Are we talking about vector maps or tile maps?
For Vector Maps you can increase the text size under Settings->Maps->Map objects->Text size and Icon size under Settings->Maps->Points and Tracks->Map icon size .
You can also increase the general map resolution (which to me only makes sense for tile maps) under Maps->Advanced features->increase map resolution. You can also put a Quick Settings button for this in your sidebar on the main screen to be able to toggle the map resolution with just 2 clicks. I use hat quite often, when I´m changing between vector maps and tile maps, as the tile map text and icons is too small on my phone. I think that has to do with the screen resolution of the phone you are using.

Thanks Menion,
I´ve already read that thread, but was hoping that I could reproduce Patrick´s solution, who posted that it worked for him after the latest huawei patch. I do admit though, that it would be a bit of a worry to know that the next patch could break locus functionality again.
So the next hope is that you´ll find a way to fix the problem ;-)
But it would all be no good anyway, if the GPS on the P20 Pro had other issues. The only review I could find online (on was not too positive about the GPS. But I don´t like to rely on just one source. So maybe someone here can pass on his/her experience with the P20 Pro...?

I´m thinking about buying a Huawei P20 Pro, but one of my main criterias would be that the GPS runs smoothly. So if anyone here is already using a P20 Pro I´d be very grateful if you could answer a few questions:
1) How good is the GPS accuracy?
2) Does the P20 Pro support Galileo? I googled this one and found very contradictory statements.
3) Any known GPS / Locus issues with the P20 Pro?

It says on his website that he is taking some time off from the 23rd of April until the 24th June. Maybe that´s why you can´t reach him?

Thank you!
I knew it was possible, but it was so long ago that I couldn´t remember how i did it last time.
To me the the gear icon and the "settings" text was one and the same, so I agree with you - some form of separation would be useful.

Troubles & Questions / Change source in route planner
« on: May 03, 2018, 21:44:15 »
is there any way to change the routing source (e.g. Brouter to Mapquest) from within the route planner or is it really necessary to go through the main menu? I was sure that this was possible at some point, but can´t find it anywhere in the route planner now.

Das meiste ist ja schon gesagt, aber du solltest natürlich auch beim Garmin dein Barometer vor der Tour kalibrieren. Sonst können sich auch dort Ungenauigkeiten einschleichen.

Hi Menion,
It´s not a big problem to me, just wanted to report it in case other people have the same problem.
It does not terminate the app, it just says that it´s not responding and gives me the option to wait / close / report after about 30 seconds to a minute. I pressed wait a couple of times, but the app stays frozen.

I have just tried out the new world map feature and in my case it makes my phone (galaxy S4, android 5) crash when zooming in. I´ve tried it with 2 world maps (my own google maps tile map and the world 1-9 Map) with the Germany south vector map from the locus store. As soon as I zoom in past the point where it should change from world map to vector map locus freezes and then crashes. This does not happen always, but most of the time.
Zooming out does not seem to cause any problems.

You are the best, I´ll just wait until it´s implemented. Even as it is, the new presets are already a big help. I think this new feature has great potential for everyone who uses Locus for more than one activity.

@ Holger
Wenn ich Menion richtig verstehe soll man die Inhalte von der Locus News Website bald deaktivieren können und nur Kartendownloads etc. werden angezeigt.
Wenn du die entsprechenden Funktionen gar nicht nutzt solltest du also auch keine Benachrichtigungen erhalten. So wie ich es sehe beschränken sich die "wichtigen Infos" bisher eh auf Kartendownloads.
Sprich wenn du keine Karten herunterlädst solltest du auch in Zukunft wieder deine Ruhe haben.

Discussion/New features / New Presets feature
« on: April 09, 2017, 21:41:38 »
now that the weather is starting to get better, Locus gets used more again as well.
So I finally sat down and had a proper look at the new presets feature - and it´s just awesome!
One click and i´m in cycling mode - with my cycling dashboard, map rotation and lots of other settings that are useful when biking. Another click and I´m back in hiking mode. Thanks a lot for this feature!
I know it´s still in beta status, but I´d like to ask for two more presets:
1) Hardware compass on / off - I prefer the hardware (magnetic) compass when hiking, but with map rotation on whilst riding the bike the GPS compass works better.
2) Track recording profile - Logically i´d want my hiking profile when i´m hiking and my biking profile when i´m cycling.

I know I can easily change those settings with a couple of clicks - but hey, it´s the whole point of the presets that I don´t have to anymore, isn´t it?

Keep up the great work!

Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Online Map Download
« on: January 19, 2017, 12:33:02 »
That´s kind of what I expected to hear  :(
But wouldn´t it be easily possible to allow multiple map downloads? You´d only need an extra screen where you can manage your current downloads. I´m just asking, as a high zoom level download can easily require a few days and in the meantime you can´t download any other maps...
I´d be willing to pay for a higher tile limit, but as far as I am aware you can´t increase the tile limit for google map downloads or can you?
I also think it would be useful to mark a map that hasn´t been downloaded completely as incomplete on the map screen or at least the map details screen.

Troubles & Questions / Locus Online Map Download
« on: January 19, 2017, 12:07:01 »
I have a couple of questions about download an online map (e.g. google maps).
I´m trying to download a larger map area in higher zoom levels, so the 10000 tile limit was reached and I can´t continue until tomorrow - which is fine for me, as I have plenty of time until I need the map.
So here are the questions:
1) How can I see that a map download is unfinished? When I check the Map details there is no mentioning of an incomplete map.
2) I would like to download another map (from a different source, e.g. OSM), but whenever I click on the "download" button I just get told that there is still an unfinished download (of course there is...) and I can only select "delete", "cancel" or "continue" . Does that mean I can´t download another map until the first download is finished, even if the other map is from a different source?
