As I wrote previously "It is possible that restoring backup in LM4 may need to set most of the custom folders (mainly to SD card) again. It is correct.". The setup of folders have to be done manually in every version. The question to me is why you need to restore backups, why you just do not keep Free/Beta/Alpha version installed as is, that's all.

Truncated texts in popups are known to me, but I've just not yet found a working solution :-\

ok I'll set up the folders manually as usual, I'm lazy so I was confident in the restore of the pro backup.

As you can see at this post
we can not have at the same time LM4 and LM-beta we need to choose,  as correctly suggested by balloni55 in the answer.

  • With new version, no more problems with SD
  • Imported the setup backup of pro version in LM4, successfully but the LM4 folders settings has still issues. Attached screenshot
  • The explanation text is truncated. Attached screenshot

LM4 does not like my Locus folders settings so to avoid duplication of maps and srtm I need at every update to set them as in the PRO version. This time I tried to retore the backup and found the bug.

After my last post, I was tired to see in google store update the free(beta) version because I use LM4 and I uninstalled it. Result, no more LM4 and when trying to install it back from the apk it says it does not find my sd card, see attached screenshot.

LocusPro works well, I also attached its settings of folders.

in these quarantine days in which in Italy it is allowed to go out only at a distance of 500 meters from home, I used locus to determine how far I could go. I used the geocaching tool circle. It works perfectly, but eliminating it is not intuitive at all.
"How to remove items drawn by the geocaching tools:

tap the  Hide temp map items button in Map items screen topbar or
long-tap the Data manager button in the Function panel and select Hide temp map items or
add Hide temp map items button directly to your Function panel"

In my opinion, the easiest way would be to have a deactivation button in the same mask where I activated the function.

I tried the new circular automatic track, yes it works but why should I use it for ?

What I need is something that connects last point to start point to create a circular track

The idea to let the user to set up the long click function it's great. All happy.
Found a little bug in manual mode Locus does not draw the line connecting the points.

I do not understand why this option is the top voted "Long click on "Route type": toggle between "manual" and "selected" routing".
"Toggle" function is a shortcut to change the profile to manual and back, it does not to draw directly a manual point.
With the direct manual point (on the + or on the profile icon, does't matter) if you need to concatenate more points you have two options:
1) with few points, use the long touch for each point
2) with a lot of points just toggle to the manual mode as always

With one point, no contest, just one long touch

I think I do not understand because someone else has different needs than me, but I'm curious.

Another way to exit from Locus.

I usually forget to exit locus, but the notify icon remembers me it's there in background.
I'd like to close Locus with a swipe on the notification icon, when no others Locus services are working (Live Tracking / Rec / Nav / Guide ...), I do not know if android permits this use of notifications.

I often need this feature. I like to draw my proposed hiking routes beforehand and many times the paths are either incomplete on the oam maps or fail to join up properly. If I allow the routing engine to compute the leg in that case I get either a ridiculously convoluted route or a failure. I don't like @menion's slightly shorter recompute technique.

I thought @lor74cas  was suggesting:
- long press on "Route type" button adds single "manual line" segment
- another press on "+" button adds current selected "Route type" segment

Yes thank you

- toggle by long click on the "Route type" button? That's it ... easy, quick and allows to insert more than just one manual button. Once done, long-click to continue in automatic routing.

Implemented, nice discussion, thanks.

ok for the button but I think we need something more simple.
A long press to create a line from last point to the new position on the map, like a single/temporary manual mode, no sub-menu to open, just the line to draw at the long touch of the icon. The next point added with the + will be again automatic with the selected profile.
If I need a permanent manual mode, or if I need for more than 1 manual point I'll change the profile as usual.

The long touch is already reserved for alternative ways of point selection, similar/same? to the choice of destination in navigation dialog.

It's true, so what we need it's a new icon in this panel of alternatives for single point manual draw. 2 touches are always better than 5

A suggestion for the planner:
sometimes I need to switch from automatic to manual design because not all tracks are mapped.
To do this I need to touch the "navigation mode" icon select "manual draw" insert the manual point, then go back to "navigation mode" for switching back to "walk" and go on with the track.
My suggestion is: with a long touch of the + icon for the new point activate the manual draw only for that point. One long touch instead of 5.
