Track file location

For each new track, a subdirectory is created in the dedicated osmtracker directory, which by default is typically on the SD/USB storage in osmtracker/. While pictures and audio annotations are written immediately into this subdirectory, the track itself has to be exported explicitly. To do so, select the track in the tracklist so you see the "Track Details", modify the name if necessary.

Still being in the "Track Details", go to the context menu and select "Export as GPX", and it will be written in the respective subdirectory. Alternatively, touch+hold the respective track name to open a context menu. (Please note that "Save" means not exporting yet. Could the developer please explain where the track is being hold before exporting.) (Edit: I'm not the developer, but it looks to be in a SQLite database if I've skim read the code correctly --EdLoach (talk) 08:02, 19 July 2013 (UTC))

OSM Map background

When the setting "OSM background" is set and an Internet connection exists, the tiles of the current position will be downloaded and shown.

If no connection exists, the map will only be shown if the tiles were previously downloaded. This download can be done offline, the directory path where the tiles are stored is "sdcard/osmdroid/tiles/Mapnik/(zoomlevel)/...". Offline downloaded tiles need to be renamed from "*.png" to "*.png.tile" as a new extension.
