“Show on map” button and zoom
If the green arrow “show on map” is selected (e.g. from a search), the map will shift and zoom towards the place. It is not possible to stop the zoom and a high altitude. The automatic zoom will fight any manual intervention and continue all the way in.
Indeed it does, by design, and has done so from the start of EV4 development. What is it that you find inconvenient about this, Leif, and what would you prefer to happen?
Sometimes I only need a location from a high camera altitude. I would prefer that I can stop the automatic zoom by manually using the one finger slider, and thereby overriding it. Presently I have to wait for the zoom to go all the way to 3NM, then zooming out again to whatever I wanted.
Thanks, Leif! I'll have to leave it to Rob to comment on that at a practical level. IIRC "in the early days" Rob explained that in fact the trajectory you see happening was there to "fill the time" while EasyVFR was preparing the full picture for the final view, so the time saved waiting to zoom in might not be very much - but at least you would be spared having to "unzoom" after it had reached the 3nm scale!
It should be doable to interrupt automatic zooming as soon as the user touches the screen somewhere, but as Stewart mentions I also vaguely recall there is a small devil somewhere otherwise we would have implemented it already. But since I don't recall it anymore, lets give it another try ; I'll have a look at it.
