The panel is ON by default.

Notification of the next turn

Settings of type of alert of approaching direction change - beep, sound or TTS.

"Out of route" notification

Notifies user of leaving the route. Tapping the item displays a dialog to set the alert distance, notification repetition and sound settings. Settings are the same as for Navigation.

Advanced settings

  • Strict route following - depending on the route shape Locus Map automatically selects routepoints that are closer than the pre-set distance. This option switches this automation off and Locus guides along the track strictly from point to point - suitable e.g. for sailing.
  • Frequency of alerts - defines number of alerts of direction changes on the track: low - medium - high
  • Notify on every routepoint - starts continuous notification of accurate following the track. Applies only for tracks without navigation waypoints, e.g. when sailing, flying or sea-kayaking.
