Maybe what I wrote is useless, because I do not make us of 'action_after: "[audio,photo,video]"'
It was not useless, on the contrary I understood where I was wrong with auto_save which I confirm works, thanks.
Unfortunately audio + auto_save does not produce any recording, as I believe it creates the waypoint and immediately saves it without recording any audio file. In any case, a variable would be needed to establish the number of seconds of recording to be made, it would also be nice to insert a beep at the start and end of recording (but this is feasible with tasker).

wow this is like watching rocket scientists at have lost me but I am watching.

how about a set duration then save without the save action.  ie...I press a button on my remote (not android phone) and it triggers a waypoint in my track I'm recording and begins and audio recording and ends in 10 seconds and saves by itself.  That would work great for me.
Pressing the button the point is created, a beep warns the start of the audio recording another beep the end of the recording without the need for any other user intervention and without even having to look at the display.
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.

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.

I do not want to accuse anyone, but only to make a consideration:
I am perplexed when I see devices of this type when almost all of us have an old smartphone in some drawer that no longer use and could be used for these experiments. We can make our contribution to the environment by reusing what we no longer use instead of buying objects that tomorrow will be technological waste to be disposed of.
The toy seems to me too big to be used on the wrist, too small (in my opinion) to be used as a navigator.
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.

The new LoSatMaps are brilliant in our area - thank you Locus!
Today i will hike with the alpine club, I'm sure if i show them the satellite view you will have several downloads.
Great improvement

Nice, but I wish Satmap was downloadable...  :)
Interesting Satmap, what is it? Does not seem to be Google/Bing/Esri - EDIT ah, HERE maps
In the description I found "Map Tiles @2022 Here, Maxar, EuroGeographics"

Is it possible to know the date of the aerial shot?
I am using them as a locus map overlay on my very old test cell phone and they work beautifully.
As Tapio said, it would not hurt to have the ability to download satellite images locally for limited areas of interest such as lidar files, although I understand that the data to be exchanged in this case is very consistent.
Having the images locally, on our mobile phones, would lighten the data exchange and benefit your servers.
Did you use stop or pause? With pause I have no issue with the connection with my Garmin FR235 for heart rate monitor.
Paused locus,
paused or stopped (both tested) the garmin
restart of the garmin
restart of locus, the heart rate is still there.
But in my case I use the ant connection.

Then they should submit a proposal so others can vote for it.
Here is the place to do it:
Select the web planner as an option.

Here are all the suggestions for the web planner:

Thank you, so I found a similar idea I voted too with 5 votes.

I think there are a lot of things in Locus world used by 1% of the users, so if this is a 5% in your opinion, it's at a very good level.
I never wrote this is a priority task, just an idea for improving the functions of web planner.
And remember, not all the users are "nerds" like in the locusmap forum, there is someone out there that do not use 2 devices at the same time.
And it is not said that when you go out in a group others use their smartphones for GPS navigation, providing them with a paper map is always useful even for educational purposes only.

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.

Ugh, I need to look again. Just some related thoughts I hope:

a) I didn't only have Locus GPX in mind. Some other apps were in use as well, they create different xml formats. Replace with NULL? Do I leave an ugly empty line? May need to look at it again.
b) time xml tag may be stretched over multiple lines.
c) I think with the exclusion of the bracket I prevented greedy matching. Keep in mind Regex matches greedy. a.*b matches until the last "b": 1234abcdgebabbbgggchbdkj - i.e. in GPX it would match from first <time> until the last </time> it can find. This would effectively delete most of the gpx - this is also because sed -z in a way flattens the whole file to one line (otherwise, in the default line-by-line style of sed, regex wouldn't work for xml tag structures IMO)
d) As for the tab I probably was just lazy to look into docs, wasn't sure about it being included in \s, thanks for the info
a) I understand, I associate gpx with locus without thinking that there are other apps  :D
Replace with NULL? sed -i -z 's;[\s\t]*<time>[^<]*</time>[^<]*;;g' sed 's for substitution; regexp for search; text to replace with; g greedy operator' the null in this case is between ;;
b) do you have an example?
c) so you use this method because of the -z parameter, this part is also not clear to me, do you have a file example for which the -z parameter is needed?
Never using the -z parameter makes it harder for me to interpret your regexp, do you have an example file that made it necessary for you to use it?
d) Sometimes being a beginner like me is an advantage because without documentation you do nothing  ;D

Thanks for the comprehensive answers, you are very kind as always
