As far as I understand bottom-right corner dot in Maps app should center(or start searching) your current position. The problem is it's so small that it's difficult to touch on it. So I often accidentally touch the map while I want to find my position.

Is it possible to make this dot bigger + add 'Find my location' option to 'drag down' menu?

Yes, it's very difficult - but now I have it: don't try to be precise, just press with your whole thumb (should be flat) in the bottom right corner. A workaround: long press everywhere to go to your position.

Hi, Aaron McCarthy just announced that it is already fixed in the next update: https://together.jolla.com/question/30058#comment-30316

Until then, as torcida said, long pressing anywhere on the map has the same effect (I think that it was presented in the tutorial appearing the first time you opened Maps ;-) )

Is there a way of starting the tutorial again? (As I recall, I had already forgotten what the tutorial said by the time I first got into the map view, because, you know, tutorials aren't very effective if you can't actually see what it's talking about.)

Unfortunately not. The tutorial is only ever shown the first time you display the map.
