Downloading of maps stalls
The downloading of maps pause when the iPhone/iPad Auto-lock (screen turns
off) feature activates or when you change to a different app. So best to
temporarily disable the Auto-lock feature and stay on the OZtopo app until
all maps are downloaded.
Downloading will resume when you return to OZtopo.
Can I load just parts of Australia?
Yes. Each State can be downloaded, removed or re downloaded at any time.
However we recommend for ease of use to download all of Australia during the
initial installation. It may take 1-1.5 hours depending on your
Map downloads can only be done when connected to Wi-Fi.
We made this decision based on the size of the map (3.8GB) which may be a
significant cost to download via your mobile phone plan.
Is there a demo version available?
At this stage no but it is under consideration
Why do we state this: "Note: Continued use of GPS running in
the background can dramatically decrease battery life."
iPhone/iPad have many battery saving techniques. One is to turn off the GPS
receiver when not in use. However if you using a Navigation APP, it needs
continuous access to the GPS receiver to operate. This may result in higher
than normal battery usage. Note that when the iPhone/iPad screen dims,
OZtopo will continue to operate, eg collect track log data.
Do you offer discounts?
Short answer is No. We think that OZtopo is priced correctly offering great
value. Tip: if you purchase an iTunes card at your local retailer eg
Woolies, Coles, JB when they are on special at 20% or 30% off you can then
use it to purchase OZtopo via your iTunes account. eg Purchase $100
iTunes card at 20% off at Woollies (your cost $80). Redeem your card onto
your iTunes account - you now have $100 credit in your iTunes account.
Purchase OZtopo using your iTune account balance!
