Well I dont have navdroyd but I assume it works the same way as mapdroyd....

You download the map data inside the app itself on your phone. Press 'menu', 'Manage maps' and chose the download you want.

The map data comes from OpenStreetMap (originally) but you don't need to download it from here yourself.

The neat thing though, is that when you see things which are missing/wrong you can edit the map on Make corrections and eventually (with a delayed update cycle) you'll see your improvements inside the app.

Yes i know i can download inside that app . But the map available for Malausia is quite poor . So i wish to be able to download a complex Malaysia map and put in in my sdcard to be use by my navdroyd , but seem like it won't works ... Anyway , thanks for your concern

Yeah well that means you want to be able to use a different datasource for the navdroyd software. You could ask them (so you're asking the wrong people here) but I can tell you that it's unlikely to be possible. Navdroyd works only with OpenStreetMap. They've developed the system to run with their own data format, which is created as a conversion of OpenStreetMap data on their servers.

The other option is to look at making the Malaysia better in OpenStreetMap. Anyone help with this! See WikiProject Malaysia
