Troubles & Questions / Display updates during navigation
« on: November 03, 2011, 17:51:06 »
Menion, sorry I have to stress my point from viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1243#p7363 again but I try to be more precise this time.
I use car navigation with vector maps and activated auto-zoom on my SGS I.
All three features are really useful but the combination is almost unusable because of display updates shortly following each other with the effect that most of the time there is no complete map display on the phone's screen but only tiles of it.

I think the reasons for this behaviour are
- bad render performance for vector maps (o.k., I understand that this isn't your business)
- frequent display updates triggered by
   --- auto-zoom (due to detected change of speed) and
   --- movement of car
- restricted processor performance
Please correct me if you think this is wrong.

If you like to read a proposal for a improvement:
I think a preparation of the screen image for the next display update in the background could improve the situation drastically: leave display as is (only move the "car cursor" until calculation of the next display image is complete.
Do you think this is possible?

+1 from my side
This together with the much worse render performance of vector maps compared to other maps are the major drawbacks of locus vector map feature.
Menion, don't get me wrong, vector maps in locus are highly welcome!

Gebe Lindwurm vollkommen recht. Habe das gleiche Phänomen vor ein paar Tagen auch beobachtet, konnte es jetzt aber mit der aktuellen Locus Pro Version 1.13.5 nicht mehr reproduzieren. Ob das wirklich an der Version liegt weiß ich aber nicht.
Mir ist aber auch mit der aktuellen Version aufgefallen, daß ein Locus-Prozess CPU-Last erzeugt, obwohl Locus nur im Hintergrund ist und zwar ohne dass GPS, Navigation, Tracking oder ähnliches aktiviert wäre. Nach meinem Verständnis gibt es hier gar keinen Grund für eine Aktivität. Wenn ich Locus dann verlasse verschwindet es aus der Prozessliste.
SGS I mit Android 2.3.3.

2) why you need this? When you have guiding enabled, you also have GPS enabled correct? You can use Locus also for other tasks then for Guiding and for then you want to be able to turn screen off right? Hmm ..

I have a similar wish and I can explain why this setting serves a different usecase: GPS is also enabled if I e.g. record a track but then I don't need screen on. It's a bit annoying to change the screen setting if I want to switch from track recording to guiding and viceversa.
