offline map available as mbtiles
#1
I discovered RouteConverter some months ago and this is exactly what I was looking for ! Great software !

It would be great to allow displaying offline maps that are available locally as .mbtiles file. The reason I miss this possibility is that I very often have a hard time finding specific locations in the OSM maps that are easily identifiable on my paper maps (I am in Switzerland, and the difference in ease of reading between the official topo maps and OSM is enormous in difficult terrain). 

OruxMaps can display .mbtiles files with such maps. Would that also be possible in RouteConverter ?

RouteConverter uses mapsforge to read offline maps and render them. And somebody seems to have implemented a renderer for mapsforge that reads MBTiles:

Please help my to understand why the mapsforge offline maps that can be downloaded outside of and even within RouteConverter from diverse sources don't satisfy your needs? What's within MBTiles what is not inside these files?

So this means that it already is possible to use such an offline map? How would I then add it to the list of maps available in RouteConverter?

As said, these maps have a resolution and accuracy that is far inferior to the one that I would like to use (offline, available on my computer only as .mbtiles file).

Please try the latest prerelease I've uploaded. It now accepts files in %USER_PROFILE%\.routeconverter\maps which have the extension .mbtiles and offers them in the map selector if they contain png or jpg tiles. Please test and give feedback!
