During my recent vacation I recorded all my moves. In this I found two problems:

  • The recording would often not continue after I had remained in one spot for some time (longer than 10 minutes). I have 'Record only when moving' on to limit track points, but it seems that after such a break in recording Locus often does not start to store track points again.This happened both with stops outside (with good GPS signal) and stops inside (with bad signal). My workaround was to press pause and record after any break to make sure that recording commenced again but I don't think this should be needed. Is this a bug or did I do something wrong?
  • A second, less important point is that I would like a faster switch between recording profiles within Locus. Now I have to press on the recording tab, then on the wrench icon, then settings and finally on the new profile. When often switching from driving to walking this gets annoying. In the widget it can be done quickly, but I didn't find such option within Locus itself. Is it there?

Wishlist / Google Maps Engine Lite
June 13, 2013, 21:49:50

It seems Google is phasing out it old My Maps and replacing it with the Google Maps Engine Lite. After some playing around with it, it looks like a great improvement over My Maps.
Are there any plans to incorporate them in Locus, like My Maps is already?

Greetings, Sander.
Wishlist / Backup to cloud
November 22, 2012, 15:58:50
After dealing with a corrupted Micro-SD-card and almost losing a lot of valuable (at least for me) recorded tracks, I have one request:
The ability to make automatic backups to one or more of the major cloud services like Google Drive and Dropbox. This will also protect your valuable data when your phone gets stolen or is lost.
I think all the major cloud-providers have an Android-sdk or API so including them should not be so difficult.

By the way, I managed to recover my tracks from the SD-card by making an image of the drive, extracting all NMEA-sentences (no files could be found, so I had Matlab search through the whole 16GB of data) and from that reconstructing gpx-files which could be imported into Locus again. But, a backup on Dropbox would have saved me this task.
