Implemented / Re: Possibility to manualy select offline map directory
« on: December 17, 2010, 13:49:06 »
Hi Fuhur,
  I fully understand your reasons! Ability to select another external directory for maps is planned. Wasn't time :)

  currently, online cache directory and whole online system had fully changed (not released yet). Also offline system will be changed and online and offline maps will have same caching file. But you'll still have chance to use external maps and I'll also do possibility to select another map directory as you want.

  So probably not this year :) but at start of next, it'll surely be done!

  nice coming holidays

Information / [POLL] - what to do in 2011!
« on: December 16, 2010, 11:22:56 »
I have created a little poll, that helps to choose next steps for next year. My priorities are clear - Maps, showing, downloading, working with. But next? It's a little bit up to you ... so, vote in poll and write post, if you want to say me something really important ;)

PS: you may vote for three things ...

Implemented / Re: Import GPX track
« on: December 16, 2010, 11:13:41 »
  as I wrote here http://, things around tracks, routing (directions) and similar, are currently on second rail.

But I plan ability to show tracks directly from gpx file or import into database and then show. I plan to do direct integration of MyTracks into Locus, so track manipulation will be required.

Testing / Re: [APP] - version 0.6.15 RC1
« on: December 16, 2010, 11:10:41 »
  about double-click. Scinkk sad that used double-click for zoom-in. That was previous function of double click. I really don't want to add another small button on every panel that allow hiding. Also for zoom you should use bottom buttons or multi-touch. I'm still not sure which is best way of panel hiding. If anyone have any suggestions, let me know. For me, best solution seems to be this double-click type.

slow cache loading?
  maybe takes too long for Hero to load data from cartridge. There aren't any special additional computations, so there's no reason for this popup to be slow. If you mean slow, this mean more then 1 second? If yes, that's bad .. hmm

one thing that I'm interested is what about online map loading. As I tested, this seems to be a little bit slower now. I will probably do some improvements later, but for now, seems ok for you?


Testing / [APP] - version 0.6.15 RC1
« on: December 15, 2010, 17:13:16 »
  • completely new online map caching. now use SqliteDb! Need testing, so tell if you feel any differences! Hope you not and all is fluent as before.
  • icons for not-available caches
  • improved gaocache main screen, hope for better
  • some small improvements
  • new panel hiding behaviour. Now hide after 5 seconds of inactivity on panels. To show, do double-click on map! What you think? I feel it much better then before!

to fully working geocache things, please do new import of your PQ files!

Troubles & Questions / Re: Problem with my Cartridge
« on: December 15, 2010, 11:40:33 »
  thanks for post, I'll look at this, hope during one of next days and let you know. If on openWig your cartridge works, I'm sure that problem in WhereYouGo can be fixed.

Troubles & Questions / [DISCUSSION] About version 6.14 and later...
« on: December 13, 2010, 17:36:13 »
Hi to all,
  I need to have some feedback.

new version 0.6.14 is out, together with previous version, brings lot of new features and I have almost no response from YOU!

so, few questions:
  • hiding panels, are you use this? hide any of panels? timing? fast, slow? tell me ...
  • new geocaching support in 0.6.14. Did you try import some PQ files? Do you feel that this feature is usable? I also need some tips to improve screen with cache details! Don't ask for some online support. I will not do this. For online support use, c:geo or SmartMaps in czech republic. Only online stuff what I'll probably do with geocaching is loading travel bug infos!
  • right quick menu - i'll add later new functions. Main for me is that I have place to add new functions! but what you? do you feel comfortable with right panel?
  • long click feature on map - google street view, add point, quick guiding, anything else is need?

and so on, so tell!

Implemented / Re: Get coordinates from adress
« on: December 13, 2010, 16:13:46 »
OK, so my informations from 15-minutes testing -
  • searching ability of Georg is same as Locus. Use same internal searching method, so "railway station paris" found same location on both programs!
  • user interface of Georg is really ugly. It takes me a lot time to find how whole program work. Hope that Locus is not same. As a developer, I cannot say surely, because it's my child, you know... :)
  • Georg have a lot more functions which you can use to work with points. That's nice when you're ... how to say ... geek? I'm a little but I don't want too complicated program to work with maps. In Locus I prefer less functions but as easy as possible.

So ... verdict - searching work as you need I hope. Your problem with editing coordinates, I'll think about it, but cannot promise. Seems for me as not very usable function when you have ability to long click on map and save point on position which you want!

PS: by all this discussion, I don't want to say, that I don't like new ideas. Whatever useful is possible ;)

Implemented / Re: Get coordinates from adress
« on: December 13, 2010, 14:55:19 »
  you mean - you save point "somewhere" with some description and later you want to set correct coordinates on exact address?? :) it's little weird ... and why you save point on some imaginary coordinates?

 about searching - method in locus is only reverse geocoding. This mean then when you write address and click OK, Locus send request on google server, which find coordinates for this address. Ability to search something like train station is not available. If you know some web site which offer this, I should implement this also ..

Implemented / Re: Export POI
« on: December 12, 2010, 19:30:46 »
určitě, díky za připomenutí :) možnost dostat POIky ven je určitě potřeba. Nemůžu zatím slíbit nějaké datum ale určitě bude!

ENG: sure, it will be!

POI's / [ICONS] custom category icons
« on: December 11, 2010, 17:54:14 »
complete pack of icons from google maps code size here.

download, copy into Locus/icons directory and when creating or editing category icons, choose from spinner.


PS: icons are sorted by name, but it should be really nice to have them sorted by type. It need some prefix. Is here anyone who wants to do this? ;)

hmm, nice work scinkk, thanx (download in third post)

Implemented / Re: Recording track on sd card (GPX file)
« on: December 11, 2010, 07:37:12 »
Hi Peter,
  recording is currently not possible. I expected question on this theme :) I'm still not sure if this feature will be implemented, probably yes, but cannot promise now. For me priority is
  1. work with online maps
  2. work with offline maps
  3. POI handling ...
  4. other things (from wishlist ;) )

so, after I'll be satisfied with first three points, I should start work on something like track record. Hope you enjoy program without that feature!

Information / [MANUAL] - adding custom icons to categories
« on: December 10, 2010, 16:04:52 »
needed version - 0.6.12 and higher

method is very simple. Icons compress with zip compression and whole file copy into Locus/icons directory. In dialog where you select icons, you will have choice which icons (internal Locus or any of your files) you want to show!

size of icons is on you! Suggest sizes around 32x32px or 48x48px.

align of icons is on center of bottom border. I thing that's best and most useful.


Solved / Re: Icons for POIs
« on: December 10, 2010, 06:40:37 »
So you're from Czech, fajn :)
  ok ok, I'll do it :) exchange for support on czech forum is promissing ;)

Implemented / Re: POI's
« on: December 10, 2010, 06:35:58 »
Hi Diamond,
 about custom icons, this will be in any of next releases. I agree that this is really needed :)

 about quick way to some functions - about that I was already thinking. Still not sure if it will be on Locus title or some left/right popup menu, will see but something to quick access, will be done surely. Thanks for pushing me to give this bigger importance!
