I went through such exercise more than once with different phone types and never found a bug. Settings were applied correctly, old offline map path I could remove and new file path set. No idea if a bug has been introduced since or something is special with your situation. But I think there is a way you can fix it right now:
1) in Android App Manager wipe the data of Locus (only) and delete the /data folder (I assume you HAVE a backup for that already somewhere else, INCL: a settings backup (text file!))
2) restart Locus and via Map Manager ("+") set the paths to your offline maps on external SD correctly
3) do a settings backup
4) merge the two settings backup files manually (removing the wrong data paths
5) import the settings backup
I never tried that, but theoretically this should work.
Good luck.

Correct, the new Android (S9 versus ancient S4 version) now uses the SD card ID as part of the path.
All old map references in Locus are invalid. Take them out.
Then start all over again by traversing from the top folder (above internal/external, should be like /storage), so you will have the right path name for Locus included.

Es gibt einen Thread in dem die Analyse der LoMap-Datenbank-Struktur schon sehr weit getrieben wurde.
Es müsste sich ein freiwilliger Entwickler finden, der daraus einen Konverter baut, der aus Mapsforge-POI-DBs die LoMaps-POI-DBs generieren kann.
Keine Zauberei, aber Arbeit.

Hast Du einen Draht zum inneren Kreis von OSM ? Ich jedenfalls nicht.

Gibt es eine Heuristik, die mehr korrigiert als sie falsch macht ? Das wäre dann ein Fall für Massenupdates in der OSM base. Die müssten mit dem Support-Team (oder wie immer man den inneren Kreis bezeichnen will) abgesprochen werden, glaube ich.

Oder für's Erste ein Fall für weitere Zeilen in Christian's und Locus' Transformations-Scripts ?

Hi Menion, preparing for a vacation, I had to edit a lot of tracks and POIs.
The POIs behave nicely. You save from the top bar.
For tracks there is still the old mess: the top bar says "save", but if you hit that, you will in fact discard.
While the functioning "save" is hidden behind the virtual Android control buttons.
Could you PLEASE adapt the track edit behaviour to the way POIs are handled ?
TXs and cheers

I created it and uploaded, but it may have missed this night's copy cycle to the distribution site. Same for the HTML page.
We'll know tomorrow morning.

OK, I'm creating an additional "W1-8min" map, which has no additions to the background maps.
For ZL 8, only the settlement names stay as in the current version.
This should fit your tasts better, I hope.
One size does not fit all, I agree  :-)

Good start, Menion, but do not sto´p here, please :-)

Adding a POI: SAVE is in the right place (upper bar), but discard is hidden in a sub-menu - put one left, the other right, so people don't mess by error

Editing track infos: still the SAVE is on the bottom - wrong place for reasons explained - incl., but not limited to consistency.

TXs and cheers

SO spot on, John !

#1 illustrates the issue around keyboards and different ways to hide them. All action elements (save, cancel, ...) should be on the top to end such device dependent behavious once and forever.

"X" (pure close of popup) should be avoided or ALWAYS mean "cancel". And "cancel" PLUS  "confirm" or "save" (that may depend on the context) should be explicitly presented as text. So there is zero ambiguity.

Just my 2c.

If you downloaded a raster map, those lines are "burnt in".
If your download was a vector map, then have a look at the theme, which controls the rendering on your phone (you can switch on/off all you want, re-color, etc. etc. - but you are dealing with a huge XML file and need to gain some understanding to like your results).
