Hola Orux y compañía!
Como anuncias hay un gran cambio en esta nueva beta y a mi desde luego me gusta. Gran trabajo.
La he instalado en dos teléfonos, en un bq aquaris 5 kitkat y en un bq m5 lollipop. En el de kitkat he tenido que regresar a la última beta de la serie anterior, pues no deja acceder a los menús. No muestra la barra superior de menú.
En el M5 funciona pero observó alguna anomalía y alguna cosa que quizás no me gusta demasiado.
En lo que he cacharreado, poco he de decir, no veo disponible la opción de "Vuelta atrás" cuando entras en el menú de acceso a las configuraciones de opciones de grabado, sensores... A esto era a lo que me refería como anomalía.
Y por último lo que no me ha gustado es que ahora la opción de iniciar Ant+ queda oculta en Sensores y exige una pulsación más.
Me pregunto yo si no sería posible, que vinculado al tipo de perfil que tengamos configurado queden en el guardados los diferentes sensores y que cuando iniciemos el gps desde Orux, este automáticamente conecte ya los diversos sensores. Es decir, si yo tengo un perfil "Running" y dispongo de un pulsometro incluido en ese perfil, cuando inicie gps lance también el Ant+ o el bluetooth, según corresponda y conecte. Que si tengo creado un perfil "Btt" y uso del pulsometro y sensor de cadencia p.ej, al iniciar gps vincule automáticamente con los sensores. Vamos, esto, como idea!, yo en mi caso, sólo dispongo de pulsometro y poco podría probar, pero creo que al que use varios sensores le vendría muy bien.
Saludos Josean.
P.D. Mañana probaremos de manera activa.

Hola Orux, en general me gusta mucho la nueva estética. Tendrías que dar una vuelta a los submenus como por ejemplo cuando pinchas en un cuadro de mandos y te sale la lista de todo lo disponible, rompe la estética general. Por otro lado las Opciones de navegación y sensores los pusiste en un submenu, yo los uso habitualmente y me incómoda que lo que hacía con un clic ahora sean dos, pero bueno todo sea acostumbrarse. Te seguiré dando mis impresiones. Como siempre enhorabuena por el trabajo y gracias.

Hello,

i have now 6.5.8.beta1 parallell to 6.5.7 on my Oneplus One with Android 6.0.1 (Cyanogen OS 13.0)

But...
1.
In contrast to other betas in the past, this beta did not took over my customized settings from my "productive" Oruxmaps

2.
When i go to "Switch map", "OFFLINE", refresh: the beta is not finding my offline maps.
If i go to "Global settings", "maps": Maps directory points correctly to /storage/emulated/0/oruxmaps/mapfiles/ (same and default as in my OM 6.5.7); an attempt to navigate to a different directory leads to an endless "Loading..." pop-up.

3.
Button "GPS tracking on": The little icon on top left appears but 6.5.8.beta1 is not finding position

UPDATE 3 hours later:
After checking/comparing the App settings/permissions within Android 6 for OM 6.5.7 and 6.5.8.beta1 i noticed that all 6 permissions (contacts, SMS, storage, ...,) were disabled in the beta; after enabling that, all is OK now.

Matt

Hola!
Orux, el tema de la "Vuelta atrás" olvidalo! Cuando compare los menús entre la versión vieja y la nueva beta entre los dos móviles no me di cuenta que en el viejo tenía abierto un track y por ello mi error.
Por lo demás, hoy lo he probado corriendo y todo ok.
Saludos Josean.

Hola a todos. Por concretar me refiero a las ventanas que se abren en algunos menús como esta:
Image

El marco rojo contrasta con el resto de la aplicación, pero es un tema menor. Lo que si me gusta de esta ventana, es el ok y el cancelar, en contraste con la siguiente ventana, que los tiene pequeños y demasiado juntos:
Image

Sobre el tema de los sensores la idea de josean, me parece muy interesante, poder memorizarlos en función del tema.

Digo todo esto porque aún temas menores, me ha parecido que quieres dar importancia a estos detalles.

Saludos cordiales.
