If "Don't ask again" checkbox in Filesystem chooser is unchecked, Locus doesn't remember users choice of Locus directory at next Locus Launch. There are two cases.  Please see videos below.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/smbavv56htq87fv/20150126_locus_directory_1.mp4?dl=0
https://www.dropbox.com/s/p7zhppowq933mrk/20150126_locus_directory_2.mp4?dl=0

By the way, while the directory chooser at Locus startup lists only writeable directories, the directory chooser in Locus settings lists a lot of read-only directories, too.  Obviously some of them, like /system, /efs, /cache... are needless to show.

Same here with pro 3.5.3 and free 3.5.3.3
But in pro there is no preference point for popups!
i think you missunderstood ;) , menions question was related to #98

Sorry, my post refers to the missing compass feature in popup menu.

Vectormap:
Icon size by zooming from 11 -> 12 is different as from 13 -> 12 is.
See clip..
Setting (200% in this example) was ignored

@ta-ka: thanks, but I think, what you describe is not a problem, but it's how it works. Because when Locus finds, during a start, more then one Locus directory, and "Don't ask" wasn't used, it offers list of directories and the biggest one is preselected as a best candidate. List of read-only directories - hmm yes, there should be improvements, agree. But I think that this feature is for really advanced users, so I do not see a big problem here either.

@gynta:
#108: suggest bigger screen ;)

#109: hmm aren't icons at start just a draw on a map and after zoom, they load from offline POI database? It's looks so on first sight, so issue should be more that they do not load also at start

#110: thanks, I probably noticed something similar. Progress bar stopped somewhere in the middle and not continue after screen turned on. It's reproducible and I already had this in TODO list, just not yet fixed.

#111: thanks, fixed

#113: hmm I'm unable to simulate it. May you please create for me a lot right after first attempt? Thanks

#114: hmm, it's how it always worked  ???

Ah, I understood. Locus suggests the biggest directory. It makes sense.
About read-only dirs in list, I agree no big problem, just annoying a bit.
Thanks for explanation :)

EDIT:
I noticed that, in altitude manager, horizontal lines to separate setting items are missing.

Fine ...

about lines - expect quite a lot of inconsistence between various Locus screen in next release. I'm trying to find an united style for a whole app and some screens react on global changes correctly so don't. So result is, that not all screens use same style for same components. But I'll one after another improve it ...

It's not a "start problem".

@menion
May I confirm which is better for you about UI inconsistency feedback from user, for now?
A) Report is always welcome.
B) Postpone the report until stable version release.

because of many changes, I think best should be wait till next! release version. Now in Friday will be published 3.6.0, which will still contains a lot of know UI problems. Version 3.7.0 should be UI perfect, so wait on official BETA, so something like 3.6.X.X, thanks :).

Locus has too many screens and dialogs and because not all react in same way on UI changes, I need to check precisely one by one ...
