I almost forgot about my own question, meanwhile I found perfectly working solution -- simply converting KML into GPX with GPSBabel: http://www.gpsbabel.org/ It is open source, which is great plus for me.

As of 28/03/2013 the difference is that with the free version is limited to a total of 10 downloads (maps, voice packages, etc) and does not support offline Wikipedia content. I know because I tried the free version and then buyed the plus one to be able to download entire european countries. Also I think is a really good application for 7 euros.

In OsmAnd: Open the navigation drawer (swipe from left or bottom left button) “Configure screen” (Gear icon) “Right panel” should have a line for “Speed”, tick that. The speed will be shown, somewhat small, in the top right list. I think standard is to show only the number of satellites, but there are a few items that can be shown there. Eta: I also set “...

As of today (24/03/2016), OsmAnd has 3 versions publicly available. This is possible because OsmAnd is GPL software, and therefore can be freely compiled and distributed. 1: Developers' free version, crippled to 10 downloads and no Wikipedia capability. 2: Developers' paid version, uncrippled. 3: F-Droid version, uncrippled but has slower updates than ...

There exist 3 Versions of Osmand The Market free Version: full featured The Market Plus version: full featured, used as a way to donate to the developers as incentive to keep on improving. The F-Droid Version: A source compiled free software version by fdroid with almost no changes to the normal version. Not so frequent app updates. The maps are updated ...

Just a guess, but worth trying: I did the same with Locus Maps. I created a KML, which imported fine, and could be used as layer there (Locus even supports KMZ containing images and more, so you could use that for a "self-made travel guide"). The article Using KML Files on the same site suggests at least the KML part should work with OsmAnd as well, so I ...

Use several different apps: MapsWithMe is awesome for viewing OpenStreetMap offline. You can download whole countries, and see them in a very fluid interface. OSMTracker is a good basic GPS tracing app, with buttons for taking quick notes of various kinds (do the actual OpenStreetMap editing later when you get home). Vespucci is a more full-featured ...

You could use an "overlay" like e.g. Ulysse Speedometer, Map Speedometer, GPS HUD Speedometer, DigiHUD Speedometer, or Navigation Speedometer: DigiHUD and Ulysse as map overlays (source: Google Play; click images for larger variants) Though above screenshots are not from OsmAnd, the overlays work the same there :)

Simply go to OsmAnd settings, General settings (to configure common settings for the application) Under Miscellaneous, Tap Data storage folder, there is a pop-up info to ask where you want to store your Maps data. That's it.

To activate native rendering go into Settings/OsmAnd development/Use native rendering (Use C++ rendering instead of Java) Edit: I've added a screenshot from OsmAnd+ 1.9.2g

I don't know how much the installed size of the app is. But considering how the install process works, the explanation might be easy: the .apk is downloaded to /data/local (internal storage) for installation, it might require some unpacking, with temporary files again being created on internal storage only after that, the app will be stored to its final ...

1) Copy the .obf file to your OsmAnd folder, for instance /sdcard/osmand. 2) In OsmAnd, enable the "POI > Any" layer. 3) Sometimes it does not work immediately, in such case restart your phone (there might be faster methods but at least restarting works)

I ended up doing this: Transform the data from .CSV to .OSM Download and run OsmAndMapCreator In OsmAndMapCreator, let only "Build POI index" checked, then click File > Build .obf from osm file... Select the .osm file Distribute the resulting .OBF file. Users can easily use it with OsmAnd.

PicoTTS (the integrated speech synthesis tool) has been removed from LineageOS 16 due to the lack of development. I’ve looked for an alternative, but sadly couldn’t find anything on par with PicoTTS, so I eventually resorted to installing GoogleTTS, which I must say does a pretty good job.

I had the same problem (I think) with the play store Osmand 3.5.5 and android 8.1. Here's what I did: wait for Osmand 3.6 to be released. start a new route go to options -> Navigation settings tap on "voice prompts" even though it is already "on". Tap on the text not the switch! You can see a bunch of options now such as "voice guidance" which maybe ...

There is no difference, except that region maps are based on administrative divisions Source Geographic Regions Data on the download server is organised by region. The /openstreetmap directory contains files that have a whole continent's data in them, and for some continents there are subdirectories in which you find individual files for various countries. ...

Selecting "Storage 2" or other pre-definded storage-names concerning the SD-card does NOT help, if Android or whoever insists of the real name of the SD-Card (which may be e.g. "22E-23D..." and not simply "extSDcard" or "storage 2"). You can get this name of your SD, if you look in the properties e.g. of a jpg-file which is stored on your SD-Card. If you ...

It still remains a mystery to me where the black arrows are hiding but I found a way to address the two other requirements. First I went through a renderers primer which prepared me nicely for the task at hand. Once completed the solution turned out to be quite simple, albeit a bit hackish. I also made the fat purple route a little slimmer. For completeness,...

To view OBFs that I didn't download through OsmAnd, I first had to change the directory where its data is stored to one where I can push stuff (non-rooted phone). For that, I first went to Settings > General settings > [Miscellaneous] Data storage folder and switched it to "Manually specified...". I decided it would be /storage/emulated/0/osmand as this is ...

As you have ADB available to use, here's one proposed way: Make a backup of your current installation (app and data): adb backup -f osmand.ab -apk net.osmand.plus Same, data only adb backup -f osmand-data.ab -noapk net.osmand.plus Uninstall the app (.apk) while keeping its data: adb uninstall -k net.osmand.plus Install the new version from play If ...

OsmAnd 2.4.7 doesn't have "OsmAnd development" under Settings, but Settings / General / Safe mode (Java rather than native code) is off by default. Rendering is still slower than other OSM-based apps though. Edit: the OpenGL flag on this version is under Plugins / OsmAnd Development / Settings / Use OpenGL Rendering. Still doesn't seem to help much though ...

In OsmAnd 3.0 the wikivoyage database is accessible for downloads same as wikipedia. Each article consists of 2 parts: html article itself and GPX information to be displayed on the map

(Update: The data is now available as .gpx at https://github.com/baturin/wikivoyage-listings) 1) Download the latest .obf file at https://sourceforge.net/projects/wikivoyage/files/Listings-as-OBF/ 2) Using any file management app, move the .obf file to the root of your OsmAnd folder, probably /sdcard/osmand/. 3) Start OsmAnd, and enable the "POI > Any" ...

Since osmand is about offline maps, I'd like to provide an "offline" solution as well. Basically, you want to convert the kml file to gpx format, and make the gpx file available to osmand. You can use gpsbabel to convert the kml file to gpx, which is free/open-source, and is available for most platforms, and is probably in the main repository of your ...

I use GMap2GPX. It loads some JavaScript into the running tab to do all the work. It's fairly easy to use, just follow the instructions on the site. Use "extract full" to generate a reasonably accurate .gpx file (the basic file just has turn-by-turn instructions and little data besides). Note: Only use it in an incognito instance for added privacy. You ...

Try using JOSM and OpenData plugin. To install it just go to preferences(F12)->plugins->search "opendata" and install. After importing you can (as far as I know) save it as *.osm, and then use OsmandMapCreator
