Updating Your Tablet With The Latest Map

Updating Your Tablet With The Latest Map

These instructions will allow you to update your tablet to the most current trail map for WV, VA, KY created and provided by Bob T.  This page will always link to the most current map. If you already have the current map, you do not need to update. 

Before you begin, power on your tablet and connect to WiFi.  Make sure the GPS is turned off in the Oruxmaps app and close out of Oruxmaps.  Insure you have adequate battery life to complete the update.  Perform any pending system updates before attempting the map update. To check for system updates, click the “Settings” icon and choose “Software Update” in the Settings list. Click to check for and install any available updates. We suggest you read through the instructions entirely before beginning the update.
