Hi Jan,
  hmm don't exactly understand what you want. You want download map from internet and save them as vector OSM map? This is not possible. Locus works only with raster maps

I use navit. Navit works with binairy files made from osm files. Everyone speaks about osm, but regarding saving as osm then it becomes quiet. Locus loads from OSM. So I should say it must be possible to save the same format, or convert to it. But as I understand Locus reads vector files and handle this as non-vector.

I want to have the possibility to download maps from countrys or regions and save as osm.

MBAC read all formats, but as far as I understand saves not as OSM file.

that's not correct. OSM are vector, right, but are preprepared into raster images. Generating raster images for every request will be very server un-efficient. So I'm downloading already created raster images. And these images are stored into SQLite database. So there is no possibility to download and save OSM vector data. I plan to add some support for vector data but with so much work to do before, this will be done no soon then in summer :)

I understand.

I must look an other way to the problem.

When Locus can serve Navit with his off-line maps and the requested route in Locus, that will be fine.
The last official release of Navit is not handled by Locus, but supports TTS in dutch. Later versions of Navit are handled by Locus, but does not support my dutch TTS.

Also, I wait for:
fully off-line car navigation
dutch spoken instructions
locus serves this program with maps wich i make with MBAC and the begin and end of the trip

Google maps is 95% off-line and still Beta. It is free, but will it stay free.

I am willing to pay once, for the solution.

Hmm so I pretend you're on wrong address, because

- I'll never (on 99%) do voice navigation into Locus. There exist so much perfect navigation application, so why another?
- using maps created by Mobac? It's already possible

Yes google maps are free thanks to enormous source of power and other incomes that google have. I, as single developer, don't have possibility to do whole software for free without income.

There are not so much program's with free maps and real off-line navigation.

It is not possible to create maps for navit with mbac, because navit works with .osm.

Some releases of Navit can be controlled by Locus. I need to test if the Locus sends the map data to Navit, or Navit uses it's own map.

Locus stays an option for me, but I wait until Navit can be directed from Locus and supports SVOX TTS as well.
