Maplayers get dowloaded on demand and get stored on a drive somewhere.

Some questions:
- Where do they get saved? Can I change this location?
- Are they permanently saved, or do they get deleted over time?
- If they get deleted, can I save them?
- Why is it that when I zoom out I see the old map and pieces from the new one ?

I've got plenty ssd and hdd space, I have very decent hardware, what I dont have is decent internet. I dont want to waste MB's for downloading the same maps 20 times over again. I'd rather just download it and be done with it.

This is a very interesting information. Maybe add the answer to the mega-faq.

Thanks!

They are stored on [CMO]\WW\Cache

Permanently saved for now. We have a request for a "cache cap" feature similar to GE, but it will have to wait until the release dust settles.

Certainly, they are plain JPG and PNG files.

The program is retaining the previous-zoom picture as a rough placeholder while populating the new batch of tiles for the new zoom. If you try Google Maps / Earth on a slow connection you will see a similar effect.

Thanks.

Hi Dimitris,
first I want to thank you and your development team for this product. It still has a lot of bugs but I'm thankful for the existence of this product.

Now to my point. Is it possible to show some kind of download indicator (like in google-maps) when your application connects to your server for map tiles?

I know this is a very low prio wish.

I hope when this feature comes, we will be able to deactivate the cap ?

Why not replace the placeholder with the new map then ?
