Troubles & Questions / APK locus pro
« Last post by papab on October 18, 2021, 01:55:13 »
I have Locus Map Pro on my phones and I'd like to install it on a hammerhead karoo 2.   Where can I find the APK for this?    Do I need to pay another subscription fee?
Thanks for a great app.  I've tried many the Karoo app, and many others, & Locus is the best.

Troubles & Questions / Re: "Included" trails and tracks???
« Last post by michaelbechtold on October 17, 2021, 20:19:15 »
Did you try to switch off the features in the theme selection menu?

You also may have a look at the OpenAndroMaps (OAM - openandromaps.org)? They come with highly sophisticated themes to control what you see.

Cheers

Troubles & Questions / Tracking settings
« Last post by geoffmozz on October 17, 2021, 16:30:00 »
Could someone explain the Trackpoint recording conditions please?
I'm not 100% clear on how these work. Thanks :-)

eg I will typically want to record a track with a regular 2 second track point interval
OR a consistent 10 metre track point interval.

The manual says -
Trackpoint recording conditions defines method of trackpoint recording based on distance and time intervals:
Distance AND time - both intervals at once trigger trackpoint recording - smoother line but less accurate
Distance OR time - one of the intervals triggers trackpoint recording - very accurate but a lot of trackpoints recorded

Discussion/New features / Re: Improve the Locus gpx (rte) route export.

Depending on the Mapsource routing profile used, the calculation may eventually be different. Always check it !

Gpx(rte) route export is not intended for Locus map users of course. But it is for their possible non-Locus equipment!

Direct routes are usually limited to about 200 positions. Just enough to walk from your house to your next neighbour. hmmmm....ok.. Tasmanian distances then  ;)
If you want navigation instructions, you must so first calculate with the "external" router, and then preferably also use the Locus track as a visual reference "template". So if you do recalculate, it's best to do so with only the optimal routepoint planner references.

I know this because my old Garmin eTrex would generate completely different (unwanted) route/ track when only start/ finish point was in the GPX file
.
Only Start and Finish is very little, isn't it Andrew. In the proposal it is also inclusive the Shaping (yes that very valuable info indeed) and the Via Points !

And oh sure, this is the learning price you always have to pay with this equipment. After which many will only follow visual tracks and hardly use the other possibilities of the device.

As a new GPS user it was very confusing

That's why Andrew, you too, now only use that superior reliable Locus track navigation, isn't it ?
You import your carefully prepared navigation track with instructions already attached and immediately start the navigation and this 100% true to the way you have prepared it.
No external router interferes with it and might change the design, unless you still want to be flexible and therefore allow it.

Who else offers this (similar)? 
- Locus map. (navtrack gpx) (txc) (fit)
- Kurviger (.kurviger)
- Garmin Edge bike gps range (tcx) (fit).
  Provided that you import the file directly into the device.
  Via Garmin connect you also get unexpected changes.

>Who actually uses the current Locus gpx export?
I only use non-RTE format, so happy for you to ignore or discard my thoughts below

>Contains only start & shaping & Via and Finish as route points.
but dangerous - without any knowledge of the routing profile, on import the viewer (most likely Locus) could (mostly likely) create a subtly or completely different (unwanted) route/ track. Any setting like this should not be the default.

I know this because my old Garmin eTrex would generate completely different (unwanted) route/ track when only start/ finish point was in the GPX file (exported from RWGPS). As a new GPS user it was very confusing.

So there needs to be a clear warning on the danger of this style of export. Maybe the addition of a (?) icon/ button alongside the checkbox to explain the ramifications.

Troubles & Questions / "Included" trails and tracks???
« Last post by tomasv on October 16, 2021, 20:53:17 »
Hello everyone,

I am using Locus with Android tablet mounted on my motorcycle with the purchased Locus maps for WA state, Utah etc.

Sometime the maps will show what I think are "community" or user submitted trails/tracks. Some are red, some are purple etc. In most cases this leads to a confusion as they may overlay the motorcycle offroad tracks and I end up where I should not.

How can I disable this "feature" and only show the loaded tracks?

Thanks for your help!

T.

Was ist zu tun, wenn seit 2 km die Meldung auf der Uhr stets dieselbe ist.... rechts halten? Die Anzeige bleibt stets mit der selben Message ohne im Routenverlauf weiter zu aktualisieren

Beim Umschalten auf der Fenix kommt folgeder Raster. Dieser ist leer. Wozu sollte dieser leere Raster dienen? Für was ist das gut?

Was muss getan werden, wenn die Uhr seit 2 km besagt: Halte dich rechts und die 200 Meter längst vorbei sind?
