I use beta as it is installed. I try to give my usual settings what I have been using for many years. It's true that I did not change the compass setting. Let's see and try again. About an hour.

Beta version installed to you with this weird setting as default? Hope no! Have to check it, thanks.
This is very non-standard settings that should not be used for simple navigation experience.

Anyway I believe that last main remaining issue is not "blinking" tracks during navigation. I'll play with it tomorrow. Thanks for a patience Condor, I owe you.

Yes priority compass default!
I apologise. It's not in my abilities to check all settings for each installation beta. Especially those I have set for several years. Again, sorry.

Now everything seems to be OK. Even both GPS modes as well as the direction to calculate.

On that note, is there a simple way of copying all your customized settings for Pro over to Beta?  I couldn't find it by looking through the file structure.

I would use Beta more often if it acted just like my fine-tuned Pro.

@Viajero - I just do settings backup from main device > copy ZIP to testing device & restore

Thanks, but I meant, copying from Pro to Beta on the same device.  Maybe it'll work regardless.  I'll give it a try.

EDIT: that worked, thanks.  Had to restart the Beta twice, but then it worked.

+1 and it will be a better test if every tester uses his own settings instead of default. Default could be ok but some special setting no. I have no time to always apply pro settings to beta or to use backup as suggested by Andrew, I just go out and try new beta after update when I have time.

@lol74cas
But it would have to be a one-sided option to transfer PRO-BETA settings. Betta sometimes makes attempts with different settings and nobody wants to switch settings in the PRO.

I have no time

For me, backup function for both Locus Pro and Free (beta) is ok and fast.
Pro and Beta (TESTS running !) my settings are mostly slightly different.
Before Locus Free (Beta) update manualy backup last used settings.
After install restore. Eventually a restart. No problem.

I did not know that
1. anybody use default settings in Beta versions (I expected that every simply restore backup of settings from Pro when starts to use Beta versions)
2. it is a (time) problem to restore backup of settings

Hmm one app cannot simply touch to settings of another app, but if there will be interest, I believe it is doable to create "Restore from Pro version" button in BETA version.

It is not necessary, but it would be nice. Especially when testing in the wild, it would be easier to compare Beta and Pro behavior. After various attempts, it would be easy to return to the settings of Pro. However, it is just such a simplification tool, write it down on a list of things like: Sometimes it will be time.

Sometimes I lose rec profile or screen settings in beta. A simple way to "copy" the setup of the pro every time a new beta is released it's a great function for testers and you will be sure that not only the default settings is tested.

*** 3.30.3 ***
New version published, thanks all for a big help with testing! Believe this version will work fine. If not, I'm as usually ready to do some fine tuning ;).

Enjoy rest of Sunday.

The first time I installed Beta, I got default settings.

Now that I know of a simple way to copy Pro settings to Beta (backup/restore), I'm happy.  It's quick and easy - once you know about it.  Thanks.
