this sample does not work for you? Do not forget to set "Package"

Ahh thanks for the example, of course it works! I must have been blind to not see this in the list of supported functions, although I searched it before...

In general, is this the preferred way for HW-Buttons interaction now? Will the method over config.cfg be deprecated in the future?

If you are familiar with for example Tasker application, you may already use it. Documentation how it should look on Locus Map side is published here.

I'm familiar with tasker. I use a NFC-triggered Tasker-Task to start recording and custom livetracking and apply a preset and activate a dashboard when my phone is mounted on the handlebar of my bike. So I guess I'm also quite familiar with the Action Tasks. However, I don't get from the documentation how to activate this "quick actions menu" from tasker. Maybe there is a new undocumented value for the "function" task?

Hey menion,

in the last version's beta some guys found a nice little "quick functions panel" which could be added to the top or side panel. It is also present in the current Beta but not in Pro as far as I can see.
You said it was published by accident and was meant to be activated by hardware buttons only.
I am very interested in this feature! Is this already possible in current beta? If yes, how to enable it in config.cfg? I assume I could trigger it with bluetooth hid device?

I'm not so much interested in adding it to a panel, but it should not hurt anyways?

Are there plans for a v4 maps version?
Would be nice since Openandrompas will stop producing v3 maps mid 2019.

Thanks @john_percy for your feedback on the special Locus enhancements!
There is a main thread for mapsforge v4+ development now...but I'd like to keep this thread open because it's about themes and I think not all v3 themes (especially the themes which use locus-specific enhancements) will work with v4 library.

I guess we have to wait for menions actions in the next months and try themes again when there are new (beta) versions available...

According to this blogpost on (, OAM plans to stop producing v3 vector maps as of mid 2019.

Fortunately, Locus is able to deal with v4 maps (provided as "ML" - maps from OAM) using the standard mapsforge v4 library (without the Locus-specific enhancements like automatic map loading). Btw.: what other enhancements does the Locus v3 implementation offer compared to the default v4 implementation? I remember something like rendering speed optimizations...what else?

The other thing is themes...currently I use some really nice Locus-specific themes I don't want to miss. I'd like to start a list of OAM-compatible themes and the availability of v4-versions. I try to update the list when I or others find out more details...

Ok thanks, thats ok for me! I just wanted to make sure that there's not something wrong with my generated gpx files.

I don't know if it is specific to this version, but there seems to be a problem with showing details of imported gpx tracks when there are newlines (\n) in the <desc></desc> part of the track.
There is an infinite scrolling and/or flickering visible in the track detail screen under the description text.

Imported points from gpx files with newlines in the <desc> seem to be displayed ok!

I noticed and fixed one similar issue today, so maybe it is already solved.
But just to be sure .. is there any sample link I may test? Thanks

I only use this with my own little php script ( on my poor little arm homeserver, so I'd like to avoid posting an URL here, I will send you a PN...

Are there any changes regarding Url-handling in favourites in the current version? I can't get locus-actions urls to work from favourites anymore.
In current version, if I click on a favorite containing a locus-actions url, I get an orange toast saying something like "could not find a suitable application for this action".
This definitely worked in the last version (locus-actions urls were handled without problems)!

Thank you for the hand drawn nav instructions fix! Works as expected now!

While on a mtb-tour today I noticed a problem with icons display in quick add points screen (see screenshot). Can you reproduce it?

FC right after init screen with latest BETA on Sony Z1C with Android 5.1.1 stock ROM. It is reproducable 100%.

Another thing: did you find time yet to investigate the nav point on hand-drawn route parts issue I mentioned some time ago?

Nice enhancements to the routeplanner, I like it very much!

But one thing: is it intentional that I can't create a nav point on a hand-drawn part of the route? After tapping on the instruction sign (for example 'turn left'), nothing happens! On other (routed via Brouter) parts of the route this works just fine!
