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.

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.
