OsmAnd 1.7 Released

OsmAnd 1.7 is coming. The biggest breakthrough of this release is a new route planning mode, after any Directions action, which is designed to quickly change start and destination point, tweak parameters and see immediate route recalculation.

  • One of the major changes is route calculation engine. It is completely rebuild and gives precise route based on routing parameters.
  • To take advantage of all features of new route calculation, maps should be updated as March 2014.
  • GPX route calculation is moved under Route Settings button and feature of 'Pass the whole track' enables OsmAnd navigation, so you will always get map instructions even if you deviated from the route.
  • Active tunnel simulation (long waiting feature)
  • Speech rate setting (accessibility)
  • Lots of small & handy features

OsmAnd Seamarks & Bitcoin maps

New maps are available to download World bitcoin payments and World seamarks.

In order to see all places where you could pay bitcoins in bitcoins present in Open Street Map, you could use 'POI Layer' or 'Search POI' in category Finance. You can also use search by name in order to find all places. Since OsmAnd 1.7 : new sub category "bitcoin" is present in the category "Finance".
Seamarks is POI layer of OpenSeaMap, which later will be transformed into a special rendering map style.

Maps will be updated on the regularly schedule.
