General :: Open Local KML File In Google Maps In Offline Mode

Sep 7, 2013

i just registered here to find out if opening a KML file on my SD card with Google maps in offline mode can work. I am looking for an solution quite a time, but only found this thread on stackover.

Quote:

To load kml into Google Maps on Android without writing an app, you can create a little html file somewhere with a geo-uri link to the kml file and then click on that link in any Android web browser.

For example: suppose your kml file is located in /sdcard/overlay.kml then you write a geo-uri link like this:

Quote:

<html>
<head><title>Example KML link page using a geo-uri</title></head>
<body>
<a href="geo:0,0?q=file:///sdcard/overlay.kml">overlay.kml</a>
</body>
</html>

Clicking on the link will launch Maps and then Maps will attempt to load and your kml.

Be warned however that the Android version of Maps does not appear to handle the same version/range of kml elements as the desktop version (or desktop Google Earth).

a other thread is about editing the manifest file to get maps to open local KML files

Quote:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="h**p://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
package="com.example.lyold"

[Code]....

Any way to open local KML files with google maps in offline mode ? I want to open kml ONLY in google maps, i know there are several apps out there that support kml files....

Android :: Getting Google Maps To Accept Local KML File?

Mar 5, 2010

I am trying to get googlemaps to accept a local KML file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=file://" + Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/locate.kml"));
startActivity(myIntent);

The file is on the SD card, and is a valid KML file. Google Maps loads up, but says it cannot find the file.
final Intent myIntent = new Intent(android.content.Intent.ACTION_VIEW,
Uri.parse("geo:0,0?q=http://www.website.com/locate.kml"));
startActivity(myIntent);

Works fine. geo: 0,0? q= seems to be very under documented, how to use it to refer to a local file?

General :: Map Areas Available Offline With Google Maps 6.9.0?

Jun 28, 2012

Q: What map areas are available Offline with Google Maps 6.9.0 for Android?

Background: With Google Maps 6.9.0 it is possible to make certain maps areas available offline. As for Europe, this seems to be dependant upon where you attempt to make this happen. Most of Croatia (except Zagreb) seems to be unavailable, same goes for most of Italy except major cities.

General :: Any Way To Cache Google Maps Offline To FULL Level Of Detail

Nov 17, 2013

Ever since Google started allowing offline maps (both in the old Google Maps incarnation, and in the current one), I have found that when I download a map section for offline viewing, often there are many details missing (small street names, for example).

Any way to make Google maps download map tiles to their maximum level of detail (the level you could get if you zoomed in all the way), including all street names? You'd think this would be a given, but it seems not to be.

Searching around for discussions of this, most articles and forum threads are just about tile caching in general, not level of detailed cached.

Android :: Open A Local App File In Another App Via An Intent

Nov 8, 2010

I don't want to store said file on the sdcard in this case. The file also cannot be storage directly in the apps local files directory. It needs to be in a subdirectory, so it cannot write the file using openFileOutput() and MODE_WORLD_READABLE.

The app may download files small files like pdfs and store them locally in a subdirectory. I would like to be able to have the user open these files if they have an app that can open them.

For example here is an intent for sending a pdf:

CODE:..............

path being something like: /data/data/packagename/files/subdir/example.pdf

That intent will open a pdf viewer, but the viewer is unable to open the file. I assume this is a permissions issue. I tried Mark Murphy's suggestion here: http://groups.google.com/group/android-developers/browse_thread/thread/4e55d869213483a9/b7270078ac1a2744?lnk=raot of using Runtime.getRuntime().exec("chmod 755 " + fileName); but it didn't make any difference. He also suggested a Content Provider but I would like to avoid it if I can because it seems like a lot just to get this file over to another app.

If the content provider is the only option, do I have to save the file to the content provider or can I just use the content provider as a pass through to get it to the other app when I need to?

Android :: Caching Google Maps To Use Offline

Nov 24, 2008

I don't currently have a data plan. Since I'm on WiFi 95% of the time, I don't plan on getting one. The only thing I haven't been able to do easily (without a data plan) is use Google Maps while driving/walking.If I load the maps before leaving a WiFi hotspot, my location is tracked and I can pan around the map. Of course, as soon as I want to view another uncached portion of the map, I can't.Maps are small, and it would be perfect if I could cache maps for a certain area - say everything within 100 mi of my house. Any ideas?

General :: Offline Maps / GPS With Walking Direction?

Mar 14, 2013

i am about to travel. I would need a working offline maps with GPS/navigation service. I have tried Google offline maps but it doesn't work with "direction" so I find it kinda useless. Any offline maps/GPS service with walking direction? Navigon is the closest thing to what I want but I can't download the south america maps from play store (they say it's not available for my country). I am thinking to buy NDrive considering they use the same database (navteq).

Does NDrive have walking GPS direction (and available offline) like Navigon? If NDrive doesnt do it for me

General :: Nokia OVI Maps - Offline GPS For Android

Apr 11, 2012

Nokia's OVI maps. By far I think it's the best offline GPS navigation app. It included downloadable maps categorized by country. And smooth search function and offline turn by turn navigation. (Best of all it was free)

Now my real question is: are there any apps for android that supports offline turn by turn directions and navigation that also feature downloaded maps?

