The customize tool is available after you sign in, click on Maps and select any of it. The Customize a copy button will bring you directly to the tool, where you can see a group of layers and color which currently presents this group. By clicking on the color palette, you will get a color selection dialog, where you can define a new color for a selected group. The color selection tool capabilities are operating system dependent and range from a simple window with color selection and its representation in hex format to the complex tools with color-picking options. You can also turn off the layer completely.

All changes can be reverted to the default value using a reset button.

In the down left corner, you can find few presets (the number depends on which map you start with) which you can further customize.
