zoom and then flips to GPS location
« on: June 04, 2011, 21:12:54 »
It's probably a setting I'm getting wrong here, but every time I zoom on a distant location (i.e. not where I am now) after a couple of zoom steps it flips straight back to my GPS position and I lose where I was.

What can I do to make the app ignore my GPS location when I'm looking at a map for another location?

Bottom left corner of the screen there is a button with four arrows pointing in to a dot. When it has an orange background the map will track your location. Tap it and the background will turn dark gray, and the map will stay where you move it.

Perfect. Next question - I'm looking at a downloaded map; how do I go back to the online map? I'm pressing buttons like mad here and can't find it! I guess I should look for the manual, but... :)

The button at the top right corner that looks like a map.  Then select online, then the map you want.

That's strange. The only way this works is if I go to the Online tab and change the map type (e.g. from Google to MapQuest) and then it loads. There's no way to have a default map all the time.

But this works so I'll stick with it and change when necessary. Thanks for your help.

hi, don't understand. You change online map to any type. Then close application with back button, and when you open it, you have again default MapQuest map??

It doesn't appear to work that way for me.

1. I view an offline map
2. I go to the settings and then click ONLINE; I select GOOGLE CLASSIC and go to the main screen and see GOOGLE CLASSIC online.
3. I change to an offline map.
4. I go to the settings and then click ONLINE; now, if I leave it at GOOGLE CLASSIC then when I go to the main screen it shows the offline map; the only way to see an online map is to change GOOGLE CLASSIC to another map (e.g. google terrain); then when I got to the main screen it shows the new map.

Am I missing something here?

If all you do is select the online tab that will not change the map. You need to select a map. I think maybe there is a bug here though. If you select an offline map it does not clear the checkbox for the online selection (the reverse is not true: selecting an online map does clear the checkbox for the offline map). You can select the same online map that is still checked though (in your example Google Classic) and it works.

Thanks for your help. Playing around a bit more with it I discovered that it was not a matter of clicking on the map name but one had to actually click on the tick box to re-select the map. I see how it's working now. Cheers - and thanks for a great app!

ah little bit confusing. I keep checked checkbox next to online map because it was already selected before even when now was active offline map. I removed this pre-selected checkbox if you understand :). Glad to all works now ...
