A paper version is also available:
It is unique in that it is not centered on your current position. Instead, it is 'folded' into areas. This lets you keep a continuous perspective on the battlefield. The page is changed automatically when you cross over the edge.
You can zoom in and out by pressing Shift-Ctrl-Numpad +/-.
You can change to a night mode by pressing Shift-Ctrl-N. Sorry, the map is not perfect -- some colors are hardcoded it seems.
All keybindings can be changed via Main Menu -> Configure -> Controls -> Configure Addons.
If you have a GPS or are playing on Regular or lower, your position will be shown. Map markers are shown.
