GMap.NET Mobile Slowly

Hi All,

It's really slowly when i run the mobile programe. When i zoom out or zoom in, need about 5 -10 seconds or more to load map tiles. Do you also have my experience? However, the speed is good when run the program.

check the second video on my mobile:

pretty fast ;}

p.s. use cached map database, loading tiles using gprs/edge is insane and special if its 500MB ;]

Hi, I'm sitting next to a guy with an iPhone app, accessing the same (fast) WMS cache server as I am using witn my HD2 running the mobile demo. We both use WiFi. The iPhone app is loading tiles much faster than I am. Do you know why it loads so slowly over the network? I do not have the programming skills to analyze the code :)

Do you have recommendations for max cache size before the app starts to slow down significantly? I'm thinking of making multiple cache files for different areas and swap at runtime when the user crosses the area limits.

Ok, that's quite large :)

I'll do some tests and post my findings in the forum.
