I downloaded and extracted a section of EV15. This gave me a file called EV15-4.map
Then I downloaded and installed Orux.
I can’t open the file. Where should it sit in the Orux directory? I have tried several places, but it didn’t work.June 5, 2015 at 14:16 #4989
Update. I discovered about clicking + rather than Download (what is the Download button for?) and I can see a very detailed map in Orux.
But no waypoints or route are showing. Now what?June 5, 2015 at 14:57 #4990

there’s a video.
Please follow the instructions to the end.
If there are still questions left don’t hesitate to ask further.
I strongly recommend to use the quick installation, at least for the themes (styles)

Yes, indeed.Thanks.March 12, 2016 at 23:28 #8688
I am using OpenAndroMaps on the iPhone with VectorialMap. All good, all going looking great. I also use Elevate3_L – also (sort-of) looking good
Now, when I say “sort-of” – I should clarify: I am using the maps mostly for cycling (on road touring). The maps looks good – but it means that the “cycling” MapStyle would be my first choice.
Having said that, VectorialMap unfortunately does not let me choose MapStyles – which then would seem that the default style is “Hiking”. Right?
Bottom line: here’s the question: How can I “hard-wire” the map style default to be “cycling”?
I have tried to modify the elevate.xml file – changing the <stylemenu> attribute “defaultvalue” to “defaultvalue=elv-cycling” — without a great visible difference. Is that all that would be required?
Thanks for your help,

Normally changing the default value for a map style would suffice for selecting automatically at the start a different one.
I don’t know if the app has cached something and needs to clear it too.March 13, 2016 at 09:25 #8694
Are you sure the app works with an Elevate 3 theme? Those are for mapsforge 0.5+, I haven’t heard before of an IOS conversion for that. Maybe the internal theme of vectorial map is displayed.
If you can’t select maps styles it’s general a better idea to use Elevate 2, cycling is a separate theme file there.March 13, 2016 at 09:42 #8696
No – not sure at all. All I can report is that I can see Elevate_L in the list of themes, I can select it, it displays differently from any of the others (e.g. andro… and/or Elevelo) – so, I simply assumed that at least some degree of “working” was the case…
That said, when I asked the developer of VectorialMap (w.r.t. to choosing a “Map Style”) that his app wasn’t implemented to work with v4 of the mapsforge rendering theme(s).
So, you might very well be correct – plus being a newcomer to OpenAndroMaps and your themes – I could not conclusively identify the changes from Elevate v2 to Elevate v3.
I might try Elevate 2 – see what I think. The worst case is still pretty good – as I quite like what I currently see I just thought there might be yet something better to be had
I’ll report back… thanks for the help.
