android nav/mapping app

I've been using mkgmap (gmap.img) & a garmin device for my motorcycle navigation and tracking, but since that device is dead I'm looking to make the switch to android.   I've been using locus and openandromaps for my mtn bike nav and tracking, and that has been great for that, but they don't distinguish between a motorized trail, a mtn bike trail, and a hiker only trail and that is a requirement for me.   So I'm looking at my options.

It seems kind of backwards, but continuing with mkgmap, garmin.img maps, and an android app might be the easiest.  The only android app that I've found that can use these is oruxmaps.  I used to use orux, but switched to locus quite a few years ago.

The other options that I've found would be
- Learn how to use mapsforge to create my own .map maps & use locus or any of the apps that use that format
- Learn how to use OsmAndMapCreator & use OsmAnd
- Find prebuilt maps that make the motorized/nonmotorize/hiker only distinction

I'd also like to use the same map on my linux desktop.   Currently use qmapshack & it seems to be superior to anything else, but it can't read the mapsforge maps, or the OsmAndMapCreator maps.

Other options?  Suggestions?

Thanks

You could try https://graphhopper.com/maps/ (amongst others) to create gpx tracks, I'm sure there is a dedicated motorcycle mode.  And navigate them with OSMand+.

No first hand experience using it but maybe https://kurviger.de/ (seems to have an Android app).

Thanks, but creating GPX is easy, it's the map piece I'm missing.
