Confirmed in the world server too. Just today, and I think there was an update today. However, traffic patterns and paved roads do not disappear.

This does need to be acknowledged. It used to be "just fine" :grin:, but now most roads disappear quickly when you zoom out. You don't even need to get close to the most zoomed out level. Did they just stop building tiles in some levels? What is even more confusing is that some stretches of some freeways are still there even in most zoomed out level.

No luck here. We are facing server issues for 2 weeks now. It was reasonable yesterday and this morning (except the failure to contact the routing servers), but it is down now. I tried 3G and 2 different ISPs with no luck.

I'll report back with my findings if and when the servers work again.

The servers worked here, albeit intermittently. There is indeed an improvement. It is acceptable now. But I also wish that freeways stay a little bit longer.

Hi,

We isolated this issue and a fix will be uploaded to the server in the coming days.
In order to see these road on highest zoom level, you will need to refresh to maps first.

Thanks,

Hi,

We have just uploaded a fix to that issue.

Please note - users who already experienced this problem, have already downloaded the problematic tiles - they will need to do a "refresh map tiles" from the client in order to download the fresh set of tiles.

Thanks,


Ori

Hi,

Sorry I wasn't clear - my bad.

We uploaded this fix the the World server first, the NA server should be updated with this fix in a day or two (if everything goes as plan).


Thanks,

Try this:

Zoom out to where the road disappear.
Menu -> Settings -> Advanced -> Data Transfer -> Refresh map of my area

I suggest doing it while connected to wifi.
