FWIW with LM4 on Android 8, I long+tap on 1st GPX to import, then the whole list has checkboxes on right side where I can select any/ all for import.

Slightly off-topic sorry, but is separate BRouter app needed any more if all routing is performed with LM4Gold? Can I safely uninstall BRouter?

I was about to delete my post, but you were too quick
also I guess - to force a manual update/ download from BRouter server if LM is not working correctly

@tapio - can you please explain the underlying purpose of your script, now that LM has BRouter built-in with behind-the-scenes handling of .RD5 files, the average user (like me) no longer needs to be aware of their existence? Note to myself - .RD5 files are stored in Locus/router/segments4 directory.

Cursors / Icons / Voices / Re: [CURSORS] Circle cursors

It took me a little while to remember how to use custom cursors, so I thought I'd write this:
copy Karl's ZIP file (the file name doesn't matter) to Locus/icons/cursors directory, then from LM settings > Controlling > Map screen > Map cursors > select the new ZIP file > enjoy!

OK, then I can't explain why the ZIP theme wasn't working. Maybe the log will help.

@menion - did anything else in 4.5.6.1_1055 change related to my reported issue (can't' select theme, green error msg)? Because I can't reproduce the issue now ;-( One thing I do still see, which may be related, is with Map Manager > select map > Map Manager > previous map details are still displayed instead of the selected map.

to reproduce: lets say I have 3 vector maps for same region: Locus, OAM4, OAM5, with OAM4 currently selected.
  • Map Manager > select Locus > return to main screen with Locus map
  • Map Manager > observe OAM4 details are still displayed?
  • Locus dot-dot-dot > Details > select Locus > return to main screen with Locus map
  • Map Manager > observe Locus details are now displayed
When opening Map Manager, shouldn't the details for the currently selected map be displayed? Is it possible I previously experienced situation where Locus tries to use theme of non-existent map - green message "No map with theme is active"?

If you will be interested, I may create a special version with little more logs printed ...
Menion - always happy to help - but you have better things to enjoy on xmas day - whenever you get around to it. My Android11 tablet is purely for testing so not important to me. My main LM4 device stays solidly with Android8 for now.

Does it show the v5 maps info?
@tapio - yes - shown in my previous screen capture. Why am I posting on xmas day?

Troubles & Questions / is track interval time 00:00 valid?
« on: December 24, 2021, 03:17:51 »
In my latest recorded track (attached) the statistics showed Best Interval 0h:00m:00s. Is this a bug or am I misinterpreting? There was nothing unusual to tell you about the track; I stopped a few times. Not terribly useful info.

A. Heard, strange, everything works fine here now. Mapsforge V5? Maybe try another map from
@tapio - thanks - I now have the OAM v4 & OAM v5 maps for my region, and the results are quite interesting/ useful?

4.5.5.3: I have a single ZIP theme. I select the v4 map. I tap the Map Themes button and the list of themes is correctly displayed - internal General theme + single external theme. I then select the v5 map, tap the Map Themes button. The green message is not displayed, instead a blank side panel appears (note I am testing with a tablet in landscape mode).

@menion - useful info? Shall I create a log file?

4.5.6: tap Map Manager > select the v5 map > return to main screen. But I *think* the v5 map isn't selected/ tap has been silently ignored, because when I next tap Map Manager: v4 map is still selected.

All my testing is on an Android v11 tablet, but on the Android v8 phone the v5 map is working fine. I copied v5 .db & .map files to tablet 2nd time in case slightly corrupt, but same behavior as already described.

@Andrew: Menion has extended the logging significantly. Long tap on the low left Hamburger menu, tap the logging option and switch on the first 3 of them.
@michaelbechtold - thanks - very impressive range of diagnostics - merry Christmas to you

error "No map with themes is active" has nothing to do with themes. It simply try to tell you, that no vector map is currently selected!
@menion - well that's very strange - wasn't a problem with 4.5.5.1; only since 4.5.5.2. I am just using ordinary OpenAndroMap vector map (28.11.2021) to test themes. I don't have any raster maps installed. Nothing has changed. What/ how to test next?

Are the xml files on top level inside the zip?
@tapio - thanks for asking - no, the XML file was "down" 1 extra level for each of those theme ZIP files (same format as original theme author); the top level inside each ZIP was just the _theme or <theme name> directory (there has been no detail from @menion on exactly what structure is required here)

So I extracted the files from 1 theme ZIP, removed the top level directory, so XML is @ top level, created a new ZIP, moved to LM4 _theme directory; but with 4.5.5.2_1054 still this green error message "No map with themes is active". I've attached the file for @menion to test (from Bernard @ www.maiwolf.de).

PS. same issue with 4.5.5.3 RC_1054
