We update the OpenStreetMap data in our app with almost every new release. See also: How often do you usually update maps?
After you install a new update of the app, if update for maps is available, you will receive a notification and see the red dot on the menu button. In addition, the app will automatically update the downloaded maps at startup if you have connected to WiFi.
To update maps manually, tap the menu button → "Download Maps"
You will see the list of downloaded maps. You can update all downloaded maps at once by pressing "Update All button" or update each map (country or region) manually by pressing the yellow update icon.
- You are not forced to update maps – MAPS.ME will continue to work with previously downloaded maps. But, we recommend to update maps regularly with a new release of the app – you not only receive latest map changes and improvements, but size of the update will be significantly reduced.
- The update process takes time, the more downloaded maps you have, the more time it will take.
