Well the OS is complex, unfortunate problems, where sometimes you find a solution just because you hear of another dev who struggled with the same and luckily found an answer... or his users... it happens. Unfortunate, but this is reality. And please compare with the big company realities. Google. They never answer, they have no changelogs mostly, I wouldn't ever waste time on reporting them anything. Apple. They give you tools which aren't open to do what you need. You have to need what they offer... and look no further.
Let's keep our eyes and ears open, there is no doubt Asamm does the same.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Questions about POIs

Hello eldron, freischneider

existing offline LoPoints solution is very old and we are aware, it needs a bigger update. We have anyway decided to set order of priorities as
1) online LoPoints service (mostly done, working on better search, support for categories)
2) integration of extra content like Wikipedia, photos, optionally comments
3) big update of the offline solution

So, offline LoPoints should work, but if possible, we suggest using online LoPoints solution (available for free in LM4) that offer already a lot more points with a clever grouping and visibility based on the current zoom level. And data usage is really minimal ...

Maybe @Radim V may add few notes as the main guy behind our new LoPoints system if wants.


And your problems. I see mainly a problem in your point 3) as this should really not happen. I'll be using the offline version a little more and watch it as well. Thanks.

Hey, I may be weird or annoying, but this very small thing always confuses me...

I am expecting "Select all" on top - anyone else? It is the most likely thing to do. "Deselect all" is probably rarely or never used...

And in point screen it is at second place, in tracks on third...

Minor, I know 😁

Ich habe die waagerechte Ausrichtung der Schrift bisher auch nicht vermisst.

Das Problem sehe ich darin, dass das Display jetzt schon so wenig Platz hat. Schrift zu klein und man kann nichts lesen oder Schrift zu groß und es wird zu viel verdeckt.

Aber im Augenblick liegt die Schrift zumindest häufig an ungenutzer Stelle, z.B. in Straßen.

Wenn die Schrift quer zur Straße wäre, dann würde die Schrift vermutlich noch mehr Kartenbereiche überdecken und die Übersicht nicht gerade fördern.

Für diesen Fall drehe ich die Karte lieber kurz zurück.
Aber die Anforderungen sind ja auch nicht bei jedem Nutzer gleich.

Quote from: freischneider link=topic=7496.msg64864MIUI offers the option of hiding the navigation bar for certain apps. But Locus does not react to this setting.
I suggest to not use those specialties as this might bring nightmares to Menion to deal with all those gimmicks with potential misbehaviours, cornercases, whatever..

Nun, gesagt, getan. Habe die aktuelle DB gesichert, das letzte Backup eingespielt, alle Tracks aus dem LAUF-Ordner exportiert (in einem Rutsch), danach das erste Backup wieder eingespielt und dort die LAUF-Tracks wieder importiert.
Hat alles ohne Probleme gut funktioniert.

Nochmals Danke

In den Einstellungen von Locus kann man sich die Standard Verzeichnisse ansehen. Wenn ein Standard Verzeichnis auf einen nicht existierenden Ordner führt, dann meckert Locus.

Also schau nach, in welches Verzeichnis die Backups gespeichert werden.

Wenn Du ein brauchbares Backup gefunden hast, dann würde ich wie folgt vorgehen.

1.) Jetzt ein aktuelles Backup machen. Mit einer Bezeichnung, die Du auch wieder findest.
2.) Spiele ein altes Backup mit den verlorenen Tracks ein.
3.) Gehe auf den Ordner Deiner Lauf Tracks und exportiere die Tracks. Wenn ich mich richtig erinnere, dann kann man mehrere Tracks markieren und in eine Datei schreiben.
4.) Spiele Dein Backup aus 1.) zurück.
5.) Erstelle wieder einen Ordner Deiner Laufträcks und importiere die gerade exportieren Tracks aus 3.)

Ah, very good idea, thanks! Just keep on mind, that it is more a "device ID"  ::) ... every device has its own ID. Maybe incorrectly, I started to call it "user ID".

New Beta version just uploaded.

Most of the problems should be fixed. At least the random stuck when panning with the map. @fresichneider reported that full-screen still cause problems. I'm unable to find or simulate any problem, stupid :-\. Anyway, I'll keep looking, but full-screen on Android 9+ is something I would really like to remove completely ...

Hi Wole,
definitely no need to lose faith, but rather look at the very details of the fact collection.

There is an impressive collection of Samsung MODELS that MAY suffer from the issue (you named them below).
But NOT ALL of the DEVICES of those models suffer the issue!

So, same Samsung model, but different behaviour - with the exact same software (as far we can tell - there is a lot of jungle beneath the surface and the app code of a smartphone).

And we can assume that the issue is not hitting the majority of the devices of those models. Otherwise there would be much more complaints. And believe me, if my Samsungs were affected, I would be loud and clear (Menion knows a bit of that :-)

Up to now, nobody knows what differentiates a device of the same model having the problem from one that does not suffer.

