Petrol station icons won't hide in road theme

Andrew Heard shared this problem 2 months ago

With road theme, petrol station icons are displayed as POI, or optionally grouped, but when I delete temporary map items, the counts or individual icons are temporarily hidden but then reappear a few seconds later. It seems to be the only POI for which this occurs. The icons or counts clutter up the map.

Good day Andrew,

issue I see here is more that these points are also removed with "Remove temp map items" feature and not that they re-appear after a while. These points are part of "LoPoints" database that is downloaded together with LoMaps from Locus Store and they appear as clickable points on the map.


Any suggestion how to deal with them better?

Confusing behaviour. I often use the Locus road theme when I want cleanest, simplest map. Especially useful because searched POI are more visible. I'm sure Petr will disagree but in road theme settings I would have checkbox to hide these petrol station icons.

Hi Andrew,


settings that hides petrol station icons in road theme sounds little bit strange. Especially for petrol stations that are (from my point of view) one of the most important POIs in road theme.

It might be better to find out the cause of your issue. Does it mean that other icons are not visible in Hike & Bike theme? Is map overcrowded by icons? Or would you please describe what type of POI's do you search? Also the screenshot of map area, where the petrol station icons are problematic, would be helpful.

Thank you

Petr

For me the Road theme doesn't automatically equate to cars and/ or fuel station. I find it very useful because of all themes it is least cluttered. This has great benefit when doing a search of points, and enable the display of nearest 100. Especially useful for shop points to determine closest one along current cycling route. The Locus points have quite weak (not saturated) colour scheme and a very hard to view on a cluttered map. Anyway, I was going to provide a screen shot and now Road theme doesn't show any fuel station icons, weird. I can do a point search to find one, delete temporary map items, zoom in quite close, but no icon as previously described.

So the problem is more related with wrong visibility of Locus POIs and not with road theme, am I right?


However, I'll discuss with the main developer the confusing behavior of "Remove temp map items" feature.

The "problem" appears to change with time. Should the road theme display LoMap gas stations or not? At present it doesn't. At the time of original topic it did. Or if zoomed out enough a POI count was displayed, now not. I'm happy enough with that, but something is inconsistent in the display.

Interesting :) What happen if you switch to another theme and back to road theme? I expect that database with POIs isn't somehow corrupted and you can for example search for nearest POis.

Ok, it seems if I display gas station POI, then hide/ remove those POI, that LoMap icons (underneath) are not refreshed. Bug?

Probably yes, but this is still the same confusing behavior that you described in the first post. I mean that feature "Remove temp map items" remove also the base map icons.

I think our discussion goes around in a circle. Maybe close the topic.

Well, you are right. I'm little bit lost :/ . Is it possible for you to create short video of couple screenshots that would describe your issue, please?

I can no longer reproduce the original issue, and while cycle touring I don't have high bandwidth to upload video. Close or delete the topic. Sorry to waste time.

OK No problem. We (at least) try to improve "Remove temp map items" feature.

Thank you
