The new LOCUS-POIs are now available for the OpenAndroMaps maps.
These Pois go far beyond the usual POIs available under Mapsforge. The integration in Locus is perfect.

A clear word: The original locus-pois that come with the LoMaps also include the OFFLINE location search – this feature is not available in the OAM LoPois.
If you want to use the new POIs for Locus you should have a look into the excellent LOCUS manual:

As a first step, the button for the POIs should be placed in the right-hand control bar:

This can be easily solved by clearing the cache:
