Satmap released 8 regions covering the whole of Germany using the new Satmap Premium Map data. In scale of 1:25.000 % 1:50.000. (A map of the whole of Germany, with a scale of 1:200.000, is included in each SD-card.)
Toggling is a new feature available only on version 1.4 of Satmaps platform software (downloadable for free from our software page). You must have version 1.4 or later in order for this map to work. Toggling allows the user to flick between two map scales of the same area – rather than zooming in all the way into the 1:25,000 scale or all the way out to the 1:50,000 scale, you can jump between one scale and another at the flick of a switch! In order to toggle a map (flick between the two scales) – you must be in an area of the map where the two different scales overlap. At the appropriate zoom levels, the “toggle sign” will become bold – which means you can click the “toggle button” and flick from scale to scale (instead of zooming).
