    I asked the same question about map torrents. The response I got was that because map data changes daily, it doesn't make much sense to create a torrent everyday. I suggested keeping a persistent map image alive for a month so that making a torrent makes sense. Map data isn't likely to change a whole lot in a month anyway.

    There is a work in progress to allow patching the maps on the fly, but it will need more work.

    About maps, you don't need to download the whole planet.bin : you can use http://maps.navit-project.org/download/ to get only the area in which you are interested.
