Locus Map 4 is here. Enjoy its first release.

Michal, Locus team

As you probably know, and as Locus users you are used to, we develop our applications with great regard to your wishes and ideas for improvement. However, some of your ideas could not be realized without fundamental changes in our work. Because of this, we had to strengthen our team with several real experts, overturn the structure and division of competencies in the team, invest in infrastructure … And also change our business model (see below). However, all this took a little more time than we originally expected.

Implementing such an ambitious plan, while keeping the app running in a normal update mode, was quite a challenge. So thank you for your patience.

The first release

For example, like books are issued in their first edition, also our project Locus Map 4 we now publish in its first version. It is a fully functional product, both its application part and the web service. However, we still have tweaks in the drawer, which we must postpone until the “next editions”.

You have been bombarding us with questions for several months, “when will we finally launch it?” So we said a few weeks ago that we would do our best to make it by the end of March. Which we somehow managed. But in the coming weeks and months you can look forward to more portions of larger or smaller improvements that we are preparing for you.

And what do we have for you now? A brand new app , which offers three levels of use:

You will no longer need to install another application to upgrade the application, as was the case with Locus Map Pro . So there is no need to reconfigure the new app and deal with many other problems.

Locus Map 4 for free

This direct successor to the original Locus Map Free is available free of charge and can do everything you need for a normal leisure activity outdoors:

  • it can show your location on the map, show the direction of your movement
  • search places and addresses on the map
  • record tracks of your hikes and bike rides
  • navigate directly to your destination, along a planned or imported route
  • plan trips, rides and running workouts
  • plus a lot of other little things, including a recording widget that was originally only in the paid app

New interface

Compared to the previous generation, Locus Map 4 has a completely new ergonomic main screen interface. We arrived at it based on your numerous comments and our internal research and testing. It is dominated by a multifunctional map centering and rotation button:

The main menu button has moved next to it. It is now beautifully within easy reach and pushes the main menu from below. It can contain up to 15 function keys.

Above the main menu, there is a button of the new content bar, which is now much more complex, while retaining its original compactness. With it, you can easily switch the map base and its appearance, display points of interest, active items or a new coordinate grid:

Optionally, a track recording button has been added to the main screen. With it, you can start recording quickly and without annoying search in the menu:

The map zoom buttons have moved above the bottom panel and can be optionally hidden, as well as the record button and all sidebars.

The top bar with function buttons has moved to the bottom of the screen, leaving only the info bar. All controls are thus within easy reach of the thumb and there is no need to control the application with both hands.

For left-handers, we’ve also added the ability to side-swap the entire main screen, and to save battery, there’s the ability to switch the app to dark mode.

Online LoMap, LoPoints and LoRouter

Because we didn’t previously have a custom online map to display to users as soon as the app was turned on, we used freely available map services based on OSM data. These were not always according to our ideas, especially in terms of readability and graphic design.

But over the years, we’ve been editing and tweaking our offline LoMaps. We managed to modify them so that it was possible to deploy them on an online server. Now they are now available to everyone for free right after the first start of the application. This includes LoPoints, dynamic points of interest!

We also used online third-party services for navigation and route planning, whether it was GraphHopper or YOURS. To keep online routing under control and to edit and add more profiles, we’ve developed our own LoRouter service. In the first edition, LoRouter offers two pedestrian, three bicycle and two car profiles. We will further expand the number of profiles according to user demand.

You can plan the routes also on the web

That you could do also before on other planning sites, as Locus Map supports importing routes in various formats. However, with our own online maps and a router, you can now plan on our own web planner, which you can find on our new website www.locusmap.app. In the first release, the planner allows you to:

  • calculate the route according to the selected activity
  • add LoPoints to the route in addition to your own points
  • view route elevation profile and basic statistics
  • share route via URL link
  • export the route as a GPX file
  • Premium Gold subscribers have the option of saving the route to the cloud and synchronizing it with Locus on their mobile phone

Premium Silver for those who take the outdoor seriously

Silver unlocks a number of features that you will appreciate as a regular active outdoor sportsman. With a one-year subscription, it’ll cost you € 10 , and you’ll pay € 1.4 for a monthly subscription.

Locus Map Pro owners receive a one-year FREE Premium Silver subscription!

No ads = bigger map

Not only that, the perpetual mis-clicking on the banner ad and the annoying closing of pages that you don’t need to see when riding a bike will disappear. Most importantly, you get up to 10% more of the map on the screen!

Package for sportsmen

  • Sensor connectivity – Locus Map can communicate with a variety of peripherals via Bluetooth and ANT+, such as external GPS units, heart rate, cadence or speed sensors, pedometers and thermometers
  • Audio coach – do you want to get regular reports on your speed, pace, time, and other performance parameters? The Audio coach will serve them directly to your headphones, so you don’t even have to take your mobile phone out of your pocket.
  • Dashboard – turn Locus into a hi-tech bike comp. Set up a transparent layer above the map with all the data you need – speed, elevation, time to destination, route graphs…

Advanced map and track tools

  • Terrain shading, elevation charts, their dynamic coloring according to elevation, slope, and other parameters. All from offline elevation data.
  • Calibration of an image with map – with this you can get any city orientation plan, wall map or a JPG with map downloaded from the internet into Locus…
  • Map overlays – you can overlay two different maps, such as e.g. aerial and tourist, to see more information. Various types can be combined, both online and offline.

Premium Gold squeezes maximum out of Locus Map

For those who want an application without compromise, there is Gold. It contains a complete range of in-app features, web services and offline LoMaps of the whole world, including updates. A full-year subscription costs € 24, monthly you pay € 3.

Locus Map Pro owners get an exclusive 50% discount for a year of using Premium Gold!

Silver included

Of course, Gold includes a large ad-free map screen, a sportsmen package fo features, and mapping and track tools that use offline elevation data. In addition, there are many more improvements, such as the ability to generate circular routes in the planner or to display surfaces and path types:

All offline LoMaps including updates for free

As a standard, you get 3 offline LoMaps for free. As part of the Gold subscription, all LoMaps including updates, which we prepare three to four times a year, are for free. So you always have an up-to-date map without having to connect to the internet.

