Thread: [Maps.app] custom MapTiles cache [PC app, iPhone GUI]

    Default [Maps.app] custom MapTiles cache [PC app, iPhone GUI]
    What this does:
    Allows the creation (on a PC) and loading (on an iPhone) of a custom MapTiles cache for Maps.app on jailbroken iPhones (tested on 1.1.2)

    1. Get the map on a PC

    GMDL: http://www.in7ane.com/psp/gmdl0.5.05a.zip

    note: Maps.app map layer only zooms in down to 1 so click Advanced and set min zoom to 1 in GMDL, or put the map in the satellite layer which goes to -3.

    or

    sample maps: http://www.in7ane.com/iphone/maps/

    2. Copy the map to your iPhone

    Copy the map directory to /var/root/Media/Maps/map_name/ (create Maps with a capital M)

    Click the map name, then Link

    note: probably does not work on 1.1.3+ due to a different path (you can probably modify and use the sh script instead from http://www.in7ane.com/iphone/lm.sh by changing root to mobile)

    Hey bro, I remember using your app for the PSP, so AWESOME!!!!! I've already got the whole of London, I will use that and try it out. Will have to see though, running 1.1.3.

    does this still let you do searches and get directions for the maps that you installed on the iphone?

    Directions do work, but you do need a network connection (Maps.app queries Google's servers to get directions). The other thing to note is that if a directions/location query makes Maps.app jump outside of the area covered by cached tiles it seems to forget about the cache and start downloading tiles again.
