Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.3.+ ( 28. 7. 2021 )
« on: July 30, 2021, 12:58:53 »
You are missing hiking swiss topo maps in the list? Please check the "Available maps" option in the top toolbar of map manager. May you have disabled these maps some time ago?
Offline hiking swisstopo maps in the Store were in the app for a few years already. The difference is they were quite pricey. Now, they are for free > nice gesture from the Swiss...

Hmm, I still do not see any problem, no matter what I do on my own device. What device/Android version are you using? May you please also try to toggle
- app settings > Controlling > Display > Full screen
- app settings > Controlling > Display > unlock the screen

Does any of these two settings have any effect?

Issue detected, bug-fix version comes today, sorry for this.

@Andrew Heard
yes, I know. This is what cause the troubles with auto-hide before. I have to correctly set the visibility of the bottom panel, so if you make content visible, the bottom panel has to be visible even if is empty. We may experiment with it later, but for now, this should be a safe solution.

Scaling of panels: I wrote before that this feature is not (and won't be for now) supported in LM4. I've not yet removed this "support" from the side panel, but sorry > it will come. Panels are a little bit bigger then in LM Pro, so this scaling should not be necessary.

I'm not sure from your description what exactly is the problem. But it may be similar to what ADiet wrote. So give a try next version, thanks.

Locus Map / Re: [APP] - version 4.1.+ ( 4. 5. 2021 )

It is about the editing of already saved, usually recorded, or imported routes, that do not have any navigation commands or any old plan stored inside. In this case, such track loaded into route planner will have a single shaping point placed in the middle.
The reason for this is mainly in the case of rounded routes, where simple drag or adding a new via-point caused recompute of the whole route.

Locus Map (4+) / Re: Locus Map 4, discussion (pre-release)
« on: March 30, 2021, 07:28:18 »
Yes, we are finally official  :-*

I'll re-organize a few categories on the forum and the new topic for LM4 is here: .

Well, what to say ... is Thanks enough? Maybe not, but it is probably not important. I believe, you here are mostly satisfied with the changes we did last in almost two years. Weather at least in central Europe starting to be really nice so I wish you mainly: stay healthy (families as well) and enjoy at least a little hike & bike adventures. It is something that connects us right?  ;)

I have been using your app with great pleasure for several years and for a ridiculous price !

The subscription you are asking to pay, for me, is just a thank you for all these years and for those that come, thanks to the result of your wonderful work.

I created new DTM of the whole of Germany. Not each federal state is offering OpenData elevation data yet. Please open the image “_Sources.png” in the download package to check the type of Sourcedata for each region.

Furthermore I created a new DTM of Slovakia, please check:

Maps / Re: Digital Swisstopo maps free of charge from 1 March 2021
« on: March 09, 2021, 21:11:00 »
The map is downloaded directly from the Swisstopo map server and you get the latest version of map.
There was the wrong version name in the store (already renamed)

Themes - Vector maps / [Theme] OpenMaps (v3 and v4 maps)
« on: March 07, 2021, 16:40:08 »


Simple modified theme.
Source here:

The resources are the same, but in the process of modification, smartphones with different DPI were used.

for V3 - OpenMaps LE.xml   (dpi=240.. 320)
for V4 - OpenMaps Mapsforge.xml (dpi=480 )

therefore there is a difference in line thickness, font sizes, overall readability, etc.

The legend is here:


The menu also turned out different for V3 and V4
For example, in V3 (OpenMaps LE.xml) , Mary's path is removed, and instead of it - car parking.

The following objects, specific for both OAM and LM, were added:
cutline, grassland, barrier | natural = ditch | gully, safety_rope | ladder | rungs, man_made = adit | adit_disused, minor_line, type = communication ...
Сhanged cliff | earth_bank, embankmen  and many, many other little things that you can no longer remember...

This theme was with me on many trips (more than 2,000 km in the mountains), over the years, during which it was corrected, as needed. Therefore, I had to make it under V4 too ...(Thanks Felipe! Be happy, man, and I started your seed.)

No further plans to improve it, just share it with you :)

I created a new Version of Swiss DTMs, with great improvements in large parts of the country:

They are based on new high-quality OpenData sources of Swisstopo.

By the way: I created a Twitter account to post news and answer questions. If you want me to follow:

yes, we'll offer these maps also for free. At this moment are Swisstopo maps charged in the store. We'll change these items in the store to be free from 1.3.2021 and we'll also prepare the new version of Locus app (during March/April) that should offer other Swisstopo maps - eq. satellite map.
Thanks, Petr

Maps / Re: LiDAR- Digital Terrain Models (DTM) of European countries
« on: December 12, 2019, 12:39:59 »
After lots of hours of work, finally the latest version of DTMs of Spain are ready for Download:

I therefor used the latest available source-files of the Spanish survey Institute. Most improvements are in regions which lack of LIDAR source data in the previous DTMs: Andalusia and the Balearic Islands.
Now the whole territory of Spain is covered by high quality LIDAR data.

Hallo Roland
ich hab verschiedene Einstellungen und Routingprofile getestet, leider erhalte ich immer das von dir beschriebene Ergebnis sobald ich den Cache #9 als Zwischenziel angebe.
Wenn ich aber kurz vor oder nach dem Cache  mein Zwischenziel mit der + Taste hinzufüge passt die Wegführung.
Am Cache selbst kann es auch nicht liegen ich hab einen Wegpunkt mit den Koordinaten des Caches erstellt aber auch da zeigt sich der Fehler.

Tiramisù as OpenTopoMap


for the topography, and exploration on the maps

only for V4 maps!

For V3 (lomaps and other)  TOTM 1.9.2 - >

in the future it will be slightly improved:
  • all water except springs (rivers, streams, lakes, canals, etc.)
  • all railway and tram
  • all labels
  • setting priorities
  • streets, driveways and younger roads in the direction of greater elegance (at the moment - too thick)
on my smartphone 282 ppi, 320 dpi

It also works well on Oruxmap, Cruiser, and most likely in other mapsforge-compatible programs
(tested in Oruxmaps 7.4.22, Cruiser 1.7)


Map: ESRI satellite;  Overlay 85%: OAM Ural ML;  Layer "Terrain" in the theme is OFF


Waiting for comments and constructive criticism.

To the Locus and OpenAndroMaps community,

I finally adapted also my "desert" theme and created a new "desertV4" theme, which can be used with the new multi-language mapsforge V4 OpenAndroMaps. It is compatible only with these new maps!
Please take the theme as a draft. I am happy for any comments, suggestions and there will be constant improvements.
