  1. Download map for offline use around a route

    Currently, Maps Pro offers the habilty to download a map by navigating to a location and extracting what is currently visible on the screen.
    When hiking, it would make more sense to be able to download maps around a route. The way it is done now, a lot of unused map images are downloaded when it would be better to extract a smaller area, on more zoom levels.

    It would be even better if the route could be traced manually, because some outdoor journeys cannot be traced properly by Google Maps.

    Hello and thanks everyone for voting for this suggestion which is now in the top 3 for Maps Pro!

    In the last few months, there has been some big improvements in offline Maps Pro features, including:
    “Download map for offline use around a route” (http://mapspro.uservoice.com/forums/251570-general/suggestions/5905632-download-map-for-offline-use-around-a-route)
    and “Offline search for streets” (http://mapspro.uservoice.com/forums/251570-general/suggestions/5905604-offline-search-for-streets) which allows downloading offline data, searching for streets but also getting directions while offline.

    With these improvements, I believe it changes a little bit this suggestion.
    In the next version, you will instead have the hability to save directions (either calculated by Google Maps or by offline routing) as a GPX file that of course can be opened with Maps Pro at any time, wether you are offline or online
    The GPX file format is limited and you can only have tracks and waypoints but it should be good enough.

    Here are some screenshots of…

  3. Offline search for streets

    Being able to search for a street, even when offline.

    Hello everyone and thanks again for voting for this suggestion and contributing to Maps Pro,

    Offline mode is finally complete. The most requested feature on the feedback website is now available in Maps Pro.

    After 4 months of development, Maps Pro now uses the latest technologies to display vector maps while being offline. Because you can now download the data for a country, you will be able to search for a street, display Points Of Interest and get directions with text-to-speech and re-routing while being offline

    To provide the best service, this new feature comes at an additional cost. Each pack of country is only 10$ with the launch offer, 50% off! For instance the “North America – United States” pack will allow you to download all the USA states, with unlimited lifetime updates which means you can always have the latest road data!

    For more information, please check out…

  4. Display ETA / distance when routing

    Maps Pro currently shows the distance remaining to the next intersection but does not display en Estimated Time of Arrival or the distance left.

  5. Route tracing / recording (breadcrumbs)

    Route tracing – by this I mean, if I have my Surface in the car with Maps Pro loaded, I`d like to be able to turn on route tracing and it would show me a particular route I have taken on my journey. Combine that with ability to add a quick pin would be awesome.

  6. Add vias to a directions request

    I miss an option to edit a route from a to b, or an option to define a route from a to b via c.

    You see; at my way to Work there are 2 possible routes which is almost the same length, but the shortest route is also the route with a lot of tractors on, which make it the route which take the longest time.

    If I could the program that it have to go via a city on the other route, the problem will be solved!
