At the moment it is not yet implemented. Priority task now is to get the 
index running without errors. If this is finished, then the next step 
will be to generate directly a gmapsupp.img usable at the devices. This 
is an often asked feature on this list. IMHO this should be possible in 
not to far away future.

No idea.

The street index is contained as a subfile in the gmapsupp.img, which is 
stored on the sdcard/device. It has a slightly other format than the 
mdr.img. So it needs some work to get it ready.
