Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.3.+ ( 28. 7. 2021 )
« on: September 10, 2021, 12:16:04 »
OK, so, a global approach. Thx for implenting the DMs. I think the quick settings is a good place.
Please expose the distance markers to presets.

I wonder why in Josefs screenshot it is "2.0 km", here it is "2 km" - which I prefer.

I think you added a line at the km places on track? It is hardly visible. I am not even sure if there is such lines.

Do you use Lomaps maps? Unfortunately, it doesn't work without them. Must be in the map folder.
Ah, thanks that's the reason. I deleted Lomaps the other day,I always use OAM because MFV4. And if you display offline Lopoints via the eye symbol, poi from both databases are shown, ie many duplicates.

The whole LoPoint system needs an overhaul IMO some day... And the subsystems a) "show n*100 poi as temporary items on map" vs. b) "show some unknown subset of close online/offline LoPoint on map" - for sure are confusing.

I am wondering: is the checkbox in the first screenshot obsolete? IMO it is. It is achieved by the eye symbol, 2nd screenshot.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Questions about POIs

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
« on: August 25, 2021, 19:36:13 »
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

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]
tasker://assistantactions?task=TaskNameHere&par1={mapLat}&par2={mapLon}

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.
https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/tutorials/elevation_gain.html

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.
