I'm new to Windows based phones and was wondering if its possible to download Google maps and save them in the google map cache for offline viewing. Also could some one guide me to where the cache is located. I apologise if this has been covered before.

Thank you,

Akshay

It's not possible with Google Maps but with a similar application that uses maps from google.
Take a look here:

\My Device\Application Data\GoogleMaps\cache-GLM

rename cache-GLM to cache-GLM1 (or whatever)

You can then rename it (or any number of other cache files) back to cache-GLM

And view them off-line.

me three!
I wonder what happens if it's intalled to the card. Seems to me it wouldn't matter. I imagine it's a dll that steers it, but I haven't checked my registry yet. I will early next week if no one knows (and posts), any more than I (do). 4mb is more than I can lose comfortably to a data cache.

You can install GMM to the card, but it still keeps the cache on the phone. It's a HUGE PAIN IN THE NECK.

Lately I've been having trouble sending MMS messages because my phone is full. It took a while, but I finaly figured out that cache-GLM.dat was the storage hog. It was using 24MB!!!!eleven!

I deleted the file and fired up GMM. It recreated the file at 512KB. It's easy to imagine this cache file filling my phone up very quickly if it's going to increase by half a MB every time it loads a new tile.

Somebody please figure out a way to either clear this cache upon exit of the app or move it to the storage card. It sux!
