Correction: no WiFi but a mobile internet access

Did you explicitly configured LocusMap to use the offline Brouter as the default navigation routing service ? As it looks like if you had set some online service instead, e.g. Mapquest, and there is some connection error ( either general connection problems, either specific server problems, usually temporary )

Attached is my settings. Or is there another one?I am using Huawei p10 plus with external sd card, where my Locus maps reside. I tried to install BRouter to the sd card as well, but it was only copied to internal storage....

Until there are downloaded RD5 routing data( can be placed on SD card) and Brouter is properly configured ( Readme and Kitkat survival guide ), it will not be really used.

Thanks for the fast answerI have rd5 files downloaded (all middle Europe - 9 files) so my area is definitely covered. 

Complete BRouter folder are now both on my internal and external storage. 

I am experienced computer user but not a programmer. The linked file seems to be a bit complicated. Am I supposed to do some changes to storageconfig.txt file? Would need some simple step by step guidance on how to set BRouter properly.

There is nothing to be programmed. Those config tweaks are just to assure BRouter will not have read/write local data problems in case it does have any. Brouter does not go online at all, with exception of the explicit running the BRouter download manager for RD5 files. ( I prefer script downloding and wifi syncing to device ).


But Locus may try to go online on its own. Try for testing to switch to online service 1 or better several, what happens.

Ok, I have deinstalled and reinstalled BRouter onto the internal storage  IT IS WORKING NOW I'll leave it at that - rd5 files don't take that much memory

Many thanks for all your help

Good day guys,

sorry for a complications I read about here. Developers message has no good explanation mainly because I never expected it may happen. What you see is error message where Locus Map tries to say that it cannot connect to installed BRouter application to request route.

What I wanted to point on, is to what you exactly did: re-install BRouter app, because it looks like it has some problem in registration of it's routing service in Android system. I'm glad to read it helped, perfect .. and Thanks Libor for a help!

Hi,

I've encountered the same problem - T:cannot conect to service. Unfortunately, reinstalling BRouter didn't fix it at all. Have any clue what should I do to in this situation?

Hello. I had the same problem. contact with the support showed that another app on my smartphone with BRouter comes in the way. Which could not be said.

I bought the full version in the hope to fix the problem. negative. After a long trial I found a solution:

Start the BRouter> Select Main Action: BRouter App> Select routing profile ...> Select Action> Server Mode> Choose service ...> Success :-) Then start locus.

Hi, thanks for the advice. The solution works on my device perfectly but... only to the point when I'm colosing the Locus app. After restart I have to repeat the whole procedure again:) Anyway, it's better than nothing :D
