Title: Vector Map Style
Post by: sebbo on March 12, 2012, 10:57:48
Is it Possible to change the style of vector maps being displayed?
atm its like this:

which is kinda difficult/not possible to see the difference between roads, tracks and paths while driving offroad

much more usefull would be the view as on openstreetmap itself:

Hi,

this topic was just discussed in german subforum: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1683 (http://forum.asamm.cz/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=1683)

Just a short summary:
- Locus uses the library from mapsforge.org for everything that has to do with vector maps
- at the moment, mapsforge is working on an update to their library. With this new library, it should be possible to change the display of vector maps
- but there is no ETA for new library
- conclusion: change display of vector maps is currently not possible, but should be in future

Cheers, berkley