Built-in offline LoRouter

Navigating and planning routes without an Internet connection hasn’t been easier with Locus. You no longer need to install additional cooperating applications. All you have to do is download the routing data package of the relevant area directly in Locus and set LoRouter as the default offline router.

In the first edition, LoRouter offers three pedestrian, four bicycle, one motorcycle and two car profiles. We’re still working on profiles, so more will be available soon.

Synchronize multiple devices

Do you use Locus Map on multiple devices? Would you like to share your routes and points with them? Want to conveniently back up your data? All this is solved by our new synchronization service.

At its heart is cloud storage, where Locus Map automatically sends your routes and points from your mobile or tablet. For example, just record a track on your mobile phone and the next time you connect to the wifi internet, the track will upload itself to the cloud. This data is then synchronized with your other devices using the same account.

Cloud storage is only an additional service – routes and points remain, of course, on your device, where they are always available to you. If you decide to use the cloud, your data is safe with us. We have fully complied with the development of the cloud with the strictest requirements for the processing of personal data.

Your personal web library of tracks and routes

The cloud storage and sync service is also linked to the aforementioned web planner, which includes a library of your routes and tracks. It stores your planned routes and the library syncs with the apps on your mobile and tablet.

You can view routes from your library on a large PC monitor, share their URL link with friends, or export them as GPX. You can also edit their name and description, in the future we plan to add other options, such as editing the route line and the like.

Share your real time location with your friends and family

Premium Gold also includes Live Tracking Premium service, which allows you to create your own groups for real-time private location sharing. Your friends can view your location either in Locus Map or on the Live Tracking website.

Premium Gold also unblocks the My LIVE location timeout, which allows you to share your real location unilaterally (not to each other, as with live tracking).

Detailed comparison

Of course, above we’ve listed just a quick list of what each version of Locus Map brings to you. If you’d like to study their specific differences, we’ve put together a detailed list .

And what about Locus Map Pro?

For Locus Map Pro, nothing changes. This most popular application in our portfolio (4.8* Google Play rating in March 2021) continues in line 3, currently in version 3.51.1. It has recently received a large package of modifications and fixes and serves to the full satisfaction of its users. We are preparing another update for it in about a month.

If you own Locus Map Pro and are interested in switching to one of the subscribed Locus Map 4 levels, we have an exclusive offer for you:

  • the first year of Premium Silver subscription for FREE
  • 50% OFF for the first year of Premium Gold subscription

Sign in with the same account to both Locus Map Pro and Locus Map 4 to verify your discount eligibility.

In the future, we plan to rename the app to Locus Classic, while retaining all of its existing features and functions.

What awaits us in the future?

As we mentioned in the introduction, we are now presenting the first edition of the new generation of the Locus Map project. We have a lot of plans for future releases. Of the short-term ones, we can reveal the following:

  • additional web planner features – route graphs with road surfaces, the ability to edit route lines, the ability to add and edit custom points, caches, etc., live tracking integration, route import, and more
  • we will continue to improve the application’s user interface – a brand new map manager is planned, redesigning the route detail screens…
  • based on your feedback, we also plan to introduce one-time payments for the Silver and Gold levels, which will be available in the Locus Store or directly on Locusmap.app website.
  • we want to resume work on wearables add-ons, or develop a stand-alone smartwatch app
  • in connection with the integration of live tracking into the web planner, we want to further improve the service to make it even more usable, for example, for search teams and rescue services
  • etc.

Install Locus Map 4 and there will always be something you can look forward to!

      Hi Jakub,
      yes of course, Locus Map Pro is a different app, not connected to Locus Map 4.

    Hey, huge fan here, long time user as well. I would like to use lomaps (especially with the graphics style you have for the maps) on garmin fenix or edge. I know you have an app for fenix watch but it has slow refresh rate (i think its the limit of garmin api or something). Anyways, I wanted to ask you if you could consider making those Lomaps available for download for garmin devices. Make them paid or subscription somehow. I would be glad to pay. That map style is actually most valuable thing for me, its so clear. Please let me know.

    • Michal, Locus team
      31. 3. 2021

      Hi Daniel,
      for the time being, this solution is not planned in the near future but we'll definitely think about it.

    30. 3. 2021

    Exkluzivní nabídka zřejmě není pro mne. I když mám Locus Map Pro a přihlásím se i v Locusu 4, nabídku na Silver předplatné nedostanu. Zatím jsem nenašel výhody nové verze, program s reklamou. Navíc je nová verze permanentně zpoplatněna. Tenhle obchodní model není pro mne...

    • Michal, Locus team
      31. 3. 2021

      Dobrý den, prosím kontaktujte náš support tým na adrese https://help.locusmap.eu/ticket/add a sdělte e-mail, který jste používal v Locus Pro pro přihlášení do Locus Obchodu. Podíváme se na to.

    Als I-Bike Flyer Fahrer benutze ich das Komoot-System, das es kompatibel ist mit meinem Display mit einer Weltkarte inbegriffen.
    Was bietet Ihr Locus ein mehr an Vorteile gegenüber Komoot

    • Michal, Locus team
      1. 4. 2021

      Hi, Komoot is a great app. Locus Map is perhaps more versatile - it offers a great selection of maps of various providers, it has great tools for geocaching, you can share your location with friends in real time etc.

    • Druki
      1. 4. 2021

      Hallöchen, zur Beantwortung der Frage müsste man wissen wie und wofür Komoot genutzt wird. Locus bietet weitaus umfangreichere und flexiblere Möglichkeiten beim Erstellen von Routen, Darstellungsoptionen von Karten und Punkteverwaltung, bietet aber nicht so umfangreiche integrierte User-Routen. Wer allerdings Routen von anderen Apps/Portalen als Datei hat (z.B. Komoot GPX Download), kann diese in Locus importieren.

