    In the recent firmware upgrades (maybe .8 or .10) I found a new to me feature: if you pinch the map a bit larger it now scales EVERYTHING: place labels, traffic, roadways etc. If you go too large the map will redraw and you will retain the new smaller scale but the font will be back to small.

    I really like how much easier it is to read with a bit larger overall image. Yes it pixel expanding but looks very nice to me. It woks the same whether north-up or track-up.

    Never noticed this before today. Like it!

    It has been that way since the last major map update where they introduced the rotating maps. (Which version that was, I now forget).

    I knew we could pinch zoom but not that a small pinch would scale up text traffic and roadways. Maybe just me?
