I have now used mgmaps for several days now and found it a very useful tool to GPS. I have only one suggestion to present version which has everything one could desire.
When you mark your favorite place, it takes up a lot of screen space either in the center of map or at the bottom when selected. In low zoom levels it is difficult to avoid a marking, and these markings clutter the map's viewable area.
One solution could be to use transparent labels to favorite place, including for the tear drop marker, menu and for the arrow pointer so that the map is not obstructed from view.
Other solution could be to vary the font size for the favorite place dependign on the zoom level so that it matches the fonts on the map.
