2014 05 25 update
Currently there is a horrible way to insert 6 simple new points in an exists track.

And now see, how easy it can be:

Menion, do you think it is possible to simplifying this?

Quote from: joelocI updated my monstercursors a little. The "stopped" cursors are 80% opaque now to allow a little "see-through" when working with the map. The moving-cursor is 100% for maximum visibility. The north arrow works too now, although Locus apparently has a size problem there. Menion, can you tell me the size restrictions for the north arrow? Or lift them? Anyway, just did a little test bike ride in bright sunshine and boy does it make a difference. Cant imagine how I ever lived with the invisible default cursor :). The cursors will probably be too large on anything but a Galaxy Note. I am not planning to go into the hdpi/mdpi/xhdpi mess and provide differently scaled versions since I believe this to be inherently wrong. Map cursors have nothing to do with the general UI and it doesnt make sense to autoscale them in the same way as fonts or toolbars. You're welcome to change colors/sizes/etc yourself though, the .psd for Photoshop is included in the archive.

update - read first:
Locus released his own onboard Live tracking feature now

Alternatively(!), you can use my private service:

1. Send me a PM* with a nickname and you will receive a userID in my answer.
    (If you are not allowed to send PM, tell me your interest here in this thread and i will contact you)

2. Setup  Locus Pro:

3. Start Live tracking to send some points to the server.
    - don't forget to allow mobile data transfer on your phone.
    - be sure you have an GPS SATfix
    - Locus does not send data, if the GPS position is not changed.

4. Login on with your nick and userID and see your position/track...

Do you have a suggestion about this topic?

With a little smaller cross, and a better visible arrow.

- add this eg. to ""
- copy the zip to .../Locus/icons/navigation/...

Is it possible to record a track from a coaster ride?
I think the result will be unsatisfactory.
Also a downhill skiing or MBtrack.
The GPS signal be inadequate and the HW is not exactly enough.
What u think guys? Has anyone tried?

Quote from: "tramp20"ich vereine meist eine ganze tourplanung (tage/strecken/pois) via earth in einem kmzpaket, welches ich dann importieren kann.
Hi gynta,
Wie findest du alles was zu einem track gehört zusammen ?
vielleicht gibt es schon einen praktikablen Weg.....

Kurzversion s.Anhang

01 Earth: Ordner anlegen im Temp (zbTage) und füllen mit poi,overlays,tracks,...
02 exportieren des kmz
03 kmz nach Locusmap/Items kopieren
04 via map item manager importieren
Gibt es eine (legale) Möglichkeit, sich die Karten anzeigen zu lassen?
Abo,...? Finde auf der Website nichts.

Gut 60% der, in der LIste vorhanden Anbieter verweigern (zu mindest bei mir) den Dienst.
Gibt es einen Trick um div. Anbieter wieder zum Laufen zu bringen?
bzw. gibt es demnächst mal ein update bei dem die Leichen entfernt werden?

PS.: ja, ich weiß, daß man in den Settings die nicht funktionierenden Anbieter aus der Liste der sichtbaren nehmen kann.
