I think it's too late to usefully create a log, as the newly downloaded maps on the phone have overwritten the maps that were giving problems.

No, I used ftp via my WiFi network (Ftp Server Pro on the phone and Filezilla on the PC), both to backup the Locus folder from the old phone and to restore it to the new phone. With WAPs supporting 802.11ac, I can get throughput of about 300Mbps over ftp to/from the phone, considerably better than with any cabled connection I've tried. I also used the same ftp client and server to move several other things (brouter segments and profiles, 60Gb of music files, ) from the old to new phone, and they came across without any problem, so I don't think the LoMap problem was with the file transfer.

Troubles & Questions / LoMap problems after moving Locus to new phone
« on: November 05, 2019, 05:39:53 »
I followed the instructions at to move Locus from my Pixel phone (original model) to a Pixel 4. I set the new phone up from scratch rather than moving my apps and configuration to the new phone. The problem I had was that after having completed all the steps in the Locus move instructions, although my purchased LoMaps were there under the Locus/mapsVector folder, and Locus could see them there (they showed up when I opened the Locus menu and selected Maps / Region etc), if I selected any LoMap and then asked Locus to center the map, rather than the LoMap it displayed an online map instead.

I had to download all the LoMaps again from the Locus store to be able to use them in Locus. Both old and new phones were running Android 10 and Locus Pro 3.40.2

I had a look at half a dozen of the empty files, and from the lat/long in the filename, they are all for locations in the sea just off the coast of countries for which I have maps and contours installed in Locus. I closed Locus, used a file manager to move all 639 files out of the Locus folder structure, and when I run Locus, everything seems to function exactly as before. If I don't detect any problems over the next few days, I'll delete the files.

I just noticed that as well as the .hgt files in the /Locus/data/srtm folder, there are hundreds (636) of zero byte files with a .empty extension, all with names of the form <lat><long>.empty - eg S44E149.empty. Can I safely delete these? Locus Pro 3.40.2 on a Pixel 2 running Android 10.

Still seeing this with 3.39.4. Only after doing a search and selecting one of the results, and zooming either + or - gets rid of the blank areas.

Troubles & Questions / Re: BRouter and route planner problem ?
« on: July 26, 2019, 09:48:40 »
I uninstalled and reinstalled BRouter for the latest 1.5.5 version, and used the new default location of /Android/data/btools.routingapp/files/brouter for profiles and segments. I then went into Settings / Navigation in Locus, changed navigation data source to BRouter, tapped on the three line menu at the right-hand side of the navigation data source option, tapped on the wrench icon, and activated Advanced settings. If you do that you will then find that you can tap on the "ROUTING PROFILE" dropdown arrow, and the BRouter profiles you have in /Android/data/btools.routingapp/files/brouter/profiles2 will appear in the list below the Locus profiles and can be selected.

Hi guys,
hmm, I'm unable to simulate it. LoMaps + internal theme ... simply search for an address and when map moves with animation to found place, this (your screenshot) is the result, right?
Yes, that's correct. LoMaps with bike+hike theme. Also Open AndroMaps with bike+hike theme. I've seen problem with both.
Any map set as overlay?
No, no overlay map.

Locus Pro 3.38.3 on Pixel 2 with latest June 2019 Android 9. When I do a search for a place in Locus, and then tap on the search result that I want, to position the map at that location, I frequently see square or rectangular blank areas on the map screen - they're not completely blank, they show a grid of light grey lines on a white background. See attached screenshot.

I can always get rid of the blanks by zooming in/out or out/in, and once I've got rid of them I can pan around and zoom in or out without the problem happening again. I've seen the problem both with LoMaps and with OpenAndroMaps. The problem doesn't happen every time I search, but often enough to be annoying.

Locus Map Pro 3.38.3 on a Pixel 2 running latest June 2019 update of Android 9. After buying and downloading a map, I press the back arrow at top left, but when I get back to the screen I've taken a screenshot of below, pressing the back arrow merely reloads the same screen. I've noticed this problem several times now. The only way to get back to the map screen is to use the Android overview button to view all running apps, terminate Locus from there, and then start it again.

Troubles & Questions / Re: Queued map updates download twice

Well, I removed three of the maps and downloaded them again, which meant that two of them were queued, and didn't get the same problem. This time the maps only appeared once in the queue and only downloaded once.

I wasn't doing anything unusual. I've used the same procedure in the past when map updates were available, queuing the downloads. If I delete the maps from Locus to try to repeat the problem, won't I have to purchase them again to download them again?

Troubles & Questions / Queued map updates download twice
« on: November 24, 2018, 21:08:59 »
I noticed today that map updates were available, so I downloaded the updates for the various Australian states and territories. Downloads that I initiated and waited for them to complete before starting the next were fine, but when I queued the remaining downloads, I noticed that they each appeared twice in the list of ongoing downloads, and they did each download twice. I definitely did *not* select each update twice when checking for updates. See screenshot below from the ongoing downloads screen. This is Locus Map Pro 3.34.1 on a Pixel 2 running Android 9.

Thanks. That got me what I wanted.

I had already ticked the "update elevation" box when importing the gpx, but how do I see the elevation profile for the route once it has been imported? I can't see any option to get it to display.
