ahhh sorry, I'm stupid. That's a mistake not a new feature. Downloading along track is available in Pro as a new feature. Old downloading along newly defined path have to work in free also ... sorry :)

you're welcome. When you anytime notice that something what was in free isn't working as free now, let me know!! It's a mistake :)

And I do not changed anything in downloading algorithm. I had one restart during Locus once, but two also in another software and once only during switching home screen so I think this is just some stability problem of android system.

Congratulations Menion, with your latest release 1.3, Again a lot of new features and improvements just blow me away! Where is this going to end? You have fixed the info placement on the guiding line, fixed the guiding jump to next point when within a certain distance, selectable sound type, improved POI search, included new map sources, beautiful new satellite window, new track chart display (even live update on track being recorded), user selectable panel hiding timeout. Again, congratulations with a great release!!

Hi Menion,
thanks a lot for the release :-) One thing I have seen:

- If I record a track and
- then change into the great chart view (while recording),
- then switch between speed / altitude
- then jump back to the map view,
--> the map isn't following the current position anymore...

I have seen this in @ 1.2 too.

Hello

How am I supposed to install this version? Should I first uninstall the old version? Or is it possible to install this version over the previous one?
I don't want to loose my offline maps. My preferred way is to install it via the market by the way.

Thanks and sorry for being off topic.

Just install newer over the previous (via market too). I did it without any problems (loosing my offline maps) a few times.
If you are using an older version 0.9.x I think, give Locus time to initialize (for me up to 15 minutes the first time).

OK, I will install it over the previous one. I am using v1.2.

Upgrading never makes problems. But do a backup of your data when you go back to an older version. Just to be sure!

This leads me to question what to backup. :)  Is it sufficient to backup the sdcard/Locus/maps folder only? At present I have only some offline maps.
Perhaps there is a manual in which this procedure is described.

i'm usually saying when something changed in database. So read carefully first post if there is something about it. If not, backup is not needed at all. Anyway I suggest from time to time, to backup whole Locus dir (if you do some testing with version from forum)
