Thanks for your quick reply!

Not sure what's the difference between 'residential area' and a building in OSM. Physically these are residential buildings. Locus displays these as empty land, OSM as well as Mapforge Maps  show these 'buildings'.

For the bus-stops I am missing 'route _ref' which shows all the bus lines stopping there. (see BusStop OSM2 .jpeg)

Thank you for the detailed description. Only some points about LoMaps
- LoMaps maps downloaded from Locus store contain clickable POIs (also the bus stops) https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_locusmaps
- You can search/filter LoPoints (the POIs distributed together with LoMap) via Menu - More - POIs Beta  https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:points:locus_maps_pois
- you can import own POIs as standard Locus points (from GPX, KMZ) https://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:basics:poisimport

Regarding missing building - please send me screenshots or OSM ways that are missing in the LoMaps. I'll check it.
Thanks for your clarifications!

I am using GPX-points extensively, but I cannot imagine to extract and convert thousands of points from OSM into GPX .
Especially when hiking, with no online connection, it's essential to have as much as possible information offline. So offering a link to OSM is nice, but useless without internet connection ...

Attached is a zip-file with screen-shots from my phone running Locus Maps, and one shot from OSM (Building OSM.JPG).  The arrows point to location of the missing buildings. The location is around 1.31729/103.91008 (Singapore).

At the moment I am quite disappointed with Locus Maps, as I see a very nicely done and powerful tool, but lacking proper maps and what's even worse (at least known to me) no way to use it with the same comprehensive map contents as OSM or OSMAND.
My current assessment:
 - LoMaps lack information
 - MapForge Maps only show POIs, but don't provide further info (not 'clickable')
 - I have also read that there is no way to import custom POIs (e.g. from Mapforge or own)
 - Online Maps might have more coverage, but you don't have online access all the time when traveling/hiking/... overseas.

So what is the solution for me?

This is what I tried earlier today ...
The missing buildings show up, but I cannot 'click' on the bus-stop at all ...
Using the same Theme with the LoMap, does not show the buildings

Thank you for your reply!
I tried a few themes, but the missing information never showed up.
Especially the missing buildings worry me...

Troubles & Questions / Information missing from LoMaps
« on: September 10, 2019, 13:23:40 »
I am new to Locus Maps (coming from OSMAND which I have been using for years), and just realized that certain information shown in OpenStreetMaps is missing.
There are some (older) buildings missing, bus-stops show some information but not the bus-lines stopping and very likely other info (talking about Singapore Map).

My question: how can I obtain / create / ... a complete map, an OSM-map having all buildings and all info on public transport?

Thanks!
