it does do it does very well.  I was skeptical and I got the paid version and played with it....well I am is true it has at least 2 features that I wanted for locus and I think many others wanted for years...please correct me if I am wrong...  Intermediate time/distance to various targets and a simple time/distance measure tool along a track.  It has a high contrast mode and a better "dashboard" experience too.

So I am trying a hybrid approach to nav by keeping locus for the planing and back end library but using dmd2 for the actual following of the tracks for now....I wish locus just had all these features.

You can look at this area "Norwood, CO" in Gaia and it is impressive how much data they have.  I was told they pay to access the USGS servers for that.  I'd pay in the Locus Store for access to MVUM and PADUS as an online layer we can download.

Once a year you might want to look at, osmand, gaia, DMD2.  Recently I was told DMD2 has a feature that shows on screen time/distance to multiple waypoints within the overall track all while navigating all on a highly legible screen...something that this long time locus user told me locus does not have and is superior to all other apps...I have not loaded it to try it.  His claim was DMD2 is the absolute best for following tracks...not making them.  I had the chance to play with it a bit at a recent navigation seminar at a bike shop and one thing I noticed is that it appears to have the PADUS/BLM colors nicely on an imported OAM  Will have to figure that one out.

Maybe one of your 3rd party map devs could add some of this???

darn...I was hoping you could do it.  kind of like you did with PADUS...take a url and convert it in to syntax like this:

   <provider id="11000" type="0" visible="true" background="-1">
      <name>USGS PADUS</name>
      <mode>USGS Fee managers</mode>

<!-- FS-Topo maps -->
    <provider id="10805" type="0" visible="true" background="-1">

thanks anyway

thanks...many of them don't work for some reason???  I was always able to get active fires but that is gone???

We always have fires running here...loads of them...using "My Radar" app there is probably over 100 now.

can you get any fires???
