At the moment you activate the GPS button ‘Tracks’—‘Start Gps’, the centre of the
cursor will mark your position. If you move the map with your finger, this feature is
disabled for a while (configurable) after which the GPS will resume the map tracking
using the GPS. When you activate the GPS without recording a track, the GPS will be
turned off if you leave OruxMaps in order to save battery.
The next status is initiated when you start/stop recording a track by using the button
‘Tracks’—‘Start Rec’. This can be clicked directly and it will switch on the GPS
automatically. When you are creating a track, the GPS is not turned off eveb when you
leave OruxMaps, so be careful, because it uses quite some battery power! Once there is
a GPS fix, the track you are making will be drawn onto the map and the dashboard will
display the information associated with the current track. If no track was started, a new
one will be created automatically. If an existing track is loaded onto the screen, you wil
be asked whether you want to continue (new points are added to the last segment of
the track), start a new segment, or if you want to start a new track.
Let's dedicate some words to saving battery power:
The GPS settings allow you to configure three parameters:
minimum time between GPS measurements. The higher, lower battery
minimum distance between measurements.
maximum precision to record the received position.
The first parameter is the one that is most relevant, since Android can switch off the
GPS chip during the intervals, which saves a considerable amount of power.
Although you can fine-tune these parameters to your liking, the button 'More – Settings
– GPS' allows you to quickly select one of the following three modes:
Normal (use the values selected in the settings)
Fast, takes a lot of GPS measurements, but uses a lot of battery.
Power saving, set GPS to 30 seconds and 80 meters. This will greatly extend
If you want to stop recording, press the button ‘Tracks’—‘Stop Rec’ again and track
logging will be stopped. To continue, you can use the same button and you will be
presented with three options:
Start a track from scratch, a new track (details as to what is a track and a
segment will be given further on);
Start a new segment (this is recommended, if it is the same travel/track).
Continue with the last segment of the current track. I personally do not
recommend doing this, it is better to split the track in logical units, segments,
each with its own statistics.
Every time you finish, the track will be recorded in the internal database. You can see
the tracks with ‘Tracks’—‘Manage’. The first track in the list is the current one. Later
it will be explained what you can do with the tracks in this list.
An icon in the status bar will indicate if you have a track loaded in the screen. To clear
the screen and remove the track (from the screen, not the database) you use the
If you wish to continue a track ( one that includes several days of trekking, one
segment per day) you can go to ‘Tracks’—‘Manage’, select the one you want to
continue, load it and then select 'Continue the track' when you tap the Record
If you have an account on MapMyTracks.com, you can send your track
data directly to the server so that others can follow your activity. This option is only
available if you are recording a track. Configure your account via 'More – Settings –
Integration – MapMyTracks'. Start recording a track, then start 'live tracking'.
You can use an external bluetooth gps, which yoy can configure under
‘More’-‘Settings’-‘GPS’. If you have configured an external GPS, a new option will be
available in the tracks menu 'Start ext. GPS'.
IMPORTANT: If OruxMaps loses contact with the external gps when you are recording a
track, the program will attempt to restart the internal gps to avoid losing the track.
Heart rate monitor:
Currently OruxMaps is compatible with the Bluetooth heart rate
sensors from Zephyr and Polar.
After you have it configured under 'Settings', two new options will be made available
under the 'Track' menu: 'Record with HRM' and 'Track – Start HRM'.
If you have properly configured the control panel, it will display the current pulse,
maximum, minimum, average and battery status of the heart rate monitor.
When you save the track, the heart rate data are stored with it. If you upload the track
to MapMyTracks.com, you will also be able to consult your heart rate data.
Heart rate data are also exported when you export the track to a GPX file.
OruxMaps can be used with various sensors ANT+. If the terminal is
compatible with Android, an option appears ‘starts ANT+’ under the menu ‘Tracks’
Cadence Sensor (bike)
Speed sensor (bike)
Sensor cadence-speed combined (bike)
Automatic creation of start/end WPT:
Set under ‘More’-‘Settings’-’Waypoints’.
This option will automatically create a WPT that indicates the start/end point of each
Automatic creation of segments:
For some activities it may be interesting to have
statistical data every XX kilometres or every XX minutes. You can configure this
behaviour under ‘More’-‘Settings’-‘Tracks/Routes’. If this option is activated
together with the above, all statistical information will be added to each WPT that
indicates the end of a segment.
CREATE NEW MAPS
There are four basic ways to get your maps into OruxMaps for offline use.
MOBAC: This is an excellent application to create offline maps from a great many
sources. More information can be found at http://mobac.sourceforge.net/
IMPORTANT: The preferred format to use is 'OruxMaps Sqlite'. Under the Mobac
settings, set the maximum map size to the highest value. If you leave the
default setting in place, an error will be produced when you create large maps
and wish to view them in OruxMaps.
Do not use drag and drop to create maps in Mobac. They currently do not work
in OruxMaps. When you copy maps to the sdcard, you need to copy THE FOLDER
which has the name of the map you created.
If you already have existing maps that have been callibrated for Ozi, .kap, .tiff,
.tfw, or simply an image file, you can use OruxMapsDesktop.
Using OkMap www.okmap.org
You can also simply use OruxMaps to create offline maps:

that you should do is make a backup copy of these files.

Vertical speed filter. The higher this value, the more stable vertical speed
will be, as it responds less to changes in the value.
