how to determine vector map's version?

Georg D shared this question 5 months ago

Hot can I look up which mapsforge format version a vector map has? This is e.g. relevant for automatic map loading as mixing vector maps v3 and v4 does not work (

In Maps, the icon sometimes shows the version, sometimes not. In Maps > ... (next to a map) > details the format version is not visible.

basically, there is no exact method how to find out the mapsforge version of the vector map. You can use only the map icon when:

  • V3 maps have icon with small "V3" or LoMaps icon
  • V4 maps have "simple" map icon


Thanks, Petr
