Elevate Theme for LoMaps / Best Theme for Hiking?
« on: April 06, 2021, 09:28:41 »
Hello,

I am looking for the "best" hiking theme for the Lomaps.
The last time I went to the Alps I used OAM with the Elevate Theme and really liked it. For me it is important to see the type/difficulty of the ways (blue/red/black dotted/dashed etc) .

Is it possible to use the Elevate Theme together with the LoMaps? How?
I installed it from the website (auto installer) and see the folder in the locus theme folder but cannot activate it while using a LoMap.

I tried HiLo as well but I don't like the colors at all. Contrast is low so it is hard to read in the map in some occasions.


Thanks for your help

You need to download Elevate LE for Lomaps. It is further down the same download page.

I saw the LE version on the website but it is said that it is not maintened any longer.
According to the website LE is for V3 maps and for my understanding the latest LoMaps are V4?

Try it. I think you'll find it's what you need. I don't think Lomaps have migrated to v4 yet.

You are right. It works.
I was confused because of the description on the website and also because I thought LoMaps are version 4
