    I have a small problem when using zap map on my iPhone. After I have selected a charge point (such as Hollyhedge -KT113DQ) and go to information, then the statement at the bottom of the page next to the “i” symbol is curtailed with dots and I am unable to read the whole sentence. No amount of clicking, turning the phone sideways or trying to scroll seems to help. The information is important, but I cannot read it.

    Can you advise?
