Load KML overlays

Post by AlexDN1 » Mon Jun 15, 2015 12:17 am

Hello.
It would be great to load KML overlay files imported from Google Earth...That would give users opportunity to personalize the map..

Hi,
you can add up to two KML overlays and they will be displayed in the web portal map. Please note that they won't be displayed in the app, because Google Maps doesn't support KML on the phones.

Yea..Do you think it's possible to have some place in the app, a folder where KML files can be loaded?
For example Oruxmaps can do this..
In Google Earth i can make a series of polygons and export those to a sub folder in the Oruxmaps main folder....And then load them!
It, is possible to make that happen??

Sorry, at the moment it is not possible in the app. But maybe it will be supported in the future.

Hi,
I'm afraid it will not be possible in the close future - only if I find an easy solution (e.g. a ready-to-use library).

Still in beta, but could be used.

Keep up the good work!
