Difficult to display the contour lines The instructions in the app for obtaining them are no longer current.
Spotty Plugin The original app (OSMAND+) is great and as good a front end for this open source map base as anybody could want, but the contour lines plugin is at best, spotty and only intermitantly usable. Hopefully futher user feedback and develpment will improve it. I'm giving it a 3 for potential not performance.
This is not working for me Ive paid for and downloaded the contour lines plug in, selected 'enable' of the contour lines plug in in settings and ticked the box for 'hillshade layer' in the configure map option. Nothing nada. Whats happening please?
It works but in the product's description should mention that this is not a feature that "displays" your charts in a different way to show contour lines / relief, but it depends on different chart files you have to download in addition to have downloaded the Contour Line feature and enable it. This increases even more the memory use on your phone: 1) the extra plugin, 2) again all your charts have to be downloaded but now as contour lines instead of the regular vectorial maps that you may have already downloaded. It works but the installation process is not presented properly in advance and its use requests do download a lot more stuff. Osmand produces nice apps but together with all these extra adds on, more and more downloads, the size in my phone as reached almost 2GB by now. I guess is what we get by using off line features...
Mandatory extension Many thanks! This is mandatory extension to flat osmand maps for hikers, bikers, mountaineers... Idea is great but implementation not completed. Please take into account following issues: * hillshade layer tiles don't match neighbour tiles seamlessly * would be nice to have user control of hillshade layer opacity * contour lines don't match next tile seamlessly * contour lines density needs to be dependent on zoom * high precipices should be somehow represented on contour layer
Best offline navigation Does what it says. Fantastic to see Free Software for this task. Occasionally some odd routing (it didn't know I could drive over a swing bridge, probably an OSM bug).
* Make plugin available for tablets
* Fixed download functionality
* Contour lines enabled immediately after download
* Added Hillshade data
