@Andrew,yes...I have turned off "Address on longtap". Would instantly bind it to a quick action (and then Tasker task) if it was available. And probably let it spit out nicely formatted address, with gmaps URL and Pluscode, all the good stuff.

Tasker / Re: Locus Tasker addon not working
March 09, 2023, 20:17:58
Quote from: Menion on March 09, 2023, 12:46:53Do you think there are exact steps I may try to simulate this issue?
Thanks for the offer. You see, it's solved.

So this was about the numerous places which may restrict Tasker/Locus/TaskerAddon in doing their (inter-app) business.

a) app permissions
b) background running/allow start app from another one (in Huawei that is found under "App-Start")
c) (Vendor) OS sending apps to sleep

a can of worms. SCNR.

Have you tried 3D apps for terrain on a smartphone already? I did, after all wasn't fun to use. I doubt it's worth putting it into Locus.

Andrew raises a good point, being able to better judge the terrains elevation could be improved. The simple grey hill shading isn't helpful enough.

Currently the best way IMO is using colored elevation.


a) This is too hidden in Locus
b) People won't have the necessary cpt files for data/interpolators. Too complicated.
c) It is in need of a better overlay algorithm. We discussed it. See screenshot.

Really useful for planning. I've attached files for 300-900m elevation, if anyone is interested.

I think, Locus could do much more here. The information that is in the cpt files is easy, can be algorithmically generated. It could all be done by Locus internally on the fly, so that on UI side it just offers an easy way to set the currently needed elevation. Like with a slider.
Or what if Locus had a quick toggle for 2-finger pinching? In one mode, zoom map, in the other mode, change base elevation in the colored elevation... Just ideas. Maybe I'm a bit optimistic, but if colored elevation is made easy and well promoted it could be a killer feature and all of you @ Asamm millionaires. Almost.

The Lopoints system of temporary points. Awkward handling, allow predefine sets of categories etc.

@Andrew, I guess Menion messed something up last time. Yes we discussed it, Menion added stuff I suggested (brouter profiles) to the full backup, but accidentally? removed from the config only backup.
How check? Look into the backup zip in <see path in screenshot, Android 10>. Screenshot: data folder inside of zip.

Doch, Du fügst aus einer Kategorie hinzu, bist dann ja aus dem Dialog raus, dann gehst Du wieder rein, usw.

@Menion - Presets aren't part of the "config only" backup - I was shocked and surprised! They absolutely should be in. The config backup is pretty bare-bones. IMO also Brouter profiles should be in. And dashboards. And interpolators.

It's all settings, it's all result of our time investment, it's all small. I think it already was in.

Sorry, habe nicht soviel Zeit. Nein, nicht nur Einstellungen, sondern das Preset-System. Damit kann man eine beliebige Anzahl an Einstellungen mit einem Klick treffen. Also, halte Ausschau nach der Doku zu Presets. EDIT:
Insgesamt würde ich dazu raten, umfangreiche Presets für umfassendere Situationen zu erstellen ("Planung", "Wandern", "MTB"...)

Zur Inspiration ein paar Screenshots.

Das Anwenden von Presets kann dann auch via Tasker geschehen, womit vieles möglich wird (automatisieren, vom Homescreen aus steuern etc.). Nur falls Du Tasker kennst.

Solved  :D
In my relevant presets I had "Always screen on=Disabled"

I noticed the online/offline Lopoints are really small. If things are too small, maybe the elderly amongst us forgot their glasses, we can use Zoom Lock.

Shouldn't the Lopoint vector overlays scale according to the zoom lock? In my screenshot, the zoomlock zoom is at 300%.

Other features / Re: LoMaps + MapsForge V4
March 01, 2023, 15:29:57
I have general questions:

a) Any difference to the available OAM Mapsforge V5 maps?
b) When will they be in the store?
c) Are they still exclusively used for e. g. retrieving the city name (for track naming)?

I noticed having more *.db of the same area (one is from asamm, the other from OAM) is not ideal. When I display Lopints Offline via the "Map-screen content" it displays many points twice because of the two databases.

Troubles & Questions / Pay LM4 with LoCoins
February 27, 2023, 09:07:29

by the end of March I will need a new subscription and my LoCoins stack up. I know "Payment via Locoins" has been worked on, but I do not find anything related in the software. So, will it be possible? How?

Troubles & Questions / Re: Sort results
February 13, 2023, 15:44:12
May I remind you guys kindly about OPs question? 😁

"Is it possible to sort search results of tracks by length and not by distance?"

I think it would be great if we could sort search results, by everything that makes sense. (Length of track, Name, Creation time, Distance from map center etc etc)

I was a bit unclear. Results of course were sorted, but user cannot apply another kind of sorting.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.14.+ ( 1/2023 )
February 12, 2023, 13:16:57
I've read criticism about Locus not supporting rotating text on the map for better readability. Probably a bigger thing, something that has implications on performance. @Menion, are you planning to work on this? I'd love if it would rotate text 180 (unnoticeable) - if necessary. Screenshot.
