@bucky_kid: thanks, you're correct with rendering after zoom, problem found and fixed

@john_percy: I'm unable to simulate it. may you export me one point with this label? Thanks

@joeloc: give me name of any opensource app that may do it and I'll gladly fix it. Because I was unable to find a way to make it work

@tommi:
1) hmm on nexus 7 yes, on other devices (most of them), there will be also a vibration part, so you'll be able to disable sound and keep enabled only a vibration

2) no. I agree, it may be confusion and I'll probably think about it once more. "Invalid distance" change "navigation" to "guiding". Distance in notification is just only for a notification ...

3) ah yes, I found it also during a trip when I wasn't able to set POI alert, parking etc. because of this :)

Hi John,
* street names fixed based on your suggestion - thank you!
*  the path symbols are complicated. It needs some changes in Mapsforge library - I’ll discuss it with menion.

This what I got from tapping on the point and then sharing it, first as text, then as kml

Hi John,
* street names fixed based on your suggestion - thank you!
*  the path symbols are complicated. It needs some changes in Mapsforge library - I’ll discuss it with menion.
My current workaround is
- displace the streetnames with dx="16" or so
- displace the one way arrows using a modified image with excess space at the tail. The arrow is rendered so that the centre of the image is centred on the centre of the (main) road that the side street comes off:
- turn off repeat="true" following jusc
- displace the streetnames some more with dx="40" instead to avoid the arrows and the names clashing!
This is only a workaround, and it would be far better to do it properly.

I can understand but as you wrote: the one way symbol can be overlooked.  What about prohibit oneway symbol for highway=motorway|trunk ?

I’d like to have “margin” options for  lineSymbol or even better possibility to set pattern: [gap-symbol-gap-symbol]. We’ll see what is possible to do with Mapsforge lib.

When I upload field notes, they appear in wrong order on gc.com website - the first one is always wrong (the rest is OK). Looks like the date/time of the first one is shifted two hours back.
Do you like Scrabble? You can play on SKREBL.EU (my personal project) - free, various language versions available!

@john, may you please tell me some way, how you get point with single quote to locus and how locus created a double quote in title? Because I have no problem when I manually create single point, so I'm unable to simulate this problem and also fix it

@mek: this happen to you with latest test version or 2.16.0 from store?

The point is in great-britain.poi.db which I downloaded from this forum some betas ago from http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3267.0  - it's dated 31-07-2013 and is 130,612kb in size. As to how Locus produces two single quotes, I was hoping you'd tell me! ;D
I'm using the points of interest testing feature. I have a Great Britain map that I renamed to great-britain.osm.map to match the poi database file, as instructed previously, and one popup appears when the poi is centred on the screen, and the other when it is tapped.

If the problem is only a proper refresh, setting orientation to horizontal and then back to vertical right away should do the trick, even on 4.3. But thats all I know... sorry. Too much biking, not enough programming... :)

@john: thanks, that's what I needed to know. Probably some issue in database generator, I'll check it

@joeloc: it isn't so simple. Android natively do not support change of "locale" for single app. You need to "hack" it a little. And this unfortunately do not work on A4.3+. But I'm sure, that soon or later somewhere appear any solution. I just do not want to waste too much time on it, because I think it's no so important

Well yes... its a hack. But a nice one... especially if you want your system in english but really cant stand the not-so-pretty "locusian english" :-). Anyway... ES File Explorer for example can still change languages on very latest Android without problem. Its not open source, but I am sure they d tell you the proper hack. They were quite responsive and cool on other issues: contact (at) estrongs.com

I'll keep this in mind and immediately I find any working hack, I'll implement it ;)

Anyway probably last testing version is in first post. I fixed, hope that everything serious I found. Because my head has a lot of holes, remind me if you find any problem you want to fix. There will be probably "fix version" within a week after release (in case of some serious problems), but ...

During my tests i have noticed, that the stored picture in "locus/data/photo_poi" is not deleted when i delete the poi.
The pictures are not deleted anymore after i delete the poi :(
