News in version 2.20.0

Dear Locusers,

new version of Locus Map app is available on Google Play. We daresay that this release is quite different than previous ones. The reason is new point screen, which is completely changed.

Point screen

New point screen is well arranged and fits for different types of points. Point screen uses full size of your display. You’re able to see more fields and small map preview with direction arrow. Also editing of point is quicker – change the field and simple press back button. Locus automatically saves your changes. Have you tried to add some attachments to the point? The new version has new manager for attachments and you can also add arbitrary file as attachment.

Track recording and waypoints

Recorded track can contain standard points with defined name, attachment or description. Let’s start recording and add new waypoint. They are shown as small red arrows.

Google Places

Google Places is very powerful feature for searching of POIS near to your location. In new version you can load detailed information as photos, opening hours, phone numbers or web pages (Try it Locus > Menu > Search >Google Places).

Other improvements

In the latest version you can highlight the Geocaching logs of your geocaching friends. Garmin icons are fully supported and there are lots of fixed issues: eq. problem with automatic backup, import more zip file at one or direct import files from emails.

New help desk

We’d like to notice the new support portal where you can share your ideas, ask questions or help to solve problem of others. Please visit

    Hi Voldy, two things concerning

    1) When I try to open that link, I get an error message "License Validation checks are damaged or tampered". Looks like several redirects. No idea whether it's a server side problem, something with the connection, or a client problem.

    2) What's the relation to ? If it's going to be replaced, what's with the existing data?

    Best regards, Georg

      Hello Georg

      1) it was temporary problem - hope it works fine now

      2) GetSatisfaction will be completely deleted. As you may see now on Help Desk, all data from GetSatisfaction was moved to Help Desk so there will be no lost.
