The Locus version of the POIs is now finally relesased and included in the map downloads

A separate download of the POIs is not necessary

The result exceeds all my expectations – I use this feature on most of my trips. Never before it was so easy to find the nearest drinking water source on long bike-trips (eg)

As always, I strongly recommend – especially for Locus – to download the map via quick installation. The POIs and the latest version of the render theme are installed in one go.
Even I do it this way – it couldn’t be more comfortable and safe.

The naming convention remains as described in the previous post:

  • [name]_oam.osm.map (= the map file itself, appears in the Locus Map Manager as [name oam])
  • [name]_oam.osm.db (= the POI file for Locus, ORUX users can delete it)
  • [name]_oam.osm.poi (= the POI file for Oruxmaps, Locus users can delete it)

If you participated in the BETA test of the locus-pois, please delete all poi files, empty the cache and then install the new maps+pois. Reason: The BETA-pois were partly buggy and the fragments in the cache disturbs the operation of Locus.

How all this works, incl adding the POI button to the right function-panel + cache_delete you will find

      Hi,

      The contourlines are part of the maps, you have to activate the Elevate rendertheme
      (Install of the Rendertheme is done if you direct install the map as shown in the Video)

      Please take a look at this Video_Manual ;-)
