Hi guys,

we have finally, thanks to four months of Michals work, new manual for Locus Map:

http://docs.locusmap.eu... or Locus > menu > support > knowledge base

We will try to keep it as much up to date as possible. Anyway not everything is already there (part, mainly advanced topics are still in preparation) and not everything may be clear to you.
And here comes more question / request. If you find that something you personally wanted to know is not there, or something is not clear, or ... whatever ... please open in this section new topic or write into this, new topic. Michal will take care about it ;). Thanks!

Hi guys,

latest version of Locus GraphHopper add-on: v0.4

Requirements: Locus Map 3.9.3.3+

(if exists) Delete the old Locus/graphhopper folder - (is not needed anymore)

Download the APK file from HERE (tools directory). Copy the apk file to your device and install.

Download Routing files from same directory, based on your country.

Extract zip to Locus/mapsVector/
(Planned solution is that routing data will be part of "vector maps" download over store.
So best is to place these files next to your vector maps in Locus/mapsVector directory.
example: .../Locus/mapsVector/yourcountry.osm-gh)

In the GraphHopper Add-on choose which file you want to use.

Start Locus and set graphhopper as default routing service.
http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:functions:navigation:settings#navigation_data_sources



Advanced users: in download directory is also a generator, so feel free to use it for generating own GraphHopper routing files. All options/types should work correctly now.

How to generate routing files
- Download the raw openstreetmap file (pbf files)
- Execute ./graphhopper.sh import <your-osm-file>. This creates the routing data

Recommended generator parameters
Code: [Select]
graph.flag_encoders: bike2,racingbike,mtb,hike
graph.bytes_for_flags: 8
graph.elevation.provider: cgiar

add `car|turn_costs=true` if need car routing

Please, if anyone has Android 4.4.x with SD card, where this SD card is not writtable, find some time and test how it works now with Locus. Simple test is to create empty dir on card only, another test is dir in internal memory only and in the end two directories at once. Locus should now handle all situations and in case of troubles, display new screen with detail description and hint what to do. Hope it will be clear. It's major problem and I do not have better solution than, if it occur, explain how to solve it.

- added support for export altitude also for KML waypoints
