List "Destination - Recently used" always empty

Uwe Borkenau shared this problem 8 months ago
In Progress

The list "Destination - Recently used" is always empty. It doesn't matter which kind of destination I had chosen before. I get always the information "Nothing here yet - Select a new location first". You can take s look at the screenshot.

Hi Uwe,

thank you for your report. We are not able to simulate your problem. At first, could you please send us file get_location_recently_used.lb located in <your-locus-directory>/data/config? Make sure you had chosen some destinations before. Thank you in advance!

Hi Marek,

thanks for your answer. I had chosen an lot of destinations before. I'm a heavy user of Locus. I think, that the problem came with the update with the new search engine. But I'm not sure. I've attached the file you wanted to have. Greats Uwe

Hi Uwe, thank you for the file. It seems to be empty, so recently used locations are not stored properly. We are not able to simulate it on our side, so it would be great if you send us some more info:

  1. Please install latest beta https://drive.google.com/file/d/1kEneMdmsjw6txzarTFKdn61Gbn2ufyR_/view?usp=sharing
  2. Enable logging by long press on Menu -> Setup logging -> Log to file
  3. Start screen recording (for example with https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hecorat.screenrecorder.free)
  4. In location picker try to pick at least 3 locations from different sources
  5. Stop video recording
  6. Send us both video file and generated log in <your-locus-directory>/logs

Thank you very much!

Hi Marek,

my problem is exactly the same as this, which "druki" has explained.

I've attached you the log file. The video is to big and it wasn't possible to attach it.


Greats,

Uwe

Videos can be uploaded to G-Drive or One-Drive and then shared via link. That's how most people do it here. There are also other cloud services that offer a solution

Hi Uwe, your problem seems to be very strange. Could you please repeat procedure but with another apk file? https://drive.google.com/file/d/16-_RDvnM2aIr6i1NLEkuI_zWf62YEZm_/view?usp=sharing You don't need to record screen anymore. Thank you!

Hi Uwe,

thank you very much, but I am running out of ideas. Could you please try it one last time with this apk? https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ePSx2zKqUV4g93o5uKODkazpkcD4tFGv/view?usp=sharing Thank you very much!

I've tried to install the apk. After this I tried to open and update the app. I got this message "App not installed as package appears to be invalid."

So it wasn't possible for me to try it with your new apk.

It is possible that Locus was updated via Google Play in the meantime. So try this apk: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pomziOAtGMwylDUAl4Ew1O8o6FyP0MMF/view?usp=sharing Thank you!

Hi Marek,


I've tried it again with the last APK you have send me. Now it saves all "last destinations" but only with the coordinates and not with the clear name.

Greats, Uwe

Hi Uwe,

thank you. Clear name should be back in the next release version. If you notice any problems after that, let me know.

It is important to know what kind of "last destinations" are stored in the list of the navigation feature.

After a bit experimenting, I found some aspects...


what is stored in last destinations:

- coordinates that are selected from the map

- result of a projection (coordinates)


not stored in the list:

- destinations chosen from POI (no matter if selected from map or from points management or from selfdefined quickdestinations)

- destination chosen from "middle of the map"

- destinations created by "search" in the destination selection


This listing of usecases is not complete, but it shows that it depends on the usecase if a last destination will get into the list or not.


In regards of user expectations, I would guess, the behaviour is a bug, because user don't think about which usecases should be in the list. They probably expect all destinations in the list, regardless which usecase it was at selection of the destination.


Suggestion: Put all recently selected destinations in the recently used list.
