Suggestion 1:
I would really like to see the ability to download maps to the system for offline use. What's the point if I can't take my Windows 8 tablet to a remote place (or at least a  place with no Wi-Fi)?

Suggestion 2:
Secondly I would like to see a "refresh" button in the Settings menu. The reason why I ask this is because the Maps in my region are probably 5 - 10 yrs. old. The roads, for example, are no longer dirt roads, they've been either paved or asphalted. So a refresh button would require satellites to re-take the images. (P.S.: You could add a "feature" to avoid unnecessary orbit of the satellite").

Please add these functionalities in the next update! Or at least Suggestion 1!
Thanks in advance!

I agree entirely with this suggestion. It works with Nokia maps on my phone, the same should work on a computer.
