Hi Menion,
I uninstalled the latest beta because it forced me to confirm the INTERNAL private /Android/data folder.
Although the external SD has 36 GB free space, while the internal SD has only 9 GB available.
The current /Locus consumes 41 GB - internal SD.

So, how would Locus act in detail in such a situation, ps?

In earlier betas it would complain about missing free space. But as I could not risk Locus beta damaging my current install, I went back to the beta before, which works fine.

Can you please advise?

TXs and cheers
Michael

PS: in particular, will Locus be able to MOVE the files from /Locus (good), or will you need to COPY them (very bad) ? Why? It doubles the space requirements and will block / disable future Locus use.

Yeah, details will be interesting. Fortunately I have already done it, I guess it was some mix of Locus doing it and me moving files with TotalCommander...
What you will have to do is put it into "private dir" on internal or secondary SD (/Android/data/..) at some point because Android 11... and you can store MapsVector and SRTM on both places.
This type of change will unfortunately eat tons of support resources... for ages I guess. Thx Google.

The About page on my phone (4.4.3) says in red, "DUPLICATE FOLDER"

Do I dare touch anything?

I haven't used any betas recently, but did get surprised one day by a question about folders.  Um, I dunno, click, go away.  Now this.  The new file system manager says I'm using internal storage, not internal memory.  (Internal vs internal?!?)  EDIT: investigation tells me that both are the same folder, aliased.  Is the end user expected to know about this?

But things are working (in spite of not "recommended" folder), so tell me, app, why should I change?

Unhelpful track stats - I don't have a heart rate or cadence sensor. Display N/A (Not Available) or better, don't display if N/A or even better, allow configuration.

Hmm... it doesn't show me those sensor stats (which is good).

Sorry guys. I'm late to the 4.4 party.

In 4.4.3.2 Menion added support for seperated center and rotate button.
The setting is in "expert".
But where is the this expert settings page ?
Might not be my best day today but looked through the whole settings without luck.
Anyone can give me a hint?

I found it as the second topic of the maps section in expert settings.
You can also go into settings top page and then search for "dual".

Is there a switch to enable "expert".
Searching "dual" in settings found nothing.

Thanks, found it.

Another interesting topic for me.
Now it's possible to create a link for routes  to share with friends. Great.

But it doesn't provide the possibility to download the gpx, right?
It just shows route on map?

Did I missed this Feature?
If not. Could you add this?
(Today I need to send gpx via email which feels quite old school)

@tapio - that's weird isn't it - you seeing something different to me.

I thing you missed it. When I select a track or any other route, the context menu offers a "share as gpx". The tools available then depend on the staging of your smartphone (apps).
