When roads as surface features are enabled there is significant clutter on the map in some areas; would it be possible to differentiate between major roads and minor roads in the settings, so that major roads only could be selected, or only motorways, A-roads, etc

Yes, this feature I miss since long and because this I deactivated all roads.
Would be great to have the possibility to activate just the highways...

Definitely agree with this one. Motorways only would be an awesome option.

I'd like to understand more about this. What use if having motorways only selected, unless you know you can always look down and distinguish a motorway from another type of road?

The charts would be less cluttered.

But they're less cluttered still if roads are simply turned off.

I‘m puzzled now. You wouldn‘t see the motorways on the chart then!

Yes indeed. If the goal is less clutter, then hide all the roads. If only motorways are turned on, what use are they, given that you can't visually confirm whether what you're looking at is a motorway?

It is not that hard to distinguish motorways from other roads from 3,000 ft.

How would you distinguish between a motorway and a dual carriageway which is not a motorway?
