"bench" symbol is not displayed (internal Hike/bike theme)

Solved

Opposite to Elevate/Elements openandromap themes, "bench" symbol is not displayed. Please see attached screenshots.


Why it is important for me — I hike with my 4-years old daughter, she can do at least 10km tours, but she likes benchs :)


Also, there is also "swing" symbol.


Used maps: result the same regardless of is it openandromap or LoMap (germany_south). As you have to monetised product, I prefer to buy LoMap not only because it provides POI.

Hi,

I thought more traditional maps like Kompass, IGN or some city plans. We quickly discussed it in our team and from our opinion map shouldn't contain them. More over there are mentioned alternative themes that can helps.

Thank you for understanding

Hello,

The bench aren't really visible in Locus internal themes. It's not a bug, we removed them about two years ago with goal to simplify the theme. I can understand your situation but I really think that the bench isn't common element in standard hiking maps. But the "bench" element is in raw map data and you can use alternative theme to display them (as you did)

Swing symbol - I think you mean swing gate. It's really missing and this is a bug. It'll be fixed in next version of LoMaps.

Thank you

> isn't common element in standard hiking maps


@Petr Voldan Please install Osmand+ app and set "Map style" to "Touring View" You will see bench :) Please see attached screenshot. You don't need even to configure "More Details", just enable default map style for hiking ;)


So, it will be cool if I can continue to use internal theme. If you don't want to display it by default, just give an checkbox :) (currently you provide 4 checkboxes, Elevate theme or Osmand+ app provides much more).


(to be sure that Locus Map will be awesome for every user without need to install / seeking alternatives app or themes).

Ok. Thanks. As result I have to use openandromaps in addition to LoMap (since POI supported only for LoMap, http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/separating-poi-db-downloads-from-map-downloads#comment-35409). In any case there are numbers of missed functionality in the default internal theme. Will be cool if default theme will have checkboxes to enable such symbols (and "special constructions" / "accommodations") but as I see (http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:advanced:map_tools:theming), no even symbol SVG file for bench and other.
