This year, I have feeling that I only solve problems, interesting and little frustrating. We tested new login system that is provided by Google itself for almost two months, even published Free version week ago, just for sure, but still some weird problems appear and we are with Petr second day try to find any working solution for something, that clearly does not work on Google server, stupid ... so sorry to you, affected by problems with login to Store :(.

To problems (thanks for reports!)

time estimates will be improved in next version. Expect better times when using online GraphHopper. In case of BRouter, times will be based on your own movement for certain activity (mainly time spend in navigation with certain routing).

clickable buttons in toasts will be fixed in next version, finally. I had to change this system and use special new component which should allow displaying really clickable buttons on all devices.

why you need this confirmation dialog? We removed it as non-standard, useless feature. Does it have any possitive effect on usage of app for You?

New version? Most probably tomorrow ... little risky before the weekend, hope it will be better than this one!

Discussion/New features / Inconsistent user interface
« on: April 26, 2018, 12:04:39 »
I think it is time for some consistency in the user interface, particularly with regard to accepting or cancelling settings screens. I illustrate three different screens in particular.

1. Changing info text for a track.

Do I tap the back arrow, or the SAVE text? Answer, no. Hide the keyboard and there's a SAVE button underneath.

2. Choosing available maps.

Does the X on the top right corner cancel? No, it accepts the settings in the check boxes.

3. Accepting terms of use for a map

No, the orange box is not a confirmation button. That's up in the top corner, where it says CONFIRM. And the X means cancel this time.

Oh Menion, let's get this right!

So far, three trials version, twice walking in the woods, one bike ride, always about one hour. The GPS records absolutely no problem on the Galaxy A3. I confirm the same dashboard problem as Andrew. If a dashboard is displayed on the screen and I choose a different one, the original one will be displayed. Just press the hide / show dashboard button to turn the tan right. The bug was in the previous beta, I forgot to alert.
The problems Condor points to, unconfirmed, on my phone.

CZ: Zatím tři testy verze, dvakrát chůze v lese, jednou jízda na kole, vždy asi jednu hodinu. Záznamy  GPS naprosto bez problémů na Galaxy A3. Potvrzuji stejný problém s dasboardy jako Andrew. Pokud je zobrazen na obrazovce nějaký dashboard a pomocí předvolby zvolím jiný, zůstane zobrazen ten původní. Stačí stisknout tlačítko skrýt/zobrazit dashboard a ukáže se tan správný. Chyba byla i v předchozí BETA, zapomněl jsem upozornit.
Potíže na které poukazuje Condor nepotvrzeny, na mém telefonu.

Discussion/New features / Re: Locus on a bike computer!
« on: March 31, 2018, 08:10:33 »
(sorry for the response delay)

By "locked", I actually just mean that the device comes with nothing that would let you install third party apps: there's no browser or app store preinstalled, and the launcher only has static links.

But thankfully, the device retains developer mode, and sideloading .apks is done the usual way. After installing a custom launcher and basics like a browser, the device functions pretty much like any other Android device.

In addition, there's a bootloader unlock toggle in developer mode, so no exploits are required to root the device (and install play services, etc). I needed to port TWRP to do so, (available here), but that's only a one-time thing.

If you didn't want to root however, you can also install Locus from the Amazon marketplace, which sideloads just fine.

(jajaballard hopefully that's enough info to point you in the right direction--otherwise, the process is standard enough that looking things up on xda will help)

It has always been like that: When I use the "Favourites" function and call Google Maps (App!) with it and it transfers the map center position:

- Google Maps does center its map to the Locus Center position, but does not add its waypoint (that red balloon symbol). Is there something that can be done on Locus side?

Menion, it is a desire for me to thank you and the people involved super super much many mucho for the most important app on my smartphone :D You are such an important part of the outdoor scene. And still lots of potential customers, I hope. Because in the outdoor world there is so many people having no clue about smartphone navigation, it's weird. If I meet people using their smartphones for this, which is rare, they do it on very basic levels.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Size of the characters scale
« on: March 11, 2018, 22:24:53 »
I'll keep this in mind. In config.cfg is already parameter that affect size of main layout on main map screen. So I for sure will support this parameter to affect new layout ( and probably also track editor, route planner, etc.) as well.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Size of the characters scale
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:00:32 »
this is not currently possible.
Anyway to keep things for other users simple, I've added new parameter into config.file (and not directly to Locus settings) ... "map_scale_font_size".
How to:
New version of Locus is planned on next week.

