Hi radioman,

Im using the demo from build   3d7d904be673   to prefetch some Google Hybrid Maps , but the maps that i see in Gmap Demo are different from those that i see in Maps.Google.Com    

In particular, there is cloud cover on the images from GMAP with is no longer there on Maps.Google.Com ,   have the MAP numbers changed again ?

lng   -0.181413888931274


Its in Ghana, West Africa,  look at the GOLDEN TULIP HOTEL,  in Gmaps, there is clould cover, but on Maps.Google.Com you can clearly see the hotel and pool.

Im going there tomorrow, and doing a demo to some companies in Ghana , and was preparing the prefetch data when i noticed the images from Maps.Google.Com  were much better.


in Maps.Google.com   5.59346687644094,-0.181413888931274     and it also looks like Maps.Google.com now also have a better zoom level too

i've just checked it, the the view is exactly the same, i guess you see the tiles from your cache, try delete it before prefetching

Yes, i deleted the DATA.GMDB  and now i have the correct images, but what i don't understand is that i was using SERVER ONLY, so i thought that the titles would be forced to download rather than

get from the DATA.GMDB file.


But its working now,
