Brouter doesn't calculate route

AntMadeira shared this problem 3 months ago
Solved

Hi there.

In the last few months, I'm having problems calculating routes with Brouter.

I installed the latest Brouter version on Android, downloaded the areas I use to navigate, but when I press a place in the map and choose to navigate to that point, Locus shows a message on the top center of the screen with "Processing..." and nothing happens.

I have to switch to GraphHooper to be able to get the route.

Mind you that the sattelite icon is green, which means I have GPS fixed and available.

Any help?

Hello,

we have tested it and it looks like everything works correctly here.

Please, try to uninstall BRouter and delete all the data from it. Then reinstall and download routing data again.

Let me know if it helps.

Regards,

Thanks, Zdeněk.

That worked!


Why did that happen? Brouter needed update or was it something else?

Hello,

I am glad it works.

Maybe some part of the data was corrupted.

Have a nice day.

I just want to inform that I found the problem with Brouter. If the app isn't running in the device, Locus is unable to use it to calculate the route. I have to open Brouter app and then make the route calculation. Is this a known problem or is just my device?

Hello,

please can you describe your exact procedure in more detail?

I can't replicate this issue and everything works as it should for me.

Thank you.

The procedure is very straightforward. If Brouter app is terminated in the device, Locus cannot open it when calculating a route and shows the message "Processing..." on the top centre of the screen.

If I open the app outside Locus and then try to calculate a route, Locus works as expected.

Hello,

I am sorry, but we cant simulate this issue. Everything works as it should even if I restart the phone and immediately start the Locus.

Do you have all permissions to both apps granted?

I don't know what to say to help...


Brouter and Locus have all its permissions allowed (Brouter with storage and Locus with storage, location and microphone) but when I terminate Brouter app (with KillApps app or forcing it to stop in Android configurations) Locus is unable to initiate Brouter app and calculate route.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but this worked fine for years. It's only a problem since a few months ago.
