Hi,

I'm afraid you can do nothing except using other maps. We've contacted 4U_maps provider and he confirmed his server is temporarily down.

Dear Gabor,

would you please try to download map again? Or would you please try to display map in online mode. It seems that map already works properly.

Thank you

Best regards

Dear Gabor,

I tested the downloading map around the mentioned coordinates and I have to say that map works properly. More over the downloading system uses basically the same solution as is used for online browsing. It means that you should be able to download the map if you can display it in online mode.

Could I ask you fore more information:

- when does the mentioned error occur? Is it during downloading process (some tiles are downloaded) ?

- is there more information in error message? eg. some numbers?

- would you please try for example to download smaller area?

Thank you

Best regards

Dear Petr,

When I open the apps there is a message in online mode: there exists an unfinished download, continue?

The error; 2, title: 9047/5669/22

When I tried to download today then it stopped at 23442/58710 pictures and 9 title was downloaded.

When I open it offline a message comes up: the selected map is out of the present view, do you want to put it in the middle? If I say yes then nothing can be seen on the display.

Best regards

Dear Gabor,

I've tested the problematic tile: 9047/5669/22. This tile exists on the map server and there should not be any issue with this tile. The map server seems to be OK

Quite strange issue. Please try to restart downloading again and please send me the new error message (new tile numbers).

Maybe additional note - it's bad approach to download such huge part of online map. I would suggest to download LoMaps maps from Locus Store. LoMaps maps contains the same elements as 4umaps, LoMaps have smaller size (about 5 - 10x). For example whole Hungary has about 150 MB but whole Hungary of 4Umaps can have about 1 - 2 GB. You can change appearance of the LoMaps on the fly, LoMaps offer offline address and POI search. Please see link below for more informations: http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_locusmaps

Thank you
