Troubles & Questions / Automatic map loading issue
October 20, 2022, 12:03:23

I have two vector maps.
One for the North of France and one for the south.
I have activated the option Automatic map loading.
Locus doesn't display automatically the right map.
I must go to the map menu and select the map.
And locus cannot display the north and south map at the same time (See Screenshot).
Best regrads

I use the Locus Map Classic with Android 12
Troubles & Questions / Missing Tools Button

Hi Menion

Very nice job with the latest version 2.16,
But in the Data Menu, Items Tabs,
  (1) it missing the tools button on each line, to import the file.
  (2) You display the number of selected file in red if this number is greater than 1. Is it possible to display this number even if
        i  selecte one line.
Best regards
Troubles & Questions / Icon size
July 01, 2013, 08:23:43
Hi menion

Did you change the behavior of the field scale in the vector map theme file for the <symbol> section :
<symbol src="file:/symbols/hospital.png" force-draw="1" scale="1.5" />

Because since the new version the icon are smaller !

Troubles & Questions / Share tools

I installed tree time Sygic (Navigation Software) on my Galaxy S3 (Android 4.1.2)
In the share tools in Locus, i have tree lines with Sygic, like the picture below :

The two first line start Sygic, and Sygic doesn't calculate the route.
The third line start Sygic, and Sygic calculate the route.

Is it possible to remove the two first Sygic line.

Is it possible to add a parameter Hysteresis (in % of speed threshold), or add the accapality to set the speed threshold.
To avoid changing several times zoom level when driving at a speed close to the speed threshold.

I have some problem with the Locus version 2.6

1) I use the french vector map, and i select the kml file attached with the data item menu.
The track and the POI are are displayed correctly.
When i move the map to the left (more than halft of the screen), all POI and the track disappear,and if i move the map to the right the POI and track appear !!
If i import this kml file i do not have this problem

2) I select a "Data Items" with POI and tracks, and when i restart Locus there are no POI and track on the screen.
    Locus does'nt restore the items selected before the restart.

3) When i try to import the attached kml file or other kml file, Locus said "Imported 1 tracks" but in the Track and Points Tab there are no data.
   I must leave and launch the Data Screen to see the imported track.
   In the kml file there are POI and in the "Points Tab" there are no POI !!
   (In the Import Data dialog The option "Only Display" is not checked)
   And on the map the POI icon are red circle and not the custom POI in the KML file.
   If i use the import with "Data Items" the customs POI icons are ok.
   Is not possible to modify the POI, and the only possibility is delet !!!

I attached a kml file.

Is it possible to Locus to scan the Google drive pinned docs files, for the map items.


After importing a map with the Map Manager menu and  Items tab, without data connection, the POI icons are very small dot !!!


1) The parameter Language doesn't work !
I change the language from French to English. I restart Locus and the texts are still in French !

2) After import a map with POI from the Map Manager and the Item tab, the POI icons are always in small size even if the parameter Icon Size is Big.

3) Is it possible to display the keyboard when adding a new point to change the default name.
Because if i seletect the name of the point, the key keybord is display, but the text is not selected, so if i want input a new name i must delete all char of the default name.

My question is : How does text display with vector maps based on the zoom level ?
Because I find it strange how Locus works.

You find the screenshot that explains this.

You can see a map of a region of France with the city of Mulhouse :

After increasing the zoom level, the name of the city of Mullouse disappears !

After increasing the zoom level, all city names disappear !!

After increasing the zoom level, the name of the Mulhouse city is come back !!!

How explain that ?

1) Is it possible to have the ok/cancel on the top of the screen to avoid to hide the keyboard to see the ok/cancel button

2) is it possible to have the direction arrows with the keybord during input text.

3) is it possible to have the text "Unknwon adress" selected in the creation of new POI, to  avoid to erase "Unknow adress" char by char!

Best regards

I think there is a bug in the track screen when you delete all the track, the screen is fully white!!

Locus Pro 2.5

I create a track with custom POI icons.
I import this google track with the Locus function Google My Map
I can see perfectly my track and my custom icons, but i think the icon size is not correct,  they are display with the small size even if i selected the big size the in the locus parameter.
But if i restart Locus all my icons are replaced by the information Locus icon.
After a short investigation i think that the problem is that the url of the custom icons use https.
I export my google track in a kml file, i replace in the kml file https by http, i import this kml file in Locus and the icons are ok.

Thank by advance
