Offline Maps Guide

Offline maps are only available for Kurviger Pro, if you want to use offline maps, you can get Kurviger Pro here. Offline maps allow you to browse the map without internet connection. The route calculation requires you to have an internet connection, but the navigation itself does not require an internet connection, when using offline maps.

Getting Started with Offline Maps

To start using offline maps, go to the menu → Map. This menu allows you to download, open, and add offline maps. We provide offline maps for the whole world, if you are missing an area, let us know in the forum. Click on Download maps to get to our map download site. Select the area you want to download. To download the map of Germany, go to europegermany.map. The map download is handled by your browser. Once the download finishes you can add the map to the Kurviger App. You can also choose to download maps from OpenAndroMaps, they are fully compatible with our map format.

Opening Your First Map

You can open maps, by going to the Kurviger App, menu → MapOpen Map. A file browser will open up, go to the Download folder. Click on your downloaded region, e.g. australia.map. You will now see your downloaded region, browsing this map needs no internet connection. Mixing offline and online maps is currently not possible, so you can only view your downloaded region, but you can add other maps, to cover the area you need.

Adding more Maps

Adding other maps, is as easy as opening your first map. Simply go to the map download site and download the regions you are interested in. The areas do not need to be adjacent, just choose any you like. Go to the Kurviger App, menu → MapOpen Map. This time the app will ask you if you want to add or open the map. If you add it your current maps are kept in the app while the new maps are added. If you open the map, the currently opened maps will be removed. Select your downloaded region. The region has been added to your offline available regions. You can add as many offline maps as you want for free.

Offline Maps on the SD card

Switching back to Online Maps

In some cases you might prefer having online maps again. Simply go to menu → MapOnline maps and select your preferred provider.

Future Improvements

We are still working on a couple of improvements for offline maps. We decided to publish this function early, so you can already enjoy offline maps.

  • In the future we want to add a download manager for offline maps. So you don't need to leave the app to download maps, also you will be able to receive automatic updates.
  • Currently, you cannot mix offline and online maps. In the future it is planned that you can simply use online maps outside your downloaded region.

Enjoy your ride with Kurviger!
