Maps / OpenAndroMap problem
« on: June 27, 2014, 14:13:20 »
I tried several times to download from andronomaps. But I can not unzip the files, error in packed file.
So I have no andronomaps and can not see the Autobahnnumbers.  :-[

Ich verwende Locus auf einem S3 mini und Note 8.0, sodass der Kitkatupdate noch eine Weile mich nicht betrifft.
Hier ist eine gute Info für 4.4 Updater:

Troubles & Questions / How to change icons in upper bar ??
« on: November 05, 2013, 13:12:42 »
When I select 3 items in upper bar I always get:

I want to have GPS and not Settings. How can I manage it?
See appendix.

Troubles & Questions / No gps signal in airplane??
« on: August 14, 2013, 18:57:06 »
On my first flight with Locus I used a gps mouse and got 15 and more satelites displaid. But none could be used by Locus : --/20.
There were strong signals, but no fix in Locus?
No way using Locus in flights?

Troubles & Questions / How to change icons in upper bar ??
« on: August 09, 2013, 17:32:02 »
I can default to 1-4 icons in the upper bar.
But how can I change/delete this icons?
If I use change by long pressing it, I come to the function window. But if I try to uncheck, I get the error
"Elements is here already"

How can I handle differnt icons?

Troubles & Questions / POI Tag without distance ??
« on: July 22, 2013, 07:24:02 »
How can I disable the distance  from the actual position? In most cases I only need the name of the POI?
But I do not find any handle in the Locus settings to switch it on or off ??

Discussion/New features / Searching in contacts
« on: June 30, 2013, 13:09:51 »
Searching in contacts is a great feature in Locus. Great when contact begins with A or B. But a lot of scrolling is neccesary if you look for an contact beginning with S or Z  :( .

It would be nice, if there would be a search window for the first letter or letters !

Discussion/New features / One Step back button ???
« on: June 30, 2013, 12:51:54 »
Working in Locus, I often try to go back one step, but in many cases I arrive in "Would you like to end Locus". In all this cases I don't want to leave, but I want to go back to the last step!
I think it would be much better and more userfriendly if there is

a new button "LAST STEP"   or  "LAST COMMAND"


a button "END LOCUS" and the existing Android BACKBUTTON brings me back to my last step/command.

I hope this could be implementsed without a big job to add into Locus??

Example: I am in screen 1 and search a kontactadress, find it and see it on the map. But I don't want this adress and would like to go back to search another contact or even go back to screen 1.
Clicking the Android Backbutton shows screen 5 and not a step back!

Troubles & Questions / I want only one map when Locus starts ??
« on: June 24, 2013, 23:42:32 »
I have a lot of maps (vector,own,wmn) on my S3 mini.
When I start Locus, all maps seem to load into memory.
But I only want to have only one map loaded, because if I am in Poland, I only want to Poland map and not many other German maps.
I think it is a waste of memory and time.
How can I manage to have only a certain map loaded? Or is it of no importance, if all the maps are loaded into Locus at start?

Wishlist / Checkbox marking only in checkbox ??
« on: May 13, 2013, 10:44:00 »
If you are walking around with your Smartphone and change some settings by dipping on the display, often it will change the checkbox settings, because the full line is push-sensitive. But you didn't want to change the checkbox, but only scroll through the menue or call the program-feature.

Is there a chance to separate checkbox marking from marking the whole line?

Troubles & Questions / Pathaway *.prc files in Locus ?
« on: May 12, 2013, 10:31:11 »
Is there any chance to use Pathaway *.prc files  with Locus?

I do a lot of gps work in forest and have a lot of calibrated maps with borders and landmarks.
It would be great, if I could convert this maps into the Locus world.
But I didn't find how to manage it.
Any help appreciated. :D

PS  I just saw, that I can export maps from Quovadis to apemap.
So if I can import apemap into Locus, my problem can be solved ?

Wishlist / Track speed color
« on: May 08, 2013, 18:26:11 »
[attachment=0:246yqhlz]colortrack.jpg[/attachment:246yqhlz]There is also an other idea/wish to tracks:

In Touratech Qvadis 6 you can colour code a track with track speed. I use this when going by car and want to see my different speed on certain places.
Could this also an item in Locus?

I see this two  items in the online maps, which can be marked or not.
What can I do with this maps? Are this maps without any contents?

Troubles & Questions / sporatic change of Locus main directry
« on: May 06, 2013, 17:18:41 »
Yesterday I suddenly lost all my Vectormaps and also some other data.
AFter redownloading all vector files, locus was working again.

LOCUS reported a second main directry not on extsd-card?

Today the same behavier.
Restarting sometimes cures the effect.
Reinstalling Locus was ok, but the problem comes back ??
It happens on my Note 10.2 but not with my S3mini

Troubles & Questions / BT GPS receiver used
« on: May 03, 2013, 18:38:33 »
I use an extern BT mouse which works fine with Locus.
I can set a signal, if a fix is done. It works fine.
I can set a signal if a fix is lost. But no signal is generatet. Neither a tone, nor a vibration.

A bug ?
