Native Map

Native Map is an in-house map service based on OSM (Open Street Map) data. It supports the whole planet and also gives all users the possibility to contribute and update map data. All updates are pulled from OSM servers on a daily basis, so the native map is always as accurate as possible.


Native Map

To choose Native Map, follow the guide on how to select a map for your application.


Themes give you the option of a standard theme (what you’re used to) or a low-contrast theme. 


We’ve optimized the low contrast theme for geofences, tracks, and similar data. It's much easier to spot your fleet data on the map with a subtler color scheme (see below for a comparison).
