To the Locus and OpenAndroMaps community,

after many try-and-error runs I was able to adapt my "outdoor" theme and create the new "outdoorV4" theme, which can be used with the new multi-language mapsforge V4 OpenAndroMaps. It is compatible only with these new maps!
In general, I have tried to make the theme identical to the existing "outdoor" theme. Due to problems with many tags used for the configuration of font sizes and priorities, many small changes had to be made. You will find more details (i. e. which tags had to be ommitted) an my website [in German].
Please take the theme as a draft. I am happy for any comments, suggestions and there will be constant improvements. Maybe, I will adapt in the future also my existing "desert" theme.

Versions / Re: [APP] - version 3.37.+ ( 18. 3. 2019 )

[1] I see, you have declined the idea 5 years ago, but I thing GPS on/off is much more needed than the full GPS window. An additional button is needed :-)
@tapio - the GPS button has a long tap menu --> Turn on/ Turn off. Good enough? I only discovered this feature myself while writing this post. Useful for me too.

Aha, pokrok ničím nezastavíš :-(
Tak, jak si plánuji trasy já. vítám maximum viditelnosti mapy na displeji telefonu.
Ten panel mi překrývá část mapy.
K čemu je ten panel dobrý? On si jej někdo přál?

No, ona ta mapa je i s panelem skoro 2x vyšší než širší, takže já to jak omezení nevidím.

Určitě si to někdo přál, a hodně uživatelů je rádo, že tam panel je, protože mohou při plánování průběžně sledovat celkovou statistiku a náročnost trasy.

Bohužel, hodně lidí dává přednost jiným věcem než konkrétní jednotlivec. :-)

Where are the options for GPS filtering? I was not quite sure if the GPS filtering were in "GPS and sensors" before.
I thought it was in the hidden "expert menu". Maybe it now replaces the previous filtering setting in GPS and sensors > Altitude Manager > Altitude Filter?
I think the GPS position filtering has been moved from ( by default hidden ) expert menu in LocusMap Beta to GPS and sensors  menu. The altitude filtering in the GPS and Sensors/altitude manager  has its own independent filter.

Themes - Vector maps / mapsforge v4 themes for Openandromaps
« on: December 14, 2018, 13:41:56 »
According to this blogpost on (, OAM plans to stop producing v3 vector maps as of mid 2019.

Fortunately, Locus is able to deal with v4 maps (provided as "ML" - maps from OAM) using the standard mapsforge v4 library (without the Locus-specific enhancements like automatic map loading). Btw.: what other enhancements does the Locus v3 implementation offer compared to the default v4 implementation? I remember something like rendering speed optimizations...what else?

The other thing is themes...currently I use some really nice Locus-specific themes I don't want to miss. I'd like to start a list of OAM-compatible themes and the availability of v4-versions. I try to update the list when I or others find out more details...

themev4 version
HiLoin development, will be called 'active RT'
Totmcurrently unknown
outdoorX (outdoor/desert/navigation)currently unknown

Dear Locus-Friends,

I’ve spent lots of hours during the last months to collect, check and resample data. Just before Christmas I’m going to give you the result – several new DTMs – as a present:









Enjoy them, Sonny.

The value of elevation gain in Route Planer is much too high. After saving the planned track the new value looks better. Approximatly -20% than in Route Planer.
Minion - may i ask you to fix this because i use Route Planer in the field often to get quick information to decide to go right or left without saving the track.
Thank you.
Its not fixed in v3.34

Troubles & Questions / Re: Filednotes (drafts) have no time anymore
« on: October 29, 2018, 14:22:51 »

when you log something offline there is a checkbox called "Nur Log-Datum" ("Only Log Date" I guess in englisch) underneath the editable log date and log time.

When this checkbox is checked only the log date with a constant log time is stored in the corresponding fieldnote. Unfortunately this checkbox is hidden by the keyboard so you can not see the current state of that checkbox immediately.

Maybe you checked the checkbox by chance somewhere in the past. When unchecking it the actual time of the fieldnote should be stored again and you are able to log the founds in the correct order per day (earliest first, 07:00 am for example, latest last, 08:00 pm for example). does not store the time of a found anyway so you have to be sure, you log the founds per day in the right order, to get a correct log-id at representing the correct found order of that day.
