tommi, I'm not sure if I understand, you just want to add button on bottom of "Quick map switch" dialog that will lead to map manager screen?

I'm not exactly sure if this one matches the discussion here but one little request for the "Quick map switch": It would be nice if it showed at the end something like a shortcut to the actual Map manager. Just a typo: The title of the "Quick map switch" should be changed from "Map manager" to something like "Quick map switch".

Menion you are the greatest!
Yes, you are right "enable map rotate", "shift map center", "enable auto-zoom" should be thought of as well and were also actions I performed every time I used the navigation.

Btw., I'll be on a trip to Austria starting Monday morning where I could test a trial version ... . But of course I don't want to badger you.

Troubles & Questions / Navigation voice interrupts itself and repeats
« on: December 12, 2011, 20:53:56 »
Hi Menion,
I performed several navigation tests with voice output (German).
In general the voice output is quite accurate.
But there is one problem which typically occurs during passing of a roundabout traffic:
One would expect one output of e.g. "Enter the roundabout and take the 1st exit"
but it happens more like this            "Enter the roundabout and Enter the roundabout and take Enter the roundabout and take the 1st exit".

What could be the reason for that?

Troubles & Questions / Navigation usability issue
« on: December 12, 2011, 20:42:55 »
Hi Menion,
the prestored routes helped me a lot when travelling on Madeira (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=1304)!
Especially the automatic change from navigation to guiding on deviation from the original route helps fantastically in a foreign town if you have no internet access for recalculation.
Thanks for that!

During the week I had several chances to test the navigation which in general worked very well, there are only few things regarding usability/convenience which could be improved.
These are the steps to use a prestored navigation (not all activities need to be performed in all situations and in exact the following order):
1) Switch on GPS in Android system
2) Switch on GPS in Locus
3) Deactivate GPS auto-off in Locus
4) Set the tick for the prestored navigation route from list of tracks
5) Tap on the track on any corner in the graph  (not on a straight part of the graph -> no popup, not on one of the red points -> there you can only create a new navigation route)
6) Select navigate in the popup menu.
7) Use navigation
8) Tap on ->->o and select "Switch guide off"
9) Hide route
10) Restore setting from 3)
11) Restore setting from 2)
12) Restore setting from 1)

These are a lot of steps one should keep in mind to use navigation successfully and later on return to original behaviour and settings of Locus.

What do you think of the following proposals:
A) For 4): Provide additional item ""Navigate" in the popup for tap on the prestored navigation route. This would at least make 5) and 6) redundant.
B) Like A) + 1) + 2)  +3)
C) For 8): Offer additional item "End navigation" in the popup for ->->o and perform 9), 10), 11), 12).

If you don't like to change the android system setting 1)+12) this is fine with me. Then it is consistent behaviour with general handling of GPS in Locus.

Zum Thema "Offline Berechnung von Navigationsrouten": Vektorkarten sind da an sich eine ideale Ausgangsbasis, denn sie enthalten alle nötigen Informationen.
Locus benutzt für die Darstellung von Vektorkarten die Library Mapsforge und deren Entwickler haben sich u.a. auch das Thema Offlineberechnung von Routen auf die Fahnen geschrieben, siehe die einleitenden Sätze auf
D.h. wir sollten auf dieses Projekt warten. Allerdings ist die Entwicklung dort nicht so dynamisch wie bei Menion...

Hi Menion,
in order to be able to use free space on both internal and external card could make it possible to specify paths for maps?

Thanks berkley,
I have the vector map addon already since summer and I'm just preparing the routes I'll follow next week on Madeira.

Similar problem for me, same solution for you?

I remember I had at least a very similar problem. Reason was full diskl (or insufficient disk space).

Hi Menion,
could you provide an answer on this, please?
Just not to let me wait forever.


Declined / Re: Navigation with pre-stored routes
« on: November 13, 2011, 21:55:43 »
Hi Menion,
thank you, this is actually exactly what I expected - I simply didn't find it because I always used the "Navigation between two points" which doesn't have the flexibility needed here.
Now I added "Add new route" to my buttons on the right edge - so I won't forget about this function anymore.

Declined / Navigation with pre-stored routes
« on: November 13, 2011, 16:03:32 »
Hi Menion,
I'll go abroad on 1st of December for a week. There I'd like to use car navigation.
As I will have no data plan (I guess there is not even GSM reception at all locations) I'd like to calculate and store the planned routes already from at home (and use it with vector map) (examples: Airport-Hotel, Hotel-Location1, Location1-Location2, Location2-Hotel etc.).

I'm not sure if Locus does already support this, maybe I just don't understand how to use it. If I enable the stored track "Navigation" I don't get the fat green line as with instant navigation but only the track display together with points for navigation instructions.
In addition the track "Navigation" gets overwritten everytime I let calculate a new navigation. Is this on purpose?

Could you help me?
I guess such a feature could be helpful for many of us.
(Even more perfect would of course be offline navigation with rout calculation based on stored vector map but I don't know if you have this on your roadmap).

Thank you for your excellent and enduring work on this project,

Implemented / Re: Map scale
« on: November 10, 2011, 22:41:34 »
I have an additional remark:
The +/- button sets a certain scale. If I zoom by draging two fingers on the touch screen I can get stepless scales. But as soon as I remove fingers from screen the map display returns to a fixed zoom again.
Could Locus keep the stepless scale until next zoom action (either +/- or again draging with fingers)?

In the upper left corner you see the road crossing with the arrow for the next turn etc.
Below this symbol there is a small button with two small arrows and a small round button on it. Touch this small symbol and select "Guide off".
