Maps / Re: Universal world map
« on: Yesterday at 01:16:30 »
@Michael: Firstly, I must apologise over the Arabic comment. Some areas in North Africa are trilingual and I didn't recognise the Berber(?) character set.
Nonetheless, I do think some areas are hopelessly overcrowded (see below).
Picture 1: Roman, Berber, Arabic character sets
Picture 2: Overcrowded texts.

@voldapet:
1. Aha. But I didn't think to try that, so it's not obvious enough for me!
2. Under Maps, there are a host of maps. Click wrench, then show on map. Show what? I wonder. One map? All maps? Which map? Legend says, Zoom in. Nothing different on zooming in. My initial idea was it might be a preview of the available map, but I had no idea how I could cycle through them.
Try the same thing with Tracks. Lots of available tracks. Which track is it meant to display? It doesn't anyway. My initial idea here was I might see the tracks centred on a map. But which track?

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).

Store:
1. Difficult to identify themes as opposed to other graphic elements
2. Wrench icon on Map section of Store has "Show on Map" option. I can't work out what that is supposed to do.

From memory, I think OAM maps distinguish between road surfaces but LoMaps do not. Both distinguish between different track types (effectively surfaces)
The Elevate/Elements themes display road surfaces included in the map data but I'm not sure how they deal with unknown road surfaces.

Maps / Re: Universal world map
« on: January 17, 2018, 00:46:19 »
Thanks for the link and for the hard work that has gone into the maps.
Feedback on this version: ZL8 in the UK looks great. Not so good in countries with two versions of place names, and I'm not keen on the coloured outlines.
The low zooms (1, 2, 3) look good, too, but some of the intermediate levels look far too crowded for my taste.
Also, some of the Arabic place names are using an incorrect font.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: Removing unused external themes
« on: January 16, 2018, 10:59:24 »
@menion: Theme XML files can't share the same directory in Locus. If there are two XML files in the same directory, Locus shows neither theme. So it is safe to simply delete the directory containing the theme XML file.
Some themes do use a second directory for graphic resources which may be used by other themes. That cannot be deleted unless one is sure it is not used by another theme.

1. I've got the world map to work with world map from OAM. Thanks for the response. I'm not sure that I prefer it to the old Vector version though.
2. Quite frequently the beta app opens to a blank white map. Zooming in or out redraws the map correctly. I think this may be when it should be displaying the world map but I'm not sure yet.

Themes you install from Locus Store can be renoved via the store

Thank you so much, Menion.
The new overview map feature works like a charm.
Michael
How do you get the overview map to work? I get Disabled in settings and can't change the setting. I have the hidden world map from the Locus Store downloaded and working.

Maps / Re: How to add OpenStreetMap Online Map
« on: January 11, 2018, 09:08:46 »
For me, I have OSM - Outdoors available in Locus. That covers the whole world, though I don't like its appearance.
You might like to search Google Playstore for Locus Map Tweak which adds a number of custom maps to Locus. That app is not supported on this forum however.

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!
