Themes - Vector maps / Re: Theme developing question

On my maps marked trails don't have tags "highway", thats why they won't be visible with conditions that you have included into your style.

I add artificial tag route=hiking|foot|bicycle|mtb|ski|sled|piste|ferry (maybe more, values are taken from relation type).

Edit: I add new ways for marked trails to OSM data, there should be an original way with tag highway= at the same place.

Es sieht nicht gut aus, aber immer noch kann man mehrere Wanderwege zu sehen (es ist meine Karte mit Locus Thema).

Thema können Muster, Offset von Muster und Transparenz verwenden, um bessere Sicht auf überlappenden Linien zu bekommen. Meiner Meinung nach bekommt man die besten Ergebnisse bei der Erstellung parallelen Linien, aber wahrscheinlich ist es in Locus Themen nicht möglich. Beispiel unten für Garmin-Geräte.

Actually Garmin uses skins (TYP files) and themes too. There is no one defined view of Garmin map. I think that as kind of standard could be used default themes for City Navigator maps, see pictures below in this article:

I can't access your link (banned site!)
I'm afraid something wrong is on your side. UMP is a free social project for creating maps of Poland, mostly for Garmin devices but you can get a map for Locus too ( ). This project is older than OSM and for years was a better source of mapping data of Poland.

Sorry for off-topic, but for me ban for UMP sounds like ban for OSM, I can't imagine any reason for it.

Your guess is right, I put route name into tag "ref" on map that I post at

Wo ist Version 0.4 entwickelt? Auf mapsforge Website es gibt Code für 0.3.1. Ich kann nicht den Quellcode von 0.4 finden.

Thanks, I know these resources.

Have you noticed, that file tag-mappings-locus.xml is slightly damaged? It needs a correction to work and even then I have seen some unexplained problems with missing paths. Maybe you could publish an updated version?

Thanks for your infos, I was able to run my hiking trails as an overlay.

I have created a touristic map of Poland with trails presented in proper colors. This is the way we used to see trails on Polish maps. My map is here:

While compiling a map is relatively easy, making a good map is not a trivial task. I miss many details about work of Mapsforge plugin, my tag-mapping.xml is very coarse and I haven't tried to create any own style for maps yet. That's why I would prefer to use good maps form source like openandromaps and only add missing tracks with colors.

is this project still alive? Following the link form first post I have downloaded tag-mapping-locus.xml, but this file doesn't look like finished reference.

I have created a map of Poland with hiking trails, but mapsforge tools are very new to me and I have many doubts about configurations contained in tag-mapping.xml. My other attempt was to create an overlay with hiking trails, which could work with good maps from, but I can't see how could I display both maps at once in Locus.
