Sorry about that, turned it on to try and then didn't think to turn it off. I didn't think it would be quite that sensitive, sorry if I caused any trouble. I figured I could write most of the stuff myself, but I don't really know any JavaScript, so the Google Maps integration would take some learning on my part, so I was hoping I could basically just download and run it ;)

Is the server for this in any way open source ? It sucks that the minimum refresh is one minute, so you pretty much can't follow someone in real time, but of course I understand that the owner of doesn't want all his bandwidth eaten up, so I was wondering if I could just run my own server instead.

Maps / Locus Maps in Google Earth ?
« on: August 09, 2013, 13:40:59 »

this might be a weird question, but I figured if anyone knew, it would be you awesome guys. I've been a long time happy Locus Pro user, and couldn't be more happy with this fantastic app. I have one issue though: as amazing as Locus is, it's restricted to running on my phone, which compared to my desktop PC is really tiny. When I plan a hike or a tour, I would prefer to plan it on Google Earth, and export it to Locus when I'm done, simply because the huge screen and the mouse make for a nicer planning experience. This itself already works fine - I export my track or route as .kml (or .kmz ? I forget), and import it in Locus.

My question is this: in Locus, I have access to fantastic maps with topographic height reliefs, even more so with the map addon. But with Google Earth, I only have the comparatively crappy Google maps. I know there is a feature to use other maps as overlays in Google Earth somehow, but I don't quite know how, or how I would find out where the Locus maps come from exactly. Any of you know if there is like a text file with links or something in Locus where I could easily copy map providers out of to use with Google Earth to plan my trips ?

For what it's worth, I'm in Europe, and the only help I could find on Google was for map data from the USGS, covering only the Americas.

Hope it's OK I asked this here.

Hah, while making screenshots, I accidentally solved the issue: bad map overlay settings (I guess these only update when you restart Locus, I played with them earlier, but they didn't seem to do anything, so I forgot all about them). My bad for wasting your time, everything works as intended now! Thank you anyways!

I have cleared map cache, it didn't help. I do not know how to display what you need, but if I use the GPS status thing, i get lat 50.46496 long 6.4658. It has now stopped loading tiles completely, even at lower zoom levels. If I zoom in all the way and then back step by step, it displays a grey grid (like it does when you are just loading) for 9 steps, and then at the 10th 'zoomout', which shows as 300m, it changes from gray grid to all black.

Is there a way to look at maybe a text file with the map providers ? Maybe I could compare my tablets settings, which still work fine, with the ones I have here.

I guess I did, I didn't remember that. I just installed the same on my phone, but a lot of the zoom levels for Google maps are black. Ideas ? I really like the Google map look the best :|

Where did it go ? I still have it on my tablet, but when I just bought Pro and installed it on my new phone, no Google maps was to be found.
