Troubles & Questions / Re: Questions about POIs
« on: August 27, 2021, 14:09:07 »
Tip: best zoom system by one finger ... tap > up tap > tap and hold ... now swipe with your finger up and down.
You mean, generally? It's not in Locus, right?

@Freischneider: But less (e)MTBs in the woods would be even better 😁😁👻 Where I was alone 10 years ago, say, on a 15% up slope,  today a family, with their fat uncle and 100 year old granddad overtake me. Nah seriously, it is as it is, we gotta make the best of it. Even though I don't like that development.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Map Gold is too dark

Well the OS is complex, unfortunate problems, where sometimes you find a solution just because you hear of another dev who struggled with the same and luckily found an answer... or his users... it happens. Unfortunate, but this is reality. And please compare with the big company realities. Google. They never answer, they have no changelogs mostly, I wouldn't ever waste time on reporting them anything. Apple. They give you tools which aren't open to do what you need. You have to need what they offer... and look no further.
Let's keep our eyes and ears open, there is no doubt Asamm does the same.

No problem. Offline Geonames is there for you. Unpacked text files go to Locus/data/geonames/
It is a per-country search. So, for Russia, whole Russia, not only Oblast. Kyrillic is included in the ru.txt file. I searched Спасск in my screenshot. HTH

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.3.+ ( 28. 7. 2021 )

Hey, I may be weird or annoying, but this very small thing always confuses me...

I am expecting "Select all" on top - anyone else? It is the most likely thing to do. "Deselect all" is probably rarely or never used...

And in point screen it is at second place, in tracks on third...

Minor, I know 😁

Free chat / Call Tasker Task with parameters
« on: August 20, 2021, 14:20:08 »
Guys, I just learnt, it is possible to call a Tasker task via URL scheme, including parameters (%par1 and %par2 that is).

So we can use that in Locus Quick Bookmarks.

This is awesome, a few of us might have used Tasker Secondary before, an indirect approach without parameters.

Example - see also screenshot:

Code: [Select]

Troubles & Questions / Re: Difference in altitude is not correct
« on: August 09, 2021, 07:16:23 »
Here's a good reading about elevation gain calculation which lets us understand why a) it is not trivial and b) why different services deliver different values.

Best way as a user is to use a consistent data source, consistent usage of flattening/correction... same software when comparing elev. gain.

Oh! Locus and its millions of options 😁 That's the solution for the gps confirmation window, I am not asked any more.

New update from today... clickable currently recorded track - nice, thx!

This is why: On planning, when at home, I add embedded waypoints to planned tracks... Like "you're halfway through". No GPS needed at home!
I think that dialog is useless at that point. At leastvwhen I add a wpt from screen center. And: Locus has enough capability to turn on GPS when really needed (on recording, navigation...)

EDIT: I notice it comes up with this question probably because of the "My location" default.(screenshot) Hmm, I prefer map center mostly...

Seems like Andrew Heard needs an additional option "always hide". Or just behaviour as before. The only person on earth who has not populated both toolbars 😁

Yes I remember the new toolbar was a bit too wide for my taste, but a) no big deal because double tap hiding often and b) Menion insisted (iirc)

I don't know whether it's the latest beta, but a double-tap on the map no longer toggles side panel(s) visibility.
Not a problem here, Huawei Mate 20 X.

Ich merkte an, dass ich das von Joska geschilderte Problem schon irgendwo im Forum las. Ich zog aber in Erwägung, dass dieses gelesene Posting aber auch eines von Joska gewesen sein konnte.

Thx. Super minor - I think the line of the selected trackpoint should look different from the currently selected chart place. Maybe the line of the first one thinner/more transparent. Nitpicking.

Dahinter dürfte stecken, dass Locus bei niedrigem Zoomlevel eine globale Karte anzeigen will. Denn Offlinekarte+Theme ist da meist nicht sinnvoll.

Diese wird definiert in "Einstellungen - Karten - Erweitert - Pre-Load Global Map (also oberste Einstellung)"
Schau mal nach, was Du da hast. Da sind vor allem Online-Maps - und bspw. ohne Internet sieht es dann schlecht aus. Es gibt auch Offlinekarten für diese Zoomlevel, ich habe gerade nicht mehr parat, wir man die einstellt. Gabs bei zum Download. Von einem Forenmitglied hier. Ich schätze, wenn man sie an der richtigen Stelle im Dateisystem ablegt, dann erscheint sie in den Einstellungen.

Wenn hier jemand weiß, ob man den Zoomlevel definieren kann, ab dem Locus zur globalen Karte springt, wäre ich dankbar. Ich meine, da gab es eine Möglichkeit, ich fand es aber nicht mehr. Ich persönlich mag die Hike+Bike von Asamm ganz gerne, möchte aber, dass sie früher erscheint.

Z.B.: Auf die rechte Symbolleiste lange tippen, "Modify Panel" (habe jetzt nur die englische Übersetzung). "+" drücken, Funktion hinzufügen, da wirst Du den Button finden.
Wenn Du diese schwebenden Buttons dann aufgerufen hast, lange auf einen der 8 Buttons tippen, um Änderungen vorzunehmen.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.1.+ ( 4. 5. 2021 )

OSM Template in bookmarks: zoom not working. Correct template should have # before the zoom part. This works:


Now the icons to toggle between track/trackpoint view are at the same place (bottom left) - that's better and more intuitive! thx! Maybe only one split icon would be better, to indicate that this is a toggle. E. g. the trackpoint icon looks like "create a new point".
Also, what do you think about the concept (some apps do it) if you longtap a button, app shows a short info on what the button does.
