I created new DTMs of Germany and Luxembourg
Download: https://sonny.4lima.de

For Germany I used new LiDAR source data of Hessen and Bayern. And the quality of Baden-Württemberg, Saarland, Niedersachsen, Bremen, Schleswig-Holstein, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern got significantly improved, especially in wooden areas.
For Luxembourg I used finer LiDAR source data.

Have a good time!

Nice one thanks Michael, I hadn't spotted that.  I gave it a test and it works to a point but when I was off-route and tried to remove a waypoint, it wouldn't let me.  I've tried to replicate this and it won't happen again, so seems fine now but it might have a gremlin or two that needs checking. 

When testing again I was able to switch between manual and auto which was quite useful and made for fast plotting.  I plotted the route I walked today though and it has a few categories that are way off and need looked at. 

The planner tells me the following stats:

Planner Statistics

Total distance
11.11 km - pretty much spot on, give or take inaccuracies in my plotting compared to track

Total time
1:59 h - inaccurate

Elevation loss
-581 m - inaccurate

Elevation gain
467 m - inaccurate

Distance (downhill)
3.85 km - inaccurate

Distance (uphill)
3.19 km  - inaccurate


Track Statistics from today hiking the same route:

Total distance
11.45 km

Total time
3:34:21 track time (movement) and 4:42:34 (total track time) - obviously taking into account stoppages which you can't factor in, so this is fine.  I did walk in winter conditions but had microspikes and although the snow was frozen, there wasn't too much on the ground for this time of year, so that shouldn't be a big factor.  1hr 59 on the planner is way off.

Elevation loss
-764 m (183 m difference)

Elevation gain
754 m (287 m difference)

Distance (downhill)
5.39 km (1.54 km difference)

Distance (uphill)
5.26 km (2.07 km difference)

Are you able to fix the planner to make it more accurate and is your timing based on Naismith's rule?

When I plot the same route using a different website map I get the following, which is a much better reflection of my track, minus a slight detour I had to take to cross a burn in spate:

Length: 6.91 miles  11.1 km
Ascent: +790m  -789m
Naismith: 3h 33m

Cheers,

Chris

Remember just a few months ago when I complained about the silly and utterly useless super high contrast copyright button and risks for burnin?

You cannot view this attachment.
It now found its way to my screen permanently and gets brighter every day. Thank you, Locus BURNIN. If I weren't up for a new phone anyway, I'd be quite pissed off now.

I know I am a mega power user with 5+x hours locus screen on time at full brightness each day, but I can almost guarantee that you will destroy more displays pretty soon unless you finally do something about it.

In "Partial auto hide" mode my bottom panel does not hide at all, but its icons are removed. I see, it's WIP.

And in full autohide most buttons stay where they are, not beautiful.

to check VDOP value and why it does not refresh, I'll need from you recorded NMEA messages created in the time, the problem was visible. It may be done by enabling NMEA recorded in the Locus Map > settings > GPS & sensors > NMEA recording. Thanks.

Hello
Attach NMEA message

Hi, I would normally plot a route for a walk using another website, then import the route to follow and record as a track.  I decided to give your one a go but as I often climb subsiduary peaks off the main routes, when I tried to plot one of these, I got the following error:

You cannot view this attachment.

Are you able to fix this so that I can plot away from a path on your map?  Unfortunately, your planner is no use to me if I can't stray from any paths.

Also, are there plans to make any Ordnance Survey (or other) maps you have bought available to view on the planner, or are they only going to be visible on my phone?

Many thanks,

Chris

I'm not sure if Locus is able to read or unzip .zip-Files.
But I can tell you a useful tip to bulk unzip files on a PC: I'm using software "WinRAR", mark all files I want to unzip, right mouse click and select "Extract Here" from the menu. Now all files are unzipped into the same directory
