    OpenAndroMaps maps are using the Mapsforge vector map binary file format (.map is just the extension).

    Maybe you ask the app author for the supported formats?

    I had already asked, they replied that the work ahead was enormous, having to create from 0 libraries in c++
    Here the reply:

    If it is simple, you can repack also in .map , otherwise, thanks anyway, I’ll continue to use your maps only in oruxmaps
    ciao, neobios

    The App seems to use Garmin .img files, not .map.
    It’s not possible to convert .map to .img, they have to be created from scratch and designed in the same fashion.
    There are already other providers of free .img maps based on OSM. They may not contain the same details and look different, but in the end it’s based on the same data.

    BTW, it’s possible to use OAM maps with other PC apps, see the FAQ:

    Easiest would be Atlas.

    You could also convert OAM maps to a raster map format that QmapShack with MOBAC:

    But you loose on the fly customization with map styles.

    To revive an old topic, there is a way to use the OpenAndromaps on QmapShack software.

    Document https://github.com/Maproom/qmapshack/wiki/DocBasicsMapDem#mapsforge-maps shows how to set up a local Mapsforge tile server and to make Mapsforge maps and in particular OpenAndroMaps available in QMapShack.

    Planning a track with QMapShack and OpenAndroMaps Germany

    A tip:
    I’ve been using for several months now
    https://www.bluestacks.com/

    This is per se an Android_Emulator for game freaks, but in the latest version it works great with Playstore, GPS simulation, Intel virtualization (4 cores no problem)
    ORUX and Locus run perfectly !!
    Also Totalcommander with FTP/GDrive/Dropbox Plugin

    Just give it a try and don’t mind the freaky website.

    LG, Christian
