Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.10.+ ( 06/2022 )
« on: June 17, 2022, 10:50:18 »
"Fine-tune" terminology. Why? I guess to distinguish from Route Planner. But imo it's a weird choice. After all, it is a track editor. And e. g. I don't expect split/merge under fine-tune.
OK, we're renaming it to "Edit track". It is more generic than "repair" or "fine-tune" and the tool in which it is done is called "Track editor". Hopefully this will suit the majority.

As for terminology, what Viajero says, same preference by me. Imo the track editor isn't just fine-tuning. Fine-tune to my ears sounds less like a serious tool but more like "fiddling around", but I'm not a native EN speaker.

Btw any plans to allow undo/cancel save in track fine tune editor 😉? Changes there are instantly applied.

Screenshot and GPX attached. In the GPX, every TP has "<ele>10.00</ele>" - which Locus seems to misinterpret. I think not so serious, totally flat tracks are rather rare.

Troubles & Questions / Displaying the same item multiple times
« on: May 06, 2022, 14:03:32 »
Can someone explain why I'm getting an item, in this instance a toilet, displaying multiple times, sometimes with the same or different graphics.
It feels like I've got 3 maps here, but only 1 displaying?
Can I disable the other 2? How do I understand which is from where?

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.8.+ ( 04/2022 )
« on: April 20, 2022, 08:39:18 »
I'm quickly testing it and it seems to work correctly even for planner routes. You may give a try and modify "speed_for_moving_cursor_when_gps_off" parameter in the Locus/config.cfg file to something like "speed_for_moving_cursor_when_gps_off=3.0" if this makes a difference.

identical dashboard & custom screen buttons > ah thanks. I'll have to get rid of this old "Custom screen" system soon  >:(

@Viajero Perdido
I see the problem probably. When you plan a really short route where are none! navigation commands (no instruction to turn) and you have disabled generating of navigation commands by the shape (settings > navigation > advanced > Frequency of commands), app does not recognize route as navigation route so it starts a guidance mode instead. Hmm ...

This looks like quite confusing behavior. I'll change it to the next app version and when you select "navigation", it will always start this mode even without a valid navigation command.

I know I know, sorry. It should be already fixed in the latest beta version and the new version is in preparation.

I agree with michaelbechtold. Maybe not so nice, but definitely a little more detailed. Anyway as you may see on your screenshots, there are some graphical glitches that I was not yet able to solve. Hope that current style is not a problem.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.8.+ ( 04/2022 )

Long tap on map content to toggle last two maps is nice! A little problem though: I believe when Locus restarts and maybe also when I select a new overlay map, you forget the previously used map and replace it with the overlay map. That doesn't make much sense, I never want the overlay to move into one of the toggle spots.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.7.+ ( 03/2022 )
« on: March 28, 2022, 17:45:29 »
Switching between maps is something I do very frequently on the trail, most of the time toggling between OSM and a satellite map. I believe this is a very frequent operation in Locus, especially now that you have these gorgeous satellite maps in Gold without google hacks. Anyway, map changing has become a bit of a cumbersome multi-tap operation recently: tap on the map icon, tap on the current map name (feels a bit illogical here), find new map in the list, tap on new map name. One could probably put the quick map change function in a toolbar, but that doesn't make the tap orgy less complex really.

How about using a long tap on the map icon (currently unused) to toggle between the previously selected map and the current one? That would make things super-easy and fast if all you need is two maps, like OSM and Satellite.

Maps / The OAM world map Winter edition is online
« on: February 27, 2022, 18:31:48 »

These are the major changes in version 202202-1.0:
- The OAM base maps are from Feb. 2022 for Europe and from Jan. 2022 for the rest of the planet.
- In the high North hill shading showed extreme distortions from earlier data sources. Current elevation data provides a much better representation. In the end, hill are the only relevant thing of notice in those regions ...
- Missing tiles around the date line (+/-180 degrees) are available now. Many TXs to Emux (Mapsforge) and Robert (MOBAC) for amending their toolsets.
- The old naming scheme for world maps is no longer offered.

As always, feedback is very welcome.

My thanks to the author of this wonderful rendertheme - Maki!

After the post of the author of Tiramisu EOL, this topic has been corrected and developed.

The rendertheme has now been corrected with the latest changes in routes (hiking, MTB, cycling) in OAM with an update date of January 2022e.

Added new POIs, Bike-Park scale IMBA tracks, trails and lots of little things.

Because the theme is designed for a distant outdoor, all icons are always displayed as soon as they appear in the map data and in urban conditions can lead to oversaturation of the map and mutual overlap of icons. Therefore, use layers in the theme menu more actively and turn off unnecessary ones. Still, a topic for areas where POIs are scattered more widely.

