US Michigan LoMap doesn't display great lake shoreline

I just purchased LoMaps US state map of Michigan. It does not display the surrounding Great Lakes shore line defined as blue water body, just white space. Other LoMaps work fine. Is there a fix?

Dear Alan,

the Michigan map is fixed. Please open Menu - Store - Search and open details of Michigan Lomaps > Delete it and after that download it again.

Thank you for the post and I'm sorry for complications

Hello Petr,

Thanks for fixing the map. I just returned from a long trip in the Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan area and used the Locus maps on my tablet in offline mode daily.

The Great Lakes outline worked half of the time but was often not showing until changing zoom levels and was very slow to load while all other information was showing at the usual speed. That would be like viewing world maps without showing oceans to define shorelines.

I used a purchased Locus Michigan map as well as a Wisconsin map downloaded from openandroidmaps.org. Both behaved the same way, so maybe the problem comes from the open street maps web site. I'm assume Locus Maps use the same data source.

It would be very helpful if this could be sorted out for maps of that region to display as soon as other information appears.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for your help -- Alan

Dear Alan.

it's little bit complicated. The lakes are very likely defined properly in OSM ( and yes we use also OSM data). The problem occurs during map generation and there are several reasons. Unfortunately the solution is little bit tricky but we should focus on it after summer.


I'm sorry but I don't have any quick solution

Thank you, Petr
