Map not centered and struggling when

Jan Richter shared this problem 3 weeks ago
Not a Problem

When I set "rotate map" the map is not centered and outside the viewport. An it is struggling. As you can see in my video.

I use a HTC U11 life with Android 8.

Hi Jan,

check your settings > Maps > Map control > Shift map screen center - isn't it switched ON? If yes, switch it OFF.

Maybe I do something wrong. Evertime I switch my preset - I have two, Hiking an Biking - the setting switches back to on.

Hello Jan

if you use presets you must set the settings inside "preset settings" for each preset.

e.g.

click on 3-dot button on the right side of your Hike label > edit > pencil/scroll down and uncheck center map

Open your Bike preset and next your Hike preset, now map should be centered

What a great support on this side! Thanks to all of you!

But sorry, it doesn't work. I unchecked "Shift map screen center" and "Center map" in settings inside my preset. But it only works when I do that in global settings. And then only until switching the preset.

That's weird - i.e. can't be simulated. 1) go to presets, 2) select "edit" the Bike preset, 3) find "Shift map cursor" and uncheck it. 4) go back to presets and tap "Bike" preset again - all should be set as is in the preset. Isn't it?

Ah, ok. That worked (there are so many settings in Locus Map ;-)). But the map is always struggling that much. Is there a solution for that too?

What do you mean by "struggling"? That it doesn't rotate when you rotate the phone? Either your HW compass is not calibrated (http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:how_to_calibrate_compass) or your device is not equipped by a HW compass and orientation is computed from GPS data - then it works only when your are moving.

Did you watch my video? All lines within map are flashing a little. I have a compass and all ist fine when rotating the phone. The map rotating is much smoother and nothing is struggling/flashing when I do not use my dashboard.

I see, the flashing... will you post your dashboard here? I'll test it. You can find it in /Locus/data/dashboard - it's a file with ".lb" suffix.

thanks... well, I can't simulate the "flashing" on my phone (Xiaomi Note4). It's probably a hardware issue.

OK. On friday I will get another phone (Galaxy A5 2017) and then maybe the problem is solved with it.
