I haven't changed the location of locus or it's directories since several updates ago. now, locus complains my filesystem is read only. the only way to fix this is to go into device administrators section and disallow then allow locus. then it will start normally.

this only started happening with the last two updates.


happens anytime I try to export a long track. this track is created from a LOT of tracks that were merged into one (using locus merge function) , ending with 7,500+ miles of tracks to display.

it will crash /hang when trying to display that merged track, or exporting. I can see the statistics, but that is all.

any hints/help ?

(the reason for merging all these tracks is because I'm trying to find a away report ALL of my tracks to get a running total)

Troubles & Questions / Mass export of all tracks?
« on: June 07, 2018, 18:41:22 »
I have a large database (100+mb) of tracks and waypoints. I would love to be able to export ALL of them, from all the sub directories, into similarly named directories. there are times I want to wipe out the database and start new, but expiring all the tracks would be very time consuming.

ohgood, thanks, you are correct with tap on map. Will be fixed in next version.
What you mean by left/right panning? When you "tap and hold" on the map, you are not able to switch to right "statistics" tab?

thanks Menion. no, the statistics still work when swiped left/right to access those panels. it's the small map preview in the screenshot that no longer moves around as it used to. previously it would move left/right and I think up/down when it was dragged. now, no movement happens.

Troubles & Questions / touching map preview no longer works...
« on: June 05, 2018, 15:14:06 »
when viewing a track information, touching the map preview at the top no longer allowed for left/right panning, nor does touching it once return to the main map with track centered as it used to.

this is locus 3.31.0

Troubles & Questions / Re: Older versions, where?
« on: April 10, 2018, 12:16:30 »
hey guys, you really need to rethink the "older versions" thing !   currently the GPS issues are bad, accuracy is gone, turning on/off GPS in locus settings does nothing to the actual GPS usage, and I'm seeing BIG battery drains in both the recent beta and pro versions.

I'm going to have to tell people that "updating is bad, don't do it right now" and that never sounds good. :-(

the Duraforce (4.5"), Duraforce xd (5.7") and Duraforce pro have been very good for me.

here are two mounts I've used on motorcycles doing hard Enduro , that work very very well.

and one that is even better

the Duraforce do not need cases.

The Duraforce reviews on Amazon don't look too good. What's the screen visibility like on sunny days?

It's about average as far as smartphones go. It's NOT a transflective display, so I won't be screaming with high visibility, but I use it on my bicycle and motorcycle in full sunlight without issue. It's tough enough to handle hugging trees several times each weekend on enduro mode, and dropped into a fire (twice!), along with some creek skipping. :-)

Troubles & Questions / Re: Geo tagged photos layer is broken ?

thank you @menion, geotagged photos layer is working nicely again now :-)

I was just prepping a tutorial for how to use it and realized it had issues, so I posted here. Now to get started on that youtube tutorial again :-)

Troubles & Questions / Geo tagged photos layer is broken ?
« on: February 06, 2018, 13:51:03 »
I've added both internal and external dcim directories to locus , but no images are showing when I enable the photo option in layers.

Is it broken in 3.29.1 ?

Thank you !

Troubles & Questions / Re: points near me
« on: January 19, 2018, 11:54:05 »
This is while planning more does, not moving. The buttons touch areas are so small and the border area touch for "more info" surrounds it, so it usually registers a press as "more info" instead of just "view"

Troubles & Questions / points near me
« on: January 14, 2018, 14:25:01 »
using the points near me button, the "turn on eyeball" area of touch is so small that I often instead select the "show info" pane.

could you increase the area of the "turn on eyeball" so that turning on several waypoints was an easier process, and fewer accidental options would happen?

the Duraforce (4.5"), Duraforce xd (5.7") and Duraforce pro have been very good for me.

Troubles & Questions / POI search crash
« on: May 19, 2016, 14:00:09 »
Search POI >> touch poi returned from search >> crash

repeatable always.
'view' POI = no crash
'selecting' POI = crash

most recent locus, android 4.1.2

Wishlist / Re: Star rating for tracks
« on: April 15, 2016, 13:15:57 »
Hi guys,
i would like to suggest to introduce a kind of star rating for stored tracks.
Using over 400 tracks make it difficult to remember good / medium / less good tracks.
Three light yellow stars _behind_ the name of the track would be useful. And the option to set rating in track manager.
Prio: 99


I wanted to ressurect this thread, to bring a couple of things to light:

1- it's a really good idea to save each track in a folder like "TODAY" or "Locus Tracks" or somewhere, and always save them in the same place, for today. That way each track is easy to find, if you want to "sort by distance" in that folder.

2- once the track is saved, and you've decided to edit the track (trim un needed stuff) make a new tracklist (if you don't have one already) that pertains to the activity. I use naming schemes like "hiking with the kids" and then name the particular track "hiking to the falls on orr road" or similar.

the waypoint tracks/routes handling database in locus is FANTASTIC compared to ancient garmins, if you apply a little bit of customization when saving files. exploiting locus abilities while saving those files means you can have matching WAYPOINT and route/ track directories (and groups!) so that finding waypoints and tracks for a journey is very easy.

naming schemes aren't a star system, i know, but it is very easy to make each track memoriable this way.

try it :)
