OpenAndroMaps with Elevate theme, switching on the Public Network features in theme manager.
However mind: LoMaps and OAM only can show what OSM contributors have entered into the OpenStreetMap database. So you may want to check local coverage before.

BTW: a full migration of all MF features may be a longer term endeavor (while preserving the speed of Locus :-).
But I suppose that theme functions like "display=always" will not be too hard to implement. And would give a LOT of power to theme authors.
Priorities would be the next on the list, but may need some more thoughts.

Besten Dank für die Antworten,

Filtern max Distanz erfüllt deinen Zweck nicht?
Für heute hier, morgen da kann man auch verschiedene Ordner anlegen.
Das Filtern nach Distanz hatte ich schon versucht, ging aber irgendwie nicht. Wurden trotzdem alle angezeigt.  Muss ich nochmal probieren.

Verschiedene Ordner hatte ich früher schon mal. Der Aufwand beim aktualisieren mit GSAK ist aber sehr hoch. Und es dauert fast genauso lange die Caches in den Ordnern auf der Karte aus oder ein zu blenden. Muss ja dann immer die Ordner aktivieren oder deaktivieren.

bist Du NUR mit Tablet unterwegs
Nein, Handy hab ich auch dabei - ist aber eins für nur telefonieren ;). Hätte ich Smartphone - hätte ich kein Tablet. Abe isch Tablet weil isch nischt erkennen kann auf Smartphone  8);D.

nach folgender Methode die gewünschen zur Ansicht auswählen

das sieht gut aus. Das werde ich mal ausprobieren, wie sich das weiter verhält. Muss man das immer neu wählen, oder wandert das mit verändern der Position mit?

danke und schönes Wochenende,
Ich würde mir für sehr kleines Geld ein 4 oder 4.5 Zoll Smartphone kaufen. Mit gutem Akku und Durchhaltevermögen. Der Bildschirm wäre ja fast nie an.

True, Locus display via MF 0.8 looks different from Cruiser, which is kind of reference App for MF.
I documented with two screenshots, both with the basic OSMARENDER theme:
- the Cruiser one (advanced, lextra label layer mode) correctly shows both cities
- the Locus one is missing Wiesbaden
When I check Cruiser in normal mode, it is missing Mainz instead.
Rendering without Label Layer is like rolling the dice ...
Maybe you have a talk with Emux to explore.

Mapsforge is a powerful set of APIs, but not a complete App in itself.
The proper label display feature is built into the Cruiser App (using MF libs), but is not a gift from those APIs automatically.
You can test by displaying a heavily populated area with Cruiser and compare it to Locus with MF-ML maps (from MF or OAM/elevate theme), which enfore the MF lib you integrated. You will be shocked by the difference.
Rendering has two modes, and both show much a better selection of Labels. "Priorities" in themes make a big positive difference already, compared to Locus. And the extra Label Layer shows a fully proper and complete set of labels, as dictated by the map content and the theme.
If you look at a map and cannot tell if a blank space is because there is nothing of what you are looking for, or if the App has "forgotten" to display the expected - not good ... !

Zu Punkt 2> bist Du NUR mit Tablet unterwegs oder hast Du ein Smartphone auch dabei. Dann kannst Du mit Tethering dem Tablet ein WiFi spendieren und Live Maps genießen.

I know this and tried, but there are other issues.
The MF libs alone will not give you the proper label layer, there is more algorithm needed, which would benefit Locus itself as well.
The parallel existence of Locus private and MF algorithms do not deliver the strengths of MF into Locus. In fact the discussion is about COMBINING the strengths of both. Long overdue ...

Hi Menion,
seeing dp, px mentioned, this reminds me of a long standing pain: Locus is no longer reasonably compatible with Mapsforge. And the themes are just the prime example: size definitions differ, missing priorities and alike.
I think this house-keeping is long overdue. And this is not a question of voting, just to close that door.
Also the extra label layer like in Cruiser is the only way to get in control of the currently totally unreliable and unpredictable displaying of labels.
Christmas is nearing - time of a gift :-)
TXs and cheers

Das liegt m.E: daran wie LoMaps und Lo-POIs verknüpft sind: per Namenskonvention der beiden DBs. Wenn Du die OAM-Karte so benennen würdest wie die LoMap, hättest Du die automatische Kombination von OAM-Map und Lo-POIs. Ich habe schon lange gefordert, dass die Lo-POIs getrennt lad- und bezahlbar sind. Getrennt laden geht jetzt, glaube ich, aber es kostet den vollen Preis der Karte.
Da zickt Asamm noch ...

Ah I though you talk about some "wikipedia" offline usage.

Locus for quite a long time use API from Geonames:
I see. But when you use Wikipedia search in Locus then at the bottom you quote Ben's copyright. But you miss to show Geonames copyright, correct ?

The offline thing is still of interest for me (and others who travel outside 'always on' areas), but you are right, this is a different topic :-)

Currently Locus does use WikiLocation in the resp. search function. Now: based on the author's statement (Ben Dodsdon) WikiLocation is no longer active. Hence the question if Locus uses old data from 2014 or what else ...

Troubles & Questions / Re: Import POI file

Hello tigus,
understand. I've changed first idea on help desk to "votable idea". Because we have our internal generating tool connected to some other tools, it is even not so simple to just publish it and because of quite a lot of other work, it make take some time, thanks for understanding.

That is what I assumed :-) But never mind: such operation will never be a push button thing  for just users, but only for people who are at some level of programming or scripting skills.
Hence it would be sufficient to just provide the tool and describe what the input conditions are. And it is our problem how to meet them.

Hi Menion, just wondered if you took the WikiLocation databases from Ben back in 2014 ? Or would you consider using the new and supported and official Wikipedia API that Ben mentions in his services termination post of 2014 ?   TXs and cheers from France Michael

Locus speichert die in einer Datenbank. Dateien wären viel zu langsam. Die ist unter dem Data Ordner, Database, Tracks.db
Locus kann aber ganze Ordner exportieren, dann hat man wieder Files.
