Make Webmap-Provider configurable

Dear Scot,

I'm a longterm user of PathAway and still use it as the moving map software for navgiation on my RPDA N560 (technically a Fujitsu Siemens Loox N560 updated to WM6.1).

Although I only have ordered and licensed a standard version I'm able to use webmaps which I highly appreciate.

With the MOBAC-tool it's super simple to download webmaps for most region of the world in excellent quality. the tool even offers a PathAway Webmap format.

Now it would be ideal to have somewhere in the settings area a list of "webmap-providers". there I could for example enter the Czech Cycloserver, which provides high quality topo maps for Czech republic and a directory name. In a second step I would cope the tiles downloaded by MOBAC in the webmaps directory in a directory with the specified name and finally I could use the additional map with PathAway.

Is this possible? I'm looking forward to your feedback.

Best regards

Thanks for the suggestion.
We'll consider this for future revisions of the app.
