How to make LoMaps display more info like Openandromaps?

When I used Openandromaps with its "Elevate" theme, I could see a lot more features on the map such as shelter (as in attached image). I know these shelters are actually on LoMaps too just that the internal theme doesn't display them, because when I switched to an external map theme i.e. "Elevate LE" by Openandromaps, I could see these shelters but then the paths are missing. So using external theme does not solve the problem either especially that "Elevate LE" theme is a legacy theme that has stopped development since 25/11/2019. So maybe a more comprehensive internal theme should do the job?

I would love to use LoMaps over other sources given that my Locusmap subscription comes with unlimited map download, but the catch with LoMaps is that the update is quite infrequent at least compared to Openandromaps. For example the latest version of LoMaps is 27.03.22 which is already 4 months ago, but Openandromaps has had 2 new releases since then. LoMaps, being a paid service, should not fall so far behind a free service.

Thank you for the coordinates. These shelters are available in the offline LoMaps and are displayed with internal theme. But it's required to enable the Offline LoPoints layer. I guess this layer is disabled...please check it.

Then they just use OAM. What do they mean by: There are paths missing ?

I use OAM with Elevate Theme. But in the background a LoMap is loaded. Only because of the offline addresses.

I mean when I used "Elevate LE" on LoMaps, on that particular area the shelters did show up (which was not shown when using LoMap's own internal theme), but for some strange reasons the path (route) just went missing (as in attached image). I figure there might be some compatibility issues with the legacy Elevate LE Theme but unfortunately newer Elevate Theme does not support LoMaps,

I am also currently using OAM for its more frequent update and better map theme. I am in Malaysia. The problem with OAM Malaysia map is that it is combined with Indonesia map, making it a whopping 2.2 GB download. That takes up quite a lot of storage space unnecessarily not to mention the time taken to perform each update.

Maybe the path does not exist in OpenStreetMap anymore. Maybe someone has deleted it. Look there and also look for the last changes.

LoMap will show it because the map has old data and OAM will not show it because the data is newer.

No, the path is still there, both in the latest OAM and LoMap. Just that in LoMap it will only show up when the internal theme is used but not when Elevate theme is used. But like I said, if I used the internal theme then I won't see the shelters. Not sure if I have expressed myself clearly. Anyway, what I was trying to say is that hopefully LoMap can come with a more comprehensive map theme that is able to display map features with more details as I believe the problem is not with the LoMap but with the internal theme.

Thank you for the topic. The shelters should be available in the LoMaps maps would you please send me the GPS coordinates of mentioned area. I'll check it.

Then just use the OAM map and the OAM theme.

LoMap with OAM theme is not good.

Thanks Petr, this solves it :)

I must have turned this feature off at some point of using OAM and totally forgotten about it.
