OSGB coordinates

New to Locus so possibly obvious question - anyway - I have managed to get OSGB coordinates on an OS map and remove Lat/long. But can't get OSGB coordinates on other maps eg OSM Outdoor - Hike & Bike. Is there a way to do this?

Dear Alan,

the coordinates in Locus are independent on the displayed map. Please open Menu > Settings > Language & Units > Type of coordinates > United Kingdom > and select OSGB

I'd also suggest to use the top information panel and display coordinates in this top panel as scribed at https://docs.locusmap.app/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_mainscr_ctrl&s[]=top&s[]=panel#information_field_2

The coordinates remain in OSGB if you change the map.

Thank you

Petr

Petr,

Thank you - all understood and clear. Thanks also for the app generally - it has far more functionality than i'll ever use but who knows? The fact that it doesn't crash every 5 minutes (unlike the OS app) will encourage me to to use it more.

Hi,

great and yes, Locus Map is quite multifunctional but I hope you find it useful.

Thanks, Petr
