Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.6.+ ( 02/2022 )
February 06, 2022, 12:13:08
LM 4.6.0
reg. Routeplanner:
- after calculation by using the build-in routing is the ETT (estimated travel time) based on the Profile used? Would make sense, but I would prefer using another one if evaluating bike-routes, maybe one of the ETT-list, by default..
- as known 'recalculate all' tells to switch to brouter. Though I want to use graphhopper (online service) which shouldn't be really tricky at least with a simple start-end-route. Trick is to resort via itinerary back and forth, then it works  8)  I suggest to optimize this artificial limitation and the switch-dialog..if really necessary at all, don't know
- doing this I recognised some layout flaws sometimes appearing, see screenshots..route overview at top instead of back-button or not shown at bottom
changes and scoped storage is nothing really "new"
A11 (Android) here, still Locus 4.4
why? .. .. ..too experimental

why you wrote "I am not always able to swipe the list away downside"? It is the most intuitive method how to dismiss bottom panel(s).

@T-mo - sorry, but can you explain further, or annotate a screen cap?
sure,see pics
in case of itinerary, I asked myself how to get back..and was afraid 'top left arrow' exits Route Planner as it mostly does..swiping down isn't always possible, I tried though
Honestly I rarely use rotation..not sure though if with moved map rotation-button switchs itself off after 1x press to align north..I suppose most use-cases would be to check region ahead, view-direction, a bit left and right, maybe temporary change orientation to north,then still on but view orientation changes
I like the new button/rotation setup :D. I understood that the right graphics are in creation, the current dots are only temporary..surely, dots wouldn't be useful at all.

Using RouePlanner and showing itinerary I am not always able to swipe the list away downside and thought better not use the top-left exit-arrow, as it would possibly END Route planner. Yes, it does not and behaves like swiping down and brought me back, hides the itinerary.
Is this also irritating to others?

  • after entering {t} manually yesterday and being astonished to not able to select predefined values, also Michael told about it,I recognised today that there's an Add-Button. A bit off-positioned for my taste, but maybe I'm not aligned :D
  • I once created some profiles for certain activities. Any chance to set or change the activity without creating a new profile? keep in mind: I tend to overlook buttons ;D

@Tapio: is this the new 'automatically loaded address in point detail'?
I have a different result with tracks and trackpoints though. Navigation arrows are followed by 'to end/from start', followed by category location. No address.

I can understand Menions sense for structure and ordering, but yes, space is rare..

LoPoints-experience and the partially illogical logic noted on page 3 and month ago.
Must be more confusing for people not that experienced with LM though.

Thanks for the video ... what's its point?  :D
mostly the crash & situation of no-sensor-setup, possible optimising dialogs
even though sort of lame ;D
beta 1032
- I do not have special Sensors, sorry
- quick walk-through from bottom>top
- LM4 crashes if top-entryis selected (thereforeI start@bottom)
- nice to see max-fullscreen back again - Thanks!
Quote from: freischneider link=topic=7496.msg64864MIUI offers the option of hiding the navigation bar for certain apps. But Locus does not react to this setting.
I suggest to not use those specialties as this might bring nightmares to Menion to deal with all those gimmicks with potential misbehaviours, cornercases, whatever..
 ;D this black top-panel is more a trade-off to real-fullscreen(c). What was the pain about going completely full? Maybe compatability throughout the Android-universe..
Well my system panels have partially transparency, so I can decide dropping bottom and gaining that black top-stripe or having panels with light look+feel. Yeah, isn't having choices the thing about customisation.. :)
@fullscreen: have there been changes?
could swear it was at maximum, even at top above my the screen-edge. Now there's the black bar which has the size of the top-systembar, like your screenie Menion.
Cannot tell if this happened by disabling and enabling the fullscreen-settings or by possible beta-changes.
switched to new beta 1029.
For some 10-seconds I had system buttons panel without left button, only middle and right visible. Wanted to take a screenshot but it changed to the normal panel, usual,correct one at some point.
Nevermind, works like a charm, but maybe it helps
