MurrayM: I thought the update was going to let you cache entire countries? I tried caching Auckland and it said the area was too big, which led me to think that maybe the latest update that came out a few days ago isn't the big update that they were talking about and it's yet to arrive.


I cached Auckland from Warkworth to Huntly

Really?  When I tried it I just zoomed out a fair way and tried to cache a big area.  Maybe I was trying to get too much, I'll go back and try again.


Yea, see here, there's a screenshot bundled in with the article

Thanks guys, I tried again and got from about Warkworth to Huntly and it said it was 85MB. Although not much good if it doesn't work with Navigation.

I cached the map of Whangaparaoa peninsula and Rotorua the other day, only came to a few MB, works well.

Yeah disappointed that it doesn't work with Navigation. Meh don't mind using a bit of data, and also have Navigon now which works pretty well.
