Locus Pro without Google

Jo Krug shared this question 6 months ago

Hi,


is there any possibility to get Locus Map Pro running without Google Services? I purchased this great app via Playstore but now I want to get rid of Google. But as I can't live without some functions I'm using microg (use some Google functions without actually sending too much to them). I tried to install Locus via Yelp (Playstore Clone) and my own Google Account, but can't Locus get starting. In the initializing screen I get the 1811 error (can't find what it means). I see that the missing Google services is the problem.


So is there any other way to get it working? I mean besides Amazon? As I don't want to use their services either.

Hello Jo Krug.

Thank you for your question.

Google services are necessary for Locus licence verification.

Locus Pro is available via Amazon and Google Play store only.

Would you like to refund money of your purchased license?

If so, please, contact me.


Kind regards

Hello Hanka,

I was planning to ask exactly the same as Jo did.

Are really Google Play Services (official/original, not the MicroG replacement) necessary even when I buy the Locus Pro in the Amazon Appstore?

In any way I'd like to ask for a refund. And based on the answer to my question above, I will or will not buy the app in the Amazon Appstore.

You develop such a great app. I'm sad I'm not able to use it without Google. But I understand it's convenient to use their app payment system.

BTW it's strange that the search box found nothing for "microg" but this Jo's question contains exactly that.

I went ahead and bought the pro version in the Amazon store and it works, even without google play services. Could you, Hanka, please reimburse my payment in the Play Store? Thanks.
