Hi all, I'm a new member and having trouble downloading a Trek to my Samsung tablet (Nuytsland Nature Reserve). I click on the download button which takes me to 'Map Data Downloads' where I select OziExplorer and click on Download. An advise comes up telling me I will be prompted to save download. That screen then closes but when I go to check the download it tells me it has been unsuccessful. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello Rob

I just tried on Galaxy S3 Tab using the supplied "Internet" Browser App (icon a blue earth) and the download failed for me also.

I then tried using Firefox browser and it worked so it would appear the issue is with the "Internet" Browser App.

So as a workaround would suggest downloading Firefox Browser app (free) (or Google Chrome (assume that works but haven't tried).

Not sure if it is something missing at ExplorOz end - will advise David and see what he says.


I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

Thanks Greg, Firefox did the trick but when I try & open the download I get 'cannot open file' - any ideas?
I use the tablet with OziExplorer for navigation.

I am having difficulty with widows explorer on PC and Samsung Galaxy as well as Samsung phones for a number of web sites. So I switched to google chrome with no issues.
