Missing offline search function and routing

Jainan , 11.10.2010, 14:12

Search offline for a location

The new 'search online for a location' is useful, but it would be much more useful if I could search my offline maps for a location (eg. street name) even when I'm not connected to the internet. Other map apps, such as Topo Maps and OffMaps2 offer this feature. Often when travelling and finding my way around a city, I don't have a network connection. So could the location names be downloaded with the offline maps?

Yes, the ability to contruct a route would be good, especially for the ipad. The route could then be sent to another mobile device to be used out in the field.

I agree with Jolin.
It seems that, even offline, the App queries something on the net (Nominatim I suppose). But when I am abroad, I switch off the internet connection of my device. Therefore, it does not return anything.
Would it be possible to query the offline database on the device ?
