Locus UI is sluggish during Navigation

Marius Moldovan shared this problem 2 months ago
In Progress

In the newest version, during navigation and with track recording on, the user interface is very slow responsive some times.

1. Tap on next turn box, then on route detail... I have to wait 3-4 seconds before it opens the menu

The strange thing is that if I close menu and sometimes later I open again... then I have no slow-down and everything is fine... \

Don't know why the slow reaction is only random/ sometime..

Good day Marius,

a little complicated task to solve. You are on the latest 3.39.2 version, right? Is there anything that may heavily affect the speed of the map like a huge number of points/tracks on the map, map overlay, WMS map? You may try to reduce visible content on the map if it helps.

This slowdown happens really only navigation? Does it make a difference how long the route is?

Truth is that I made some performance optimization regards map rendering during the last months, but navigation performance was not tested for some time, so a good reason to do it as soon as possible.

Yes, I'm on 3.39.2

I have only 1020 points(visible) on map( are geocaches) and about 24 tracks(but only 4 made visible).No WMS map, no map overlay

Slowdown is only during navigation and it is about the user interface(menus,buttons for the current route), NOT the map (panning and zooming the map is working OK)

Regarding the lenght of route: I observed slowdown especially when routing on (small)pedestrian paths in the mountains and when route is longer and contains some crossings with other paths

Hello Marius,

oki, understand. You may give a try and hide some of your content on the map. I'm aware we talk about UI and not the map, but it is partially connected and if the rendering of the map will be slow, it affects a UI as well.

As I wrote, I'll try to invest some time to search for possible performance problems and fix it. It won't be improved in next 3.39.3 (next week), but definitely in 3.40 version during September. So later, give it a try and if the result will be same (hope not) and you will be interested in improvement, please write me and I'll try to prepare a special version that will tell us more what happens there. Possible? Thanks!

Hello Marius,

Beta version finally published, so feel free to try it if you will have a free moment.

Because I made really big changes in the app, Beta version will be promoted to regular version somewhere in the middle of September, not sooner.

Thanks,

Menion
