Major improvements and enhancements to road maps

  • Significantly updated streets and highways in most parts of Laos thanks to tracklogs I collected myself as well as kind users at in particular  thanks to robinowyong, nadainn, cflai, chetchew and thanks also to Rotweiler who provided some initial feedback to this project earlier last year
  • Added in Vietnam coastline
  • Added in a couple of thousand POIs in Laos and Vietnam - mostly accommodation, tourist spots and most importantly fuel stops - some fuel stops are nothing more than stalls by side of the highway selling fuel in 2Ltr soft drinks plastic bottles - but hey if you're running low, take what you can get!!!
