Because I'm just leaving on around 8 days and I'm in quite a hurry, I don't want to publish not well tested Beta version on Google Play. So here is Alpha version on own risk. Enjoy it. I'll testing it also during next days, so we should put heads together later ;)

Version should work fine. I'm now using new system for creating Free/Pro/Beta versions, so hope it will really work as Beta. (should be visible in menu > info). Use on your own risk! (and have Locus Pro 3.0.2 as backup).

22.3.2014 - Locus

Please, if anyone has Android 4.4.x with SD card, where this SD card is not writtable, find some time and test how it works now with Locus. Simple test is to create empty dir on card only, another test is dir in internal memory only and in the end two directories at once. Locus should now handle all situations and in case of troubles, display new screen with detail description and hint what to do. Hope it will be clear. It's major problem and I do not have better solution than, if it occur, explain how to solve it.

changes compare to
- a lot of (10+) small or bigger fixes in new Point screen
- fixed problems with using SQLite maps places on read-only SD card

- improved placing of texts for distance/time rings on map
- improved icons for address/contact searching
- fixed some problems with geocaching waypoints (mainly using it's "Final" type)
- added support for export altitude also for KML waypoints
- fixed problem with import of some special extensions in GPX files

9.2.2014 - Locus - RC3

changes compare to

5.2.2014 - Locus - RC2

changes compare to

- improved formatting of UTM coordinates
- fixed small problems in reloading of smartmaps
- and some minor changes based on feedback
- big update of rendering style for Garmin maps
  I've decided to give this format a small chance, so I examine how small library I use works and started chaging rendering system to allows some modification. So forget for now on texts (they're really bad), and focus on style of map itself. If you use IMG maps and will want improve any style, then I need - map (img file) with specific item on map, place where should I see it, and screenshot how it should looklike (for example on garmin device)

- fixed not working Google Places - rewrote to use new Google API
- fixed small problem with moved times in field notes
- fixed problems with loading of multiple waypoints of opencaching caches
- fixed problems with export to Google Earth
- fixed problems in track chart (mainly during track record)
- fixed small problems with compass title
- removed not working Hike&Bike maps from

Also little sorry for a long time without updates. I'm currently mainly working on new screen for Points (merged small dialog on map together with geoaching screen etc.). I expected to make it fully working after few days, but unfortunately it already took me almost 50 hours and it's still not done (what's funny is, that it looks almost same as current screen). Anyway, in testing and also in new market version, will be still old good dialog. I'll publish new testing version with this dialog after new 2.19.0 version ...

Just a small taste ... feedback and ideas (based just on screenshots) are welcome

Navigation & Guidance / Navigation on all tracks
« on: September 03, 2013, 12:47:55 »
I would like to introduce new testing feature - navigation on all tracks, not just the once, created with online service, directly in Locus

How does it work:
1. you need latest test version of Locus
2. simply display track on map, tap on it and under Guide section, will be Navigation test button. Use it
3. locus will generate navigation orders along the track and allow to enable classic voice navigation

Keep in mind: Locus generate Navigation orders offline, by testing changes in angles (course of track) . It's almost same as current system for Guiding with enabled TTS, but with more precise results and much easier to work with

Big thanks:
big thanks belong to Thomas and Willy. They created and tested during a holidays, algorithm for computations of navigation orders. So it was quite easy for me, to just use it, little bit improve and optimize and provide you as a working solution of this, quite a lot, wanted feature

Why this topic
Navigation will not be perfect. It will not also be included in new release version, just in these testings. I would like to discuss about - how it works, what to improve, etc.

Enjoy it

Discussion/New features / Dashboard improvements (planned)
« on: August 28, 2013, 10:38:04 »
Instead of creating private TODO list, I want to share with you list of items that all wants (needs) to add to current dashboard system.

Adding every item is on one side simple, on second side it takes quite a lot of time. So I want to prepare list of all tasks around dashboard, and then later do it all at once.

Dashboard items to add

Discussion/New features / Offline POI database

Feature released in 3.5.0 version of Locus

We've been working on ability to use already available POI data from OSM maps in some better way than now. Currently, only work with OSM POI is that you may see small icons on vector maps ... nice, but...

I'm glad to officially introduce Offline POI database for Locus application.

Keep in mind a few things:
- system is in early beta and final public version is planned on last quarter 2014
- distribution of these database files will be in same way as vector maps, so over Locus store and as simple as possible
- installation will be also easy as vector maps. Currently you have to download and place on correct place files manually
- primarily for this BETA function you need also a open Locus FREE test version
- I want to keep whole system simple. No extra filtering, no extra features. Simple and fast database, nothing more

How to:
- download file from below list
- extract file and place it right to the same place as you vector map. If your file will have exactly same name, it will be used automatically together with vector map. So for example for austria, you should have in the end

Code: [Select]
- locus
  - mapsVector
    - europe
      - austria.poi.db or austria.osm.db

- firstly you need to check if database work. this may be done in:
Menu -> More  -> TESTING FEATURES -> Points of interest

There is also a question, which points include in database. Increasing number of points will slow down whole database, so it make sense, to include only interesting points/tags, not everything. So below is list of requested tags that should be by your opinions in database

missing points:
