it says 'html viewer'. i have no further info on it. it seems to be built into cyanogenmod7.
no problem ;-)
so for the moment, i went back to the former revision to find out why some of my raster maps are not found by locus (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1390#p8242), as i cannot check this with the beta version which does not load raster maps at all.
the line in the gpx is:
i loaded to check this out. unfortunately, there seems to be a problem...still...
on the title page of the cache, i get the additional hotlink 'URL' named 'Datei: GC2DBB0.htm'.
this hotlink tries to open webpage: 'content://' but is not able to open it, although there is a file 'sdcard/locus/data/geocaching/2d/gc2dbb0.htm'.
dont' know what's wrong ;-(
what is the '?text/html' for? could this be the problem?
does 'content://' really point to '/sdcard/locus/data/...' ?
i switched from the android market version to Locus
unfortunately, Locus cannot find any of my raster maps in the locus/maps folder. it only works with vector maps ;-(
or am i doing anything wrong?
so now, autoloading of rastermaps with different resolutions works, but the next problem already appears...

while i have a 1m and a 200k map for a region, the 25k map is split into 4 subregions.
by adding a _1 to the 1m map, a _2 to the 200k map and a _3 to the 25k maps, only one of the 25k maps seems to be instantiated. no matter in which part of the region i am, it always loads the 1st one of the 25k maps when switching to a higher resolution, no matter if this map covers the actual centerpoint.

so now, i merged the 4 25k maps to a single map, resulting in a .tar file of 2.7gb.

while android can see this file, it does not show up in locus.

is there a file size limit in locus?
how much is this?

what workaround can be used? i.e. is there a way to use more than 1 file of the same resolution or how can i make this work?

sorry, i misunderstood!
i thought that means that the maps can be in any directory below locus/maps.
now it works ;-)
thanx a lot!

i tried again with other raster maps of the same region and named them ch1.tar, ch2.tar, ch3.tar and ch4.tar. i placed 'em directly under locus/maps.
after loading a map, i can zoom within this map when pressing zoomlock first, but there's none of the other maps loaded.
so i renamed them ch4.tar, ch3.tar, ch2.tar and ch1.tar to check if the order has impact, but it does not work either.
i have no idea what i'm doing wrong...
yes, filename on andridpit is ...1.21...

isn't this the right place to find the latest version?
ok, so i checked the link again with the lates version of locus:

line in the GPX file:

locus tries to open:
content:// ... ?text/html

with no success.

although there is a file:

on the flash.

so what am i still doing wrong?
when opening map manager, all maps are shown.

ist there a way to only show maps valid vor actual centerpoint?

or is there a way to directly open next higher/lower resolution map for actual centerpoint?

hm. didn't get that working...
what else tool do you recommend to generate raster maps for locus?

thanx, great!

i generated this map using ozimaptrans. do you know if there's a way to generate multilayer maps to have a wider zoom range?

i just generated my first rastermap (pixelmap in .tar format).
seems to work fine on locus, but i'm not able to zoom.
when using multitoch to zoom in/out, the map zooms, but as soon as i take my fingers off the display, it goes back to original size.
also the zoom buttons on the bottomline are grayed out.
what am i doing wrong / what do i have to do to be able to zoom rastermaps?
i've sent the files to your email!
