Have been satisfactorily using Ovi Maps on my E72.
Everything was fine until recently, once on maps, in about 30 seconds & it completely zooms in, even if I zoom out the moment I release the zoom button it just zooms in.
Have tried re-starting, re-installing, but this just keeps on zooming in, any suggestions?!!
Maps Menu (Spanner Icon)-->Navigation-->Automatic Zoom.. set to OFF and check..
I have exactly the same problem (E72 with ovi maps 3.04b). Did you find a solution to the problem? I also set the open "automatic zoom" off and on and off again, tried restarting, reinstalling ovi maps, etc. - no help.
a fast workaround after playing with the maps: press SHIFT+* and immediately press # to zoom out. then ovi maps stays in the set zooming factor (mostly, not always). it seems that the zooming bar is enlarged, automatic zooming is enabled, if the zooming bar is contracted, automatic zooming is off.
Are you using latest v091.003 software or other version?
Whilst I may have remapped keys so that I can zoom in and out using volume keys in Ovi Maps, whereas it zooms right in on starting application I can zoom out to any position without it altering back.
thank you for quick response. yes, i´m using the latest firmware. the "shift" workaroud works for me, but it's somewhat inconvinient. How do you remap keys? And, more importantly, do you think this is a hardware or software issue?
thank you again
How do you remap keys?
Using MagicKey by Leftup, but as this application is unsigned obtaining the necessary Symbian developer certificate is now a lot more difficult than it was a couple of years ago.
As Ovi Maps has now remained at v3.04_10wk32_b04 for a number of device software versions, I can offer no explanation as to why some users devices have been so afflicted and not others. I can't actually remember at which point this particular version became embedded in device software, rather than having to be re-installed after device returned to "Out of box" state by carrying out "hard reset".

Firmware upgrade to v091.004, the default version of the map is 3.04.But the map of the old firmware version 3.03, the default will not be automatic zoom.3.04 default "automatic zoom", and did not turn off the option, and brought me trouble, I hope to increase the "automatic zoom" option selected by the user to turn off or turn on.
