I have a suggestion, but not sure how easy or practical it would be. 
Often when I am traveling it can be at the last minute and I do not have 
time to update my maps or database. It would be cool if the 
loadstone-gps application could connect to the point share system and 
download an update to the maps even if it is just the text file for 
later importing.

Example I take a trip in to the cities I do not have a map for this 
area. I could tell loadstone to connect to the share point system and 
download me a map of my current location with a X where x is a numjber I 
can imput for radius.  At this point loadstone would log me in to my 
account and grab the information using current location and download the 
file to my import folder.
