Navigate to...

Standard voice turn-by-turn navigation. Here's how to use it:

1. Select target

Firstly, you have to tell Locus where you want to go.

Directly on map

The simplest and fastest way.

  1. tap a LoPoint, a user point or any other point on the map or hold your finger on the place on the map where you want to be navigated to
  2. tap the navigation button in the bottom bar and select Navigate to

Other location options

When you need to define your target location another way, use location selector:

  1. tap Menu > Navigate to
  2. select method of defining target of your route:


Points from the point manager

Use e.g. in case you want to navigate to some geocache from your database:

  1. select the point from Point manager
  2. tap it to display the point detail screen
  3. tap the navigation menu button from the bottom panel and select Navigate to

2. Start navigation

  • the app immediately generates the route by the last used routing profile (activity or means of transport) and opens it in the route planner. You can edit the route, add waypoints or change the routing profile (see below).
  • tap the navigation button in the top bar.
  • the voice prompt announces the start and starts navigating:

The starting point of your route can be re-defined too, just move it on the map or select another location method from the point menu:

Adding via points

You can add a via point to the route when the navigation is in progress:

The point is added to the route.

Options to do before starting navigation

Changing activity or means of transport

By default, Locus Map generates the route with the latest used routing profile. To change that, tap the route profile selection button and select another profile (activity or means of transport):

Editing the route

Optionally, before you start navigating, you can modify the route's progress. The route planner in which the route is generated offers all possible options:

  • changing parts of the route
  • adding waypoints
  • changing waypoints' order
  • etc.
