OsmAnd Cloud



Β  To get all the benefits of OsmAnd Cloud, subscribe to OsmAnd Pro for Android or iOS.


OsmAnd Cloud is a cloud storage service that is not associated with the Android or iOS versions of the app, or the Web platform.

OsmAnd Cloud is the resource you need to save your personal settings and app data. You can use this data on any device available to install the OsmAnd app or when using the desktop app. Any changes you make can be synchronized.


OsmAnd Cloud provides the ability to backup, restore and utilize data across Android, iOS devices and the web version. Cloud's cross-platform capabilities allow you to transfer profile settings, tracks, favorites and more from one device to another. In the web version, you can plan a route and save it for later use on devices connected to OsmAnd Cloud.

The cross-platform capability allows you to use OsmAnd on all platforms (Android ← β†’ iOS β†’ Web). To do this you need to:

  1. Subscribe to OsmAnd Pro. Read more about how to do this for Android here, and for iOS here.
  2. You can take advantage of free cloud backup with our OsmAnd Start plan for favorites, settings and OSM edits/notes. The cloud storage will be 5 MB.
  3. Register your account on the OsmAnd server.
  4. The registered email will be your login to activate OsmAnd Pro or OsmAnd Start on other platforms.

OsmAnd Pro is a subscription with all the features of OsmAnd. Its main advantage is that it is cross-platform. This means that you can buy it in one store, for example for Android (Google Play, Amazon, Huawei AppGallery), and launch it on iOS.

Last sync​

Last sync is a drop-down menu that shows how long ago data was last synchronized between this device and the cloud.

  • Local changes - shows the total number of local changes not uploaded to the cloud.
  • Cloud changes - the total number of changes uploaded to the cloud from other devices since the last synchronization.
  • Conflicts - the total number of inconsistencies between local and cloud changes.
  • Sync now - select this option to synchronize all selected data sections in the settings menu that you have changed on this device and in the cloud.

Sync now combines the Upload all and Download all buttons in the Changes menu, in the Local and Cloud sections. Conflicts are not synchronized in this way.

  3. Delete account (Android only). To delete an account, you need to go through a verification process. A one-time password for confirmation will be sent to your e-mail address registered on OsmAnd Cloud.
    • All data from OsmAnd Cloud will be deleted. Data on the device remains untouched.
    • Your account and all account details will be deleted.
    • Secondary devices will be logged off from OsmAnd Cloud and lose access to paid features.

List of changes​

In the Last Sync section from the drop-down menu, tap any item to go to the Changes section. In this section, three tabs display all the changes available for editing. If the list is empty, it means that there have been no changes since the last synchronization.

Each item in the Changes list contains information about the date and accurate time of the last synchronization, as well as two items for instantly downloading or uploading the relevant version.


Downloading changes from the cloud storage will override local changes. Accordingly, uploaded local data removes changes in the cloud version.

Local and Cloud​

  • Local. You can sync local changes that do not exist in the cloud version all at once using the Upload All button. Or you can select any change you need from the list and tap it to select the Upload local version.
    Changes that have been uploaded from the local version to the cloud are removed after a while from the Changes β†’ Local tab.
  • Cloud. The Cloud tab displays a list of changes that can be downloaded to your device from the cloud storage. You can download all the changes at once using the button at the bottom of the screen, or separately.

Conflicts appear if the local version and the version stored in the cloud do not match. In this case, you can replace the data in the cloud with local changes or download the stored data to the device from the cloud. The resolved conflicts are removed from the list after processing, which usually does not take long. Tapping Conflicts displays information about the local and cloud versions in sync. You can choose to upload or download.
