Why not also have a web version so you can consult activities and maps on the big screen?

You could use 'scrcpy' ...

Just connect your phone to your PC (via USB or Wifi) and you have everything on your big screen

theres lot of way to mirror android screen, anydesk, windows 10 mirror screen, even using an android emulator like bluestacks.


when there is a syncable version, which is being worked on, bluestacks emulator might be best option, as can then be synced back to android device. Im guessing web version huge amount of work.

Using a phone emulator is completely crap in my opinion.

It is definitely not a consistent solution.

I would need a route planner that leverages the power of a web application and that can ease the process of transferring route/tracks from/to my phone.

It is the only thing that keeps me using other apps.

You can also try: https://www.routeconverter.com/home/en

This free program allows you among many others to display OAM/Locus-maps (.map) and display and edit gpx/kml/kmz .... -pois.

Too bad, it seems unable to import LOCUS- and OpenAndro-POIs.

You can even use BROUTER

Was that sarcasm or is it actually likely to be this year


Now that viewranger has been bought by outdoor active, development has stopped, and a lot of people might leave viewranger for locus, big advantage of viewranger over locus was syncing of tracks/routes/poi and a web editor of tracks, so now is ideal time to release web version.....

Sync ... ah this : https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=666660640589165 (work in progress).

Internally sync is done, now we work on planner ;).

@Alistair you exactly got me!!!

I'm (or I was) a ViewRanger user (and fan) and I'm here exactly for this very reason.

I'm looking to switch to another app and one of the major drawbacks of Locus is the lack of the Web Interface!

v4 looks awesome, cant wait for v4 to reach beta!!!


ive had Locus since 2010, but for a while when I was using a tablet and phone combo, I was also using viewranger

The only advantages of viewranger were the onlline route resources, only POI/tracks/routes , syncing and the AR 3d view of tracks, also the playback of recorded tracks, most of those features ive added as ideas...

viewranger confirmed no new features, as all development will be going to outdoor active, which is a very inferior product. expensive, full of adverts and less features.

Locus is the best outdoor Nav app by far and ive tried loads.

I havent found a good source for downloadable GPX routes, the community part of viewranger was good for that. but with no route organisation, it got so cluttered
