Cache entire map of a city or state

This is a very cool app, kudos for the team that worked on this. I found the app very useful.
I am trying to cache an entire city or state to the street level zoom.
For example I tried to cache the entire city of Palm Springs, CA.
I selected the desired the area by clicking Alt + dragging the mouse. Then I zoomed to the street level and waited for all the tiles to be cached. There were like 450+ tiles.
After this I disabled the internet and opened in cache only mode, I can see the city fine at zoom 14-15 level, but as I zoom in the streets appear blur. Happened the same when I tried to cache the entire state of Nevada.
I also tried to export and import the city and state caches with the same result!!
Appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance

Thank you, Now when I click prefetch it is looping through each zoom level to download all tiles, it didn't do that yesterday for some reason.
Where does the program store the downloaded tiles of the prefetched area? After it is done prefetching and all zoom levels can I click on export to save the file?
Also can I query for a street from the exported file?

Thank in advance

you can click 'open cache location' and just copy the files, import/export would work, but copy/paste is the fastest way

Thank you, Can I query a street from the copied/exported cache file??

nop, it's tile only cache

Ahhh, bummer, very good product nevertheless. Keep up the good work.
If I click on the cached map can I get the co-ordinates?
Thank you

it doesn't matter it's cached or not, it's the same map, you can get the coordinates
p.s. all geocoding queries are cached too

How do you zoom to the cached area after importing or copying the db file??

I'm trying to do this, using prefetch of an area to use only cache. (Last hot build version, demo windows app)
All zoom tiles of a non visible area are prefetch (server mode, because in cache mode can't prefetch nothing). Then I change to cache only and try to go to the coordinates or moving with the mouse, no tiles are shown.

Any tip?

Great job.

works just fine for me

OK, more info... the only code I modified is on click event for prefetch an area that is not visible (not the actual selected nor visible area)
OpenStreetMaps for provider.

Set zoom to 15 in other planet area, set cache mode, clear cache, set server mode, prefetch the non visible area (dialog ok, x of x), set cache mode, set coordinate and press "go to" button.

is you set mode to ServerOnly it wont work, you have to use ServerAndCache mode

It's really a great application!
I have a question. I can't find downloaded files after prefetching has been finished. Where are they located?
thanks in advance

P.S-> I've solved it now by clearing tiles in disk cache.

p.s. in demo there is 'open cache location' button
