Pretty Map

Postby acercorp » 2016-02-18 2:21

Dear Map Plus Developers,
I really appreciate your app. Especially the option to download an offline map.

Question: When I first opened the app the the map was really pretty, a yellowish map with a lot of detail and easy to zoom in and out, but after I downloaded an offline map it became red, green, purple etc, with not so much detail, and not so pretty. Why? Is it because I didn't download all the layers? If so, why doesn't it show all the layers when I'm online? Maybe this is a stupid question, but please enlighten me. I deleted the app and downloaded it again, and now it's pretty again, but I don't want to make the same mistake again.

Thank you,
Asser

This is not a mistake, it is because the "pretty" map, actually is the system road map, is hidden automatically while you are trying to view another (downloaded) map of the "Open Street Map", which has an incompatible "Projection" to the system map's. In order to switch back to the "pretty" map, please tap the "View"(left) button on map, and choose "System Map", then choose the "iOS Road".

Then, about the downloading map function, it could download maps from a giving custom map source, for example: Google, Bing, Nokia, etc. By default and for copyright reasons, we only provide a sample map source named "Open Street Map", and you have to add more custom map sources by yourself if you want view them or download them in Map Plus.
