Faster indeed and (to my positive surprise) Locus shuts down correctly again by back button. Also with active guiding or navigation it works correct now. (With active navigation you get the standard alert).

Info: with the 3.48 versions Locus stayed active with visible gps symbol and I had to swipe it away in the last used apps screen to really stop it. This happened on my Android 7 and on my wife's Android 10.

So, allthough this is not mentioned in the "change/fix" list, this is a good thing.

For me unfortunately only in the LM free version or before that in the LM4 beta, in the LM pro version it is unfortunately exactly as before. What can I do so that this much better map chaching is also active in the LM pro version?

For me the same, I rated it with 5 stars at the time. You can ask again for people who rate less than x. But for people with 5 this is not necessary and annoying.

Configuration:
: GPS in LM Pro is always on (with an entry in cfg)
: Location service is handled in Android settings (on/off global)

If you start LM Pro and _than_ switch on Location service , LM Pro will never get an satellite signal. LM Pro has to be shut down and restarted. Means, LM Pro needs an activated GPS from the beginning. Not nice :(

@Christian
that's what i asked myself when i saw the message. :o
to be honest it was me :P
It is often problematic to interpret the context of the text string in "Crowdin" correctly.
Yesterday I revised the translation, I hope to have saved an understandable text in good german now.
By the way, everybody can contribute to the translation !

I'm surprised that some of you noticed any performance improvements when working with the map. I made some changes, but mainly in the area around the app start. Hmm  ::)

@Henk van der Spek
Same answer as with the previous sentence :). I made no changes here, just updated few Google based libraries, so it looks like "fixed as a side-effect".

@balloni55, @freischneider
Well, the app does not know (there is any method for this), if you (the user) really voted or not. I made some testing and discovered that the very hidden "rate us" button was really useless. So change is, that the app asks the user for a rating on Google Play (that already use app for some time) after successful track recording. You should be able to rate directly in a small popup in the app, does it happen?

I believe this is not a big problem if the app asks once for rating also users, who already rated :). We see a mega-positive change in the number of votes on Google Play, so thanks you are not angry because of this tiny change ;).

@Christian
I'll look at it, thanks.

Please remind me how to view my BRouter BRF profiles in the Navigation > BRouter settings > Routing profile list?

I can confirm the BRF files have been coped
from /brouter/profiles2
to Locus/data/brouter/profiles2/
and from the spanner menu I have Advanced settings checked
but the Routing profile list only contains built-in Locus profiles.

My profiles that had used BRouter have all been set to Car-Eco.
Won't this be an issue for anyone that used BRouter profiles in 3.48?

The new directory for custom profiles should be "Locus/router/profiles". This directory should be already created by Locus Map upon start. Old Locus/data/brouter directory is no longer used.

How is the routing data (segments) updated in the new internal system?
