I use phones, not tablets.  Any tablet that has GPS will work.

As for where to get maps, download this document from Bob T.  https://www.mediafire.com/file/bz5y4j6vy997hdr/BCN%252C_Orux%252C_Garmin%252C_and_Apple_Map_Plus_Map_Files_and_Instructions_060719.pdf/file
It has step by step instructions to walk you thru the process.

When I setup a new device I download the app (Orux) from google play direct to device.  I download all of Bob's files to my PC/Laptop.  Then, I plug the device into my PC/Laptop and move everything over that way.

General Discussion / BCN pure white layer
« on: March 20, 2020, 10:38:58 AM »
I'm very new to BCN.  I've downloaded some of BOB T's maps for WV ATV trails on there.
I'd like to view his maps in the program over a pure white background.

When I try to switch layers, It gives options for many types of maps.  I've tried using options for EU and other places.  Those do offer a white background but, it has offline symbols pasted all over that background which makes it hard to see the actual tracks and waypoints.

Any help in how to achieve a clean background would be appreciated.

Thanks for the offer Bob, much appreciated.

I was able to get the WVATV 2016 file to display this morning.
It seems the app was looking for maps in the wrong folder.  I had to change the Maps settings in the app to look in the folder oruxmaps/mapfiles/....

After doing that I hit "switch map". Checked offline maps, and the folder was still empty.
Hit refresh a few times.
Still empty.
Re-started the phone.
Now I have 2 maps in the offline folder.  World and WVATV 2016.

Odd thing is, when I view the folder thru file manager, there a few maps in there.  Orux is only showing me 2.

Now that its working somewhat, I will try to figure out what I can.  If I get stumped I will reach out.  Thanks again!

I am having the same problem.  If you get a solution please post on here.  I have sent emails to Orux and asked for help.  I will post a solution if I get one.    I am about to give up and just go with Back Country Nav.   I got the maps to come up in Back Country.

My problem was that I was clueless.  I took me a minute to realize that it took 2 files to make 1 map, that a Text file won't show up in the app but will in FMHD, etc...

Just got back from a trip to the pocahontas area in WV.  Bob's maps were spot on!  It helped us find short cuts, long cuts, and some great routes we otherwise would have missed.

Great resource! Thank you.

I'm having similar issues as Hollywood.

I used Google maps satellite for the base map.  I am able to zoom to about 2000 ft before the base disappears.

If I zoom out, the base does not reappear.  I need to reload the multimap to see the base again.

I got the site image host to work for me after submitting a post.

Here is a screenshot of my directory where I placed the maps I'd like to view with Orux.


Here is a screenshot where I tried to pull up an offline map.

General Discussion / Orux basics

Hey all, Mike from Pittsburgh here.  New to the forum, and Orux maps, GPS navigation....

I'm close to being technologically illiterate.  Requesting assistance getting the Orux app to work on my Samsung S5 with Bob T's ATV maps.

I have Orux installed.
I have Bob's zip file on the phone.  Read through his instructions.  I tried reading the Orux manual but its a bit over my head.

I *think* I have the map files that Bob provides in the correct directory on my phone.  However, when I hit the "maps" button in the app, I go to offline maps and cannot find the maps in the directory on my phone.

I have included a couple screen shots.  One showing the file directory on my device and one showing the popup message from the app. **Never mind** It appears I can't post a link yet and the image host on the site won't allow me upload anything yet. 

I can describe the location of "Bob T's" maps on my phone instead of providing a screenshot. 
Internal Directory/oruxmaps/mapfiles/WV ATV Trails 2016.TYP
Internal Directory/oruxmaps/mapfiles/WV ATV Trails 2016.img

When I am in the app, I press the map icon on the upper bar.
I press switch maps.
I have the option of Online or Offline
When I select Offline, there are no maps there.  There is a folder named Mulitmaps but, it is empty.

Can anyone tell me why I can't pull the ATV maps up?

Can anyone explain how I can get the maps to pop up?  I'd like the use the "WV ATV maps"

Thanks,
Mike
