Where is the Track recording widget ?
« on: June 05, 2020, 11:52:38 »
Hi,
Question from a dummy : I have Locus Map Pro and I can't find the widget for track recording (I find the classical recording interface only). Where can I launch it ?
Thanks !

The widget is available only when Locus Map Pro root directory is stored in the internal memory of the device.

Locus Pro 3.50.1

Ah thanks Willy. We have to correct this in our manual.

Not the root directory of Locus Map has to be in internal memory, but the installation of the app itself. So in case, your device has SD card, the app has to be installed in internal memory.

It works well now. But I didn't understand the interest of it. Since I have Locus map open to follow the navigation along a route, I didn't get the interest of lauching the recording from outside of the app. What do people like usually with the widget ?

There are situations, you want to quickly start recording without even starting the app or using navigation. Many people = many special use-cases  ;)
