I really like the behavior of Point Screen. Move map when opening and closing point screen by swiping.

Hello Menion,

in the new Beta the route planner doesn't work anymore.

Kind regards

Jochen

Surely SQlite will have performance issues above a certain database file size. If the whole /locus/data/database/tracks.db is normally loaded into RAM then there will eventually be an Android file paging/ swap file issue. My tracks.db  is 266MB in size with 3GB internal RAM and I don't experience any performance issues...yet. But clearly there will come a point where the operating system is continually swapping (thrashing) pages between flash & RAM when the ratio becomes too large. I have all my tracks in folders 2021, 2020, 2019... so I'll "archive" some of the older years some time I guess.

I guess coming from a DBase & other database(s) background nearly 40 years ago, I find it a miracle all this stuff works as well as it does. BTW I notice MSDOS DBase still exists - https://dbaseclassic.com - after all this time.

"Dark color mode" for the map just invert map colors, nothing more. What you need is a directly created "Night vector map theme". Not sure if such a theme exists ...

My "OS Map" theme provides both day and night themes. It supports LoMap and both v3 and v4 OAM vector map formats. Link to theme post:

My database is 1.4GB. I still can't see how this would affect changing/deleting a single point of a single track so badly, but I know nothing of SQL, let alone its Android implementations. What I do know though, is that if your tracks where simply a doubly linked list like in the good old days of C programming, Locus would likely be orders of magnitude faster :-). And if Locus used GL or Vulcan or whatever it is these days in Android, I could enable 30.000 tracks instead to 30 and still be 60fps.instead of 1fps on zooming :-))

Only very few of my tracks and points are enabled at any one time. I'd love to see more, but unfortunately Locus also gets unbearably slow on startup and zooming then.

I'll upload my zipped database somewhere and email you a link, menion... if you want to give it a try.

Woo hoo! I love the improvements for dark mode. Now totally usable at night.

I agree the buttons are probably too black now though. Is it possible to use an alpha setting to match the rest of the GUI?

If the intention is to make the the buttons stand out against the bottom bar, perhaps a lighter or different colour (eg red-ish) or less/more alpha...

But thank you again for the dark map background!

Thank you Sir  :)

Than when (after) PASSING that one Point could generate "exit 3".
The advantage is that by the second TTS command,  the display on sequence so is prolonged once, so is valuable for comfortable map overview while  you are touring around that roundabout.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] VanLifeMapV4
« on: January 18, 2021, 09:44:11 »
It is quite a few things:
- I like the colors of internal Locus theme and Mapy.cz and I want these colors for v4 maps.
- I draw fill of all the areas first and afterwards all their outlines so if there is one area over the other I can see at least the outline.
- I add some new patterns for areas and I intend to add more so that the areas are more distinguishable.
- I draw dashed line over the rivers if they are only seasonal.
- I draw the rivers with slightly different color than the reservoirs so you can see the riverbeds as if the reservoir was empty.
- I draw all the poi even if there is no space so they are overlapping but you can see everything without zooming.
- I made different icons for drinkable and not drinkable springs.
- I have a different way to draw hiking and cycling paths and their difficulty (just for hiking for now)
- I can hide all the fill on the areas (background) and use the map as overlap for satelite imaging.
- I have more visible colors for protected areas so I can see clearly where the border of the protected area is.

and possibly more differences :)

Release notes refer to Brouter (internal), as previously discussed. App still says Brouter (inner), which is not good English.

Tools / c-me live tracking
« on: January 03, 2021, 21:43:20 »
It seems google maps has changed something on his API Key system.
So i think here ends the the test period for c-me.
I stopped the development in the test status - years ago.
Now google ends this project too.

I'm sorry for all my loyal users!
Special thanks to "Neoaliphant", one of the first and last power user.
(brexit and now ce-mexit - what a mess)

best regards
 gynta

c-me 2012 - 2021

Maps / Usage = cyclo not English
« on: December 31, 2020, 18:12:36 »
Map usage categories use the word "cyclo" which is not English. How about "cycle" instead?
