Thanks, definitely there's a need for an alternative to OruxMaps, which has terrible UI (most functions as well though) .

Locus is not just an alternative

Current support of My Maps is almost unique since My Maps editor from Google not work almost on all phones.
Also ability to directly download map (for example along defined path) into shared online cache or into separate file, wide range of map providers, etc. I have also prepared My Tracks integration directly into app but I'm waiting for new version of My Tracks on market.

Okay, this is really nice I love the UI..
The only thing I'm missing a bit is the german only "hike & bike"-mapsource (http://hikebikemap.de//http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/U...e_%26_Bike_Map).
