Download of webmaps

Postby lucian0504 » Fri Nov 12, 2010 5:41 pm

I would like to download webmaps to Pathaway 5. When the mobile device is connected to the internet via ActiveSync, one can choose the kind of maps (openmaps, x-traverse, google etc), but nothing more (e.g., defining map region, resolution and so on). Tapping ok, simply closes the window and nothing is downloaded.

No help is found in the manual and there is no help function in the software.

What is going wrong?

Kind regards

There is not bulk download capability since it violates most map providers usage restrictions.

You need to go back to the map screen and scroll and zoom around the area you would to download the map tiles into the cache.

It doesn' t work. In the meantime I have an webconnection directly via the phone. When trying to download webmaps there is an message "error downloading map" on the screen. Same when trying to download Google (satellite, earth) or openstreetMaps or opencycleMaps. Downloading Google maps results in a blue screen, without maps.

Frustrating...
