Hi Guys
Thanks for the quick response, My Google Pixel 6a is running Android 13, and it took me a little while on how to figure out how to view the Locus maps folder. I managed it after doing a bit of research, and I can say that all the UK OS maps have 2 files, the "info" and "sqlitedb" so 32 files in all, which would relate to my 16 maps.

Troubles & Questions / UK OS maps not showing

I wonder if anyone can help, I have 16 UK Ordanace Survey maps paid for and downloaded through Locas Classic,
My previous phone was the Pixel 4a and I never had any issues.

I bought the newer however Google Pixel 6a, and now only 6 of the 16 are shown, the other maps show grey tiles and "unknown problem" I did re download all the 16 maps from the Locus store and have re installed the app, but the problem persists,

I am aware there are updates for most of my maps, but these require re purchasing and I was under the impression that using older maps wouldn't be an issue. As an aside my 4 LoMaps and 4 OSM maps are working perfectly, so this seems to be a UK OS map problem

If anyone can give any pointers I would be most grateful, I have searched the forums but couldn't find anything that helped.

Regards and thanks in advance.

I gave it a try, but I'm not sure what what to do, I assume that you add a point by clicking an area on the photo that corresponds to an area on the map, sorry for being to stupid  :oops: any chance of a quick guide please  :P
Does this mean I can take a photograph from a mountain summit and after calibrating the photo, use it as a map overlay ?
If this is the case, can some kind soul outline the steps on how to achieve this, i'e a small tutorial on calibrating the photo and using it with Locus ?

Thanks for the back up function, really handy  :D
Thanks again Menion, I changed it to a track and all is well  :D
Hi folks
When I import a route I have created, it shows up fine, but there are annoying red circles, which must indicate points, which is a distraction. Is there anyway to hide them and just show the route.

I too have noticed a quicker battery drain when recording a track as opposed to just checkin my position. Still a great app though  :P

Thanks for the prompt reply Menion. I managed to re-import my tracks that I made with my Garmin Etrex GPS unit, which I also carry on my hiking trips. I shall try and be more carefull next time. Is there any way to back up the database in case I or someone else makes the same mistake in the future ?
Thanks again on a great app, the best on my phone, well worth double the price. 8-)   :D

Hi Folk, first post here, I have made a silly mistake and deleted my tracks, is there anyway I can undelete. The track I wanted to delete was not ticked and the ones I didn't want to delete where ticked, as soon as I agreed to the delete confirmation box, I new I had made a mistake. i know its a long shot, but its worth a shot. Best App on the market by a mile, thanks.
