OsmAnd 1.6 Released

October 26, 2013

New major release is rolled out. It has lots of small & useful features. We completely redesigned how the map rendered, now you would not see view freezes while dragging the map. Here is the short list of new features :

  • Support of Full HD devices
  • Support transparent map background (allow to see map over satellites view)
  • Show downloaded maps and facilitate downloading missing maps directly from the map view
  • Contour line map files now bundled for countries/regions
  • New world basemap with major roads, railroads, and major areal features like forests
  • Map magnifier feature (long click on zoom button) - Useful both for tile and vector maps
  • Define/edit custom online tile sources (and specify expiration time)
  • Support of time conditional speed limits (Netherlands for example)
  • Faster search address input
  • Bug fixes with routing and rendering
