I need my map (OS) to be 'flat' and not skewed in 3d form.
Just drag the map DOWN with two fingers to enable Perspective View and drag UP with two fingers to disable it.

You can also disable it completely in the settings (Perspective map view).

PV is a bit of a Marmite feature :lol:

Re: Support .obf maps from osmand - feature request

I second that, if it is possible. The OSMAND UK off-line map is nice and compact and also looks pretty good with its contour and hill shading layers.

Re: Following routes

Hi, The "significant waypoints" already exist. Just create a route instead of a path and follow it. The application will target the next waypoint on the route, and automatically switch to the next one when the "follow distance threshold" is reached. And in the explorer mode you can get all the info...

Re: Following routes

I like the idea of significant waypoints. Maybe these could be displayed with either a different coloured dot, and/or a dot of a different shape, eg. square, triangle or star.

Re: Yellow squares to represent stale tiles

https://www.offline-maps.net/en/help/maps/stored/check-coverage mentions red squares, and green squares. However I have an idea, how about also adding yellow squares? Yellow squares would represent tiles that have already been downloaded but are already older than their expiration date. If tile exp...

Re: zoom-values become 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7

For the casual user, this is just saying that you are at the relative zoom level, X out of Y, which probably makes sense for most users. But, I agree that the real map zoom value should also be displayed, maybe in brackets.

Re: Inclined view is disorienting

Great app! Using it for years. The new inclined view is visually disturbing and disorienting to me. Is there a way to toggle back to normal map view? Have to agree that I am not a great fan of this distorted perspective either. Not really sure what it is attempting to achieve as it just makes every...

Re: [closed] Bluestacks (Android on Windows)

There is a utility, BSTweaker, which is supposed to allow you to resize the emulated ROM, but unfortunately this particular function is not yet implemented in BS4. This has now been partially fixed in BS v4.60 / BSTweaker v5.1060 , where you can now resize upto 128Gb . Hint, if you are going to re-...

Re: Track editor software for Windows

Hello, I am looking for a Windows app that will let me display maps from OpenTopoMap and create GPX tracks on it, free if possible. Is there anything like that ? Thanks in advance Alternatively, you could run AQ within BlueStacks 4 on your PC. You will need an SSD to host it on for performance, but...

Re: Landmark Open URL Via Long Press Not Working Correctly

This is fixed in v2.2.0.r5342. It works perfectly now, many thanks for the prompt fix 8-) One small request, if I may. This is not a bug and I fully understand the reasoning behind it, but it would be nice to be able to bypass the "re-import" dialog box that is displayed if a previously displayed GP...

Re: [closed] Bluestacks (Android on Windows)

Finally got round to trying BlueStacks 4 out with AQ. I really don't like the BS4 interface as it is far too tied down. It also seems to be a vehicle for flogging games, which I have zero interest in. That said, I thought that its performance was nippy enough, although I've got it installed on a ded...

Re: Landmark Open URL Fails !

Hi Yemble, I've just published an update that should fix the GPX file problem. Note that LDK files cannot be opened from another application. You must select them from directly from the application. Just like map files. Brilliant. Tested and working again :D As for opening the LDK file from within ...

[fixed] Landmark Open URL Fails !

I've used this feature in AQ for years now and rely on it for route planning and navigation. However, when I tried to use it today (first time in 2019), it failed with an error. I have tried it on three separate devices and the error is the same. It is also occurs on both the release version (2.1.1f...
