Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
In the meantime I use the Google translator because my English is too bad for me to get into technical problems. I hope the translation is sufficient.

The fact is, everything worked fine with GeoohGo before the current changes. The cards and themes all worked out wonderfully. This is currently no longer the case.

Only you can tell what has changed. Why that was changed when it worked too.

To me the approach and the will sounded good. We saw that it is possible.

For me the maps are not usable as they are currently made. Putting everything in the internal memory is not a solution for me, because then I can throw my smartphone away because I can no longer use it because the internal memory will then overflow.

There is enough space on the SD card.

And the statement that Google or Mapsforge no longer supports this is nonsensical to me, because I've seen that it also works with GeoohGo.

I don't care what you do with it now. Because GeoohGo is no longer useful for me. And that's why I don't intend to interfere senselessly in the development and continue testing, if everything is changed again after all, if it's actually ok. And then, unfortunately, the change is deterioration.

Sorry I don't understand ...

And whether something SAF, whatever that is supported or not, is of no interest to me as a user. I want to go geocaching with the app and not worry about the technology behind it. It just has to work.

I see with other apps what I ask is possible and here too, but somehow it doesn't work.

For my part, GeoohGo seems to have slowly become history, since it cannot be used by me.

And don't tell you that it wouldn't work because I saw that it works ...

In my case, the Samsung Galaxy S9 is a very good and fast smartphone with android 10. And there is no ned for me to change the device just to run GeoohGo. My with buyed a new smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy A41 and it works with SD card. And so the apps have to work with this situation without try and error principle.

We are just user and not programmer. In this case the programmer is in the case of support and has to find a solution to us.

I always saved it, but it wont work like i wrote.

It worked in the version, that I tested on 06.01.2021. But with the actuell version it dont.

In the other apps I have no problem at all with maps and themes on sd. It simply works ...
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
Unfortunately, it no longer works with the latest version. It worked with the previous one.

Every time I go to the settings on alternative maps, a red dot is displayed in front of the offline map folder. I then have to click to grant access to the directory.

It seems that GeoohGo forgets the setting every time. I also don't see a selection for the theme.

In the map view, I then see a map without a theme. If I go to Options, Map, then nothing happens. There is no reaction.

It worked with the previous version. Well not anymore.

My cards with themes are still on the SD card. But I had to create a separate directory for GeoohGo, because I have several map types in the main directory and GeoohGo can't handle that.

With the other apps, I can manually select the card types in the directory as needed.

At GeoohGo I limited myself to the Freizeitkarte with a corresponding theme.
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
It would be nice if you could restore the functionality of the SD card as in the last version of the app. Because, as I already wrote, everything worked wonderfully when using a card. The theme could also be easily selected and adapted.

What you have changed in the current version, you should know yourself and simply undo it. Then my problems would be solved and I could use GeoohGo as I would like.

I primarily use the Freizeitkarte Maps and there are 3 themes. So it worked wonderfully and should work again as it was intended.

I cannot understand that there will be no more smartphones with SD cards in the future. Because the users don't want that. And I think this is not so. Your info seems to be wrong.

Samsung, the largest manufacturer of Android smartphones, has an SD card inside each of its models. With every new model, 2 SIM cards and 1 SD card can now be used. The size of the SD card is constantly being adapted and expanded. And that's because the users want it. That's why everything should work with it.

Personally, I would never buy a device without an SD card. The advantages of the SD card simply outweigh it. Because the smartphone could break and then you can no longer access important data in the internal memory. If they are on SD, like mine, then they can be saved more easily.

Could write down more advantages, but that would be over the topic.

In addition, you can easily accommodate large amounts of data there, such as maps and other things.

Should GeoohGo only be able to use data in internal storage in the future. Then it will bypass the trend because users want SD cards.

The whole time you could use the SD cards and it doesn't make sense to me why not anymore, although it is actually possible. You could see that in the last version, which worked wonderfully and quickly after my adaptation to only use one type of card.

Otherwise I will probably no longer be able to use GeoohGo because I need the offline maps and these on an SD card. For me there is no alternative where I save the maps. I need the limited internal memory for other data.
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
Did you read this post of me?

I think I have found the reason, why it was so slow.

In my map folder, I had the mapsforge maps from Freizeitkarte and from OpenAndroMaps. Both in same folder
I now tried it only with the mapfiles from freizeitkarte. And now it seems to be faster.

But still the elevate theme dont work on my side.

It worked fast on SD card, when I only put the Mapsforge Maps from Freizeitkarte on it with the themes.

The problem was the 2 different map files. This slowed it down.

My phone will never get Android 11. It will stay in Android 10.

Map Files to small internal memory is not what I want and I cannot use GeoohGo with this.

Why don't you make it with the version, that worked?

Locus, C:geo and Cachebox work well with offline Maps on SD. And GeoohGo too, like we have seen.

You are just limited on one type of maps, not 2 or 3 deferent in this case.

Maps in internal memory is not usable for me. Especially cause I already use them on SD.

Think about it. It was already working ...
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
Now I put some maps and themes to internal memory for a test.

There everything works well as it should.

On SD card it is the problem, that the themes are not shown any more. In the version before the themes worked on SD Card.

You see that on the screenshots I posted before.

I don't want to use internal space due to the lower space. And it worked before and also with other apps.
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
I try to deselect and select or new. Make restart. Same Problem. No theme options.

In last version it worked, but now the are gone.

I don't want to use large map files on internal space. On SD I have more space and it worked there before. And I use it without problems on SD till now.
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
I made a small test of the new version.

I remark that the multiple theme is gone in options. Also you cannot choose the theme options.

Everything you have implemented seems to be gone and don't works at all.

Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
The problem could be the 2 different Mapsforge Maps files. Freizeitkarte needs another than OAM. And I cannot choose witch of them, so GeoohGo analysis both in the folder and this causes the freeze.

When I can choose manually the map file, it could work.

Maybe multiple offline Map files should be the goal to solve the problem.
Requests / Re: Themes and choices for offline maps
I even download elevate new from the website.

With Locus it works well with the same map file.

And such a file in the directory is a map form mapsforge maps and it is up to 1 GB or more. This is to big to send via email and it is the same that you can download on the OpenAndroMap Webside. Also the theme is from there. Nothing different ...
