[APP] - version 2.19.X+ (updated 17.3.2014)
« on: February 14, 2014, 13:53:34 »
22.3.2014 - Locus 2.19.1.7

Please, if anyone has Android 4.4.x with SD card, where this SD card is not writtable, find some time and test how it works now with Locus. Simple test is to create empty dir on card only, another test is dir in internal memory only and in the end two directories at once. Locus should now handle all situations and in case of troubles, display new screen with detail description and hint what to do. Hope it will be clear. It's major problem and I do not have better solution than, if it occur, explain how to solve it.

changes compare to 2.19.1.5
- a lot of (10+) small or bigger fixes in new Point screen
- fixed problems with using SQLite maps places on read-only SD card
- highly improved start screen tab, that check problems with filesystem

- improved removing "mapItems". If you remove all items from one file, "mapItem" will be disabled
- improved placing of texts for distance/time rings on map
- improved icons for address/contact searching
- fixed some problems with geocaching waypoints (mainly using it's "Final" type)
- added support for export altitude also for KML waypoints
- fixed problem with import of some special extensions in GPX files
- last small improvements in automatic backup system
- fixed crashes after import and "tap" on hungarian caches
- picking waypoint in "Get location from map" screen, show only small confirm dialog now
- and some small unimportant UI improvements

known, not yet solved/decided issues
- map in Point overview when main map is rotating
- order of tabs in new Point screen - vote here

download - direct link

17.3.2014 - Locus 2.19.1.5

changes compare to 2.19.1.4

- improve Google Places (gallery and added "open hours")
- improved screen with items/trackables in FieldNotes
- fixed problem with overlayed dashboard on main screen
- added support for using new Point screen also on track points/waypoints
- fixed problems with sorting geocache logs and using new "Friends" system
- hopefully fixed not perfectly working auto-backup
- added ability to define default path for images from camera by config file

11.3.2014 - Locus 2.19.1.4

changes compare to 2.19.1.3
- improvements in layout of point screen

- improved design of start screen and small fixes in checking existing directories
- made Garmin icons smaller to look better in picking dialog
- improved system of friends in geocaching
- fixed problem with crashing of field notes
- fixed generating of Offlinized HTML pages (to fix problem with rescaling of images in "Image" tab, you need to delete cached HTML page in data/geocaching directory. Fortunately all new, never offlinized caches will be automatically OK)

- added ability to move from cache waypoint to cache screen

Hello menion,
thanks for new Version with many improvements :)
little problem that also exist in last PRO but not in testversion and so i hoped it is solved. :-[

After solving a mystery cache, i edit the coords and stored it, after that i "update the cache" to see the newest loggs.
At that moment an additional waypoint "ursprüngliche Koordinaten" is created,  not with the original coords but with the same corrected coords and so both icons are at the same position.

hmm weird, I'm not aware that I create any additional logs ... I think, this should be waypoint created by Geoaching4Locus (if you use this add-on to update caches). I'll check it, thanks.

About the sqliteDB map  importing error  in external memory(SD) - Android 4.4.2

Have you heard the sqlite map importing error in external SD memory ?
I've just known it when I moved the Google offline map to SD memory in Galaxy Note 3.



Chek it over, pls.

@balloni: interesting. I never knew about this feature of G4L add-on, but it works in a way, you wrote. Problem is, that once you change coordinates of any cache, original coordinates are lost. So question is, if create any waypoint or not. And if so, how to work with him if you update cache, change coordinates again etc... Anyway I'm sure, this is not something that was fixed in testing version and now isn't. You probably tested it on some cache, that has original coordinates and you updated these coordinates on web.

@gynta: I tried three devices and on all works "Quick switch info" correctly. May you do for me "Backup only settings" in Backup manager and send me this? There is probably incorrectly store any value.

And problem with map - very nice, thank you. Unfortunate side effect of new system I created for handling map view. Possitive effect is, that I may now very easy place map on screens I need, so like small overview on point screen. I expect there will be more such problems, but hope not too serious ...

@jusc: hmm, another one ... similar to this? http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3696.0

@beonun: I´m trying few SQLite maps (put then on card and use) and Locus has no problems with initialization and using. May you please check if your file is correctly loaded in Locus directory and file is not locked to read only?

Nope, Locus was ok. Only the shortcut on home screen was gone

Audio/Video attachments to points
Current ability to attach photos to points is now extended. Since new version, you may directly record audio notes, take and attach video and also one more possibility – attach any generic file you want to have “close” to your point of interest.
Keep in mind, that we still work on this feature and in next version, we will introduce improved design experience.
Really nice feature - but my first test outdoor runs in a "disaster".
First: it was MY FAULT

I wrote a long description text to a POI,
Swiched to tab "attachment"
Add 5 photos, 2 videos and 1 audiofile (well nice birdsong)
and then i pressed "back"....


PLEASE! ask, blame, notify me - but don't let me quit this dialog before i press hidden ;) "Save" button.

since yesterday, forget on old "point screen", "edit point screen" and "geoaching screen". They all are now merged into one screen and rewroted from scartch. So good news - a lot of new bugs will appear ;)

ah and EDIT: "Save" button do not exists now. All is saved after you leave screen of point. If this is good approach or not, will show time and testing ...
