*** A Couple of Important Notes ***

¹ Radar Animation for ALL Graphics Modes :
Older devices (pre iPhone 5s) and all but the newest iPads may struggle with radar animation when in "Apple Maps" (MapKit) mode. It is recommended that you use Classic or Express for radar animation. You might also get better results by adjusting the animation speed in map settings and/or zooming out.

² Apple Watch Support :
Support for Apple Watch is currently limited. Unfortunately, there is not yet a way available to developers to implement zoomable/scrollable images. Please consider Apple Watch support to be a "hobby" at this time.
