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.

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
My Vote: Stop waste time to optimize import of .img files ;).

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/...
