Well Vulgar, the bus function is a really neat thing! The coverage here in Taipei is extremely good; some people do a really good job putting all this data in and by beeing able to use this data in PE, it makes traveling trough the city really easy. There are many many many buses here. And from my experience close to 100% is covered.
I lived in Switzerland before, Same thing there…
However, for PE to render the bus stands with the seat icon only on the closes two levels makes really no sense. The behavior should be the same as for the bus stands with the bus icon; otherwise its really hard to use that feature.July 12, 2015 at 1:38 pm in reply to: Bus lines in Taipei disappeared with last map update #8288
Thanks Vulgar Boatman!
I understand now where the Buslines come from. Guess u can only see those bus line information when logged in on OSM.
So the Bustands in Taipei probably got that additional Tag “bus=yes” by an OSM editor and the icon in PE changed after that.
I was asking about the source in the first place, because i couldn’t identify if it is an OSM or PE Problem. Thats why I posted here in “Allgemeines” instead of “Bugs” at that time.
To summarize; PE still has the Problem with those Bus stands with the seat icon now. In the last version it would show the icon on the layers higher that the two closest, (exactly the same like it did with the bus icon) but not show the attached bus lines for that bus station. And after the latest update it now doesn’t show the Bus stands with the seat icon at all on layers above the two closest.
On the two closest layers though, it works without any problem, as before.July 7, 2015 at 9:47 am in reply to: Bus lines in Taipei disappeared with last map update #8285
The Problem is different now, but not fixed.
Now in the new version and after the in-app data upgrade, Bus Stations are only showing at the highest two zoom levels.
In these two zoom levels the problem didn’t occur before. (as mentioned by Geomagik in an earlier post ) It was the lower details level where it didn’t worked. And now on those levels all the bus stations have simply disappeared.
After comparing different Cities, I noticed that the problem only exists for the cities that have a “seat” icon as a bus stand. The seat icon in my town came with one of the recent map updates i believe. Before i could only see a “bus” icon.
I now saw some towns that have bus stands with both icons used. There the bus icon works fine on all levels while the seat icons also only shows on the two highest detail levels.
Bus station still not working properly.: As before: 25°0
52.1N 121°324.7E (DMS)
Town with both kinds of icons used as a bus stand: Biel, Switzerland around 47°8
19.4N 14°409E (DMS) (two different icons right next to each other, both with bus lines)
Thanks for the Help and replies so far!May 18, 2015 at 9:06 am in reply to: Bus lines in Taipei disappeared with last map update #8180
Thanks a lot for the reply.
The new map update effectively brought the bus lines back. Yes, the same update also brought the behavior that now the bus Icon changes to the seat icon at close zoom range. And only if selected in that range, the bus lines will be displayed. so basically:
- 2 upgrades before: everything was fine
- 1 upgrade before: the bus line wouldn’t show in any zoom range; no icon change yet
- the recent upgrade: now displays bus lines again but only if the icon is selected at closer range after it has changed to a seat icon.
Maybe that will help you.
That is great news!
PocketEarth is my favorite application on my Phone! I have also lots of places saved on it and use it everyday since I moved to Taipei some months ago and am still exploring the city.
Its so good if u have a chance to find that tasty restaurant again, after discovering it somewhere in the urban jungle.
I have an iPhone 5 and wish to change to Android quite a while now but cant do that since i would lose this nice application..
Please keep us updated about the progress on the android app. Specially if there is some release schedule.
Thanks for this great application!
