I think menion did offer a "workaround" at least

Maybe another solution is to have the title go over x2 lines if it runs off the end of the screen?

I dont want the text any smaller personally, as I wouldnt be able to read it :D, but perhaps a option to adjust the font would also work, and I love how it splits into x2 panes when in landscape mode so I personally dont want to lose that either if possible.

Most people surely wouldnt want every detail of the track in the filename itself? so perhaps your the minority (and I guess menion would try to cater for the majority - some methods of fixing your issue would create bigger issues for the rest of us)
Wishlist / maximum gradient and track arrows
October 29, 2013, 23:47:26
Hopefully a easy one for you :)

Can I get "maximum gradient" added into this screen?

I use Locus for proper offroad 4wding, involving very very steep hills sometimes, with Locus at the moment its virtually impossible to figure out the maximum gradient due to the gradient on the "chart" showing as only 1 pixel wide (hard to select the max gradient myself as I keep missing the bit I want to select even if i zoom right in)

Too hard - I have to zoom right in alot to have any chance of selecting the bit I want:

Having a "max gradient" also on the information screen would fix that straight away for me :)

One other small issue (well not really a issue, just a little annoying) Is the track arrows, if I do the same track a few times the arrows all overlap and become illegable - Is there a way to turn track arrows off so I can actually see the track and not just arrows?  Its becomming more and more a issue as I add more and more tracks which start at similar locations (I like to show all my tracks all the time, as its too hard turning them on and off while driving and bouncing around everywhere with a dozen other vehicles following me)

Thanks :)
Cheers mate, that helps get a bit more display back (I also turned off the system panel)
Gday, I noticed a bit of a annoyance while 4wding and using navigation

The screen for the map gets real small due to all the stuff on the screen. I want to turn off stuff which is circled in red here

to regain more screen real estate so I can actually see the map - Perhaps Im missing a option? or perhaps you can add "none" to the drop down list so I can remove the grey bars so I can have more map show?  Im happy with just the arrow on the left thats enough for me (the one that says "30" in my screenshot)

I realise I could turn my phone to portrait mode to regain more of the map showing, but I cant do this as Im also video recording and taking photos while the phone is mounted in landscape mode on my windscreen, and sometimes I need the map more as i divert up tracks which dont exist for navigation so Im really needing a bigger map while driving, I dont need all the extra info

Perhaps I missed a option to turn all that stuff off somewhere?

Thanks mate :)

PS your app did really well on my last weekend away while offroad bush bashing :)  Im VERY impressed
Just a FYI for people

If you add a point, then add a description and you want paragraphs - all you have to do is hit the enter key, you dont need to use the <br> command at all


If you "attach" a photo to a point - it destroys all formatting, and then the <br> commands are required
Good to know it supports HTML tags (I think I can remember some of the tags from when i built basic webpages manually using notepad long ago)

thanks mate :)
Yeah no worries mate, If I hit the issue again I'll let you know what I did for it to happen :)

I ended up deleting the "localised photo" folder, and reimported the photos using the "localised" option again into a newly created folder.

Seems to have fixed the whole issue - heres the same photo from above which I couldnt click on before - after reimporting it, I can click on it ok and load a fullscreen photo no problem :)

Ive been playing with so many options lately I have no idea how I hit the issue to be honest hahahahha, maybe it wont happen again now Im getting more confident using locus :)  (the more I play the more I love this app)
After importing some more photos using the localized photo option the new ones are actually Clickable to make them fullscreen. I might just reimport all the photos as somthing went amis the first time I think with some of them ( I had been playing around I must of clicked somthing it didn't like on some photos in not sure why some won't open ) sorry for the hassle

Figured out how to force paragraphs -

When typing it all out and deciding you want a paragraph, insert this:

<br> <br>

and then just keep typing That will force a paragraph :)

for example

"the quick brown fox<br><br>jumps over the lazy dog"

will show as:

The quick brown fox

jumps over the lazy dog
When I add photos to my locus map ( by clicking on the magnifying glass, and importing localised photos)
they show on the map fine like so:

but If I click on the photo - this comes up, and I cant click anywhere to make the photo fullscreen?

Is it possible to make these kinds of imported localised photos on the map clickable so I can view the photo fullscreen?

If I have a normal style of point, I can edit that to add photos, and I can click the photos to make them open fullscreen, but I cant seem to do it by using the "import localised photo" style way of things

This way I can view fullscreen photos: (but they dont show on the map as a thumbnail)

Maybe Im missing somthing - its not a huge issue though at all - Im still being blown away by how much this great little app can do :)
Wishlist / Paragraphs in descriptions for "points"
October 11, 2013, 04:07:44
I like adding some background information to some of my "points" in the editing side of things

like so:

but when I click the point on the map to bring the information up like so:

It shows like this instead which is kind of hard to read

Just wondering if there is a work around to force a "hard break" or paragraph so it shows with the paragraphs still intact

Its not a big issue for me at all, but perhaps a future update might address it at some stage if possible, just to make it a bit easier to read large blocks of text :)
Wishlist / Re: Locus Map User Manual Download?
October 11, 2013, 00:35:50
thanks druki, that android app looks like a easy way to do it, thanks for the heads up :)

edit> that app works a treat and is dead easy to use - set it for x2 links deep and it seems to get everything required :)

ends up being about 40meg

Im interested in a offline version of the manual also if there is one.

My locus mainly gets used out camping - and I own a 4wd so I camp in the middle of nowhere in the australian bush to get away from everybody else hahahaha

Unfortunatly theres no mobile signals "outback" just ticks, leeches, snakes and dropbears hahahha (dropbears=koala)
Troubles & Questions / Re: Photos displayed on map
October 10, 2013, 09:50:44
Yep I feel dumb now, I had been changing the icons on the photo files themselves and not just the main folder  :-[

I had uploaded these screenshots to explain my issue but I guess they arnt needed now, I will stick them in anyway incase it helps somebody else I guess but feel free to delete the links if it chews bandwidth

I was clicking on the orange line to change the options from inside, found out if I click where the red arrow is, and then click "edit" I can change the zoomed out dot colour without affecting photo thumbnails when zoomed in :)

Sorry for the dumb question - user error it seems! but I figured it out now cheers mate for the heads up :)
Troubles & Questions / Photos displayed on map
October 10, 2013, 06:57:05
If I click on the magnifying glass in locus and scroll right to the bottom and select "localised photo" i can import photos into locus.

When it gets to the "import data" part where I can select which folder to store them in, theres a option written there saying "show on map after import"

If I select "show on map after import" so its ticked, then click on import, thumbnails of the actual photos display on the map itself which is exactly what I want.

But, if I forget to tick "show on map after import" the photos dont show on the map, it just shows a icon that I have to click.

Is there a way to change these ones so they display as a photo thumbnail without having to reimport them and remembering to tick that box? (Ive got hundreds of photos I would have to manually sort through and reselect only some is all if I have to reimport from the start)

And the same issue but another way I hit it was.....
With the photos I remembered to tick the box with and that get shown the way I want on the map...

If I go into data--->points tab, I can click on the folders there which contain my photos - I used the "change icons" selection to try and change the colour of the dot which shows when i zoom right out (the coloured dots replace the photo thumbs when zoomed right out) but now the photos dont show as thumbnails at all on the map even when zooming in again,  and instead show the icon I chose (Im not sure how to change it so its not a icon anymore but a actual photo thumbnail again)

Sorry if Im not making much sense but I hope you know what I mean lols
