#1788: Maps - Please do not store offline data in /tmp

 I have scrolled around the map in Locations [0] to download some map data
 of places I plan to go to. That way I can use the map when I am offline.

 However, the data is stored in /tmp/diversity-maps/osm which gets deleted
 upon reboot.

 Temporary workaround: tar all tiles and move them to a save place, copy
 them back after reboot.

 Proposed solution: store files in a permanent location.

 If the tiles are stored in a permanent location, then the Locations
 application should probably have a preference menu where you can allocate
 a maximum number of megabytes.
