Title: How Can I Download This OSM Map?
Post by: phoneguy100 on January 14, 2012, 22:04:32
Hi all.

I have the vector download addon for Locus but there is a hiking and biking map on OSM which shows countryside paths and routes etc.

It can be seen on this site....  http://hikebikemap.de/ (http://hikebikemap.de/)

Does anyone know of a way I can download the 'hike and bike map' for Great Britain/England please as I prefer it over the one that Locus downloads with the vector plugin.

MANY thanks.

vector download addon is for offlinemaps.
the great hike&bike maps are onlinemaps.

it wont allow it and there is no way to put in the website address to get Locus to look at it.

show the hike&bike map
(maybe first have to install https://market.android.com/details?id=c ... usmaptweak (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.mjk.locusmaptweak))
then u can select download in the mapmanager.

many thanks gynta.
I have that plugin already installed.
The problem is... how do I get Locus to look at the link for hike&bike I provided?
I tried to download the 'hiking' map that is listed in Locus but a error came up telling me the map hoster will not allow downloads.
As for that hike&bike map - I have no idea how to even view it in Locus :-(

that is in the maps section under the online tab, the map is 'OSM - regional openhikingmap' but the download function will not allow downloading for offline use which is why I want to somehow grab that bike&hike OSM map.

How?
I only have the openhiking map in Locus and have no idea how to get that bike&hike map into Locus.
All I know is that the bike&hike map is a URL on my PC - It does not show in Locus and I have no idea how to get it to show like you have,
Thanks for all your help but I am stuck now.  lol

Your Version of Locus is?
Is the map in the setting enabled?
settings/map/online maps

excellent - thanks gynta....

I have Locus Pro and its the up to date version. 1.15.5

I feel daft now - I didnt realise I had to tick box it in the settings - cheers  :D

So, I can zoom out and select an area to download that is 10 tiles big per day.  I do that over the space of a week and I should be able to store that map for offline use?  Am I right?

Yeah, I never know where I will be hiking.  I have a 350mb Vector map of the whole of England and although the bike&hike does not seem to be a vector I would still like it for England.

I will take a look at MobAC1.8 - many thanks for that.

As for the version number - 1.15.5 seems to be the most recent Pro in the Android Market for me.

You have been a great help and I appreciate it greatly.

Many thanks.

Version numbers don't always show up correctly in the market.

Please cross-check hitting:
-> menu
-> locus
-> info about the app

The great hike&bike maps are onlinemaps i think.
