-When you need routing service during **route planning** or **navigation from point to point**, Locus will navigate you **without internet connection**.+<WRAP center round tip>

 Although BRouter user interface looks quite simple, the app offers quite a lot of various settings, creating custom navigation profiles etc. A rich source of info and tips is this [[https://github.com/poutnikl/Brouter-profiles/wiki|wiki-blog >>]]. BRouter provides also a [[http://brouter.de/brouter-web/|web app]], enabling route planning on a big PC screen and consequent export to GPX file and then to Locus Map. Although BRouter user interface looks quite simple, the app offers quite a lot of various settings, creating custom navigation profiles etc. A rich source of info and tips is this [[https://github.com/poutnikl/Brouter-profiles/wiki|wiki-blog >>]].

-An alternative to BRouter is routing software **[[https://graphhopper.com/|GraphHopper]]**.  An unofficial Locus GrapHopper add-on is still in development but is free to use.
