Native Map

Note: Native Map (legacy) is deprecated. We recommend switching to Native Map 2.0 for the best experience, updates, and support.

Native Map is an in-house map service based on OSM data. This means it supports the whole planet. Using OSM data gives a lot of advantages. For instance, giving the possibility to everyone to contribute and update map data. You can create an account on the OSM website and contribute your neighborhood map. All updates are pulled from OSM servers on a daily basis.
