      If this is a regular event, it might be useful to create a GPX file of the event anyway. Once you have that, then you can have APRSIS32 drive the route at the zoom levels of interest. It will only fetch the tiles needed to fill the display on the visible zoom level and it will fetch the tiles on the additional levels as well. I do this for trips and such.




      Best regards,

      I am getting ready to go off the wireless grid for our event on Saturday with APRSISCE32. I am working on the prefetch.

      So the area I need to prefetch is ~200 miles top to bottom. What I am curious about is when doing the prefetch does it fetch what is in my circle on my screen?
      Any tips on prefetching maps appreciated.
