Certain topographic symbols do not display anymore (like cave entrances) on LoMaps

Hi!

In short:

Some symbols do not display anymore on LoMaps cartography?

Explanation:

I have just bought your most lovely app a few days ago for my family trip to Norway. We were going to explore a number of caves. After having bought the locusMap on an Android 5.0 smart phone (Samsung Galaxy Note 3).

I had bookmarked a number of caves already and imported a gpx file into the app.

I did see a number of cave entrance symbols (omega like, or like a horse shoe-ish symbol). After the recent Android update to 3.18.4 these symbols disapeared from view. I could not find any setting to make them apear again. It does not seem to depend on zoom level, zooming in or out more did not solve it.

I am using LocusMap 3.18.4, storing all maps on external sd card (set as basemap) and am using the Lomaps & Address Norway dated 02016.04.01 as available on the Locus Store.

I am going to Norway in 7 days time, hope you can find cure or tell me what I am doing wrong:)

Love your app otherwise!

Best regards,

Ludo Sak

Hello Ludo,

Thank you for report and I'm sorry for troubles. Mentioned issues will be fixed in next version. However there is an workaround in case that you don't want to wait for next release

  • Please download attached LocusTheme20160719.zip file
  • Unpack it and copy it into folder /locus/mapsVector/_themes on your device
  • Start Locus Map app > open dialog for switching the theme
  • Do not select any internal theme but tap on "Show more" > and select theme called "Locus theme"

Thank you for understanding
