I'll think about themes, thanks for feedback.

About labelLayer, I'm aware of it. using Mapsforge MapView component directly is impossible and unwanted task, anyway I'm watching this topic . Result is class that might help here and that will be available in 0.11 ... so we will see.

Locus version? Start point coordinates? Endpoint coordinates? Routing engine? Routing type?

Yes, I understand this problem, it just does not happen on my devices. Will try it next week. We have a our usual, from time to time, company meeting in Prague, so more devices to test :).

excellent description I needed, thanks :).

About themes: Currently, all V3 maps use Locus-MapsForge rendering system, V4+ maps use than MapsForge 0.10.0. So what I may do: allow all V3 and higher themes for V4+ maps oki? I'll look at it.

the mentioned topic is more feature request than some issue in V4 support. Sorry, this does not belong here and sorry second time: this will have to wait a little more.


Oki, so first post updated and list sorted by priorities as I feel it. Seems all should be doable. The major problem will be auto-loading system, but ... maybe not so big.

As I wrote on few places, currently I work on some bigger changes in how app work with maps, so expect during February some highly unstable version for testing, hopefully with some changes from this list :).

Thanks John, appreciate it.

"Device screen scaling": I already read the post from Tobias, but I'm not too clever from this. What is the main issue he tries to describe except lack of interest in compatibility?

"Locus specials": is this something we may consider as a "problem"? I think we should stay with MapsForge V4+ support in 1:1 to original MapsForge library. If there will be any needs for improvements, I should cooperate with MapsForge developers and post my updates directly to MapsForge lib.
So post you mentioned, it is the nice and complete list of changes I made over years into V3 version, changes and improvements that will most probably miss in V4, but it is not a problem.

do not worry, I'll do something with it ... step Tobias made is wanted to be true. I sometimes need some "push" ...

Hi to all at the start of the new year 2019,

more and more (advanced) users complain about little weird support of the latest version of MapsForge maps (V4+) in Locus Map app. So let's move with it?

I would like to ask for help here. First I need to better understand current problems with the support of latest MapsForge lib in Locus Map. From this, I would like to create a list of tasks that need to be done and set priorities. Please be short, be clear (or point me to already existing clear and short post).

I'm sure, that most of info was already wrote somewhere here, but to be true, I'm still confused about this topic. Thanks for understanding and help.

List of current known problems
  • fixed 256x256 tilesize, should scale based on DPI, more info - solved
  • hardcoded usage of themes V3 maps = V3 themes, V4+ maps = V4 themes
  • missing auto-loading
  • problem with hillshading system, more info
  • incorrect redraw of text labels after zoom, more info
  • support for MapsForge POI

But playing with RP I found this little bug:
Create a track from A to B
Insert a point in the middle of second type, the square one.
Look at elevation chart in guide mode at the place of middle point the graph breaks.
If you remove the mid point graph ok.

Another little bug, language change, countdown for restart, nothing happens. Manual restart ok language changed.
One more feedback
- unfortunately, I'm unable to simulate these issues.
Chart: not too serious problem and because I plan to change chart engine, let it be.
Restart: works on two devices I've tried. Anyway, I've increased restart timeout from 4 to 5 seconds, which may help here. Dialog disappears probably after three secs, so just wait a little longer.

Zelené lišta bude opravena hned v další verzi, akorát jsem ji ráno opravil :). Tak snad to pak bude fungovat jak jsi zvyknutý.

Hi all, happy new year ;)

ah, "Quick action menu" ... it is accident that it appear in Beta version :). It is a small secret function for one hardware device. Purpose of this menu is to open it by intent from a hardware controller (on bike/motorcycle) and by direction arrow quickly choose a certain item. Anyway thanks for bug report > fixed.

Search options: in case of geocaching, full-text search checks in "owner", "country", "state" and "short" and "long" descriptions. As I see, there may be a small issue in case-sensitivity (fixed now) so rather check if you use correct letter cases.

Is searching also in logs good idea? Quite a lot of text > may be false positive results + increased search time (maybe a lot).

ah, thanks!

mno pokud kliknu na "zálohovat vše", je vidět dialog s "Pracuji..." takže dokud je vidět tento dialog, záloha probíhá. Pokud se bavíme o automatické záloze, tak ta, pokud zrovna běží, by měla být vidět v notifikačním centru. Jak tedy prosím přesně spouštíš zálohu, ať nasimuluju to samé uz sebe.

koupni prosím sem:
Žádné problémy s výkonem s poslední verzí hlášené nemám, takže to bude spíše nějak globální problém s obsahem.

Hello papab,
how you start your navigation? If you start it directly from "Navigate to" or from "Route planner" functions, the computed track is really computed by these routing systems. Anyway if you start routing on, for example, own recorded track without routing commands, Locus generate these commands based on the shape of the track. Maybe this is your case?

This is correct. Anyway, every unneeded library usually means additional CPU usage & battery usage = really unwanted mainly in case of this app :). I've already removed "Contacts" permission thanks to new login system into Locus Store. Anyway, the number of permissions is same as I see in the mentioned online web page, because we added three new permissions for new Samsung Gear add-on.

Good day Tapio,

rather check latest version:

Facebook tracker was not possible to disable before, but I've found a way so in the latest version, it is already disabled.

Google Analytics is step by step changing to Firebase Analytics, so it will be during 2019 completely removed. So the only tracking system should be "Firebase Analytics", which I hope is safe and secure. It's purpose is to monitor usage of some functions and usage of app.

Wish a good coming year as well ;).
