Feature request. Sunrise/sunset, moonrise/moonset information

Sergey Louks shared this idea 3 years ago

Is it possible to add such feature: show on map directions for sunrise/sunset, moonrise/moonset, and directions to the current position of the sun and the moon?

I understand that Locus pro has other applications, but almost for 6 years I can`t find proper app with such functionality and offline maps support.

There a lot of applications for photographers that shows this information, for example Sun Surveyor, TPE (The Photographer`s Ephemeris), LightTrac, Photopills and etc.

But none of this applications are not able to use offline maps. And it is very strange situation, because if you hiking in Nepal - you often do not have an internet connection.

It will be very cool if the Locus pro will have such functionality.

I am sure this feature will attract a lot of new fans to your app.

Thank you!

I have Sun Surveyor as a link on my dashboard and it works perfectly OFF LINE...

Per ihe infomation page:

Offline Use

* Save & Load Locations for use Offline

* Use AR View, 3D Compass, Details Offline

* All Calculations Performed Internally

I know about it, but i need map view with offline maps to scout locaitons, not details or AR view.

If it has ability to use sqlite maps it will be great.

I sent a suggestion to the developer of SunSurveyor to consider adding the ability to connect to "sqlite" maps on the external_SD card.

Others interested might also do so. No sense in the Locus Pro team investing time and energy in essentially developing a new app as a good one already exists.

I have to agree with mrthom1. This function is not directly related to hiki, bike etc. activities, that locus is primary focused on. Mainly in case, there already exists nice working solution (without offline maps, I know).

Such task should take quite a lot of work and result won`t be better then already existing solution. So I have to say, "sorry", I do not agree with adding such feature into Locus, even it obtain in very short time, "nine likes"

I am happy with the app Sunrise/Sunset. It gives one page of related information. Menion has better things to do.

I have merged topic from brad to this, already existing and already "declined".

I'm sorry to say it for part of you, but nothing has changed here. I still think, that more deep and precise information about sunrise/sunset etc. belong to specialized app and not directly to Locus.
