News in version 2.20.2

Hi Locusers,
We wanted to release only small fix version but we‘ve changed so much features that we have to say: New version is here! Let’s summarize what’s new.

Images, Videos and Track recording

Track recording is one of the favorite features in Locus and it’s little bit improved now. You can quickly add point with images, record audio or video and everything save together as one route. It’s useful for saving interesting places on your trips or easy tool for mapping.

Web services

New version has centralized place where you can manage network services:

  • ikiMap – tool for creation and sharing own maps
  • Trail.pl – primarily for our polish friends for sharing hiking routes
  • Výlety Zábava – it’s new service for Czech users where you can download interesting routes for trips with your family

Point screen

What do you think about new Point screen? New version improved the speed of this screen, you can hide overview map, but the important thing is more inteligent save function. We’ve completely improved it. Locus recognizes if you change anything and save changes when you press back button. On the other hand no change caused no save. It’s similar to Google’s applications and it’s quite quick way how to edit any parameters.

Geocaching focused on images

Images in Geocaching screen (listing and image tab) fits to your device resolution so reading is much more comfortable. New version is really focused on image so you’ll be able to see images together with logs of other geocachers. BUT it needs new version of Geocaching4Locus which is not released yet!

There is of course lots of improvements related with new point screen, temporary points, icons in KML file and lots more

Enjoy it, Try it and write us in case of any troubles
Your Locus team

    I bought the paid app and I like it a lot but it occurs to me that the GPS SATs diagnostic view is so useful you should make a version of code with just that and release it as a GPS app. I use it to debug other views when they fail.to see GPS and find the per sat visibility and strength and lock info amazing.

      Hi Lasse,

      unfortunately Locus doesn't support bsp/kap format, but you can convert these map using Mapc2Mapc SW http://www.the-thorns.org.uk/mapping/
      This software can read mentione navi maps and convert them into *.sqlitedb format. Please see:

    Hi, I have a problem with starting the Locus on Android ICS since yesterday. Yesterday I could still do some hike with the app but now I cannot run Locus. When starting the app, the warning "Insufficient memory on SD card / internal storage in directory Locus (3MB)" appears. I have tried to delete some files, search ".odex" file (recommended by users on the internet) but there is no such file in my phone. Reinstall also didn´t solve it.... What´s the problem?

      Hi Martin,
      sorry for late response. The error message says that your SD card is full. Locus needs about 10MB free space to start. So please check the free space on your SDcard. Honestly I don't know "*.odex" files and they aren't created by Locus app.

      Regards
      Petr
