motionx GPS users???
 
anybody else notice that once you get some larger maps downloaded that the memory used goes up almost 3x what it should be? The app size is about 30mb and I have downloaded about 170mb in maps yet the app is using 500mb of memory when it should be closer to 200mb.

Did you try clearing the cache completely? I suspect you have remnant data.

Interesting... I guess I haven't used it enough to experience this.

mpatch 04-08-2012 11:22 AM

Seems that once you break the 100 mb or so size this happens

This isn't to do with Apple's new Retina display is it? I fear my 16 gig 4S may soon be running out of space as all my apps update to Retina versions.

mpatch 04-08-2012 04:26 PM

No I'm using the iPhone 4. I have been in contact with motionx for a couple of weeks about this issue and they thought the last update fixed the issue, it didnt I was just checking to see if anybody else had noticed.

That's interesting!

According to the MotionX app, I have about 510MB of downloaded tiles, and 61MB in the map cache. But Settings -> General -> Usage reports 1.5GB of storage by MotionX.

I'll be sending them an email for sure, the more vocal we are the more likely they are to fix it. :1drink

MotionX support responded to my email overnight:

Hi Abhi,

Thank you for contacting the MotionX team. Our team is aware of the issue you described, we believe we have a fix in place for this issue in the most recent version of MotionX GPS.

After updating the app please launch the app and fully close the app about 5 times. To fully close an app, double click the home button to open the multitasking tray. Then, press and hold an app icon until they begin to shake. Touch the red button that will appear on the app icon and it will close. (Make sure not to do this on the home screen, just the multitasking tray, or you will delete the app entirely). After you have opened and closed the app about 5 times please have a look at the size of the App, does it still look bloated?

If it does, can you please download the free computer program iExlorer http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/

Once you have the program on your computer connection your iPhone to the computer via USB and open iExplorer. Select Apps->MotionX GPS. Now please look at the Library, and then to your Caches Folder. Do you see a large file in this folder?

I look forward to hearing from you.
I have run through their fully-close-and-relaunch-five-times process, and it restored about 100MB of the extra disk space.

Now I'm trying to use iExplorer to find where the extra disk space is... but it's incredibly slow going (iExplorer sucks!). I'll keep everyone updated. :-)

mpatch 04-09-2012 03:32 PM

They also had me use iexplorer and it kept crashing on me

GPS drive will let you store up to 2 GB of maps. Clear your map storage and it should drop back to normal. To check how much you have cached got to menu then settings then to map settings an look at storage used and if you want you can clear stored maps and change how much you want memory you want to use to store maps.

Storage used 130.1 cleared checked General > Usage > GPS Drive 124MB now.
Thanks.

Thanks.

That still seems pretty large considering the app is only like 20mb. Let me play with mine for a min and see if it's an issue with both of the motionx apps.

But the size of the app is irrelevant. It's the size of the maps downloaded and cached that constitutes the bulk of the reported size.
