Dear Milo,

I'm sorry for troubles but what exactly mean "gsin"? Would you please describe your issue more detailed, please? I only mention that map is available only for us.

Thanks, Petr

Ahh it seems that you want to download at least whole country. The online maps are created from small images - called tiles. There is limit for TopOSM that you can download only 5000 tiles per day. Please cancel this downloading - it would take 2 months to download it and map would have several gigabytes.

Please download LoMaps from Locus Store -LoMaps has roughly 10x smaller size, you can influence the appearance by themes and there are other benefits. More about LoMaps http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.php?id=manual:user_guide:maps_locusmaps

If you really need to use TopOSM please consider downloading smaller areas. Please note that LoMaps and TopOSM are created mostly from the same (OSM ) data

Thank you

Petr

Already have purchased Lomaps, going on cross country road, and hiking trip, rather have the OSM, will keep downloading, how many zoom levels are there?

As I wrote the LoMaps are generated also from OSM - so the LoMaps and TopOSM contains same data.With LoMaps you can zoom in to level=21 but you get all details in zoom-level = 18

Ok, thanks for the information, just one more question,

Where are the downloads going, in which directory?

The LoMaps are downloaded into folder /Locus/mapsVector/<continent>
