Hi.  With today's .1 non-beta release, if you get the Store's message "No internet connection", you can't escape.  You have to either shut down Locus forcibly, or re-enable the internet.  (I even tried searching for "exit", but that didn't work. ;D)

Is the basic world map available anywhere other than by a search for "world"?  I couldn't find it.

(I had some weird things happening by switching between the OAM world map, an online world map, and my - older? - LoMap world map.  Probably a caching issue.  So I cleaned things out by deleting and - after a wee search - re-downloading the LoMap world map.  Now it works well, and the basic level of info is perfect for me, thanks.)

Elsewhere (Quick Map Switch), you label vector maps as "Smart Choice" - which they are - and also as offline maps.

A little consistency might help.  Besides, anything that helps nudge people AWAY from using tiles, especially downloading massive amounts, is a good thing.  Right?

Thanks everyone.

It's a minor issue, and I can live with it.  But I thought I'd mention it, since it was me that brought up the related earlier issue with LoMaps.

I'd used V3 in all my OAM maps up till now, but thought I'd try V4, because theoretically newer is better, right?  Now I'm not so sure.  So V3 uses menion turbo-optimized-code and V4 uses off-the-shelf code?  I see V4 gives far fewer theme options, but at least the matching Elements/Elevate are there.

A few months ago I mentioned in one of these threads a problem, which you fixed immediately, thank you.  The problem was, POIs in LoMaps that had "name:en" but no "name" would render on-screen with "en" prepended, eg "en Super Coffee".  See here: and quick response on next page.

Today I downloaded a multilingual map from OAM (meaning, V4 MapsForge, right?), my first time doing this, and see the exact same problem.  For example, the POI at when shown on OAM's "Middle America" multilingual map.

Would this be a Locus issue, or an OAM one?

More generally, if I'm using OAM, am I better off with the V4 version (multilingual) or V3 (quick install to Locus)?  I only chose multilingual because I assumed 4 > 3.

Mine is still working fine after a year.  8)
Friends of mine bought a pair of newer-model Blackviews for themselves, for geocaching, and so far seem happy as well.  8) 8)

Don't try to "import" the map from that folder.  Just place it there, and Locus will see it automatically.

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Tiramis├╣ 3 Locus Edition +
« on: November 28, 2017, 20:46:06 »
Reminds me...

One thing I've noticed is that Tiramisu (in Hiking mode) shows hiking trails less prominently than Elevate LE, which I understand it's based upon.  Notice the difference between the second and third examples above.

Personally, I definitely prefer the trails being more prominent.

But overall, a great theme.  Thank you!

Looks nice, yes, but I'm going nuts trying to install it.  Locus doesn't show it as an option, even after exiting Locus and [desperate] rebooting the tablet.

Do I have the file structure right?

That matches what I see in the ZIP.  (Ignoring the PDFs; I left those out.)

I've tried various other structures as well, following the example of themes that *do* show up.  Such as, adding a Tiramisu directory to hold the XML and the resources directory, or simply scattering the resources beside the XML.  None of it works.  What am I doing wrong?

(The map downloader app doesn't work.)

Thanks in advance,

WAIT A MINUTE.  Now that I've logged in to post this note, I see a download link in the post above - for a *different* ZIP file.  (Different than what I downloaded from the "box" website after a search.)  That may be the answer!  [testing...]  Yes, that one works.  Simply dropped the ZIP contents into _themes, and it works.  And indeed, it looks great.  Thanks.

But totally confusing for anybody not logged in.

Ah, never mind.

On both my active devices (both Android 6), I uninstalled Locus Free/Beta and rebooted.  Bingo: problem gone.

Like the other issue I mentioned today (Live Map), it must've been due to some G4L confusion over Pro vs Free.

A new glitch in the grey-cache-logs version.  If I go Download Logs, it doesn't refresh to display those new logs.  You have to exit to the map and re-enter the cache info screen to see them.

No biggie because there's a workaround.

Add-ons / Re: Geocaching4Locus - version 2.0.3

That seems to have made it work, thanks, but it was odd.

I uninstalled Locus Free/Beta, Ran Locus Pro, asked for the Live Map.  It said "Enabled" but nothing happened.  I tried it a few times; noticed it said a mix of "Enabled" and "You need to sign in" or words to that effect.  So I signed in (took a very long time, but I think that's Groundspeak's fault), and now it's working fine.

Like you say, maybe it was some confusion between G4L and (Pro vs Beta).  And as I said, I rarely use the live map, so if it's only me mentioning it, I wouldn't worry about it.

This problem is back.  Both Locus (non-beta) and G4L are up-to-date as of today.

I don't use G4L day-to-day, but needed to diagnose an unrelated problem, and suddenly noticed, once again G4L doesn't work.  It claims periodic updates are off, but they're actually on.

I generated for you custom Vietnam osm.db file. You can download it at:

This is far beyond the call of duty.  Thank you!!!

PS, both fixes work quite well.  (I can't believe how fast you guys work!)

@Viajero Perdido: problems with incorrect number of files will be solved in next version. Some popup of unwanted screen is interesting. Hard to fix without steps to simulate. Does it happen again and again?
Hi Menion.  I can duplicate it SOMETIMES, though it's not annoying.  You need a long list of PQs ready for import.  Here's what I did:
On my medium-resolution phone, I went into Geocaching Tools; on my phone "Middle Point" is the last thing visible; the explanatory sentence was not.  (I'm not using full-screen mode.)  I tapped Load Pocket Queries, and that showed a list longer than the screen.  I scrolled right to the bottom, and selected the single checkbox at the bottom.  Tapped Import.  That brought up the screen for that PQ.  Tapped Cancel.  The Line Tools or Middle Point dialog (can't remember now which one, sorry) was showing; I'd briefly seen it pop up and then get covered by the PQ dialog.

Today I was only able to duplicate this once, sorry.

I hate bug reports that can't be duplicated.  (I've been in your shoes...)

« on: August 18, 2017, 17:04:38 » fallback mechanism shows at least the type of point.
Ah, a fallback mechanism, got it.  When I wrote that, I thought it was showing "Restaurant" for all such POIs, but I see now it's only doing that for "problem" POIs like the one I pointed out.  That's not so bad.

But Hanoi is full of those problem POIs, if you need something for testing.

Thanks for the quick fix on "en".
