Hi,could we please SEE the map when we are at Zee? A nice "you are here" marker would be cool too.

Maybe a popup with "if you want to change your destination go to the captain's cabin", to avoid inadvertant problems.

Send me anything you like. Be decent, though. Bad stuff is fine if you attach a warning.

I hope they only do this if they fix the map for mobile (or make it optional and/or accessible) . . .

I still stand by my opposite feedback, which is that the map is far too cumbersome and high-quality for mobile usage (and sometimes even on desktop). I'd like a choice of a simplified option, like the main map, and - even better - a simple drop-down menu instead of a map at all, so as to select a destination by text. The map is so bad on mobile that you can't even properly scroll and it takes ages to load and zoom out does not work.

It'd be good to get a drop-down menu option (for mobile, at least) for the main London map, too.

(Also, if you ever want to put new items in your store; posters or prints of the high-quality maps would be pretty awesome)

Don't forget to go into your account settings and enable the compatibility map! Even if the regular map works fine on your device, the compatibility map is a far superior design. There's never a reason to use the default map

I have the compatibility map, but it's still too big for my device and very high quality (only difference seems to be that it lacks the flashing GIF sections of light).

I'm sure other people have no problem, but it's not accessible to some people with visual issues, and its very fiddly and requires a lot of zooming out and scrolling and whatnot. The Zee is worst, as it seems to have no compatibility mode and I can't scroll out and stay scrolled out.
