Navigate To...


Standard voice navigation as you know it from your car or other applications.

1. Select Target

Firstly, you have to tell Locus where you want to go.

Directly on map

The simplest and fastest (and the least accurate) way.

  1. hold your finger on the place on map you want to be navigated to
  2. a popup with address emerges, tap “>” and select Navigate to

Other location options

When you need accurate or special definition of your target location, use location selector:

  1. tap Menu > More functions > Navigate to
  2. select method of defining target of your route:


Point from Data manager

Use e.g. in case you want to navigate to some geocache from your database:

  1. select the point from Point manager
  2. tap it to display the point detail screen
  3. tap button from the bottom panel and select Navigate to

Point on map

Similar to the first method but now you select directly some point of interest:

  1. tap a point of interest displayed on the map (a geocache or some LoMap POI)
  2. tap “>” on the point label and select Navigate to

Own navigation target for repeated use

  1. start Navigate to and tap:
  2. select own location in the next menu:
  3. set the icon and name of the location (home, work, grandma…) and tap to select method of defining the target:
  4. define your target by showing it on the map, address etc.:
  5. confirm. Your navigation destination appears among the location selecting methods:

When you start navigation next time, just select the target from the grid.

Starting point of your route can be re-defined too, just tap next to it and select location method.

2. Add Via Points

You can insert up to three places you do not want to miss on your route:

  1. tap in the topbar
  2. select via point location definition (map center, GPS, address…)
  3. via points display between start and final points of your navigation route
  4. you can change order of the via points as well as starting and final points by dragging them up or down on the left side
  5. you can change names, location of the via points (tap ) or remove them by tapping “x”.

If you need more sophistically planned route, use Locus Route Planner!

3. Select Activity or Means of Transport
