we went to download a map of the world at a low zoom level 2 (which just 
showed continents and most country boundaries) yet the download size was 
huge - there wasn't any buttons or options to reduce the data levels - 
personally I thnk based on the scale, the data should be reduced 
accordingly or there be some option to pick the level of data desired.  
I would think that a simple map of the world with country boundaries at 
a low level should be about 200 K - maybe this has been discussed or 
resolved before or did we miss something ?
