Honest is always appreciated!
When I started distribute vector maps, it was more then years ago, first attempt was thanks to Dropbox. Second day after first release, I received notification, that my Dropbox account was stopped because of abnormal usage. During next few months, I tried few web services and everywhere was some problems with ads, limited speed etc.
Now seems that Google Drive allow unlimited bandwidth. This may be solution on one side. On second side, even if you have to buy some credit, per month is downloaded around 1TB of data, so it's more then 30GB per day. And thanks to Amazon hosting service, all is perfectly fast and without any worries, that there will be problems.
OpenAndroMaps is nice work from kech and I appreciate it, because it helps to increase popularity for OSM project and it's very very good. Anyway you have to count that Locus system for distributing vector maps isn't alternative!! As I wrote, I started with it more then year before. Since June, Peter (voldapet) works on improved system for generating as his main work ... so point is, we're not creating alternative, we're creating main source for vector map in Locus
I can write here few pages about this topic, but I don't want, because this topic is about "how maps looks and works" and not about "why they exists". Anyway, it's good that exists alternative for people, that don't want to use Locus system like you and it's absolutely OK for me
. Price for maps in Locus is so low, that I think it should not be problem for anyone who want comfort and easy way to obtain maps. Dot
