I can’t remember or indeed find the forum member who suggested to another member that they should get a MiFi to overcome map cache (or that should be non cache re the version of mapping [Here Maps] in Litchi on CrystalSky).
I’d never heard of MiFi - other than a fruit flavoured lolly with ice cream in the middle, oh no that was a Mivvy , so I investigated. It’s a device that creates a WiFi hotspot so that you can access the internet, etc., by setting the WiFi on your particular device to the one produced by the MiFi device.
After much research I bought one yesterday from the Maplins closing down sale - a TP-Link M7530 for just over £52 (https://www.maplin.co.uk/p/tp-link-m7350-4g-lte-mobile-wifi-a01yj). It covers 2G, 3G and 4G, can operate at either 2.4 or 5 GHz, has up to 8 hours continuous use from its battery, and you can run up to 10 devices from it at once. Slightly larger than a credit card, quite a bit thicker. It’s unlocked so you can put any network SIM card in it.
Anyway, took it out this afternoon in this glorious sunshine onto the Rivington moors, in the middle of nowhere, with an EE data card installed, and run the Mavic Pro. Set on 5Ghz, got a 4G signal so loading and moving maps was a breeze on the CS both in Go4 and Litchi. When I connected my IPad I was able to download and cache maps from all over Europe even! It’s gong to be a fabulous asset on my Band of Brothers trip next month - get a data sim for France and Belgium, and in August in the USA, and waypoint missions on Litchi will be a go!
Whoever you are sir, I am very grateful for introducing me to the world of MiFi .
