Undated to 2 stars since I apreciate that at least someone is adding some comments to my review I shouldn't have to contact you after most of the updates though. Crashing crashing crashing... Still usable I guess but it used to be an excellent app. With every update I notice how is becoming slower and slower. It gets very annoying to navigate the offline maps. Barely responding. Also now crashes every time at least once while recording a track, so I end up with gaps in recordings

Very full-featured navigation and map software that has a lot of options even in the free version. I was primarily interested in the track recording ability of this app. There it is a little disappointing. It is able to record tracks, and you can set up different profiles for different activities so that you get accurate tracks. Lots of stats on the tracks recorded. But the UI is unnecessarily complicated, and you can only add way points as the track is being recorded, not add way points to an existing track. There is also no ability to find details of specific points on the track (distance from beginning or end, time visited, coordinates, etc.)

The old version was A LOT better. The UI was more intuitive and the pricing model was reasonable. The behavior of the menu is outright annoying. They're charging more for a lesser quality product. Users never want the GUI randomized. Never. The classic navigation was easier for new and experienced users. Version 4 was designed by an expert for an expert. Ambiguous icons without labels are guessing game. It was not made with a new user in mind and it makes supporting users extremely difficult.

Hi, as for the UI, that is a matter of point of view. According to our surveys among users, a great majority of them says the new UI is much more intuitive and ergonomic and most definitely, it is not randomized. All icons have labels, some even additional descriptions. And the new pricing model allows sustainable development. Michal, Locus team
