Would it not be possible to divide Locus databases into several parts according to data folders? Personally, I store data in folders according to dates. I look at old data only occasionally, and loading the entire data file (800 Mb) unnecessarily burdens Locus. It would also solve the synchronization, because the data files would be much smaller.

CZ: Nebylo by možné databáze Locusu rozdělit do více částí podle složek s daty? Osobně si ukládám data do složek podle letopočtů. Do starých dat se dívam jen ojediněle, a načítání celého datového souboru (800 Mb) zbytečně zatěžuje Locus. Vyřešilo by to i synchronizaci, protože by datové soubory byly mnohem menší.

As I wrote above, I also would like to see folder-based sync. But I think that has to be done on DB-level - a file-based approach has all kinds of inherent problems, eg. what happens if you rename an existing database? If you rename the file also, it's hard to sync the correct db on the other side. If not, you run into problems if you create a new folder with the old name. And so on.
No, I assume if we get syncing of DB-parts, it must be done programmatically by the syncing algorithm.

I recently installed the latest version from this thread. This morning, when I started Locus, I found that the normal (non pro) version from the store had been installed (or "updated"?).

How can I prevent that from happening? I'd like to stay on the Locus Map 4 version.

Thanks.

open playstore/my apps > open LM FREE/ 3-dot top right/ disable " Enable auto-update"

of course

thanks a lot.

but...

it still shows up in the list of apps that can be updated in play store. and when I push the "Update All" button, it would "update" it as well. So — no, this won't work for me 😭

LM4 & LM3-free both share the same app ID (for better or worse). You can only have one or the other installed, not both. Your choice.

As far as I can see, the fact that they share the same id means that Google play store offers you updated versions of lm3free if you have lm4 alpha.

yes, that's true. I don't want LM3 and I want Google Play Store to leave the LM4 alone. But as the id is identical and as the version number of LM4 is lower than the one of LM3, Play Store will "update".

there is no choice for the user, sadly.

Devs, could you release a new version of LM4 with a higher version number? Something like 3.50, or so? That would be great

as mentioned you can turn off auto updates

in the same way, I only manually update LM3 free when a Beta version is released for testing

As mentioned, this won't stop Play Store from updating, when the "Install all updates" button is pushed. And as my phone, for whatever reason, often has a long list of pending updates (at the moment: 14), I kind of have to push that button.

Does auto update not work on your phone, or do you choose not to use it?

I update manually particular updates only. Different app ID would be nice, but I can live with that .

it works, most of the time, but every so often gets stuck, it seems. it is enabled.

Creating new version for Google Play with unique ID is currently not possible. It is still not a serious problem as automatic updates may be disabled etc. It will be interesting little later when Locus Map 4 will be officially published and I'll still need somehow provide versions for the testing. We will see ...

Once you press "Install all", an X appears to the right of each app being updated. Simply press the one at LM4 and that's it. That's how I do it in those cases, only needs one additional tap...
