Hi menion,

do you remember sudden phone restarts i had during downloading maps? They were phone related, not your app. This known issue with htc desire phones, restarting when cpu reaches around 35C. Sorry for that. It may help explain future issues from htc desire locus users. My phone is in repair for MoBo change, until then i'm off unfotunately from reporting problems and testing your great app. thanks

hmm fine thanks. True is that map download is CPU intensive action (every downloaded tile is converted into bitmap to check if is image correct and all this in five threads ...). Fine, thanks!

Is there possibility to limit cpu while downloading, or give it low priority? I know it is bit crazy idea... don't worry about it if it is too much work... cheers

Impressive release 1.5.1:
- this release is really of high quality. All the issues I reported on 1.4.x have been fixed. Only one small exception:
- still open issue: POI alert, should play sound (user selected sound) until manually stopped. Refer my last post under version 1.4.x, dated 14/4, where I also posted an idea how this couold be done.

Hi menion,
I just updated my Locus Pro to 1.5.2 version without checking your note, I just think it wont be that serious  :cry: .
Is there any possibilitys to downgrade version back to 1.5.1?
I loved Eniro map that were on 1.5.1 version and I would like to get it back.
Otherwise this is great application  :D

Hi, menion!
The only thing which has changed in version 1.5.1 -> 1.5.2 is a maps removing?

Both 1.5.1 versions here (free and pro), are they expiring on a specific date or are they the market versions?

so new version for testing with bunch of new features. Support for http://mapbox.com/ maps ... also please check this - viewtopic.php?f=10&t=501. This may be interesting for those, who use track records. I'm also interested to add OSGB36 support, so please anyone check topic with this theme.

Edit: also info for you. I already wrote to almost half of map providers. So we'll see if any response come back. Biggest problem will be with google (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/m ... 0d5328371f). They have no chance for developers to use their map outside of web browser or their pre-prepared android component, which is useless for me ...

Hi Menion,

it's great that you continue, after the maps problem! With google ... I wonder about other android programs, who also show GoogleMaps. I was using Maverick a lot before Locus came out and they also offer a lot of maps to choose from. However there's no possibility to download the maps directly from there (it only caches the visited tiles). That's why I like Locus! It still would be great if you could show GoogleMaps (legally), which probably means that you disallow downloading maps from there, but just showing. Maverick is out for quite some time, so if they can then you also might me able, right?
