What is the offline map update cycle?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Recently I made changes to the OSM data because I found several "inaccuracies" while caching. This brought up the questions:

  • What is the update cycle for Cachly offline maps
  • Do we get some sort of notification "new map data available"

Best,
David

This depends on which maps you are inquiring about. We have two map servers running:

Every 2 weeks:

  • USA
  • Canada
  • UK
  • Australia
  • Germany
  • South Africa

Longer update cycle, about 2.5 months to complete

  • The rest of the world

 

Notifications are not provided, but you can check the dates that we list for the last refresh when viewing the Premium Offline maps.

Do the maps update automatically or do we have to manually install the new maps?

Maps do not automatically update as this would be a major overhead cost if all users maps updated all the time.

Updating is up to the user.

Thank you for your prompt response.

My only issue is you cannot see what map version you currently have as there are always ticks beside the maps you have downloaded, whether they are the most up-to-date ones or not. Any chance this could be addressed?

When you view the offline map in the downloads area each one has a date of when the map was last generated. If the date is less than about a month old then it is new.
