I have tried just about everything I can think of and my maps are always 0/4 or 1/4 I need a 3/4 or 4/4 map that's larger. The only way I have gotten them is to spawn in with them and have a starting map thing I need it for an older map and I cant change the world settings like bonus chest and starting map.

How do I get a level 3 locator map?

  • I know that MCPE is weird, but what the heck is a "level 3 locator map"? Jan 14, 2018 at 1:49
  • @Fabian a map with a pointer and zoom of 3. They are craftable Jan 14, 2018 at 3:25

You simply need to surround an existing locator map with paper at a crafting table. Or simply, 8 paper and a locator map.


To make a locator map:

To zoom it out:

You need to get your map to level 4 to see your X and Y location, but you can see your player indicators (little arrow looking thingies) with level 3. Also, to get more visibility on it, just walk around with it out.


As of the 1.11 update, this has changed. Now you need the Cartography Table, where you add one paper to the map to make it larger. If you want to make a new empty Locator map, you need a compass surrounded by 8 pieces of paper in a crafting table.
