I gought a Digiland tablet at Best Buy and it's running the Go app, but I can't get maps to load in the app connected on WIFI at home. I'm not an Android guy. Can anyone help with some setting or ??? I read in other forums that a few had these and specifically asked if maps were loading and they said yes... So I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong.

I'm just leaving this for future reference for someone. I got it working. I had to update Google Play Services. (Which is totally confusing, but I did a google search and found a way to do it. It doesn't show up in the google store, (Google Play Services) unless you search in CHROME and then it shows up. It shows up on a regular google search. And then you get the update button. I you just search for it in the google play store, it doesn't show up. Once I did that, Maps started working in the Go App on this Digiland DL718M tablet.

Glad the issue has been sorted out. Definitely look to upgrade to a much newer and higher-performance android or iOS tablet, with maybe even a bigger screen, for a more comfortable viewing experience during flight.

Good luck with your many upcoming flights!

Glad to hear that problem has been solved and thanks for your sharing. It is also helpful for some android devices which cannot show the map correctly.

I have an iPhone 6. This is not my primary device. I just wanted to try something with a larger screen.

That being said, in the end I did not get the Digiland Tablet working. Yes, maps loaded BUT THEY ARE UPSIDE DOWN.

Ooops.

Turns out this device does not have a real internal compass so GO maps load upside down. No way to correct it, so I returned it.

Can you post a video clip, you don't need to load any maps. The map should be there automatically in the map screen. Then to cache, just move the map to your flight area and it's cached.

Seems like it "wont" remember the cached maps. I've done it while on cellular and wifi on both flying location and home. Everytime it doesnt load and just shows the grid and flightroute. All settings for location is as needed i think so running out of options. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Open the app and expand the map view and make it outline your flying area then close the app and go to that area and open the app.
If it doesn't work on your Xperia, can you try a different device.

Hi again Ken! I never get any maps just grid while in app. So it doesnt matter where i am, as i've tried on both wifi and cellular but no result what so ever. It's like if there is something blocking the app from loading the map.

To post a video, just upload one to YouTube and post the link to it.

it must be your device, you have the GPS turned on in the device correct?
And you are not zoomed in too far?
Does the Google maps app bring up a map?
