Sorry for not being very clear. I think the routable overview map would 
only be used for very long distance routing. So route from tile onto 
overview map (motorways/trunk_roads/primaries/ferries only) to 
destination, continue on normal map. I think the overview map is only 
used if Mapsource cannot route using the normal tiles (e.g. setting 
avoid highways with City Navigator maps and trying to route from Poland 
to Portugual ). The main reason for overview map with roads would be to 
have faster map panning when zoomed out in Mapsource.

I hope that once we have no more overlap, map redraw speed also 
increases (and less flashing up in Mapsource when zoomed out far - if 
you know what I mean).

Well I'm open for testing if new patches come....
