QuoteAlso no support for the custom "srtm" and "mapsVector" directoryI'll also today finally publish the new Beta version where all these changes will be presented.
Quote from: 0709 on November 27, 2021, 09:11:29@ michaelbechthold.I agree with you that it is a dirty trick of Google that you cannot even share (large) osm maps which do not contain any sensitive data to be protected. That app developers can't even stand up to the giant means that the fourth realm already exists. Docile and obediently follow what is imposed, no resistance allowed.
Quote from: Menion on November 26, 2021, 23:25:08Menion, that is not what your users can expect from you.I am the most outspoken on that one - easy as a Locus user of many years and a comp.science person since 40 years.But you should be scared of the silent mass who is not even aware of the pot. tsunami hitting them.As a partial remedy you should establish the possibility to have both /Andoid/data locations used. Following Michal's point, the right approach would be to have the app function and performance critical parts on the internal private location, while the mostly readonly data like maps and SRTM and alike are allowed on external SD private folder as well.Then capacity INSIDE the Locus only world will not bite - users do not have to buy a bigger phone :-)My other challenges are not met, but for the mass of users above should be safe - and keep peace in the user base. And Asamm ...Good luck.CheersMichael
