Frequently Asked Questions

Need some help?

Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions about our apps. If you cannot find the answer to your question, feel free to contact our support team.

Are there any roaming charges?

As soon as your app is loaded to your iPhone or iPad, it does not need any internet access.
Please make sure that your data roaming is turned off, since the locate-me feature of the iPhone will try to connect to the internet to locate you! We have no influence on that. Use the “Data Roaming” switch of your iPhone (look in: Settings >> Cellular Data >> Cellular Data Options).

How do I drop a custom save on the map?

Hold down your finger on the map for 2 seconds. A save will appear, which you can rename, and recolor.

How do I switch the language to English?

The app language itself adapts to the regional settings of your device. Please try to change it to English and then back to the original language. Now the app should be in English.

How many maps are included when I purchase CityMaps2Go?

You have access to an unlimited amount of map downloads in the Pro Version and if you have bought the Pro or Premium in-app-purchase in the free version. The free version offers 1 free map download.

How do I delete a map?

Tap on the symbol next to the map entry and in the upcoming menu please tap on “Delete Guide”.

“Locate Me” does not work

Keep in mind that especially the first time you try to locate in a new city, GPS may take several minutes to locate you.
Also, make sure that you are using a device with built in GPS. Only iPad devices with cellular have GPS! iPod touch don’t have GPS.
If you have a device with GPS, and because GPS uses satellites, you need to have free view to the sky. It will not work indoors.
If you have a device without GPS, your iOS device normally automatically uses “assisted GPS” (“assisted GPS” explained on Wikipedia) to find your location. Because assisted GPS requires an Internet connection, it will not work if you have no network or WiFi connection, or are abroad and have deactivated data roaming. Note that “Airplane Mode” will deactivate GPS alongside WiFi and cellular in your device. So make sure you are not in “Airplane Mode” (on your device go to: Settings >> Airplane Mode). If you want to prevent data roaming, use the “Data Roaming” switch of your device (on your device go to: Settings >> General >> Network).

How do I delete a save?

To delete a save, tap on it, then on the icon next to the name of the pin and afterwards on the star icon.

How can I get rid of the ad banners in the map view?

In the Pro-Version map is ad banner free. You can download it via App Store or upgrade via in app purchase from City Maps 2Go.

Why are all my maps gone after an iOS update?

Apple does not allow us to backup the maps via cloud or with our own service. If you are registered in the Ulmon Hub, saves and bookmarks are restored once you download this map again.
