Hmm with FIT files it is really a pain to do anything. So the current system is made with the method "try this, try that" and it will be maybe working.
Generally, if something does not work as expected, I need to simulate it. In this case, I need in the best case a file from Locus Map and file how it should look like. So if is possible to supply me something like this, I'll gladly look, where is the difference.
Hello Menion,
I do not usually upload FIT files to Connect, but I send there GPX files exported by Locus, the FIT files are provided directly form my Garmin Forerunner 235.
If you need it I'll try to create a Locus FIT file with HR and a Garmin Fit file from the 235 at the same time so you can compare the results but meanwhile I tried to upload the Locus FIT file to Strava and it worked like a charm. So the issue is from Garmin Connect side, I think they want only special FIT files created from their devices.

Are the FIT files exported from locus compatible with Garmin Connect?
I tried to export from locus to FIT format to uplaod the file to Garmin Connect.
The track was recorded with locus using also the ant+ data from hr of my garmin 235, for this reason I used the FIT format but, Garmin Connect doesn't like it not in the form of activity neither as route.
So I used the gpx 1.1 to include hr data, Connect liked it but HR data were not imported, this is a fault of Garmin because I can see the hr data in the gpx file.

Today I was playing with the locus and ant + sensors to set up Locus for Garmin.
My intent was to clean up the list of unused ant + sensors leaving only the heart rate monitor, but I made a mistake:
I activated the cadence and then removed it.
I didn't notice that when I deleted it it was active, so I also kept the only heart rate monitor sensor in the menu, but Locus was also looking for the cadence I didn't have.
I had to reactivate the cadence sensor visibility, disable it and then remove it from the menu.
I think when removing a sensor from the menu, Locus should disable it by default.

Another little bug, I deleted all useless ant sensors from ant menu, but when I choose the one I need in rec panel, automatic hardware start, they are still all proposed.

Add-ons / Re: Locus Map for Garmin

Hello,
I'm an old Locus user (and beta tester) and I'm happy to see the development of Locus for Garmin.
I have a Samsung A5 2017 and a Gramin Forerunner 235.
As you suggested some post ago I tried this case of use:
track recording and navigation on the phone that receives the heart rate data from the watch and it works.
I think it's not very user friendly but the problem is from Gramin side, I need to go on Garmin options start and stop transmission of heart data if I do not use it for too much time (the smartwatch not the heart  ;D ).

Are the fields of track recording's watch-face customizable?
Now I see TIME - DISTANCE - TIME FROM START - CURRENT ALTITUDE.
For my experience  TIME needs an own watch-face (as other Garmin apps and watch-faces do) and the 4 fields need to be customizable.
How about to choose the first 4 from the config of locus map recording panel ?
In this way every one can choose  the best that fits his habits.
In my case I'd like to see HEART RATE - POSITIVE GAIN instead of TIME and CURRENT ALTITUDE.

Just another suggestion: you did a good job with the data field on the DEVICES watch-face but it's graphically horrible.What about:

Phone ------ Watch
OFF     REC     OFF
OFF     GPS      FIX
62%     BAT      81%

With Phone column withe, middle coloured, Watch column black.
I also suggest a bold font to increase readability.

Good job I think you did a nice app to make our life easier.

Attached two screenshots. Not all street names are so unreadable this is one of the worst example.

@lor74cas @Viajero Perdido
Some of the issues you describe relate to the theme in use rather than the underlying rendering engine. What theme(s) are you using? I'm updating my Voluntary theme to make it work better with the new Locus versions.

I don't know if there are updates after the 4 or minor releases

Graphically the names of the streets are now pleasant, but in practice they are not very so useful. The text is written in too small characters, at least on my device. Sometimes it is just illegible as it is small, I imagine myself outdoors in the hurry to find the correct information I don't think is very user friendly.
The text size is dependent on the zoom level and the width of the road. The street name should have a minimum size in order to be displayed (maybe even protruding from the road limits), the current one is too small or must be dependent on the screen resolution / size.

5% per hour? This is amazing, I want this too :)
(I've usually around 10%)
Ask the developer to reduce it on your phone

Today I recorded a track for less than 2h with last beta, Locus used 10% of battery power, it's the first time I see it so hungry.
In this time Locus worked in background and the phone was untouched in my pocket.

@lor74cas
Anyway, in previous post you wrote that
"today I was fighting with wms layers I did it to show some servicies for italy but when I disabled the last one It never disappears from the map."
If I understand correctly, you disabled WMS map, but it was still visible. So I asked if there are some steps that allows me to simulate this problem because this does not happen to me.
I tried to simulate it again but does not happen anymore sorry I can not reproduce the same case of use.

@lor74cas
WMS map problem: are you able to simulate it? Because when I simply enable one map and then disable it, it works correctly.

The global map became THE ONLY MAP, not just a last. It is the only map that is drawn. And yes, these global maps are not visible in quick map switch. Generally, there should be no reason to offten manually switch map to this global map. Maybe on the sofa when playing/planning, but not in the field.


1st screenshot wms enabled (clouds) over the north Italy map from Locus store and advanced pre fetch globe map disabled

2nd wms enabled but not visible over the same north Italy map also not visible but with advanced pre fetch globe map enabled.

Ok too much travels on the sofa for me in this period

Hello,
today I was fighting with wms layers I did it to show some servicies for italy but when I disabled the last one It never disappears from the map.
I tried to clean all cache in locus without succes.
Attached screenshot

if someone interested i think this wms is an usefull resource:
https://eumetview.eumetsat.int/geoserv/wms?
the layer msg_h3B give us the weather updated every 15 min, this particular layer does not cover the base map and is quite visible.
You can test every available layers in a browser st this link https://eumetview.eumetsat.int/mapviewer/

If you use Setup->Map->Advanced-> GlobeMap (I use the World from locus store)
The globe map became the last layer and you can not see the wms info
Once disabled wms appears

Testing some wms services I found that the world map is never present in the quick map select menu, I think it'd be usefull if it'd always be present. IMHO i think that a local (data on the phone) world map should be the default layer (also for online map), second base map, third wms. World map with the only  option: see me or not.

Hello,
Nothing regarding beta this time, but a general Locus behaviour.
After calculating a a nav route I wanted to delete unwanted advices, I remember there was a way to do it but the itinerary menu can do the job so I finally find the waypoint menu in the route details that do the job. Why don't you unify this menus in the second one?

P.s. I tried to find the navigation related info in knowledge base but the site from mobile did not have any answers it didn't work and is still frozen

Awesome new Beta, because you seem to have fixed the text problem over more than one tile! Haven't seen any more broken text yet!
.3 beta no more broken text, I did not find one anymore.

3.39.3.2 test with truncated label on map.
Moving away the label out of the screen with one finger touch and move,  than moving back, completed the truncated label. No zoom pinch or phisical button involved.
