    I found that mapy.cz has a much better map quality than Google maps. Their API is also free to use (you don't have to pay per call or give your card information and people complained about it a lot).
    I think that it would be nice to have it as a second overlay option.
    Here are some pictures for comparsion:

    Something for those who wants to play around https://jsfiddle.net/L0j6da8b/

    Actually it is.
    I already have an app :)
    https://github.com/JachyHm/MapyCZforTS
    It has some unresolved issues, but it works for x86 pretty well.
    In x64 DTG messed everything they can. Game sends to server wrong coordinates, so every 3rd tile is moved :(
    But because x64 is also corrupting route database, i do not use it`s editor any more.

    Btw. the maps on your screens are actually normal bing maps available here: https://www.bing.com/maps.

    Your app really don't want to work for me. It just returns the "no map available" tiles. The google maps are somewhat usable outside stations so I can do that and try to figure out a way to make the stations.

    Interesting.
    Nobody had problem yet in CZ/SK community.
    Did you select Bing maps in menu?
    Did you set zoom to 16?
