Quote from: Saturo on January 26, 2023, 21:40:56I use osmand for everything exept geocaching.
If osmand would support this too, I wouldn't use locus anymore.

Osmland seems to support cached maps:
Menu -> Download maps -> Local,
The first thing you can see is Standard maps( vector)
Keep scrolling down and you will see: Online and cached tile maps
Sorry, this forum doesn't seem to be able to post pictures?

Of course, its cache map is actually not fully understood by me.
I still use Locus, but Osmand has some advantages that I like, for example, global ocean depth.

Thanks.

Quote from: ThomasD. on January 26, 2023, 18:11:52I started Android navigation on my motorcycle with Osmand, but switched to Locus Map after 1 year. Reason was the Locus database and the better route planner. Never used Osmand again.
The only situation where I don´t use Locus is car navigation with simple A-B routing. There I use Magic Earth.

May I know which version of Locus you are currently using? LM3 or 4 ?
Thanks.

For geocaching support, there is only one choice.

I wanted to have only one app for all outdoor activities and not different ones and every time I have to think how to do it in this app.
Here was only Locus Map that covered everything. and after 6 years I am of the opinion that there is no better in this area.
For car navigation use Google Maps, in this area is simply the better choice.
When I go hiking or .... I choose a parking place in Locus Map and then select Google Maps for navigation.

Zu eurer Info,

das Locus-Team antwortete mir, dass das untere Menü in der nächsten Version so aussehen wird, wie im Retourendetail. Dort ist keine Wetter-Wolke :)
Man plant weiter ein anpassbares Menü, aber mit nachgeordneter Priorität.

Grüße, Jo

In addition to Locus and OsmAnd, is there an more excellent app? ;D
Can we discuss this issue? ;D  ;D

Ďakujem za rady. Fungovalo mi.

Tak to by veru bol dobrý nápad definovať štýl podľa atribútu.
To by malo využitie nielen geologických ale aj lesníckych mapách. Ako napríklad táto WMS mapa v offline SHP formáte:
https://gis.nlcsk.org/arcgis/services/Inspire/LesneTypy/MapServer/WMSServer?request=GetCapabilities&service=WMS

Geologická mapa je jednofarebná (tak mi to zobrazuje aj v aplikácii QGIS), ale možno by sa geologickému ústavu oplatilo vytvoriť aj viacfarebné, ak by ste pridali štýl podľa atribútu.

Pokiaľ by ste mali takúto aktualizáciu, tak potom by som kontaktoval aj lesnícku a geologickú inštitúciu, že takto majú možnosť rozšíriť svoje mapy. Možno by využili tieto možnosti.
