New version QuoVadis 7.3 including a Compiler to create routable Offline-OSM maps
Available now, free upgrade for QuoVadis 7 users to QuoVadis 7.3 The new version includes many internal updates and fixes and the following highlights:
- OSM vectormaps and routing for offline use
- integrated compiler to generate your own, routable maps from free OSM *.pbf files
- simple data exchange with TomTom Rider and Becker Mamba
- Google and Bing routing engine now are both available for online routing in QuoVadis 7.3
It took a long and troublesome development time to build the performant file format and routing abilities for converting those free OSM Data into. A suitable compiler could be integrated as a new tool in QuoVadis 7.3 You simply download the desired packages in OSM *.pbf file format from GEOFABRIK GmbH or planet.OSM (freely selectable areas), start QV7.3, open QV7.3 compiler at "New", "Start QMV Compiler".
Then you select the desired options, tagmapping, rendertheme, maps, routing (car, bycicle, hiker), drag the data files (*.pbf) into the window labeled "source files" and start the compiler. Well, depending on the size of the maps selected, you may now go and have one or more coffee. The maps and routing files you create this way may be imported to QuoVadis 7.3 as well as to QVM-Android V3 and QVM-iOS V3. Our compiler can create a package of map and routing files to make it easier to transport and install them to QV7.3 and
QVM- A/iOS V3 . You find more information about our new feature in our QuoVadis WiKi uner the topic
