No location marker

All the other stuff looks just fine, I don’t think anything else is missing or not rendered properly.

I have autoupdates activated for the app, so I can’t tell if the problem is connected with an app update (but I would guess so). I don’t use the app so often and at first I thought the problem was caused by myself through some setting changes or something like that, so I didn’t post anything here. So it could be connected to an update serveral weeks or even months ago.

Can you try the various options in “Settings | Map | Location”?

Like location at arrow tip, location accuracy, etc.

I already played around with all of them, but nothing changed.

Well, despite this other user was very unpolite, there are some similatities
The other user had:

  • Huawei P8, android 6.0
  • no location circle
  • no location arrow
  • map was moving during navigation
  • Kurviger free seems to work (not sure about this, complaints were to confused)

Thanks for clarifying it, stopped tracking that topic after all that noise. :laughing:
Next step is silence / suspend such cases, good manners are important.

Do I understand you correct?

  • You don’t have the location circle as seen in Kurviger 1.9.2 (left picture)
  • you don’t have the location arrow (right picture)

:thinking: There might be some changes since 1.9.2
BTW I don’t know if it is related.
On my phone I’ve never seen any difference between
settings | map | location precision on / off

I don’t have the circle, arrow or the blue dot. There is no indication on the map where my location is, but when I press the location button it centers the map to where I am. I can post a screenshot later if it helps.

That would need to zoom enough, so that the accuracy circle can enlarge.
If be in small zooms, the visible circle already covers the accuracy region.

Personally I don’t like very much the continuous circle presence. It’s role is more for accuracy purposes, not for make the dot / arrow more prominent in appearance.

So it seems that location sensor works in your device, but the location marker stopped working correctly (in some newer version?).

Yes, that seems to be the case.

OK Uhm wait. Maybe even I need to check our documentation from time to time but… The accuracy is the circle around the arrow (or dot when not navigating) we’re talking about?

First of all, that’s not influenced by the settings as mentioned above by Manfred, and secondly: that never changes for me. The circle ALWAYS has the Same size (in pixels so to speak) on the display for me, regardless of zoom level

I always thought this is some kind of decoration, to find the arrow fast :smiley: :smiley:
so does that mean it’s buggy for me as well??

Edit: no! OK now it think I get it. The circle simply has a minimum size that it always adheres to when you zoom out. And when you zoom in VERY close then it can become larger. Makes sense now, even though I don’t agree with the min size, that’s really confusing when zoomed out…

Correctly, from the old times.

Correctly, because of the previous reason.

I expressed my opinion above.
(better all these be discussed in a new topic)

@Toast can you download and verify that Cruiser has similar location behavior?

(run Cruiser GL with same engine)

I just installed Cruiser GL from google play store, and it seems to be the same. It knows my location (i gave permissions) and goes there when pressing the location button, but I can’t see any dot or marker on the map.

If the free Version of Kurviger works well (like it was stated) it probably has something to do with one of the features which only exist in the Pro version (“location arrow size”, “location accuracy”).

I got the same issue with the free version of kurviger, it’s not only in the pro version. I can’t see my position in kurviger free/pro or cruiser. Google maps works fine.

All apps use Cruiser platform.

Seems some manufacturers / drivers don’t like to follow the OpenGL standards and there are such regressions. :slightly_frowning_face:

@Toast if you are available, I can email / message you for some tests with Cruiser on your device. Hopefully to solve that. :slightly_smiling_face:

Yeah sure, I can test other versions of the apps if it helps solving the issue.


Location issue on Mali-T628 GPU should be fixed and work correctly in coming app release.

Reason was - as expected - the poor conformance of some manufacturers / drivers to OpenGL standards.

Many thanks to @Toast for the report & kind availability in testing with the needed device!

Always nice when our community participates actively in Kurviger development. :slightly_smiling_face:
