    Problem using Park4Night offline

    I’ve just returned from a trip around Northern Europe and because I was often without an internet connection I decided to pay around a tenner to access the Park4Night app offline. I just cannot get it to work. Despite my iPad setting allowing location the app doesn’t recognise that and shows the GPS as “inactive”.

    Does anybody else use this app? What am I doing wrong? They don’t seem to have a Help section on the app

    There's a help section on the website. Presume you have downloaded the offline map and database to your device?

      Yes I have done all the requisite downloads, I can search when offline but it doesn't know where I am so I have to trawl around trying to pinpoint my nearest parking. It's doable but just a bit frustrating when I've coughed up for the offline version.

      I'll take a look at their help - thanks

        OK confession time

        I've worked out why it's not working...I didn't realise that my iPad Pro doesn't have a GPS chip (it's wifi only not 4G) which is a bit embarrassing. I assumed (we all know what that does) that the location in the settings would find me when offline but clearly not. I'm sure lots of you know this but hey - you live and learn eh

          Thanks for letting us know what the problem was! Glad you found out. No need to feel embarrassed, I'm sure we've all done similar.

            The amusing thing about this was an email exchange I had with the person who started the app. He is French and, luckily writes reasonable English but he asked me if I had
            "GPS cheap" to which I replied that no I had paid rather a lot for my iPad Pro and in no way was my GPS cheap!

            It took me 2 emails to realise my error
