no map displayed if maps stored on SD

Asked by Chris Hellin

I tried saving the tiles (from jTileDownloader) to the SD card rather than the built in memory. Then, in the terminal cd'd to the ~/.local/share/navigator.costales folder and typed:

ln -s /media/SD/Card/Tile/Location maps

When uNav is started there is nothing displayed. Following the link (maps) displays the zoom level folders correctly.

When the link is removed, a folder created and the zoom level folders copied all is good.

Not much of a bug, I would just prefer to store the maps on a removable sd card and I can't see why it doesn't work.

Hi Chris,
Yes, the OS doesn't allow to write on the SD ;)
Best regards.
