French Subscription known issue in version 6.2.0

Unable to Download Tiles: It is possible to get yourself into a state where you have downloaded more tiles than the subscription allows for.
If you delete a French online saved map whilst over the allowed limit then try to download or complete a partially completed download, you will be told you are over their limit.
You will have to delete a sufficient amount of tiles to take you below the limit before you will be able to download further online saved maps.

If you use the 'edit saved region' feature, the system may not let you download all the tiles you are allowed. To work around this, you can:
Delete the old saved online region and create a new region covering the same tiles that the old region had, plus the new tiles that you want to download.
Create a separate saved online region with the new tiles.

To delete: Open the MyMaps screen from the menu, choose the "On Device" tab, and find the saved online map region. Tap on it, and in the details screen, choose "Remove from device"
