-The ''​**<​update-delay>​**''​ tag indicates after how many time the stored map data should be updated if it's used again. The default is ''​**None**'',​ meaning the application will never try to update the stored data. Must end with ''​**D**''​ (number of days), ''​**W**''​ (weeks), ''​**M**''​ (months) or ''​**Y**''​ (years). ''​**3M**''​ means ''​**3 months**''​.

Must end with ''​**D**''​ (number of days), ''​**W**''​ (weeks), ''​**M**''​ (months) or ''​**Y**''​ (years). ​For example, ​''​**3M**''​ means 3 months. Use ''​**0D**''​ to force the application to update the data on each display.
  
-\\+The optional ''"​**type**"''​ attribute allows to define the type of the map. If no preview is available, the application will use common preview based on the map type. Can be one of ''"​**roads**"'',​ ''"​**topo**"'',​ ''"​**satellite**"'',​ ''"​**hybrid**"'',​ ''"​**nautical**"'',​ ''"​**aeronautical**"'',​ ''"​**historical**"'',​ ''"​**hillshade**"'',​ ''"​**contours**"''​.
  
-===== Advanced example =====+==== Map layer ====
 \\ \\
 +The difference between regular maps and map layers is that a map layer is added over the current map when being selected. This is usually used for maps having a transparent background. Here is how to define a map layer:
  
 +<code xml>
 +  <source id="​LAYER01"​ layer="​true"​ opacity="​50">​
 +    <​name>​Map Layer Example</​name>​
 +    <​zoom-levels z="​3,​5,​7,​8,​9,​10,​11,​12,​13,​14,​15,​16,​17">​
 +      <​server><​![CDATA[http://​a.tile.openstreetmap.org/​{$z}/​{$x}/​{$y}.png]]></​server>​
 +    </​zoom-levels>​
 +  </​source>​
 +</​code>​
  
 +The optional ''"​**opacity**"''​ attribute allows to define an initial opacity, given in percent.
