Auto Zoom by Speed also means by Distance?

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Feb 12, 2011 6:12 am

I noticed that the Auto Zoom by Speed option also includes zooming in based on distance as you approach a turn. Is this expected behavior? It wasn't for me.

Although I think these two options don't need to be mutually exclusive, which would allow you to choose whether to zoom by speed or distance, or speed and distance.

Thoughts?

I like it, too. Mostly. But if I want it based on speed only, as the option suggests, then I feel that's what it should do, and not take distance into account.

I capped a little video to show this, in case Support wanders over this way. Watch between .5 and .4mi and you will see that even though the speed remains in the 40's, the zoom level increases. Also, around .2 to .1mi to go, driving in the 50MPH range, it zooms in even further.

Yet to try but I would agree with Alan, needs an option to zoom per speed without talking distance into account!
