Thank you very much. This feature is a useful one that will help me as I
have already forgotten what places I had fetched and what not.

It looks like it is time for a feature request for TangoGPS to allow
overlaying of maps: not just points where GPS was linked with GSM, but
OSM over Google maps or so as number of repositories grow. My SD card is
running out of space because of maps. And now additional repository will
be added which partly duplicates OSM!
