#479 closed defect/bug (fixed) - Please don't build map/poi_geodownload by default

Reported by: pini Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:



The plugin map/poi_geodownload isn't documented at all. Hence I've asked about its usage on IRC:

<pini> Hi Navit devs
       Could someone tell me what is map/poi_geodownload for?
<cp15> pini, it is a map driver for the POIs of reiseplaner. Once they seemed to be planned as a public available POI source, but the data has vanished
<pini> cp15: thanks. so, should I consider this plugin as deprecated? or is it still of interest for MG maps users?
<cp15> Yes, it is still of interst for MG maps users, but for effectively using it it is a bit too slow
<pini> is there any instruction about which MG files should be used for this feature?
<cp15> pini, I don't think so

Given this answer, I doubt map/poi_geodownload has to be built by default.

Disabling it by default would likely mean distributors wouldn't include it. As cp15 said it's still of interest. As it doesn't introduce any new dependencies and doesn't break anything I don't see a reason to change that.

It does introduce a dependency on mdbtools.

This plugin isn't even mentioned in the wiki and it seems nobody knows how to use it. It doesn't make sense to have it build by default.
