It seems that the circles are drawn as circles in the projected map.. Since
it appears that Osmand uses the same Mercator projection that Google and
other tiled map services do, a circle on the map will NOT be a circle on
the ground at small scale, and the distortion at that small a scale would
be apparent to the unaided eye. That's what I suspect is going on here,
anyway.
