Prawn, yes, I totally got the name round the wrong way in my reply!... Oops.

I'm glad the others were able to help you, because I'm still on the learning curve. As stated by in a previous reply, I can't recompute the route when offline, but if I create the route at home (connected to WiFi), and then save it, I have fully-functional voice guidance directions. This really is the best nav app I've used. Now, if I can just figure out how to make the house numbers visible again.... lol. (I upgraded to the paid version and they disappeared.)
Oh, thanks, guys. Looking forward to trying those directions! Will let you know how I get on. Appreciate your time. :)

OK, I finally sorted it. I didn't have to install BRouter, Druki, so that was good.

Prawn, I had visited that page before, but, to be honest, I didn't find it terribly helpful..... hence my post on this forum. However, I spent almost an hour just through trial and error figuring out how it all worked. I tested my results on a short drive this afternoon (offline), and it all worked well, so I'm chuffed.

I typed up my own little tutorial so I don't forget the steps!

Thanks again for your advice, guys. I do love a helpful community. :-)

Warm regards,

Me :-)
Troubles & Questions / New Locus-Maps-User Questions
November 03, 2013, 22:05:09
Hi, all. :)

I have recently downloaded the Locus Maps app for Android. I am using it on a Nexus 7. Anyway, I'm trying to get my head around the basic operations. I have several questions, if you don't mind.

This weekend coming, I have a garden walk to go on. This involves driving to about 20 different locations in my district, where I'll be walking around the individual gardens. I have managed to create and save all the addresses as points. I want to navigate (using voice navigation) using all these points. I just can't figure out how to create an actual track containing all these points. All the points show on my map screen (I downloaded the map for offline use), but I can't actually get Locus to navigate me through them all, due to my total lack of understanding!

The other question I have is about offline voice navigation. I can get Locus to voice navigate between a start point and end point (but don't know how to add waypoints [points] in between) when I'm online (I ticked the save permanently box when I did it), but when I switch my wifi off and attempt to see if it will guide me offline, it gives me an error message. What, oh, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance..
