New to navigation help

Post by Ashcox » Sat Jul 13, 2019 2:21 pm

Hi all Sorry if its already been posted before but I'm new to the whole navigation world (off road riding) I'm not technically minded and struggling to get my head around osmand I've watched how to videos but still it frys my mind :facepalm a few of us are heading to Spain in September for 12day on the enduro bikes and want to do sections of TET I'll be using my samsung Galaxy 9+ which I've already download osmand and the TET spain maps my problem is how do I crop the maps to section i want to do? do I need to do it on a desk top first then transfer it to my phone? or is there an easier android map to start with for a novice like me ?? Sorry again :D

Why do you want to crop maps ? Download the whole country (Spain) map .
Then download the tet track for that country .
Load it I OsmAnd and just ride it .
You will just be following a line on screen
Where do you want to start the track ?

I would just find a place on the track as close as possible to where you are going to start make a waypoint there and navigate to it . Then just follow the track
