Map Display Issues on Android 4.4.2 Phone

Post by redvettericci » 29 Jan 2017, 11:39

Hi Jean Michel,

After I solved my map diplay Issues on my pad i will get FA2 working on my Samsung S4 mini phone, which was doing a good job with FA1 running flawlessly.

But there is something going wrong when I want to show vector maps only or in combinaton with user raster maps.
It seems like the vector maps are only showing roads, rivers and railways, texture is overlaid by a black layer. (Pic 01)

If i activate raster maps, they are only a black area with no content.
I tried to reinstall FA2 but that didnt improoved the issue -
any Ideas?

Thanks
Richard

Hi Richard,

I must say that this is bad news. We had a couple of ocurences like this one on oldish samsung devices, but we thought it had gone away with a grphic library update.
It seems this is not the case.

Could you please post the exact references of the device (Settings > About the phone / tablet).

I assume that Samsung is not proposing any newer OS for this device ?

Ok, so I made a mistake in my subject title, I should say 4.2.2 instead.
Kernel Version is 3.4.0-876741 from 14-07-2013
Buildnumber is JDQ39.I9195XXUAMF6
Modell GTI9195
Samsung S4 Mini
Do you think that there is an OS update available and will cure the problem?

Thank you - Regards Richard!

If you have an update available, I would definitely install it, but I doubt this is the case. Samsung are terrible at upgrading their devices.
