Menion, that is not what your users can expect from you.
I am the most outspoken on that one - easy as a Locus user of many years and a comp.science person since 40 years.
But you should be scared of the silent mass who is not even aware of the pot. tsunami hitting them.

As a partial remedy you should establish the possibility to have both /Andoid/data locations used. Following Michal's point, the right approach would be to have the app function and performance critical parts on the internal private location, while the mostly readonly data like maps and SRTM and alike are allowed on external SD private folder as well.
Then capacity INSIDE the Locus only world will not bite - users do not have to buy a bigger phone :-)
My other challenges are not met, but for the mass of users above should be safe - and keep peace in the user base. And Asamm ...

Good luck.
Cheers
Michael

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.4.+ ( 23. 9. 2021+ )

Yes, solved... just some rare collision? with overwrite mode. 1623 exported tracks, 1622 files. Will check on PC (totalcmd) what's the missing file.

The pattern (at least) is 4 very experienced users now report the same issue. That's a good start.
I created a Helpdesk entry for it:

To clarify...  After moving directories, the files left behind in Locus/mapsOnline were named LoMaps_Hike&Bike.*, with sizes 443kb, 340kb, and 32kb.
I believe that was from the map that was shown by default after the move (during the move?), and the smallish file sizes would reflect a single screen of tiles.  I immediately switched back to my usual vector maps and re-selected the theme.

Selecting other online maps afterward does NOT add more files to this folder.

EDIT:  It also seems to have forgotten the selection for a pre-loaded global map.  But I was able to re-select it manually.

Maps / Re: Help with KMZ maps

Only certain files are saved in the Locus folder.
Unfortunately, Locus doesn't write anything about it in the manual.
Only settings and tracks / points (without attachments such as images and voice recordings) are saved.
I recommend doing an automatic backup of the Locus folder yourself. I use Foldersync and Drivesync here. The whole thing is backed up with WLAN in the cloud.
Additionally: Tracks are automatically exported to GDrive when they are saved. So I have it as a single gpx on the PC. With Locus they are only available as a database in the backup.

I don't suggest any changes @menion. I was purely debating pros &  cons of the original post & my experience (pitfalls for young players) from years ago with an old Garmin eTrex before moving to smart(er) devices.

The new separated center button is great, and so is the smooth animation! :)

Nice one about the splitting of centering/rotation button. Easier to understand for newbies. I'd make it the default. Also, with GPS off and in dual button mode, there is no simple way to have the map rotate.

Lovely transition from the rotate/north mode.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.3.+ ( 28. 7. 2021 )

New version ***MapGooglePlay_4.3.3.7_1034_beta***
- major update in work with sensors
Powermeter "Assioma Uno" works fine with BTLE, both values of cadence and power are displayed fine and make sense.
Thanks for your work!

Now those labels are much lovelier IMO! I like it. Also, the labels rotate nicely on map rotate.
Not super important, but the distance labels have no cross marker in the route planner.
I think an independent setting inside the route planner would be useful. I can see myself having 1km markers turned on there all the time (really useful for planning!), while in normal operation I will rarely turn on, just if needed.

To make BT GPS work in the new beta version, it was a different process than before, so I spent time looking for the process.
Anyway, the new beta version is very good, there is nothing wrong with the satellite display

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Map Gold is too dark
« on: September 01, 2021, 17:55:58 »
Thank you for your efforts, Jonny.blue. I had already done exactly these tests. I had installed "Light Control" as the app.
Again, this app is unable to force LM 4 to stay light. But it works with other apps.
In one of my previous posts I said that I wanted to test my daughter-in-law's S 20. Here too, LM 4 darkens.

I am annoyed that some USERS say it is only due to my devices. I claim that if everyone were to test under the same conditions, the problem generally exists with LM 4, otherwise it would be absolutely unlikely that only I would have the problem with the S 6, S 8, S 10, S 20 and S 21 and the Xcover pro even twice (because I replaced the device).

However, I accept that Menion cannot understand the error in the app.

I am now sticking to LM 3 and, as I have already said, I will wait and see if there is anything new on this topic.

Well the OS is complex, unfortunate problems, where sometimes you find a solution just because you hear of another dev who struggled with the same and luckily found an answer... or his users... it happens. Unfortunate, but this is reality. And please compare with the big company realities. Google. They never answer, they have no changelogs mostly, I wouldn't ever waste time on reporting them anything. Apple. They give you tools which aren't open to do what you need. You have to need what they offer... and look no further.
Let's keep our eyes and ears open, there is no doubt Asamm does the same.

Discussion/New features / Re: LoRouter, Brouter
« on: August 23, 2021, 11:00:15 »
So, there is still no answer for the question "BRouter vs LoRoute"
What is benefits from using LoRoute?

I suspecting that LoRoute it's just a marketing wrapper for BRouter, because I don't think that Locus team was did it own worldwide routing maps.

Otherwise, would be good to know the difference. And especially the difference in routing data sources.
The data sources are the same. LoRouter is the BRouter. But it was integrated into the system. No separate app required. Detects if routing data is missing and offers a download. The routing data is automatically updated after a defined interval.
