How to recreate the problem:
- turn off all internet connections (both GPRS and WiFi).
- select an offline map
- create a track. Two points is sufficient. Tap the "Compute route" button (3rd button from left on the track creation menu)
- Locus then complains: "Problem with internet connection"

If I enable internet connection, the "Compute route" completes.
Requirering internet connection when using offline maps can't be correct?

:) I think decscription is written in looong text below. (on screen where you choose route compute type). Downloaded maps are only pictures. There is no chance to compute route on it ...

Ok, I understand. I must admit I haven't read that text carefully enough. Anyway, I thought an online map and the same map downloaded and used offline were exactly the same thing. Ok, so it isn't.

yes it is. They are same. It do not change fact, that both are only raster images. Because of that, maps are so big. Because of that, you cannot compute route on them!