    • Siegfried
      4. 4. 2021

      Komoot ist eine einfache Navigation mit wenig Funktionsumfang. LocusMaps daggen ist ein Handwerkszeug.

    • Christian
      7. 4. 2021

      Bin zwar nur zu Fuß unterwegs, nutze jedoch beides. Komoot wegen der Community Funktionen, also z. B. um Routen und interessante Orte zu finden, als auch um meine Tracks mit Freunden zu teilen.
      Komoot nutze ich zur Navigation. Deutlich umfangreicher, kann auch offline routen usw.

      • Christian
        7. 4. 2021

        Ich meinte natürlich Locus zur Navigation

  9. Louis

    31. 3. 2021

    Great news! If one-time payments are supported, will it also be possible to use Locus Map 4 without Google Play Services?

    • Michal, Locus team
      1. 4. 2021

      Yes, we have this option on our road plan.

    Nainstalováno, zatím se zdá, že korekt :)
    Vypadá to dobře... chvilku než si zvyknu na ovládání ale asi to půjde :D je to jen o zvyk... a zatím je to příjemné.
    Pluginy rozchozeny

    Dobrý den,
    mám nainslalován jak Locus tak i Locus Pro, ovšem na v.4 se mi provedl upgrade je i Locus

    • Michal, Locus team
      1. 4. 2021

      Locus Map 4 je přímý nástupce Locus Map Free. Locus Map Pro je oddělená aplikace. Obě aplikace sdílejí stejná data, ale mohou být nainstalovány současně.

  13. B. Duda
    1. 4. 2021

    Tenhle hloupý trend na odradit zákazníky a co nejvíce je otrávit s přechodem na měsíční platby nechápu.
    No nic, mam verzi pro a ted se jí snažíte znásilnit. Nikdy nebudu přistupovat na predplatne

    • Michal, Locus team
      1. 4. 2021

      Dobrý den, není to trend, je to bohužel nutnost. Uživatelé chtějí webové služby - plánovač, úložiště, synchronizaci. K tomu kontinuální vývoj aplikace, neustálé přizpůsobování novým verzím operačního systému atd atd. Stále další a další platby za služby třetím stranám, licenční poplatky, v týmu máme dvojnásobek programátorů než před dvěma lety. Tohle vše se nedá utáhnout z jednoho nákupu aplikace. Locus Map Pro jede dál tak, jak jste na něj zvyklý. Jen nebude obsahovat již zmíněné webové služby a hlavní větev vývoje půjde jinudy.

  14. Georg
    1. 4. 2021

    Nice to hear you finally got v4 *and* with combined sustainable business model off the door :-) I am willing to pay 10€/year to support development - any slightly more complex software needs maintenance & bugfixing, but for Locus, some bugs exist already for a long time, indicating dev resources were/are too low to fix them. Hope this gets better now with many subscribers :-)

    At the same time, personally, I do not really know what to do because you decided for "3 feature packages" and do not allow users to pick what they need. Without 2 features of "gold" (offline routing and weather forcast), I do not see a benefit to move from v3/Pro to v4 at all. But paying 24€/year to get a big bunch of "silver" and "gold" features I do not need/use? Also not really motivating.
    I would strongly favor an additional "cherrypicker" or "supporter" package where I pay 10€/year and can choose any e.g. 5 feature blocks like "offline usage", "LoMaps", "planning", "geocaching", "cloud", etc.

    Maybe you'd like to add v3/pro/classic to the comparision https://www.locusmap.app/de/vergleich/ so current users directly see - i.e. no need to reflect - the added/improved features and thus are motivated to buy v4.

    • Michal, Locus team
      1. 4. 2021

      Thank you Georg for your analytic feedback. We'll think about it and see what options we have from Google Play.

  15. maaaca
    1. 4. 2021

    A nějaký rozvoj geocachingové části bude? Třeba odeslání vyluštěných souřadnic na gc.com?

    • Michal, Locus team
      1. 4. 2021

      Ano, hned jak doděláme vše, co máme rozděláno :)

      • maaaca
        2. 4. 2021

        Tak jsem si zkušebně nainstaloval, ale ještě asi chvíli zůstanu u Pro verze.
        Líbí se mi nový přístup k detailům keše, nechápu akorát označení velikostí XS, S, M... Sorry, ale tady jsem asi tradicionalista a na tohle si holt nezvyknu. Dál bych ještě uvítal rychlejší přístup k hintu.
        Nepodařilo se mi přenastavit prostředí aplikace do světlého tématu (v telefonu defaultně tmavý). Ať jsem v nastavení zvolil cokoliv, bylo stále tmavo.
        Trochu nepříjemné je problikávání ikonek při posunu mapou (světlé ikonky občas tmavě problikly).

        • Michal, Locus team
          3. 4. 2021

          Prostředí aplikace se přenastavuje v nastavení > ovládání > displej > dark theme (chybí překlad - dodáme). Problikávání - jaké ikonky máte na mysli?

          • maaaca
            3. 4. 2021

            Právě toto přepínání prostředí mi nefunguje, ať zvolím jakoukoliv variantu, stále mám tmavý režim (telefon mám defaultně v tmavém, ale Locus nechci).
            Ikonky na mapě mi přeblikávají z bílého na tmavý režim (používám GC Summary icons)

          • Michal, Locus team
            6. 4. 2021

            V tom případě bych vás s dovolením odkázal na helpdesk https://help.locusmap.eu/ticket/add, kde se na to mrknou vývojáři.

    Congratulations on the new Locus Map 4.0 Version! The new features are great and everything is working flawlessly.

    Thank you for the immense number of features and configuration options. Locus really is the definition of a "Power User App".

    Of course I immediately added my gold subscription and I'm looking forward to the future development!

