Don't forget to download the contours and shading tile files to make this work. Got the paid version of Osmand and everything works smoothly now. Finally, my favorite fishing lake hike location shows up with contours and shading on my Tracfone LG L41C. Can't wait for the snow to clear so I can track every step of the way. This app is so cool. Kudos to the developers.
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.
The installation is a little tricky but it’s worth persevering. 1. Install the plugin either from here or use the Settings menu in OSMAnd. Once it is installed, exit OSMAnd and restart your device for good measure. 2. Follow the steps below to add the contour and hill shading files:- 1. Press the Menu button with (4 squares) in the lower left corner 2. Now press the Settings button (cog wheel) in the top right corner 3. Select Manage Map Tiles 4. Select All Downloads 5. The top of the screen has a pull down list labelled with Regular Maps. Change this to Contour Lines 6. Select the contours to download. Go back into the downloads and select Hill shade Cover from the pull down list to download hill shade In OSMAND, you can use the menu button to switch between cycling and walking modes and assign different layers to each mode. I’ve added contours and hill shading to cycling and walking modes as I find the extra information useful but I prefer to keep the driving mode screen clearer.
Just OK. Organization is poor. It's all about maps.... why is getting to the map download page buried so far in the menus? Maybe the price will be worth it off I do more traveling in retirement. Right now I'm not impressed.
Pretty good but difficult to see lines OK this is a royal pain to install. Once installed make sure you fully kill the osm process then restart the app. You can then download the contours. Unfortunately the colours chosen for contours is the same as other items on the map so on villages and towns they simply vanish. On the upside it's cheap and the files are small.
can't enable I have my own compiled OsmAnd and have payed for this plugin, but can not enable it. Trying to download contour data takes me to play store and press on 3 dots in plugin does not react. Is there some limitation in using this plugin with self compiled app? Is it working at all?
* Make plugin available for tablets
* Fixed download functionality
* Contour lines enabled immediately after download
