Required Zoom Level

Can you give some indication as to the minimum number of tiles required to download to obtain all street labels for an area without having to do the max size download. Also, when offline, limit the zoom to not exceed the limit of the tiles loaded. Keeps from getting a blank screen.

Download maps along the routes

I want to be able to download the map along an entire cycling route. Maybe 200meters either side of the trail. Could this be done automatically maybe by clicking on the route? 'do you want to download maps along route 4' 'yes!!'

When out of phone coverage you can still see where you are. Would also save lots of money when using overseas.

Ideas for improving downloads.

I love the download feature for use without a network connection. Three further ideas for it: 1. Let me specify the shape of the download area. That would seem useful for 'long' cities along a river or at a coast. Particularly when their direction is along the short edge of the screen and a high detail level is required this could decrease the download size and the amount of storage space required. 2. I find it hard ...more »

Download vectors, not tiles

We should be downloading and caching vector data, not pre-rendered bitmap tiles. Vector data would consume far less local storage, and would make local route calculations possible. There is a precedent for this on the Android platform with OneStepAhead's MapDroyd & NavDroyd applications. This app is the closest I've seen to that class of proper/robust offline mapping program. Then biggest shortcoming of OpenMap is dealing ...more »
