Not a Problem

Hi,
I turned on LoPoints(locally) and it turned out that there is a problem with their display. In the Waypoints & Routes settings, I changed the Size of the waypoint icons to 50%, but there is no size for LoPoints.
I have attached screenshots where LoPoints are displayed.
The displayed map during navigation looks nasty because of these disorienting points. Their size is correlated with map zooming.
Is it supposed to look like this?
LoPoints are only to inform, the icons should be of a fixed size on the screen that the user specifies.
What is now - it's some great macabre, you can't navigate with such a map!!! Look at the screenshots what beauty you have created...

Hi,

go to settings > maps > advanced features > magnify all maps > disable it or change the magnification to some reasonable value. Then you get the Lopoints in this size:

So I have to set the map zoom to get the right size of LoPoints?! So these points are, in a word, a total misunderstanding when it comes to displaying them.
That's why my map has such enlargements (depending on speed) to have navigation comfort, and points are secondary here.
Locus should always adjust the display size of LoPoints so that they do not play the role of 1-plane.

Not zoom, but the map resolution. Regarding your screenshot, you use some 500+% map enlargement set up in settings > maps > advanced features > magnify all maps - this resizes the whole map content including Lopoints. For ordinary zooming, Locus uses the zooming buttons:

if I'm not mistaken, the map has a fixed resolution, the higher the resolution of the map, the more we should see when it is enlarged, and objects on the map, such as street names, points, etc., should be properly scaled.
I checked and the conclusion is that the option you are talking about does not work properly (maps > advanced functions > zoom all maps) because the objects are not scaled correctly. What is the point of using this function?
I am sending sample screenshots for zoom +300%. You can see the absurdity in these screenshots - how the map should not look like.
I disabled this option, which I think needs to be fixed.
P.S.
A few years ago, I bought Compass maps from Locus. The maps have poor resolution and look like this screenshot when zoomed in very high. I stopped using them because I have the correct scaling, LoPoints and marked trails in your LoMaps maps.

Thank you for your idea, we will think about a detached resize option for LoPoints.
