Hi There,

I am an Android Programmer. I want to use your Offline map service in my App. My requirement is; I have to make an App, in which I have to use an offline Map, & my App will use that Map without internet or Wifi. My basic problem is that, how can I use your offline map in my App programmatically. Do you provide any API or .jar file for the same.

Please reply ASAP & share your contact number of India if possible.

Thanks in advance. Niraj

You can check OSMAnd implementation, it's one of the best OSM apps for Android, has offline use, and is open sourced.

OSM does not provide an "offline map service" it is mainly a (geo-)data collection undertaking.

There are many ways to use OSM data offline on an android device, please have a look at


for offline OSM usage.

Do a search on this FAQ site for "android" and "offline" ...

there have been really many questions like this one from India users in the last past month ... so there you will find a bunch of hints.
