Locus Map is a very universal app - it can be set for many various activities, and not only the leisure time ones - it can also help professionals collect geo data or locate targets for rescue squads. This versatility and a vast range of features, however, has its drawbacks - using Locus for more activities means a lot of re-setting. Speaking of adjustments to your screen layout, changing the type of navigation recalculation, switching vector map themes, etc.


A Preset is a way of reconfiguring the whole app with just one tap. Technically, it consists of a set of app settings and configurations that can be loaded in one batch. Each Preset can be customized in detail and Premium users can set an unlimited number of Presets.

Initial setup

Activating a preset

  • open Presets
  • tap the selected Preset
  • the app re-configures according to the set of preferences in the Preset

Long-press the preset button in the function panel to display the first three presets:

Editing presets

A newly installed Locus Map contains just one preset called Default. To display its contents, tap Edit from the action menu:
The preset switch box screen appears, indicating what settings can be turned on/off in the preset:
If you want to add more settings options to the preset tap to get to the preset settings selection menu:

  • - setting is added to the preset switch box
  • - setting is NOT added to the preset switch box
  • going back from the menu confirms your selection

Presets do not contain all the settings options Locus offers. There are only the most used preferences that resulted from a user survey.

Adding new Presets

Available only with Premium

This creates a new preset containing the currently active app setup. Change its icon and title and tap ADD


Another method how to add a new preset.
