Hello,

Is there a way of creating my own map tile for offline browsing by scanning a printed version of map, breaking it into tiles and providing the location coordinates?

I think so (never tried though) use software by Microsoft called MapCruncher

What really would be nice is to have a JPG-overlay feature. Just take a photo of a map (with the phone), add a Geo-reference and see it in MGMaps (overlayed). Without additional tools.

Would this somehow be possible? Thanks!

It will be considered for a future version, for now it's not possible in MGMaps.
