Used Locus last weekend :)

Fergus Flanagan shared this thanks 8 months ago

I used Locus on 3 separate occasions last weekend, the first was a suggested route by brouter and the second was a route I had to manually create as it was an organised ride over 65 miles. I have to say Locus was brilliant as a navigation tool for both types of ride and kept me from going wrong. I was so happy I finally got Locus to work properly thanks to the help and guidance from Michal Stupka and Libor Poutnik Striz for their patience.

I must admit to coming very close to uninstalling Locus but glad I stayed with it, thanks guys great work.

Thank you too Fergus! We know Locus has a bit steep learning curve but, as yi told you, when you overcome the beginning, it'll reward you many times. Enjoy your rides with us and ask whenever you need.

I am glad I could help. My BRouter profiles wiki can answer some BRouter related questions, and \i can try to explain the rest.

Yes I think I'm beginning to see the potential in this product for all kinds of navigation uses and I'm excited about using it. But like you say there is that learning curve. I come from Google maps and so entering the world of Locus was totally alien. You guys have been great and very responsive to queries I've had so thanks again :)

That's as Libor has put it here somewhere - coming from Google Maps to Locus is like coming from IrfanView to Photoshop :)

Without a doubt expectations have to be readjusted. Apples and oranges!!
