Testing / Re: [APP-DEV] - version 2.10.2+
« on: April 03, 2013, 23:56:12 »
Today i tried Locus beta version downloaded from Post nr.1 - I wanted to see how works Slope and Vertical Speed. And works.
But there  where some problems at the start. (In seetings i have autocalibration with built in baromether.)

I started recording tracks ( driving a car in the city generaly on flat).Trak was recordering but Dashboard was not working. I saw screen like this

Then when i tried to stop recordering suddenly Locus ''crash'' i have to switch off my phone.Then i started Locus again. This time Dashboard worked perfectly.

I got screen like this

(This Icon VAM -it is vertical speed .
I agree with Tommi , better to see  m/h  not km/h. But OK 1,2 km is 1200 m )

My recordered tracks seems to be OK.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Track export problem

You are completely right Menion.
Thanks, now i understand.

I had ,, Compatible with Garmin'' - Say a true i don't know why i enabled this( i don't have any Garmin). Probobly i had a problem to open recorded gpx file  in Tcx Converter and wanted to try this setting. Of course i didn't know about this ,,Trick'' you wrote.

My version was 2.10.1 .

Troubles & Questions / Track export problem
« on: March 30, 2013, 21:22:33 »
Some problems with track export.

When i did nothink just press OK after stop recording track. Then in folder ,,export'' i get -see enclose 1 ( no heart rate was recorded i dont know why)

Then i opened this same track in Locus end exported second  time ,change name and ...I get right file with heart rate   see enclose 2.

It was my mistake or Locus mistake???

( In one moment during recording after saving Photo Locus stops

Troubles & Questions / Re: Attitude Autocalibration Barometer

Second - you must "recalibrate" altitude when GPS get right height. Automatic calibration use first height data from GPS, usually this data is incorrect. When you have good GPS signaBl you must turn it off and than on - altitude will recalibrate.

Thx Maksym.I will try ,,second''. I didn't know it is necessary.

@Tommi-When it will be function  ,,SLOPE''  in Locus( i hope )   then you will have to use Barometric Attitude, otherwise measure will be incorrect.

Troubles & Questions / Altitude Autocalibration Barometer
« on: March 24, 2013, 21:21:12 »
I don't know i should write here in ,,Problems'' or in ''Wishlist''. It  is  not a  ''crucial thing''    but maybe some place for improwements in ''algorythm for Baromether autocalibration''.  

I tried several times and only once when the wheather  was ''super excellent'' the attitude   from GPS+autocalibration was ok ( see attachement  1)  in recordered track.But wheather like this we have on 1 for 100 days i think. (If wheather is excellent then pressure is  high and this same attitude lower.)

Otherwise it is always about 40-50 meters to high. Even today, when the wheather ( near Turnov) was also good it was still +30-50 m to high.( see attachement 2)

I also recordered today this same route with TwoNav on  WinCe Gps Unit  ( without Autocalibration ) -screen

 Higher track is recorded by Locus with autocalibration , lower one Track from TwoNav.
Then i compared some points ( for example POLANA JAKUSZYCKA 886 M) with SRTM  and:  Locus shows as i wrote before little 30-40 m to high attitude and Two Nav little to low ---Maybe some compromise

( Sorry i use Xperia Active with built in Baromether)

Wishlist / Power in watt- ( algorytm and ANT)
« on: March 19, 2013, 16:27:05 »
We( cycling enthusiast ) have in Locus : heart rate, cadence.
I think it will be fine to have also POWER in Watt .

 There are 2 ways ( or maybe  more)  to ,,calculate'' this.

1.First -simply by ANT technology. It is the best ( most exactly ) method but also most expensive. Thinking about myself i will never pay 1000 euro for this technology.
2. Second-based on algorytm calculation

I am using this one  http://
with my cycling computer. And i am  pleased with it .

But it is possible to have others algorythm   like simple

Maybe the most interesting one will be

( ,,Similar'' to like Garmin GSC10 which counts Speed and Cadence , this Cycleops heart belt measured Heart rate and ....Power)

I know ,many say: when it goes to power calculation only SRM but for turistic cycling  ( for ex. to see how many watts can i produce on long climb) it is well enough.

How are the difference in Sizes between these ''resolutions''-  It is about megabytes or gigabytes ? ( i am thinking about covering  FULL EUROPA)

Thanks you all very much.

I downloaded new SRTM and it it Ok.

Now i have on this same track  correct attitude  data without ,, holes'' .

I downloaded SRTM from this adress:

My training track -see enclose.

