Problem with custom directory for 'mapItems'

Kevin Gunde shared this problem 13 days ago
Solved

I just installed Locus Pro on a fresh Samsung Galaxy Tab A (2016) running Android 7.0. I downloaded a local offline map, then I downloaded an image map. I set four calibration points, but when I attempt to create the image map I get the orange box with the phrase: Problem with custom directory for 'mapItems'. The mapItems directory is in the default location the installation placed it, which is under the Locus directory. I loaded a gpx file into the mapItems directory from within Locus (Map items + function), and it copied and loaded it just fine.

I just tried the same process on a Moto Z Play running Android 8.0.0 and it worked perfectly (other than having to deselect 'Optimize Map'). The directory structure of the two installs appears identical.

I have the same problem when calibrating an image map. All works fine up to the point where the map should be stored to the MapItems folder. I get the same error message.


This used to work flawlessly before, I have many calibrated maps in this folder. I never changed the folder.

I'm on Android 5.1.1.

Good day Kevin, others,

sorry for this stupid issue. I was fixing a different problem and this is an unwanted side-effect.

How crucial is this feature for you? Because it is only a known serious problem in the latest version, I planned a new version after few weeks. In this case, I may create a special version for you here or just give here previous version 3.33.2? Let me know. Thank you for understanding.

Happy to know it will be fixed in a couple weeks, and it's not something dumb I have done. Can't speak for others, but I can wait a few weeks.

I have the same problem, usually I need this functionality once in a month.

But today is that time of the month :(.

How do I find the previous versions' apk?

Oki guys, thanks all. I'll try to speed up update little bit, but good to know for me, that it is not too hot.

Thanks and have a nice day.
