Satellite Images - My question is how do I add Satellite Images to my locus maps Pro on my Android? I saw a video of a guy doing this but his steps were not working for me.

Hi Jimmy,

as Locus Map is built independently on Google API, it is banned from using Google Satellite images. Therefore, we offer aerial maps of only local providers, e.g. IGN in France, Basemap in Austria, USGS in United States, etc. Some countries, unfortunately, are not covered by any satellite maps.

Hi Michal,

if the locus can't use Google Satellite images, what about microsoft earth ?

Google Maps, Bing maps, Yandex... all these have strict license rules that exclude Locus Map from using them legally, sorry.

There is a work-around: https://github.com/mjk912/LocusMapTweak
