@Andrew Heard
the new auto-pause really pauses a recording, so all indicators that inform about the recording should change.

Do you want to export multiple points from a single folder to separate files? Why? :)

by "maps page" you mean Locus Store right? This is very old known problem. Also because of the exists mentioned "Home" button  :). I'm still unable to solve this and most probably, there will be new Locus Store sooner than this will be fixed ...

thanks, colors fixed

@Viajero Perdido
hmm so "only" a problem with the refresh of the profile on the app side. The name should be anyway correct in all other places as this is always downloaded fresh from the central database.

After a Lomaps download, it as not possible to leave the maps page. The only way out is the Home button at the bottom left.
Interessante theoretische Frage, ich glaube aber nicht, dass es darauf eine Antwort gibt, jedenfalls gibt's die nicht von Locus und auch  nicht von BRouter.
Den Entfernungsmittelpunkt zu finden wird auf anderem Wege wohl noch möglich sein, aber das Problem sind m.M.n. die nutzbaren Strassen, quasi der Zeitmittelpunkt.
Was nützt es, wenn alle die gleiche Entfernung zum Zielort haben, der eine kann aber nur über Landstrassen und 35 Ortsdurchfahrten zum Ziel gelangen und der andere fährt über die Autobahn?
Das ist aber noch nicht alles, denn gesucht wäre ja eigentlich ein Kompromiss zwischen Länge und Dauer, wobei jeder der Beteiligten dafür auch noch unterschiedliche Prioritäten haben kann.
Vielleicht war's ja ein Weihnachtsrätsel.
Aber eine universell sinnvolle Lösung für das Problem gibt es nicht. Je mehr die vier Punkte von der Rechteckform  weg liegen, umso unsinniger bzw. ganz unmöglich wird eine Lösung.
Liegen z.B. alle vier Punkte nahezu auf einer Linie (Rosenheim-München-Augsburg-Aalen) gibt es für den direkten Weg gar keine Lösung. Wären die Punkte trapezförmig angeordnet und die Punkte der kürzesten Seite (z.B. Stuttgart/Aalen) sehr nah beeinander und die beiden anderen, die die längere Seite bilden, sehr weit voneinander entfernt (z.b. Trier/Weiden i.d. Opflz.), wäre es Unsinn. Denn dass die beiden ersteren sehr weit fahren müssen, nur um sich der Strecke der beiden weit Entfernten, die dadurch kaum einen Gewinn haben, anzunähern, ist eine eindeutige "Win-Lose"-Situation.

I'd like to try out the photo-upload feature.  But first, I need to scrub my real name and use my internet name instead.

BTW, the blog post at says the user profile is only accessible in the "Locus Map application".  I think you meant to say, "Locus Map Web application" because I couldn't find it in the Android application.

Anyway, I changed my user name in the web application, and it now shows my internet name in the corner of the map display, good.  However, on either of my two main Android devices, when I try to upload a photo, it still says "[my real name] will be published...".  (4.12.2)

My real name is unfindable on the internet, and I like it that way.  :)

EDIT:  If I then visit Locus Store, Account, I see [internet name] and icon that I chose in the web app, good.  THEN, when I try to upload a photo, it correctly says "[internet name] will be published...".  This happened on both devices.  A visit to Locus Store / Account was needed for it to correctly show the desired name.

Hi Menion,

I don't know if this helps, but I've tested an alternative mapping app (OSM...) and it works fine at every navigation point.

are you aware that you have set the dark mode?

but you're right, it's very hard to read

With the new version there are some change with the layout. But now you can not see the display cleanly, because the text is displayed in dark blue on a gray background. Before the text was white or light gray. Can you please change this again?

Quote from: Menion on December 02, 2022, 16:31:20auto-pause system, so consider it as a "Beta" feature that simply needs some testing and time ...
I haven't tested further; it wasn't working reliably or at all, so will need more that just testing & time. Is there some visual indication when auto-pause is active? This would help in any further testing.
ideally sound. It's cold, and the phone is often in the pocket.

I noticed, in case of Export multiple Points, the checkbox "Export to single file" is missing - it does always export to one file. The user may want to export to multiple files. Currently impossible.
Tasker / Location with Locus info
Last post by lor74cas - 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
