Hi. I want to use the map[s] from WikiCamps - which I have downloaded - for offline navigation on my iPad mini. Is this possible?. If not can you advise what maps are available for offline navigation please. I know there are plenty for Android tablets, but I can't seem to find any for the iPad :? Cheers. Lynton

Hema have a app for iPad and Memory map have an app swell. They cost dollars but are some of the best on the market.

Lyndon we have been using wikicamps maps for more than a year now on our IPad. We travelled for three months last year very remotely and had no trouble with it. Great app. Julie

Hi Julie: Thanks very much for your very quick response.

I omitted a couple of important points in my post, viz., my iPad is new [iOS7] and has both WiFi and Cellular. Because of the latter it has GPS inbuilt.

I tried wikicamps offline i.e., on aeroplane mode. I could open the site list, etc. but could not open the WiKiCamp map. When WiFi and cellular are "switched on", i.e., aeroplane mode is off, I can open the map.

How were you able to use WiKicamp maps in remote areas, i.e., offline - no wifi or cellular? I am obviously doing something wrong.

Kind regards
Lynton

Aeroplane mode disables all radio based parts on ipad and iphone ( cell, wireless, bluetooth and gps).

So when you use aeroplane mode the app doesn't know where you are, i would say the app has to be able to receive gps to work.

I frequently use gps in plane mode. Ive used it to track planes flight path. And I run ozi in flight mode when remote so it doesn't suck juice network searching

Works perfectly offline if your download the maps and pics by clicking on the offline content in the main menu.

Download and all good without terrestrial coverage.