Discussion/New features / Re: What's the "Next Big Thing" in 2018?
« on: February 08, 2018, 17:39:13 »
Good topic :).
Let's discuss basic plans for year 2018

I'll give here, at least, current state in our small team.

Little history:
I had (still have) large hope in live tracking system. Two years ago, I've hired one guy who wrote for me server side solution in nice Clojure language (after more then year of work!). And when first part was finished, he stopped to communicate. Nice .. btw. no one know Clojure :). My mistake ...

In November, some of you probably noticed, that our team had increased to 6 person. Milan > finally developer who should help me with Android. His first task was (still is) Wear add-on. Nice work I think ...
Since January, he work on 1:1 conversion of old Live tracking system to something, we may continue work on it and improve. ETA till middle of March. Then, Milan will work on new UI & various stuff around Live tracking system, also based on feedback. I expect, it will be work on few more months. And then ... sync server? ( most probably ).

Because number of people involved in work on Locus increased and for my suprise, all wants their monthly salary, and also because of number of sold Locus Map is still +- same ( slowly growing ), we needs to invest more work into interesting content, that may bring additional income. Because of this was created and published new Store, because of this I now needs to work on new system for login, new Start screen and third bigger thing will be new Map manager ( which is currently terrible user-experience ).

Most wanted feature: synchronisation. Some users wrote, it's now easy task with some existing stuff. Well, with Petr and Milan, we spend on discussions around this many many hours and we still do not have simple universal solution, that may be done within few weeks. Anyway few ideas are in our heads ... EDIT: and we also have it in list of top priorities!

Except few priorities, that I wrote before and that have to do ( even it's not kind of developement I like ), I really wants to focus in first half of year on:
  • better logging system for geocaching
  • fine-tune route planner
  • fine-tune track editor

And in second half of year
  • new design for main map screen ( close to what is visible in Route planner)
  • new track detail screen with better stats, chart, weather, etc.
  • improve Dashboard system & custom "dashboard" for track screen

My time estimates are really bad, so be aware of it ...
Uff, too long post ... sorry :).

Tiramisù as OpenTopoMap

No routes, only topography, better larger zoom.

On the OAM maps, there are intermittent streams, embankment, ridges, cutlines, etc....

It is recommended to use with the "Hill shading" map is ON - that the similarity is maximized.

There was no purpose to do an exact copy, but to use the best features.

OpenTopoMap ->

Update: ver1.8 (15/02/2018)
- again redrawn the forest, with transparency. Now it is correctly mixed with other fills and objects.
- added or changed: mountain_pass | saddle, natural = stone, tower: communication, volcano, turning_circle, man_made = adit | adit_disused, wells water_well, waterfall, summit: *, fixed reservoir | basin, redrawed bare_rock, completed the color of main roads
- the mapping of the mountainous terrain has been reworked,
- added a layer of "Winter routes", the display - slightly adjusted copy-paste from the built-in theme "Skiing"
adjusted visibility on different zoom levels amenity|waterway / natural = drinking_water|water_point|spring|fountain

Update: ver1.9.2 (15/01/2019)
landuse kindergarten, school...
contour path text rotate_up=false (always uphill")
selection of landuse hospital, residential, adjustment of overlays
slightly thicker contour lines
removed signatures on fence | wall | city_wall
added water sources zoom-min= " 13"
added barrier=turnstile (OAM), name=neighbourhood|quarter
and other things...

Ways other than roads? Not sure I follow you?

I mean by a "way" any OSM way intended for vehicle/horse/pedestrian travelling.
I,.e. tagged by highway=*

By a road I mean such a way, that is - more or less unrestricted - intended primarily or exclusively for cars for regular traffic.  Typically unclassified to motorways, mostly also the service and residential as well. 

In such a sense, tracks, paths, cycleways are not roads.
