Map is the central feature of Orbis. Its functions, modes and settings are rather broad, that's why they are described in separate sections.
By default, map behaves in the following way: by sweeping your finger over it, you move it in the direction of the sweep. By Pinch open / close gesture, you move the "camera" (virtual point of view) closer to the surface of the map. This does not load map in higher / lower resolution, it merely makes the map tiles of current resolution bigger / smaller.
Map is displayed in three-dimensional view and rotates along with the phone.
Map modes, map settings, zoom and adding waypoints are accessible using the buttons on the map. The buttons, from top to bottom and from left to right are listed in the menu above this article.
