Hi
@balloni55
what is the problem with themes? On both screenshots should be same map & same theme? If so, then it looks like some map overlay, isn't it possible?

Problem with Geocaching logging is interesting. May you check it home on wi-fi with some tool like GlassWire and in the best case, check-in which moment this "data suck" happens? It is definitely unexpected and unwanted behavior which maybe results of big history or number of items in your inventory? Can't say for sure for now ...

@erfi
thanks, should be fixed

@tapio
nice screen-lock, thanks too :).

@john_percy
"share" from which app? Just tried quite test from Google Maps and seems to work ok for me.

upps, you are right a online map overlay was switched on...

The app was Wild Guide to SW England...
But the behaviour was clearly different for beta and Pro, and clearly reproduceable.

Edit: When I try to share a location from Google maps to Locus beta, Locus crashes.

@balloni55
why is the problem with geocaching solved? Found something useful?

@john_percy
I think I've found a minor issue, will be fixed. Thanks for pointing on this problem.

I think that the data consumption was caused by the online map overlay being switched on.
but I'll be watching.

i was surprised that when using some track recording profiles with BETA the track was recorded but the line was not shown on the map.
After checking, I noticed that some of my profiles didn't have a "Track recording line style" in the BETA after update :-\
When clicking on  "Track recording line style" it takes about 10-15 seconds until the window for setting the line style opens, in PRO it takes 3-4 sec.

Next, I realized that the number and settings of the recording profiles in PRO and BETA are different. But this seems to be intentional.

The beta spoke to me in Czech (again)!
The reason appears to be that  the English option has disappeared in Locus both for system language and TTS, and been replaced by English US.
Google TTS knows I want UK English but Locus doesn't even offer the option.

Awesome new Beta, because you seem to have fixed the text problem over more than one tile! Haven't seen any more broken text yet!
Also, grey locked screen is fixed.

@balloni55
15 seconds is crazy. I tried it on my SGS2 and the same!! After whole afternoon testing, I found some weird issue in Android. So it is not ideal (just this screen, which is interesting), but should be definitely better.

The missing style for recording profiles is even more interesting ... btw. what does it mean "missing style"? There should be always "something". Even if the app lost this setting (which we know that rarely happens), there should be default line style (like when you create a new profile). ... ah maybe I know ... is it possible that your profiles were really really old? Hmm, I'll check it thanks.

And the number of "settings" different? Do not understand.

@john_percy
I do not understand why this "czech". Because primary (fallback) language is English and Czech has no priority compare to any other language. Anyway in the app was still small problem with setup of manually selected language over application. Try please new Beta if it helps.

@tapio
glad to read it :)

And neither have I found any broken text with the new beta. Well done.
More details regarding the spoken Czech bug: I had App Language set to Default system, and that gave me all the dialogues in English, fine. I started navigating and Locus gave me directions in spoken Czech. When I minimised Locus, the text directions in the notifications were also in Czech. (OK, maybe it wasn't Czech but it looked like it, with your special characters.) When I checked the TTS setting, the TTS language was Czech (Czechia). That comes top of the list, which may be why it is preferred. My setting in Locus Pro is simply English and the app picks up my choice in Android settings of English (United Kingdom). In the beta it doesn't do that. I've been forced to choose English (United States), the only available English variant.
Neither, by the way, does Locus beta seem to pick up the Android system settings for speech rate (and possibly other settings). Locus now speaks directions very rapidly in an American accent.
There is one factor which may possibly be relevant: I'm away from home and working on mobile data not WiFi and Android is set to only download TTS data on WiFi.

- exactly, the profiles which  had no line style have existed since the publication of profiles
- in PRO i have 7 different profiles, in BETA after last update only 5 are visible. After restart of my device this issue is gone, so solved

As others have mentioned, the .3 beta seems to have fixed the cut-off text problem, even with magnified (200%) text.  Thank you!

I think I might have seen one text label disappear as I panned it into view, but that might have been a brain problem on my part (coffee not fully absorbed), because I couldn't reproduce it.

But essentially, I consider this fixed.   8)

I'm disappearing into the Rockies now for a week and can't reply to anything, sorry.
