How to LocateEdit
To locate the map, you must either from the Check Status menu or Esc Menu see a map next to the Top 10 Pirates without an X. It will be highlighted by a white border and be underneath your cursor. Now all you need to do is click it.
What you can do with itEdit
Using the map, you can look around the whole of the Carribean. You can also hide Soldiers, Wealth, Romance and Events.
If you zoom in with Events turned off, you can not see if Marquis Montalban or any other important character or thing is at a certain place.
