If the following message is displayed:

'This app isn't available for your device because it was made for an older version of Android'

The App can be downloaded as an APK file from the Radiodetection website. 

Please use the link below to access RD Map page



On the RD Map product page select or scroll down to the 'Downloads' section and select 'RD Map Direct Download APK'.



Once selected, the APK file will automatically download to your Windows 'Downloads' folder.

If you direct downloaded the file from our website using a new Android device such as a phone or a tablet, or copied the file from a PC to the device This is what is required to get it working.

  • Navigate to the RD Maps 1.1.0.APK file.
