A recent iOS app update seems to have made it harder to manage my downloaded route maps.
Previously in Maps > Saved > Saved Routes, I could see which routes were downloaded via a small icon against each listed route. You could also download them from the listing view by tapping that icon.
Now though, I have to tap to view an individual route to be able to see if it is downloaded.
As I have a lot of Saved Routes this makes it very difficult to manage those I want downloaded whereas before it was relatively easy.
Two solutions I can see for this:
1. Restore the downloaded icon on the listing view
2. In Maps > Saved add a new item “Downloaded Routes” that lists only the routes that you have downloaded to your device.
Idea 2 would be really handy as when you are out and about to start a hike or ride, if you have a lot of Saved Routes it can take a while to find the one you are about to start. Whereas in a shorter list of Dowloaded Routes it would be easy.
