I will need to travel to some states that had not been previously
downloaded into my system, so I attempted the manual work-around for
the current download problem. What I did was:
o. Manually download the GNIS files from their web site
o. Unzip them, renamed the ASCII file with its historic name, and
rezipped the archive to its historic name.
o. Placed them in http_cache/
This *seemed* to work: The GNIS files were picked up and added to
datalist.txt, I was able to select the needed cities by name and
download their county's TIGER files with no problem, and I can 'Set
Address' at will into these new states.
However: None of the GNIS features for these newly loaded states show
up on the displayed maps. No city names nor Physical Features are
shown, although these items still display fine for the adjoining states
that had been downloaded previously automatically by Roadnav.
Am I missing something? Thanks.
