Access=Private Barrier=gate

Paul Hurst shared this question 2 years ago

I live within a housing estate and OSM map has tags Access=Private Barrier=gate.

Locus Map can never start/end navigation commands from my address, rather starts from the first "open" road outside the barrier/gate.

In OsmAnd, there is a toggle to allow access/navigation on restricted/private/barrier roads.

Is there a way to do this on Locus Map 4.1.1 ? If not, any plans to add this option as user selectable ?

I've tried LoRouter, Graphopper, BRouter (even modifying profiles). None accomplish this in Locus.

BRouter works fine in OsmAnd for restricted access roads.

Hi Paul,

I'm sorry but we are not going to add any switch for ignoring "private barrier" or "gate" tags into the app. I understand your point but we cannot afford this step as we suppose it could have more wrong consequences than the benefit. Thanks for understanding.


I have the same problem, but not with 'Private Barrier', but with 'seasonal tourist track closure'. I wanted to know the elevation and length of the track I did a year ago, but I can not record it as locus will not route me through the track as is it seasonaly closed at the moment and will be opened during the summer. I understand the concern, but it would be much better to record the track with a disclaimer that it is currently closed, rather then not allowing it at all.
