Updated all my UK OS map tiles this morning, cost a few pounds, and they all appear a bit softer on screen that the last set, just a touch less sharp, but noticeably so.

The only extra option I'd like for photos taken in-app, is to be able to choose the storage folder.

Yep there was a typo but not that comma  ::)
Troubles & Questions / Set custom camera app
April 24, 2024, 14:30:28
Hi I'd like to set an android custom camera app for locus to use, as per expert settings>tweaks. How do I use it? I have copied what I think is the package name from the bottom of the app info in android settings, and pasted that com.intermedia, into the input in locus, restarted the app and still have the default camera.
Would be obliged for suggestions.
I'm struggling to find how to stop live tracking from starting at app launch. I've got it set up to auto-start with recording profiles but my new installation/phone starts it as soon as the app opens and I don't want that. I'm sure I've seen a setting for it somewhere but I can find it today. Can someone point me in the right direction please?
Morning, I have a question regarding the difference I have noticed in track length recording between my garmin forerunner 255 and my Locus map app. I did a walk yesterday and ran both at the same time. I walked either 9.7km or 10.9km (locus vs garmin). There are differences in length, elevation gained (locus vs garmin) 433 vs 509 but maximum elevation (locus vs garmin) 257m vs 268m. I know the platforms are different but this is over 10% difference, it's quite surprising to me. What can I do to find out which is most accurate?

Both tracks shown below.
Would be nice to be able to clear all buttons and panels for screenshots.
This fix is solid, to the point that the photos are turned off everytime the app is closed. I actually like it like that, so if that's unintended please keep it as an option.
Thanks Menion. I do normally close the app by swiping away in the active apps view on phone. I have to switch off the folder in the settings of the map screen content geotagged photos option. Still switches the option on every time the app restarts but does not show anything because no photo folder is selected as an option in the settings. Hope that helps.
Everytime locus starts it turns on geotagged photos. I turn them off in map-screen content but next time I start the app they are turned on again.
Completely agree, great that you've done that for us.

that would be great!
I didn't expect a solution at all.

Hi, I agree about the Stevenson screen, I operate 3 weather stations which utilise Stevenson screens. Good discussion folks.

Having tested the WS07 sensors extensively. I can say with confidence that the already very slow response to temperature changes is much slower when the sensor is placed in a small bag. I even made a bag out of goretex. Other issues come into play when sunlight hits the bag. Side by side the bagged one reaches a significantly higher temperature. I chose an IP64 rated device which lives on the outside of my pack but it only records temperature in its own app. I prefer to have all my activity data in one app so moved to the garmin ecosystem. Their temperature sensor does not have an IP rating but has been tested by users down to 10m (too deep for bluetooth comms). In the end I chose waterproof devices over one that's not because where I live, if it's not raining it's either just stopped or about to start. Currently I own 7 sensors in 4 different types. Maybe I have a problem 😜

Hi Wole, agree regarding the price but would like to say they are small and very light. Waterproofness us important to me, we've already had over 2300mm of rain here  so far this year  ;D

Hi Wole. I asked for an alternative sensor a while back Tempodisc they have an sdk available on their site. I have 3 of their sensors, one temperature only and fully waterproof, the other temp and humidity which is not waterproof. High quality product available directly from supplier based in UK and USA or via amazon. Locus connects to the sensor but can't read any data sadly. My request didn't gain traction so I moved on to the garmin ecosystem for recording all my activity data, using the tempe for temperature, so instead of using locus daily, I now use it only occasionally. The sensor blue option is not waterproof and therefore not really rugged enough for general outdoor use. The inkbird looks good, if not quite large, and the price is affordable. Maybe its an option too?
