Maps / Re: [MAPS] - Vector maps
October 17, 2011, 15:20:09
Can someone tell me what is the name of the vector map format Locus supports?

I know they have the .map extension but what is the official name of this?

How can someone create this format? Which program is able to save it?

Quote from: "menion"two, three days max ;)

I've just downloaded it and the map is beautiful...

Just for curiosity, can you post me the provider XML file to learn from it?

Thanks a lot,

Any timeframe for the program update? A "survival" tour starts in 20 days...
His name is Peter Busai and his email address is peter.busai(at)

He speaks english and is looking forward your mail.


I've contacted the owner of the website (   and he sent me the following xml, which should work in Locus with his site:

   <provider id="1000" type="0" visible="true" required="true" background="-1">

If I open a tile manually (eg. I actually get the image.
If I add this xml to Locus I'll be able to select the map, but after the "Loading..." phase I get an "Unknown problem".

Can you help me what is the problem with the file?

The website's owner is also willing to help to ease the life of Hungarian Android users so any suggestions would be welcomed.

Thanks for your help.
