For a long time the RM user wish an app for smartphone and tablet. With the RMv2 this will be possible. RMv2 contain the new MBTiles export option for ready charts and there is an app (or more), who can display charts as visible in RM or the Navico chart plotter.

The RMv1 user know the MBTiles as an export option for sidescanmosaic.

The app is called “Galileo Offline Maps” galileo-app.com/ an works with Android and iOS konzipiert (only with Android testet from me)

The app
- Is free,
- Can handle big files (tested with 1,9 GB without problems), several files
- Can offline navigation & offline chart viewing,
- Can create tracks and waypoints,
- Do not use a cloud for datas, can use files from the unit sd-card,
- Display RMv2 charts in different zoom levels with about the same quality (this is the most important difference to other "single raster" apps).

The attached screenshot show a chart from RMv2 in 3 zoom levels, created with background aerial photo (also added as new export option in RMv2) + shaded relief + depthlines + shorelines. Each other options are possible.

Android: To associate the MBTiles with the “Galileo Offline Maps” app, use the “Explorer” App play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=co...eedsoftware.explorer . After Installation navigate to the MBTiles file(s) on the SD-card and relate it(s) with the “Galileo Offline Maps” app. Now you can select the imported chart from the “offline chart menu” in the app settings.

For other functions read the manual from the “Galileo Offline Maps” homepage. There also iOS user find a guide for the file association.







The background from the screenshots isn't any online chart as Google Maps - it's an MBTile from aerial photos, in this case Bing satellite, importet in RM and processed with the lake datas into a new MBTiles for the Smartphone app.

The next screenshots show only the vector elements from RM without background chart. As you can see, the MBTiles works simular to a real vector graphic.

Great feature addition! Can't wait to play with it. Thanks RM!

A couple other recommendations for apps that can utilize mbtile exports.

Android: LocusMaps, OruxMaps

Apple: Map Plus (GIS Editor + Offline Map + GPS Recorder)

There is possibility to work with RM1 maps on Android also.
I use OruxMaps.

1. export raster maps from RM
2. write in notepad calibration file for OziExplorer
3. Use convertion tool from OruxMaps site (OruxMaps desktop v2.1 www.oruxmaps.com/cs/en/more/downloads
Done.

I would like ask for Android aplication with vector maps format. Google Earth for android is terrible.

Interested in hearing about this Skinnee...would love to find something that supported vector maps (one way or the other) over a google earth style interface that supported pay-per-downlaod. I.e. user can download lake map 1 for $19.99, map 2 for $25.99 etc.

Google Earth also works well with KMZ-maps after the latest update of the app.
