Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus vs. BRouter, path confusion
« on: April 09, 2020, 13:51:45 »
You are correct, the set up is incredibly confusing now, due largely to Android security restrictions.
I also now have two folders of profiles. As I understand it:
- in Locus mode Locus can access its own internal Brouter profiles plus the ones in /brouter/profiles2. It then communicates with Brouter via an api and Brouter then writes a copy of the selected profile into _its_ system data folder (Android/data...) under the name of remote.brf and uses this to calculate a route.
- in Brouter mode, Locus relies entirely on Brouter and the settings in Locus cannot be used and are greyed out. Brouter accesses its own system folder directly and uses either its default profile/mode mapping or the one you can set up yourself in the Brouter app. So, this uses the Android/data... folder. As far as I can see this way of doing things has little to commend it now and is largely historic.

I think this is a known issue if you have Automatic map loading turned on for offline vector maps. (Settings - Maps - Offline maps - LoMaps & other vector maps).

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion

What I'd like is for the map to recenter on the appropriate Via Point or Shaping Point when I tap its icon in the new Route Planner - or it could be an option on the triple dot overflow menu. Or is there already some other way of achieving that?

It's far from clear that Settings is to be found not be tapping More Functions (picture 1) but by sliding the pop up menu further up (picture 2).

For me, the mini icons appear in the bottom row if I chose to have five buttons in the bottom row but revert to normal size when I change to four buttons in the bottom row.

My one concern over the increasing complexity of what can be done with and to Locus is simply that it presents a large raft of perplexing options to any new user.
I think you need an initial simple interface, and as @tapio says, maybe some ui presets.

Do you mean to enable map rotation? This one is the second click on the center button. At the moment, you are "centered", the second click enable rotation.

If you mean "Show view", this is as well as "magnifier" in Map-screen content > Auxiliary graphics settings
Neat

@menion Thanks. A hidden corner of Locus I'd not explored.

@menion
It does seem to be an MF problem. At least I found someone reporting the same artefact with MF two years ago.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Google Navigation support
« on: June 21, 2019, 10:59:52 »
@arisoft
To make sure we are clear, once you have got the pop up context menu, select Detail. This gives the point detail screen that Menion refers to. At the bottom of that you can tap on a number of options including a navigate icon and a share icon. The navigate icon gives me a number of options (including Google directions and Streetview). This depends however on Locus recognising your other installed apps. Otherwise, as Menion says, tap on the Share icon and share with other map apps.

In MF4 maps, texts such as town names are frequently truncated at tile boundaries on first display (moving the map to the location, changing map) but display correctly on zooming out and then in, or vice versa.

Updated in the first post for Locus 3.38+ (new rendering engine).

Note if you have installed any of the interim versions of this theme, please uninstall and delete them by means of a long press in the Locus theme selector.

@menion. Yes, I'm getting the expected difference now, but I had to restart the phone before Locus restarts made any difference.
