Troubles & Questions / Re: GPS weird
« on: January 20, 2020, 17:33:45 »
location settings>> GPS ONLY
location settings >> device only

then turn OFF all the power saving features in android settings

turn OFF "battery optimization"in android settings for locus also

if it's set to settings>>> high accuracy 
i will give terrible GPS hops all over the place, partially because it's trying to use cellular/wifi but mostly because the battery saving junk is turning off the GPS antenna and getting bad fixes when starting up again

Troubles & Questions / Re: Importing JPG / PDF as an overlay map
« on: January 08, 2020, 21:37:48 »
if you want to use a PDF as your image source , you'll need to convert it to an JPEG / JPG before you can georeference it. the app i use to do this is called X2IMGPRO. i don't know if it's still available on the android market, but it's easily found online.

this is it's app icon.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Importing JPG / PDF as an overlay map

I've purchased the pro version.
Is it possible to import JPG / PDF as an overlay map?

you can use the "image calibration tool" in locus to georeference any JPG / JPEG to create a referenced map. it outputs a KMZ (google keyhole zipped) file that locus, google maps, google earth, etc can read and display as an overlay.

the process that locus uses to create KMZ's is really really good.

here's an old video i did to show folks how to do it. you may want to pause/rewind it a few times to get the concept down.

Troubles & Questions / constant crashing with geocaching
« on: October 22, 2019, 15:13:08 »
locus is crashing over and over again , whether I'm using guidance/compass to get to a cache or pressing the "nearest waypoints" button. also when i upload logs of caches.

also the GPS controls are all screwed up. turning off the screen is turning off the gps, which is set to stay on for both track recording and guidance. I'm not using any battery saving features in the android battery settings.

this is on three of my devices, running Android 7 and 5
I've uploaded bug reports each time.

Troubles & Questions / 180° weirdness ?
« on: October 16, 2019, 13:36:23 »
scroll around anywhere north/south on N 66.97525°, E 179.99989° , close to 180th and locus gets bogged down, not sure which hemisphere map view to load ?

I have been using Locus to follow tracks for off-road use and it works quite well.
However, with my Garmin, I can create a custom map overlay using the application IMGfromGPX that I can load into my unit and view. In essence, this negates the need for running a track and give me the ability to navigate at any time without losing the map.

Can I load a custom map file like this into Locus? The file type created is a Disk Image File.

there is no need. you can display both a track (GPx) and a route (gpx) at the same time with locus my the map isn't changed by displaying either/both.

bug present in all maps, vector and image based... attached screenshot

Bug still present in .3 release

I've tried several maps, no zoom past .3 mile

thank you !

image to help understand the issue....

the upper WAY; point of the triangle is the normal, non offset hairpin turn

the lower right waypoint of the triangle is where strava aligns it's hairpin turn

Troubles & Questions / map overlay requires offset ? (strava)
« on: May 29, 2019, 15:21:49 »
I'm using strava to find trails, and noticed latest releases have offset strava QUITE a bit.

i used locus and a known hairpin turn to calculate the offset...

strava overlay is 4.87 miles offset south
4.7 miles offset east

i used the locus offset to correct this, but i don't know if it's a locus big or strava trying to prevent usage ;-)

any ideas ?

Troubles & Questions / error covers screen

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map vs Locus Classic ... what's next?
« on: April 29, 2019, 03:23:00 »
i would much rather have a DONATE button included in the current PRO application and free application.

subscriptions always end up having "phone home" issues when i don't have service, or sooner strange error that requires a reinstall/phone home. i simply cannot recommend subscription based applications because of these problems.

i bet you could very easily convince folks to punch the 'donate' button with your usual awesome updates. i know i would.

anyway, that's all the whining i will do.

if you include a DONATE button in pro/classic/whatever, I'll press it, hard.

Troubles & Questions / lost gps - waiting on location 3.37.2
« on: March 28, 2019, 14:31:35 »
I gave 3.37.2 a shot yesterday. it aquired normal location, i started a navigation process (no commands) and started driving. about 1/2 way through the trip locus dropped location and displayed a 'waiting for location' error message for over 5 minutes or so.  i closed the app and tried again, with similar results. at this point i didn't have much time left to test, and needed to get moving, so i restored the 3.72.1 version and it performed fine the rest of the trips for the day.

are there issues with 3.37.2  and location ?

do I need to install 3.37.2 and catch a log for you ?

thanks !

latest update 3.70 does not have this issue anymore.

thank you for the hard work and updates !
