Use custom offline map folder

kaktus67 10 months ago updated by GCDroid Support 10 months ago 3

I use several different apps on my smartphone with the same set of mapsforge maps e.g.

  • Locus
  • Orux
  • WhereYouGo
  • ...

Normally I download the maps from OpenAndroMaps on my PC an copy it on my phone.

The maps are stored in one location. On my phone in the locus/mapsvector folder.


In the apps mentioned above I can set the offline maps path to my custom folder, et voila, I use the same mapfiles and save space on my phone. I addition, I have to update the maps online once and not for each app.


Would be nice if it would be possible to select own path for offline maps.

There would be a simple solution for you.... All offline maps will be stored in GCDroid/maps folder and you have the other apps point to that :-)

simple but not flexible, and I would call it "workaround" and not a "solution" ;-)
