I'm not sure if Locus is able to read or unzip .zip-Files.
But I can tell you a useful tip to bulk unzip files on a PC: I'm using software "WinRAR", mark all files I want to unzip, right mouse click and select "Extract Here" from the menu. Now all files are unzipped into the same directory

Can I also save the files as a ZIP ? Or can Locus not read them then. I have saved them internally.
If ZIP goes, must then all ZIP be or does it also go as ZIP and unpacked mixed.
Since then I have each unzipped and then pushed to the phone. But is a lot of work. And it also takes until they are moved via USB. For quick and practical tips I am grateful.

Quote from: ColdAutumn on Yesterday at 03:49:19May I know which version of Locus you are currently using? LM3 or 4 ?
Currently LM4. I switched from LM3 as of supporting the delelopers and better synching between devices. You can do this with third party apps, but the internal synch is way easier.

Weather is discussed mainly here on the help desk. Two points are solved now. "Yellow", hmm, I do not know. I may delete value by 3, but on the second side, app display 3-hours interval ...

if you mean it as frequency it's better in 1h if you mean it as rainfall in time period then that's okay, but I'm used to the hourly frequency so it seemed anomalous to me

Quote from: Menion on Yesterday at 08:24:47Hi guys, interesting discussion. I've moved it to "Free chat" category where it belongs I believe :)

Anyway, are there any serious advantages of the OsmAnd compared to Locus Map? Some time ago, OsmAnd was made mainly for navigation and nothing more. Over years, both apps have more and more in common, but both do things in different ways.

But because I've never used OsmAnd (what a surprise  :) ), I'll be interested in the major advantage you see in it, thanks.

I also used OruxMaps earlier. After a period of time, I discovered Locus. After that, I discovered OsmAnd.

I think these three softwares are professional standards. This is compared to the Map App used by ordinary people such as Google Map.

When I found Locus, I quickly gave up OruxMaps( If the OruxMap person sees it, I must say sorry.).

Osmand's advantage I think is the map data itself. It includes too many map data I like, such as global depth data.

The advantage of Locus is the management of geographical data. The current map is really weak, so Locus can easily switch different maps.

Such as:
https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/30589-today-the-offline-search-feature-still-seems-to-be-in-early-beta ;D  ;D  ;D ;)  ;) 

But OsmAnd does not directly support image map calibration. This is a pity.
And OsmAnd's processing speed of offline maps seems much faster. Locus seems to be significantly slow.

Locus and OsmAnd are all my favorite, I don't know if there are better apps.

Thank you for your great work!

trackpoint view - heh, probably because of two lines caused by the long track name right? :). Hmm, thanks.

Just tested --> yes because of 2 lines. With one line it is good.

@baegas
to check VDOP value and why it does not refresh, I'll need from you recorded NMEA messages created in the time, the problem was visible. It may be done by enabling NMEA recorded in the Locus Map > settings > GPS & sensors > NMEA recording. Thanks.

@Andrew Heard
problem with the bottom panel > it is a work in progress. We are preparing an updated version of this panel that will hopefully help here.

Oh, sorry. I forgot to comment about Osmand+, I tried it last year for a short time. It didn't convince me, for my mountain sports and Geocaching I prefer Locus.
I don't doubt that Osmand+ is a good app but I don't know what I'm looking for.

I convert the SHP with Locus Gis but I would have liked to be able to use them directly in Locus Map.

Hi and welcome :)
It is more about OsmAnd than OruxMaps. OruxMaps is very close to Locus Map, but it is not so actively developed, and hard to say what are Jose's plans.

SHP files are fully supported in Locus GIS app. I do not think it belongs to Locus Map app as it is format focused on GIS & mapping.
