Compass - Distance from point before it beeps

Phil Wheeler shared this problem 1 year ago
Not a Problem

In older versions of Locus, you could configure the point at which the phone "beeps" when approaching a point with the compass active. Current versions appear to have this fixed at just over 100m, which is a bit far away for geocaching.


Have I missed a setup somewhere?

Good day Phil,


as balloni55 wrote, it is still possible. Maybe small help is "click" on Guidance > Points > Notification settings itself, not just on a small toggle on right side. Thanks to this you get into complex settings for a notification.


Hope it helps.

Thanks! I was sure the setting was somewhere.

Maybe you need a small change to that menu to indicate the presence of more options?


Regards,


Phil

You are welcome.


And yes, these extra options are not clearly visible and to be true, I was still unable to find some location indication. So maybe later.


Have a nice day,

I did not have an update anymore since I was messing with my phone due to the problems from Google accessing the SD-card etc ... Okay, a new phone, a new life ! :-p

Setting up my Locus system I noticed that approaching a point through the kompass navigation is not giving any 'beeps'. This always worked fine in older editions of Locus.

In 'guidance' there are some frequency sound options, working fine.

But in kompass navigation modus, this is not working anymore. So, solution ?

Think I found a workaround but it stays weird. First setup the guidance option and go from there to the kompass above. Seems logical, kompass is an option in guidance. Obviously the compass option should dissappear on the menu, it's confusing.