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Thank you Bernhard! We'll do our best so that all power users stay satisfied :)

    Gratuliere zur neuen Version, einfach klasse sehr einfach zu bedienen, Respekt!!
    Ein Probleme habe ich bei mir festgestellt. Neue Offlinekarten (LoMaps) werden nicht in dem Reiter der Offlinekarten angezeigt, es werden nur die alten, in der Vorgängerversion gekauften Karten angezeigt.
    Mach ich da etwas falsch?
    Auch werden die von mir neu runtergeladen Karten nicht als solche markiert.
    Ganz liebe Grüße vom Niederrhein

    Vielen Dank für die vorbildliche Lösung der neuen/alten Locusversionen (Classic, Basic, Silber, Gold). Ich bin langjähriger Locus Pro User und begeistert von der 4er-Version! Natürlich habe ich die Gold-Version aboniert, weil die Mehrwerte sich rentieren und um das heldenhafte Locus Team zu unterstützen! Großes Lob: Ich habe noch nie einen so smoothen Übergang bei einem Refactoring einer Software/App erlebt. Weiter so, ihr seid SUPER!

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Druki, thank you so much for your kind words. We approached the transtition with utmost carefulness albeit we were worried how it would be accepted. Two years ago, when we published our intentions for the first time, a lot of our users got upset by it. Since then therefore, we put a great effort into designing the best possible solution for our users and us too. Hopefully, we succeeded.

    1. 4. 2021

    Hi Locus team,
    locus map is great, v3 pro and v4. In addition, the web page is a valuable addon. Supscription is not really attractive, one time payment like pro version would be a good offer. I fully agree with George's previous comment.
    Keep up the good work.

    Sehr gut, das man jetzt auch am PC die Routen planen kann.... :-) Hoffentlich kommt bald auch noch eine IMPORT Funktion für bereits vorhandene GPX dazu, das wäre auch noch sehr hilfereich... :-)

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi, of course, the web planner is now only in the beginning. We've got many features planned for it, including GPX import.

      • Ilya
        7. 4. 2021

        We are waiting very much for GPX-import. Without it I don't want to buy Gold premium.

    • Thomas
      5. 4. 2021

      Workaround für die Gold Edition: Kopiere die GPX aufs Handy und Importiere die GPX in Locus Maps. Danach synchronisiere Locus Maps auf dem Handy mit dem Webseite. Dann taucht sie auch im Web auf. Funktioniert nur mit Gold Abo.

    • Evgeni Nikolov
      7. 4. 2021

      I agree - this is very useful. For instance I get many tracks from Komoot/Outdooractive/Alpenverein active, since I love LocusMaps for navigation.

  21. jason
    2. 4. 2021

    please offer a one-time payment for the silver and gold version!

    and: the new version (for example silver) is an app independent of locus pro (3.5)? I.e. I can try and test with two different locus apps independently of each other?

    thanks for your support!

    • Jan, Locus Team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi Jason, introduction of one-time payments is planned to the end of the year, although due to Google billing conditions they will not be as cost-effective as subscription models for the users.
      Yes, Locus Map Pro is independent app, so you can have it installed together with Locus Map 4 on your phone. Depending on your setup, they will even share your library, so you can seamlessly switch between them anytime you want.

      • Jason
        3. 4. 2021

        but I have to install all my settings again (eg themes, cursors, srtm data, line colors, dashboards and so on)?

        and:
        how much will this one-time payment cost approximately? Some say it will be around 100 Euros...!

        • Michal, Locus team
          3. 4. 2021

          Hi Jason,
          the best solution is to use the backup manager > backup settings in your Pro, then the backup manager in LM 4 > restore. SRTM data (and maps, points, tracks, routes) are shared between the two apps.

          The prices of the one-time payments haven't been set yet but it definitely won't be that much.

    Dobry den,
    novy Locus vypada fajn a rozumim i tomu, ze pokud se ma udrzovat aplikace stale aktualni, vcetne pridruzenych sluzeb, pak to neco stoji.
    Uvidim, budu ted paralelne pouzivat PRO i GOLD verze. Prosim jen o informaci, kde v LM4 GOLD naleznu spravce ANT+ jako je mozne ve verzi LM PRO.
    Dekuji, drzim palce a mnoho spokojenych uzivatelu.

    • Jan, Locus Team
      3. 4. 2021

      Díky! Správce ANT+ najdete v MENU>Všechny funkce>nastavení>ANT manager.

    2. 4. 2021

    Congratulations for the new locus and many success with it. There is now no doubt for me that I will switch and I'm looking forward for it.
    One question concerning your plans: will the be a similar function of webservice interface to a routing portal as it was to Gpsies? I still miss this way of planning tours since they switch to another provider and the interface from locus was cut.
    Best regards
    Frank

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi Frank,
      we've launched the web route planner together with Locus Map 4, see https://web.locusmap.app. For now, it serves as a planner and browser of your personal track library (when you are Premium Gold subscriber) but there are also plans for a public route library like GPSies.com used to be.

    Zdravím. Mám Locus pro. Uvažujem na skúšku nový Locus 4 gold na jeden rok. Bude sa možné po tomto obdobý vrátiť späť k Locusu Pro? Alebo bude potrebné znova zaplatiť jednorazovú platbu za Pro verziu.
    Dík za odpoveď.

      Nejen že se můžete k Locus Map Pro (do budoucna Locus Classic) kdykoliv vrátit, dokonce jej můžete používat ve vašem telefonu zároveň bez ohledu na to zda Locus Map 4 budete mít v režimu Free, Silver nebo Gold.

    I have Locus Map Pro with Dropbox for synchronization. I create my routes using a web browser with various maps (hiking, cycling), export them to Dropbox and off I go.
    What am I getting with Locus Map 4 Silver? Ads?

    • Jan, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi, with LM4 Silver you are basically getting next gen Locus Map Pro with some already substantial improvements - see related FAQ on our PREMIUM page.
      Locus Map Pro will be still around though, so you can decide what suits your needs best!

