Thank you. In Kompass maps there is, or was (today is not displayed), an option to customize map area. What is a size of the smallest available area (tile) ?

Good day Pavel,

in case you download any online map by custom selection, you may define area and zoom levels completely freely as you need. More about this option is here . If you are not familiar with this method how to download a maps, I suggest to download some of pre-prepared areas of Kompass maps or "learn" little bit this method on any of freely downloadable online maps.

In the Locus app when the release notes are displayed, there is a “>” sign for some items, linking to the relevant help topic on the web which induced the bug fix or adding the new feature.

Would be great to have those links here on this website, too.


It’s strange that from the mobile app you can read the relevant help topics on this website – but there is no linking within the same website here.
