Any hints, links??

Troubles & Questions / Problem with NAVIGATION
« on: June 02, 2012, 22:20:08 »
the functionality of Locus Pro seems to be enormous, the settings menu full of sub-settings - some of them I do not even understand...
However, I've been able to add free cyclo maps (*.map) to the vector maps directory and I'm able to address these new maps.
Now that I try to start a simple NAVIGATION from/to the problem starts: The route will be calculated and shown on the map, but there is no graphical guidance (arrows) and also no voice guidance - even it has been activated.
Is there a "hidden" setting that needs to be activated?

Ich habe die für mich relevanten *.map Files auf dem Smartphone drauf und versuche nun, die FUNKTIONEN zu verstehen.

Wichtig ist zunächst der Punkt NAVIGIEREN:

- die Definition von End-/Zielpunkt ist super flexibel, das geht kaum besser
- wenn ich dann "Rad" auswähle, wird die Route berechnet
- nun würde ich davon ausgehen, dass ich das Smartphone in den Rucksack lege und mich via AUDIO/Kopfhörer zum Ziel führen lasse

Leider erhalte ich keine Sprachanweisungen (obwohl aktiviert) und oben links in der Karte ist ein großes "?"
Was mache ich falsch oder fehlt noch eine Einstellung? Mich wunderte auch, dass die Karte nicht automatisch zum Startpunkt springt und grafische Richtungsanweisungen gibt?


Solved / Adding Vector Maps does not work in PRO version?
« on: June 02, 2012, 13:58:28 »
I'm running the PRO version of Locus, 2.4.0.
I've been downloading vector maps (MapsForge) from, e.g.
According to your instructions, I've been copying this file to Memory Stick/external_sd/locus/maps (with MyPhoneExplorer).
Reboot of smartphone.
Now I would expect the new vector map to be visible under folder "Personal" or "Vector", but no map appears???
I further tried to add a directory (with "+"), but when I select the checkbox at "/maps" and choose with YES, there is the message "process not successful".
Don't understand why this doesn't work in the PRO/paid version? Pls. advise asap.
