Map data on an SD card and map preload
Customization and runtime configuration > Customizations for maps
July 22, 2014
Applies to: Windows Phone hardware development
Map data is used by the Maps application and the map control for third-party applications. OEMs can choose to store this data on an SD card, which provides the advantage of saving internal memory space for user data and allows the user to download more offline map data. Microsoft recommends enabling the UseExternalStorage setting on phones with less than 8 GB of user storage and has an SD card slot.
UseExternalStorage can be used whether or not an SD card with preloaded map data is included on the phone. If no SD card is present, the system uses internal storage until an SD card is available and then automatically switches to using an SD card for map storage. The user's ability to download map regions is disabled until an SD card is available.
SD card performance can affect the quality of the Maps experience when maps are stored on the SD card. When an SD card is used, Microsoft recommends that OEMs test the Maps experience and the speed of map downloads with the specific SD card part that will be used on retail phones to determine if performance is satisfactory.
Use the customization samples
Microsoft recommends enabling UseExternalStorage on phones with less than 8 GB of user storage and has an SD card slot.
Create a customization answer file using the contents shown in the following code sample or use the sample UseExternalStorage.xml file.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
Description="Use to preload map data on an SD card."
<!-- Enable external storage for map data on an SD card -->
<Setting Name="UseExternalStorage" Value="" />
Specify an Owner.
Set the Value to one of the following:
0 or No
Do not store map regions on an SD card.
1 or Yes
Store map regions on an SD card.
If including an SD card with the device, add the preloaded map data to the SD card. Unzip the appropriate map variant data package and copy the “diskcache” folder onto the SD card under the d:\MapData directory.
When unzipping the appropriate map variant data package, you must use a file compression/decompression utility that preserves the file attributes and timestamps. If the utility does not preserve this information, the map(s) will be treated as invalid by the OS.
Flash a build that contains this customization on a phone.
Launch the Maps application and open Settings from the application bar.
Click on the Download Maps button and verify that the expected region displays under downloaded maps.
what says this ? i don't check what we have to do to use this solution.
