Yeh I am. Working on the compregps product but was hoping it was possible to unlock it to use because I believe it has a licence for three devices.

Thanks for the heads up and saving loads of time messing around.

Oh well, the quest will continue for other maps.

OK. Jumped the gun. I uninstalled the addon and reinstalled but it still didn't work. Then I ran the addon again and the maps are back.

Maps / Satellite maps gone??

I have just upgraded Locus after owning it for a week or two and using both Microsoft and Google's satellite/hybrid maps.

Off memory I had to install the map tweak addon to get the google maps to work in locus.

But now all those maps have gone. Even the microsoft ones which I believe were there without the addon.

Is this a problem with the addon not working on the new version or has the ability to use any satellite maps in Australia gone for good?

Back in the old days when i was using windows mobile, i used garmin with their topo maps and they had reasonably detailed tracks, fire trails etc and this is what I am after... well i hope to find. From my undertsanding our hema maps use garmin topo data. The garmin topo maps was in their own nrg format and requires unlocking so doubt thats possible to transfer to a format that locus will accept.

Thanks again fo your reply.

I tried the sydney ones but they weren't very detailed with tracks and roads. well i think i did.... but i have since tried the locus shop from inside locus just now and its coming up  "error - unexpected problem! please contact......" Will look again later when the shop is working again.

I've recently started using Locus after buying a few other similar programs on Android.

But I have found Locus to be the better pick of the bunch especially once the maps tweaks addon (extra maps added but limited amounts of downloading) are added so I bought the Pro version.

Now I go offroad a fair amount and have a good source of gpx tracks. So I have been pre downloading the area where the track is using the google hybrid maps. Only drama is the 10k limit and on occasions the tracks aren't so obvious if there are lots of trees around.

Are there any good raster maps of 200k or lower for Australia that work with Locus? I have access to some rmap topo maps of 250k but they are locked and won't work with locus even though I own them and have the unlock code. I can also test some hema maps but don't think they aren't in the right format. I have the option of ozf2 or ecw, neither work with Locus from my understanding.

And from what I have tried (well followed from google searches) it is not so straight forward to convert them to be compatible with a one stop conversion program???

I don't mind large downloads and I don't mind spending some money if they are worth it 4wding and off the beaten track.

OK. Makes sense why it doesn't show them then. Thanks for your reply.

I will try and find how to unlock to use in different gps programs but initial searches show this may be a long search.

The maps are licensed to use in 3 devices and my Android phone was going to be the third.

I have tried searching but can't seem to find anywhere describing the same issue I am having.

I have some RMAP files and have put them in the map folder but locus does not see them under personal maps.

Any ideas? The RMAP files need to have an rmap extension don't they?

These files are locked I believe but I have the unlock code but i believe the code gets asked for when the map gets openned??
