    Here's how to do a proper mapping program, instead of a crayon drawing on screen, are you listening Apple?

    I just tried 45 degree for Madison, WI and it's grayed out. How long before it's rolled out? Having added the content and making it available are two different things.

    Hello,

    Sorry but nothing new. I.e.: Donostia /San Sebastian in Spain:

    You obviously are not one of the 14 international locations, I can see how they would pick major international locations rather than some tiny backwater town in Spain

    It's not exactly huge, either. Consider how many places with populations >1M that were skipped over, even in the US, and it becomes very easy to understand skipping a Spanish city with fewer than 200k residents.
