Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.13.+ ( 12/2022 )
December 30, 2022, 12:19:03
Quote from: Radim V on December 30, 2022, 10:34:36@lor74cas - this denial of access is due to the access=no and foot=permissive character of a military road. It can be fixed and I make a remark for another round of profiles-fixes. But also this is a good example of a segment, where some kind of warning should be issued anyway. A military road can be closed (at least from OSM point of view) anytime. These warnings are something we started to consider. 
This military road is closed to unauthorized vehicles, access on foot is permitted.
At the time of the former Yugoslavia the border was very controlled, there were many military structures with dedicated access routes. Now the border is almost a memory but the roads and structures have remained. If these roads are not taken into account by the planner then the routes created in these places will not be usable.
I realize that we are in an uncommon situation compared to other places.
Many paths of our mountains are made following the route of the roads of the First World War, now they are also of tourist interest.

However, if these roads marked as military they will not be included in the planner routes and it is a pity.

I think this is the correct interpretation:
access=no (for vehicles)
and foot=permissive
if it was not possible to pass on foot then we would have

I'm not very expert in mapping, I've contributed a few times to OSM, but from what I see the road I've reported has no military tag, only the name indicates that it's a military road:
access no
bicycle permissive
foot permissive
highway unclassified
max speed 50
motor_vehicle permit
name Monte Sabotino military road
surface asphalt
width 2.5

There is a special tag for military zones:
landuse military

Maybe these are the areas that could be left out as currently are from the planner.

I use the pc for convenience and I also do it to have a bigger screen than the phone one, so I suggest inserting an option to hide the top bar that you see in the attachment, which most of the time is a useless waste of space.

Tasker / Location with Locus info
December 03, 2022, 15:26:34
The classic example of automatic sending of sms with tasker, a little more refined and on steroids offered by Locus  ;D

You can transmit all the data available in locus according to the variables exposed thanks to Falco's Locus Tasker plugin, mine is just an idea on which everyone can then adapt their needs

Here is the link to taskernet:

The requester sends a text message with a keyword
The message is controlled by tasker on the recipient's phone, if the requester is authorized and the magic word is correct then it sends the location.

The location is validated based on accuracy, within one minute the location is provided:
accuracy of 25 tested for 30 sec
accuracy of 50 tested for 20 sec
accuracy of 100 tested for 10 sec
total 1 min, otherwise a negative message is sent and only the battery status data is provided.

If locus is recording a track more information is provided.

In addition to tasker to get the additional functions you need: Locus Map Locus Map Tasker Plugin Set up: in the profile LWAY edit the event that triggers the action, set in SENDER who is authorized to ask the location (use the magnifier). You can set multiple users. than edit in the content the magic word, it's not case sensitive, use * before and after. LWAY Locus Where Are You HIAM Here I Am

You can use smart lock with a weareable device. When the two devices are near, no need of pin or fingerprint.

I've been using this method for a while now and find it convenient. Of course there is the hassle of having two devices. In my case it still locks with a fingerprint if you have never used the phone for more than 4 hours.

If you have this feature on your phone, you may be able to pair it with headphones or a heart rate monitor.

the QR contains only the references of lat and lon, inside I do not find any link that could direct the opening with a specific app such as locus. So I believe that the opening happens according to the program you use to scan the QR, if you use goggle (chrome or lens) it will tend to open gmaps.

Yes, this is a straight line, therefore off the trail, and the altitude is calculated.

I played with wms in the attachments on the left 4.8.2 on the right
with the same configuration I was unable to display the same level on both.
I also think that a filter is needed for the levels in the case of this service they are really many and you have to scroll through the list to find the one you want.

On the page for selecting the wms services already available, a filter based on the current position would be required. Services not available for your area are useless.

Thank you for your feedback :). Your idea with possibility of overlay layer with opacity makes sense. We do not have it on our road map for next months. I would recommend / ask you for a favor to create idea on the help desk so others can vote for it and watch progress ;).

I tried to verify the use of the intent for registering a waypoint.
Apart from the fact that you must already have a track recording in progress and this would not be a big obstacle as you should already have one running if you want to record a point, or you could at least start the recording directly by pressing the same button for saving the waypoint itself if it is not active.
The waipoint registration intent works and is precisely the one suggested by tapio, but it has a problem, I can't get the auto save option to work with the direct creation of the intent with tasker's "send intent" and not even using the Falcosc plugin.
So it is always necessary to give the ok to save.
I also saw that it is possible to start the audio recording after the generation of the waypoint inside the locus, but in this case you have to give the input to stop the recording and a new input to save the waypoint.
@menion are there any intent parameters that I can use to prompt locus to record the waipoint, start an audio recording of X seconds and then save automatically?
With the Falcosc plugin, for the name to pass to the waypoint (I use date and time as name) and the start of the audio recording there is no problem.
However, you need the active autosave and the ability to pass the value of X to end the audio recording.

Devices / Re: Locus running on Ticwris Max?

I also agree "No need to excuse yourself Adam" mine was a general thought not referring to your specific case, mine is professional deformation due to 20 years of work in the waste sector.

For my experience to limit battery drain with locus or other navigation app I use airplane mode. If your device does not need any radio connection consider this option to limit battery drain. But if you need to pair it with an external Bluetooth dongle you have no more this option.

Put the Sd into a card reader of a pc and connect the phone with the usb cable.
Than transfer the maps file from the Sd to the phone.
No card reader? Use 2 usb cable for the new and old phone.

as an old hiker I know it's not always good to rely solely on electronic devices. It is often good to have a paper map and a compass. Not only that, sometimes it is nice to be able to print the path you want to do to show it to the other participants also because not everyone is able to use electronic devices. It would be nice to be able to print from the planner: maps, statistical data, points, altimetry with adequate formatting, certainly not the one offered by the browser.

isn't it enough for you to just be able to tap the eye icon to disable lower levels?

No, almost every time I switch from other App to LOCUS, all levels are displayed!
I don't know why, it seems that LOCUS cannot effectively control.
If you are interested, you should find the same situation after you import it.

Many thanks.
There are several things that don't work as well as they should with kml. For example, even if I disable the visibility, the objects remain on the map. Sometimes I have to close and reopen locus to get rid of objects. I noticed that with your earthquake file, as with others that I haven't used for a while, for weather or statshunter.
