A few blocker/critical issues
Last weekend I ran into a number of problem using the app (v3.69), Android phone is Samsung A22.
It was a warm day, I've been sweating, and my the phone was in my jeans pocket. The track was being recorded, so the Locus Map was up and running in the background.
- Even though there was a passcode on the phone, the Locus was just below the lock screen, so it was constantly bypassing the locking 4 numbers and — completely by itself due to the touch of the sweaty leg — and random touches were applied to the Locus app that was working on the background. I believe this is a huge issue and there MUST be an extra unlocking step in the Locus itself, in order to protect the user from accidental (unforeseen, unwanted) body-generated taps in the program for sure.
And please do not tell me that it's just my fault and that I must buy an extra book-style smartphone case cover and carry the phone, when idle, in the 100% dry place. In my real-life use cases, neither is possible. The protection against such frustrating scenarios must be implemented in the app itself.
- As a result of the frustrating issue described in the step 1, at some moment I saw that the program STOPPED recording the path AT ALL, and instead of that on the bottom part of the phone's screen the obnoxious warning box started to appear, it is saying thing like: "The app Locus Map Classic is asking to allow to enable Bluetooth". This unwanted message continues to appear till the very moment I'm writing this, and I have not found a way how to get rid of it. I navigated to the "external sensor config" -> "BT sensors", but all of the available options there were (and still are) disabled! So, at this moment I can't even understand where to disable this unwanted thing!
- After getting back home from my journey, I tried to record another track in the city, but once I started recording, no data points were collected, to track line drawn. The App still continuously asks me to enable Bluetooth. So, how do I finally switch that obnoxious Bluetooth blocker off?
- If the problem cannot be solved by changing the settings, I have a backup in the zip format, yet it's an old one. Is it possible to revert just the settings from the backup, but to keep all the currently existing Way Points and Tracks?
