Select maps (offline)

Hi

Would it be possible to have both offline and Other set up at the same time in the settings?
Then in the map Type selection, there could be 6 options:
Normal
Hybrid
Satellite
Terrain
Offline
Other

That makes it much to switch between OSM maps and offline maps  :)

Thanks,
Jacob

Hi

As I understand it the "Other" is either the Offline Maps or the tile server.
I wuld like the option to have both setup in the app and be able to select between them when on the maps page.

Hi

But I can only setup either a map tile server OR an offline map as the alternative map.
I would like to be able to switch between the ap tile server and the offline maps on the map screen.

No, I won't be doing that... UK users have a 3rd map option, plus I expect additional alternative maps in the future. So the Other option will switch between Google maps and whatever alternative map is configured in settings. The use case of someone switching alternative map selections regularly is not worth the additional complexity.

OK, your choice.  :)

I just think there is a big difference between using an alternative tile server and offline maps. I'll try to use different settings in stead.
