This applies to all platforms.
The IGN map is really useful when zoomed in (1:25000). However, when you zoom out a little, the view switches to a different tile set that is almost useless. It has absolutely no detail and you can't see the trails anymore.
While zooming out, and the useless tile set still needs to load, the app and website just keep showing the detailed 1:25000 tile set as placeholder. This view is WAY better!
It would be brilliant if there was an option to never use this coarse tile set at all, and instead just always zoom out on the detailed tileset. Then we could finally see the complete topo map, just as you would with a paper map.
This is the perfect 1:25000 IGN topo view, exactly the same as the paper map.
While zooming out, the app and website keep using this 1:25000 layer, while the new tiles load. This is perfect, because now we can get a better view of the trails.
But then, after a second of loading, this annoying tile set appears and all detail is lost. The trails disappear.
