News in version 3.1.0

Dear Locusers,

Download additional data

New month is here and also Locus comes with new version.
The list of news is probably short but the most changes were made in core with goal to improve performance and solve some issues.

You can see the most significant change when you open Locus for the first time. Locus asks you for downloading additional data – it’s a new library which helps us to implement offline POIs in next two months.

We are also glad that Locus store is successful project. Minor issues were solved and it seems that you like the welcome gift (three vector maps for free). Purchasing of LoCoins is more stable and secure.

As usual we’ve improved some parts of Locus core – for example reading offline elevation data (HGT files) is more quicker an also lot of solved minor issues.
Enjoy

    Hi, after updating to new version my vector maps from previous version are not recognized ("problem with xxxxx.maps")

    That's rather disapointing :-(

      Hi Peter,
      - does it happen for every your vector maps?
      - can you see the list of vector maps in Menu > Map > Vector ?

      Hi Christian,
      sorry for late response. Please try to measure precisely which process consume your battery. Android default battery tools is not accurate. I suggest to try the GSam battery monitor app.
      Please see discussion at:

    After updating to last version I cannot download google maps anymore nor here maps. Can I return to the previous one?

      Hi John,
      Locus does not support Google Maps nor Here Maps because terms of use. You've probably used unsupported add-on MapTweak which is not developed by Locus team. Please contact developer of mentioned add-on with your issue.
      Thank you
      Best regards
      Petr
