Troubles & Questions / Can't select theme
October 19, 2021, 01:45:26
New install of 4.4.1 on a Hammerhead Karoo 2.   I've downloaded maps & themes from openandromaps.  The maps work fine, but I can't select the theme?  I installed them in Locus/mapsVector/_themes
If I select Map-screen content I can select a map, but it doesn't show the themes.  I'm using 3.54 on my phone and Map-screen content shows 'Map themes'
Troubles & Questions / APK locus pro
October 18, 2021, 01:55:13
I have Locus Map Pro on my phones and I'd like to install it on a hammerhead karoo 2.   Where can I find the APK for this?    Do I need to pay another subscription fee?
Thanks for a great app.  I've tried many the Karoo app, and many others, & Locus is the best.
Is there a way to show only my OSM notes, or only the ones that have not been uploaded?   Either on the map, or in a folder  like the waypoints would be fine.   
Maps / lomaps tags included
June 28, 2020, 02:59:02
Is there a list of keys included in lomaps?   I've been told that there is a limitation in mapsforge so each way can include only 15 tags (including relations), so openandromaps has done some trimming.   They've trimmed out some tags that I want so I'm working on my own .map.   But if lomaps has what I want it would be well worth my time to purchase these.   Is there a list somewhere of what keys are included?   Some of the keys that I'm looking for, that OAM does not include are:
   <rule e="way" k="surface" v="smooth_paved">
<line stroke="#AAAAAA" stroke-width="0.9" stroke-dasharray="2,2" stroke-linecap="butt" />

Then have a rule for a surface which is anything else but smooth_paved?

something like v=~"smooth_paved"

Themes - Vector maps / custom map and theme
June 20, 2020, 22:56:58
I starting to create my own custom mapsforge map and theme.   I can load the theme and use it with an openandromap map, or I can load the homebuilt map and some standard themes show up on the menu, but not mine.   
Any ideas why the theme  won't show up with the new map?

Edit: it works in Cruiser, but not in Locus (up to date pro version)
Edit: It looks like a V3 vs V4 issue, maybe my .map is V3.   Not sure why, I have the latest mapsforge jar file.
I'd like to export my tracks as I create them to a shared network folder.   I have ASUS File Manager app installed and it can access the shared folder.   I've tried 2 ways to export to the network folder
1) Using the Data Export from the track detail.  The net folder does not show up.
2) Using Share from the track detail, the File Manager app doesn't show up.

How can I do this so I don't have to execute the extra steps of saving the file on the device, then using the File Manager to move or copy it?
Themes - Vector maps / desktop app
August 28, 2019, 04:04:54
Is there a linux desktop program that can use Locus themes and openandromaps maps?    I'd like to use the same map and theme on my desktop to do some development on a theme.  I found cruiser, but it doesn't work with some locus themes.   The developer said: "Locus seems to use a modified Mapsforge and not being much compatible with the rest community."
Troubles & Questions / navigation turns
December 31, 2018, 22:05:10
When navigating, using either brouter or graphhopper, there are too many turns shown in the 'streetname/road number indicator'.    There are turns shown where there is only a bend in the road, & no possibility to go the wrong way.    I have frequency of commands set to low.   I think it is better than it was when it was set to medium, but still confusing to have unnecessary  turns shown.
I have frequency of alerts in Guidance set to Low also.  Is there another setting that I've missed?   
What is the easiest way to text msg my location using locus with another user using locus?    Every way I've found so far is pretty cumbersome.
