I think it is for cyclists (road/gravel/randonneur/mtb) very, very helpful to have for "all" slopes different colours.
It makes a big difference for a cyclist (but asewell for  hikers e.g.) if you have parts of a track with f.e. 4% then 10% or 14%!

It is quite good right now - after a couple of rides in the mountains I recognized, that
green stands for around 0-2%,
light green - 2-4%,
yellow - around 4-7%,
orange - 7-9%,
red - 9-12%,
dar red - above 12% .

It would be nice if you could adjust:
Gradient 10-15% orange, 15-30% red and everything else in standard track color.
- you can set it manually just for the maximal slopes.

Not all are MTB-Cyclists - there are aswell the 'normal' Cyclists (s.a.), but aswell for hiking and trekking it is very important to know (all!) the slopes of a track and would be very helpful!

Best wishes!

Hello menion,
thanks for your reply - I always aprecciate your help!
Concerning slope/elevetaion diagramms I thought you are in contact with the developers of LocusPro so I hoped you might help me or push this theme forward.
I know there is aswell a "wishlist" (locusforum), but I do not see that this really works and that the developers of LocusPro have a look at it.

I really hope that the slope thing will be realised and that we do not have to wait too long... I know a lot of trekkers, hikers and cyclists who are eager to get this feature.

Thank you anyway!

Das heisst, die app an sich liegt aber weiterhin auf dem Gerätespeicher?
(nur Karten etc. sind auf der SD-Karte ausgelagert?)

Bei erstelltem individuellen Dashboard kann man sich bei Navigation oder Zielführung entlang eines dargestellten Tracks ein Diagramm mit dem Höhenprofil der Strecke darstellen lassen (mit Angabe der aktuellen Position):

Allerdings wird das Profil nur immer maximal für eine Strecke von 20 Kilometer angezeigt. Bei der Erstellung des Dashboards (Element "Diagramm" einfügen/ siehe screenshot) kann man bei der Festlegung/ Bearbeitung der Parameter für das Höhenprofil leider nur eine Strecke von maximal 20000 Meter eingeben (max. sichtbarer Bereich/ siehe screenshot).


Ist es irgendwie möglich, das Höhenprofil auch für längere Strecken (über 20 Km!) im Gesamten hier anzeigen zu lassen?
Ich denke gerade an Strecken bis zu vielleicht 150 Km - da ist es ganz hilfreich, deren Höhenprofil (wenn dann auch etwas gestaucht) über den ganzen Bereich sehen zu können.

Hat jemand eine Idee oder sieht eine Möglichkeit, diese maximale Begrenzung (20Km) zu ändern?
Vielen, vielen Dank! Grüße

It is not possible to select exact values.
Anyway, a "pencil" icon next to "slope" option allows defining automatic or manual coloring. Automatic spread color between minimal and maximal slope values found in track. In case of manual, you may define these limits.
Menion, did you find a solution for the "problem" I mentioned above?

see my reply #4 (

Thanks, menion, for your quick reply.
It is a bit sad that there is no reference-% (in case of selecting "slope" as one of the options) for each colour!

Automatic spread color between minimal and maximal slope values found in track.
I like the automatic mode so there I can see all colours/slopes - it would be great to get the reference value for the colours - an option for future updates or the locus-handbook.
I know - it is not possible to get the exact values - but it would be very helpful to know, if the slope is for example between 4-7% or between 8-11% or over 12% ... ((especially for cycling or hiking) ).

And the other "solution"/ way in Locus (graphic diagram with distance/height and slope) is very, very complicated and there is aswell no sign, where the selected point of the track is...

And within the routplanner - you can display the hight display (in this case very good WITH (!) the selected point - see "blue cross"/diagram and blue ring(map) - but still I miss there the displaying of the slope-data!

We miss this feature in Locus so much (by the way: Osmand did find  a solution to show the slope-% at each selected point)...

Please, it is a feature which is really, really helpful for all actives out there:
- to know what the slope-colours in a track refer to (circa % values)
- AND: to show at a selected point within a track the slope at that point!

Would be absolutely perfect if an update could manage this!
Thank you very much!

Hi menion!
But with the line style I do select "slope" to be coloured - see the screenshot.

It would be absolutely great if the colors would refer the to a value, f.e. green  0%, yellow 4-6%, orange 6-8%,red 9-12%, dark red > 12%.
Or can I do this by myself?

I just discovered that there is now a possibility to show the slope of a created track with a different coloured track line:

for what of gradient in percent do the colours stand for (red,orange,yellow,turquoise,blue and so on)?

Thank you very much for your help!

Dear menion,

GPS crashed yesterday again several times. It was only one time possible to "create" the log (the one I have send to you).
I do not know what I am doing wrong (I took the instructions from here: - before I open Locus, I "Enable USB debugging" (developer options) + select "Take Bug report".
Just one time it showed me the report in the notification bar.


(btw: for sure I do not have activated the "Energy Option" of the mobile )

Sorry to hear about such troubles. Maybe it all comes from the first mentioned problem.
To solve this, usually best is to create a log right after crash happen, by this method. Thanks
It crashes again and again.....

I tried to create an bugreport - I hope it helps (I have send you the report by PM).
It seems that a lot of people do have this problem at the moment...

Best wishes

Well, I hope I can get this log when Locus crashes again... (maybe others have the same problem at the moment).

I use Locus Pro since years - and I love it, as well as the constant software-development and support; but now, since the last update I do have again and again the following problems when GPS is activated:
1. Locus crashes totaly
2. or GPS position stops
3. or when recording a track - recording stops

It leaves me really desperate, especially now in summertime when I use Locus every day on my tours!
What to do?
Is there any bug?

Thank you very, very much for your help!

dear menion!
thanks a lot for the new version - especially for the "track analyzer"-possibility.
It would be so helpful, if you could include the possibility to show at the elevation profile the percentage of incline.
Best would be aswell, to show at each point you "click" for at the elevation profile simultaneously this point at the map shown above (in the analyzing display).

I have to go back to the new height profile showing in the "route-planner screen":

for several months now OSMAND offers the possibility to show simultaneously on two "screens" the route on the map and below the profile of the height INCLUDING the slope in percentage (at the point in the map or height profile you clicking).
See screenshot here:

I know the slope/percentage can't be absolutely correct, but anyway - this approximate value combined with the profile of the height and the map in the little screen above helps a lot. It is a great and very good feature Osmand offers now.
Why can't this be possible in Locus either?

In LOCUS it is now a bit too complicated:

-> in the "new" routeplanner it shows me only the height profil

-> opening the settings with the statistics of the track it shows me just the diagram with height profile and percentage of slope at the point I have choosen - but no map simultaneously on a second screen.

This feature would be such a great help especially for all the cyclists - and it would make Locus much more complete than it is already.
Please - I would be so thankful if you/ someone can work on this!
