not been on Locus in a while. where did Google maps go?
install locus map tweak
and before you look, Locus Map Tweak is no longer available from Google Play. A search will find several other sources for the "side load" APK. I think I used this one: https://locus-map-tweak.en.aptoide.com/.
hmm..so would my map tweak have expired or something? Because it was there before..
did that map tweak some time ago, been years, on this device
I'm not sure if it was automatically removed in a previous update or not but I remember having to reload it.
No worries. It's very simple and you shouldn't be bothered for a while after.
When talking about additional online map sources for locus - there is a project called AnyGIS. Indeed a lot of eurasian and russian stuff, but also global and sat maps.
Locus won't stay open on android and I went through all of the software settings looking for a slider but can't figure it out. Any help? The app doesn't keep the screen on like all of my other GPS apps do.
Settings, controlling, display
Also, you might want to set it to run as a service.
Settings, miscellaneous, run locus map as a service
check locus settings....
settings >>> controlling >>> display >>> always on
if the Android lock screen interferes...
check android settings.:
settings >>> security >>> device administrators >>> tick locus box
the Android security settings change with each major Android version, this is how mine is accessed in 6.0
Thanks to both! I missed the display setting for always on. I did enable as a service to be safe too.
Gday all, to save me reading all 186 pages of this thread, can locus be set to show direction of travel ie travel to top of map and a rt turn looks like a right turn etc
Can añy one decephier the "Chinese ' instructions
Bottom of screen, second icon. Toggles between direction of travel and North up.
I keep map rotation on. I can't stand how when I come to a stop the map starts spinning around at times.
Is there a fix for that other than turn it off, then back on when moving?
I prefer to always have the north on top, but there are settings to choose between compass and gps for direction of travel low speed/high speed. That's in "gps and sensor" parameters.
I'm guessing this is what you mean. I don't remember the default setting but maybe I'll try it on auto. I thought I had it on auto a while back and didn't like it. Memory.... :-(.
Yes, don't look at the map. ;-) opps,
yes that's the one i had in mind! Depends if your device has a magnetic compass of course..
I've been reading through all the pages of this thread and playing around with the Pro version of the app but am struggling with creating routes. How do you all build a custom route? From within the app or some other piece of software that you import into Locus?
