We collaborate closely with OruxMaps, which is possibly the most complete Android application for managing online and offline maps, ideal for hikers, cyclists and sporty navigators.

How to activate communication with Sicami?

It will be necessary from Oruxmaps to accept the migration to Sicami.

When Oruxmaps asks you if you want to accept the migration / data communication with Sicami, you must say yes.

In the event that by mistake you say that you do not want to accept the migration, you can go to:

  • Configuration -> Integrations -> OruxMaps/SICAMI,  then click on Enter OruxMapas / Sicami.
  • If you already had an account in Oruxmaps use the "Enter" option
  • If you did not have an account in Oruxmaps use the "Register" option
  • Accept migration to Sicami
  • Enter the necessary data and finish the registration process
  • Please check if you receive an email after this in case you need to confirm that you are the owner of that email address.

Possible communication problems with Sicami:

  • These credentials do not match our records: The problem is that the username and/or password used are not correct in Sicami.
  • User not logged in (or incorrect password): The problem is that the username and/or password used in Oruxmaps is not the same as the one used in Sicami.
  • Error 34: The password stored in Oruxmaps does not match the one used in Sicami.

Log out or change password in Oruxmaps.

To close the session or connection with Sicami from Oruxmaps you can do the following:
