thanks for your explanation. I can understand your point of view and I totally agree with you, that a lot of the features discussed on this forum are only interesting to a very small percentage of Locus users. But I would also guess that although some locus features are only interesting to some users, it´s often those users who are willing to pay for the Pro Version and for those extra features in the Locus store.
I do respect you decision, but is it really that much effort to offer the POI database seperately in the Locus Store? I am guessing that you have to create the POI database separately anyway, before merging it with the map file.
Normal users could still just download the All-in-One map package. But for me (and surely a lot of others who use openandromaps or other maps) it means that I need to download several GB of data that I don´t need (using up bandwith and also storage space on my phone). Let´s say I want to have POI data for Germany, France, Spain and England - that would be almost 5GB of Map data that I don´t need.
As stated before - I am more than willing to pay or this data. Even the same as for the whole map package - I just don´t need the maps.
