1.5x and 2x zoom on navigation - is this new?

Was playing around in settings today and noticed there is a 1.5x and 2.x magnification setting for the main 17" nav display. Makes the "most zoomed in" level 1.5 or 2x magnified.

Never noticed it before. Is it new, or have I just been inattentive?


I don't remember what the settings were, but we have always had a choice of zoom levels.

Is the default 2X?

Default is 1x

My DS showed me this. It enlarges the names of the streets on the maps.

It's been there since at least 4.2

And by "enlarge" -- it just scales them up so they're horribly pixelated and to my eye, harder to read than unzoomed. It'd be nice if it bumped up the font size and re-rendered instead of just scaling bitmaps.
