Here you can select the default service for calculating routes for Navigate to feature and the Route planner. Locus Map has its own service LoRouter but it can also cooperate with external routers. Each service has specific properties, some are functional online only, and some work offline (after downloading offline navigation data).
This service offers 9 routing profiles and is available online and free of charge.
Available only with Premium Gold
This service offers 9 routing profiles and works offline. To make it work, you have to download offline routing data. Open the additional menu to manage the routing data downloader and automatic updates:
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.
You can download routing data also from Locus Store. Each offline map offers an additional link for download of the data for the area covered by the map:
Routing data is automatically updated. You can set the update interval from 4 days to 2 months:
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. Warning: using a voice set disables “out of the route” notifications.
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 (i.e. LoRouter online or GraphHopper). 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.
Imported routes usually don't contain navigation commands so when you select navigation along such a route, Locus generates the navigation commands according to the shape of the route 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
