Implemented / Re: Please add features...
January 16, 2011, 14:34:33
  one part is completed, try here with latest version viewtopic.php?f=21&t=129 and let me know ...

  second part: I don't have Garmin (first problem) and I don't see any usefulness in this. I'll this request open. Maybe sometime ...
  seems that you're not the only one with this problem (by the comments on market :( ) ...

firstly - you have GPS enabled in system and in other probrams GPS works?
then - if you enable GPS in Locus (by the long click on top gps button or on GPS screen) what happen? Did you see message "GPS enabled" and after a while green circle? (position from wi-fi or cell-id). Try bottom left button to center to GPS position also!

just please try to little experiment and let me know. I have currently no idea what is the problem ...

I have one solution in mind ... wait with deleting maps for a while. it will not be as easy to create for basic users, but I think, it should work ... ;)
  I have discusses this problem on google group here ... ac881a6f15
  and no one know any nice solution. Problem is that I need to know which zooms are available but this cannot be done automatically. Only think that is possible is to set this manually. But I'm not sure if this will not be more confusing.

  but! If you want to use map bigger then 2GB, try to set this map as online storage into 'mapsOnline' folder with correct name. Maybe this should works well.

Troubles & Questions / Re: an "action" related bug

send this in"> mail please. You're probably right, that possible place of problem. I'm fully focused on Locus so I cannot promise I'll fix this immediately, but I'll try as soon as possible :)
hmm now I understand. You're right ... here's the problem :) Thanks, I'll do something with it ...
Information / Re: [POLL] - what to do in 2011!

Hi dibrial,
  hmm navDroid looks fine. Seems that they use vector data so they can compute routing on these data. I'm using typical images, bitmap data, so I have to compute routing data on any server online. If you want to ask if I don't want to use vector data - no. Actually not. Whole system is currently bitmap only!

 about routing (directions) itself. It will just work ... you define one (+ actual gps) - four points and send them on OSM server. Computed route comes back. Offline mode will be, that you can save returned data for later use. You have to count, that Locus is primary map viewer. I'm not and I'll not try to create some navigation software.

did I answered you?
  wait for a while, this works for me well!

do you have in settings enabled Global -> Highlight still enabled -> System settings?

this do things around standby mode of phone!

if you enable gps in Locus and then pres Home (and you're not navigating on any point), gps should turn of! Is this doing to you?

  hmm nice bug isn't it? :)

 can you please send me any simple cartridge with this problem that work on OpenWIG and not in WhereYouGo? thanks
Many of you use Locus for Offline geocaching. It's not primary purpose of this app but it could be useful for this ...

Importing main files
so, importing of Pocket Query is quite straightforward. Just go to Data screen, press bottom import and choose category you want to store data in. Correct icons will be added to data automatically!

Importing waypoints
you have two choices
  • Import with the same way as main file. But this create big data pack of points with same icons and without any information to which cache point belong!
  • Leave file name with *-wpts.gpx name and Locus will take care of it. If you import main file and Locus find waypoint file, it will automatically import and attach correct waypoints to geocaches. When you then show screen of geocache, bottom center button allow you to show all waypoints attached to geocache!
Maybe it's not the best english translation ... Track logger better? it just record points when you're walking or driving with enabled gps ...
Hi to all,
  seems that waiting for new My Tracks release is never ending ...

 ... so, seems that you really want track recording, I created one during today!

There is also missing many features but recording and viewing recorded track is now available!

BUT! I need any feedback from you! I'm personally not using track recording, so I don't know what is most important for that. Help me create simple and useful track recorder. Not any complex as My Tracks and many others is. Try this version, write me mistakes and things you really miss and want!! Exporting feature is prepared but not working. What formats do you like to export? Is important for you to select path of exported data or is enough to export to for example Locus root directory? Write, write, something :) thanks to all ...


19.1.2011 - Locus
Big update ...
  • support for maps bigger then 2GB actually disabled. No simple solution to Hack android device problems with these big files!
  • improved menu on map screen (when you press hardware menu button). There is enough space for new, simple "tools"
  • ability to draw (and save) track manually
  • created categories for tracks (currently only few types ... do you want more? which?), ability to filter them similar to point filter.
  • many fixs with My Maps. Now should work much better!
  • new dialog for creating new maps in My Maps
  • and many more, I don't even know what ... :)

17.1.2011 - Locus
One update after another ...
  • imporvements for SQL maps with TXT file works even on smaller maps if you have any problems or want faster initialization
  • small fix to Locus icon

17.1.2011 - Locus
One nice morning update!
  • added support for unlimited SQL file map size ;) (with some work before fully function to do - read after try to add map - works?)
  • rapidly improved importing of files (KML now support whole range of style tag, GPX, ...)
  • fixed some problems with map edit!
  • added custom filtering of POI's (by icon - usable for imported data, PQ, KML, ...)

16.1.2011 - Locus
Hmm, don't work on saturday and sunday I suggest. But I have to, you're waiting for new versions right? :) so ...
  • improved route record speed and stability. Now do not harm map speed anymore ...
  • added editable style of every single track!!
  • added settings for default track style and also settings for behavior of track record!
  • many fixs and improvements mainly with tracks ... uff

15.1.2011 - Locus
  • fixed stupid crashing mistake during track record
  • added Switzerland Maps+
  • re-writted online map handling. I founded source of OutOfMemory errors during Online maps viewing. But it need some testing, so Online maps may be a little slower now, just test and let me know ...
  • problem with Offline maps bigger then 2GB cannot be solved! It's limitation in Android devices, so offline maps bigger then 2GB aren't supported now!

14.1.2011 - Locus
  • added Google China (doesn't seem to work as have to ... same as MOBAC ... in Peking, around 500 metres out ... what you think?!)
  • added Google Korea maps
  • added ability to export Tracks
  • fixed problem with selection download "By state"
  • founded problem with SQLite maps bigger then cca 1.5GB! I cannot initialize them correctly! Not fixed yet. Currently only solution for me is that all zooms will be opened which means that you'll zoom through all zooms even when no tiles are downloaded ... stupid!
  • fixed some crashs when leaving POI screen too fast :)
nene není, zkus vytvořit malý soubor a jestli ti nepůjde tak mi ho pošli ...
Zdravím, ano obecně by SQLite měl být rychlejší.

Každopádně, pokud jsi mapu nahrál přímo do Locus/maps, tak se ani přidávat nemusí tím spodním tlačítkem. Mapy v maps adresáři se aktualizují a přidávají samy takže po prvním spuštění by měla proběhnout inicializace a mapa by měla být vidět. Není? Tak je někde v appce problém! Jak je ta mapa co jsi vytvořil velká? dala by se někam nahrát abych ji zkusil? Díky
