This Manual cover the two major players on the App-Market:
- - Locus
- - Oruxmaps
For all other apps please refer to the manual of your mapping app.
Min. requirements: An Android mapping app with built in support for the mapsforge vector library V3.0 and alternative render themes and a serious amount of free memory.
The cyclemaps are testet with Locus and Oruxmaps on a Sony Xperia Active.
Install render theme + mapfiles:
For Locus: (this is an enhanced theme with some aditional pois like cycle shops etc..)
- Download the andromaps_hc.zip from the downloads page and uncompress it.
- copy the files to mnt/sdcard/Locus/mapsVector/_themes/
If you’v done this right the structure should be:
- mnt/sdcard/Locus/mapsVector/_themes/andromaps_hc/ (containing andromaps_hc.xml)
Now download the Maps you need, copy it to
- mnt/sdcard/Locus/mapsVector/ (or to a further subdir if you want to organize your maps)
and switch to the andromaps_hc theme in the Locus-menu.
All downloads now include the basic andromaps_hc theme for Oruxmaps
Just copy both files included in the zip-file to the map-folder of Oruxmaps and you are done
For all other apps supporting vector maps:
Use the andromaps_orux.map.xml for Oruxmaps, it contains only the symbols+patternset of the original render-theme provided by the Mapsforge group.
So any app that supports the full capabilitys incl. custom themes (styles) of the Mapsforge-library V3 should be able to display the cycle maps.
