Hi menion
if i change the "folder style" of an track folder e.g. width of the track, all map previews are gone and world map is visible.
There is no refrech :-[
i have to open each track or do a long click on each world map one by one to see the map preview again

Hello menion
while answering question to line style in german board i noticed two settings which could/should be changed/simplyfied ;)
1. setting Guidance/Style on map >color and text size
and identically setting in
config.cfg > # color for the 'guiding' and  # font size for the 'guiding' text
are twice, i think config settings are needless.

2. Option "Navigate to"
- if Guide Mode "Navigation" is selected style on map is used from setting "Navigation"  :)
- if Guide Mode "Guidance" is selected style on map is used from setting " Maps/Points&Tracks/Tracks >Track color and width" and this isn´t intuitive :-[ if user select guidance he expect line style from setting guidance or from navigation (in this case) and not from setting tracks :-[

what do you think?
Bei mir erscheint seit dem letzten Update von FN der Button für die Spracheingabe des Logs nach klick auf den +Button nicht mehr :-[
Ich hab definitiv die Proversion installiert, es sind z.B. mehr als 5 optionale Vorlagen möglich.

Ist das nur bei mir so?

Troubles & Questions / elevation data on Locus FREE
November 16, 2016, 13:38:41
Hello menion,
"Dynamic elevation" is a available option in locus FREE :)

my question:
when a new inexperienced locus user download maps from store he isn´t able to display offline elevation values at mapcenter, because he can´t download elevation data at the end of this download process > message: only with PRO...

On the other side you describe in "Mapblog" and "Manual" how to download and use needed data from

why you make it so laborious for beginner?

in following page on tab/maps i miss important info that "Map shading" is only possible with PRO

Troubles & Questions / price Locus PRO

Achtung, dies ist die Weiterführung eines Beitrages aus dem Helpdesk

Hallo Uwe
in dem genannten Link bezieht sich m.E. der Verweis auf die PRO-Version auf die Anwendung "Geländerelief."
versuchs doch einfach mal mit der beschriebenen Punktmethode/Videoanleitung, dann siehst Du ob die Höhenangabe auf der Karte bei der FREE-Version funktioniert ;)
Die dafür runtergeladen hgt-Datei hat  ca 1 MB und deckt einen Bereich vertikal ca.110Km und horizontal ca. 55Km ab
Die Höhendaten "M32" haben entpackt ca. 66MB
QuoteTatsächlich wurde mir ein kostenloser Download von bis zu zwei Dateien angeboten. Jedoch bin ich daran gescheitert, daß alleine die Datei fûr die Nordhälfte von Deutschland 1,6 GB groß ist und ich nicht mehr derart viel Speicherplatz in meinem Smartphone habe.
Ich glaube hier verwechselst Du etwas,
Die 1,6GB beziehen sich auf die Vectorkarte "Deutschland Nord" ohne Höhendaten (hgt)
Das Speicherplatzproblem kannst Du ja bezgl offlinekarten und hgt-Daten lösen, indem Du diese auf der externen SD ablegen kannst :)
bei mir werden bei der Navigation sowohl der Navigationscursor als auch der Kartencursor angezeigt, ist das so gewollt?
Hab bis jetzt keine Einstellmöglichkeit gefunden dass nur einer angezeigt wird :-[

Perhaps a new "target group" is coming up, so keep it in mind while your develpment :)


Hello menion,
a attached photo inside geocache listing is only visible if i open the cache listing and then attachement tab.
If i open a wpt of a geocache and jump back to cache listing attachement tab there is no photo available :-[
see screencast
e.g. "more functions" or "backup manager"
and so if i try to use restore and search for the needed backup file in landscape mode to see complete file name, after click on file no further window open :-[

and so it is not complete visible, neither in landscape nor in portrait

Tracks mit selbem "Namen" kann man ohne Nachfrage mehrfach importieren
Hi menion
currently possible zoom levels depend on (basis) map, e.g. Lo map up to ZL22, if i use a overlay with max e.g. ZL17 both displayed maps differ from ZL18  :-[
I think it would be better, locus stop possibility to zoom if ZL isn´t available in overlay.
Maps / [TUT] Historical maps
December 17, 2015, 20:34:15
,,HowTo" find historical map images in internet with GE and create map for later use as overlay inside Locus.

Run rumsey_collection.kmz inside GE:
mark "index map" on left side in GE, > available maps are visible,
left mouse click on rectangle you are interested, next click link "read more, view....."
in opening browser window select map > "export", > "extra large" and download image.
Map covers ~27X37 Km, size <10MB unpacked .jpg, downscaled and calibrated ~ 17MB

Run historischekarten.kmz inside GE:
mark "Rahmen" on left side in GE, > available maps are visible,
open "Karten" with "+",
open "alphabetisch" with "+",
mark e.g. "Bamberg" now this map is loaded inside GE.
Right mouse click on "Bamberg"/Properties and copy link.
Open this link with your browser, right mouse click on image/save graphic

Calibrate this image inside Locus
menu/More functions/MAPTOOLS/Image map calibration

Since V 3.14.0 you can use kmz-files as overlay and set transparency of this,
so you´re able to compare e.g. building development or course of a river.

Attached you find both kmz-files

Have fun

I am really astonished how precisely maps are drawn hundred years ago without any GPS and PC.

Hi menion
i was walking on a multi and can´t find a stage, so i run "update cache" to read last logs. Now i read in logs about changed formula and description inside a WPT, but i didn´t see any changes :-[
Back home i took a look on cache description on PC and there i saw the changes.
After some tests i found, that changed WPT types or names are updated well after "update cache"  :), but not changed content (text, formula)  :o
my solution for now, delete WPT´s and run "update cache" so also content of WPT is up to date ;)

EDIT if you need an example for tests you can use one of my own e.g. GC21TVZ, let me know when you have installed it via GC4L then i will change some text inside WPT and give you info

Hi menion
in my maps offline folder are different maps available from same area.
If i delete current loaded offline map, switch back to map view, locus load randomly automatic a online map ::)
In this case i expect that locus load another available offline map of this area.
If i open "select map", offline map tab is furthermore opened althought a online map is loaded.
see attached screencast
Troubles & Questions / Setting
October 13, 2015, 19:24:21
Hi menion
Menu>Settings>Track recording>Recording profiles/Advanced settings>Automatic export
by default there is no export type displayed :)
after export was once enabled, the export type e.g. GPX is always displayed in red letters in setting dialog although the "share exported data" is not enabled.
I think it would be more understandable if e.g. GPX is grayed, if "share exported data" is disabled

Troubles & Questions / Link inside GC-Listing
October 09, 2015, 13:05:37
Hi menion
i´m not sure we discussed long time ago this problem,
Link for download of cartidge is inside listing of a wherigo cache, if i click on this link, page of is opened inside locus and i am not able to sign in for download this cartridge.
Is it possible to change behavior while click on a link inside a listing?
e.g. popup window,  "open in browser"   "copy link adress to clipboard"
