Hmm do not know about it. It works in all cases, no matter which screen is currently active.
@menion I can't find your quote now, a few weeks ago, but when last discussed you said idle time was only related to navigation/ guidance. The "auto screen turn-off" setting is only enabled if one or more of 3 guidance/ navigation checkboxes are also enabled.

- @balloni55: 5 seconds timeout ... hmm so should I remove this function to "Turn of after X seconds of inactivity, except when you view statistics and chart". Gynta any wish? Like list of tracks? Oki, no problem, so better "Turn of after X seconds of inactivity, except when you view statistics and chart or list of tracks". Anyone else? Oki, not possible, sorry. This feature turn of screen when you do nothing with Locus. Increase timeout or tap once per five seconds on display.
Isn't screen idle time only used when navigation/ guidance screen displayed? That's what the setting implies and as previously discussed.

And as I understand with BRouter you don't have the altitude data.
BRouter definitely has altitude data.

Without using a computer I'd like to use Locus Pro or a website tool to create a route from point A to point B with an uphill meter altitude penalty of let's say 200 meters. The app or website should give me the shortest available track (optimized for pedestrians) with these 200 m altitude restrictions and should be importable in the Locus app.

Do you know a solution?
You can upload your own custom profile for routing experiments in The Google group brouter forum is probably a better place to ask this question. Those guys are really great with answers.
+1 to remove guidance & integrate those special settings with navigation, I've always found the difference a little confusing and unnecessary

I remember @Michal's comment in 3.8.0 news and had a laugh:

"The difference between route navigation and guiding is hopefully not necessary to be explained in detail."

@Andrew Heard: hmm then if will be quite a problem with inconsistence. Please also check four last settings directly inside track record profile. Also fix? :). In most cases, probably except "map auto load", "nothing selected" is not visible.
@menion I checked 4 last profile settings - hmmm, your decision, for other complex/ multi-variable settings (eg. Display>Orientation Lock) you have "(blue-summary)". This seems only case of simple variable setting without consistent "(blue-summary)". Minor issue.

Replace "vector" with "offline" is not so simple here
OK - I thought (wrongly) all words "vector" were to be replaced with "offline" as more meaningful to average user (like me). Sorry.

"Auto-start of track recording" - are you sure it do not work? If I select any profile here, it is visible exactly as you wants in brackets
Ah yes - words appear in brackets if one of (foot|cycle|car), but no text in brackets if "No action". That seems inconsistent to me. Opposite example: Map auto-load (No map auto-load|Auto-load...|Auto-load...). Minor suggestion.
Very minor but to be consistent with other settings, the Track Recording > Automatic Start setting could be improved by displaying the current value in brackets () at start of the text - similar to setting above (Side panel)

I think replace "vector" with "offline"?

Hello Rainer,

sorry for a troubles, but what version are you using?
@menion isn't this the bug? the behavior explained by @rainer042 is what I experienced with, but certainly yesterday with 3.9.3 correct behavior was restored, that is - tapping the red stop record button displayed the "save track" dialog, certainly no automatic delete.
3.9.3 track export confirmation message needs fixing:

Tap on the scale. The display cycles through three options.
Thanks John - so many hidden features. I did a search in the manual for "scale" & "ruler" - no useful results I could see. @michal? The ruler is pictured in but no other description.

So any better, more logical and easily findable place? Because even after few years, I have no idea :)
I've never seen mention of this new online dark map before - nice. Does listing inside offline tab makes a bit more sense than online tab?

How is this zoom level and percentage enabled in the ruler?

New Beta version is out. Feel free to test it any report every tiny issue you find? Otherwise probably tomorrow or in Saturday will be published new version on Google Play.

@Andrew Heard: I believe, issue was because of export/import and incorrect times in these files. Try it with next beta version, it should be a lot better.
I don't believe the incorrect times in export files was because of export/import. The track(s) were created with Locus track editor, and the problems happened before any export. Some bug (maybe) related to 2 navpoints at same location/ different trackpoint, and when merging/ splitting tracks, but anyway I haven't been able to reproduce the error this week, so I can only wait for now until/ if it happens again. Thanks.

Is there a way to filter/search for all "offline POI" + ideas + popular? I see 226 results for "offline POI" - 10 pages - too difficult to view but 226 topics suggests lots of interest.
