I am not sure if Adobe is stuck with Google Maps, but I would like to be able to use alternative map sources for the Maps module. I realize this may be a licensing issue, but there are other choices besides Google, such as Open Street Maps and related sources.

Various mobile apps make use of tile servers that can be customized, so the user can choose which sources to use. I'd like to see something like that.

At a minimum, add something that is of use to people who venture off paved roads. Apple Maps is perhaps the worst at showing trails, dirt roads, and similar features. As geolocation becomes more important, it would be nice to have a map source that is usable for people who didn't take pictures by the side of the road.
