Locus Map does not contain its own service for calculating routes. Therefore, Route planner and Navigate to features cooperate with third party routing engines - navigation data sources. Each source has specific properties, some is functional online-only, some works offline (after downloading offline navigation data):

Offline routing engine BRouter offers much more sophisticated profile settings than any other services. Not only you can add more conditions relevant to various means of transport,

BRouter provides also an alternative route planning methods engaging "via" and "nogo" points >>
This option is available to Locus Map Pro users only. Navigation route is recalculated automatically if the deviation from the former route is greater than the parameter distance for recalculation. Needs internet connection in case an online routing service is selected (e.g. GraphHopper Online or YOURS). For offline routing it is necessary to additionally download and install BRouter co-app and download offline routing data. If you do not follow the recalculated route, Locus recalculates again after 30 seconds. There are 3 options:
Settings for manual recalculation that can be triggered from navigation panel.
Check this option if you want Locus Map to warn you when you accidentally leave your route. Set the alert distance, alert repetition and type of sound (beep, voice…):
Keep in mind that this feature may come into conflict with your intentions e.g. when making unwanted detour and part of the original route is not accessible - it will keep navigating you to the nearest missed routepoint. If you want to skip a routepoint, switch it manually to the next nearest point in the Navigation control menu.
This feature does not work when Auto-recalculation with Point priority is ON.
Sets the color of navigation line.
Defines width of the route line in pixels.
