If your tile map is particularly created for one specific region or area, to easily locate the map on the interface, type in the search box at the top-right: ...<lat>, <long> (note the 3 dots at the beginning, that should be included):

Additional notes

This method works for maptiler/openmaptiles and it might enable other vector-based maps that work similarly too. If you have feedback, please contact support for more information.
