@Jan: I gave 2 hiking target examples from BC, Canada many weeks back.

Until then, we didn't removed old offline address and POI searches. They are still there in its current old-school form. With those the app for sure would not be returning results from countries of which it hasn't downloaded map.

As a Computer Scientist and IT professional since more than 40 years I appreciate that your roadmap is havy lifting. But by the same token I can confirm that you and your search team completely fail re. rule #1: "Do not screw your customers!"
You are "proud" to not have removed offline POI and address search? Well, removing the last straw would have been complete suicide.
Keeping Google based search in its place as it worked for 10 years, alongside your new search, would have been professional. You would get feedback from the geeks who dare the new stuff, while offering propoer search results for all others, while you do your homework for step #2 and #3.
And if there should be pride and emotions in the way of doing that: both do not pay your bills. Be smart instead.

PC browser goes to GD folder from Aug 2nd, version 4.18.0, not 4.18.1, even on PC.
Or do you have a MAGIC link instead :-) ?

I'm missing the 4.18.1 AFA on GD, Menion.

I downloaded some 1" elevation data from here:

Go for Sonny's LIDAR DTMs instead. Much better than SRTM.

I think it is time for a drastic correction of approach here: whatever you do for iOS should not screw the 100000s of users from whom you make your living.
As long as the new search function is not professional, give the Android users back the Google based search.
Equal functionality is not a valid argument against this request, as the iOS version will lack essentials for years to come anyway.
At least give the existing and fully functional Google based search as an option to your (Android) users, PLEASE!
Android 11, 12, 13: mit x-plore geht der Zugriff, mit TC allerdings auch. Voraussetzung ist bei beiden, dass man die Berechtigungen bei Nachfrage zulässt. Ich habe schon erlebt, dass ich für jede einzelne App das private Verzeichnis-Betreten zulassen musste, also nicht einmal für alles unter /Android/data auf einmal.
Those are the changes:
- The OAM background from ZL 8 up now is rendered from the July 2023 edition of Christian's OAM vector maps (YES, OAM goes on - thank you, Christian!).
- Increased and earlier visibility of offshore energy and power sources for ZL 4 to 8, while reducing visibility of the land based installations for those low zoom levels.
Have a good time
Dies sind die Änderungen:
- Der OAM-Hintergrund für ZL 8+ ist nun aus Christians Juli-2023-Vektorkarten generiert (ja, es geht weiter; danke, Christian!).
- Intensivierte und frühere Sichtbarkeit von Offshore-Energie-Quellen für ZL 4 bis 8, wobei die Sichtbarkeit für die landbasierten Installationen reduziert wurde für jene Zoom-Ebenen.
Schöne Zeit
Bei mir zeigt Diskusage keine Details der privaten Ordner mehr seit Android 11 oder 12.
Deswegen nutze ich x-plore (mit Rechtefreigaben wenn die Fragen kommen).
Es gab eine Zeit da hat Locus die Themes für die Vektorkarten auch von SDs gelesen, falls so konfiguriert. Das war ab Android 11 eine Tragödie. Daraufhin hat Menion Locus befähigt die Themes als ZIP zu lesen. Dabei wird einmalig eine interne Kopie des extrahierten ZIPs in internen Speicher erzeugt. Das kann ein paar Sekunden dauern.
Ansonsten erlebe ich auch kein Geschwindigkeitsproblem bei SD-Benutzung.
Die Unterschiede zwischen den Themes sind weitaus massiver (Luxus versus schlicht).
Was ich in Deiner Situation machen würde:
1) x-plore installieren
2) dieser App alle Zugriffsrechte geben, auch auf /Android/data, auf INT und EXT SD
3) die Tortenkuchen-Funktion ausführen, die Verzeichnisbäume gemäß ihrer Größe sortiert aufzeigt (in der Annahme, dass Deine Karten nicht nur Luxemburg und Liechtenstein sind :-)
Das hilft zumindest zur Orientierung.

Well, I removed any V3 many months ago, so I would assume "no".

Not the most popular destination in fact ;-)
I deleted and re-installed yesterday (exact same size), still with broken views, but after another Locus restart it looks fine now. No idea what caused the issue.
TXs for your checking.
