Manual on docs.locusmap.eu - v2 (published Q4 / 2015)
« on: April 29, 2015, 21:29:39 »
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 Michal,

after reading the geocache chapter, here my remarks ;)
- i miss discription of marked red rectangles
- i think text is better placed behind (2)

hmm so fast ... no sorry. I think, there are some services that grab content of web into PDF, but result will be probably bad. But later, once manual will be finished on 99%, I'll definitely look at it ...

EDIT: btw. enjoy your flight!

Navigation calculation does not require internet if you use BRouter. My reply refers to your yellow be-aware.

edit
The Navigation article does mention offline routing options, though.
In general: the manual is VERY good stuff!

Brouter only does route calculation, no navigation!
Navigation instructions are calculated by Locus but just based on the calculated route (or on any other gpx track) without knowledge of any road information.

Ok, Michael. My comment was about the capabilities of brouter and not about your personal preference ;-)
