I have a suggestion regarding the map type label that often overlaps and obscures the GPS route on our activities. While the label provides useful context about the map type—whether it’s based on time, temperature, etc.—its placement can sometimes interfere with the visibility of the route details.


To enhance the user experience and ensure the integrity of our route visualization, I propose the following solutions:

1. Place Labels in a "Dead Zone": Place the label closer to the "dead zone" along the edges of the map. This area is typically free from GPS data due to the automatic zooming out of the map to fit the route, making it an ideal location for non-obstructive label placement.

2. Adaptive Map Zoom: Maintain the practice of zooming out the map sufficiently to prevent the route from touching the edges, but include the current position of the label as part of this “dead zone”. This would cause the map to zoom out, fixing the overlap.
