There are already many requests from users to add public transport support. It would be great to start using that existing OpenStreetMap data and add/update transport schedules directly from the app. For anyone interested to volunteer, there is also a good starting point here: https://github.com/organicmaps/organicmaps/blob/master/docs/EXPERIMENTAL_PUBLIC_TRANSPORT_SUPPORT.md
πŸš— iOS update with a (finally!) working CarPlay is live. Happy driving!

Please don't forget, as there are 0 (zero, none) analytics and statistics libraries in Organic Maps, we rely entirely on your detailed feedback about issues you encounter.
A list of maps data mirrors (supported by community enthusiasts) for those in need is available here: https://cdn.organicmaps.app/

Here is the list of OpenStreetMap metro/subways validation results:

https://maps.mail.ru/osm/tools/subways/latest/
or
https://alexey-zakharenkov.github.io/subways/rapid/

You can help us by fixing red metro lines directly in OpenStreetMap. Then every @OrganicMaps user will have an updated Public Transport map (subways and S-Bahn at the moment).

Some general instructions are here:

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Metro_Mapping

And here is info how to validate a separate city:

Sorry, the latest 21.10.07 release for Android has a bug: if you clicked before on coordinates in the place info (to switch coordinates format), then you'll have a crash on startup. Only reinstall can help (but you'll loose your bookmarks!). If you have root access, then close the app and delete /data/data/app.organicmaps.app/files/settings.ini

If you didn't click on coordinates before, then it should work.

Good news: the fix is already on it's way into app stores! After updating to the latest 21.10.09 version everything will work back again.

Here is the fixed Google Play apk which can be installed manually (the same as is waiting for review now): https://t.me/organicmaps/8486 or https://cdn.organicmaps.app/apk/21100902-Google.apk
