Quote from: "menion"Hello Khaytsus, I don't know BCN and even GeOrg so I don't know which map format they use. Anyway locus use SQlite dababase as main map storage or little bit modified version of TrekBuddy format. So if these programs use same format, then there is no problem. Otherwise I cannot help. I tested few days before, free version BCN. I was curious why is this app so popular. And after testing, I'm curious more then before. May you say me? Because I cannot find on this app at least something, which is nice. Many free apps, like Orux, Locus Free and next, are by me better then BCN. I also discovered that OutDoor Active maps they use are stolen!! So why is this app so expensive?? Hmm ...PS: and sorry, I forget to response on your email from AppBrain. Anyway, much better is to chat about it here ...
Quote from: "wvb"copy/paste from the changelog of GeOrg 1.1.9:- Support for Locus-SQLite-Mapsthinks this is what you are looking for haven't tested it myself as I use Vector maps in Locus
Quote from: "menion"hmm fine. Thanks for answer about BCN. Anyway, please tell me one more thing (because I'm sometimes really curious) ... why are you still using GeOrg?
Quote from: "menion"i don't think that there is some needed info how to ... because Locus IS already replacement and I think much more (I was just playing with georg few minutes, so my though aren't precious). Did you tried import PQ GPX file into Locus? If not, try ...EDIT: just about Geocaching tools in locus - these are only a small bonus for my dear geocachers
Quote from: "menion"fine, if you'll have some time, it will be welcome ... thank you!
Quote from: "menion"firstly - interesting issue. Don't know what can cause this. If you can, upload here one database category that not work on N1, and I'll try to look at it ...about comparision: amazing list!! . Have to take some time and read it carefully. It looks you had a loooong day EDIT: Ok, so just take first part ... "Waypoint list"- filtering and sorting, I was working on this yesterday and today so will be improved a little in next version- Searching waypoints - what you mean by this? You mean searching for cache by cache ID or name, or searching for cache additional waypoints? Because this first is there, second not and the second ... "Waypoint maintenance"- importing updates - yes- maintain user data - yes- waypoint averaging - for this exist additional application called GPS Averaging, that cooperate directly with locus
Quote from: "menion"hmm quite interesting. I tried you file and NO Problem! ... weird. So only what can help me is some log with your crashabout expiration time for geocaches. Ok, as first step, I created ability to display and sort caches by last update time. So now you can see which caches aren't updated for a long time. I know you require some automatical mechanism ... I have to think more about itanyway from first two parts of your list, all is clear? Searching method is as you discovered. You can access it from menu->functions->search of from right panel. It's only on main map screen because as you can see, it do not contain only search for POI, but much more
Quote from: "menion"hso, let's look on third part "waypoint action"- only problem seems to be some missing call to google maps. As you probably discovered, when you tap on waypoint, there is under last bottom button, call to external applications like google nav, navigon (if installed) and some more. Waze can also be called from external application? Have to check ...
Quote from: "menion"hnext, "cache hunting"- quick switch from compass to map? Top left Home button. And back? as you discovered, compass button on right panel for example"maps"- no in-app navigation? Tap on waypoint and in bottom menu is guiding and compute path function
