    I started adding functionality to use a regional online public transport & bike/walking routing service with a publicized API. Turns out it uses a national coordinate system which is quite widely used nationally, thus a need for coordinate conversion.

    The question is, how to handle including national & regional features in GpsMid. If a bundled map is used, then it would be technically possible to select features based on target area when building the map. But if a separate application is used, that can't be done.

    In the short run, I'll probably go for manual configuration with a pseudo-API or something. In the long run, perhaps some kind of continent-wide app versioning can be considered, e.g. have a European version include national features for European countries.
