hello there,

is there somehow a possibility to use purchased maps from the austrian Alpenverein (https://www.alpenverein.at/shop/shop/artikel.php?h_no=90020) with locus?

thank you for your help
greets peter

Hello Peter,
as I see, these maps are copy-protected and in some private format. So there is almost no chance it will work in the Locus Map because there is currently no support for any copy-protected map system, sorry.

Hi menion,

thx for the quick answer. I love locus. It's my companion on nearly all my outdoor activities.

Since the maps of Alpenverein are by far the best topographical maps in austria its really a pity that i can not use them in my beloved locus...

Hi,
I'm sorry we already contacted the Alpenverain but without any response.  OK50 could be theoretically added as paid maps - it depends on the pricing of BEV. Anyway, please vote for this idea https://help.locusmap.eu/topic/22836-is-it-possible-to-usebuy-the-austrian-map-ok50-from-bev
BTW: are OK50 maps better than KOMPASS maps?
Thanks, Petr
