    If you arent using Newsgroups you are definitely not Old Skool....Newsgroups are Oldest Skool......

    The major advantage of newsgroups is

    1. The files don't get taken down for years so you won't get the "File not found or removed" message as is the case of a lot of the other links for maps right now. (United States 890.4234 for example)
    2. 1 person is only required to upload to a group...no matter what usenet provider anyone uses, if they have that group, the upload from that 1 person will serve everybody

    3. 1 Person can release a map to many groups on Usenet with a single upload
    4. The downloads are at full speed....Im yet to see that from these free user "rapidsharing" http sites...
    5. You dont have to install that awful JDownloader program....

    Well I finally took the plunge and paid for a block account on blocknews.....................................dam! its fast compared to file hosters and my favorite albums are also available when I haven't been able to find them for ages. Thanks CillyCat for the heads up and tutorials on this one, it's much appreciated.

    This is caused by 2 reasons. There is something wrong with the upload or your News server is crap and does not propagate all the parts properly. You need to subscribe to a good reliable news server like Astraweb etc.

    Also to avoid problems with downloads that have one or 2 missing block look for downloads that include .par or .par2 files. These can be used to rebuild incomplete files with programs such as Quickpar

    All the NZBs I post here include .par2 files in case your News Server doesnt pick up all the parts....

    Not Entirely Correct. Incomplete files can be caused by incorrect uploads but are more commonly caused by News Servers Not getting all the parts. IE The Files May actually be Complete on Astraweb News Servers but not Complete on Tera News News Servers for Example....


    This is not so much a big problem with Premium Services that offer long retention times such as Astraweb or Giganews etc etc but is common for ISP provided news servers or "free" news servers.

    Had to laugh at all the "mis-information"......i've seen in this thread. I truly understand that
    inexperience often leads to frustration and then the whole process is pure crap [cause you still didn't grasp the function]

    Imlost obviously took the amount of proper time to learn the system, and he will be grabbing stuff
    at speeds most of you will never see in a lifetime of leeching. What appears to be confusing is
    actually quite elementary.

    If anyone's come across the new USA map for Android.....please send me a love letter

    Seen that page, but not seeing anything related to an actual map dl [which is 2.4GB]

    Loaded the TT app on me droid, and the app launches just fine. Then directs you to begin the maps download.
    The servers must be jammed up with leechers, cause it errors out at about 900MB ea. time

    A NZB for this 2.4 gigger of a map would sure be the cats azz



    BEDTIME: hey wheel.......since you directed me to the pay-site PLAY, I'm thinking
    you might be possibly confused as to what exactly a NZB is. PLAY certainly ain't
    gonna be listing NZB's on their site. I'm confused that you're confused.


    G'nite.....all

    I am not confused. Downloaded several hundreds of GB's from the newsservers.
    With this app, have patience
    TomTom servers are extremely busy. Map download through the app takes normally some 2 hours.
    Usually you can sit back and relax.
    Never interrup the download, it will unfortunately restart from sctrach.
    There is at this very moment no other way to get the map incorporated into the app.
    Don't forget it's version 1.0 and cracked within 24 hours.
    Direction to google-play was only to give you the app details.
    I gave you the nzb name.

    And please don't blame the messenger.
    Good luck

    In the meantime Blackcrowned prepaired a sd-card version for Europe, so including the map.
    Ask him to do the same for the USA version.
    And last but not least somebody should than upload it to the newsgroups (usenet) and make
    the nzb available.
    Hopefully another forum-member will write you a love letter.
    Make sure you have a valid subscription to a payserver!

    It looked like ....you were indicating there was a NZB for the map.

    It appears, you were writing about the little 25MB program file [i've already got that]

    The problems I have noticed so far is that some films I have downloaded require a password ( normal thing of a link to try and sell something but no password) and also I sometimes think I have all the files required for a complete download but only get a very small portion of it so have to look for different links.

    I must say that, overall, I am pleased with what I am getting at the moment and would recommend the service. I prefer to struggle through on my own and ask questions when I have tried everything that I can think of first. I can't get on line much at the moment so my 200gb will probably last some time. I am no spring chicken myself at 64, but like many here have been around for a while and don't mind trying anything. I think another download host has gone today as many links are timing out, (Rapidgator) so NZB is probably going to become even more usefull.
