Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.5.+ ( 1. 12. 2021+ )

Really COOL, Menion, TXs a lot !!

Related question: if I (need to) put some maps into this external SD private folder, would it still be possible to ADD (via map manager) a folder that is a subfolder of the main Locus structure on internal SD private folder? Solid Explorer, x-plore or adb/PC needed for populating that extra folder with maps, that is understood.

Do a backup of whole "Locus" folder if you want to be sure.

Anyway, you understand it well. Based on the push in the last few days, I was looking at how to do it and found that it won't be so hard at all. So now, the app offers move of custom directories with new options and it looks like this (check screenshot).

On the A11+, the third option won't be available of course.

TXs for your quick response, Menion.

As I was not sure about the risks, but had understood well that there is no way back, I avoided betas this time (other than all the betas before since years ...)

I will try on by A11 tablet next week. But let me also understand what below "btw" means in detail:
does this mean that ONLY the mapsvector could be moved to external SD private folder, while the other Locus folders go to the internal SD private folder?
Or did I misunderstand here?

Sure ...

Situation is:
- you have installed any of the older versions running on so-called API 29 (so anything before 4.5.0)
- then you update on any new version 4.5.0+
- system grants a special exception to this "update"! to access app old data in the root of the external memory. I was not able to find out if there is any time limit, but I think it isn't. This exception is not granted for new installs. So in case, you re-install the app, it lost this kind of access.
- question is, if any future update of the app does not remove this exception as well, I hope it doesn't. Anyway, because it is not described correctly on Google dev sites, we rather push users to transfer data into private dir as soon as possible.

Is my explanation clear?

Btw. did you notice that the latest version allows moving "mapsVector" into SD card/private directory?

Hi Menion,
can you pls. state your findings clearly re. EXISTING usage of root level map folders on internal and external SD (i.e. no re-install).
The question behind the question is, if an update will screw up the Locus install into unusable because of capacity limits (maps distributed on both, internal and external SD).
You mentioned in one post that the API 30 would tolerate existing access. But for how long?
There is need for clarity before people dare an update ...
TXs and cheers

Hmm ... these were a damn hard two months for me  ::)

Final version generated (almost identical to the latest Beta version) and published for 10% of users on Google Play (Locus Map 4 only). On Monday, where there won't be any serious problem, I'll publish it for the rest of the users.

Thanks for the help as usual! I Hope, you will excuse my pauses in answers, the file system took almost all my time.
Also Restaurant Café & Co suche ich immer über Google. Da habe ich gleich Bewertungen dabei und Bilder.

Hallo liebe Gemeinde.
Ich war heute auf der Suche nach einer Eisdiele. Da die Anzeige der Offline Wegpunkte von Openandromap in Locus kein Ergebnis lieferte habe ich Osmand gestartet.
Dort lieferte die Offline Suche nach Eisdiele direkt mehrere Ergebnisse.

Ich habe danach noch einmal intensiv alles Mögliche versucht um die Ergebnisse auch mit Locus angzeigt bekommen, ich blieb jedoch erfolglos.

Kann mir jemand sagen warum die Pois mit Locus nicht gefunden werden?
Osmand greift doch genauso, wie Openandromaps auf OSM Daten zu?

Besonders schön fand ich in Osmand, dass die Kategorie Eisdiele gefunden wurde und ich mit einem Klick alle Eisdielen auf der Karte anzeigen konnte.
Locus findet, nur einzelne Pois, bietet aber nicht die gesamte Kategorie zum Anzeigen an. Mache ich da etwas verkehrt?
Kann Locus nicht nach Kategorien suchen?
