Hi so my question is very short. Will navigation will work with offline map without data connection? Am going to travel to Latvia and i have a Latvia offline map, but i will not be able to connect to the mobile data.

Hi Tomas,

there are some possibilities to navigate within Locus:

Using

A) tracks computed with online tools like MapQuest during WLan connection and saved in LocusDB

B) Locus add-ons Brouter and Graphhopper for offline use with their own ¨map files¨

C) downloaded tracks

Between these posibilities are slightly different methods to navigate, more see here.

Hello Tomas,

so that you understand - navigation doesn't associate with maps. Navigation needs routing data that are "invisible" which can be different from the map data that are displayed on you phone screen. As KaHeMu correctly wrote, true offline navigation with options of recalculation is provided by cooperating apps Brouter or, a bit garage solution, Graphhopper. Nevertheless I would recommend more information to find here: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:functions:navigation
