Reviewer's comment: When checking again, the map worked. It has zoom up to 1:150,000, further zooms sometimes don't show anything, though, it apparently provide zoom up to 1:5,000 for some locations. The map has marks for roads, national borders, etc. Not sure when it is updated though.

Reviewer comments

Map doesn't work again so I'm approving the last conclusions.
