Friday afternoon, definitelly worst time to publish a new version. But navigation problem see to be critical issue.

So new version 3.38.6, just generates. Thanks for the quick test. Wish me luck ...

Next week, I'll try to focus mainly on bug-fixing so I'll for sure give some feedback on the more or less minor issues you reported here. And also on remaining navigation issue, thanks @0709.

@Henk van der Spek
at least weird issue with navigation on your track should be fixed. Other issues with navigation itself ... next week. Sounds complicated :).

@john_percy
"overlay icon" fixed thanks

@balloni55
nice steps for a weird issue with the world map, thanks!
- the issue with autoloading happens to me once and then never more again
- the issue with selecting world map and then selecting any other LoMaps happens always. Help here is to select a map theme. But why this happens even after an hour is not clear to me, crazy. I'll look at it more precisely next week.

@T-mo
1. why "Optimize raster map resolution" settings do not fit your needs? Raster maps are then rescaled too much? Rescale by DPI use floating point values, but in most cases, it will end on integer value for raster maps. For vector maps, the situation is different and there it is always floating point value that more precisely match device DPI.
2. hmm, I'm checking code and app should list all directories in mentioned mapsVector/_themes directory and in every directory search for *.xml files. XML files in the root of the _themes directory should be ignored. Maybe you may zip me _themes directory that does not work as you expect and share it with me? Thanks.

Weird issue is GONE in 3.38.6 pro  :)
This version is definitely faster on my device. Start-up and scrolling and zooming.
Auto map loading V4 maps is working. Top bar name tag does not change accordingly.

Have a nice weekend.

New version 3.38.6, again a first test on the couch: The navigation with multiple via points and endpoint priority works now. :D Thanks menion!

So good news, nice.

I see in crashlytics (system for automatic collecting crashes) few crashes when using vector maps as overlays right after the start of the app. Hope it's just a few rare users ... otherwise, app looks pretty stable.

I also did last days few performance optimizations so hope, it will be fluent and usable like at early days :). Enjoy weekend!

Zooming in and out is extremely slow when map rotation is turned on.

Since some weeks geocaching live doesn't work in route planer.  :(

So I have no chance to see all the possible caches while planning a route.

Rescale by DPI use floating point values, but in most cases, it will end on integer value for raster maps. For vector maps, the situation is different and there it is always floating point value that more precisely match device DPI.
I just realise that magnify might not be the thing to use, %-values etc. And I use some raster maps. So I have on and off and both are not suberb to me, as often in life it could be something between, more personal taste or preference. So I still ask myself why I have on and off instead of values or possibilites, quantised steps between maybe.

btw. I often asked myself why 'settings>controlling>map screen>tap and hold to display adress' is not 'tap and hold x secs to display adress', I tap way to often and then tap stuff away... I train myself to make it getting less
2. hmm, I'm checking code and app should list all directories in mentioned mapsVector/_themes directory and in every directory search for *.xml files. XML files in the root of the _themes directory should be ignored. Maybe you may zip me _themes directory that does not work as you expect and share it with me? Thanks.
see pics attached. If I put Elevate and VoluntaryUK in separate directories - which is not intended by Tobias or John I guess but by me ;D - both are not usable. The current way is working perfectly and - honestly - still ok, as working, but maybe this can be optimised, each theme-package would have a dedicated directory. Seems like I missed Elevate4.3.1 since 1 week btw :P

@locus.sv@heime.org
then there have to be something, that slow it down. A huge number of points, tracks visible at once?

@jonny.blue
I'm aware of this issue, sorry for this. Needs more work and testing, so till next 3.39, I'll for sure look at it.

@T-mo
current values are chosen to have as close as possible style of raster and vector maps. So in most cases, texts should be the same size for same zoom levels etc. Of course, it highly depends on the map (mainly raster) theme. So I would like to keep it simple.

Map themes ... as I wrote, Locus Map checks for xml files in one subdirectory level. You placed xml files into second subdirectory level (relative to "_themes" directory), so Locus Map is unable to find it.

Quick check of the map magnification of vector maps. Looks lime it works again as I expect it. As in older versions.
I am not having a degree in Locus so I must admit I did not understand our honorable padavan Menion, who taught us it was already good in the last version 😁 Well, books have been written about map magnification.

 ... really funny is that: how it works in recent version is exactly the same as it worked in previous (at least from the developer point of view) except one tiny detail ... the map immediately displays (zoom in/out) result of "magnify" change.
Well ... fine, one part of bigger problems solved, uff :)

I did a lot of v4 map switching and they all load quickly. No white boxes etc. I am happy about the vector map system again. There's just that text bug (cut text) on first load of area, as John already mentioned. Thx for your hard work!

I wonder for some time already, when I use the magnifying glass button, why it keeps the original zoom scale ?

Would not be better to display the scale the map has after zooming ?

Or, not to display it at all, instead of being wrong ?

they will be hopefully wrapped in some wiki knowledge....  :-)

Menion, if Smooth Interface is off, "Fill map gaps" has no effect, is that intended? I think it worked once, so we had map gaps filled, minus the smooth transition effects. I'd prefer it this way.

@menion
Is resolving the double contour line bug in your to do list? I find it a real pain.

A minor one:
In the data manager, tracks oberview, long tap to the left, on a preview picture, does not create a preview. If one is there, it deletes it. v4 map + totm theme.
