@Andrew Heard: did you tried latest Beta version?

@michaelbechtold: this will be complicated task, because yes, it may be some racing issue which is one most complicated problems that may happen. As @john_percy wrote, it rarely happen to me as well. I'll try to watch it more carefully, but for now, I cannot promise any quick fix, sorry.

@john_percy: about muting a sound .. I was thinking a while if this is a problem or not, but your are probably right, it should be muted as well. So consider it as fixed, thank you!

about new "Paddling" track record activity
'think "Paddling" is a label for: Kayaking, Canoeing, Stand Up Paddle (SUP)

Your icon "Paddling" is more "Canoeing"
Isn't it?

I just had an idea on how to "unify" the old "map elements" and the new "map layers". They are basically the same thing, having two completely different UIs for control should be avoided.

Why I do what? Adding various activities to this new system? Because I wanted to offer wider list of options then just hike, bike, walk. Anyway I because I personally do not see huge difference in "paddling" vs "canoeing" in terms of icon ... maybe someone who do this activity will be angry because of this (and it will be reason to improve it). Are you angry? :)

@Andrew: may you please export and share your track (GPX)? I oped this is already fixed, seems not ...

Hello menion
"notify battery optimisation on Android 6+"
- info text in popup window should describe better where battery settings are changed (device settings....)
on my device > Einstellungen/Akku/3-dot button/Akku-Leistungsoptimierung/Nicht optimiert

- after i´ve returned to battery optimisation in settings of my device, the the popup label didn´t apeare at start of locus.
bug or feature?

I just noticed around 5000 files in /Locus/cache/images... seem to be PNG files without .png ending. Who creates those? Panoramio layer? Geolocated pictures layer? And why PNG... didnt we find out that JPG is better on mobile? Just wondering where it comes from and if this is really neccessary. It puts a little strain on the file system and on everybody who plays with file-based backups or syncing Locus folders across devices... or just in general.

@0709: if I understand correctly, you wants to set name to generated "Via points" to something different? Current, points created during "Add new route" (for example) are named "Via points" (defined on crowdin as 'via_point'). This name also should be read during navigation with TTS. Text for this is defined as "pass_point" in tts files, so it's simply point name (defined as %s).

So summary:
- Locus name generated via points by translated text if point do not have own name, so usually "Via point"
- TTS generated command by "name after xx metres"

So what should I improve? If German translation of "Via point" is not the best for this generated command, should I add some other option to crowdin, like
- label in UI
- name of generated via point
right?

About "rtepointactions" - the list of actions was created when I started work on navigation system many years ago, based on actions in MapQuest navigation. Anyway some actions are not used at all for now, like this number 2 and 23. Both do absolutely nothing for now.

@balloni55: hmm isn't "Android system battery optimization" enough? Not sure if it's needed to specify it more. To be true, I think that various devices has this settings on various places and Locus has no possibility to find out exact place in devices settings.
Fact that you do not see this dialog again ... didn't you used "Don't ask again" checkbox?

@joeloc: this directory is used for caching of all downloaded images from internet in format, they are downloaded. Images from Panoramio and cached local photos in miniaturized version should be already cached on different place in /sdcard/Android/data/menion.android.locus/cache . Anyway 5000 is quite nice number ... seems I'll have to reduce some older files here as this may also slow down access to these files. Thanks for info

@gynta: well, I was probably tired from neverending discussion about private room in Live tracking we have in team. Otherwise I'm always on side of perfectionism (as far as my strength reached). So "Paddling" changed to "Canoeing", thanks :).

About search around other then map center location - seems that same problem is also in "Points", "Wiki", "Google Places". Small issue found and problem fixed, thank again!

hm it should appear in case, you have still ENABLED battery optimization.

Hmm, but when you re-install whole Locus, system should not remember this "battery optimization" settings. Interesting.
