Offline Maps: Added automatic URL updating – version 1.4.0

I released version 1.4.0 of the application last weekend.

What’s changed

Not much actually, but I think that what did change will make the application more usefull.

It is now possible to change the base-URL used by the Google Server for obtaining the tiles. Google has the habbit of changing those URL’s quite frequently. And allthough nothing fundamentally changed about how the URL is composed ever changed, it did result in not being able to get the tiles and thus making the applicatio rather useless.

All that has changed now. For those who now how to get at the base-URL (and I will post on how to do this later on), they can just adapt the base-URL used and save the new values.

For those less technical, they can retrieve the latest base-URL from the Offline Maps page on this blog by the click of a button.

Find out how on the Offline Maps page

Enjoy !!!!
