Quote from: Marek Scholtz on August 08, 2023, 08:50:33Now, we have updated also POI handling to new Google Maps format and hopefully they won't change it in a month. If you encounter silly URL in search window in the next release version, check if you are on latest Google Maps version and if yes, let us know.
Quote from: Jan Čapek on August 08, 2023, 14:38:484) Smart search MUST be able to return result >1000km far away if it might be relevant. You can already filter results to your map area. I don't consider this to be problem
Quote from: Jan Čapek on August 08, 2023, 14:38:486) Topic with sharing data from Google Maps is only indirectly relevant with search capabilities. First, it is not "meant" to be used this way - it is implemented primarily for sharing data via emails/messages
Quote from: Andrew Heard on August 09, 2023, 08:02:32I only use this as a workaround. The combination of the app that @0709 suggested has really improved this method of sharing greatly.
Quote from: Graf Geo on August 08, 2023, 21:15:24Correct. Download and installation of version 4.18.1 afa from GD works fine.Thanks, Menion.
Quote from: Jan Čapek on August 09, 2023, 13:41:39Yep, it is handy tool, but unfortunately the app isn't compatible with recent Android versions, nor is working offline.
Quote from: freischneider on August 09, 2023, 19:25:11Share GMaps: Now wait for the next version. And then we'll see. The whole writing costs the developers unnecessary time.Search: Here, too, wait and see is the order of the day. Besides, it doesn't belong here. There is a separate topic for this. Therefore no more contributions should come here.
Quote from: joeloc on August 11, 2023, 18:45:39Buddy tracking is super unreliable btw, if anybody still cares about that function. It stops working at least least five times per day and we have to manually turn it off and on to see our points again.It always happens when network reception is bad for a while. Locus seems to mess up internally and never gets back on track.Btw... if you have code in there likeif phone.isOnline() do_stuff();else do_other_stuff();that might be the main problem. Once you leave your LTE development couch and travel through the real world, your phone will quite often only THINK it's online... like in zero bars 4G or even Edge. Transmitting a single byte might take ages though or come back with a failure after some longish timeout. Quite likely Locus hickups on that... maybe if the network error timeout is longer than the tracking interval? Just guessing.And nope... we're not in rural India... we're in the mountains of southern France right in central Europe. Buddy tracking still fails plenty.There are obviously at least a dozen other things wrong with buddy support in general. But unless the likely answer is different from "not a priority" (as for the last five(?) years), I won't bother repeating myself over and over again. Ask if you want two more pages of neccessary fixes... or just go cycling with a buddy, then you might finally notice yourself and do something about it :-)
