Displaying Town Names in MyDrive map

MattSHMattSH Posts: 4 [Apprentice Seeker]

Is it at all possible to display more detail on the MyDrive app, in terms of town and street names? The level of detail on the MyDrive web map is just awful. It is practically impossible to plan a route accurately unless you're taking a direct route between major towns and cities.

In my case, i want to plan a motorcycle route through the countryside.

Help and guidance appreciated.

    Village and town names. The names of streets and roads when you zoom in. Just like any map really.

    Hi @MattSH

    The names of the Villages around me appear dependant upon how Zoomed in and out I am. Ie if I the My Drive App with my location showing the village name is not there but it appears as I zoom out then disappears when the Map area begins to cover a much wider area. Then Larger towns appear as I zoom out further until they disappear as the map gets even bigger.

    Thanks that’s my experience but some simply don’t appear. Looks like I’ll have to revert to 3rd party route planners and import GPx into MyDrive

    Come on TomTom; your maps are pretty awful compared to the competition
