Hello, Firstly sorry about my poor English. Also i am new to android developing and also to osmdroid

I managed to show my offline maps in my device. I am trying for days with no success to find out how can i save my offline osm maps with some POIS to the the sqlite database. The reason is because to make an app that when someone else get it to have the maps of a specific areas already saved in his/her device.

Is there is any sample or a tutorial?

Thank you in advance.

I have no concrete hint for you, but have a look at the Android page in the OSM wiki.

The do a search there for apps aor frameworks that can store and display tiles, maybe some of them are opensource.

For example: mapsforge can display OSM based maps and I assume also POIs ... but it uses mainly vector based maps. But IIRC it can also display own pre-rendered offline tiles.

Please ask on the mailinglist there.
