Maps & Layers

On-demand maps

When a map is selected from the available maps list, the application will download, display and store on the device all displayed areas. Everything that has been displayed once remains stored and available for off-line use. When the same area is displayed again, the application will use the stored data instead of downloading it again (unless the stored data is too old and a new version can be downloaded).

Managing maps list

The application offers a wide range of maps, with some being pre-installed by default. You can remove them or install new maps from the community maps list, an extended set of maps mostly suggested by users. Note that the community maps list is regularly updated and can change without warning.

Maps F.A.Q.

Is it possible to increase the download speed of maps?

Each map uses its own map server and has a different download speed. Various factors can impact the download speed, including your physical location and the current server charge. We try to keep the default map as fast as possible to download, but don't hesitate to select another map that may be faster for you to access. If you need to download lot of map data, try to avoid rush hours to get a better speed.

Is it possible to change the language of names displayed on the maps?

Each map has its own policy concerning how to display names. The default map uses the local language (i.e. localized names) so all users have familiar names displayed in their own languages. Other maps like Bing Maps only uses English names everywhere. You can also install an alternative version of Bing Maps displayed in various other languages, just install the community map called “Bing Maps (Localized)”.
