"Cache online maps" unclear
« on: February 01, 2013, 17:38:53 »
Hi all,
From the user manual:
Quote
"Cache online maps (Settings for experts) - this setting prevents displayed online maps to be temporarily saved"
Hmm, I would expect that online maps are cached, when I check the button while the manual says, that checking will prevent that.
Could someone please shed some light on this? What action does actually do what?  ;)

Another question:
For offline navigation it would be nice to be able to download maps for a certain area in the cache for several zoom levels.
Can I do this, downloading maps, or do I actually have to use it /display it to have it stored in cache?

Thanks a lot for your eventual advice.

bertus

Hello,
  this is really confusing.Thanks, description updated. By "Cache online map" is really meant store downloaded maps (cache) into storage in Locus/mapsOnline directory. When you un-check it, Locus will download maps everytime you'll want to see it

  About second part - there is ability to pre-cache some data. Method is same as for downloading but in the end, you should choose "Online shared type" - more here http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php/manual ... load_types

Somehow maybe Bertus has not yet discovered vector-maps as the ideal offline maps like here: http://gps.sebbosweb.com/
