I’ve installed the Marco Polo Touring App but cannot find my travel destination even though I followed all the instructions from the guide. What should I do? 


If you cannot find a destination in the App, it’s possible that you stopped the data update when you first started the App or delayed it until later. The App only contains a small selection of the most popular travel destinations. To ensure that your desired destination is included, please proceed as follows: Before you first start the App, please ensure that your smartphone is linked to a Wi-Fi connection. Start the App and perform the suggested data update. The data for all the remaining destinations will then be downloaded from the Marco Polo server. The file size is approximately 50MB and the download time will depend on your internet connection. After the download has completed, you can then select your chosen travel destination and download any of the tours with tour descriptions and offline maps. 


Tip: Please ensure that your smartphone has sufficient available storage. If you’ve delayed the data update after the initial start, the App will remind you to run the update after a while. If you don’t want to wait until the reminder message appears, simply delete the App and re-install it from the start.
