    I normally operate PE in German. Occasionally I also load the English Wkipedia and Wikipedia articles by changing the language settings temporarily. For the last few months this does not work any more. PE gives a message that “Some maps were not loaded now, but will be automatically at a later time” or some such. But that never happens. Trying the same with French still works = triggers the download immediately. What happens here? Can I fix it?

    I just downloaded the english wikipedia & wikivoyage data, and it worked well.

    This might be a download cache. I would suggest the following:

    • switch wikipedia language to english
    • download a new map (or delete one of your maps and redownload it).

    does this help?

    @geomagik Besides: while checking this bug, I hit a region (Italien islands), where I did not see any wikipedia articles. So I thought I could reproduce. But at more carefully checking, I found that’s just the ever lasting problem of parsing all different wikipedia coordinates formats. (not only OSM is a messy place, but wikipedia as well).

    maybe the list below helps you to improve further on this!

    cheers, nounours

    Edit: some more examples!!!
