On a couple of occasions recently, the cross hair "centre" of screen has been shifted up to the top quarter. I've never seen this before
I have "shift the centre when rotation set on" on. On both occasions, rotation was off.
Sorry, can't find what steps are needed to reproduce it.
Turning rotation on then off seems to clear the bug.

Really only navigation waypoints are excluded. I do not see serious reason to exclude also manually created own waypoints.
Well a) I think it is just logical. A track is the trackpoints and optional embedded waypoints. A tool could provide to leave them out on export. This is the more Locus= "Swiss Army Knife" point of view.
b) I mentioned why it could be useful. In BRouter web you can upload/view multiple GPX. Useful to have an overview on where I already was. So if the tracks have WP, the view is cluttered with them.
Thx for fixing direct WP delete.

@john_percy
I've an idea why this may happen, so in the next version, this should not happen anymore, thanks!

@tapio
better discuss in an appropriate topic on help desk. Anyway, the main idea was about better support for Garmin devices, that have problems with a huge number of waypoints. Web Brouter is not a good argument for me. I consider the mentioned web page as a nice tool for geeks, but not for the basic users. We are also building own web planner, so ...
Ideas, wishes, problems
Advanced topics, public discussion, sharing of knowledges, testing beta versions: you're here!

In the main menu -> "More functions" -> ... -> "+ Add to map s..."
I honestly couldn't tell where "map s" is. Now I see, it's "Map screen" and what is meant is the toolbar.

->Full text could at least be shown when in landscape mode, but it seems to have a fixed length.

Still incorrectly getting "Nothing to display" on map screen content menu from time to time. Second screenshot is correct behaviour.
Obviously I can't change the theme in the first case.

Start recoeding via intent works, but the stop is being ignored. On stop Locus says, the recording profile "Wandern" is not active.

Start:
tasks: { track_record  : { action: "start", name: "Wandern", auto_save: true } }

Stop:
tasks: { track_record  : { action: "stop", name: "Wandern", auto_save: true } }

Just saying. I now leave out the name on stop, its better this way anyway.

Does anybody else have the problem that auto-save sometimes doesn't use the correct folder? I mean, if a recording profile has an auto-save folder set, it will sometimes still save in the last used folder.
Dunno yet how to reproduce it, so just asking around if I'm the only one who experiences this...

Will use it for my recording from now on and keep that in mind. Also using auto saving with preset folder, plus auto export gpx to file system.

I renamed my recording profile, but Locus still remembers its initial theme, is there a reason for this?

Recording related issues.

a) Does not remember the chosen recording profile, picks the first one
b) Intent for recording start does not use the desired recording profile
c) Has been mentioned: does not auto save into predefined database folder

Menion, I just realised that the most frequent question, if following a route and out in the wilds, is not answered by Locus directly:

"Wait. What's the (on track) distance from here until... the next hut?"

This simple question comes up so often... Somebody asks you "how far until...?" The answer could be presented in the trackpoint popup or in the new point info.

Currently I do the maths with values which are presented. E. g. (targets distance from start) minus (currentpos distance from start).
