New to forums....but not to life !
« on: March 01, 2014, 08:15:36 AM »
Hello,  bought myself a nexus 7 and so far am very pleased...BUT...having a problem with Chimani offline maps.
They say they are downloaded and verified but don't exist in the Chimani map folders, and not available offline.
My Nexus spent 26 hours downloading Olympic Natl Park (there are a lot of files!) but.....nothing ! Same with three
other maps.
I expect to be told that I should post this somewhere else, but I'm VERY new to forums,........ and getting OLDER by the day!

Can anybody help?

I guess no one has that app or problem. If you go to the google play page for chimani there should be a web page and email contact for the developer.

Thanks Matt....I tried contacting them via their website a while ago, but no reply.
Tried again yesterday, hopefully I'll get an answer, even if its one I don't want to hear!
For the moment it looks like I'm alone in the wilderness !!

I hope I can get this sorted as I wanted to use the maps when I visit the US again this year.

Thanks

Welcome. Don't know what chimani is, so can't help out.

If you know the names or extension of the files that were downloaded, you can search the tablet with a file explorer to find which download folder they're in. Emulated, legacy, etc. I've had to do that to locate PDF magazine files that a viewer didn't see.

Thanks for your welcome.  I did find the folder Matt....osmdroid...contained lots of Chimani folders but not many files.
I deleted the folder and started again. This time I think I may have sussed it out. Files say they are downloaded
but not ALL of  them are, so I just download again and it picks up where it left off. Zoom in on the maps and when offline hey presto!
.....so far!   BTW, Chimani do maps and info for many of the US National Parks.    Thanks again for the comments.

Chimani update..
Well it didn't last!!
Have now received a reply from Kerry Gallivan CEO of Chimani explaining there is a bug in the Android
version of the app which they are rectifying and hope to have it fully implemented before National Park Week
in April !   
I'll let you know!
