@Menion, what I was saying that all those were missing in the "configuration only" backup. I consider those systems part of "configuration" because they are the result of configuration by the user.

Yes, a more sophisticated backup system would be nice. Personally, I'd prefer an auto backup without the faaaat DBs, so I wish it was more configurable. DBs - I back them up manually and only sporadically. I have auto gpx exports anyway.

I used Locus for years and loved it. I even had a gold membership. I have to move to iPhone now. Locus was the only reason to stay with Android for a long time but compatibility with my MacBook and work forces me to say goodbye. I really hope to see Locus on my iPhone again.

@Žajdlík Josef
The huge benefit of the new auto-pause system is, that it is independent of the GPS! So the app may turn GPS off and wait till get info that some movement was detected.

hmm, "Presets" and "Dashboards" are included in the "full" backup. Routing profiles are missing, good point (added). What I was thinking, was removing these two dummy manual backup systems and allowing manual & automatic backup to be fully customizable > so where and what to backup...

@Andrew Heard
version name, ah typo, sorry. There was a minor and very quick 4.12.2 version, so it caused a little mess.

Quote from: Žajdlík Josef on November 18, 2022, 09:32:06Hi Menione, autopause works quite well with shorter stops
I don't think it is working properly, or at all, for me. I've reverted to manual pause for now.

Menion, I think the "configuration only" backup is lacking important and time consuming user configuration works... and should be included IMO:


I was surprised you didn't include them. I was expecting it to backup "all but the point/track databases".

Hello Filu444,
thanks for this bug report. Indeed, there was a problem with handling extra files during import. Harder task, but solved now so it should work correctly in the next app version.
Unzip the attached file into the Locus folder as indicated in the image.
At navigation set Voice: "Morse codes -international". (Via point support).
Troubles & Questions / Re: Screen not turning on

"Sometimes" really means that during the same trip, sometimes the screen is turned on and sometimes not, right? What Android version do you have now on your device?

I'm testing Locus Map for a long time on Android 13 and detected no problem related to "screen on/off" functionality. I'm also not aware of any other user reporting this issue, weird.
