Follow the instructions above the line in the first post. Ignore everything below the horizontal line. There is no need to generate your own routing data as you can download and install the two files you need directly from the two download links given.

Thanks. I hadn't realised that. I've added a comment to the first post to point that out.

New version available in the  first post in this thread.
Summary: Continued improvement in Mapsforge v 4 theme. Better and more specific displays of mountain huts and shelters, especially with Hiking style. Improvement with display of contours, peaks, tunnels, mini roundabouts, toll roads, national borders and more.

I have just checked in Locus. Using BRouter navigation in Locus, I can choose between Locus profiles (from @poutnikl, I believe) and BRouter profiles. The Locus profiles can be further customised using advanced settings. By experiment, it seems to me that by default the various Locus walking profiles take scenic routes while the built-in BRouter profile takes the shortest route, as @poutnikl says.

In BRouter advanced settings, Locus offers the following relevant profiles, which can be applied to different buttons, along with a choice of icons:
Locus Profiles
- Hiking-Alpine-SAC4
- Hiking-Mountain-SAC3
- Walking-SAC1-SHRP
- Walking
BRouter Profiles
- Shortest

Again, by experiment, it seems that the BRouter standard profile "Shortest" is its standard walking profile.

So Locus can be readily customised to offer a shortest walking route and a pleasant walking route, if one should so desire, as in the setup screen below. For details of how to do this, I refer you to the manual!

I believe that the background rectangle is not implemented for path text, despite the manual.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Brouter. Where it disappeared?

Did you try running Brouter directly, selecting the Download Manager option and downloading the routing data for the area you are interested in?

New version available in the first post in this thread.
The most significant changes are revisions to dashed lines for better compatibility with devices with later Android versions and the incorporation of Mapsforge v4 (multilingual) versions.
Plus, of course, numerous other small tweaks and improvements.

This is speed auto-zoom. See http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_settings:misc#speed_auto-zoom
It's now found in Settings > Controlling > Map screen > Zoom according to speed

Car routing data is not currently available as it does not work satisfactorily (I presume).
Car routing data is now available for download again at https://graphhopper.develar.org/#maps (as in the first post in this thread) along with
  • pedestrian or walking with priority for more beautiful hiking tours (hike)
  • trekking bike avoiding hills (bike2)
  • mountain bike
  • racing bike
This seems to work fine with the Locus add on (link in the first post again), though avoid highways/tolls/unpaved road options are not available.
Thanks again to develar.

1. rotate="false" works on the Mapsforge renderer (used for OAM Multilingual maps) but not the Locus renderer (used for LoMaps and OAM single-language maps).
2. pathtext fits text to single straight segments of the way. If the segment is too short the text won't fit and won't be displayed. If you reduce the size of the text, there is a greater chance it will fit into any given segment.
3. Your coding looks like it is written for the mapsforge renderer. The Locus renderer doesn't support position, priority or symbol-id. It does however support resolution-aware sizing using dp and scaling on zoom. Use something like:
<caption k="name" dy="14dp" font-style="bold" font-size="10dp" scale-font-size="18,1.1" scale-dy-size="16,1.15" fill="#000000" stroke="#80FFFFFF" stroke-width="2dp" />

I think dx may work in place of dy above but you'll have to test it.

For more (but limited) info see http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:map_tools:theming - which is unfortunately not altogether correct!

Troubles & Questions / Re: Reverse Track for navigation
« on: August 10, 2018, 16:52:51 »
The option to reverse the track only appears from "Create copy" from the "^" on the track detail screen which you get by tapping on the track displayed on the map. The screens are illustrated below.
It does not appear if you copy a track using the Data | Tracks | [select track(s) | [wrench icon] | [copy icon].
