Ordnance Survey British National Grid
« on: July 13, 2015, 11:34:06 »
I am late to Android GPS.  I have used a Garmin eTrex Legend for many years.  It permits the display of Ordnance Survey British National Grid coordinates.  Is it possible to change the map datum similarly in Locus Maps?

I don't think it is, but it is possible to move to an OS map reference.
Settings > Search > Move to... > Co-ordinates
Then choose OSGB 1936 (British National Grid) from the pull down menu and enter your map reference and press Set.

John
I thank you for your reply.  I have found it disconcerting in both Locus and OruxMaps there seems to be the facility to change to British National Grid - Main Menu>Settings>Language & Units>COORDINATES>Coordinates type in Locus - but the display remains in Longitude/Latitude.  I discovered quite by chance yesterday, however, the tab to the right of the menu at the top of the screen, showing a default 'Locus Pro' is interactive.  Here, is 'Coordinates'.  Tapping that displays British National Grid.

Hi,

yes, this is correct solution. Also when you now tap on points etc. you should see coordinates in this format.