  27. Peter
    2. 4. 2021

    In my country after logging in with Locus Pro associated account L4 offers me Gold Annually Exclusive for ~12 € / year, with renewal at ~24 € per month afterwards. Is that some glitch in pricing or wording, or is it a correct monthy price?

    • Jan, Locus Team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi Peter, thanks for your report, that is for sure mistake! The price is 24€/year. I assume you are from Slovakia, the issue in wording will be fixed in next update.

    Können beide Versionen also LocusMap Pro und die neue Version 4 parallel auf einem Gerät laufen ohne sich gegenseitig zu beeinflussen?

    • Jan, Locus Team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi Matt, yes, they can run in parallel without problem. They will both share your library (if you didn't put it in private folder), so you can switch between then seamlessly anytime you want.

        Hi Jan,
        Gerade einmal installiert um einen Blick drauf zu werfen...
        Keine Werbeeinschaltungen = Mehr Fläche für die Karte ?
        das gilt dann wohl nur für Silber und Gold und sollte eigentlich nicht extra erwähnenswert sein weil selbstverständlich für eine premium APP.
        der massive Werbebanner stört mich schon sehr, es wäre prima wenn man eine kurze Frist zum testen hätte ohne von adds genervt und abgelenkt zu werden. Ich denke ich werde zunächst bei meiner Pro Version bleiben...

        • Michal, Locus team
          3. 4. 2021

          Hi Matt,
          of course, the free version of LM4 contains ads just like the original Locus Map Free used to. To get an ad-free app is one of the greatest motivations to subscribe to Premium, that's common not only for Locus but for all paid apps in general.
          No need to worry about that though if you are a Pro user.

    Ahoj. Nádhera. Dík. A taky dotaz - jdou v plánovači zadávat souřadnice? Pokud ano nenašel jsem správný formát. Dík zz

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Zdravíme, pokud máte na mysli plánovač v aplikaci, samozřejmě to jde (menu plánovače > přidat bod > souřadnice). Ve webovém plánovači tato možnost zatím není, do trasy lze přidávat pouze výběrem přímo na mapě nebo klepnutím na bod zájmu.

      • ZZ
        3. 4. 2021

        Myslel jsem WEB plánovač. Tak to rychle přidělejte ať se už nikdy nemusím vracet k BaseCamp. A ještě jeden dotaz - nelze sdílet přes cloud mimo tras i uložené body? To by bylo super. A ver.4 se Vám povedla fakt. ZZ

        • Michal, Locus team
          6. 4. 2021

          Zobrazování, správa a sdílení bodů na cloudu je rovněž v pořadí, prosím vydržte :)

    2. 4. 2021

    hm, rozumiem potrebe platit vyvojarom, hlavne ak teeba prevadzkovat aj cloudove sluzby k tomu. cena 10 eur rocne je v pohode. ja teda pouzivam len record cesty a uploadnem to na stravu. a samozrejme obcas mapu, ked som v neznamej oblasti. na druhej strane sa to zacina predrazovat, akchce clovek pouzivat aj stravu a aj tak na nej vyuzije len zlomok moznosti. je tu nejaka ambicia casom nahradit v nejakej casti stravu? v podstate ma na strave nezaujimaju porovnania s inymi, mna zaujima sledovanie mna sameho, zlepsovanie sa. teda bude mozne tvorit v tom vasom cloudovom prostredi segmenty a merat si historiu prejdenia tychto segmentov?

    • Jan, Locus Team
      3. 4. 2021

      Každý používá Stravu trochu jinak a v dohledné době nemáme ambice ji plně nahradit - částečně pro někoho ale třeba časem ano. Aniž bych mohl být nyní více konkrétní, oblast měření aktivit určitě chceme dále zlepšovat. Podpora segmentů prozatím závisí na poptávce po takové funkcionalitě od uživatelů, neváhejte tedy využít náš helpdesk portál a třeba se zde ozvou další, co by segmenty uvítali. https://help.locusmap.eu/topics/idea/status/all/category/all/sort/popular/page/1

    2. 4. 2021

    Have you thought of offering some kind of family membership?

    I’m a longtime user and fan of Locus Pro, and I understand, that a one-time-payment might not be a sufficient price model for long time development, but the price increase for multiple users is quite high. The 10 € one-time App could be used with multiple family members through the Google Play family library. The new price model means at least 10 € per user per year, and it seems some offline features of Pro are only included in Gold (though most part of Gold seem to be new cloud based features, which justifies a price increase). It would be great, if there was some kind of family plan that is cheaper than multiple subscriptions.

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi Simon,
      for now, it is too soon for us to announce any pricing changes. I perfectly understand your point but we need at least a few months of this new business model running before we can make an assessment and evaluate its profitability. Then we can start making decisions about any possible changes.

  32. Ser
    2. 4. 2021

    I would be happy to get the Gold subscription it you would implement the 3D view of the terrain based on the DEM / elevation files (beside the already available the shaded mode overlay).
    Just imagine how great it would be to be able to view the topography of the 3D terrain from a 45 degree angle and rotate the map as in Google Earth or Garmin BaseCamp. Both are based on the same DEM elevation source.
    Satellite images maps are no good with the current "shadded reliever overlay" but with an actual 3D viewing mode it would be ideal for better and intuitively judging the shape of the relief.

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Hi, this option is still on the table but it can't be implemented easily. It requires a different way of rendering, the whole app core would have to be rebuilt. Regarding the weak demand for it, it is not on our immediate road plan.

  33. Milancer
    3. 4. 2021

    Nový Locus vypadá moc pěkně, pohodlnější ovládání, trochu nezvyk v dialogových oknech. Ale při včerejším výletě dost zklamal, spotřeba baterie je o 50% vyšší! Běžně mi Locus bral asi 12% za hodinu. Včera skončil po 3 hodinách. Při srovnávacím testu za stejných podmínek se stejným zařízením je opravdu velký rozdíl, PRO 12%, 4 silver 24% za hodinu. Používám Locus pro mapování OSM a GC ale tohle je zásadní nevýhoda nové verze.

