View Full Version : Zoom levels

Hi all

I just purchased a Garmin 78, and have created several custom maps. I was wondering if it is possible to change what "Zoom" level the custom maps are displayed at. Currently they show up at 500m and below, but I would like to start seeing them at 2 km or so. Thanks in advance!

It may be possible, but I've never found a way. It seems that the unit chooses what zoom levels to used based on the resolution of your map.

OTOH, BirdsEye is much more flexible and shows through a very wide range of zoom levels. And it also renders faster on the screen. Too bad that we can't create our own maps in the .jnx format. :)

Thanks, I still haven't found a way. Oh yeah, the 100 map limit is annoying too! Other than that, wow...I am very impressed with the Garmin 78.
