Just a simple coordinate grid on the map...similar to offlinemaps/alpinequest...

A 'must on' option when im using offlinemaps/alpinequest...

Easier when drawing track etc...

since my topic was merged I would like to add there is a need for grid like on classic printed map but with better resolution like for

example 50m so it would be great to have this feature where you can select color

and grid settings (because sometimes you work on squares like 25m other times 50m etc; color is important as hipso maps are so colorful that typical color just blends in).

This would be extremely helpful for boating and navigating ships, especially since there is usually just a contourless blue surface visible on the map when you are on the water.

Visible coordinate lines/grids may provide the only reference when on water.

Also very useful for geocaching when checking caches for graticule challenges

That would be great.

- Display of UTM/MGRS grid

- Display of custom grid that can be exported/imported via some file format. For ex. putting it over 1x1km square and dividing into 100x100m smaller ones with cols/rows names like A, B, C... 1,2,3...

How about Maidenhead Grid Squares? This would be very excellent for Ham Radio

We really need a grid that divides the area, the map into squares, when the size of the map approaches, the squares decrease ... Thank you!

This ability would best be implemented in a general sense and then adapt to specific purpose. I like Maidenhead for radio work, but also would be great to break it down into USGS Quads. Possibly others could do similar things.