    • Michal, Locus team
      3. 4. 2021

      Dobrý den, děkujeme za informaci, prověříme to. Nicméně zatím jste první, kdo nám reportuje vyšší spotřebu a při testování jsme nic takového nedetekovali.

      • Milancer
        4. 4. 2021

        Problém s vysokou spotřebou částečně vyřešen přepnutím volby rozlišení v nastavení systému. Při nastavení "automatická volby rozlišení", LM4 nastavil FHD, PRO jen HD.
        Po ručním nastavení "HD" se spotřeba snížila na 16% za hodinu.

    As a long term Pro user I'd like to test the SILVER subscription. For activation I need to login. Which account should I use to get free subscription? The Google account or my Locus shop account?
    Normally I hate subscriptions but to support the development of Locus and the effort the team invests in the boards to help users, pay for the subscription is more than okay!

    Gratulacje. Z niecierpliwością czekałem na LM4 szczególnie na stronę internetową do planowania wędrówek i biblioteki swoich tras. Pytanie, za przejście na Gold płaci się przez GooglePlay czy trzeba zakupić Locoint w Lostore ? i jeśli decyduję się na subskrypcję roczną Gold to czy mogę zapłacić z góry 24€ ? czy na platformie internetowej będzie można tworzyć grupą znajomych którym udostępnimy wgląd w nasze trasy wędrówek? Pozdrawiam i ruszamy na szlaki z LM4.

    • Michal, Locus team
      6. 4. 2021

      Hi Bogusław, subscription purchasing is processed via Google Play. If you are a Pro user, you'll get the Gold with 50% discount for one year. Community or social features on the website are planned but not in the near future.

  41. Jon Reed
    4. 4. 2021

    I'm glad to see that I no longer have to use my password to get back into my phone home screen when using Locus as it was adminiatrator locked or something... For me that's worth the silver subscription alone!

    Love the menu at the bottom, I will subscribe as I have Pro already and use Locus all the time, but I do think the €24 euros a year is too much. There's quite a few apps that do this subscription model now and mentally I seem to not be prepared to go past €1 a month. I know, I'm mean, but I suspect there's lots of people who think this way. €24 sounds a lot where as €1 a month doesn't....

    I know you are running a business and need to make a profit and I apologise for my meanness!!

    On the other hand I'd be happy to pay a larger one off fee and buy my maps as needed rather than the €2 a month.

    • Michal, Locus team
      6. 4. 2021

      Hi Jon, as a Pro user you get the Gold for 12€ (1€ monthly) for the first year. Then you can go on if you like it or, downgrade to Silver that costs also 12€.

  42. Roland Eisner
    4. 4. 2021

    Hi Menion and team, i used Locus Map Pro for years now and just installed Locus Map 4 and became Gold member. Now how do i migrate all my tracks and waypoints recorded and created with Locus Map Pro to Locus Map 4? The default directories configured in Locus Map Pro are on the external sd-card. Is there a way to upload this stuff from Locus Map Pro to the Locus cloud and share it there with Locus Map 4?

    • Thomas Freier
      5. 4. 2021

      You can do it with export to Dropbox and download and import in the new app.
      If you have some experience you can connect your phone via USB to PC and open the files in browser. If you had stored all data on SD card:
      Old App:
      Card\Android\data\menion.android.locus.pro\files\Locus\data\database
      copy this 2 files tracks.db, waypoints.db
      to:
      Card\Android\data\menion.android.locus\files\Locus\data\database
      It will overwrite tracks and points you have added to the new app!
      This worked well for me. All points and tracks are now in the new app.

    Hallo,
    Locus Map 4 finde ich sehr gelungen, die Plazierung der Buttons ans untere Ende ist so gut, das man mit den Grundeinstellungen prima zurecht kommt.
    Ich habe meine Locus Map Pro- Version auf meinem Phone bereits auf die Gold- Version abgedatet; auf meinem Tablet habe nur auf die free- Version umgestellt,
    da Google für die Gold- Version (die ich ja bereits abboniert habe) nochmals abbuchen wollte; d.h. die Installationsroutine ist noch verbesserungswürdig in Bezug auf Mehrgeräteinstallation eines Nutzers.
    Die Übertragung von Routen, die am PC mit Garmin BaseCamp oder der WEB- Version des BRouter auf mein Phone funktioniert wie bisher (Pro), die Routingfunktionen von Locus Map 4 muß ich noch ausprobieren.
    Auch meine gekauften LoMap- Punkte werde ich jetzt nicht mehr für LoMap- Karten sondern für z.B. Reiseführer verwenden.
    Ich bin gespannt auf die noch kommenden Features, insbesondere auf die Kombination von PC und Phone in Bezug auf Planung und Datenspeicherung (Archivierung)

    • Michal, Locus team
      6. 4. 2021

      Hi Ronald,
      Premium Gold that you subscribed to is valid for all devices with the same Google account (the same way it is with the license for Locus Map Pro). So, install LM 4 on your tablet, go to the "Go Premium" in the main menu, select Gold - don't worry, you will not be charged twice. Locus Map will just re-set to the subscribed version.

