The search feature in settings is wonderful.
It's language dependent so in my case the search is in italian, that's why I was not able to find "live tracking"  ;D
But my mistake remembers me that today we often use english words for concepts that are translated in local language. "Display" is used in italian but we have the word "schermo" to represent it, so "live tracking" in locus is translated into "localizzazione in tempo reale" (I think It is a translation of mine), for this reason, I think that search feature must look for local language but also english.

Experts and novices alike will always suffer from changes, yet changes are key to improvements and progress.
Hence - AGAIN - my advise to spend energy into a 21st century help and function (*) search capability. Android settings in many new devices deliver that: you type a word about what you want to do and get a number of matching functions/settings at your fingertip.
That does not address the ongoing UI discussion, I know. But the overwhelming (yet USEFUL!!!) settings have been a reported pain since years.
(*) each function and setting needs to have a number of keywords and synonyms associated. In the selected language and always plus English.
I wrote the same a lot of time ago +1

I also include a preview of what the screen might look like when the GPS and Record buttons are combined. See my previous post.
And what about using the notification system of main button to show the recording status?
Like a blinking red R on top of other notifications. And when the R is there the button should show the rec panel with a right slide.

No we can not move out of city boundaries without a good reason (work, medicine, food).
A lot of work activities are closed, in my case I work from another site were I'm alone or at home.
We can go out for light sport activities that can not cause a possible injury to call an ambulance (they are all too occupied with covid19).
It's hard to explain to my daughter: no school, no gym, no friends. Just our garden and we are lucky to have one where play.
Our family is suffering more because we use to go out every time we can, it's out there we use locus.
We are not addicted to PlayStation, tablet, and so on, but today for the first time I set up an old smartphone with a videogame for my daughter when she completed all the homeworks.
We are all afraid for our elderlies.
Other countries closed their boundaries with Italy, I live near Slovenia and it seems to be back at the time of old Yugoslavia.
When I go out for a run usually I go at a bycicle path in Slovenia, now I can't, seeing the border fence closed again it's a knife in the heart.
I attached 2 images of the borders and the one where you can see there is noone out there.
Good luck to all countries

In the route planner I agree with another user who wrote about insert the points in the graph.

When showing the detail of the points, there is no reason to see the the graph for each segment because every graph has its own scale and you can not compare the segments, so I disabled this function.

In the attached mockup, I suggest a better use of the point detail panel:
  • When enabled the top should be hidden
  • At the bottom show the whole altimetry graph with the reference of points
  • Highlight in the graph the selected segment
  • Highlight in the map the segment centering and zooming at the top

The REC button still overlaps.

Now, here in Italy we can just play with the planner waiting for the end of this nightmare.

if the main menu appears sliding from bottom and the rec from the right, I suggest to use a graphics that explain this. Also the action to open both should use the sliding.
When recording  change the "on screen" button in red and add the sliding symbol.
Sliding you can activate the rec panel, with a touch the "on screen" panel as usual.

Sliding from bottom of the main menu, at first you can have the custom buttons, with another all the others functions or, just an other idea, touching for the custom and sliding for all the function.

Look at the attached file, yes I did it, maybe my daughter would have done better with her colored pencils

It's far from clear that Settings is to be found not be tapping More Functions (picture 1) but by sliding the pop up menu further up (picture 2).

I think the "More function" button should be an icon to slide the bottom menu with the section Store, info, settings first and than all the more functions.

First impression:

I use auto-hide for all panels, I like the full map, I do not like too much the button of menu visible while all is hided, see attachment.
For my case of use the menu button gives access to something I do not usually need while focusing on the map, It'd be more convenient if it show up with the double touch of the map as the other hided menus.

hmm, thanks for the info about incorrect notification. I think I see a reason for this.

live tracking button is really interesting. May you share with me backup of settings only (backup manager)? It should help to simulate it on my device, thanks.

@Andrew Heard
"Auto-setup of function panels" > most visible (and the main reason) is screen rotation. Try it. App tries to fill top bar first and when it's full, it starts filling side panel.

Coordinate grid: unfinished feature ...

Quick new point: in case, the screen is centered on GPS, then you are right. All various parameters are also saved to point location. Which does not make too much sense, agree ... fixed, thanks.

hmm, I see some values in the log, but unfortunately not enough to fix it for sure. Anyway, I made some smaller changes that may help here, so give a try to the next Beta version. I hope it helps. And thanks for the log!
I found autohide not enabled on right panel, it's strange I have the same set up in Pro and beta. Now it's ok

version for the test is out ;)

ah sorry, wrong number ... thanks.

Custom button ... what is it? Just a single button in the right panel and you have the right panel set to "auto-hide"?
Exactly the live Trak button on right panel does not disappear as in non beta version

So you need "Of course, it would be better if Locus could read and recognize the SMS automatically."
to open the link in the sms directly in locus? I think you need to show to the developer (Menoin) an sms composed from that device to understand if it's possible.

My previous answer referred to the possibility of creating a similar functionality without a dedicated device, but using a smartphone and the Tasker app

For this purpose you can use Tasker,
create a profile that reacts to an SMS request from a specific contact "from +3391234567 and text where_are_U"
with an action, sending sms with coordinates in the form you prefer (the simplest are the built-in gmaps format).
No data connection needed only mobile and gps. (in rooted phones you can enable and disable gps with an action to save the battery, but you need more time to get better accuracy on the position).
Locus is great but I think this is not it's field of use
