How do I use offline maps?

Hi there,

I bought Geooh Go yesterday evening in Play Store to use it on my Huawei Mate 10 Pro. I have already C:Geo installed where I can use my Locus offline maps. Is there a possibility to use these maps in Geooh Go, too? I have just played a bit around and found the point in the preferences where I can choose offline maps from Maps.Me for navigation but when I go to live view I still see the Google online map.
I would prefer offline maps as I often walk in regions where internet ist rather weak or even obsolete.
Thank you in advance fpr each bit of help.

Kind regards,
Paatrik

Offline maps are available in the enhanced subscription version of Geooh. From the left side drawer on the home screen select enhanced. After the enhanced you'll see a new section in settings called Alternative Maps. Tap the check box for Use Offline Maps. Then you can select a directory folder with any OSM Mapsforge maps. You can choose the folder where your c:geo and Locus maps are to share between the apps.

Let me know if that helps.

Thank you very much. I didn't achieve to get the Locus maps running but I was able to download some maps from Mapforge, put them into a folder and yes, now I am able to use these maps offline. Great and thanx again for your help!!!
Kind regards,
Patrik

From home screen, when I look at the left 'drawer' (I assume you mean what happens when you pan left to right), I see Geocaches (gray), Profile, WheriGO, Lists, GeoTours, TB Scanner, TB Logger, Share Lists, and Manage Counties (gray).  I don't see the "Enhanced" option.  I'm a 2x/year subscriber.  Will be in some areas soon with zero cellular or WiFi coverage, and would like to download some maps in advance to use offline.  I have 11.11.05.

Got it working.  Missed that check box.
Learning this app is a bit like learning GSAK.  If you want to play with ALL of the knobs, it takes quite a bit of effort - but always worth it in the end.
