    EDIT:
    For anyone who comes across this old thread.
    Vectorial is now replaced by “Cartograph 2 Maps” which has many additions and improvements

    Thanks for the Voluntary Style/Rendertheme. It’s good to see colours similar to OS and road numbers.
    FYI, I was able to install it (and the key) directly from those links into the iOS app called Cartograph Maps 2 on my iPhone 8 where it’s working fine on Openandromaps. (Note: there is a free “Lite” version of that app)
    Kind regards, Pat

    The Vectorial maps app I mentioned earlier has been replaced by Cartograph Maps 2.
    The iOS version gives simple in-app downloading of maps and Styles/Renderthemes and has a lot of improved features.
    I think that it’s available for a variety of platforms.
    There is a free “Lite” version.

    VectorialMap has been updated and is now called Cartograph Maps 2 (in the Apple App Store) and is much improved. There is a free “Lite” version.

    This is all I see in the area you describe. On an iPad and in a more basic app.
    “MST” is shown as the Hillsborough Riverwalk. It looks much the same on Google Earth.
    Changing the zoom makes no difference that I can discern. Neither does swapping through a variety of different styles.
    I have learnt to drill down through a lot of zoom levels when investigating an area. Sometimes things pop up like Easter Eggs :)
    As an old guy who likes hill walking and cycling (and I’m English so “Brown Elfin Knob” made me snigger) I am pretty gob-smacked that such a powerful global mapping system can be free.
    Regards, Pat.

    Thanks, Christian!
    I thought that the Antarctic Ice-Shelf break had headed to Fiji rather quickly!
    Nearby, I found more comments. I don’t know if they are intentional or not. (and a possible misspelling)
    SeaEastOfAustralia.map
    Mantray Dive Shop (probably should be Mantaray Dive Shop which a search can’t find at present)
    (Yasawa Islands)
    As usual, only for your information. Not complaining about your wonderful maps :)

    Are you able to try the Tiramisu-2 Style/ Rendertheme?
    I am using the free “Vectorial Map Lite” app and find that it works best for me.
    I did hack the xml file in the Style’s zip folder to darken the paths and contours (and remove bus stops)
    I doubt that it will be ideal for you but if it works it might give you some ideas.
    Tiramisù, a theme for OpenAndroMaps with Oruxmaps and MapsForge compatible apps
    My hacked (very inexpertly) version is here:

    For me, on VectorialMap Lite app on iOS, Evevate and Tiramisu-2 both work fine.
    Don’t unzip them just send to Vectorial
    So, you can see contours ! and footpaths!
    NOTE: you have probably already realised that you have to download the Openandromaps.org maps in a browser, UNZIP them, and then send them to Vectorial.
    Which is free for unlimited viewing.

    I use VectorialMap Lite which allows the use of Elevate and Tiramisu-2 (not 3) Styles.
    You have to download the Style zip file with included images and xml.
    The VectorialMap Lite app is very simple and free to use for unlimited viewing of Openandromaps.
    Note that the sequence for installing the maps is: Download in a browser from Openandromaps.org; unzip; send to VectorialMap Lite; add Style later within the app.
    (For the Styles, don’t unzip)
    I’m using iOS.
    I’m not very tech savvy but can alter the Tiramisu .xml files somewhat to suit my tastes.
    Some of this may help with OSMAnd or you may like to give Vectorial a try.

    VectorialMap app is available on most platforms. It’s free to view the maps with it but costs £5 on Windows to do stuff with them.

    I’m using VectorialMap Lite on iPhone and iPad. It works well with Openandromaps which are very impressive as they are so compact and very simple to load compared to other free maps. ( and detailed!) However at present you do have to download them in a browser and unzip them before opening the .map file in VectorialMap Lite. I use the Tiramisu 2.0 Style (= rendertheme) obtained from within the app. You can download Mapsforge free maps directly from within the app but they don’t show contours for me. The app is free to download as are the maps (I was even moved to donate!) so you can try them out for free but to use the tracking facility you have to pay £3.99.
    I tried the OsmAnd Maps app which also uses Openandromaps but it did not run smoothly on my iPhone 5s and the map downloading was more complex. Galileo Offline Maps did not show contours.
