Maps Zoom Level Limited - Satellite View Is Even Worse And Does Not Track The Street Map Zoom Level At All

May 22, 2012

Recently the Maps app on both my iPads started limiting my abilty to zoom in far enough to be able to read street names. This is a new thing, it was working fine a couple of weeks ago, but recently the maps started refusing to zoom past arbitrary and contstantly changing limits. On the iPad 2, the street names are fairly readable (indoors, with soft lighting), but on the new iPad 3 you need a pocket microsope and a sun shade to read them. Literally.

The satellite view is even worse and does not track the street map zoom level at all. You can at least see secondary roads on the standard view, but you can't see streets smaller than an 8-lane expressways on the zoom level you can get with the sat layer turned on. When I compare it to Google Earth, the sat view available on Maps looks to be at an eye level of about 35000 feet. I used to use Maps to find specific buildings in Seoul, now I can only find things larger than the Olympic soccer stadium. (Visible as a 3mm oval)

This limit is not imposed on the Google Maps web site accessed via Safari, nor in Google Earth for Ipad, nor on the Android Google Maps apps on my Android pad or phones. It only happens on the Apple Maps app, and only in Korea as far as I can tell. It zooms fine in Washington D.C., Tokyo, Astana, Teheran, and Moscow.

It makes the Maps app completely useless on a Retina display. It's real pretty but you can't read it. I haven't been able to find mention new of this new "feature" anywhere else, has anyone here experienced this problem?

iPad, iOS 5.1.1

Version Of Google Maps Doesn't Allow To Create Custom Maps ?

Apr 28, 2010

I'm looking for a good app on the Ipad to plan a future trip abroad.Technically I would like to do something similar to the desktop version of google maps: search for places, place pins and add comments and notes on the map for future reference, create itineraries and so on.Unfortunately, the ipad version of google maps doesn't allow to create custom maps with pins, but only allow to create bookmarks, which is not as interesting in this case.I looked for a few apps but could only find some allowing geotagging notes, and not placing notes on a map.

Maps App Limiting Abilty To Zoom?

May 22, 2012

Recently the Maps app on both my iPads started limiting my abilty to zoom in far enough to be able to read street names in South Korea. This is a new thing, it was working fine a couple of weeks ago, but recently the maps started refusing to zoom past arbitrary and contstantly changing limits.On the iPad 2, the street names are fairly readable (indoors, with soft lighting), but on the new iPad 3 you need a pocket microsope and a sun shade to read them.

It only happens on the Apple Maps app, and only in Korea - as far as I can tell. It zooms fine in Washington D.C., Tokyo, Astana, Teheran, Beijing, Pyeongyang, and Moscow.This appears to be affecting users outside South Korea. Try zooming in on Seoul in Maps with the satellite layer enabled to see what I am describing.

Nov 30, 2010

I was researching a bike route on google maps in Safari and a pop-up asked if I wanted to use my current location. I mistakenly said no and now when google maps comes up in any instance I get a message that it does not have permission to use my current location.

I've been using Maps and Google Maps to find places, but notice that the directions aren't always concise.
