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.

Vector maps have themes which have different style options, selected either by drop down menus or check boxes.

Nice to have map themes now included.
For me, it would be nicer to have map styles as well as themes included.
Because each preset can have own independent set of settings I imagine could cause user confusion. Seems user will generally need to have settings identical in each preset (for example I am testing with 3 presets Cycling/ Driving/ Default). There is not going to be large number of settings to choose from so could the initial choosing of set of settings be removed - each preset just has all possible settings? User simply decides on the value of each setting.
That change would need a three-position switch (on | off | no change) for each setting which is what the present arrangement achieves.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: January 26, 2017, 14:51:42 »
I've adjusted the styles for the theme so that 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 (Neat, Menion!).
The key (same link as post above: http://bit.ly/volkeybeta ) has also been updated.
Voluntary Cruiser is included here for completeness but is not intended for use with the Locus app.
This is still beta, but almost ready for release.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: January 16, 2017, 23:10:03 »
I've reworked the Voluntary theme significantly to take advantage of selectable overlays in themes. Display of hiking, cycle and mountain bike routes can now be switched on or off, as can highlighting for each of them. I've limited the number of options shown to aid ease of use. As far as possible this works for both LoMaps from Locus Store and maps from OpenAndroMaps.
There are other improvements, including embankments and dykes and cycle tracks and lanes on OpenAndroMaps and a Yellow version to help when using overlays such as Strava (see http://www.locusmap.eu/strava-heatmap-in-locus-why-not/).
I have also provided a slightly more limited version for Cruiser and Orux. The "bugfix" version has been retired.
As this is the first release with these features, please treat this as a beta and let me have your comments, please. Once I'm sure it is working well, I'll upload it to the first post as usual.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.20.x (31. 10. 2016+)
« on: November 11, 2016, 12:35:41 »
With the present user interface, changing overlays is rather complicated. The current overlay has to be removed with the "Remove" button , then a new one has to be selected with the "Select" button. As the overlay can be simply switched on and off, either with the eye icon on the map Layers slide-out menu or the switch on the Map Overlays pop-up screen, the "Remove" button is someone superfluous. I suggest either (a) click on the overlay name to change to a different overlay or (b) change the "Remove" button to "Change overlay" button. That reduces clicks by one.

Another place where the data manager screen is described incorrectly. It doesn't deal with local files any more.

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 http://www.locusmap.eu/strava-heatmap-in-locus-why-not/). 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 Locus.zip, below.

For Cruiser or Orux Maps, download Voluntary Cruiser.zip, 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.
