new version of Locus Map app is available on Google Play. We daresay that this release is quite different than previous ones. The reason is new point screen, which is completely changed.
New point screen is well arranged and fits for different types of points. Point screen uses full size of your display. You’re able to see more fields and small map preview with direction arrow. Also editing of point is quicker – change the field and simple press back button. Locus automatically saves your changes. Have you tried to add some attachments to the point? The new version has new manager for attachments and you can also add arbitrary file as attachment.
Recorded track can contain standard points with defined name, attachment or description. Let’s start recording and add new waypoint. They are shown as small red arrows.
Google Places is very powerful feature for searching of POIS near to your location. In new version you can load detailed information as photos, opening hours, phone numbers or web pages (Try it Locus > Menu > Search >Google Places).
In the latest version you can highlight the Geocaching logs of your geocaching friends. Garmin icons are fully supported and there are lots of fixed issues: eq. problem with automatic backup, import more zip file at one or direct import files from emails.
We’d like to notice the new support portal where you can share your ideas, ask questions or help to solve problem of others. Please visit http://help.locusmap.eu
