Here you can set up the default service for calculating routes for Navigate to feature and the Route planner. Locus has its own service LoRouter but it can also cooperate with external routers. Each service has specific properties, some is functional online-only, some works offline (after downloading offline navigation data).
Online LoRouter doesn't have any additional settings and offers 7 basic routing profiles:
Available only with Premium Gold
The most sophisticated router of the app. It contains many routing profiles with additional configurations.
By default, LoRouter Offline offers 7 basic profiles. Each profile has additional setting option:
You can change the profile selection:
Advanced settings - it is also possible to map a custom profile on an extisting in-app profile
You can download offline routing data in advance which we strongly recommend - or you'll be prompted to download them additionally while planning a route.
Routing data are a part of a LoMap package - you can download it from Locus Store:
Routing data are automatically updated. You can set the update interval:
BRouter offers many more routing profiles with additional configurations:
You can also change the profile selection:
With these, you can link external profiles to the in-app selection:
Besides the LoRouter or BRouter profiles embedded directly in Locus, it is also possible to use profiles provided by the BRouter developer or by other users as the .BRF files:
Poutnik's GitHub page provides further information on this as well as many ready-to-use profiles.
Linking with the app presets enables fast re-setting of the whole app after the navigation start so that its preferences are better suitable for navigation. E.g. cursor is shifted, map rotation is on, the screen is turned permanently on etc. Three most used navigation profiles can be linked - walking, biking and motor vehicle:
It is possible to download other voice sets from the Locus Store.
Available only with Premium Navigation route is recalculated automatically if the deviation from the former route is greater than the parameter distance for recalculation. If you don't follow the recalculated route, Locus Map will recalculate it once again after 30 seconds. You will need internet connection in case an online routing service is selected (e.g. GraphHopper Online or YOURS). For offline routing it is necessary to additionally download and install BRouter co-app and download offline routing data. There are 3 options:
Settings for manual recalculation that can be triggered from navigation panel.
Check this option if you want Locus Map to warn you when you accidentally leave your route. Set the alert distance, alert repetition and type of sound (beep, voice…):
Here you can select set of navigation cursors and set their size (50%-400%). You can also add more from Locus Store or add custom icons.
Select from three options:
Here you can switch on or off navigation statistics - ETA, distance to the finish etc.
The bar with the street name or road number can be switched on/off here.
Each route consists of a chain of routepoints (sort of breadcrumbs). This option navigates strictly from one routepoint to another. When you make a deviation, it tries to get you to the last omitted routepoint.
Keep in mind that this feature may come into conflict with your intentions e.g. when making unwanted detour and part of the original route is not accessible - it will keep navigating you to the first missed routepoint. If you want to skip a routepoint, switch it manually to the next nearest point in the Navigation control menu.
This feature does not work when Auto-recalculation with Point priority is ON.
Sets maximum allowed deviation from the route before switching navigation to guidance back to the route.
Ignores slight deviations of GPS positioning and maintains the navigation cursor position on the navigated route.
Manually drawn or imported routes do not contain navigation commands so when you select navigation along such a route, Locus has to generate the navigation commands according to the shape of the line. This setting defines how often you are prompted of direction changes on the route: none - low - medium - high.
When two turns of a route follow closely, Locus Map notifies of both of them at once. Unchecking divides the navigation command into two separate ones.
Shows a dashed line between your current location and the navigation destination for better understanding of the target direction.
When checked, the navigation is stopped and navigation panel removed when you get to the finish of your route
