Built-in POI icons too small to see when navigating
  • When in the Navigate mode on a smartphone, the built-in POI icons are too small to be distinguishable when the smartphone is mounted on a windshield.  I have tried increasing the Icon size parameter in the Settings\Map Customization\Map Scale menu to the maximum, but that is still not large enough.  Even at the maximum size settings, the icons are barely visible against the map background.  They are certainly too small to be able to tell what icon is shown without leaning forward and getting close to the screen; not a safe way to drive.

    The built-in icons are at a large size when just looking at the map (navigation stopped).  The problem may be the default shrink factor used for the built-in icons.  When installing custom POIs using DiggerQT, I have found that the default shrinking ratio of 50 results in the same behavior as seen with the built-in icons.  With navigation stopped the icons are large, and with navigation turned on the icons are very small.  I have found that using a shrinking ratio of about 20 results in a more uniform icon size between navigation off and navigation on.

    Is there a way to change the shrinking ration of the built-in icons?  Why would the built-in icons be defaulted to such a large size difference between navigation off and on?
