    Good afternoon,
    not being an it expert but user: I use the andromaps on my Bike computer, the Hammerhead Karoo2. Also installed the map render theme from elevate and the elevate_res map for icons and so.
    But, i can’t choose for MTB/Cycling/Hiking options in the Hammerhead. Is there a possibility tyo combine those in 1 XML file? i think i miss features now, or some things show in a zoomlevel that is not practical for me??

    Glad to hear from you?

    I can’t help with your question, but maybe you can help me? Are you using the Karoo app? I installed Locus, but I can’t select the theme?

    Hi @bikenfool and @JPGreenstreet,
    i heard from you now the fist time about that Hammerhead Karoo 2. Although the price seems a bit high to me, i find it interesting.
    From what i understand, it is based on Android 8, comes with it’s own “Karoo Apps”. I assume the “Karoo App” is simply not able to handle these Mapsforge v4 Maps& Themes?
    And when you install another app, for which you have the *.apk”, you use platform-tools/adb. Is that correct?

    @matthias correct. You are able to sideload with apkpure for example. People use spotify, zwift, others osmand. I use the andromaps because there is more detail, surely for MTB and surface of roads.

    I use adb on a linux computer to load the app to Karoo. The app that comes with Karoo lacks many feature that I want (and has many features that I don’t need). I’ve been using Locus & openandromaps for years so I thought I’d try that. I’ll have to try some different apps.
    They use opencyclemaps for there native app maps. I don’t know if that’s the same format as openandromaps.

    @bikenfool, if i had a Karoo2, I would try OruxMaps 7.4.24 together with OpenAndroMaps

    If an app doesn’t support mapsforge mapstyle menus, there are two possibilities without using a different app:

    – Use Elevate 2, there are separate files for each mapstyle; but this has been deprecated 3 years ago and might not work well with current maps.

    – Change the default values in the stylemenu section at the beginning of the xml file with a text editor; this needs some understanding of xml, but this is relatively simple:
    <stylemenu id="elv-menu" defaultvalue="elv-hiking" defaultlang="en"> to a different value like elv-mtb, elv-city or elv-cycling; for the options change the layer tags, switch them on/off with enabled=”true”/”false”, (h/c/b/m stands for hiking, city, bicycle, mtb). This only works if the app respects the default values; there are apps which don’t an all mapstyles and option are enabled, rendering the theme pretty useless.
