Selective map and buildings installation per country
Why can't we individually select which countries we want to download maps and buildings for? Organizing the maps in a few hardcoded bundles causes lots of unnecessary frustration.
My use case: I live in Greece, and I'll be in a road trip to Italy next week. Buildings in Greece are included only in the map bundle "Europe + Eastern Europe + Turkey buildings", while buildings in Italy are only in "Europe + Iberia + Italia buildings". To get buildings in Italy I have to delete my current map to download and install your ~8GB "Iberia + Italia" bundle, then when I return to Greece I have to purge that one to download the ~8GB "eastern Europe" bundle anew... Next month I have to do the same for a trip to the Netherlands... Ugly!
How it should be: Users should be provided with a list of countries, each having three options: (i) basic (highways only), (ii) detailed map, (iii) detailed map + buildings.
I do realize that I could survive in Italy or in the Netherlands with just the maps without the buildings, it's not a life-threatening issue! :-) However, I am seriously let down by products whose software architecture is designed in a non-elegant, suboptimal, and unnecessarily limited manner. Especially when this flexibility has been available ~10 years ago (e.g., Navigon for iOS) and when it's trivial to implement.
Other than that I'm very much loving my TomTom GO 6100!
