Cycle maps on the FreeRunner

Aug 26, 2008 by Joseph Reeves

I keep going on about Openmoko and bikes, but there are other people interested too, and I've just got the latest version of TangoGPS displaying cycle data from Andy Allan's OSM Cycle Map service.

The map can be viewed here: http://www.gravitystorm.co.uk/osm/

(check it out, it looks fantastic; highlights include relief colouring, contour lines and specially produced map icons)

Andy blogs about it here: http://www.gravitystorm.co.uk/shine/archives/category/openstreetmap/

To add the map service to TangoGPS create a new repository with the URI:

http://www.thunderflames.org/tiles/cycle/%d/%d/%d.png



No screenshot I'm afraid, because I'm trying out today's OM2008.8 release and the screen-cap application is refusing to install. It does look awesome, however.

Thanks for this post!

I tried the url - and I was able to find only .blk -files in the folders there., see http://www.thunderflames.org/tiles/cycle/12/b142/

So I think that the uri you gave doesn't work with tangogps.. Suggestions?

hi Risto,


I'm just using the address exactly as displayed above and it works fine in TangoGPS. Not sure why it's working for you; if you were in Helsinki, for example, you should get tiles such as this:
