Map detail scaling

I'm in a remote place where there are lots of unpaved roads and a few small towns far apart. Unfortunately Locus's default scaling makes it really hard to make sense of where I should go.  If I zoom out to where I can see my destination, the screen becomes almost blank and when I am zoomed in enough to see the roads I really can't tell where they might lead...   

Is there a simple way tell Locus (new or old version) to show more detail when zoomed out?

Thanks!

@Newlands The only way, as others have already suggested, is to use a different theme.

Alternatively, you can use the route planner for planning...

Thanks!
In the new Locus (4?), I only see four themes: Hike & Bike, Ski, City and Road...
Clicking the + button takes me to the store, but there is "no data to display here".
Where can I find themes for the new version?
