- Orux maps question
Yeah, I spotted that 😕
Three options I think:
– create the offline maps on your computer (Orux’s site explains how to do this – it’s not difficult) and then load them onto your phone
– Use an old version of Oruxmaps (I made a backup of this because I saw that the new version had taken OS maps off) – if anyone needs it, I could upload it somewhere.
– Modify the new map sources file (which is just XML) based on the old version above to include the OS maps again.
I intend to do the last option when I get time. Again, if useful and I get round to it, I can share.Posted 4 years agoB.A.NanaMember
backcountry navigator, OS maps down to 1:25K for £6.99 one off. You can download it for a 3 week trial. You just download the map area(s) you want, on your WiFi at home. If you know you’re going to be in an area with full 3g coverage then there’s no need to download map areas to your phone I suppose.Posted 4 years ago
I used it in the Lakes a few weeks ago and t’was great. downloaded the maps areas I wanted before going and some GPX files of routes off various websites.
I had a good play with it last night and it looks as though the latest version actively blocks OS maps as I could affect the online map options I had by adjusting the xml file (eg adding or removing items) but no matter what, I couldn’t get it to act on the Ordnance SM item in the XML.
So, I can either download using an old version and then upgrade (whihc is easy enough as I have the old version backup on my phone) or download on the computer and transfer to the mobile.
As it goes, I find the OS maps too detailed and prefer the OSM or even google maps (for road).Posted 4 years agochrisinleedsukMember
