I am an avid user of OsmAnd. Some of the maps I have are now becoming a bit outdated - shops that changed name, paths that no longer exist, new paths that are not yet marked.

How can I update a map that I already have on my system?

    2 ways : once is to use the tools dedicate for that but you have only 10 update available with the free version. Second : you download files from osmand ftp server download.osmand.net/rawindexes and put them on your file system where osmand is installed. – Hugo Roussaffa - GeoDatup Sep 23 '17 at 21:18

Alternatively, the OsmAnd~ (mind the "~") version available from F-Droid (https://www.f-droid.org) doesn't include the 10-map download limit : https://f-droid.org/fr/packages/net.osmand.plus/

You can simply download/update your maps from within the app :

  1. Start OsmAnd Tap the "Menu" icon.
  2. Tap "Download maps".
  3. Pick the regions of your liking. You can also swipe the the "Update" tab to update already-present maps.

You'll need an Internet connexion for that. Also, be wary that maps can easily be hundreds of MiB (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix) in size.

  • Could you please explain how to update a map from the application? – Luís de Sousa Aug 9 '18 at 6:50
