Layers menu

Top right hand corner contains the Layers-menu-icon.png icon via which the layers / options menu can be requested. With all layers selected the map can look very cluttered. Select only those layers you need for a certain task: like the satellite image, places, roads, GPS points etcetera.

Feed

Tab on left hand side with a listing of the UR's, Map Problems and Place update request in the editable area.

Drives

Tab on left hand side with a listing of the latest drives. Short drives are often added immediately. Sometimes your drive information is not updated the same day, but in the end almost all drives appear in this list.
If you click on a drive the route you followed is displayed, but remember: you have to move the map yourself towards the location of the route.

Areas
