How-to: Offline a very large route

    we really should be allowed to download entire geographical areas at once: I often do 200-300Kms one way trips (at least once a month in summer) and even though offlining these routes usually only requires to toggle the offline button, it takes forever to download!!! Not to mention how frustrating it gets when the download fails (thankfully not too often) 

    Splitting my routes in several sections or making multiple manual downloads would be incredibly time consuming...

    @Giles, I truly agree with your point. We should be able to download the larger section without any hassle. I know this workaround is time-consuming. Our team is updating the mapbox library and working to make the offline maps download smooth and faster. I can assure you that the future updates would make that happen. We are thankful for your support and patience showed towards us.

    The picture above does not correspond to any screen on the Karoo or dashboard!

    You cannot see which areas you have downloaded or are about to download - only one area at a time is shown in a box.

    If you could see which areas you had downloaded on a route, as shown above (various sections in boxes), this would at least make it easier and give one confidence that you had downloaded all parts of the route. As it is it is a bit of a case of guess work to ensure you have covered all sections.

    Having said that, even if you could see which parts are available offline, it is still a very laborious process!  - very inconvenient and time consuming!
