hmm I still don't see log anyway to map ... I see it correctly



may you please check if you have it really in

.. /Locus/mapsVector/myFile.img or any subdirectory like .. /Locus/mapsVector/imgMaps/myFile.img

also please check if file has correct size on your device, if there is not any problem during a transfer

EDIT: Jusc I had same problem. Don't know why, but map is center on location as you see. Anyway on different coordinates exists. Check my screenshot ;)

By the way, with my Note 2 the images are very very poor. @menion
I don't know why but even my picture created on PC looks terrible on phone.

Ah, no, the images here in this forum. On PC no problem, but with phone they have poor quality.

Right! I'm not happy with the results of Garmin map  :'( This is a free map for Finland, one eager beaver converted the survey map into .IMG format.
Mostly I am missing the shading of different landscape (fields, forests, open cliffs, etc), buildings(!), major roads (now I have two thin lines for opposite lanes), etc.
I do not have original Garmin maps, so I do not know how good your rendering is on them. But this Finnish maps looks much better even on a low performance Dakota 20 than on Locus.

So..., there seems to be a lot to do, so make sure that your efforts are not wasted on a non-publishable feature.

I don't want to sound so negative :), for me Locus is very nearly perfect ;D, I just haven't found a good map for all purposes.

Are you looking for a Finland map? I´m not sure if I understand correctly.
Nope, I have a this map on my Dakota. So I was excited to test it on Locus anmd was deeply disappointed :(
Just don't know if I miss a lot if I don't have a Garmin Dakota: Is this garmin format Finland map significantly better than the Finland vector map from Locusstore or openandromaps?
The "open" maps are almost worthless in the woods (IMHO).
I took two screenshots and placed them side-by-side, judge yourself, which renders the same map better, Locus or Dakota. (Note that the screenshots are 800*480 (Locus) vs. 240*160 (Dakota)).

Screenshots (one image) are at https://www.dropbox.com/s/zvc8diqu5web7cl/garmin_img.jpg
The map can be found at http://eivoittoa.fi/mtk/2013-02-17/mtk_suomi20.img

Here you are:

thx
Hm. Not really a big difference - both maps are strange ;)
   and the vector:

So it's better to use *.img files with garmin.devices

Yes they are in Locus/mapsVector/. I moved 3 files from the subdirectory direct to Locus/mapsVector/ but still I don't see them. And yes tehy have exact same size.

Just a comment: ivo, are you using "Locus/maps/Vector/" or " Locus/mapsVector/" ? The first one is correct.

I was using mapsvector, not maps. Will try.
Today I noticed something with dashboard. I tried the preset white simple. When I open locus the white fields are immediately there but the numbers take ages. When I lock my screen and unlock the scree again, the numbers are immediately there. Maybe that helps to find the error.

@stebu,

you can try the online map of kapsi.fi. I think this map is integrated in Locus:

stebu wait, IMG maps really have to be in the same directory as vector maps from MapsForge so really in Locus/mapsVector/...
