Post 18 of 48

Dear Locus users,

Is it true, the new version is coming!
Last 2.16.0 doesn’t come with huge list of new features but the changes are visible at the first sight.

New graphic interface

Almost all screens have new graphic layout. There is a “trend” of changes in last versions with goal to make Locus graphic interface closer to standard android layout. Locus has better appearance on tablets, buttons are bigger for better controlling in the field and screens in landscape mode offer more space.

Modules are gone new “More” panel is here

There was feature called modules until the last version. With this feature you were able to influence the number of features which will be available. We removed the mechanism of modules but on the other hand there is new “More” panel which is fully editable.
Do you want to hide some feature from “More” list? Go to the Main Menu > More > Edit a simply touch features you want to hide or show.
