Zooming out enormously when navigating

Solved

Since the new version and when starting to navigate, Locus zooms out to level 16 or so (Netherlands is just few pixels). When zooming in with the '+', Locus knows better after some seconds and zooms out enormously again. Quite distracting (and dangerous) when using for car navigation... I cannot seems to find this new, euh, feature, how to disable/correct on this unwanted behaviour.

Have the same. Fix the zoom helped me out with that.

Same issue here.

I think this may be related to the new "automatic" preset associated with navigation feature.

When you start navigation and you experience this zoom issue, go to the auto zoom settings. I saw that my usual speeds and zoom level were not here, and the most important part: all zoom levels are set at 1000km. Just change them again and it's ok.

I have the same issue. The automatic zoom feature (Controlling, Map Screen, Automatic Zooming) was working fine up till the latest update. Now it just zooms out to 600-700 miles which makes the map and navigation worthless. I changed the zooms back to logical values, but when I navigate again they go back to enormous values.

Resolved my issue with automatic zoom. I had Preset set for Auto. Not sure how that happened. I switched back to the Default and now it appears to be working correctly.

I think I found it: I now did manage to disable this auto-setting-my-settings:

Settings --> Navigation --> Link to Presets --> disable all of them

I have no clue why Locus would zoom out so much with those presets: what is use of that? Anyway, I found my thing and reverted to my preferred behaviour. Maybe this post is useful for someone else as well. Case closed for me.

Hi guys,

we are very sorry - this is a bug. Will be fixed in the next version 3.40.2. coming out shortly. And yes, the automatic zooming is somehow set incorrectly so re-setting it helps.

best regards

Michal, Locus team
