Sounds great! But I’m not sure what exactly a change to the auto zoom scale (default setting: 100%) will do. And, tragedy of tragedies, I’m not riding my bike right now. Could you perhaps explain a little?

Auto zoom scale makes (speed based) auto zoom smaller (<100%) or larger (>100%).
i.e. scales the algorithm towards long or close range respectively.

So if you feel that speed based auto zoom is too “zoomed in” can try a <100% value.
Or if you feel that speed based auto zoom is too “zoomed out” can try a >100% value.

Please see also the discussion in its feature topic:

This provides the option “select all” in file browser (Android 7) :+1:
I appreciate this, because I put all map files which I usually use into one folder.
Thanks!
And I have seen that the term for shaping point in German version is “Shaping-Point” now, consistent to website :+1: (instead of “Formpunkt”) - I have to hurry to update that in the converter, too.
And - of course - I appreciate the option to set names of shaping points.

Android’s storage access framework will become mandatory in the near future.

And it offers several advantages in older Android too, so better now than later.

I have just tested the new file management process and I like it. Finally I can store my tracks and routes on my SD card in the directory, which I have created. Big step forward for me.

A good point that I like is that the compass button is now also faded out when this setting is active for the buttons.

I just noticed that the “Biker Cafe / Meeting Place” overlay in the “Map layers”
menu is not available anymore. When and where did this go? :fearful:

Corinna

Map layers in app remain the same as always.

The POI list with the OpenStreetMap tags is here:

I mean the same as the "Biker Cafe / Meeting Place” (“Bikertreff” in German) on the Kurviger website.
For some reason I thought this was already in the app as well. Checking on OpenStreetMap.org,
I don’t see the tag which is connected to that information, unfortunately.

Bikertreff gab/gibt es bisher nicht in der App

Biker Cafe / Meeting Place did not/does not exist in the app
