Map Detail

Most maps in the Trail Finder are from a high level to provide an overview of each area.
Maps labeled as "High Res" are intended to show the high level of detail for the area but they're often unusable because of the overwhelming amount of information.
The GPS map progressively increases detail as you zoom in to prevent information overload.
