Notes should be added regarding the use of OpenStreetMap servers. The OpenStreetMap server is intended for demonstration purposes only and not production code. As such, OsmDroid has been banned from the OSM Tile Server. See: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Osmdroid Especially: "Note that to use OSM tiles, you need to change your user agent from "osmdroid" to your app name and maybe e-mail. " OpenStreetMap request that all production applications use either their own server or a commercial server.
