I had several issues when starting the app after the update, I sent the reports but couldn't create a log since I'm on holiday..
I managed to "fix" it by  clearing app data..

The survey is done with pleasure :-) Thank you for caring so much for your users!

After some time, I would like to ask for more wide public testing. I would like to know opinion on changes that are now in Locus testing version. It's also good place for users that use "only" a Free version to test, till end of month, some features of Pro version!!

Important: mainly please use and check import/export feature. That's where I did most of work. Also is added support for NetworkLink and ScreenOverlays!!, but I don't have any good testing files, so if some files will not work, I will gladly test and fix it!

complete list of changes
----------------------------
- added ability to ignore generated descriptions for export
- now also export defined styles of tracks to KML
- added ability to export to KMZ files together with icons for points
- "integration" of Google Earth (ability to view track/point/points, together with icons and styles)
- improvements in GC Offlinizer (usage of Live API, notification)
- speed up a little handling with a lots of Field notes
- correct enabling/disabling animations by system settings
- on A3.0+, custom zoom buttons in WebView screens (Geocaching listing)
- completely removed Data Manager!
- changes in behavior of main menu
- added "Import" function to list of functions
- added GCC (Paid) to list of supported apps
- improved ordering of items in dragable screens
- speed improvements in Point rendering (around 5% less CPU usage)
- huge improvements in KML import. Support for GroundOverlays with refreshable images from internet, ScreenOverlays, Network links!
- fixed some problems with export of KML (together with icons)
- completely recreated importing system, so now import options are also at categories (integrated import/export buttons into points/tracks screen), "Display only" button is later in screen with selection
- fixed problems with OpenAir format loading
- fixed problems with loading tracks from My Tracks
- some design improvements like smaller blue headers, better dialog handling during rotate etc.
- file browser now allow "Don't ask"
- added batch logging of caches (from stored field notes)
- improved system for downloading maps that need paid credit
- introduced new system for selecting pre-prepared areas for SmartMaps download
- fixed small issues in NMEA parser
- fixed issues with incorrect map center and zoom after some imports
- added "delete_aiding_data" to reset of A-GPS data
- download button directly in shop for vector map download
- fixed issues with heading line and "true north" (hope that finally)
- added Guide to button

version for download
----------------------------

Just a feedback about the new missing data manager(the other new features I didn't use enough to build an opinion).
I like the new way better, access to data and other features by oneclick like in the new one is easier.

I did some geocaching today. Nothing seems to be broken :)

Import (from URL) works OK.

Fieldnotes seem to be faster (I don't have as many of them as before). But I couldn't find "batch logging"?

I played with the top menu buttons. 4 buttons seem a bit crowded in ZTE Blade. I chose the category list as one button. It opens the points category list, but it has toolbox icons at the right. Would it be possible to have a top menu button that opens the list with selection boxes at the right side?

In addition I discovered a lot of new (for me) stuff, like lock everything in portrait. Well done!

Hi menion,
I found a little bug (but I donĀ“t know if it is in the 2.5.6 too):
I want to "save  actual part" of a paused track and give a name to the track, but Locus changes after typing each letter back to capitals.
It happens only here, the normal way after stopping the track is ok.

And another one:
Today I looked several times during a track on the display (2.5.6.3) and almost every time there was the last part (perhaps 15 min) of track not painted. The actual position was ok. Some times the missing part was repainted but not always.
This never occured before.

All right, found the "function" instead of the "screen" :)

But I haven't found batch logging of fieldnotes, yet?

try batch log field notes from Geocaching Live API as usually. There is new settings if you want send these field notes just as field notes or as a regular logs
