Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.30.+ ( 15. 3. 2018 )
« on: May 18, 2018, 11:13:41 »
The button text for selecting the overlay map has been changed in the beta. It now reads:
If no overlay map selected - CHANGE MAP
If overlay map already selected - SET
I think the text ought to be the other way round:
If no overlay map selected - SET
If overlay map already selected - CHANGE MAP

Troubles & Questions / Re: Non existing roads on World map
« on: May 11, 2018, 13:40:36 »
Great idea and much appreciation for all the work you've obviously put into it.
For my purposes, it really has too much information, as what I want is a simple overview with key roads and towns.

Most of the set up is already in the screen, so not Setup. The button simply changes the map. Change Map says it all but is probably too long.

Edit: Or put the button next to the map name?

I think you may need to install Locus Tweaks from the Google Play Store.

Discussion/New features / Inconsistent user interface
« on: April 26, 2018, 12:04:39 »
I think it is time for some consistency in the user interface, particularly with regard to accepting or cancelling settings screens. I illustrate three different screens in particular.

1. Changing info text for a track.

Do I tap the back arrow, or the SAVE text? Answer, no. Hide the keyboard and there's a SAVE button underneath.

2. Choosing available maps.

Does the X on the top right corner cancel? No, it accepts the settings in the check boxes.

3. Accepting terms of use for a map

No, the orange box is not a confirmation button. That's up in the top corner, where it says CONFIRM. And the X means cancel this time.

Oh Menion, let's get this right!

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: February 26, 2018, 16:56:00 »
Multilingual (Mapsforge v4) maps from OpenAndroMaps can now be displayed with the included Voluntary Mapsforge theme, which is only offered as an option when a Mapsforge v4 map has been selected. Voluntary Mapsforge is as similar to Voluntary UK as possible.
Other changes:
- Addition of switchable tracks in City and Roads styles
- "Blue" icons darkened to improve visibility
- Buildings under construction shown in latest OAMmaps
- Cable cars now hang downwards in Voluntary Mapsforge and Cruiser/Orux version
- Velocity colours revised (track/residential/runway/military etc)
- Voluntary UK national/international cycle routes set to red labels (as UK signage)
- Rendering order and style of roads under construction changed
- Alignment of passes; abandoned and active mine and military bunker now shown on OAMaps.
- Peaks appear at zoom levels according to their local prominence on OAMaps.
- Bridges align for cycle tracks on OAMaps.
- Race track bridges, tunnels shown.
- Paths etc slimmed slightly

Latest version in first post in this thread.

Themes - Vector maps / [Theme] OS Style

Just for fun, I've produced a theme that mimics the UK Ordnance Survey styles as far as possible. It's available for free download here.

The world maps (which come from OAM) that have a transparent top layer have a -tr- in the name. This one doesn't.

It is possible to install both LoMaps and OAMaps of the same area, and use the LoMaps offline address search while displaying the OAM maps. Offline address search allows you to select the file to search (at the top of screen).

Have you tried OAM V3 maps?
I suggest you ask on the OAM forum. If this is a bug, Christian is likely to seek to correct it.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Problem to show maps together
« on: January 06, 2018, 14:32:23 »
I think the menu command is:
Menu : Settings : Maps : Offline maps : LoMaps and other Vector maps

The illustrations below show LoMaps England and Wales with and without this setting selected and the relevant settings page.

Troubles & Questions / Backup and restore worked
« on: December 27, 2017, 15:47:07 »
For some reason Locus Pro disappeared from my phone today. Just went.
I reinstalled from the Play Store but all my settings were gone. So, I found the latest automatic backup and did a restore and now all is well!

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Tiramis├╣ 3 Locus Edition +
« on: November 28, 2017, 20:24:53 »
I installed Tiramisu 3 LE theme but it does not display all hiking trails in LoMaps.

I compared several map themes and here are the results.

Shows all hiking trails?
Hike & Bike = Yes
Tiramisu 3 LE = No
Elevate LE = No
HiLo = Yes
Voluntary UK = Yes


Full-size image
Voluntary is designed to work with both LoMaps and OAMaps. I know Elevate is only designed to work with OAMaps. I suspect you may find the missing trails if you try OpenAndroMaps with such themes.

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.
http://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=2915.msg19296#msg19296
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.
