What's new in this version (2.1):
Improved filter settings make the map even more accessible.
2) Map update
A brand new version of the OpenStreetMap map data is available in this version.
3) Map installation from SD card
You can download maps from www.skobbler.com and install them onto your SD card.
Download fully interactive maps (OSM) to your device – including all available city maps – for more than 30 entire countries in Europe, then use them without requiring an internet connection.
Address search, location finder, route calculation and information on places of interest are all included and work offline. This way, you can also use maps without limitations any time now.
For a great number of sights of interest, ForeverMap also includes extensive descriptions from Wikipedia. Because of advanced map compression technology, you can easily store several countries completely on your device.
You always have the choice which countries you want to store on your device. Connect your device to a WiFi network and download the maps you require – as many and as often as you want. You can then use these maps everywhere without having to go online (so-called “Offline Maps”). That avoids frustration in any case and it also saves a lot of money abroad by avoiding roaming charges from your mobile phone provider.
It also enables you to find the optimal balance between the size of the installation and the mapping material of interest to you. Result: More free space for your music, videos, photos, and other apps.
You can also show your current location and routes for pedestrians or cars entirely without an internet connection. ForeverMap also offers searches for addresses and places of interest in the maps that you have installed.
ForeverMap uses the maps from the outstanding OpenStreetMap project (the “Wikipedia of maps”). You can get an impression of the generally astounding quality of the maps at http://www.openstreetmap.org. We will of course update the map data in the app for you on a regular basis without charge.
This makes ForeverMap the ideal companion anywhere at any time, especially when you travel, regardless of whether you are taking a city trip (Citymaps) or a tour including areas outside the cities. You can always get your bearings and never again get lost.
Limit the displayed details of ForeverMap to what interests you with the help of easy-to-set filters. You will also get an intuitive bookmark system and a freely rotatable and zoomable map with a compass, which can be set to orient itself automatically in your direction of travel.
The new IdeaLog function allows you to let us directly know, what needs to be improved and what should be included in future updates. You can also rate and comment on suggestions of other users. Come forward and help shaping the future development of ForeverMap.
