In Jolla's Maps app, one map tile in Kallio, Helsinki, seems to be replaced by a tile from Käpylä. This only happens on a certain magnification level – when you zoom in or out, the map is correct.

It shows up fine for me, does it show up wrongly again after restarting the app? If so, maybe it has something to do with cache. I don't know how to clear the cache, though.

Restarting the app doesn't help. If others can't see this, maybe it's some one-time error that repeats because the erroneous tile is cached on my phone...

It is a rarely occurring error which causes a map tile to be incorrectly stored in the cache. The UI doesn't currently provide a means to clear the cache.

I found the cached map tiles in /home/nemo/.cache/org.sailfishos/sailfish-maps/QtLocation and deleted them, and now the correct tile is shown. Thanks @nthn and @Aaron McCarthy for pointing me to the cache.

I'll close this question now. If this is a bug in Maps, the question can be edited to be a bug report and reopened.

This was caused by an incorrect map tile being stored in the Maps cache, and emptying the cache from the command line fixed the issue. The cache is in /home/nemo/.cache/org.sailfishos/sailfish-maps/QtLocation. I deleted all the png's there, and now I can see Kallio like it's supposed to be. :)
