This isn't a real issue with Galileo but with MOBAC and demanding to much of the OpenStreetMap servers. I ended up creating my own tile server at home and now have my own map (4 GB), just the way I like it.

OpenStreetMap is now also promoting this with a website:

Maybe worth a blog post?

Kind regards,

With the new Custom XML Map Source (http://galileo-app.com/help.html#xml_sources) you now also can use your own tile server in Galileo.
