Direct tile access in Mapquest

Not a Problem

I can't believe that this hasn't yet been discussed.

Basically Mapquest is no longer available in Locus until, I guess, the developers get a subscription plan.


I cannot find any other map service equally good (for quality and downloadability) as mapquest.


And I just bought Locus PRO. And I'm just leaving for my vacations... ouch!

Hello Stephen,

MapQuest changed their terms of use yesterday. We work on it but it seems that MapQuest map will be removed from Locus Map application.

Please use other maps, for example OSM Regional - Hike and Bike. Or the best solution is to download LoMaps from Locus Store

Thank you for understanding

Many thanks for the quick repky. I have switched to the OSM Regional - Hike and Bike. All is now good. I will investigate LoMaps too.

Why not use vector maps ? LoMaps, OpenAndroMaps, ... and pick the theme you like most.

Hello Dario,

I'm sorry for troubles but we were also very surprised by changes on MapQuest site. Based on that we had to remove mapquest maps from Locus Map app. We believe that there are other maps that can substitute the mapquest. You can you download mentioned LoMaps or any other Online map. We also quickly add new map source OSM - Outdoor.

Thank you for understanding

Best regards

Why not use vector maps? Because I didn't know they existed!!


Actually I always thought that the online cache was great, but I don't mind trying vector.

Thanks for the suggested alternatives. I'm now downloading some OpenAndroMaps and eventually I'll fall back to LoMaps.
