Map v4: ok incl. multilanguage, ? symbol in the menu.
Just to confirm the ? symbol.
I'm not too expert in maps to give you the required help.
Just tested a v4 map with elevate 4 theme on my old phone.

For LT 4g 3g 2g doesn't matter, it works because uses just few byte at every update.
@lor74cas - how do you know it is just few bytes at every update? I have monitored the data using the excellent app GlassWire and it showed consistently over many hours ~294KB download/ 86KB upload per hour. This was LT data going up/ down each minute. For me (294+86)/60 = 6KB/minute. Yes, not a lot of data per minute but it appears to keep the phone working far more than simple offline track recording, and my experience is double the battery consumption which on multi day rides I cannot really afford.
Adjust the update frequency in the LT settings to a greater value of seconds so you have less update for hour and less battery consumption.
I use 300 sec for trail running so I have a 5 min update, for my case of use it's enough.
Walking 600 sec it's also a good value.

To minimize battery consumption I intend to block LT most of time; just enable each 30 minutes say. [...] or otherwise I need to incur a large battery hit.
So now your experience is this bad? I have not enough experience with it yet, but I was thinking, there's just some sort of sleep() loop which should not cost much and then a http connect, some data, boom... not much battery impact, I was thinking.
BTW, at least on my device, LTE/4G costs a lot of battery, I always turn it off when hiking.
I use LT and I do not notice so much battery consumption.
I usually downgrade the data connection from 4g to 3g or 2g to save the battery.
The problem is not the type of connection but phone always searching for the best speed so when you are not at top speed the phone searches for a better connection consuming battery charge. Here 4g doesn't have good coverage so I prefer a slower connection.
For LT 4g 3g 2g doesn't matter, it works because uses just few byte at every update.

- date format
Point taken, thank you. We will propose to the designer that we could use "DD MON YYYY hh:mm:ss" with moth name abbreviation.
If you use abbreviation you need to translate them in all languages, what about instead to use dd/mm/yyyy format and add the function of a explanation of the used format with a link on an ( Info link ) or a mouse hovering function over the date?

Also. I am not sure. Maybe stop of recording should not necessarily stop LT.

Tested in my case run rec profile with LT if I  stop recording also LT stops.
If I stop LT the rec continues.
For me it's ok.

Live tracking
In the user data should be useful to include  battery status.
In this way if someone unexpectedly disappear from the map no more answering at the phone we can know that almost sure it's a battery drain and not the worst horror movie our brain can imagine.

GPS tracking ideas:

Allow optional download of gpx. Allow time control on how long positions and GPX are revealed.
Allow to add POI on both sides, so people can show poi, give hints...
+1 good idea, the user icon on the map with a position not refreshed after for example 10 minutes should be surrounded by a red circle, after 30 a black one and at 45 or more disappear from the map. In this way you can immediately know if that position is good.
I think that the icon for safety  reasons should persist for a very long amount of time, also 24h, and be removed only when from locus close a connection message was sent to the server.

LiveTracking

On the website I can choose to follow someone of the the tracked users.
In this way I can see not only the user position, but also the user data.
Position is updated but the data is not.

Usefulness and my acceptance of the locus livetracking would be bigger, if there wasn't wasted space on the target website. I can understand you need to sell Locus client, but still, enthusiasm may not arise from bad websites. As much map space as possible, please! A floating hamburger menu and "buy locus" only inside the menu please.
Also that center/right info extender is too huge.
I'm obviously talking about the smartphone interface.

You must make something really good, because otherwise the Whatsapp+Google maps livetracking is the preferred solutuin for people.
IMO.
Last note: It improved, I have seen it. But needs to be better.
You can slide the menu bar to the top to make disappear the link bar of the browser, but it's not obvious for the user.
I think that all the white space on top and bottom in menu bar can be deleted.

Beta 3.36.2.9 crashes upon application termination. An interesting problem. Beta works seamlessly. But after closing the application with the Back button, an application termination error message will shortly be missed. Tested on Android 5 and 8. I tried sending an error message.
Cz:
Beta 3.36.2.9 havaruje po ukončení aplikace. Zajímavý problém. Beta bez problémů funguje. Ale po zavření aplikace tlačítkem Zpět krátce problikne chybové hlášení o ukončení aplikace. Testováno na Androidu 5 a 8. Zkusil jsem odeslat chybové hlášení.
Confirmed, it's the same with Android 7

In the attachment I post a formula for a self made IBP
Distance in km
Positive Gain m
Terrain (from 1, scale to be defined)
H1 altitude at start m
H2 altitude at end m
bpm optional but usefull for comparison of multiple session on the same track

It's just an idea I did just few tests with my runs

Hello,
today my wife was looking fom my position with locus on his 5.1 androd device.
She was able to follow me all the time, at the end exited locus but live tracking notification was still present. No way to delete it, not with the stop button, not with swipe, not with starting and exiting again form locus.
Just a reboot of the devicee did the trick.

New beta version 3.36.2.1
Import & export of Garmin FIT files
finally? FIT files should be fully supported anyway testing is needed as I'm not yet perfectly familiar with this format.

Looking forward to useful feedback and wish a nice weekend!

tested with fit file from my garmin forerunner 235 all works correctly, good job.
Now I can uninstall gpsbabel from the pc?  ;D

@lorthe 74cas
hmm problems with backup system ... always problematic to simulate & fix. In both app versions, you have completely disabled auto-backup feature? Please check it once more, thanks.
Before auto-backup was enabled, now i stopped it for both version to avoid the issue.
It's strange that today it tried to copy HGT files and why do it now, they were never backup-ed before (fortunately too many MB of data to move).

Today after the phone boot immediately  started a backup on gdrive. But I stopped it because it tried to copy hgt files. This is the 1st time I see such behaviour. I do not know if is due to gdrive, locus or last security phone update. I stopped in beta and pro the autobackup option.
