Vector maps not found recognized as downloaded already
« on: February 19, 2013, 23:32:18 »
Edit: Maybe I should mention that I updated to 2.9.0 from 2.8.7 and have used locus just this evening after the update but I do not know whether this has something to do with my problem


Hi,

somehow I messed up with the vector maps folder settings.

I have added the folder
.../Locus/mapsVector/
manually again to the folder list, but now if I go to the vector map download  manager locus does not recognize my maps which I have already donwloaded.

Is there  a way that I can get back the default setting and also to do something like a folder scan to get back my previous status?

Best regards,

dreamteam

Edit:
1st I renamed the folder on the internal card - just to be sure... ;-)
Locus was starting and using the folder on the external card - all was fine

2nd I than deleted the locus folder on the internal card

I think all is good now

Hi
Updated to 2.9.1
Just realized that I have now 2 locus folders
1 on internal memory card
1 on my external sd card

Not sure whether this was done by 2.9.0

Locus is saying at startup that there are 2 main folders and is selecting the new one on the internal memory card which is not the right one.

Question:
- Is it save to delete the complete locus folder on the internal card?

-  could I change the selection of locus to use which folder somewhere in the setting?

Best regards

Hmm this is really weird ...

new logic in last version 2.9.1 is that Locus search for all possible places of Locus directory and if there exists more then one, than notify you about this. Selection of default directory is done by simple method. I check size of Locus/data/database directory and compare them. I simply expect that directory where user have stored most points/tracks is correct one.

Is this working in same way at your device? if so, then why Locus choose internal memory directory and not external? Hmm ...

Anyway you may simply delete duplicate directory, if you don't need it (if is empty and really done by accident)

The locus folder on my external card is definitely larger in size because there are all my vector maps stored.
In case you detect more than one locus folder maybe you can pre select and advice a location but let the user make the final choice.

edit

I just realized that after a reboot a new but empty locus folder is created in the internal memory card
I am on 2.9.1
