Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.20.+ ( 11/2023 )
December 27, 2023, 17:24:33
While this is good news, it does not resolve the dilemma: if you want to have all your track history with you (without sharing it with the world in some online service), you have to swallow enpormous backups in every cycle.
That is something only Menion can fix, right?

Mine has exceeded 1 GB, a real challenge, for backups e.g. and space in general.
I had proposed long time ago to support a second "archive" track DB, that may reside on ext. SD e.g. and will be part of searches, but not part of backups (you do that once to an offline device like OTG USB drive or a PC).
That mechanics should of course include the pruning of the original DB (your point in the post).

PS: der Backup-Folder sollte (im Betrieb) niemals in der privaten Struktur unter /Android/data/... liegen. Denn bei einer eventuellen De-Installation wird der seitens Android zerstört.
Beim S22 gibt es keine externe SD mehr, aber die Backups funktionieren auch mit Foldern auf der oberen Ebene (haben also nicht die Restriktion auf /Android/data).

Bei Neigungswinkel könnten die Leute an ihr Smartphone denken.

NeigungsWINKEL halte ich auch für problematisch.
NeigungsRICHTUNG war der Vorschlag, den Wolfgang genommen hat.

Das habe ich bei www.arcgis.com gefunden als Definition:

This map provides a colorized representation of aspect, generated dynamically using the server-side aspect function on the Terrain service. The orientation of the downward sloping terrain (0° – 360°) is indicated by different colors, rotating from green (North) to blue (East), to magenta (South) to orange (West).  Flat areas having no down slope direction are given a value of 361° and rendered as gray. This service can be used for visualization or analysis.

"Neigungsrichtung" ist im Moment das einzige deutsche Wort das mir dazu einfällt.

Schöne Grüße

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.19.+ ( 9/2023 )

@Menion: re. "@michaelbechtold Can't simulate any problem with overlay. What map should I use for testing, is there anywhere available for download?"
My bad - apologies! When trying to find the smallest possible map combination (world plus overlay) for your reproduction, I immediatley came across an overlay that worked perfectly fine on my device. Next step was to check the Europe overlay (highest resolution (png) private version) - which was missing ZL 12 entirely :-((
Hence Locus did fill in the vector base map - as expected.
Filling ZL 12 now into that special map :-)
Cheers
Michael

No problem.
Where I'm scratching my head is: the painful restrictions by Google for the file system access do exist since Android 11. Hence, if you came from Android 11+ and it worked before until recently (upgrade to 14): what was special about your Android 14 upgrade? HHas the device been wiped on the way to Android 14?
If not wiped, then you can try x-plore or Total Commander to get access to the private data structures where your data should be residing still. But then, on the other hand, also Locus should work seamlessly as the structure would not have changed.
I.e. still some digging to find essential facts ...

The contour lines mentioned in the news are embedded into the .map files. And display (or not) is controlled by the theme.
The hgt files are optional and allow the dynamic elevation Feature.

I'm using x-plore, grant access as requested, and can read/write from/to /Android/data, even on Android 13, Sept. security level (tested this morning). And even on EXT SD/Android/data

Exit Locus with or without pause does the job, as long as you keep the recording alive (do not touch the upper part of the Exit window!).
Just tested on LM3 and LM4.

Until then, we didn't removed old offline address and POI searches. They are still there in its current old-school form. With those the app for sure would not be returning results from countries of which it hasn't downloaded map.

As a Computer Scientist and IT professional since more than 40 years I appreciate that your roadmap is havy lifting. But by the same token I can confirm that you and your search team completely fail re. rule #1: "Do not screw your customers!"
You are "proud" to not have removed offline POI and address search? Well, removing the last straw would have been complete suicide.
Keeping Google based search in its place as it worked for 10 years, alongside your new search, would have been professional. You would get feedback from the geeks who dare the new stuff, while offering propoer search results for all others, while you do your homework for step #2 and #3.
And if there should be pride and emotions in the way of doing that: both do not pay your bills. Be smart instead.

I think it is time for a drastic correction of approach here: whatever you do for iOS should not screw the 100000s of users from whom you make your living.
As long as the new search function is not professional, give the Android users back the Google based search.
Equal functionality is not a valid argument against this request, as the iOS version will lack essentials for years to come anyway.
At least give the existing and fully functional Google based search as an option to your (Android) users, PLEASE!
