I need to ditto my own suggestion.
The most recent problem: I was getting close to my destination, look down and I am zoomed way out. Can't see where I am going to turn.
I check the "next turn" and SA 2009 has me headed away from my next stop and on to the next. The road is long and a major highway, so it is zoomed way out. I quick, zoom in on the next turn with a drag on my new touch screen, see the name of the road, and SA zooms back out like "how dare you?!" Kinda funny as I understand it is just a program, but still a pickle of a problem.
Happens almost daily in my quest to route 3 to 5 stops that almost always backtrack the same roads.
