@art what is it?
@Canageek An awesome open source map and navigation application.
Maps android app Show more
It is pretty slick. With OpenStreetMap integration and everything.
> The OpenStreetMap database is updated every minute. As for the app itself, we update maps with almost every new release. If you have made a modification in OSM, you will be able to see it in one of the following releases.
@art it's great! use it myself. has public transport too!
@art available in f-droid?
@wuhei I don't see that anywhere in the app.
@art After hours of trying to get it to compile, it finally does!
@art I have some issues with Maps/omim after compiling. Taping and holding causes it to freeze crash for instance. Couldn't find this issue on gitlab either. Is there a binary release for this from gitlab?
@CarbonCatalyst I pulled my binary from F-Droid.
That worked Like a Charm! Thanks!
@CarbonCatalyst I don't really ever compile my Android apps. That's something that I really should get familiar with but I'm very lazy. 😁
@art Last follow up on this topic. Turns out, at least with a Wiko Lenny 2, Maps has a pretty high batter consumption, so for longer car or bike rides I'll probably stick with Navit for the time being. I'm not a big fan of it only telling you which way to turn, without saying the street name or direction of travel (e.g. on the highway), though. It works pretty well though, when it has stable GPS lock-on and it's super helpful that it can show opening times for businesses, upon clicking on 'em.
@CarbonCatalyst That's good to know. I don't use navigation very often.
