  1. I’d love to download the maps for offline use. Why is this not available?

  2. I don’t know what GPX file should be imported. But I tried to import a route from various websites (including GPSies) and application keep saying that it doesn’t contain a track.

      • my bad, it works that way. why it doesn’t accept a gpx route? this could be helpful to export routes from other systems.

        • GPX Route and KML support will follow in one of the next versions. 🙂
