Thanks Andrew, I've noticed it as well ... just a too late. The little stupid system when I always create notes for Free version and then copy&paste them to Pro version ... and this time I have a) forget to copy and b) forget to manually check if Pro version is generated correctly.
News are on the help desk (link in the first post).

It is necessary to look at this from the point of view of the common user, not us who do some testing. From the user's point, the automatic enabling of GPS makes perfect sense.

So I see here two options.
- disable this automatization in Beta versions as I wrote before
- add extra options into Expert settings like "Enable GPS upon the start of guidance" with "true" by default

Is the second option needed, do you want it?

Disabled GPS during Navigation/guidance? Really useful for home testing ... otherwise? Useless, agree.

Let's try to improve it. The app will automatically enable GPS in the final "Public" version, but I'll keep current behavior in the Beta version for test purposes. Believe it is ok.

Hi balloni, thanks for the feedback.

UTM or any other coordinates system are quite complicated to do. So I have this in the todo list, but ... later ;)

And texts below toolbars. Hmm also quite complicated task ...  :P

Why "block"?? Such feature have to be implemented and somehow logically integrated into the application.

It is definitely a task for a few days. So it is not about blocking ...

I'm worried this won't work with Locus Map.
The problem here is that they need to send generated JSON as a part of the so-called "Intent" object under key "location_intent_extra". This is currently not possible to specify in Locus Map. Once we move to this low-level setup of generated requests (away from simple one Url parameter), the feature will become almost unusable for most users and we then should rename Locus Map to "Locus Tasker Map" :).

Did you try to send basic "geo:lat,lon" intent? Maybe it will be also handled by this weather app.

Sorry, but this won't happen. Intent numbers are based on current existing internal system.
Do you know custom online providers > system for own online maps? Check "zoomPart" value, see? And this is maybe 8 years old system.

Anyway, understand that most of the users are more familiar with values that are currently visible in the top toolbar, so this value is ok.

So for a few users that needs to deal with zoom values over Locus API or intents like you, keep in mind that these values are based on 2^X system, so first zoom level with single 256x256px tile is "8" (2^8 = 256).

Few facts

- LoMaps are not made primarily for an income. Their cost is computed based on hosting and distribution prices + small provision.
- because of this, we do not push users to download/purchase them. They serve as an easy way to get usable maps
- their pricing system is wrong, we know it and it will be changed in Locus Map 4 (not yet 100% decided how)
- offline search works well, but it is based on steps from city > street, not always usable. Current LoPoints are terrible (planned rework during Q2/2020). So I really do not think, that address & points have major effect that LoMaps are used.
- the problem I see is mainly that we did not yet open-sources our tools for creating points and addresses. Which I want to do, just time and priorities complicate it.
Howgh ...

I removed these zoom numbers some time ago for a moment, but on requests, I've added them back.

Seems it is time to remove them completely. "Zoom" as a number is generally nonsense, only what makes sense is how much of the map is visible, so "scale".

Zoom in the top toolbar display "Which map layer is used", not precisely zoom value as you know from OpenStreetmaps. Where the zoom value in this "quick zoom" match scale precisely. So in your case, you have a resolution like when you use any online map at zoom 13, but your vector maps here use data from zoom level 11.

Really really suggest to forget on zoom values and used them only for some bug reports etc. Otherwise, they have no usage mainly in the latest app versions when internally app does not work with zoom values anymore.

Hello,
1) no
2) no

None of these features is available or planned (for now).

Troubles & Questions / Re: Unwanted automatic zoom
« on: November 18, 2019, 08:12:23 »
Hello,
most probably enabled auto-zoom feature (in the app settings > controlling > map screen).
Be aware that it may also be enabled automatically when starting navigation as we wrote about it in this blog post.

@tapio
- weird zoom numbers ... it depends :). Locus on many places uses zoom values shifted by 8 compared to what you probably know.

- thanks for the video. Crazy, never seen something like this. Does it happen only when enabled fullscreen in the app?

- "Interpolators" ... I'll check it.

@bezel
Hello, no need to write sorry, I'll gladly try to help if possible.

Anyway I may hardly check anything here ...

As I wrote the answer to your previous post here ... nothing has changed since that.

Optimizations of how the system tries to save battery are more and more aggressive and such problems will be more frequent I believe. So it is necessary to really check if all optimizations are disabled for tracking with the screen turned off, as we describe here.

I know nothing about your device, but usually, Huawei & Xiaomi are the worst ... check this nice and little sad page. May be helpful.
