Hi, I love Osmand as maps app (more than Magic EArth). It’s not the best sometimes with finding specific addresses, but for navigation and all kinds of maps (hiking, public transport) for me it’s the most complete. The problem is that sometimes I need to share some location or address with friends or whatever, and I don’t know how:
- If I use the Share>Send option, the link created is something like https://osmand.net/go?lat=… and people who uses G maps (which is the vast majority) can’t open it.
- If I use Share> Copy, it’s the same problem as above.
- If I use Share> Copy coordenates, the thing I’m sending is just coordinates, not a clickable blue link (and I know people won’t open it or many of them don’t know what to do with that).
- Share> geo: it doesn’t allow to share it with a messagin app, it only tells me if I want to open this location with Osmand or Magic Share
Apart from that, when someone sends me a location (and it’s always a Gmaps location like https://maps.app.goog.gl) I would like to be able to open it in Osmand instead of opening it in Gmaps PWA (which is what automatically happens). Is it possible? Or do I have to tell people to send me the coordinates in order to be able to see a location in Osmand?
I hope there’s someone with experience with Osmand who can help me sort this out.
