Advanced settings

  • Strict route following - depending on the route shape Locus Map automatically selects routepoints that are closer than the pre-set distance. This option switches this automation off and Locus guides along the track strictly from point to point - suitable e.g. for sailing.
  • Frequency of alerts - defines number of alerts of direction changes on the track: low - medium - high
