Very little minor bug:
Slider for opacity in WMS maps can't actually be slided, just listens for taps. Sliding focuses the sidebar.

Thank you Matthias, issue will be solved in next version.

Hi, menion.

About half year ago we discussed about possibility to display elevation value along editing path line.

Quote from: ta-ka
ability to define items below and above "add new path" line (in cfg file):
- elevation:4 shows nothing. (I've srtm files installed in Locus/data/srtm folder.)

Quote from: menion
"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
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=3613.msg26175#msg26175

I've just read your post at help desk:
Quote
Because in latest 3.1.0+ is also dramatically increased speed of offline altitude compute,

I guess elevation calculation speed increased as well, and if so, that means it needs low CPU power.
So, I would like to ask again the possibility to activate "map_items_selection_line_value_below=4" in config.cfg.

Hello ta-ka,

oki, let's give this parameter second chance ;). So in next version.

Thanks!

I usually show elevation value under 'line to GPS' with map_items_line_to_gps_value_below=4 in config.cfg. As far as I understand the elevation value is calculated by
    1) before GPS fix: (SRTM height at screen center) - (SRTM height at current location)
    2) afger GPS fix: (SRTM height at screen center) - (GPS height at current location).
The 2) sometimes gives strange elevation value because GPS height accuracy is usually poor. I think always calculate by 1) is better unless you are flying.

Good point!

Mainly not because GPS is inaccurate, but because altitude from GPS and altitude from SRTM should be quite different. Mainly if you don't have enabled corrections in Altitude manager. So it make sense, to have both ends of lines in same "Altitude system".

I've changed it, so now both points will be always computed from SRTM.

Good :)

One tiny issue in GPS screen. If GPS is enabled or disabled by tapping sky view circle, the text written at the bottom button doesn't change.

thank you for a report and sorry for issues. Another problem in 2.2 only. Will be fixed in next version. Seems I'll have to release one more during next week ...

Not that I want to appear impatient, but I plan a biketour starting on friday so I have to do some preparation for that.
Can I expect a fixed version until thursday or do I have to think about alternatives? (I still have a free version installed but have not used it for years...)
Is there a simple method to step back to the previous version?
Thanks for all the good work!
shushuk

I too have a little problem with vector maps download from your server:
I have a Android 4.4.4 rooted with full r/w access to the extern SDCard1.

The main Locus dir is on storage/sdcard0 (= storage/emulated/0)
My map dir is on storage/sdcard1/Locus/mapsVector/...
If I download newer vector map versions from your server  then they all are stored in the (empty) mapsVector dir on the main directory.
So I have to copy the maps from SDCard0 to SDCard1.



Edit: In earlier versions I could see if there were updates available for my vector maps.

Hello tramp,

downloading vector maps to other then default folder was never possible. So there is no change. Some more customization of various directories is currently not possible at all, except main root folder.

Seems that 3.1 version will be my nightmare. I spend three full days by testing and fixing and now after update I again see some one star ratings because of "crash at start". Has anyone same experience? Thanks

I have started it a few times with different items visible and no problem on Xperia p, stock Ics.
However I can remember that I have seen once! a crash at start not so long ago but before the newest version. (Maybe a month ago, but then it started all right for the second time)
