Good day Wayne,

in case of really huge maps, first initialization may take some time. Did you tried to wait a few minutes? How big is your MBTiles map?

Hi Menion,I think I downloaded too many maps,the size of which I'm not sure,but probably too large.Over 1000mbs for sure,it just drops out after about 5mins.Have I caused the problem?How can I fix it? Locus Pro says"UnrollingOffline maps".Locus Pro is open underneath Initialization screen.Map:NSWGeologyPlus.mbtiles.

Thank You

Wayne.

Good day Wayne,

really suggest waiting a little longer. Some huge maps on slower Android devices may take up to half an hour. Start Locus, leave it for a while (maybe connected to power source) and take a rest. Hope this helps!

Hi Menion,

Thank you for the email,I've cleared one problem on my Samsung 4s and Locus Map Pro,but it still won't load offline maps.I have received an email from Geology NSW and they may have a solution,Hopefully.I'll do what you suggest and see what happens.

Why don't you come to Australia,we need good IT people like you here,with your great expertise?

Thank You

Wayne.

Good morning Wayne,

oki, please let me know if there will be something new. Maybe a sharing of the problematic map with me may help to simulate issue & solve (in case, the suggested solution won't help).

And Australia ... hmm sounds good, I'll be thinking about it. Btw. skilled people are all around the world ;).

I've solved the problem Menion,Simplified NSW Geology finally loaded after 3 attempts.The problem I believe is what you had said earlier,that the age of the phone and it's speed in downloading was making Locus Pro time-out the initialization process.It's now good,thank you for your quick reply.

Please think about coming to Australia Hueawi is coming to us in Australia,there could

be an opportunity for yourself,to explore.

Best Wishes,Wayne.