    • Michal, Locus team
      6. 4. 2021

      Hi Michael, Locus Map is primarily developed for dry-land activities. Nevertheless, at least the co-app BRouter offers "river" routing profile and it is possible to load boating maps as well. When there is a wider demand for boating features from our users, we'll implement more.

    die nicht funktionierende 2. Installation am Tablet lag an einem anderen Google Acount (Tablet).
    Das Erstellen von Routen im Locus Map beta - WEB Planer funktioniert prima
    Auch die Möglichkeit, die Route in der Cloud zu speichern klappt; allerdings wäre eine Möglichkeit der Bennennung der "export.gpx" Datei vor dem Export sinnvoll, da die Datei im Download- Ordner des PC abgelegt werden (export.gpx; export(1).gpx; export(2).gpx usw); den für die Datei ursprünglich verwendeten Namen (Datum und Uhrzeit) vorzusehen wäre am einfachsten.
    Das Synchronisieren der am PC erstellten (Locus Map beta) Route mit Phone und Tablet funktioniert ebenfalls wunderbar.
    Die angelegten Trackordner werden auch in der WEB- Ansicht unter "MEINE BIBLIOTHEKEN" angezeigt; allerdings fehlt die Darstellung der Symbole (Unterscheidung der Tourart ist in der Detailansicht vorhanden) und die Anzeige der Ordnerbelegung (bei der Ordnerbelegung ist nur die Gesamtmenge sinnvoll, da bei 2, oder mehr Geräten auch unterschiedliche Trackmengen zur Ansicht geladen sein können).
    Das Bearbeiten eines Track- Titels in der WEB- Ansicht erleichtert die Nachbearbeitung zu Hause am PC sehr, wünschenswert wäre noch eine Möglichkeit Farbe der Tracks etc. ebenfalls am PC (WEB) zu ändern. Auch die Editiermöglichkeit einzelner Tracks fehlt.
    Auch die Gruppen (MEINE BIBLIOTHEK) auf Festplatte zu speichern fand ich nicht.
    Eine sehr sinnvolle Möglichkeit GPX (oder auch KML) - Dateien in Locus Map WEB zu importieren steht noch auf der Wunschliste (Import funktioniert zwar schon - aber umständlich).

    Hey,
    congratulations to the new APP and thank you for creating and updating one of the beat apps ever. For now I am still happy with Locus Maps Pro, but I will have an eye on the new version and get the abo, if it brings me enough benefits. So first of all a big "thank you“ to still keep Locus Maps Pro available in the actual status.

    One thing was always missing for me in Locus: Offline-Search for adresses and points of interest from the Map data. I think, there was also a feature request in the old Version. In Osmand this works really fine. For example to show all Restaurants or fuel stations around on the map. I guess, there were some technical problems with the map format. Are there any plans to implement this in Locus 4?

    Stefan

    • Michal, Locus team
      6. 4. 2021

      Hi Stefan, offline search of addresses was implemented a few years ago (see https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:functions:search#offline_search). Offline search of LoPoints has also been available for years, see https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:points:locus_maps_pois#search. The latter, however, will be better integrated with the general "Search" feature in the future.

      Hi Jens, if you don't prefer subscription model of Locus Map 4, there is still Locus Map Pro available for a single payment.

    Unter Einstellungen, Karten, Kartentools habe ich die Bildschirm Lupe gefunden. Wie bekomme ich diese in eine direkte Menü Ebene. In der alten Version war die Karten Lupe direkt zugänglich und ich hatte es oft genutzt.

      Hi Gerhard,
      we are sorry for this inconvenience. The magnifier will be available for inserting into a function panel in the next app version. Please wait a few days.

    Zdravím,
    nainstaloval jsem si novou 4 verzi a zatím to vypadá, že je vše OK a nové prostředí je opravdu přehlednější. Nějaká chybka se občas najde (nešlo mi rovnou zakoupit LoCoiny pro nákup nějaké mapy, ale obešel jsem to přes obchod). Ale to je určitě detail, který se brzy vychytá.
    Dotaz zní,
    - jestli je nějak pokročeno s návodem či novým custom screen?
    - kde je možné hlásit chybu mapy. Resp. vyhledání je OK, jen popisek mapy je špatný.

    Hodně úspěchů, držím pěsti.

      Dobrý den, děkujeme. Chyby prosím hlaste na https://help.locusmap.eu/ticket/add. Je to nejrychlejší způsob, jak dostat problém rovnou k vývojářům. Na "návodu" čili manuálu se pracuje, custom screen je v pořadí. Chyby v mapě jsou problém OSM podkladu, takže buď použijte OSM poznámku v Locusu nebo přímo kontaktujte OSM komunitu (Openstreetmap.org)

      Dobrý den, vyzkoušejte automatické zapínání/vypínání displeje a vypínání GPS pokud máte přerušený záznam trasy.

      dobrý den, nastavte si v LM 4 cesty k mapám stejně jako v LM Pro, nejlépe přes zálohu nastavení LM Pro a její obnovu v LM 4.

    Hned jsem zakoupila gold.
    Jinak taky mam problem se zobrazenim, jak uz tady bylo zmineno. At prepinam mezi dark nebo light nic se nedeje. Ikonky z panelu jsou tmave a nejsou videt. Kdyz kliknu na trasu, tak text je bily a taky neni videt. A sem tam taky cosi problikava 😢
    Jinak s novou verzi jsem se tesila na sdílení zaznamenane trasy s fotkou, mapou a grafem prevyseni jak to ma treba garmin a sports tracker a bohužel to tu stale neni, i kdyz vyvojari slibovali, ze to bude kazdou chvili.

      Dobrý den, webová knihovna je zatím v prvním vydání, spousta věcí v ní chybí, včetně synchronizace médií. Až to bude umět, bude možné sdílet trasy s fotkami jak to umí konkurence. Makáme na tom.

    Hi the Locus team; need some help to translate this web page of description in french ? For sure we are numerous french language users (and definitely not well known for beeing very easy with foreign languages !), this could help to improve fame of Locus Map ....

    • Michal, Locus team
      7. 4. 2021

      Hi Jean-Pierre, thank you for your offer. Yes, we know we need more localizations of the website, and not only French. We have it on our road plan but not immediately. At the moment we are trying to cope with the massive feedback after the LM4 release so when the situation is calmer, we can go on improving :) Please send me your offer at pr@asamm.com so that it doesn't get lost in this thread. Thanks!

    Akonáhle vyšla nová verzia, využil som zľavu na Gold verziu; úplne všetko je super.
    Sklamalo mal len to, že odhadovaný čas LoRouter trás na spodnej lište je ešte menej presný, než bol pri BRouter alebo GraphHopper.
    Funkcia pre detailné ETA je veľmi presná, sedí takmer dokonale s reálnym časom, ale pri trase do/z kopca mi detailné ETA píše napr. 1h30 a LoRouter len 25min. Dúfam, že sa táto funkcia časom zlepší.

