How to update maps from the community maps list?

Map servers often change the way they provide maps, so we must update the community maps on a regular basis. However, those changes are not automatically updated on your device, so if you see that a map is not working properly, try to update its map group as explained here:

  • Tap the “Maps & Layers menu and “Available maps;
  • Tap the menu icon of the map group you want to update. Do not tap the menu of a single map;
  • Choose “Update.

During the update process, all the maps of the updated group are un-displayed, so you'll need to display your map again.

If the map is still not working after the update, contact us by email.
