I noticed that several forms have the back button <- but in fact they don't go back to the previous form but exit completely.
for buttons <-- the forms should go back to the previous form
they should be modified with X to indicate the exit.

Quote from: freischneider on February 21, 2023, 12:41:47I think they are exaggerating a bit here. Why do they always have the screen on ? Normally they are hiking or biking and look at the path. On Locus you look only if you need information. So the screen can stay off 70% of the time.
Yes, I agree, but everyone uses his device as he sees fit, in my case:
I start recording with Locus and only use the phone to take pictures or at crossroads when I have to choose which way to go, so during any excursion Locus is only active for a few minutes.
I prefer to turn it on for a few seconds and thanks to the high contrast of the icons I can see all the details even in full light, changing these settings in my case would be worse.
The copyright symbol could be less shiny (it's only there as a requirement) and that wouldn't be a problem, but the other icons the way I use them shouldn't be changed.

In addition, the displays have timers that first reduce the brightness and then turn off the display to avoid this type of problem, just set a timer that suits your needs.

Perhaps the problem arises for those who use Locus as a navigator in the car and want to leave it always active. If this is the problem, it would be useful to tie the brightness of the icons to a profile for example for use in the car.
I believe that instead of only checking the accessibility values ��there is a filter on the name, just like I don't allow to pass "military road" so in your case it does not allow you to pass on "tram route"

thanks for the reminder about older posts. The first is more on @Radim V , I've informed him. Second about HEIC ... well even the latest Android 13 on Pixel 5 is unable to take photos in this format. Your Samsung device is capable of?

Weather is discussed mainly here on the help desk. Two points are solved now. "Yellow", hmm, I do not know. I may delete value by 3, but on the second side, app display 3-hours interval ...

if you mean it as frequency it's better in 1h if you mean it as rainfall in time period then that's okay, but I'm used to the hourly frequency so it seemed anomalous to me

some small problems on the weather forecast part
You cannot view this attachment.

BLUE: seems to indicate "back" but its function is "exit"
RED: The unit of measure is misaligned due to the word "Percepita" causing the text to slip
YELLOW: This is not an error, but it is strange to see a 3 hour interval, it is usually hourly, but it is indicated and therefore if one pays attention to it, one should understand it.

The source of the weather data is never mentioned, which is now openweather

The user guide is out of date with references to Dark Sky

with this bookmark setup you have access to the Strava Heatmap in the desired location.
You cannot view this attachment.
The first time the browser opens you only need to log in to see the higher zoom level.

The zoom I used is fixed at 15, because using the same Locus zoom level the two maps differ too much.

No need to manage with config file, cookies, edit file as in this old post

Obviously a different result is obtained, but for someone it could be useful to easily see the most popular routes

I have identified the following critical issue:
url "share location" misinterpreted depending on the method used

Case of use, in locus:
share -> my real time position (the first one, not LT)

now I can copy the link or choose which tool to share with
The copied text is like this example:
"Ciao, Locus Map dice che sono qui al momento:"

If I share it with whatsapp there is no problem and the link is interpreted correctly, but if i use a text message the url is misinterpreted as it also considers the final "."

Unfortunately, the misinterpreted link is not formally incorrect and still opens the position but in the wrong place.

As far as I know it is the messaging application that interprets the link because it is not possible to create a real hyperlink in text messages. The message app I use is the default of Samsung.

Even if the error depends on an external app it is better to remove the "." so that the risk of error is reduced

don't worry, for the use I make with locus always open it's strange that I noticed it
Quote from: Menion on January 04, 2023, 09:40:45A limited list of apps > Locus Map does not have permission to access all available apps on the device, only the pre-selected ones. So I need to manually define supported apps. This is different compared to Tasker.
I understand. I don't know how many have not found an app among the links, for me it's the first time with Plantnet. If you want you could open a thread in the forum or wherever you prefer, so that everyone reports the missing app data in the way you need and then you can implement it in the next version.

Quote from: CabrioTourer on January 03, 2023, 20:13:03For me a feature to add a bookmark button directly in the side/bottom/... panel will be much better.
Everyone has their preferences, I like having all the links in the same menu, but many would love your idea. I saw a request for this on:
App links or bookmarks are very similar and the functions can be confused, perhaps it would be appropriate to combine them by distinguishing internal links to phone apps and external links to web services, therefore even clearer between offline (app) and online (web).

well yes it's me again, sorry if I torment you I'm just a poor man on vacation during the holidays and it rains outside every single day.
I was trying to enter a shortcut to the plantnet app in Locus and came across this warning on the menu:
You cannot view this attachment.
and in fact I did not find the desired app among those proposed.

I then took advantage of the locus bookmarks and the teachings of Tapio

I created a bookmark that "calls" tasker, namely a task with the name Plantnet

Since for Tasker there is no problem to open any app, a simple "Launch App" command was enough to get the result.

I turned a shortcut into a bookmark and for me it's even more useful, so I have everything in the same menu.

hmm, there seem to be some changes with notifications as well with the latest Android 13 update  >:(. May you please check app system settings > Permissions > Notifications ... are they enabled for Locus Map?

HEIC format: I've informed @Marek Scholtz , he will look at it.

All locus notifications are active
Permissions for Locus are active except physical activity.
Out of my curiosity, what is "physical activity" in locus for?
Thank you
