Bug Description


thanks for the app!!

I tried to play with the offline map mode but did not went very far.
But, the thing is that I forgot I did that. And when I opened several days later the app, I was not seeing any map (just a grey screen). This is totally natural because the phone was still in offline mode and I have no offline map. But I forgot that. I was thinking there was a problem of internet connection to get the map, so I ended up not using unav. It took me a while to understand the problem...

So, is it possible to remind the user that if he sees no map in offline mode, it is because of the offline mode with no map? Like putting a reason on the screen for the reason why there are no map being displayed.

Thanks !

Hi Victor, thanks for your feedback!

I don't like popups then, it's complicate a fix for this in a nice mode.

Maybe change the blue of the header to another color? :/

Hi Marcos,

thanks for the response.
I am not sure I understand what a popup is.
I was thinking that instead of displaying nothing and leaving just the grey background with the unav logo, it would be possible to add a message in the map location saying 'no map available in offline mode'.

May be a "disconnect icon" on the bottom of the screen
