Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

In my Android "toolbox" I have OsmAnd and OSM Tracker.

Now I need some Android app (or maybe it is a way to use those 2 apps) which will allow me:

  • to import KML route for off-line usage
  • it will show me where I am in relation to the selected KML route
  • if it supports displaying OSM offline map in the background it would be awesome

So -- how to do with OsmAnd, or what is the app that can do it?

There is a guide about importing KML into OsmAnd but I believe it is no longer correct. It assumes such app OsmAndMapTileCreator which I cannot find (only OsmAndMapCreator). And the latter does not seem to have option for importing KML.

I upvoted you, but didn't accept the answer because OruxMaps is far from OsmAnd usefulness, so I pursued another approach. See below.

Finally! I found the way :-) Ok, here are the steps how to make the happy marriage of 2 different worlds:

  1. create a route in Google Maps for example
  2. export it to KML
  3. use GpsBabel to convert KML into GPX
  4. use FTPServer to upload GPX into /scard/osmand/track
  5. run OsmAnd
  6. define view / GPX / select your uploaded GPX track

Voila. You will see your track over OSM map.
