Hi Benjamin,

what color is

1) the circle in the middle of the Locus screen when you think the app finds your location? Is it dashed green or full blue?

2) Locus GPS indicator/button in the upper right corner? Is it white or orange or green? What is displayed on the skyplot when your tap it? Could you post a screenshot?

And a few more questions:

- does your position move on the map when YOU move?

- is Locus Map excluded from your phone battery optimization? If not, please exclude it, otherwise your OS will kill its processes running in the background (including track recording) (more info: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:faq:gps_lost_fix_android6#samsung)

Hi and thanks for the tips.


I attached some screenshots. So far the only change I made was to battery optimization. Locus is now excluded.


I noticed thus time a message popup upon starting the app saying "Getting location using GPS or wifi is turned off in system settings. Locus maps will not be able to obtain your location.


I have checked the app permissions and location is permitted. Or is this referring to the Locus system settings???
