There is no default zoom level that I am aware of.

There is a default "highway" zoom level that the car will automatically restore after a certain time of driving above a certain speed threshold. In town I can use the "+" button to zoom in on the map, but if I get on the state highway it will zoom back out to a specific after a mile or two of 55 mph driving.

No way of disabling this.

In my Model S
To the right of the "enter location" field is a blue icon that has three options (not official names): 1) Keep Map North, 2) Rotate Map with Car Facing, and 3) Show Entire Journey on Screen.

The third option has no "default" zoom be definition. It will zoom in and out as needed to show the journey.

I use option 1, and the last zoom level I choose stays there until I change it. Perhaps this is what you are looking for?

I am using option 1 - Keep Map North. I believe the previous response from FlasherZ is correct in that it automatically zooms out at a certain speed on the freeways. I'll keep an eye on whether this happens on local streets as well although 55 mph would be seriously speeding on local streets.

Huh. I use option 1, and the zoom level never changes unless I physically push the zoom buttons.

As I noted above, it most certainly didn't in one of the older firmware versions, but it most certainly does now. If you don't notice it, then that means you haven't zoomed-in quite far enough. Try to zoom in all-the-way, and then drive around and get on the highway.

The Navigon map zooms in and out with speed. Never seen the Google map do it and I wouldn't want it to. And yes, I've never tried driving with maximum zoom either, so I'll keep away from max zoom most of the time (once in a great while max zoom is useful, but usually I have it zoomed out to show most of the route).
