Troubles & Questions / Re: Joining Maps

I have had four maps in one folder, I think the limit is ten, but mine were not that large.
I wonder if the normal 2GB limit applies to the TOTAL file size in this case.
How large are your two files?

Now I gotcha! You want to look at the map on a real computer. Yes, that would involve a conversion of the sqlite, something I have not done. I am not a GIS professional, so at this point, I invite one of the heavy hitters to jump in here.

I'm still not sure which map you used to create your Swiss maps.
If the tweak did not give you your map back ( you may have to go to Settings>Map>Online maps to find out), we're done.
If it did give you your map back-

You could remove your two swiss maps and create a new map, complete with a zoom that shows entire country.
You could create a third map, that shows your "overview", and throw it into your "Swiss" folder.
Locus will "combine" all three.

If you get your map back, but it is one of those that allows online viewing, but not mass downloading,
I can show you how to defeat the system.

Some maps were restored with the "tweak". Do you have the "tweak"?

By "overview", do you mean just a lesser zoom level that would cover the combined maps?
Also, what was the source of your swiss maps, did you download on Locus?
And what type of map, Google Hybrid, Classic, etc?

If your swiss maps are sqlite, I believe if you were to create the directory:


and place both swiss maps inside that directory, they would remain seperate, but Locus would see them as one map.

If you "spend ten hours per day with Locus, every single day of my life", "on a moving mountain bike", while gazing at a cellphone screen, you're not going to be around long enough to benefit from all the Locus changes you demand.

I get a more current version of if downloaded from the in-app store.

I show this new Free version also as 2,0.0.1
Performs well on my HTC EVO 4G. Pan the vector map and the tiles snap right in. Change zoom and regenerates quickly.

To monitor CPU, I use "Usage Timelines Pro". A free version is available.
It places a handy 3 bar color graph in the notification bar, and if I pull open the notification page it gives a wider timeline.

Yes, I admit it, I am the same Starman.  :P

Disregard my previous comments about the file extension. On closer examination, my Astro file browser was truncating the file extension.

I keep both Free and Pro versions on my phone so that I can harass  :P  posters for both on the Android Market, and had updated both.
I just tried Free with a vector map, and it seemed normal.

Hi Menion-
Just joined this forum. After updating Locus, I also updated the one vector map I had installed:

To troubleshoot, when I move the map to the sdcard directory so that Locus cannot see it, it gets renamed:

Could the problem be in how the zipping and unzipping handles the double extension?

Also, the big cpu usage for me seems to be my Kaspersky Mobile Security. When I terminate it, Locus function returns to normal
(with the vector map still hidden)
