Roads disappearing when going >50 mph

The type of road

Hi there,

It doesn't disappear... It only goes to the bottom when you speed up...

In the editor if it is selected as Primary street or higher it shouldn't happen.

We know Waze does this to decrease data usage as at that higher speed it downloads less map data because it won't be displaying it. I (someone) should figure out what declutter threshold, if any, can help with this.

Roads disappearing when going >50 mph

I'm a Wazer noob and I'm just wondering if what I'm experiencing is normal behavior. As the title describes, as I'm driving and accelerate beyond 50 mph, all the roads in the surrounding areas disappear. This is a little disconcerting to me since it appears I'm just driving in an empty field:

When I slow down, it goes back to normal like this:

I like the general look of the maps on Waze better than TomTom, but at least TT shows me the roads no matter what speed I'm driving, which I prefer.

Depends on your car.

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.

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.
