Adding offline map - defined path is not allowed

Voldik shared this problem 4 years ago
Solved

Hi,


I'm trying to add downloaded external offline map to Locus but I'm not successful. I have placed *.map file to folder /sdcard/Locus/maps and when I'm tyring to add it to Locus, it results into an error "Defined path is not allowed" (CZE: Definovaná cesta není povolena).


What am I doing wrong? Thank you in advance.


Device: LG Nexus 5X with the latest Android 7.1

No external SD card, permission for read/write is granted.

Good day Voldik,

if defined path is base Locus Map directory (which looks so), then all maps placed into "maps" directory should be added automatically! Locus add them when you restart it or you may force reload list of maps in map manager > top toolbar > Refresh list.


If downloaded maps are "vector maps" (like these from OpenAndroMaps), they needs to be added into Locus/mapsVector.


Does it help?

Zdravím Josefe,

předně prosím , pro odlišné problémy a zvlášť v jiném jazyku (přestože Voldík je krajan), vytvořte nový topic. Základní pravidlo > jeden problém/nápad = jeden topic, děkuji.


Nicméně když už jsme tady, tak k problému ... zkuste to trošku více popsat. Možná by pomohl topic který máme v manuálu vůbec kolem Locusu Map & SD karta: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=cz:manual:faq:use_sdcard_on_kitkat

I also had a problem in adding my .kmz files to Locus Map, even I copied them to "mapItems", "mapVector", "maps", "mapOnline", Locus Map keep showing me "defined path is not allowed"


What should I do?

Good day Ken Kum,

mentioned paths are not allowed because all of them are handled automatically! So when you put your kmz files somewhere into "mapItems" directory, they automatically appear in Locus > menu > (more) > Map items" feature.
