Problem with the configuration of geotagged photos

Eduard Lopez shared this problem 12 months ago

Good afternoon.
I have the GOLD version of the Locus
In the Geotagged Photos menu,
I can only select nothing more than a display folder: DCIM/SDCARD.
When I want to select any other, I am especially interested in Whatsapp, it seems that the option is selected, but in reality it is not like that. I have tried it many times and only the DCIM remains even if I deselect it.
Is it a phone or Locus problem?
Thanks a lot

Its an android issue,

dont rely on whatsapp as a stotage system for images, as they are temporary, save images you want to keep out of whatsapp.

either upload to google photos and use its geotagging

or leave in DCIM for now,

external SD card Pictures fodler should be supported soon.

but online syncing of photo POIs is being worked on....hopefully


Hi Eduard,

this was a problem of the app, sorry for the inconvenience. Please test it on the latest beta:


Hello Michal,
I have downloaded and updated the program.
It works perfectly.
Thank you very much.

I use Locus pro 3.68.2 on a Google pixel 7 pro. It has no external SD-Card, only internal memory. In the config dialogue for Geotagged photos' directories, 1st ist DCM = /sdcard/DCIM. How can I change this to /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera, whitch is THE directory in my Pixel phone? I habe no add- or "+"-Button in this dialogue.




Hi Thomas,

/sdcard/ is a standard way Android OS names its internal memory. The external SD cards have code names. Locus Map doesn't modify the directories in the "Geotagged photos" selection, it just displays all available directories with photos.
