  1. Hi

    I have the RMap 0.9.4 version and all works very nice but the search tool. When I try search anything, nothing happen

    Any idea?

  2. It seems to have disappeared from google playstore

  3. Argh!
    I fucking LOVED RMaps, used it at least once a week while I was living in London! Have all sorts of markers set in there.
    Now… not just no update and seems broken (tried to download a map for Vienna but got many, many broken tiles) but even gone from the store?! Well, I’m really happy that I supported it buy buying a pro key -_-

  4. Oh and by the way – I very much doubt that City Maps could be an acceptable replacement, since OpenStreetMap in fact contains less information than Google Maps. At least when I compared the train station at King’s Cross (London) for both. Mostly just a huge block on OSM, Google Maps also maps the inside.

  5. Also, by trying to download Google Maps segments with All-In-One Offline Maps, I discovered what the likely culprit is: “Due to legal issues, this feature is disabled for the following map(s): Google Map”

    Once again, Google Nazis to the rescue!
    It’s quite amazing how quickly Google became a worse company than Microsoft. Even McDonalds starts to look pretty decent in comparison.
    Makes me want to throw my Nexus out the window… had I not bought it relatively recently.

  6. Did you have RMAP’s source code?
    If does, can you send it to my gmail?

    thx

  7. rmaps source is available through github and it’s also on fdroid.org (source, apk and store installable for several versions)

    Anyone know why it got pulled from Play? :-s
