    Trying to figure out how many square miles I can cached maps and at what level of detail. Is their some place that show you how much memory has been used?

    Thanks

    Can you give us more details? What device are you using and what are you attempting to do?

    iPad mini 2 with about 8gb of space left. I can't find any information on how large of a file the cache is or can be

    I'm using the same iPad you have. I've found I can cache a few hundred miles in any direction with no noticeable accumulated use on my iPad's memory.

    Like I said, I see no noticeable difference in my iPad's memory. I've used my map & looked at places hundreds of miles or more from where I am, gone to those places using the map with no issues. And found no more usage on my iPad memory.

    I cached a football field at a university 45 miles away with no problem at all.

    Yes, I get what you are saying. What I'm trying to figure out is their a memory buffer in the App itself? When does it get full and when do cached maps start to get written over?

    Try going to settings > general > storage & iCloud usage. A list of your apps and their usage will come up. You can manage your memory there.
