@voldapet: It now appears in the Store but doesn't appear under Ordnance Survey in the list of online maps in map manager.

Whoaa, what a nice Beta version 3.18.9.4 !! Enjoy it ;)

@jusc: crazy hacks because it it not officially supported method and because Locus has absolutely no effect on what happen in this file. It's content is automatically re-generated after every single app install/update. Sorry, cannot help here.

@menion,
I just installed fresh Locus free (Beta).
It says external storage is read only. This is not true, because my crazy hack works for Locus Pro at least at the moment. So what can I do?
I wonder, that nobody else uses Android 6.01 with a custom rom?!



at Google Play in ratings somebody else wrote the same.

@jusc I do not know how to do this automatically, really. I'm not using any custom rom and about this method I've read few times, but never checked more deeply, why and how it works, sorry. Anyway as I wrote, app itself cannot do anything here (maybe I'm wrong, so please correct me).

About version ...news, weird. Do you have version 3.18.9.4? Maybe it was not yet ready for download in your country so it downloaded previous 3.18.9.2.

long click measurement two fingers, nice feature :)
Code: [Select]
map_items_selection_line_value_below=0if this value is set to 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 always elevation is displayed
i noticed that direction - + of elevation value depend on which finger of both hit first on display

I agree, great and simple to use feature.

It appears under "OSM - Other" even in the new beta, which claims to have corrected the attribution. It's nothing to do with OSM.

3.18.9.4 beta: Locus/ BRouter Fast & Short car profiles have Unpaved checkbox, but Fast/ Cycle/ Walk profiles only have Wet Conditions checkbox. Unpaved checkbox is absolutely desirable for these latter 3 profiles too. And maybe Walk profile could use Wet Conditions checkbox. Why inconsistency?

"Absolute time when sun will rise/fall" - nice! But why does my tablet display correct sunset time, but phone displays "unknown"?

Andrew, Locus GUI config for BRouter profiles can offer only parameters, that are exposed by the chosen profiles. Neither standard, neither my bike profiles offer absolute avoidance for unpaved roads like car profiles, for quite good reasons. You may want to stay with Fastbike profile, or my template e.g. with MTB_factor -2.0.

Walking in urban/near urban mixed surface network could make use of Wet Conditions, but generally, the parameter is probably less useful for hiking. See also https://github.com/poutnikl/Brouter-profiles/wiki/Iswet_flag. The parameter is exposed, so it can be used.

When a user digs profiles up from the GitHub repositories,
they will be hopefully wrapped in some wiki knowledge....  :-)

observation while playing with 2-finger distance measure
https://www.dropbox.com/s/h7q02erd0fl64yx/2%20finger.mp4?dl=0

sec 7-14 > measure line disapears if line is horizontal

sec 17 > if i leave locus by accident, distance line is visible after i return to locus. When i zoom out, maploading is blockd till i do next 2-finger touch > sec 28

OK, so Locus scans each profile for exposed parameters & displays as list . This would explain the Locus delay in changes with the UI - reading/ writing the (pro)file. Clearly, absolute avoidance of unpaved roads is not desirable, and may result in huge detour, although it could be argued the user can also view the proposed route from each checkbox state and make own decision, but surely hint from user for increased cost to selection of unpaved roads would be nice, and operates with similar logic/ consistency to Wet Conditions.

AFAIK, Locus for now uses just a priori chosen set of exposed parameters, so it is not dynamic.
The user has wider options to choose profiles with predefined numeric parameters, or tweak the parameters directly if he wants. It provides much finer tuning of profile behaviour than flipping flags. It is like the continuous tuning of radio volume being better than High/Low volume switch.

action after "found it"
good solution for users who donĀ“t use FN ;)
one idea to keep better overview, is it possible to use "green marked smiely" for uploaded geocaches also in this folder?

If not mentioned yet for last stable version:
Sometimes when using "add route & measure" the route is not computed. I have to change the profile and back than the route is computed. Seems that the choosen profile is not taken properly for computation.

If "advanced setting" in profiles in "add route & measure" is activated (but "iswet" not choosen)  the route is sometimes not computed or in a senseless way.
