Will Locus Basic have ads as former free version?

I can´t get GH to work. I have installed AddonGraphHopper_16_0.7_release.apk and GH data via Locus action button. When I start the Addon, it just shows me the content of the data directory (here: germany.osm). I can click on it, but I can´t select it in any way.

In Locus I can select GH as offline service, but there are no routing profiles offered to me (if I click on the little symbol with the three lines on the right site) as in GH online or BRouter.
These routing profiles are missing in the route planner, too.

If I select a crossing on the map and use it at navigation destination from the flyout, I get the error popup: Graphhopper cannot load notes.

I don´t know if it´s important, but I store all my maps on external SD. GH data are correctly copied to the external directory defined in settings.

Any hint please what to do?

Why not use Locus?

You can use an android emulator like Memu or boot into Phoenix OS. Both come with Playstore.
I switched from Memu to Phoenix, because native Android under X86 is much faster than emulated.

You can install Phoenix like just another Windows app, no hassle with partitions as with Linux.

john_percy: Thanks for this! Disabling all 3 tracks related items in road style gives a nice clean look. This one does the job! Will you implement this in official version?

Themes - Vector maps / Theme for onroad motorcycle riding

Coming from Osmand+ the first issue for me is to find a theme for onroad motorcycling only. Reasons for switching to locus: I would like to have the database structure and the poi handling with personalized icons. Also strict mode is a thing I would like when navigating a track.

Locus themes I have testet show me to much details - even when getting in overview. Let me show you what I mean.

First: Osmand showing 2km scale in the Eifel, Germany. Preferred motorcycling area with lots of small winding roads. Osmand shows them all - and does not display all the forest and resident roads, that are closed for public.


Second: Locus with road theme and lomaps. I have to go to level 3 km, but have smaller overview. Notice the secondary roads in the small villages - they are of complete desinterest. Zooming in gives more roads mentioned above which are closed to public.


Third: Locus with Voluntary UK theme. Same thing with need to go to 3 km scale but having less overview (left). Going to 2 km scale Voluntary UK theme gets useless, showing almost closed roads:


Is there any theme or possibility to modify an existing theme to show only roads that a suitable for motorized traffic? I really don´t need roads to be shown that I am not allowed to ride. And showing this roads makes the overview just confusing.

Thanks for any hint.
