Troubles & Questions / Re: Can I search OpenAndroMaps addresses?
« on: November 19, 2019, 13:57:07 »
Few facts

- LoMaps are not made primarily for an income. Their cost is computed based on hosting and distribution prices + small provision.
- because of this, we do not push users to download/purchase them. They serve as an easy way to get usable maps
- their pricing system is wrong, we know it and it will be changed in Locus Map 4 (not yet 100% decided how)
- offline search works well, but it is based on steps from city > street, not always usable. Current LoPoints are terrible (planned rework during Q2/2020). So I really do not think, that address & points have major effect that LoMaps are used.
- the problem I see is mainly that we did not yet open-sources our tools for creating points and addresses. Which I want to do, just time and priorities complicate it.
Howgh ...

Perhaps, LoMaps would be sold more, if  updated more frequently ( at least as OAM are ), and the subscription was available also for a time period, instead for a particular map release.

As the current business model kind of punishes OSM contributors, that make frequent OSM updates and quite need frequent map updates.

However I like LocusMap, I like OSMand  live map updates feature, together with OSM contributed bonus program ( even if I do not participate currently in either )

But what I know about business or marketing ?

If this would be implemented nobody would buy LoMap anymore.

Hello,
seems you try to compute route with an engine that requires internet. Not sure what exactly you try to do, anyway suggest to read about route planner in our manual, mainly this section that probably solve your issue.
