the Map Module uses Google Maps which is inaccurate within China due to some 'GPS Offset' that the Chinese government applies. However OpenStreetMaps does not have this problem, nor do any of the Chinese mapping products (e.g. Baidu maps). Would it be possible to have an option to select a different map provider? Garmin and Strava have done this kind of thing in the last couple of years to fix this exact problem when plotting running/cycling data onto maps.
This site is a good reference for the problem: https://polastre.com/2013/02/what-the-map/
