One more thing about the Backup:
I still think that "Back up settings only" should backup data\dashboard and data\presets directories, too. To me, they're integral settings. Right now, when I do manual backups, I always do the full backup and then delete the data\database folder from the ZIP to save space.

In Beta 3.46.2.4. I can't restore settings from a backup created in the PRO version.

Yeah, had that problem, too, but wasn't sure if that's supposed to work...

The issue in backup restore found, thanks!

About content of settings-only backup: I'll think about it. Presets: right, they are some kind of settings. Dashboard are more a "content" than a setting...

I disagree, but also think that it's most important to include presets, especially as I (and most others, I presume) tinker with these regularly. Can live without including dashboards...

@slarti76 - I agree.

Question:
At OpenAndroMaps (https://www.openandromaps.org/) they're talking about more and more HighRes SRTM data being used (to allow altitude lines with 10m resolution).
As far as I can see, Locus still downloads the same HGT files as it did years ago, at least the size hasn't changed which strongly implies the resolution didn't improve.
Is there any chance that Locus downloads higher res data, too - where available? Or is there a source for HGT files to download and manually copy into the data/srtm directory? If Locus can use that at all?!

Hi slarti76,
you can find the LIDAR based DTMs at http://data.opendataportal.at/dataset/dtm-austria
I doubt Asamm would volunteer to host the 25MB/piece data ...
Cheers
Michael

Thx! I manually tried the Swiss ones.
Good thing is, it works flawlessly with Locus. You can see the resolution is better, especially if you turn on Slope Shading, which shows more details. Simple Map Shading is also a little more detailed, but not enough to justify 10x the size.
Mountain peaks are also still not very exact, I spot-checked some and usually saw 5-15m less than the official SwissTopo says.

So, I have to admit that it's probably not worth the hugely increased space requirement.
In the end, the better data is best used in OAM, where they now have 10m contour lines instead of 20m, which definitely improves the usefullness in the mountains and moves them closer to official maps.

Stable branch, there is still the issue we discussed earlier, save a track from route planner, enter route planner from this track again: it only remembers start and endpoint 😕
Still don't know why it happens sometimes, sometimes not.
