Version 62 - 25 August 2014 Maps Pro is now translated in Hindi! Overlays can now be turned on/off directly from the Overlays menu Redesign of the Overlays page. Interface is now cleaner and allows you to tweak options on custom overlays (regroup points by proximity, show marker labels). You can now remove a custom overlay (KML/GPX/GeoJSON) from the list directly, which was previously done in the options panel. Road map is now next to the map instead of being on top of the map, so that it doesn't hide markers and pop-ups. To avoid errors with offline mode, browsing the map is now limited to the extent of the world. Before if you would pan right from Japan, you would end up in the USA, which is now prevented. Fixed the german translation for "heading": "Kurs" Added a warning concerning the destination folder for your downloaded maps. Due to Windows security restrictions, applications can't access drive roots such as C:\ or D:\. The warning message explains that you need to select a subfolder.
Version 61 - 18 August 2014 Fixed an issue related to roaming settings, overlays couldn't be turned on or off after some time Fixed reported bugs
Version 60 - 5 August 2014 Added a new Overlay: Truck restrictions from Nokia. Especially good for truck drivers
