    Morning all, the programme is free again today for those that want it and missed it last time, plus loads of updates free as well.

    Hymie.

    Sorry guys, didn't provide a link as i was updating maps on my iPad when the message that it was free popped up and I had to send the post from my macbook or lose my downloads queue.

    Still updating maps, will look for link when finished.

    Downloaded to iPad but doesn't say pro, then it gives you the option to download maps, are these free, don't want to click on them and get charged.

    They open street maps which are free....I use these on my bike gps and they are very good. I'm Downloading UK map now, it appears to be free..first download failed though.

    Edit: failed again..this time got to 60%

    Edit: third attempt worked:)

    We already have the Maps.Me download on our Android tablet, however, I thought the Maps.Me Pro app which Hymie posted about, was something better. :(

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    They will probably spam you with adverts for a paid version of the pro eventually!

    France. You have to download region by region...its a bit of a pain. Maps I fink quite big files so make sure you have enough memory..

    I didn't download any maps it recognized which country(gps) i was in and showed appropriate map then stored them,you can also link www.searchforsites.co.uk into it and get aires and camp sights on the maps,

    i have now downloaded this app along with the maps on my iphone, anyone give a brief guide on how useful this is ? i already have a satnav with poi's for aires etc but i know this has been rated very high in the community so would like to get the best from it. Also how do you link the url above into as for the life of me i cant see how this is done.

    Thanks in advance

    at top where you log in searchforsites, yellow box download new, click and it opens to the app page , 2 tabs colour & type of sites click what you prefer and it does the rest, you have to do it on tablet/phone not pc

    Alan,

    Alan, I tried that on my tablet, but nothing happened, so I closed Maps.Me app, tried the download again, and reopened app again. Still nothing, although I have to admit to being a bit of a novice when it comes to anything Android. ;)

    Cheers,

    Jock.
