Troubles & Questions / Offline map database errors ?
« on: October 04, 2015, 18:51:18 »
Yesterday I attempted to switch between 3-4 offline map sources which have worked well in the past. The phone slowed down considerably, and I got the same error "Map blah database problem!" in red, but I couldn't record the exact error problem.

It did this 3-4 times, but after selecting that map again, it corrected , after I rebooted the phone. Thankfully, my track recording wasn't effected by this as I was stationary at the time.

Is there a log I can send you about the problem, or a known way to fix the error in the future ?

thanks :D

OK I understand wanting to keep the focus on hiking/biking. the main reason I've wanted a countdown or count up odometer is fuel range of two stroke bikes. I could see this also being used in electric bicycling, etc

currently I just use the tracking function and display mph/total distance/battery percentage, but a odometer would be nice.

the kids like to see their tracks from walking to/from school everyday too.

anyway, I understand, keep up the good work.

Wishlist / Fuel / Milage Gauge ?
« on: September 09, 2015, 13:15:28 »
I use locus for a lot of off road enduro. It would be great if it were possible to have a fuel gauge, that could be reset each time I filled up again.  What I do now is record from the start, and start a new track with each fillup, and use a custom dashboard to show
Track Distance (full)
GPS coordinates (on one line)

but it would be really nice to have a fuel gauge that showed miles till reserve, or miles covered.

Any interest ? thanks !

I am a long term contributor to OSM, using a Garmin eTrex Legend until four weeks ago, when I discovered Locus Map.  I installed Locus Map Pro and have been impressed beyond words by what I have experienced in this short time.  It has breathed new life into my enthusiasm for OSM.  More than that, though, is the community: I believe a product is enhanced immensely if it has a good following, and forums speak volumes for good or bad.  I feel it should be expressed that your dedication to Locus Map is obvious.  I wish to thank you and gynta for the help you have provided to me over this period; it is rare to find this level of assistance and commitment.  I am so appreciative, I installed Locus Map Pro on my wife's 'phone yesterday.  Following the latest release, it seems an appropriate occasion to thank you both and wish you, menion, a well-deserved holiday!
Please place this post where you think it appropriate.
dang, that's cool !!

congrats locus team, 4.8 star rating on play store!

all we need is more Facebook integration to get to 5 !

(I'm kidding about Facebook, but congratulations just the same)

Navigation & Guidance / navigate route?
« on: May 08, 2015, 21:34:57 »
i thought in the past that locus would start with the beginning of a route? today  i loaded a rope, and tried to navigate to the beginning, but locus is pointing me to almost the end every time?

He already answered!
Thanks for your quick response!
Said that was was missing - let's see....

Here are Klaus' 'secrets'.
Unfortunately it doesn't work so far! Maybe you could test it too...
Seems like locus isn't uploading...
i love gpsies for storing/sharing tracks, and planning routes, it's good stuff. if/when live tracking works with locus i think that would be a great website to collaborate with for the future.

woooooo, someone has been busy!

nice job, and thank you !

I'm also trying to use Locus via the Chrome thing. I'm stuck at the initial setup "locus needs to download extra data, 5Mb". What do I need to put in the ~/Documents/ARC/Locus    directory for it to work  ?

Thanks !

Tools / Live Tracking with Spotwalla - is it possible ?
« on: March 30, 2015, 20:01:29 »
I've been watching BubblerGPS' progress for a little while. It's the application that uplaods current locations to Spotwalla. I've also been watching MapMyTracks progress too. They're working fairly well, and would be a great addition to the functionality of Locus.

The UI for setting up Live Tracking in Oruxmaps is via email, and would really be welcomed (for me) if it were part of Locus setups for Live Tracking.

Would this be possible, or has it been done already and I just need to input server and GET values ?

Thanks ! :)

yesterday, i decided i wanted to track HR, and today, you shared your app. THANKS !

do you have any recommendations for good/cheap HR monitors, and any additional information about whether ANT or bluetooth is better for battery life ?

thanks again, when people write apps, we all LOVE them for it !


1 weird. You tried to restore backups from directory "backup/auto"? Because there should be stored automatic backups (not manual), that have to contains also point/track database.

2 Files only in "backup" directory are manual backups you should do by yourself and there depend if you choose in Locus "Complete backup" or just "Backup settings".

3 Btw. content of backups may be simple check manually. It is simple "zip" file so feel free to open it in any archive tool.

4 Databases for points/tracks are stored in data/database directory.

1 yes, i tried all of the files in /mnt/ext_sdcard/Locus/backups/xxxx   and they all reset the preferences of the application, but the 300 tracks and 3-4000 waypoints were not there. there were SOME tracks and waypoints, but about 10% of what should have been. i thought it was weird too, because I've used that before and it used to work, very well.

2 ok, i'll remember this

3 i'll remember this too

4 thanks ! i finally found this will looking through directories on another phone. i  copied those directories to my day-to-day phone, and BINGO all my tracks (minus a month or so) were back. in the future i will upload my /data/database* to Google Drive on a weekly basis, just in case.

again, thank you very much for the help. i've deleted the old /mnt/sdcard/Locus directory and started fresh with the imported (from other phone) database, and things are good again. it's really nice to know that everything can be transfered so easily, and there are no proprietary formats to slow things down.

soooo, thanks
