I currently use:

xml editing per Notepad++.

a quick and easy wireless-transfer to smartphone can be realised via syncthing.
I use Catfriend1's releases on Android and on Windows for any of my transfers.
After connecting the relevant folders (e.g. share Locus/mapsVector/_themes/XYZ_Theme on syncthing-android and accept on syncthing-windows, then point to your local XYZ_Theme-dev-sync-folder) both get synced. Synchting typically watches for changes, you don't need to interact, you can also set intervalls individually though not needed. Better work with a dedicated folder and have your xml backed up for the intial setup, though conflicts typically gets prompted.

Edit and save xml in Notepad++, the change gets automatically detected and syncing is triggered within 1-5 seconds, or manually trigger by hitting 'rescan' in SyncTrayzor if you need your 1s.
Then simply rechoose your theme in Locus, voila 8)
seems like text-parsing of gpx-import isn't fully working
similar to this behaviour
maybe Tapio's result is also due to this?
Recognised this with or .3, but was not able to compare this to past releases as it was with any vector-map and theme.
    my ideas, personal preferences:

    • LoPoints UI
    optimize layout and appearance, intents + contrast / cards-style, eye-symbols (like points and tracks), sorting (allow manual repositioning and maybe some half-smart-approach based on number of usage, maybe switchable and/or combined), categories (e.g. I potentially only need the 5 ski-sport-POI-groups during winter), the whole UI-experience
    • expert setting: theme-panel (layers)
    available with 1-click at symbol > Map-screen content > theme. Current Map-themes (list, overview) then by using long-press at symbol.
    • Backup
    like you noted sure, as being basic and essential
    • combined search through settings + features
    like search triggers both current searches and combines the results, different symbols and maybe collapsible groups

Optimizations. Honestly I am very happy Locus is already super evolved and powerful. Really like the new and upcoming changes towards MapsForge and themes.
maybe we need backup-presets.. ;D just need to drop this joke

(sure, backup 'settings only' should to be closer to 'full' but without \data\database as some configurations are missing)
Quote from: freischneider on March 01, 2023, 20:14:59do you use OAM ? I also had double points because OAM also places the points database in the automatic DL. You get then LoPoi and OAM Poi displayed. OAM Poi but unfortunately you can not hide. It goes only with database delete. But you have to do that again with every update.
Here the user interface would have to be extended to be able to show and hide OAM Poi.
Oh yes, I do.
But each .map.db-combo in its folder.

I assume 'points around' and eye-symbol are controlling taken db and visibility differently.
Honestly, I don't use LoPoints as the whole UI-experience gives me more stress than something of use.
But LoPoints-rework is already somewhere on 2do IIRC.

Nevertheless, using new MF4-maps and LoPoints-offline and going for 'Points around' and doing this twice seems to give me doubled results, the icons are slightly different with outline and shadow and without.

edit: doubled entries are given if additionally the eye in menu is enabled. Btw would expect to have points not shown at all if eye is disabled
edit2: might be due to other .dB available in other folders

b) When will they be in the store?
AFAIK Menion tried to cover all reg. this in a separate thread
LoMaps + MapsForge V4
See the google-drive-link over there for available maps

- chosed 1 of the linked LoMaps and copied to a dedicated folder inside mapsVector, skipped the poi.db
- offline-theme #4: put theme.xml and the 3 icon-folders to a separate directory and zipped it (compression none, store). Put this zip into mapsVector/_themes/

everything buttersmooth using new LoMap with this MF-theme and also with any other installed theme, no delays, theme-layers and switches all like expected

installed latest beta
all fine and smooth
I am using AFA with maps and themes at
So far only OAM-vector with Elevate-theme, voluntaryUK-theme and activeRT5, and some Mobac-rasters, so quite simple setup

no doubled entries btw

plan is to checkout situation with Lomaps and MF-theme next

Quote from: luce on February 01, 2023, 08:09:09It's your choice to buy a phone with an immature screen technology, it's not Locus' fault.
I remember joeloc's request and remember me thinking 'that's valid point and an useful enhancement, well known downside of static high-contrast pixel-sections'.
It's always easy if you're not (yet) affected, and as a long time Locus user and community member he just wants to communicate his dissatisfaction about this addressed potential issue, which is understandable.
Permutating positions is not a difficult matter, though functionality needs to get coded, tested and maintained.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.13.+ ( 12/2022 )

used todays new Locus 4.13.1

when planning a track and selecting it on the map within the planner, then the track is shown like below
see bottom
Looks like Elevation profile starts appearing a 2nd time, but this is just part of the regular stats pane which slightly pops or moves up, so it's 'Elevation profile' is readable, and due to selecting another segment stats panel pops up, above.
Let me know if I shall create a video.You cannot view this attachment.
Ich vermute Locus setzt die Trigger und nutzt halt zur Ausgabe eben die voice-Datei, genauso wie die tts-Datei zur (Text-To-Speach-)Sprachausgabe benutzt wird.
Letztere ist unter
z.b. de.tts, und kann mit Bedacht angepasst werden (ggf. poi_alert_ oder pass_point).

@Gyntha: habe die de.tts in V9, kann diese in github einpflegen