Yes I know- I also  saw many ,,holes'' in other regions - generally in high mountains  ( where there are a lot of ''verticall walls'')

You think Tommy it is a problem with SRTM ? not with Locus?

 Maybe converting ( i mean easilly) better DEM for ex. from  TwoNav or another source  is possible?

Troubles & Questions / SRTM- no attitude in some points
« on: March 14, 2013, 19:42:01 »
What is the best  - ,,landform'' for Locus.

I am using SRTM files with extension hgt ( this same as for Ozi Explorer). I don't know- my problem is becouse  :
a),, SRTM '' are not full ???
b),, It is a problem with Locus ???

What i mean. It is going about ,,DYNAMICAL ATTITUDE''. All screens are from Pic du Midi di Biggore region-Pyrenees. ( but in Alps i saw the same problem)

When i tap a screen normally i see attitude like this or

But sometimes i see ,,0'' like this
The text at the botton (in polish) means ,, For one point it is impossible to corectly calculate attiude''

Normally we doesn't care about this but... when we want to calculate ( or create) route and see Chart, descent and ascent of created route  it can be a little problem.

See this Chart ( with holes) of calculated ( by internet) route
and what's more INFORMATION details see

Total ascent 15000 m.....???? It is a long climb (This is climb to Midi di Biggore  ( Col de Tourmalet is on the road)),  but of course ascent will be less then 2000m not 15000 it is impossible.
The additional  13000m is becouse of points of the road where Locus ( or SRTM) could not calculate attitude ( 53 points)

( For 53 points it was impossible to corectly calculate attitude)

I tried to see the same map in TwoNav with Europa DEM and in this same part of the map i always get ,,normal'' attitude ( no 0) like this

I dont know where is the problem?


Troubles & Questions / Re: Graph(Chart) problems
« on: March 13, 2013, 14:34:58 »
I am sorry  i don't  know why but i didn't see (-) and (+) buttons. Of course it works.

But still i think it is something to prove.
It will be nice to see ''scale'' and ''kilometers'' at the botton of the Chart-Graph. ( like on screen 3 )
When the Chart is ,, narrow'' we don't have this.
Probobly ,,name of our the point on the map'' cover scale.

I don't know -what is more useful : to see scale and km, or to see point name. ( I prefer to see scale and km od course). Maybe possible to see both.  

Screens belov  -the same point, the same mountain- Graph . I made just (+) then(+) to made Graph wider and we see scale and km.But it will be fine to see this on screen nr.1

scrren nr 1
screen nr 2

screen nr 3

All maps are merged automatically together and are used as one big map. You see all map files (real files) in list of maps, but in the end, they work as one.

Yes map set works perfect.
But becouse Locus works also perfect with maps sized ca. 1gb and more  i had little hope  to merge this 08 Krkonose with another maps which cover also larger part of Polish site.
Of course i don't know a Tool to do it( if possible)  but i remember it was possible to do something like that with Ozi maps in MapMerge.

Quote from: "menion"
and maps you see in list ... some of them are free to download, some you have probably as an bonus :)

I don't  know it was a bonus. ( maybe this Single Track map)

On site http:// we can read that it is 550 MB map and when i calculated all maps size  in my Set it is nearly 550 MB.( I thought 190mb for 08Krkonose was a downloading error but now i see the same size)

Finnaly map works Ok in Locus.

I bough this map generally becouse wanted to have ,, winter pole'' on the maps. It looks like ,,xxxxx''

I arlready have few not bad maps like this one from ,,cycloatlas'' or polish topo maps but they are not actually and without this ,, winter pols''.

But the strange thing is that i bought just One Single Map but gets ,, Sets of maps''

I didn't hope to see new ,,Single Tracks'' near Nove Mesto Pod Smrkiem and Swieradow Zdroj but  i have this  ,, overlay'' in my Map set-very good.

Another funny thing: see black dots on image this is ,, Single Track''  but when i extend ZOOM with (+) this Single Track desapire and i can see like this

It looks like Program changed from One Map to another .
Maybe it is possible to merge all this Maps ( overlays) into ,, single One'' ?.

Yes they are free .I copied this maps  directly to Locus/map but....

I saw in Locus /maps new folders like SMARTMAPS ...
I think they were created automatically.

( I forgot one thing. When staring Locus , program is checking maps and Locus gave one ERROR on my 08 Krkonose- most probobly becouse downloading error)

In few hours ( when downloading will be completed i hope ) i should know more.
