    I've pretty much got this thing figured out...the 16GB model I just bought is my first-ever iPod, and I love it...except for *one* little thing. Can you zoom *out* while using the Maps application? Or, is it possible to reset the starting magnification to the continental US map? If someone could line me out on this, I would be VERY appreciative...thanks!!

    Regards,

    umm you can make bookmarks by droping a pin on a location and just click that book mark and it will automaticly center it.

    Zoom in the maps application is exactly the same as zoom in safari. Pinch your fingers together to zoom out, separate them to zoom in. And maps will open to where you last left it.

    Yep, figured that part out...but can I zoom out to view a whole city or even a few square miles at a time? Once I've zoomed in on my house (just to see how good the resolution was), I can't zoom out and all I can do is move around and go to my other bookmarked places, which are zoomed in just as far. Is there a fix for this, maybe some way to reset the map as a whole when I open the application?

    That's odd.. I'm beginning to think you might have a dodgy version. Mine allows me to zoom in and out regardless of where i am or past activity. Perhaps give uninstalling that app and reinstalling it a try.


    I hope you're being sarcastic, because i thought this was a tad obvious.

    Looks like he posted before he tried your "solution", saying he tried it. Then he tried it and he posted "GENIUS"?

    Well, I guess if it's his first iPod...
