Title: Permanent Overlays linked to maps
Post by: sonstwer on May 07, 2015, 19:04:58
Hi menion,

it would like to suggest that it should be possible to link an overlay to map. For example I use overlays with SRTM data. I have the SRTM "map" for each vector map. It would be nice to create a permanent link between them that I do not need to select the other overlay if I change maps.

Cheers
Adrian

But it´s already implemented. You can use hill shading with every map. Use "quick settings"/shading.
You have to download srtm files from Locus.

You can also fill the Locus SRTM directory on the SD card via PC

Good to know., Thanks. Can I download the SRTM files from other locations?