A typical strategy in IT for such situations is to revert to a safe ground. Which here can mean two things:
1) a factory reset: heavy impact to the user (and not yet done yet, if I screened all the thread pages correctly). Only realistic for devices not regularly used. Maybe someone has such.
After restart NOT apply Google recovery of ANY kind. ONLY install LMP and LM4 and then re-test.
2) an Android SETTINGS reset, which should be possible at least in newer Android releases on Samsung devices. To be accurate and take out assumptions as far as possible, backup the SETTINGS in LMP and LM4. Import settings of the other kind to LMP or LM4. Test. Then use the other settings backup for both, LMP and LM4. Test.

After 4 decades in IT and SW trouble shooting I learned to not believe in magic. Not regarding the root causes, nor for the remedy of issues. But that it can be tedious, lenghty, yet SYSTEMATIC work.

Good luck and cheers

Quote from: Andrew Heard on July 05, 2021, 05:08:22 run LM4 > opened track recording panel totally blank
@menion - further testing: all foreground apps killed, phone not restarted during testing, single 6km walk with new track started each ~500m, exit/ restart LM4 if track recording panel is blank. Nothing is 100% repeatable, just more/ less likelihood of blank panel occurring. Track recording is auto-started.

  • new observation/ not previously reported: when the track recording panel is blank, the map content panel is 100% also blank
  • if track recording panel is not tapped immediately after start of recording there is more likelihood of blank panel occurring after further 500m
  • so reverse, if track recording panel is tapped immediately after start of recording there is far less likelihood of blank panel occurring after further 500m
  • generally when the recording is saved then viewed in the list, the track is duplicated
  • the most recent track(s) remain visible (Eye icon) while for the older tracks something is turned off visibility
  • the #visible tracks in the folder is displayed as 0 even though some are visible (screen cap)
  • database corruption?
  • One time the panel was OK, then 30s later on next tap blank. But another time all OK for 5 minutes.
I can upload the database but it is very large 300MB.

Weg, nach Tip, gefunden!  :D
Da ich schon so viele gute Tips bekommen habe und selbst noch viel zu wenig Wissen besitze, geb ich mal auf eine andere Weise was zurück:

"Schwebendes Menü" aktivieren/nutzen:

1. Rechte Funktionsleiste länger berührt halten, bis sich ein PopUp öffnet!

2. Die Funktion ""Leiste ändern" antippen!

3. Im sich nun öffnenden Fenster, den roten Plus-Button antippen!

4. Im neuen Fenster ""Funktionsknopf hinzufügen" auswählen!

5. Im folgenden Fenster ganz nach unten scrollen und dort "Schwebendes Menü" auswählen!

6. Danach sollte im Fenster "Funktionsleiste einstellen", das "Schwebende Menü" zu finden sein.....

7.  .....und die rechte Funktionsleiste, das entsprechende Symbol beinhalten!

8. Wird dies angetippt, öffnet sich dass "Schwebende Menü", in einem PopUp und es können insgesamt 8 Funktionen angewählt werden:

Hält man einen der 8 Buttons länger gedrückt, erscheint das Auswahlmenü, für die unterschiedlichen Funktionen. Der gedrückt gehaltene Button kann dann, gegen den, einer anderen Funktion, getauscht werden!

Es versteht sich von selbst, dass Forenuser und Admins/Mods, falls was brauchbares im Beitrag sein sollte, alles fein nutzen dürfen ...  ;)

... aber bitte für jede Frage einen eigenen Beitrag eröffnen, sodass es auch für andere suchenden übersichtlich bleibt ...
OK! Wie die Überschrift vermuten ließ, hatte ich ursprünglich daran gedacht, eine Art Sammelthread daraus zu machen, um nicht, zu jeder einzelnen Fragestellung, ständig neue Threads zu eröffnen. In einigen Foren, ist das ja so erwünscht. Die Regelung hier finde ich selbst eigentlich auch besser.
Ich hab dann auch mal gleich die Überschrift verändert, damit daraus hervorgeht, worum es sich handelt.

Search tool:
From what I see the same problem that I found in the webplanner is also present in the Locus app.
All searches are performed on the basis of the name key, but a lot of information is present in the other keys and therefore these places are not found.
In OSM many nodes do not have the name tag, but have the amenity key valued therefore Locus does not identify these values.
An example above all, of relevant importance for those who are outdoors is the search for a source of water. This public drinking fountain has no name, but is tagged as amenity = drinking_water
<osm version = "0.6" generator = "CGImap 0.8.3 (1793695" copyright = "OpenStreetMap and contributors" attribution = "" license = " ">
<node id = "6312687085" visible = "true" version = "1" changeset = "67715997" timestamp = "2019-03-02T15: 22: 00Z" user = "Cascafico" uid = "361003" lat = "45.9451386" lon = "13.6199964">
<tag k = "access" v = "yes" />
<tag k = "amenity" v = "drinking_water" />
<tag k = "drinking_water" v = "yes" />
<tag k = "indoor" v = "no" />
