Hello, i join to this question. It would be extremely useful having Strava Heatmap available as an WMS overlay on top over any supported map (raster, vector or online).

Hi,

@passosk58: this is Locus Map forum, not Google Earth's, sorry.

@Bucky Kid: have you read this Locus blogpost >>? It's the only way how to get Strava heatmap in Locus. WMS is not possible as Strava does not provide WMS data source.

It's working for me as overlay. Thanks for the hint, although not all maps can be overlayed.

edit
Some offline maps allow the overlay while some not, what's making the difference? Docs is quiet.
Same with online maps - Google allows overlay, SmartMaps not.

Ah, ok. So to be clear: It doesn't work with all map types.

@Michal
Where can we find the list of non supported map types?

2. Select your overlay map
Select the function in Menu > More functions > Map Overlays.
Again you can choose any map available in the Maps Manager.
