Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.13.+ ( 12/2022 )

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
Take a look at wms Maps in locus map pro, the map you need seem to be already there

I noticed that the locus notification is not updated after the rec is started, it shows 0, see attachment.
In reality, the registration takes place, as soon as I click on the notification the data reported by the app are correct, see attachment.
Even the time of the notification remains that of the start of the recording, in fact it remains frozen.

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.

For OSM it's ok and for my direct experience too. Why is not included when planning?

Posted some time ago, not fixed.

HEIC format is not supported in lopoints for adding user photos.

Heic photos are not geotagged like the jpg on the map.

There is no support for this image format in the app, but many devices are now using it in less space with better quality.

Do I have to choose, go back to jpg or convert the images I need from heic to jpg every time?
I hope locus can handle heic format soon.
Web portal & sync / Hide to bar in web planner
December 09, 2022, 15:49:50
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.

Quote from: freischneider on November 13, 2022, 09:47:09I had problems with the car break today.
Start recording
100m driven
Break (waiting for passengers, about 8 min.)
Continued driving but no more recording.
My settings in the picture. Do you need more settings ?

Perhaps goggle play services also determines the usage pattern based on the connected devices, in fact it determines the type of activity or its change, not exactly the movement, at least from the few things I've tried to understand just for my curiosity.
You probably connect the phone via bluetooth or usb to the car and that's enough because even when stationary it doesn't change status from recording to pause status, because you were in car mode and in fact, connected to the car you haven't changed mode.

I think it will be difficult to find a method to pause recording that works with different devices and different types of activities. I see it more as a help for the inattentive like me, who pause and forget to restart the recording, so much so that I no longer use the pause function because I've been screwed too many times.
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
