Offline OSMAnd sqlite map not found
« on: March 13, 2016, 12:24:02 »
Hello,

I am using Locus Map 3.15.3, on a Moto X Play running Android 6.0.

I configured the storage folders to be on the SD card. In the directory menion.android.locus/files/Locus/mapsVector I created a subdirectory Mapsforge. In that directory I installed downloaded *.map files.
When selecting Maps, Offline tab I can see the Mapsforge directory, and when I click the directory, I see the individual map files.
So far so good.

For hiking I created a map in the OSMAnd sqlite format, using MOBAC (Mobile Atlas Creator). I created another subdirectory OSMAnd under mapsVector and copied the *.sqlitedb file created by MOBAC into that directory.
When I restart Locus Map the app reports that changes have been found in the maps folders. I then select the Locus folder on the SD card.
But when I select Maps, Offline tab I only see the Mapsforge directory. The OSMAnd directory is invisible.

How can I use the OSMAnd sqlite map in Locus Map?

Good day gewe,

hope I never wrote somewhere that OSMAnd maps are working under Locus. Where you get this information? Because it is not correct, they don't.
Ideas, wishes, problems
Advanced topics, public discussion, sharing of knowledges, testing beta versions: you're here!

Hello,

Thank you for your ultra fast reply.  :D

Sorry, my mistake. Not all sqlites are the same...

I created an OruxMaps sqlite map. I copied the .db file into mapsVector, but that also isn't shown.

Of course, it's a raster map.

In another thread I found that I have to copy the sqlite file and the xml as well.

Thanks, it's working now.
