Make download process from store even more robust

In a 970MB map download there were quite a number of times (5?) when I checked progress to find the download suspended with this notification center error:

b0c8f2a3fc21afc71df147525fc93454

I had to continually check progress over the few hours. If I had left the download to occur overnight I would have found in the morning that it was suspended - waste of time. Fortunately each time I was able to resume the transfer. To credit of Locus it is clear the process is already robust, but could it be improved further - when an "unexpected problem" occurs, still display this error but additionally continually retry with 10s pauses instead of waiting for human intervention to resume.

Good day Andrew,

hmm and isn't better to download 1 GB huge map on some more stable and mainly faster internet wi-fi connection?

Weird error btw.

Some "auto-retry" logic is of course possible, but I still hope that such problems are quite rare. If more users has such issues, please vote here so I know and have a reason to improve this. Thanks

~970MB = Italy map, so probably no more or less than an average download size for many users.

5 errors = maybe 1 in 30..45 minutes.

Internet connection = home = wifi.

Faster connection --> move house? No, the connection is good enough. PC web page errors (timeouts) are quite rare.

I then bought ~470MB Switzerland map and no further download errors.

"auto-retry" would be equivalent to Locus tapping the button below:

I couldn't find any useful reference to "SSL 0xaeeb5400 IO error".
