  3. Unified Set of User Instructions (User Guide)

    I am a new user (one week). As far as I can tell, there is no Maps Pro User Guide or set of Instructions that a new user can use to "get up to speed" with this application. All I have found are scattered user notes, typically focused on a single feature, and a long list of updates.

    It appears that the user is supposed to be able to "intuitively grasp how Maps Pro is intended to work. That may be an OK way to go, up to a point, but for the more subtle aspects of functionality, organized instructions…

  6. Save the route centrally (on my Windows account)

    Save the route centrally (on my Windows account) and use it when
    - I am on the way with my tablet.
    or
    - I need it again some time later.

  7. Direct Routing, grid mora, meridians and parallels

    Hi,

    Maps Pro is awesome. I am replacing my aviation en route VFR paper charts by it. It is that flexible. I do have a few ideas that would transform it from a great alternative to VFR paper charts to the perfect alternative. I will suggest them beginning with the ones I believe more important:


    • Direct routing. Rather than fastest or shortest route, the route from A to B would be simply a straight line. Very, very simple. If you'd include some extra information like distance in nautical miles, and direction in true and magnetic north it would be perfect.

  8. direction in street view

    It would be very helpful to be able to know direction in street view. A simple compass indicating north would work.

  9. add offline access to Wikitravel contents

    It would be nice to get the information from Wikitravel about cities and natural areas displayed. This would make Maps Pro a very good travel guide!

  10. More informations when using waypoints in directions

    How do i see the total trip mileage, point to point mileage? Trip summary?

    When planning a trip, it is important to know the total distance and the
    mileage between stops to determine the best route.

  11. Freeform search on downloaded data

    When searching in downloaded data, you need to go through 3 different selections (city > street > buildings) and select something from what is suggested to get a good result.

    I would be better to be able to search for a street with a freeform for search such as "425 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL", so that it is possible to just copy and paste the address in one single field

  13. Integration of contacts (outlook, hotmail, gmail etc.)

    I have just a suggestion, it would be top to an option of integration of contacts (outlook, hotmail, gmail etc.) on the maps to help the professional to have a vision of their customer/prospect!

  14. Bugs/Suggestions for an ergonomic application

    I have just installed the application and I have detected some bugs/lack of functions:


    1. when I resize the map while the navigation is started, the navigation mode stops automatically; I want to be able to hear the driving instructions while browsing the map.

    2. after I resize and move the map, having a destination set and road map menu on the left open, that menu keeps refreshing over and over again at the interval of 1 second. It's a little bit annoying.

    3. I want to be able to view the map in 3D or at least the map to be resized…

  15. Change the color of imported GPX-Tracks

    Currently if you import an .gpx-Track it is shown as a blue line. It would be great to have an option to change the color, thickness and transparency of that line.

  17. Show boundaries of downloaded areas that are accessible while offline

    When zooming around downloaded maps it would be really useful to be able to see which areas have what level of tile available. A simple box over the area containing a number for maximum level of detail would be sufficient.

    What I noticed was that after downloading a high res map (level 17) of a small geographic area of the UK I could zoom out of the area and still see map coverage at a lower level, up to a certain point when there was subsequently no data available so we simply got the grey squares. Obviously, within the depicted…

  18. Simple geofencing to trigger voice alerts or activate SMS

    As I drive to fetch my son, and am reaching the corner of Street X, I want the Maps Pro to alert me to SMS my son that I am already at that corner and to get ready for pickup in 3 mins. It can also be used to remind me to drop by somewhere or do a short detour when I reach a certain part of my journey etc.

  19. Map Style selection on one page

    I switch between maps often. To switch between Google and Gaode needs a lot of scrolling.
    If the picto's are smaller, all maps fit on one page, and that makes selection of a map faster.

  20. Add ability to create new point, polyline, or polygon features, which can be drawn manually, or created via GPS.

    Add ability to create new point, polyline, or polygon features, specify attribute fields to include, which can be drawn manually, or created via GPS, i.e., standard data capture functionality.
