    Hey Toby, 

    I can see how that would be a helpful feature. A couple notes on this request:

    • If you download another map with additional zoom levels, the app will know not to redownload information is already has and will only download the additional zoom data.

     

    • After you download maps and go offline, you can adjust and view different maps on the main map screen just as you would if you were connected to WiFi. This way, if you download an additional layer as a separate download, you can view it atop any of your other map downloads.

    I do take advantage of the "don't re-download", but if I don't want to end up with a ton of overlapping map sections, it means I need to rename the old one (or pick a different name for the new one), wait for the download to complete, delete the old one, etc.  Again, this is not a high priority, but it might be worth sticking in the feature request backlog.

    I second this request.  I am getting ready for a trip and downloaded an area and then I found another layer I wanted to download for that same area.  I ended up displaying all the layers I wanted and re-downloading by matching the existing downloaded area and then going back and deleting the old download that was missing the layer I wanted.  Would have been very nice to just select the downloaded map and select the layer to add.

    Especially for large areas. It is really inefficient to have to re-download 650MB of data just to add a layer. Please add this feature!
