The background is, that I've taken up up hiking and biking as hobbies.
One of the issues is, that I cannot have google maps display gpx routes and that in the forrest, I normally don't have a 3G connection, so the maps either lag or aren't there at all.
So, what I would like is the possiblity to download an area (preferably a google earth view) into the phone to be stored there and available for offline navigation.
The second thing, I would like, is using these maps together with hiking routes that I can usually download as gpx files. I am aware of the existance of mytracks and oruxmaps, both of which I have to look into more closely.
I will have to see, if navigation along those routes is then possible,
If this is possible, I would also like to use it for the bike. I would then buy a (cheap) 7" android tablet, to mount on the handlebar, to view the maps.
I would really appreciate any help you guys might be able to offer.
