Add to existing downloaded map ?
« on: September 02, 2012, 11:41:20 »
It would be cool if there was a way, instead of saving an area marked for download as a new map, to have the option to save it into an existing map.

My thought process is like this: Say I drive from city A to city B. I would select a custom path from A to B and download it at a rather small zoom level, for the drive. I also would want a closer zoom of city A and city B, so i can find stuff in A and B, so I would select both cities as a block and with a better zoom. But currently I have to save each of these three into a different map file and switch. It would be much nicer if I could just put all three datasets into one map.

And as I've seen when you look at downloaded maps, Locus already supports having maps where in some places you can zoom deeper than in others, so it shouldn't be a big change.
