I will add some more points to that wiki page if I can name some special points (good or bad) that are related to the processing of OSM features in this app.
So if you find any point that is worth discussing here, let us know.
PS: I am NOT related to the mentioned company in order to do any advertising here for this app!
But I would like to do a competition with other offline OSM apps like Osmand, MapFactor Navigator free, Navit, ZANavi and others.
First impression is OK. What surprises me are the mode options. I can choose foot, car and helicopter. I’m a cyclist. You know what option I hoped for
So at this time no Osmand killer yet but you never know what the future brings.
On 21.09.2015 we had a major update of be-on-road:
on Android it needs three more permissions as app,
then map file size is heavily reduced … good job,
but you need a full new download of each map.
Further it seems that we have a new styled user interface,
and also the map drawing engine looks like newer and faster …
Also see the list of changed features on play.google.com or other software sources.
Anything watched as a regression by you?
OK, first bad news so far:
offline map files are no more stored on external SD card or similar memory, but on the internal device memory.
And there seems to be NO setting about the location of those offline map files … or yes?
There is an FAQ section on http://www.beonroad.com where you can find a hint about moving the be-on-road folder from internal memory to an sd card memory manually by cut&paste (!)
Not tried so far … anyone with success? What copy target exactly on Android 4.4 ???
you can become a beta tester for android app via play-store program link … see above mentioned website.
If I read the comments on Google Play, the update is making everything worse? It crashes more, house numbers disappeares, inability to search for street names, maps cannot be stored on sd-card but only on main memory (which is for older models way to small for the maps), menu are less user friendly, does not work on Android 2.2, etc, etc… Almost everybody there shouts: roll back the update!
A smaller map size is nice, if that means that it’s better compressed. If I read the comments, however, it just means they throw a lot of useful information (like street names and housenumbers) away.
So before you update, be advised to read the comments and decide for yourself if you really want to.
I also read about this hint. But which folders exactly need to be moved? …/obb/cz.aponia.bor3 or /data/app/cz.aponia.bor3-1 or both or others? I’m using BoR (latest version) on Android and do not have enough internal memory left for downloading the relevant map!
Do not have any clue which excat folders to move.
Does anybody here by chance know and can tell me the applicable ones?
