Thank you for quick response for every item.

- The Question dialogue to 'Remove', bottom right button should be 'Remove' as well in stead of 'Delete'.
isn't this oposite? There is "Remove" already set

Sorry for my poor explanation.  Please have a look at the image below. Operation start from 'Remove' button and confirmed by 'Delete' button. My point was to use the same word.



- POI alert > Text-to-speech Play : It seems test voice is not properly assigned.
sorry, do not understand

Sorry again. By tapping 'Play' button of the POI alert's Text-to-speech test, I heard something like 'T POI alert test'. 'T' won't be needed.

- Test voice by the Text-to-speech Play button for 'out of track(navigation and guide)', 'next point' and 'poi alert'(maybe) is always 'Do you like Locus?'. How about to assign appropriate sample voice from *.tts for each notification test play?
I'll try to improve it

Thanks. With this improvement, I'm sure the above poi alert's test issue will gone as well. :)


Some more things...

Attaching audio, video and other files:
- As soon as ATTACHMENT tab is selected, Locus always opens software keyboard but there is no field for texts.

- When points are exported as gpx or kml, not only photo file but also audio/video/other files are copied into '*-photo' folder. Folder name may be updated to '*-media' or '*-attachment'.

ability to define items below and above "add new path" line (in cfg file):
- distance:1 and bearing:2 works fine but ETA:3 and elevation:4 shows nothing. (I've srtm files installed in Locus/data/srtm folder.) Btw, What is ETA? Estimate Time of Arrival?

you already built a folder structure in locus
-media
-photo_parking
-photo_poi
-photo_screenshot
i think to searche  a photo in photofolder is much sipler as to search in a big mixed mediafolder for it.

to be true, I want to completely remove these photo folders. Because photo_parking contain always just max one photo, and "photo_screenshots" is not used too often probably, so these pictures may be also in media ...

hmm and what about structure

Locus/data/media/audio
Locus/data/media/photo
Locus/data/media/video
Locus/data/media/screenshots
Locus/data/media/others

possible? Maybe this will make all this stuff better organized

@ta-ka - thanks, all fixed.
You're correct with ETA and elevation. ETA is what you wrote - estimated time computed from current speed and "elevation" is little bit CPU consuming in cases you move with points fast, so I'll rather remove both these possibilities from config file description

@balloni:
You have empty screenshots directory when you take "Screenshot" with locus > menu > share feature? Have to check it. And what place to "others"? For now, photo from "Parking" feature ;)

5.1.2014 - Locus 2.18.0.1
changes
- added new feature "QR Code generator"
The QR code generator works well. (I'm the guy who has wanted this feature  ;))
There is already an application that used this feature for precise geolocation photos taken by external camera. It is an add-on for FixFoto (http://www.j-k-s.com/) or Photo Perfect (http://www.photoperfect.com/photoperfect-introduction.html:

But the QR code generator is still not perfect.  8)
Made up the photo of the QR code, the time is already outdated. It would be very, very nice if the QR code would update automatically every few seconds. And for safety's sake should date and time below the QR code with be mapped in a readable form.

hmm understand. Anyway this require another few hours of work till this should work correctly. I'm worried that there will be a low amount of people who will use this feature at all. And if now, if there will be a lot of users who will want improve work with QR Codes, I'll gladly improve it ... so we will see.

This QR-code function isn't related to coordinates. Maybe it could be an additional feature in an separated app? Otherwise Locus becomes bigger and bigger.

Hi menion,

I found that on HTC J (Japanese version of HTC One S, android 4.0.4), just after opening GPS screen, Locus(Test 2.18.0.5) is forcibly closed with the message "Unfortunately, Locus Free has stopped.". It doesn't happen on Locus Pro(2.18.0). May I ask to fix this?

Thanks in advance.

@ta-ka: thank you! If you will have time, check please test version. For me on Xperia X8 also with 4.0.4 it works fine ...

@KaHeMu: it's a question - it's related to Geolocation of photos as well as track record. I found it also very useful to share specific location to another user. It's very easy and fast ...

sorry tommi, you are too fast. I found one small issue, so I deleted version, generated new and now is uploading. After 10 minutes will be ready. Anyway there is probably nothing too interesting for you I think. It's mainly version with many small fixes that various people reported ... but more users will try, better of course :) Have a nice evening!

I've confirmed GPS screen works fine on HTC J with Locus Test 2.18.0.7.
Thank you for prompt fix! :)
