A new version of Oruxmaps will appear soon in the playstore with the long awaited themeswitcher for vectormaps like the openandromaps.
This Themeswitcher needs a complete different installation of the themes and once Oruxmaps is updated it will switch back to the minimum-theme (osmarender.xml).

To be prepared for this situation I strongly recommend to install the new Themes for Oruxmaps RIGHT NOW, even the old Version of Oruxmaps is still installed


HOW TO:


LINK: Download the new themes

Right within the folder ./oruxmaps create the subfolders /mapstyles/OAM/ .
Unzip the themes and copy them to ../oruxmaps/mapstyles/OAM/.
The folder structure now should look like this:
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/OAM/symbols/*.png
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/OAM/patterns/*.png
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/OAM/andromaps_hc.xml
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/OAM/andromaps_mtb.xml
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/OAM/andromaps_light.xml

Once the new version of Oruxmaps with the themeswitcher is installed/updated aktivate one of the themes for the openandromaps by calling the themeswitcher in Oruxmaps, switch to the folder /OAM and tap on the theme you want to be displayed (eg. andromaps_hc.xml).


Why install the openandromaps themes in a subdirectory /OAM ? (it is perfect possible to install theme right in ../oruxmaps/mapstyles):
Once the oruxmaps with the themeswitcher is out there will be a lot of custom themes (maybe your own ones), probably with different symbols/patterns. So you can install them in a different subfolder like:
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/MYTHEME/
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/MYTHEME/symbols/*.png
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/MYTHEME/patterns/*.png
../oruxmaps/mapstyles/MYTHEME/andromaps_modified.xml


Again: I strongly recommend to install the new themes right now or you maybe run into the situation where you are on a mountain_hut with wlan - Oruxmaps is updating in the background and you loose contourlines, routes and all goodies of the openandromaps

Hello, and thanks for OpenAndromaps! (I am a small donor of your project as well).

the problem with this is, that I cannot find the latest beta's .apk in the usual place. Has it been moved? Does anybody have a link?

Thanks!

Yes, that's where I looked for.

I also took a peek at the downloads page:
http://www.oruxmaps.com/descargas_en.html
but it looks quite outdated as well.

Who knows what is going on... I am a bit worried.

the last release (with new themeswitcher) is now in the home page as an apk, direct link:
http://www.oruxmaps.com/OruxMaps5.5.5.apk
Edit, there is also the last release http://www.oruxmaps.com/OruxMaps5.5.4.apk also with the themeswitcher.
I haven't yet tried the 5.5.5 version, I believe it was posted today.
