Tracks and zoom

Post  dizzystreak on Fri Oct 09, 2009 12:49 pm

There are a few features that I would like to see in OruxMaps, if it is possible.

Multiple zoom levels of the same map:
I like zooming in for a closer look when comming into a city. Would it be possible to use the Autoload feature to detect maps with a greater of lesser zoom level and load them automatically when zooming in or out respectively ?

Upload recorded tracks to google maps:
I would like to be able to upload recorded tracks to my google maps.
Viewing track from my google maps would be great too Smile

Load .kml format files:
I would like to be able to load direction instructions generated via google maps.
This is how I imagined it:
- go to google maps, click Get Directions
- save the directions to My Maps
- click "View in Google Earth" and save the .kml file
- copy the .kml file to phone://sdcard/oruxmaps/tracklogs
- open oruxmaps on the phone and load the saved track

I have to admit I got these ideas from other apps I have used Embarassed

Please comment, if these features won't/can/might/will be implemented in the future.

Hi dizzystreak;

Currently, there are support for two types of maps:
-multilayer maps. When you do zoom, OruxMaps loads a new map (no lost of quality).
-one layer maps. When you do zoom, you are viewing the same map, increasing/decreasing the same image (with lost of quality).

With the autoload maps capability, in "Always mode", when there is a more detailed map, it will be automatically loaded.

But I am not sure if it is convenient that, when zooming out, OruxMaps searches for a less detailed map. For example, I have a "world map", but I do not want it to be loaded when I do zoom out over a one layer map; I would rather "digital zoom" over the same map, not the world map to be loaded. But I will study your suggestion.

Kml support. I am going to give more support to this format, not only export; import kml files too.

Orux, thank you for your prompt reply.
I will give the layered maps a try and report my experience.
