In calendar app, when you open an event, you can click on the location of the event, and this opens maps app.

Is it possible to configure which app is opened ? I’d like to use osmand (on android layer…), instead of the default maps app…

This is a nice question. Would love to change that as well. However I'd like to use Pure-Maps (native offline capable Maps solution with Voice-Navigation). There is a patch to make firefox browser default browser available at OpenRepos. Maybe that can be used as template to make a patch for default map handler:

I have found this


DBusInterface { id: mapsInterface

service: "org.sailfishos.maps" path: "/" iface: "org.sailfishos.maps"

function openAddress(street, city, region, zipcode, country) { call('openAddress', [street, city, region, zipcode, country]) } }

Just a wild guess: is it possible that the MimeType value in the file /usr/share/application/jolla-maps takes care for the opening of the geo info with jolla-maps and that cutting this line from the jolla-maps and pasting it into the osmand file (harbour-osmand??) would make this happen??
