    Is there a way to show satellite tiles on a TomTom map using SDK for web?
    I'm looking for something like this (how's done in Google Maps API):

    var mapOptions = {
    zoom: 8,
    center: myLatlng,
    mapTypeId: 'satellite'
    };
    var map = new google.maps.Map(document.getElementById('map'),
    mapOptions);

    TomTom doesn't support (or at least didn't used to!) any satellite imagery in their API. Their mapping division is devoted entirely to the vector mapping business, exclusive of satellite, aerial or street view imagery. I know of no equivalent to a 'satellite' / "mapTypeId" anywhere in their API.
