In short, I have managed to make a tiny solution in VisualStudio2015 that represents my problem.
You can see it on Github: https://github.com/theZivkovic/IonicMaps
I have two views, one that is just the initial view that leads to another, and the second view holds the map. The problem is that the map is barely visible, right near the right edge of the screen.
Interesting fact is that If I set the /map view to be starting view of the app (change in app.js line 17), the map renders nicely.
I would really appreciate any help.
