Is there any way that the user set zoom level can be stored? Every time I start the app, it shows the whole of the UK map which is not very handy as I have to sit and zoom in to my preferred level each time.

Can the user set zoom level be saved at all?

Does it not zoom in automatically once you start moving?

Just completed a Couch Test.
Load app - map zoomed out.
Walked across room and within 5 seconds its zoomed in on my road.

Ill do a real test on the way to work later but I'm sure it always works that way.

Turns out I never had the 'auto zoom' feature turned on.

I live and learn!

Ah! I don't use the map view - just the audio alerts so I didn't even spot the auto zoom option...

if you don't use auto zoom the the app is supposed to restore your zoom level when you start it again. Might be a bug, I'll look into it.

Thanks Lutz. I guess that is my issue. With auto zoom off, map view always resets to the whole UK view.

I tried all day yesterday with the auto zoom on and it does work ok other than it zooming right in on approach to a camera which is not really what I wanted.

So I guess it is a bug in the way I use the app with auto zoom off
