I have used elevate themes hike and bike OAM in Spain France and UK on my Samsung S5 with bike pro app.
I have just returned from an 8 week trip to Andalucia. Most of our cycling and walking trips were present on the maps but a few good ones that I have a track of were not. One was present but the path did not fit well with the path on the ground. I would like to learn to add these routes to the maps.
Can I down load the maps to a desktop pc and edit on that? I hope to ask questions whenever I am stuck?

You can certainly use the vector maps in desktop.
There is Atlas a Java application for opening maps and render themes.
About your 2nd question – as one of Mapsforge developers – I’m afraid we created vector map format as a precompiled binary file that cannot be directly edited after it has been built.February 21, 2016 at 17:37 #8359
Actually the answer is far more positive.
You can edit OpenStreetMaps online at http://www.openstreetmap.org — it’s a relatively painless process once you get started. I frequently make minor edits after a trip. There is help at http://www.openstreetmap.org/help
OAM maps are produced every month or so from the data that volunteers have put into OSM maps, so do your edits, sit back a few weeks, and download the enhanced map from OAM.February 22, 2016 at 00:04 #8366
just downloaded Atlas 1.2.2, and some new mapsforge files.
I do not see anything but state and city names, and some public transport icons …
Any hint pls ?
TXs and cheers

Map creation in Mapsforge server had recently some issues.
It would take a while until the maps will be updated.
Additionally you can try the fine OpenAndroMaps maps here.February 22, 2016 at 15:10 #8373
I LOVE OAM, no worries. But they are quite huge, so I partly use mapsforge on my smaller device.February 22, 2016 at 16:28 #8375
Thank you I thought there would be some check rather than all and sundry editing the andromap directly. The time delay is fine. My additions and changes are to enhance the map for others. I doubt I will be back in Andalucia for a year.
