Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: September 29, 2017, 16:08:55 »
Voluntary theme has been updated. The new version is available in the first post, or through Locus Store in the app.
The main enhancements are:
- Option to show "difficult" paths in LoMaps and maps from OpenAndroMaps
- Names for archipelagos, islands and islets in latest maps from OpenAndroMaps (from 1 Oct 2017)
- Minor but important changes in the order of rendering of one-way streets, route overlays, railways, aeroways, ferries and bridges; white underlay for paths on bridges; revised border rendering.

Hi guys, do you have latest version of G4L add-on? There were some fixes mainly because of problems with latest Beta version.

Hi Menion,

For me, the solution to switch the maplanguage in the mapmanager was the better one.
Reason: Not every map includes (eg) the german language (Asian Countrys) and there are loads of languages possible for the maps, more than a complete list ist compfortable to seach/chose from.

So you have to go to the mapmanager, look what languages are included in the map, go back to settings and chose the language (if it exists in the list).

In Israel/Syria there are he,ar,en (hebrew isnt in the list in settings yet).
And there are a _lot_ of languages and idoms around the globe, just think of all the indogen languages in South America. I have worked through the CIA Factbook, thats really amazing :-) 
.. and really complicated cause there are different language codes depending which ISO you refer.

I'v attached an ods doc with the current OAM map-languages - a first attempt only.

Maybe there is a way to assign the language switcher to the maps (the actual loaded one) again,
maybe to be placed in the function bar or in one of the sliding sidebars?

Thanks for all your efforts

Troubles & Questions / Increase map resolution for specific map
« on: July 11, 2016, 23:36:43 »
I was wondering if it's somehow possible to use the "increase map resolution" setting only for tile maps.
I often switch between tile and vector maps and the tile maps (online or offline, mainly google maps) are too small to read. I then increase the map resolution in the advanced map settings and it works fine for the tile maps. But when i change back to vector maps everything is way too big.
So i was hoping that i could set the resolution just for tile maps or even per map but couldn't find anything. Even a quick way of changing the resolution from the side panel would be great.
Any ideas on how to do that?

Themes - Vector maps / [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: March 04, 2013, 18:22:01 »
The Voluntary UK theme is designed for clarity of display. Its colours are based on UK Ordnance Survey conventions and will be fairly familiar to British users. Even if you are not British, the colours and styles will probably work well for you. It automatically scales for devices with displays of different resolutions and symbols enlarge smoothly for higher zoom levels. The zoom levels at which various features appear has been adjusted to provide optimal information and reduce unwanted clutter.

You can choose Hiking, Cycle, City, Multi or Yellow style when you select the Voluntary UK theme.

The theme takes advantage of selectable overlays. Display of hiking, cycle and mountain bike routes can now be switched on or off, as can highlighting for each of them. The number of options shown is purposefully limited to aid ease of use. Cycle, Hiking, City and Road styles function almost as presets with a limited range of tailored options, while Multi and Yellow have a fuller (but manageable) range of options. Locus remembers the settings of the overlays for each style.

The City style is aimed at use in large cities such as London and has a less cluttered (and slightly faster) display at zoom levels 14 and below. The Yellow style is aimed at use with overlays such as Strava (see Each style has selectable overlays, with Multi and Yellow having the greatest range of options.

Generally, blue dashes are cycle ways, green dashes represent dual use both on bike and on foot (bridle paths in the UK), and brown shorter dashes use on foot only. Blue blobs are cycle routes, green blobs are hiking routes. Mountainbike trails are shown by violet blobs. Cycle routes are also indicated by blue dashes on the roads. Hiking, cycle and mountainbike routes can be emphasised by selectable overlays.

The theme is designed to work well with both LoMaps from Locus Store and maps from OpenAndroMaps. Footpaths, bridleways and cycleways are indicated on the map by dashed lines where they follow the path of a mapped track or pedestrian way if the map supports it (currently OpenAndroMaps).  Also on maps from OpenAndroMaps, blue dashes on roads are either cycle routes or roads with cycle tracks alongside, while shorter blue dashes on roads show cycle lanes in the road.

Included is the visually-similar Velocity theme for a simpler display with much faster drawing.   

The package is available in two versions, one for Locus maps and the other for Cruiser or Orux Maps.

The Locus version of this theme can be installed easily from the Locus Store in the app. Go to Locus Store > By Usage / Graphic  / Themes - Vector Maps and scroll down to Locus Community / Voluntary UK theme. Alternatively, download Voluntary, below.

For Cruiser or Orux Maps, download Voluntary, below. This version does not include a version of Velocity.

From time to time I will update these themes (and reset the download count). The latest version is always in this post.
