    Hello Everyone,

    I tried my research but to no avail, so I'm gonna ask the experts.

    In the 3D driving view of the map, you have the zoom buttons in the upper right and upper left of the screen. I personally like to back the view out a couple taps (hit the '-' sign twice) to get a more 'wide-angle' view.

    However, there seems to be some type of counter and after about 10 secs, it reverts back to the default zoom level. Is there any way to override this?

    Thanks in advance,
    Scott

    Unfortunately you can't disable auto-zoom on the ONE. The 720 and 920 series have a menu option to turn it off, but none of the other TomToms have this feature...

    I kind of suspected this. I appreciate both of your responses! 1 Point a piece!

    Which, to me, makes it utterly unusable.

    What on Earth were the designers thinking???? Who wants to be forced to the zoom level THEY insist you have?

    What a stupid idea!
