Glad to see others see this too. Texas has a lot of two lane 70mph roads. I just started using Waze and was disconcerted when the map blanked out on me. I don't need to see all roads, but it would be helpful to see both the road I'm currently on as well as cross streets.

So no solution for iOS then.

The software should automatically restrict the zoom based on the type of road you're on.

Or, it should default to not zoom out (automatically) beyond where streets still show on the map. I don't find the display to be of much use when it's zoomed beyond that anyway.

Try driving around an area that has all dirt roads. The dirt road display sucks always reguardless of zoom, then speed up and your are driving on a blank screen.

Plenty of dirt roads can handle 50mph+.

Normal roads do disappear at higher speeds. We have the same issue in South Africa on some secondary roads where higher speeds are allowed.
I would at least expect the road you are on to remain visible, but that goes AWOL as well.
I would love it if the auto zoom option had a setting where you could set the Max zoom you prefer as a percentage on a slider.

Ah, it seems that the zoom is already catered for and can be manually set in the preferences file.
AutoZoom.Max Scale is set to 2000 by default.
You can change it to 1700 or 1500 or even lower depending on your preferred zoom.
