Tools / Re: [Tasker] BRouter routing files / Geonames downloader
« on: January 06, 2022, 22:26:11 »
Slightly off-topic sorry, but is separate BRouter app needed any more if all routing is performed with LM4Gold? Can I safely uninstall BRouter?
Yes, I don't have a BRouter app on my new phone.

Cursors / Icons / Voices / [CURSORS] Circle cursors
« on: January 05, 2022, 12:52:38 »
I created this cursor and having been using it for many years. I thought perhaps others might like to use it, so here it is.

the symbols used are:
  - empty red circle when stationary and your position is based on network signal.
  - red circle with small inner circle when stationary and your GPS position is locked.
  - red circle with rotating arrow when you are moving.
  - red cross when you scroll away from your position.
  - simple red/white compass symbol.
  - darkened/smoked field of view overlay is used for the show view option.

See attached preview (note blue dashed outlines are not displayed, just the size/edges of the images).

Themes - Vector maps / Re: Editing theme in desktop
« on: January 04, 2022, 16:17:38 »
Guys I just remembered RouteConverter can show OSM maps and themes. I've just checked OAM v5 and Voluntary theme, it works, see lovely screenshot. Seems like a good way to test themes.

Stuff for this application goes into default dir "%userprofile%\.routeconverter\" - paths can be changed in options.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.5.+ ( 1. 12. 2021+ )
« on: December 26, 2021, 12:43:54 »
Andrew, as visible on the screenshot here: https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7632.msg66285#msg66285 , there is a difference between selected and highlighted maps. It may be united, agree. But for now, the map with the colored background is the one, you see on the right side. Map with the name in highlight color (orange) is the one, currently active.

@tapio
ah thanks. Problematic "line break" on the end of the first line. Fixed

@karlchick
the theme is unzipped to temporary cache if selected, to speed up work with it

@bezel
thanks, I've noticed this error in the automatically reported crashes. I have no idea why this happens but will look at it next few days.

@john_percy & @Andrew Heard
the new Beta version has just been generated. Please long click on the main menu button and enable "log to file" + logging of the "MAPS_CORE category. Try to simulate your issue and send me generated log from the "Locus/logs" directory, thanks!

@Andrew Heard sure I have, for example writing a blog post where I try to sum general info about theme support  ;). Hope you and others find there all answers. If not, I'll update it, of course, just ask, thanks.

Blog post on Medium.

And again, if something regards themes won't work as expected > share theme with me. John & Andrew, I'll prepare a version during next days ...

@Andrew Heard
hmm, this is a nice mystery with your maps :). If you will be interested, I may create a special version with little more logs printed ...

@john_percy
last app version + last Voluntary V5 theme? Really?? Damn, probably version also for you :)

@michaelbechtold
in the link file should be a relative path to any pdf file or just Url to any web address



Any theme or theme feature does not work? Share it with me, thanks ;)

@Andrew: Menion has extended the logging significantly. Long tap on the low left Hamburger menu, tap the logging option and switch on the first 3 of them.
You can see quite a bit yourself what is happening under the cover... And Menion will see even more ;-)

A. Heard, strange, everything works fine here now. Mapsforge V5? Maybe try another map from https://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/misc/openstreetmap/openandromaps//mapsV5/europe/

@menion regards 4.5.5.2_1054: my previous experience with ZIP themes is still the same. The only change in release notes is "loading of... themes with space in the name". None of my 4 ZIP theme files have a space in the name. Using an OAM5 map, none of those 4 ZIP files are listed when tapping "Map Themes", and as shown last time I just get the green message "No map with themes is active".
Same setup here, but they work now as before again. Are the xml files on top level inside the zip?

When I tap the theme icon, a lag of 0.5s is introduced...but not sure here if it was this way before. Edit: nah, it's new I'm pretty sure, because it's mildly annoying, and I noticed annoyance never before there. 😁

I see a problem with zipped themes, thanks. Should be fixed now so I'm going to prepare the version.

@luce, @bezel
sorry, this is quite a useless report. Which existing themes do not work? How should I simulate this problem?

@balloni55
really interesting because in the code, it is ok. It happen to you as well?



Change of "_themes" is not so easy guys. More than 1 mil. of users already use this system, 3rd party web pages that allows downloading map & themes directly relly on this. There will be also a problem with these zipped themes => how to correctly update non-zipped. We may discuss this later, but I do not think it is important to change it, sorry.

Discussion/New features / Re: Android 11+, changes

Summary of the current state ...

So after a push and push on the Google support

- Locus Map 4 passed a request on "All files access" (don't ask me how this is possible, probably some India guy had a bad day). So the latest app on Google Play has temporary!! exception. We have a little more time to prepare better on limited access now.

- Locus Classic (Locus Map Pro) request was declined. Currently we are waiting on another attempt, but as expected, this should not be allowed to such kind of app at all

- latest Locus Map 4 already has enabled support for /sdcard/Android/media/menion.android.locus/maps(Vector) directory, so feel free to try it. Just insert maps there, the app should load them automagically during (re)start.

Feel free to ask if something is not clear.

Beta version 4.5.5.1

Major update on how map handles vector map themes. Sorry, most probably themes setup will reset to you! The app now handles all themes with relative paths. Also it now fully supports themes in the ZIP archive. So if possible, test it, please! If there won't be any problem, it will be preferred method how to distribute themes

@balloni55
weird your double-maps. I've added a small update in the function "get all maps", which should also here eliminate any duplicities, so you will see in the next version.

Presets & themes ... please test it with the new version (rather set theme in presets again), thanks.

@CabrioTourer
From where is your screenshot? If this is a text from the app, then there is a problem with translation.

@Andrew Heard
problem with re-set of custom directory > ah thanks, got it. There was a condition, that in case, the selection is already used (in your case "Custom selection"), click on it do nothing. Fixed.

@slarti76
what you propose is what I wrote about a few months ago > it is the alternative worst case. I may offer a special version out of Google Play, there will currently be a problem with updates, but yes, it is doable. We still do not have result of verification of the Locus Map Pro, so hard to say how this ends :)

@Diddi
Testing POI alert and seems to work correctly. Please double check you have enabled required notification.

Menion, I was wondering:
You're not the first to suffer under Google restrictions. I know quite some apps that offer a "Google-impaired" version on Google Play, and another without those restriction on their website.
I mean, I'm not an expert on Android development, but if I remember correctly, you can request any Android right from the user if the app is sideloaded. So you could tell the user: "Play version only allows to store map and other extra data in internal app dir. If you need to access data stored anywhere on your system, please install the version from the website (sideload): <link here>".
Wouldn't that be a compromise to appease Google and the power users at the same time?

Quickest way is a downgrade to 3.5.5 (2021-09)
https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1U8U1D-NGQ9CAnqXAkleEXi46wH2T7tMR

As you have no time debug.

The 3.5.5 can access all the folders on ext SD.
If the migration has moved some things in the wrong place, use x-plore or Solid Explorer or Total Commander to put them in the right location carefully - or a PC/USB connect.

Good luck. And nice travels.
