Hi, when navigating or just moving without navigating I selected zoom lock. The zoom changes and ignores the setting.
What else should I do to lock the zoom?
Thanks,
Rob

Hello Rob
The question is - what do you expect exactly from function "zoom lock"?

rob54321

To lock the zoom so it stays on the same zoom level.

never worked? refund? automatic change of zoom?

Wait ... are we all talk about "Locus Map" application? Because

1) I never heard that zoom lock do not work
2) I see no refund request on our support email
3) with disabled! automatic zoom (as balloni55 mentioned) in settings, Locus do not do any other automatic zooming. At least as I know :)

i fear there is only a wrong interpretation of "zomm lock" or a simple user/handling problem :)

...means Locus zomm map automatically and you do nothing - only look on your display?

I think it works as advertised from my perspective anyway

You notice on maps if your zoomed right out - it doesnt display things like street names until you zoom in closer? with zoom lock you can zoom in until the street names show - then lock the zoom and you can then zoom out without losing the street names disapearing on the screen.

Conversley...you can zoom lock whilst zoomed out where the details arnt showing on the map, hit zoom lock and then you can zoom right in without any further details like street names popping up.

Think of it like a "digital zoom" on a digital camera - It is actually locking the "zoom level" to say the maps zoom level 15, but still allows adjustment while still staying on the zoom level 15 and associated map details which normally display at that specific zoom level

No worries - I can see how that option could be confusing. Possibly better to rename it to "Lock detail level" as thats the main thing it really affects
