If you can access the folder with the maps stored in it, rename (eg) england.osm.db to england.osm.dbx or similar.
Be aware that this will affect offline searching for places, and also pop up info on points.
You could rename the .db file associated with your other map as an alternative. Try it and see which suits you best.

Troubles & Questions / Tapatalk

Tapatalk has gone funny.
I had to reinstall it to get it to work and now it won't log in to the Locus forum.
See screenshot for error. I can access the forum via the web interface but it really doesn't work well on a mobile.

I believe OAM maps only include boundaries of admin level 1,2,3,4. I'm not sure about Lomaps but you can experiment with the theme.

Level=1 (supranational) is not rendered.
Levels 2,3,4,5,6 are rendered in this theme if they appear in the map data.

You can try the attached. Use in the same way as the contours files.

Lomaps and OAMaps identify themselves internally. The header of the theme States what type of map it is for. The two themes can't be combined AFAIK.

You can try these contours-only themes. Select an offline map as overlay, either a LoMap or one from OpenAndroMaps, and then select the appropriate Contours theme. You'll need to use srcatop, I think, as the blending type.

Many thanks again for your help. May I ask a new question?
I want to overlay administrative boundaries on the map. How do I do that?
Sorry, I also start a new topic:
https://forum.locusmap.eu/index.php?topic=7912.msg67548#msg67548

Do you think it's possible? Sorry, I don't know more about map configuration, so I can't seem to complete this function.

Could you please help me ? Many thanks!
I've made a reply in your new topic.

Do you have a map with administrative boundaries that you want to use as an overlay?

Add-ons / Re: LoPOI POI Editor for Locus Map ?
« on: April 11, 2022, 13:45:47 »
I emailed the developer and got this response:

Google decided that it violates impersonation policy. We discussed it with LocusMap developer and provided several documents to Google but they still not convenienced. More details here - https://help.locusmap.eu/ticket/26121

So I do not expect Google will unblock the app without any major community involvement for similar cases (since my case is too small to launch it).

Website: https://www.vastuf.com/projects/lopoi/ but it appears to no longer be on Google play. My copy still send to work on Locus Classic.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Rotate map - doesn't rotate map
« on: March 29, 2022, 16:26:46 »
I'm afraid that though I understand the reasons for it, I find this new behaviour considerably less than intuitive. It caught me out only yesterday, and I ended up thinking the compass wasn't connecting to Locus.
So, if map is centred then centring button is blue. If the rotate button is tapped, map rotates and rotate button goes blue. All fine so far.  If map is dragged, centred button changes colour back, rotation is locked, but rotate button remains unchanged and blue. My suggestion is rotate button remains blue but with a small lock on it? Or, not my preference, a toaster message to say "map rotation locked"?
Also - and this is a bug, not a UX preference - if map is not centred and the rotate button is tapped, the rotate button turns blue, and the map rotates to what seems to be the last direction recalled from when the map was centred. It certainly does not rotate to the correct direction in any case. That also caught me out a few weeks ago and it only now that I've decided what was wrong. Does that need a toast, "live map rotation disabled if map is not centred" and the rotation turning off?
All this above was tested on Locus Pro, not Gold.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.7.+ ( 03/2022 )
« on: March 23, 2022, 11:02:38 »
I'm not sure that I'm aware of seeing the small icons elsewhere.  In the previous version, I think the tiny icon was an overlay(?) on the theme icon and I never thought it was clickable. The question to me is how to show it's not clickable.

@Menion The three dots are self explanatory, but the non functioning icons are not!

Good that legends inside zipped themes are once again supported!
However, I keep thinking that I ought to tap on the small green map "legend" icon to view the legend. (I *know* I should tap on the triple dots.) I don't think it helps that I've just had to tap on a similar icon in black to get to the theme chooser.

@Menion
I removed the Voluntary theme completely and then reinstalled from Locus store. Relevant themes are Voluntary V5, Voluntary LE, Velocity V5, Velocity LE. (Other versions should not have been in the zip, my mistake). No green legend icon, "Map Legend" greyed out.
