1.5x and 2x zoom on navigation - is this new?

Was playing around in settings today and noticed there is a 1.5x and 2.x magnification setting for the main 17" nav display. Makes the "most zoomed in" level 1.5 or 2x magnified.

Never noticed it before. Is it new, or have I just been inattentive?

I don't remember what the settings were, but we have always had a choice of zoom levels.

Is the default 2X?

Default is 1x

My DS showed me this. It enlarges the names of the streets on the maps.

It's been there since at least 4.2

And by "enlarge" -- it just scales them up so they're horribly pixelated and to my eye, harder to read than unzoomed. It'd be nice if it bumped up the font size and re-rendered instead of just scaling bitmaps.

I don't see this option on my P85D. Has it been eliminated?

Doesn't exist anymore. Maps are zoomable--don't know if it impacts font size without checking.

Wow. Blast from the past. April 2013.

Quick easter egg on map zooming - after you've pressed + and zoomed in all the way, you can still pinch and zoom to one further zoom level. If you happen to move the display while zooming and lose centering on the car you can press the nav bar to get lock again and the map will keep its uber-zoomed level.

Happy New Year.
