How to set zoom during navigation ?

is there a way to set the zoom while navigating ? I can zoom in while navigating but it doesn’t follow the car anymore. I find that the default zoom is really far out if you’re driving “straight” for a long stretch. I’d prefer to see more detail go help with minor bends in the road.

Double tab the nav map. You will see a +/- on the left side. Use that to zoom in and out.

I has the same question the other day. My 12 years old daughter figured it out in 30 sec lol

I don't believe there is an option for consistent zoom. Not many nav systems that I know of have it.

Thanks. I don’t think this works, I had already tried this? This doesn’t “follow” the car. So it works if you want to look at an area closely but doesn’t work for navigation unless I’m missing something ?

Same problem on my X. Used to zoom in automatically as you approached a turn or exit. Not sure which release changed that but I don’t like it. You can zoom manually by double tapping the screen but that’s annoying.

I am not sure about M3 but I have MX and I can tap the Compass icon on top right to cycle between the three options below:
1. Current position-to-destination route
2. Zoomed in view facing North
3. Zoomed-in view facing the driving direction​

My Model 3 behaves in this manner. Now, if it would only remember my preference...

Another option is to enable the Navigation option in the instrument panel. That’s always shows zoomed in with next turns and such.

Not any more. Not sure which release crewed it up but it doesn't auto zoom any more and has become a real pain. One step forward - 2 giant steps back !!!
