Hi:


I am a happy user of a Galaxy Gear S2 and lover of Locus. Is their a way to bring a dashboard of Locus on the Gear? Or even get a portion on the displayed map?


When guide on or navigation is active that would be nice to be able to go without having to pull your phone out of your bag. Maybe recording a point directly from the watch would be great...


I guess this could be come something rather similar to the add on for the Sony watch.


Thanks.

Same here. I am a regular user of Locus Map Pro and a simple dashboard of Locus when there is an on-going track with main information (elevation, distance, time since start) would be great!

This would come very handy and this is where a smartwatch shine. I hate having to take out my smartphone when hicking and it is not even possible when biking whereas the watch is always at my wrist.

Thank you!

Keep up with the good work!

Hi, First of all: great job on the app. I use it all the the time. love the features.

But as a sportsmen (running mostly) I was searching for a new sport(smart)watch with navigation capabilities.

Therefore I find a pity that samsung gear isn't supported, since it will probably become the most common wearable (Samsung is promoting the wearables in my country actively).

I've read you not support the OS of the samsung gears.

But I can tell you as a member of a running community, this might be the future. Because a Gear Fit 2 cost only ±€200 so a lot (and I mean a LOT) of (amateur sports) people will become potential buyers (for LM). Don't miss the that train. Other developers are catching up.

I love Locus Maps and I want to use it for running purposes. running a GPX tracks with navigation at your wrist. A dream comes true.

Thanks anyway.

Yes please!!!! Thumbs up all the way!

Gear S2/S3 DON'T HAVE A SINGLE APP available so far that can be used for waypoint navigation!

If that's not convincing enough then I don't know what is?!

I'd be willing to pay for an app that can either work with Locus android app and be standalone app on the gear itself: nothing fancy, as long as it allows recording waypoints and navigate to previously recorded/imported waypoints or tracks. If you could pre-load offline maps that would be even better but atm there's absolutely nothing allowing waypoint nation as a standalone feature on Gear watches. Tbh I bough it hoping it would have that capability so it was a bit of shock to learn that it doesn't...

There's absolutely nothing for the s3 and hiking besides fitness apps which are not as "geared" to hiking as locus.

Unfortunately it looks more like Android wear support is coming as this http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/android-wear-support is marked as In progress and Galaxy S2/S3 is still marked as Collecting votes …

Many applications develop extenstion for andorid wear, but tizen has a larger market share than android wear. So it must be the interest of the developers to propose extensions where there is the most user

Good day Hean,

it does not be a must of interest! We are thinking about making add-on for a Tizen devices, but decision was not yet made. Creating Tizen based extension is a lot more complicated then creating Wear extension, so it is more about finding compromise between invested time & usage of what we create.

We'll inform in this topic, in moment we make final decision. Thanks for understanding.

I would also be very happy to have Locus Map for Samsung Gear S3. I'm using Locus map since couple of years, I also have Gear S3 since one year, and some functions like, Record track, store waypoints, map navigation, etc. would be awesome to have on my Gear. Thanks for support.

I would also love to see a tizen app/widget from Locus. Would head to purchase loads of maps straight away. as of now, there is no way to get topo maps onto tizen, so I would say the market and the demand is definitely there!

Samsung Gear s3 is actual one of the best smartwatches in combination of civil+outdoor+sport. Please support this. Im using Locus now a long time and i'm happy also in using itg for geocaching. The connection to the smartwatch, maybe together with the android phone would be really great.

Please add also the TAG "Samsung Gear S3".
