Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.19.+ ( 9/2023 )

Usage of the space in the route selection dialog
Some options for quick selection of last used profiles? I was already thinking about it, but was not sure how to do it. So maybe later.
Maybe sorting based on usage within each category is enough, so the most often used profile is always most left.
Additionally at top the 3..4 last used profiles can be placed, followed by a divider, then the categories like now.
Just as idea.

With some clever options for sorting and filtering you can nearly meet most todays needs, a lot of modern apps and services fail at this simple fact.

I think as being a selection-dialog a vertical smaller window does not make sense, there might be profiles with a lot of parameters, and a changing dialog-size is of no real help (uncovered map is of no real value), same with another overlay which might be irritating.
As we can see by Luces screenshots the horizontal space might get slightly optimised, sticking to 3 (current state, some space leftover) or 4 icons with text. 5 is quite compact and might not help with thin gloves on or while being in motion (reduced precision) on bike.
Just some thoughts though reg. this.

- access to routing settings > and is it useful at all? I expect, that you want to modify profiles mainly in the route planner. There is no big reason to do this outside of this screen.
Sure, to me it's okay. Maybe some novices might search for it, dunno.
- tested a bit, edit, changing the icon, set: not re-selecting the profile, instead hitting back (sure, nasty move) does not update the big profile-icon. Also the blue icon only gets updated if you switch between profiles.

Really like the new routing-profiles dialog.
I choosed the route planner to basically get to the selection and customisation dialog, it doesn't seem to be reachable via settings AFAICS.

- cycle touring profile: I suggest to add a 'prefer cycle routes' option (parameters). I love using existing routes.

- I created a profile. Its icon doesn't get used as segment-icon, instead it's empty

- I wanted to change the profile-icon. The icon-selection-dialog starts in recently used, which is currently very short of course. 'Default (tracks)' shows all, which is better IMHO. Btw Is the naming intended or by mistake?
Appreciate the step to customize profile-settings/parameters by using UI-controls.
For bicycle-profiles I would love to see a stick-to-cycle-routes option 8)

See attached picture of online-router bicycle-road-profile.
It really puts me on the road, which I know, heavy traffic, somewhere where you don't want to drive. I prefer the given bicycle-lane  ;)  :)
Only choosed it for testing and result with touring-profile was different and less practical route through town, with road it is 99% my preferred route.

btw what do those crosses mean?

Seems like the filter-chain is not yet optimised.

I used some city names for simple search tests.
Was going for 'Gütersloh' and looked for the search-as-you-type-results.
'Güters' (while typing) is tricky as 'Güter' is a german word for cargo and goods, and street is 'Straße' in german, also starting with s - so you will get a lot of 'Güterstraße' of different towns, not that uncommon.
At least no city 'Gütersloh' as top-posititioned suggestion.
Google does different, quite experienced with searches, they classify search requests by types and top-position towns or other popular interests.
Similar to 'Dor' when going for Dortmund or Dorsten.

Maybe you prefer some close-range-experience, nevertheless I sometimes found myself in a situation to quickly look for some locations due to very different reasons. Currently I go with Google maps.

IMHO some category- and some priority-evaluation makes sense as part of the filter-chain (sorting of available results).

I recommend to use and test the search as much as possible.
As user experience it doesn't appear as a very sophisticated result though I would love to give a different feedback.
I also suggest -again- to orientate to very evolved solutions like e.g. G-maps with regard to HMI and result presentation. I could tell a lot, but all is said and the rest might be catched by comparison.
It's not about database - which is understood as not being the plan (and hopeless to reach at all), probably might target sth. more basic and komoot'ish.

Nevertheless, just try and add a town-name as basic location description concatenated with another string of an idea to search for..
(if you only use the kiosk name it will be found as shown, being unique enough).

Another example: search for 'Rewe' you will get results, if you search for 'Bochum Rewe' you get no results. This definitely makes no sense.

Quote from: Andrew Heard on August 03, 2023, 00:56:16...But sharing of existing GMaps POI doesn't work/ has different behavior to 4.17. Now LM4 Search will display the shared link as text, for example, and display "No search results" rather than moving to that point. When I open this example URL in my web browser, it displays the correct POI.
I guess that is about PlaceIDs and requires API-usage, if possible at all.
This can not be simply decoded or parsed like simple MapURLs with lat-lon. Currently only sharing a nearby set marking seems to be of help.

Router Source online
  • with Google I always get a request-error
  • with graphhopper I get this error when end-point is not set at street but at building. Moving it slightly by some meters all is fine. So solvable if you are aware of possible troublemakers. Maybe optimisable.

Thanks Tapio, I will test.
Andrey's Settler theme is really awesome, theme is great and visual pleasuring, xml is very clean and a good starting point.

1st try: NRW West-MSland, maybe some towns should already appear at ZL 11, currently start to appear at 12.
- opening of side panel has a small moment of stuck, not completely smooth
- pic expert settings - value might be strange, don't know. I better leave it like it isYou cannot view this attachment.
the previous point/track visibility toogle was perfect.

Only downside was a state dependent case: visibility state was set to 'not show', and then you decide to enable single points or tracks. Then of course you won't recognise your changes until you decide to toogle the visibility back to 'show'.
Well at least this could be irritating if there's only 1 point or track and you wonder why it can can be seen AND you are missing the current state in map-screen menu.
maybe a rare scenario, though happened to me

Solution could be to toogle visibility  to 'show' in case of 'not show' during event 'enabling points or tracks'. Maybe only with point/track count 1.
I suggest to put the legend button into theme's options dialog. I rarely use it but currently it requires extra thumb selection precision for theme options as right handed person.
