hi gynta,
  I think this should also work in personal maps directory (locus/maps). Did you tried this? Maps directory allow one subdirectory and it have also advantage that all maps in subdir works as one map ;)

it works as it should. You see directory names. Sqlite maps stored in sub dirs works as one map. This is current system for handling more SQLite maps (and for using maps bigger then 2GB which is file limit for android).

You want to have maps in list separated by black line with directory name as in vector maps folder right?

Yes, thats was i want :)
i like to select a singlemap for myself - not ALL in ONE

And..
...why i can see the map "hausfeld_breitenlee" ?
this map is not in "maps" - this map is also in the subdir, called "1st_sub"

hmm don't know :) did't you add this map manually by bottom button? Or are you sure it isn't in root map directory? It can also be some locus issue ...

yes, you currently cannot place separated maps in subdirs. There was no reason for this. I was thinking about it now, and still not big see reason for this. How much maps you have? There is simple problem with current system ... I used subdirs as storage for multi-maps. If you want to change this, there will be need some hack to allow use maps in subdir, as separate maps. Maybe some invisible empty file in subdir called ".separate" that will force not to take whole directory as one map? Will this be useful for anyone more? Because it's quite big intervention to current system ...
