It is, at least, the third times that a map I have download disappeared.

I have download some reguon of the standard map,  but I can no longer see them.

I can still see the road-only map,  and other maps wikipedia,  hill shades,  etc), but the standard map disappeared. 

I do not know if this is twisted to the fact that a new version of the map is available. 

Had any other user experienced such behaviour? 


I have also tried to copy an old copy of the regional standard map from a backup to the  Osmsnd folder,  but this file is ignored. 

Thank you

I don't have an answer to your main query but...

You may need to import the map instead of copying it into the folder (osmand may not have permission to read it otherwise, even in its folder). 

Hope that helps

i will assume that you have at least the version 4.1.11

Also get in mind, that sometimes some problems solved only with a clean install. Yes, this is painful, but it works if after a long time we can't solve the issue we have. At this case, i hope the user have a small download amount of data (maps). About the user personal data like favorites, routes, ... etc, this is not a problem because the app have a very detail backup / restore option. I will suggest to reject the backup of app settings, because maybe this cause the issue.

The procedure is very simple. visit android settings / apps / osmand
- stop the app, clear cache, clear data, uninstall
- run one file manager and check if the app data folder is still alive and do a manual delete
- reboot the device
- visit playstore and download again the osmand
- very important, before the run go again at android settings / apps / osmand and manually enable the permissions of 1. storage 2. location

now run the app, download the map that you said with the issue and for a small period of time test it. If you are 100% sure that you have solved the issue, restore the user data and check again. Last step, start to setup the app with your personal settings and check if the issue return.
