zoomtag for internet map sources

Postby marcv » Fri Sep 27, 2013 10:47 am

might be useful to have an (optional) zoomtag in the mapsource. Some maps are only available in certain higher zoomlevels, would be nice if you don't have to zoom "in the black" before you see if they work. Might be confusing too.
something like
zoom = 12-16

This would also work when downloading with MOBAC beforehand, when you download with MOBAC a map with say zoomlevels 9,11,13,15. When using this offline inside Track@away, when switching between 9 and 11, you see an empty cartographic table at zoomlevel 10, as it is now.
so something like the following:
zoom = 9,11,13,15
would fix that.

Due to the way maps are currently imported, this would be difficult to implement. There is no way to avoid the "black" screen, snce the table zooms independently from the selected online source. Specially if you have local maps...

Ok, it's not a big deal.
Another option would be a "scale + or -" option, so if you have say Z14 the program can scale up or down; just digitally zooming for the visually challenged. (I need glasses for reading ;-(

A good idea would be to include zoom-info inside the legal-tag.

This feature has been introduced in latest 2.1.3. Check under hardware tab!

you can apply a constant "zoom" feature to the table.

mmm. I don't see it. When I look under prefs/hardware I see:
-Initialize GPS at startup
-Initialize compass at startup
-backlight
-Altitude corr.
-storage location

nothing else.
