> The map on iOS is working on my phone - at least the features I've tested:
* opening a map, selecting satellite or map view
* selecting a dive site and returning to the dive list - the selected dive
* changing zoom by gestures or using +/- icons
* selecting a dive from the list, and choosing "Map It" icon
All my dives have GPS coordinates. I tried adding a new dive without
coordinates and the "Map It" function is dimmed as expected. I couldn't
figure out how to manually add the location using the map, but I didn't
spend long trying.
Overall, things working well for me. Thanks - the apps looks great. Now
all I need is a BT dive computer.
