Cursors / Icons / Voices / How to remove custom icons?
« on: September 01, 2019, 13:10:38 »

I did some experiments with custom point icons. I had a script create sets of icons. I copied 4 zip files, each containing 100 icons, to the icons directory.

I all works, but now I want to remove the icons. After running Locus the icons directory is empty, so I assume the contents of the zip files have been moved or imported somewhere.

How can I remove the icons from locus?


Troubles & Questions / Re: Locus Map doesn‘t close normally

I have run into the same problem. I had a navigation running, but could not find a way to stop it.

I tried closing Locus Map with pressing "back" twice. This left me with attached navigation notification, in an unknown language. (I have set Android and Locus to use Dutch.)

Attached image shows the notification.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Vector maps go blank when zooming out
« on: July 10, 2019, 20:32:07 »
I am having the blank map problem again. It sometimes happens when zooming.
Another case is when after panning the map, I tap on the "follow GPS" button. The map centers at the GPS position, leaving parts of the map empty.
Funny thing is that it's not empty tiles, it has diagonal lines. The empty area does show hill shading (not very much, shown area is almost flat). The whole area is within the same map.

Wow, that was quick!  :)

I had just received 3.38.2. After receiving John's reply I scanned for updates, and received 3.38.3. Zooming is working perfectly now. Thanks.

Troubles & Questions / Vector maps go blank when zooming out
« on: May 28, 2019, 20:39:26 »

When I zoom out (using the [-] button or pinch zoom or the volume down key) all tiles for the new zoom level are blank. When zooming in, all tiles reappear. I tried this with LoMaps, OpenAndroMaps and Freizietkarte, all offline vector maps. I also tried different themes. All with the same result. The moment the map scale shows "10 km" the map turns blank.

Device is a Motorola Moto G5S Plus, full HD display.
Android version is 8.1.
Locus Map is Pro version 3.38.2.

I attached a video showing the problem.

What is going on here?



I tried editing a track from the track detail menu. I can delete points or parts of the track.

I also wanted to move some points and insert points (because GPS signal was lost some times during recording).
Every time I move or insert a track point, and confirm, a message pops up saying "Process succeeded". But the track is not changed.

If I edit the track from the map screen, I can move or insert track points. This time after the "Process succeeded" message the track is changed.

Why does insert/edit track points only work from the map screen, and not from the track detail menu?

I am using Locus Map Pro version 3.36.2 on a Motorola Moto G5S Plus, running 32-bit Android 8.1.0.


Troubles & Questions / Re: Offline OSMAnd sqlite map not found

Of course, it's a raster map.

In another thread I found that I have to copy the sqlite file and the xml as well.

Thanks, it's working now.

Thank you for your ultra fast reply.  :D

Sorry, my mistake. Not all sqlites are the same...

I created an OruxMaps sqlite map. I copied the .db file into mapsVector, but that also isn't shown.

Troubles & Questions / Offline OSMAnd sqlite map not found
« on: March 13, 2016, 12:24:02 »

I am using Locus Map 3.15.3, on a Moto X Play running Android 6.0.

I configured the storage folders to be on the SD card. In the directory I created a subdirectory Mapsforge. In that directory I installed downloaded *.map files.
When selecting Maps, Offline tab I can see the Mapsforge directory, and when I click the directory, I see the individual map files.
So far so good.

For hiking I created a map in the OSMAnd sqlite format, using MOBAC (Mobile Atlas Creator). I created another subdirectory OSMAnd under mapsVector and copied the *.sqlitedb file created by MOBAC into that directory.
When I restart Locus Map the app reports that changes have been found in the maps folders. I then select the Locus folder on the SD card.
But when I select Maps, Offline tab I only see the Mapsforge directory. The OSMAnd directory is invisible.

How can I use the OSMAnd sqlite map in Locus Map?