From Tobias Kuen's Elevate family of themes, this theme is the closest to the Elements theme.

Tools / OpenOutdoorMap - Make your own mapsforge maps for Locus
« on: February 07, 2022, 21:22:52 »
In many weeks of testing I have developed a Windwos batch script to generate maps for Locus which are very close to maps probided by OpenAndroMaps. This script enables you to generate a topographic map for any area of the world.

The script and all necessary software will run on a "normal" Windows 10 PC. All details will be found on my website. Although the website is in German, you can translate the most parts easily and the script inself is mostly in English. You will find download links for the map-generation-script, all necessary other scripts and download links for all software packages.

The maps generated with this script will be named OpenOutdoorMap (OOM) . There is also a test-map for download.

I am happy to get any feedback und suggestions.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.6.+ ( 02/2022 )
« on: February 02, 2022, 14:20:29 »
I've today published a new version of the Locus Map 4 on Google Play. Today only for 25% of users, rest in next days. If anyone wants to test & play with it (or with the Locus Map Pro version), they are all already available on Google Drive!

Just for your info, why I do not communicate often as usual. Well, winter, some team planning, family require also some more time now, some illness and working on the system for one-time payments that consume most of my (not just) time. So nothing special and unusual, but just informing that app is still in progress   8)

Stay all healthy and don't be too much hidden at home like me, it does not worth it  ;)

Other features / car routing then direct line
« on: January 02, 2022, 21:06:41 »
Thank you for your efforts in this software, and I tried it and found it useful and wonderful, but in my country (Saudi Arabia) there are large desert areas without roads and sometimes we need to go to a place inside that desert, and BRouter and other routing solutions does not support routing for places where there are no roads, so I have a suggestion to implement a solution that other implementations have of route route and then put a direct line to the position that has no routes next to it, and this solution is found in many applications such as Navitel and Osmand (example):

I contacted the developer of BRouter and he replied that this option is only possible by application developers,see:

Is it possible to develop this feature to be available through your application LM Pro?
Thanks and regards

Themes - Vector maps / Re: [Theme] Voluntary UK
« on: December 03, 2021, 19:05:56 »
The latest versions of the Voluntary theme are now available in the first post in this thread.
They have been revised for the excellent V5 maps from OpenAndroMaps.

In V5 maps, hike, bike and MTB routes can be displayed and highlighted independently of each other. The highlighting can optionally be colour-coded in the Hiking and Cycling styles.

I have updated the naming conventions and file locations. If installing into Locus, please delete all earlier versions first (long press in theme manager).

Other features / Re: Android 11+, changes
« on: November 27, 2021, 22:43:41 »
I would love it if ALL path configuration would be on one options page, with a clear terminology (eg "Internal storage / removable storage"), with the paths visible (currently they are hidden behind question marks), but clearly just informational, with information on free space, used space.
If there's no removable storage, nothing can be changed (?), then the page is just informational.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.3.+ ( 28. 7. 2021 )
« on: September 06, 2021, 12:24:30 »
Do you use Lomaps maps? Unfortunately, it doesn't work without them. Must be in the map folder.
Ah, thanks that's the reason. I deleted Lomaps the other day,I always use OAM because MFV4. And if you display offline Lopoints via the eye symbol, poi from both databases are shown, ie many duplicates.

Maps / World overview map summer edition 2021 is available - enjoy
« on: August 30, 2021, 14:07:50 »

Here are the most relevant news – feedback welcome:

Release notes 202108-1.0

The density of settlement names has been reduced considerably for areas with names in two alphabets (latin plus cyrillic, arabic, chinese), hindi, etc.) and higher settlement density.

The names of places (not in the sense of settlements) now appear (*) in areas that are settlement-free, with a brownish border. With this edition, farms are also shown this way (hardly in Eastern China, Central Europe, etc., but in Australia and the US Midwest, e.g.).

The regional addons to the ZL-10 world map with a transparent top zoom level for Locus are dropped. In Locus 4 there is the max. re-scale mechanism which makes this overhead unnecessary. In Locus 3 the top level is zoomed in for 2 zoom steps before the vector map becomes visible as well.

At the suggestion of Sonny (specialist for DTM) the world maps get a prefix that makes the names less cryptic. For example, W1-10-J70.mbtiles becomes OAM-World-1-10-J70.mbtiles. However, for a few releases I will provide both naming schemes to give users more time to adjust the settings in their apps (with the discontinued model being marked as such).

Correction of the nationality of Agaléga Islands (SC -> MU).

(*) well, since April in fact, but undocumented
