Problem with feature

Postby kcrossen » 2017-12-14 19:07

Why does Map Plus limit the highest zoom level to the least detailed layer? Why not let the user zoom in as far as they please?

The limitation is set by the underneath Map framework we are using, the Apple's MapKit.

When you set the System Map as "iOS Road" or "None", the highest zoom level is 20;
When you set the System Map as "iOS Satellite" or "iOS Hybrid", the highest zoom level is 17;

A suggested way for viewing Satellite with zoom level 20 is setting the System Map as None, and add a custom satellite such as google satellite. If you do need a zoom level higher than 20, sorry but there is no way by waiting for future iOS update, maybe iOS 12, 13 would extend this limit.

It would be very useful if Map Plus has option to zoom in more then level 20. Some other map apps (which are much more simpler then Map Plus) zoom further without any problem. Pleas see attached files with screen shot from Map Plus and Galileo App - both displays the same location on OpenCycleMap.
