Quote from: Andrew Heard on March 15, 2023, 04:27:49I'd like to see the phone accelerometer used for motion/ stopped detection.
Wasn't that tried, and it turned out it couldn't be done reliably due to Google?

@slarti76 - I think @Menion used an Android API to access motion status, but not specifically the accelerometer. I have 2 other apps - motion-based bike alarm, and ZTest sensors test which both work perfectly well for detecting when stopped.

main suggestion https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/improved-stop-detection-and-distance-calculation-with-a-speed-sensor, idea from 4 years ago, 24 votes, menion last wrote 1.5 years ago about major sensor rewrite...

Another two tiny issues, with a major consequences, were found and fixed:
- on some devices, the app did not record any points (because of problematic detection of correct point precision)
- and also someone may suffer from slow GPX import

Uff, so another version was published. This one was not planned and already contains more untested code than I would like. Anyway, it's out ...

Menion, in the hidden state, I noticed the bottom bar (Always visible) behaves differently depending on how the zoom buttons are set (Always show/Auto hide).

I think, Locus should use the second layout if no center button visible. But if we hide the center button, it picks the first layout and leaves this big notch where the button was before.

My guess is, you have accidentally linked the second layout to the Zoom buttons instead of the centering button.

I have applied below settings via a preset.

Do you have a screenshot? I have no clue what this is about; in what context do we have "active points"?

Something I noticed again recently, but I think it's been like that for a while:
On my tab (Galaxy Tab S5e), Locus shows the track and point details as panel on the right in landscape, which is good. In portrait, however, tracks are shown on the bottom (good!), but points on the right, taking 50% of the screen (with only a few lines of text and lots of white space) - really bad!
Is that intentional or a bug?