General :: Storing Offline Maps With Different Zoom Levels?

Jun 13, 2014

I need an application with which I can store maps with different zoom levels. I remember the application "Istanbul Map" let me do this and I could download Google (or other sources') maps from the zoom level I was in up to the maximum zoom level of my preference. Therefore, assuming that I had downloaded the map, when zoomed out I could only see street names and when zoomed in I could see the shops and their names or any other details corresponding to that zoom level, in case I had set the maximum zoom level to 17, 18 or 19.

However it's been two years that I haven't used that application and now that I downloaded "Istanbul Map" from Google Play I noticed that it doesn't offer the same features as before and it seems that it is specifically for Istanbul. Besides, I need to buy the application in order to use it while the previous versions were free.

Now that I am going on a trip and while on way I might need to zoom in up to the 18th zoom level to see the names of stores or other details. So I need an application that provides me the same feature as the old "Istanbul Map" letting me download Google maps for different zoom levels.The built-in Google maps application only allows to download a map with a fixed zoom level and it is useless for me.

General :: Offline GPS Navigation With Voice Routing In Pedestrian Mode

May 14, 2012

Any app for GPS navigation which has voice routing possible in pedestrian mode? I sometimes need to go to some destination in a part of the city which is not familiar for me.

However, the navigations I tried, have voice routing only in car mode, so it has to take in account things like driving directions etc. which the pedestrian does not have to respect and thus the track is much shorter.

It would be nice if I, for example, just could get off the bus, switch my GPS on, select destination, activate the voice routing and put my phone in a pocket and let the navigation voice guide me to the target place. It would be more comfortable as I sometimes see the map very poorly and also have to keep an eye on other pedestrians, cars etc.

Currently tried Sygic and it does not have this.

Android :: Getting An Invalid KML File From Google Maps

Jun 8, 2010

I'm trying to get and display a live .kml file from maps.google.com using

CODE:.................

However after opening the mapview I get a notification saying "The community map could not be displayed because it contains errors"

I only get this error if I download the .kml directly from maps.google. If I copy the exact same link into my address bar, download the .kml file, and upload it elsewhere then it works fine. I would like to be able to get the maps directly from Google that way I can make a change and it would be immediately reflected to my users.

General :: Possible To Install Greek Kdz File With Offline Method

Jun 9, 2013

I am from Greece. i am sailor so i bought from Italy a LG optimus L9 P760 v20B (with "TIM" software as i can image from those TIM aps inside). It doesn't have greek language so after a fail contaction with LG, i tried to search in xda to find a solution. The only solution is the OFFLINE METHOD but i followed every step one by one but i didnt make anything.... Not possible to install the greek kdz file with offline method. After doing those steps, after step "9" when im clossing the small box, there is no step 10 for me. Actually i never saw a step 10 in any of mine pc. I feel that something is going on in the small server.

Do i need to have internet to do the offline method??

I need 2 things only
1) Greek language
2) To root the phone so i can delete those TIM's apps which are full unusable for my GREEK probider ( and i cannot understand italian...)

General :: Google Now Won't Work Offline

May 19, 2014

My understanding is that I can use Google Now voice commands offline "as long as it was for something that doesn't need an internet connection to perform" like setting alarm and opening apps. and for that purpose I have to install the appropriate language under "offline speech recognition", which I already have it pre-installed on my phone.

The issue here is that while I'm connected to the internet via wifi, Google Now works fine, but the moment I turn wifi off and go offline, Google Now stops working! It still recognize the hot word trigger "OK Google" but after listening to my command it shows this response "Didn't catch that. Try speaking again".

I turn wifi on, and it works again! even though I used the same exact voice command! I have language pack pre-installed on my Moto G "running Kitkat", and everything seems to be in order, so why isn't it working offline?

Here is the screenshots where you'll see that everything checks out, yet no Google Now offline!

First the scenario when I'm still online via wifi, everything works fine:

Now, when I turn off wifi and go offline:

General :: Playing Local Audio File In Webview App

Feb 3, 2012

When trying to play a local mp3 file included in the APK, nothing happens. However, if I pull an mp3 from the web it works.

e.g.

< a u d i o src="[URL]..." > WORKS

< a u d i o src="01.mp3" > DOES NOT WORK

I tried looking through logs for clues and found this line. I'm not sure if it's relevant or not.

PlayerDriver::isProtectedFile(file:///android_asset/www/01.mp3)

I'm new to Android development, so I can only guess that the file is somehow inaccessible for streaming.

I'd love to get this figured out though. Having to pull the files remotely every time is not a desirable solution.

Some additional info. Either solution works when tested in the browser. The local file problem only arises when I convert it to an app. I'm using PhoneGap build to create the APK.

Android :: Offline Topographic Maps?

Jun 24, 2010

I'm somewhat unfamiliar with the droid incredible's GPS features. I know it uses A-GPS, but I've been led to believe that the use of cell towers is only to facilitate the acquisition of the almanac or when GPS signal is unavaible altogether. I'd like to use my phone's GPS while camping, at which point I'll be well away from cell coverage. Will I still be able to get a GPS signal. If so can anyone reccomend a topographic mapping software that I can download maps from to my phone?
