Hi there!
We are glad to announce the release of the iOS app version.
Development doesn't stand still, and now the new improved version is available for installation on your devices! Every day, we work to make the iOS version more complete and as functional as the Android version. Inevitably, mistakes and bugs arise along our way, which we try to correct immediately. Thank you for your support and feedback.

Route line appearance​

This feature adds the ability to customize the width and colour of the route lines. You can configure the appearance of the route line with different settings, such as Custom and Altitude.

The functions are located here: [object Object] β†’ Settings β†’ Configure profile β†’ Navigation settings β†’ Customize route line or in [object Object] β†’ Navigation β†’ Options.

Include heading​

A new parameter has also been added to the Track recording plugin: "Include heading". Now, you can save heading information for each recorded point.


Public transport routes have been divided into types, you can find them on Configure map β†’ Transport.

Fitness and running routes were added to maps. Data for these routes are taken from OpenStreetMap project:

Files app​

OsmAnd files are now visible in the "Files" application. You can access all tracks, custom routing and rendering files through it: Files β†’ On My Phone β†’ OsmAnd Maps

Preferred terrain​

UX of options "Use elevation data" and "Select elevation fluctuation" was improved. They have been merged and renamed "Preferred terrain", which is now available for "Cycling" and "Walking" profiles.

New map style​

The style of maps "Mapnik" has been replaced by a new style "OSM-Carto" style. This was done because at the time "Mapnik" was added to OsmAnd, it was identical to the map style on, but we didn't have the resources to keep it up to date, so over time it lost similarity to the OSM map style.

If you use "Mapnik", it will be available after the update, but as a custom map style. After a fresh or new installation, you will need to manually import it for use. You can do it by downloading it from GitHub.

Added copy actions to the "Share" sheet​

Now, when you click (long, short tap) on any pointed object on the map (POI, favorite, waypoint..) and choose "Share" button on the Map Context menu, you will find the addition of copying actions. The selected information will be copied to the buffer:

Share sheet

  • Copy address - allows you to copy the address of a point to the buffer. Example from the image: KrakΓ³w.
