Currently the map seems to be centralised around the UK, or at least around Europe, but not all who use gnome-maps will be in the UK, or Europe for that matter, so I think that it would be really good if the map would by default centralise the country which the person has set as the country they are located in in their settings. Though of course there should be an option in the gnome-maps settings to override this so that one can select any location as the default one for the map to be centralised around.

I think that this would be easier to do if something like this was already in place [1]. I am running Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 with GNOME 3.28, but this issue is also present on Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 with GNOME 3.20.

I initially reported this issue here but thought I should also do so upstream:
