But Menion, I don't want to have a dashboard button in the button bar (display of dashboards is bound to presets), but sporadically start the dashboard editor via the main menu...
EDIT: AH. List of dashboards can be accessed via main menu and EDIT is behind 3 dots. Good.
If a dashboard is visible, it turns it off only. Was a bit confusing at first.

missing "Submit" button should be nice = less support to solve :)
@menion - excellent, you guys deserve a long holiday ;-)

Hmm, are you sure about missing submit button? It appears once all required fields are set!

Switching between maps is something I do very frequently on the trail, most of the time toggling between OSM and a satellite map. I believe this is a very frequent operation in Locus, especially now that you have these gorgeous satellite maps in Gold without google hacks. Anyway, map changing has become a bit of a cumbersome multi-tap operation recently: tap on the map icon, tap on the current map name (feels a bit illogical here), find new map in the list, tap on new map name. One could probably put the quick map change function in a toolbar, but that doesn't make the tap orgy less complex really.

How about using a long tap on the map icon (currently unused) to toggle between the previously selected map and the current one? That would make things super-easy and fast if all you need is two maps, like OSM and Satellite.

Switching between two maps is simple. Just use the function "Overlay Map" with cover 100%. This can be turned on either a separate button or in the "Map screen" "click" Eye ".

Hello,
while recording a track, especially when I use locus for testing, it happens that I want to exit without saving.
Then I press the back button twice and the warning appears that there is a track being recorded.
If I touch the trash, the confirmation message appears, but once the ok is given Locus does not close, but returns to the map. So again back back to close Locus.
I think after confirmation of the cancellation it should close.

I suppose that would be twice as slow and eat twice as much battery for rendering. Or does the overlay handling have special optimizing for funky 0% and 100% use case?

Anyway, I use the overlay for different things (strava heatmap), so it wouldn't help my case. Locus still struggles big time with caching from the heatmap tile server btw, but that's a totally different story :-).

Long tapping the map icon (the two stacked rectangles bottom left) is unused so far and simply does nothing. Toggling between the last two maps seems like a reasonable action.

On a slower tab handling huge maps with the overlay feature, I found that even in a 100% setting the base map is rendered, then overlay on top.

@Menion: we discussed that years ago - why is that? 0/100 are special cases that can be identified trivially ...

@joeloc
I remember I wanted to save a long click on the "map content" for something "big", but for now, this is a nice idea, so let's try it ... thanks

@lor74cas
"especially when I use locus for testing" ... I have it sometimes the same, but ... I do not think there is the simple answer and an all-happy solution, sorry.

@michaelbechtold
I do not remember we discussed the performance of drawing overlay with 0 opacity, sorry. Anyway as you wrote > easy task, done, thanks.

@menion - ahh sorry - once the category is changed from default Uncategorized, then the Submit button appears. Is this new behavior? What if none of the categories are appropriate? Somewhat confusing; I think I would disable the Submit button rather than hide, or even better allow user to click Submit but then display an error message that a category must be selected. PS. I see the Submit button is still visible when Title, description & Application fields are empty, and clicking Submit then displays helpful messagebox "Please fill in the required fields".

MANY years back, Menion, and not very intense anyway ;-)

TXs and cheers

@Andrew Heard
agree it should be more user-friendly. To be true, I'm a little bit lazy to cross-post problems on the https://help.useresponse.com website :P

@michaelbechtold
100%  :D ... fortunately I do not have to care about this case. Overlay vector maps have a disabled background so there is a high chance, that the base map will be necessary as well ...

0% is obviously a simple case... 100% not so much. At least Locus would have to check if the overlay map data comes with an alpha channel. I use a 100% strava heatmap overlay quite often and obviously, the basemap still has to be rendered.

i have folders with POI's i created myself, there are no geocaches inside them!

If none of these POI's is displayed and I click on the icon in front of the folder name I get in the selection > filter fav10/50
