Compile for armv7

Reported by: vladimir kondratiev Owned by: cp15

Description

Currently provided binaries for Android are for armv4 and armv5te. However, most recent phones use processors with armv7 instructions set and neon vector instructions.

When compiled for armv7, code should run faster. Please, consider adding armv7 binaries.

Hi,

we considered that, but in the moment it's to much overhead to make armv7 packages. Besides that navit only using few floatingpoint operations, so neon will not help this much.

  • Milestone changed from version 0.5.1 to version 1.0

We can compile for "arm" and "arm64" as the android NDK provides support for it. We try to target arm64 in the future, but for now it does not make much sense. I will set this on the todo list but remove it from the milestone.
