This is the GNOME 3.38 version of @gnome Maps on my Ryzen desktop. Will build that on the @PINE64 # next. It am pretty sure it scales properly now.

.@gnome @PINE64 And this is GNOME Maps 3.38 on the #: It's a lot better, but the Shortcut screen and the Navigation UI don't scale properly. Still: This is without 'scale-to-fit' and a massive improvement!

Shortcuts screen of Gnome Maps 3.38. The dialog does not fit the screen properly yet.
Navigation UI of Gnome Maps 3.38. The dialog does not fit the screen properly yet.
Satellite View of Gnome Maps 3.38. Looks great!
What about trying #? I was using it on #, I liked it a lot. There's a flatpak that can be installed on Mobian, possibly on other mobile distros. A native package or build would be better though.

I tried it a while back and concluded that it's the best maps for the PinePhone. https://linmob.net/2020/07/18/pinephone-daily-driver-challenge-part1-maps-navigation.html
Sorry, I forgot that's where I read about the flatpak. 😳😄

I didn't remember about the Pinephone not having enough RAM to run Pure Maps with OSM Scout. That's a bummer. 😕
@gnome @PINE64
what? I'm running puremaps+osm scout server on my Jolla 1 ... It's not fast, but it works...
I never actuallly tried this, so that might be totally wrong. Also, zram and swap might help to get it working anyway.
How much memory does the Jolla 1 have?

I would be glad if 2 GB of RAM is enough, I plan on using PureMaps + OSMScout on the Pinephone.

1 GB . Again: it's not the fastest thing in the world, it's fastest to download tiles from mobile data, but it works.
