Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.21.+ ( 1/2024 )

Quote from: Menion on February 19, 2024, 08:54:10The share button in the title of the point returns a different value compared to the bigger "Share" button in the row of buttons. Long-click > share also gives different values and there were some other options. Simply sharing from Google Maps is really complicated and also changing over time.

Anyway, I'm unable to simulate your behavior, hmm. Does this happen with all places?
Ok, weird, I tried to record a screengrab for you to illustrate, and now I can't reproduce it anymore.
I still don't know or see any of the other "Share" options you mention, but I do know that these change all the time, so even our Maps versions might differ.
In any case, as I now can't reproduce, and there always was a workaround (do it a second time), we can dismiss this for now. If I ever find out what really triggers this behaviour, I'll write again... Thx!

weekend, again? Damn :)
At least a bug-fix Beta version on the Drive.
@slarti76
how do you share the location? There are more options and not all may work ...
Are there? I click on a POI in Google Maps, then I see only one "Share" button with the standard "three-dot-two-lines" share icon. I click that, reproducibly first time fails (Locus stopped or not used for long time), second time works.
What other Share options are there?

Problem with sharing location from Google (again):
It works when Locus is already open, but if the sharing triggers a Locus startup, nothing happens (Locus stays in previous location).

Quote from: Menion on December 28, 2023, 08:28:14Anyway, what we discussed is improving sync logic.
Currently, all data needs to be on the device and if "sync" is enabled, all are synced to the web. What we plan (it may change because we mostly discuss it for now), is to offer options like:

- keep folder local, sync (currently all folders)
- keep folder local, does not sync
- local folder data on demand, all on the cloud
Thumbs up to this! That was one of my wishes when the cloud sync was started - would be great to have all tracks in the cloud, but can choose which folders to sync locally. Then e.g. my tab can always have everything, whereas my phone only stores what's currently needed.
Sure, if you want a full non-cloud backup, you still need a device where everything is synced. So this doesn't fulfil all wishes, but I think it would be a huge step forward - selective sync is kind of a must, anyway...

ah!! Thanks for the video. I was talking and checking the behavior of the "Stop" button in the panel (as visible on the screenshot). You were talking about a small button directly on the main map screen.

As I see, the current behavior was implemented at 06/2022! and no complaints since then. Long-press simply calls "Stop" and the recording service takes care. In your case, seems you use auto-save, so the result is quick and correct from my point of view. Do you have some accidental clicks on this button?
Ah, ok - and now I tried long-pressing the button in the sidepanel, and it works as expected.

I could nit-pick that it's two red buttons with different long-press behaviour, but then again one has a square in it, which definitely means "Stop", and the other a colored circle. Let's say it's not 100% perfect, but I don't have a better idea, so let's leave it at that!
Thx for explanantion!

This simply isn't possible  :).

Are we talking about the long press on this "Stop" button? There is a simple method that have to display "Discard" question dialog.
I'll prepare a video...

long-press to cancel recording > there is a confirmation dialog.
Doesn't work for me:
- Long-press when track has 0 or 1 point -> discard without warning (acceptable)
- Long-press for >1 point -> auto-save (without any interaction)

Quote"Preferred folder" > this needs to be set for "Auto-save" to be working. But even if auto-save is disabled, the folder is pre-selected in the "save screen".
Ah, ok, then the folder makes sense, still - didn't realize that. I rest my case ;)

That new "long-press-to-discard-recording" is a nice functionality, but has no security query - I don't think that's good. Could be accidentally triggered...

And another thing about recording profiles, probably not new, but just recently noticed:
There's the settings "Preferred folder" and "Auto-save after stop" - shouldn't the folder setting be grayed out when auto-save is off (and thus positioned below the auto-save slider)?

not exactly overlooked. I wanted to answer later and forget. Thanks for the reminder!
As I see in the code, this was modified at 31. 10. 2022 and it works as it should: the second part of the route should have time of this first trackpoint. Anyway, there is the condition when this is applied: "Created time" of the original route is identical to the first trackpoint. Is this your case? Otherwise app considers the original route time more important than trackpoint times and preserves it.
Thx for the answer, that condition actually makes a lot of sense. And it explains it: I did delete points at the beginning of the track before doing the split - then the condition was not met anymore.

Thinking about it, probably the best solution would be the additional option to sort by "track start date/time". I would even say that in 99% of the cases that's what the user actually wants when selecting "created by". Why would you sort a self-recorded track and an imported track differently, just because the imported track has a later creation date, even if it's chronologically ealier?
Is adding that sort criteria feasible?
Of course, the workaround is to always *first* split a track before doing any other editing - but obviously I hope you agree with me that "Track start time" is a good thing to add :)

Quote from: slarti76 on November 06, 2023, 11:07:12Little weird observation in my recent holidays:
I split a track A into A1 and A2. Then both tracks had the same creation date/time (I think we discussed this a while ago, before that both parts got the current DT as new creation dates). Now when I sort the folder by "Created", it shows
  • A1
  • A2
- correct!

But when I reverse sorting, it still shows
  • A1
  • A2
- not really correct, as the second part of the original track is surely after the first part and thus should be shown before in the reversed list.
I assume, as both tracks have exactly the same created date/time, Locus then reverts to alphabetic sorting as "tie-breaker", which keeps A1 before A2.

Proposal:
As we agree that it's not helpful to set the Created DT of split tracks to the current DT, why not set the DT of the second part to its first trackpoint?
Hi Menion
Don't wanna be annoying, but you answered a lot of posts, but no reaction to this - overlooked, perhaps? Thx!

Yes (search for "split"), we did, you did, I thought it's all sorted 😁.
Yeah, there's always a special case to be overlooked  8)

In the news it says:

"more accurate contour lines – in the new LoMaps we generate more detailed drawn contour lines from 1" height data, while maintaining the volume of map files. We have completed Europe so far, but the machines are running at full speed, so you can look forward to further additions soon."

Does this work for existing (already downloaded) HGT files or do they need to be downloaded again? If so, does Locus do that automatically? Or is it a map feature independent of teh HGT files?
