Hi guys, give me please some time till the end of the week. I'll then answer all questions. Thanks for understanding.

I've forget to mention, this is enabled for A11+ devices only ... are you trying it on such device?

Beta version: MapGooglePlay_4.5.4.1_1053_beta
- app now automatically create & scan "X/Android/media/" directories for a maps. Give it a try and let me know ...
- you may try to simply import a map by the "Import" function over the app or click on any map file in the file browser and choose a Locus Map. The app should copy the selected file into maps or mapsVector directory and use it. No exact selection for now.

- this is correct, in most cases is done copy & delete, not a direct move. Technical limitation ...
- current there is a small push to move also custom directories at once. Now, with the option to move maps separately to SD card, it brings some new options. Thanks, I'll think about it.
 "Cannot obtain zoom levels" - Petr already wrote that he discuss this with you ...

@Andrew Heard
you were probably looking into the directory with Beta versions. It is correct, there was no Beta version younger the public version.

EDIT: ah @michaelbechtold, I've forget on one important update!!
Start app, long click on the main menu > "Log to file" and enable "Log to file" + choose both "initialize" options. Then stop the app, wait 5+ seconds and start again. In "Locus/logs" will be a log, so send me it please (latest). Thanks

Hello bongo,
sorry for the trouble! The copy took a few hours? Uff.

There should be no problem using the app completely from the SD card, so problems with the geocaching folder are really weird. Or, as Michael wrote, have core app directory in the internal memory and maps on the SD card. This is anyway not a major problem here.

When you open any waypoint, you see a black screen. May you please let it be for a minute or two? You should probably see "Application is not responding" dialog, so just click "Wait". Does the point appear?

May you also send me please your "User ID" from the "About app" screen? I'll first look if there isn't any automatically reported error, thanks.

thanks for the empty files in "data/sensors" - fixed

Who has problems with "not enough space"? This happens during the migration process or just before it even starts as a small warning?

hmm, I think I have an idea. I'll look at it, thanks. Anyway fact that it already works for Michael is interesting, because it should not from my dev point of view  :D

To co píšeš Pepo je ten další problém který máme. Človek který není Android vývojář nemůže vidět rozdíl mezi čtením knihy a čtením mapy. Pro mě ale je to rozdíl obrovský. Jedno jde snadno, druhé vůbec nebo jen velmi těžko s výrazným snížením výkonu.

Soukromá složka na SD kartě je kompletně blokovaná a ten přístup, co ověřovali kolegové, jde jednoduše opravdu jen přes PC. Proč se u tebe nedaří, to po pravdě netuším. Tohle je každopádně něco, na čem budu bohužel muset pálit zbytečně další dny - tedy umožnit nějak rozumně kopírovat mapy do interních složek a nějak s tím prostě rozumně pracovat.

Pokud každopádně něco nejasné, ptejte se, zkusím v případě zájmu vysvětlil některá rozhodnutí detailněji.

A few days later ... version 4.5.4/3.56.3 is just ready to download from Google Play.

Fixed some start performance issues, import/export of GPX, connection to Galaxy Watches, and many more. Sorry for quite a lot of versions, I just prefer a quick fix instead of keeping bugged version public. Like old days :).

We will have to find out...

The latest version has a problem with the memory consumption of points & tracks, so I'm working on it now. The new version will be necessary ...

Once all will be correctly set, we may start some performance tests, like maps or app startup times. Thanks for understanding.

Yes, there may be a few more settings lost (like a global default world map) when moving the map. I never expected that something like this will happen so on a few places in the app are used absolute paths. Sorry ...

SRTM data needs fast access when you use hill-shading. Anyway, truth is that HGT files that are currently used should be cached in memory, so it should be slow only for this first-time app to use it. I'll have to do some benchmarks, but if you do not feel any difference when using hill-shading, no worry, and use it directly from the SD card.

thanks for the summary and help with this complicated topic! The current state is definitely not a final version. We will be updating also based on the problems and support on the help desk!

Difference in performance > as mentioned in second topic - it will need some benchmark to verify the real impact on battery and performance.

It is not for the first time I discuss with someone (not just you  :)) a slower starting time. I'll try to prepare some better logging mechanisms and let you know once it will be done.

it works! Perfect!
1. App should know system settings value so it should correctly restore this value after the screen is turned off. I'll look at it closely, thanks!

2. Hmm I tried it only by gesture and I had a feeling it does not work correctly at all. Thanks for info, so it seems I should spend on this a little more time, good to know. Thanks for the test!

Perfect, glad to read it because with blend mode disabled = it should really be a lot faster! Perfect.

Hmm contour lines theme, nice John!! Isn't possible to use this theme as an overlay without a blend mode? Should be I believe! Blend mode slows down rendering a lot and also on some devices does not work 100% properly :/.

you lost some maps or how should I understand your post?

Hehe, you did not help a lot to be true. Modifying everything is not useful at all.

I'm trying to find better default values at first. If there does not exist any globally usable value, then comes extra settings. Because you are the first who complain about the current style of the gird, there is no need for an extra setting for now. Thanks for understanding.
