Satnav map scaling

Post by Grimshaw » Mon Nov 02, 2015 7:40 pm

How does one set the default map scale? I find it annoying that when I change the scale using the + and - buttons the map reverts to the initial scale as soon as the picture refreshes. I would like to set the default scale say to half a mile. Can this be done? I have tried all ways without success.

Looks like you have "Auto Zoom" enabled. I had to disable this, because it simply does not work as expected.

That's exactly the problem I had until I turned Auto Zoom off. If I recall there is also an option to set which scale you want the Nav to always be in and then can use + or - to change on the move.

Auto zoom in my book would be you have the Nav set to the scale you want then as you approach a junction/hazard it zooms into it. You negotiate the hazard and then it zooms back to your default scale.

Thanks guys. Auto zoom duly switched off. I'll try it on the road tomorrow.

Where do I find auto zoom ? Is it on the computer menu or on the satnav itself? I'm still finding my way round all the various settings!! Thanks.

Turn "autozoom" off. It seems that the function of "autozoom" is to automatically zoom right in to the most zoomed in possbile option and that's all. Useless.

Once you turn that off, it stays zoomed to where-ever you put it. Remember you also have a "next junction" diagram and the "coming up" instructions in the main instrument panel, so I find that most of the time zoomed out to show me about two miles around is best. But at least with autozoom off, YOU get to choose.
