Main difference is that world map in locus is not based on OSM data but source is different and highly simplified. So I hope that locus world map will be really fast

And which is "better", it as usually matter of taste ...

I don't know if you understand what I meant. It is only one world map. That one I downloaded here in the forum.
And I wonder why the map looks so different in Locus Pro and Locus Free (newer).

ah I thought you compare world map here from forum and world map from kech. They're different because world map use also own special theme that is build specially for data which are in map and just for zoom levels 1-8. We're optimizing speed of vector maps wherever is possible, and complexity of themes is one of major problems that slow down vector map rendering. Thanks to separate theme, world map should be quite fast. You may also noticed that vector maps are in test version also around 25% faster then in your Locus Pro ;)

Thank you for clarification.
I think in the theme of world map there should be more town an city names for easier orientation. So my left screen with Locus Pro an world map in the title is better to read, at least for me.

understand and agree that map is little bit "short" on text labels. Map and theme itself is anyway work of peter, so I'm forwarding him this discussion

The vector map format for Locus is mapsforge (http://mapsforge.org/). I guess that GM doesn´t support it.
