OK, thanks for clarifying @menion & @slarti76. Should that therefore mean a "default" preset is initially created with all the relevant/ current settings?

To final version, I'll prepare two or three ready-to-use presets, that will simplify start of using of this feature.

A question unrelated to presets: has anyone else noticed that with hardware compass enabled map rotation orientation filter has no effect? Whether I have heavy filter or no filter, it makes no difference, the map is rotating as if there is no filter. This behavior seems very recent. I normally use heavy filter but is not working. Could it be related to presets? I can't think of any other change. Quite confusing. Thanks for any suggestions.

My feedback regarding the presets-feature:

I'm ok with the way it's implemented now. This way the settings currently in use are consistent with what the main settings menu shows (at this time). You (the user) just have to keep in mind that some settings can be changed from what you set up in the main settings when a preset is "executed".

I must admit, I first was confused about how to set up a preset, even to the point I thought it didn't work on my phone (or maybe it actually wasn't in the first version?). It took me a while to realise that it's a two-step process of first selecting which settings should be available in the preset, and then the actual setting. But I think this is only a matter of headline/description/help texts...

So I'm looking forward to also having themes, dashboard activation, permanent display on and display activation settings available. Also, preset execution when starting track record with a specific recording profile would be nice!

Hi,
so new Beta version is out. Suggest to delete existing "Presets" (if you will try this feature again), so you have better feel of whole setup workflow :). Otherwise thanks all for a valuable feedback. I cannot satisfy everyone, but I at least try to find something ... between.

3.21.1.5 Presets: with GPS disabled I notice each time I change preset the map is moved to the last GPS position (in this case on tablet it is position from a month ago).

Nice to have map themes now included.

Because each preset can have own independent set of settings I imagine could cause user confusion. Seems user will generally need to have settings identical in each preset (for example I am testing with 3 presets Cycling/ Driving/ Default). There is not going to be large number of settings to choose from so could the initial choosing of set of settings be removed - each preset just has all possible settings? User simply decides on the value of each setting.

Could the list of presets be "moved up one level" for faster access - display each preset in "More functions" rather than More functions > Presets. Or even faster access via Quick settings?

Since beta 3.21.1.4 locus does not remember the last used offline vector map at the end, it is displayed after a restart always the last used online map. My vector maps lie in a subdirectory "OpenAndroMaps".

For me, it would be nicer to have map styles as well as themes included.

There is not going to be large number of settings to choose from so could the initial choosing of set of settings be removed - each preset just has all possible settings? User simply decides on the value of each setting.
That change would need a three-position switch (on | off | no change) for each setting which is what the present arrangement achieves.

+1 map style setting in addition to theme selection would definitely be nice, as many themes are a combination of multiple styles these days.

Thanks for including dashboards into the presets!

Will there be a possibility to execute a preset based on active navigation? This way I could automatically use a more cleaner dashboard when I'm not navigating, and one with nav track elevation profile display when navigating.

Point detail > Map apps > Streetview is not working at present. It goes to current position on Google maps and notifies Streetview is not available here.
If I choose Google maps from Locus point detail instead and drop a pin, Streetview works.
I guess Google has changed something.

yes, I suggested this a few days earlier. The present arrangement is a 2-step process - 1) select settings, 2) decide on overriden value. Instead there could be a single list. For boolean settings there could be a 3-way button, but for more complex settings this wouldn't work. A checkbox to override the setting and the actual setting control may be simpler to explain/ more intuitive for users than the current process.

Heavy hardware compass orientation filter setting is now working again in latest beta.

When a preset is selected I think it would be nice to be quickly returned to the main screen. At present the More Functions screen is displayed.
