So the only thing I thought I could was that the option value is preset by default to the value that was hardcoded in TB since the beginning, ie. MEDIUM.


For BB devices ... what was it before this release?

And: Isn't assisted GPS included in the HIGH power setting?

I really don't need any changes except the one that if I press the "set Maps or ATlas button" I can't cancel that operation. I need to find a valid map or Atlas file.
And please, do not remove the Android top bar or make an option if possible to have it visible or not. I want it there!

@MrTom

Backlight change notification is now vibration (you may have vibrations turned off globally or in TB with power save option in Misc) + yellow bulb icon in bottom-right corner.
Add Field Note command - go into some wpt details, press BB Menu key (or whatever they call it), it should be last but one command.

@shen

I was wrong! Embarassed It was MEDIUM till 0994, and HIGH since then!

Only if "cost is allowed" , ie. assisted GPS is on in TB settings.

@salmonsalar

Top bar will be controlled by Settings->Desktop->fullscreen option in some future version. At present, this option has no effect.

Yes , I run TB with "power option". Now I see the light symbol and only one vibration when power save is disabled".

When I Key #1 I see :
Navigation-
Waypoints,Tracks,Field Notes, Record Current, Add Custom, SMS I'm here, SMS Meet you there
Choosing Field Notes > Indicates I have no field notes and immediately reverts back to above menu.

Choosing Waypoints>
I get my wpt list, on choosing a list my options are:
Select, Navigate to, Route along, Route Back, Showall, GoTo, Sortbyposition, SortbyName, SortbyDistance | Back
No "Add Field Note command "as indicated.

This appears to be notes mainly for GeoCaching and probably a feature I would rarely or never use. Only mention it as an information source to you.

I like the fact that I can do extended hikes and use mininal power. This will be great for a planned multiday hike. Will reduce the number of spare batteries I will need.
Thanks,
Tom

Eh, I've found "Add field notes" menu. It is under "Tracks", however it should be under "Waypoints" IMHO. Or both. So far I loaded my Geocache related gpx files under WPTS directory, as they contain distinct points, not a chain of points linked together into a track. Reading the posts I think that everybody looked for the new feature under "Waypoints" menu.

You should Open wpt info to have Add Field note visible in options for it Smile
I agree with MrTom - Field Notes are specific for geocaches.
Question is how to be sure about wpt type, if additional info for geocache wpt is not present in gpx ...

Well, experimenting a bit on gpx files, I'found that if I remove the GreoudSpeak tags from the file, I can add field note, but if they exist there, I can not.

Sample GPX from www.geocaching.hu:
Code:

&lt;b&gt;2009.12.07.

&lt;/b&gt;


-----------------------------------
2009.03.01. Logbook csere.</groundspeak:long_description>
</groundspeak:cache>
</wpt>

</gpx>


Using this version, I cannot add field notes.


Stripped version of the above:
Code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<gpx xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" version="1.0" creator="Groundspeak, Inc.

<urlname><![CDATA[GCKOPI]]></urlname>
<sym>Geocache</sym>
<type><![CDATA[Geocache]]></type>

</wpt>

</gpx>


Now the field notes are enabled. Why do I have to remove geocaching related info from gpx, to be enabled to enter some other geocaching related info?

I like the backlight change notification.

@footz I believe the power consumption includes GPS, because I get ~ 15% usage without GPS on on G1. But, again, it is 1.6, I'll check this too.


I've played with trekbuddy offline today, just some map browsing, GPS turned off. The battery use display shows (6 h from last charging) that trekbuddy uses 76% of battery. I have no idea how much that is as for the battery itself, but compared to other apps, which battery use doesn't exeed usually 10%, it seems too high.

A little suggestion for the Field Notes would be to as you have said above:
- Update the time to be correct.
- Be able to pull in your current location as when you log a found geocache, you can add a waypoint.
The information can either be placed in the following formats:
Degrees, minutes, seconds ex. N43 13' 27.72" W079 53' 31.92"
Degrees and minutes ex. N43 13.462' W079 53.533'
Decimal Degrees ex. N43.224367 W079.892217


Thanks.

Candidate for 0.9.98 with some recent issues (field notes, backlight on SE JP5, device discovery on S5230, power consumtion and repaint problems on Android) solved or improved at least, hopefully...

You're not wasting any time Smile

Just downloaded it now, worked with it online and offline INDOORS, and it looks like the battery use on my HTC is now ~15% Great Work. And it does remember the settings. I still have the backlight issue, but I'm not complaining, just making an observation Very Happy Maybe it's just my Android.

Thanks Anyway!!