    • Radim, Locus team
      8. 4. 2021

      Dobrý den, aplikace používá pro počítání ETA kombinaci různých údajů. Pokud by např. záznam trasy v profilu "chůze" běžel v autě, mělo by to vliv. Pokud to není tento případ, prosíme rovnou na https://help.locusmap.eu/ticket/add

    Radost z toho nemám, ale naprosto tomu kroku rozumím. Chtěl bych se zeptat, jestli je zvýhodněná nabídka pro uživatele verze Pro je nějak časově omezená (jestli existuje nějaké datum, do kdy lze nabídku využít). Díky

    • Michal, Locus team

      Dobrý den, nabídka není ničím omezená, jelikož LM Pro je stále dostupné k prodeji.

    I have been using LocusPro for several years and I am thrilled! The best app I have. Again and again I support the Locus team by buying LoMaps - but now I can't understand at all why a subscription model is introduced.
    I reject such subscription offers, a one-time payment amount would be much better.

    About the new Locus 4.0:
    As a LocusPro user, you can get the "silver version" for free for one year, and the "gold version" for half price for one year.

    What happens if you first decide on the "silver version", but then after maybe 6 months you want the "gold version"?
    As a LocusPro user, will you then also be charged half the annual price/preferential price (in this case 12€)?

    And, if you want to cancel a subscription (silver or gold) - how/where do you cancel?

    • Michal, Locus team
      9. 4. 2021

      Hi Conny, unfortunately, financing new cloud service, web services (LoRouter, weather forecast, web planner, data storages, maintenance services...), continuous app development and maintenance by selling LoMaps wouldn't prevent our company from going bankrupt. Therefore we had to go into subscriptions.

      When you want to upgrade your subs, your old subscription is terminated at the moment of confirmation of the payment for the higher plan. The remaining unused sum for the old subscription (actual price) is subtracted from the full price of the remaining time of the Gold.

      You can cancel any time directly within the app > menu > my subscription or in your Google Play > menu > subscriptions.

      • Conny
        9. 4. 2021

        Thanks for your reply, but I am still unsure:

        What do you mean by "actual price"?
        After a few months of free use of Locus Silver (as a LocusPro user), do I then pay a proportionate share of the discounted 12€ or of the 24€ when I switch to Locus Gold?

  67. Andy

    I paid for the LoMaps update several times a year, now when I buy the annual Silver subscription, I will have to pay for the map update anyway. Bravo Locus team

    • Michal, Locus team
      9. 4. 2021

      Hi Andy, the revenue from LoMaps cover just their maintenance costs. The price of Silver covers just the app updates and maintenance.

      The original model of selling lifetime licenses of LM Pro + shares from selling maps unfortunately became unsustainable for our company. Either we could abolish our busines and stop developing Locus Map or try to soup up the app with a bundle of web services etc. and offer it with subscriptions. We chose the latter.

    Locus Map Pro is outstanding. Whereas I really would like to support Locus, I must say that I don´t need the LoMaps, because I like the free maps from openandromaps.org a lot more.
    Also I think I don't need the Silver and Gold version, because I'm really not a friend of cloud based data handling.
    Why not use a open source peer to peer syncing software like syncthing? Without any cloud my Locus is syncronized between the smartphone and the tablet. No need for any other service, just use your brain and use a simple and secure solution!
    I think only lazy people need clouds for syncing.

    • Michal, Locus team
      9. 4. 2021

      Hi Michael,
      great you found the best solution for you. You can stay with Locus Map Pro, we'll go on maintaining and updating it for you. Cloud sync is a standard nowadays, people are lazy (:-) and want their data seamlessly synced not only with tablet but also with PC and have it available anywhere in the world.

    Mam Locus pro 3.5. Z blogu jsem nepochopil na co se jeste muzu tesit, nebo zda je to uplne mrtva verze. Popravde predplatne silver je tragicke zdrazeni verze pro. Chapu placeni online sluzeb, ale nechapu proc platit vypalne za pouzivani funkci z pro verze. Dark mode za to urcite nestoji. Rad budu pouzivat mrtvou pro vezi a dal si platit za online sluzby. Mrzi me tato tragicka zmena.

      Dobrý den,
      tohle "výpalné" financuje nikoli používání funkcí, ale jejich další rozvoj, udržování aplikace při životě a uživatelskou podporu. Ani já se teď tady s vámi nebavím zadarmo. Operační systém Android se neustále rozvíjí (bohužel stále více iOS směrem). Na tento vývoj je potřeba reagovat, jinak app buď nebude na nových Androidech fungovat, nebo neprojde schvalovacím řízením Googlu. K tomu přičtěte poplatky za GraphHopper, vyhledávání adres v Googlu nebo DarkSky za předpověď počasí. Z tohoto pohledu LM Pro nebude mrtvá nikdy dokud ji nestopneme uplně.

    Mam LMPro i nie mogę się zalogować do planera internetowego, wyskakuje napis:
    „Ponieważ świadczymy tę usługę z UE, potrzebujemy Twojej zgody z RODO. Prosimy o potwierdzenie w aplikacji mobilnej Locus Map”
    Czy potrzebna jest wykupiona subskrypcja silver lub gold?

    • Andy
      10. 4. 2021

      Planować możesz bez rejestracji, natomiast zapisywanie tras tylko dla Gold. Tym samym zalogować się do panelu mogą tylko użytkownicy Gold.

    I have this question about Premium Gold version and my "web library of tracks and routes". What if I quit Gold and switch to Silver or Free, will my library be deleted? I use Locus seasonally only in the spring - autumn period, so in the season I would buy the months that interest me, so I ask what about my library when I will not pay any subscription during the winter (Free version)?
