I'm trying to add local mbtile into mobac.

I have tried to create an XML file in the map sources folder with this information

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
   <name>Custom SQLite atlas</name>
   <tileImageType>PNG</tileImageType> <!-- optional -->

but I can't find anything new when I try to add the map inside Mobac.

Have you positioned MOBAC over the area covered by the MBTiles file?

Open Open Street Map Public Transport and right drag/zoom to where you want to be. Then switch to the MBTiles.

  • Yes I'm over the area that the MBTiles should cover. But I can't switch between Open Street Map and the MBTiles, because Mobac haven't recognized the xml file, so I can't add it into a mapsource.

The solution was to change the

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
