new map and 'search this area' function

Recommended Posts

Hi there,
I'll try to explain as good as possible in English.
With the new map, I have the following problem :
Entering a city (any city), I can see the caches in this area. Before (with the old map), you could say : delete filters, and than you could see the caches, scrolling the map to any direction. Now, when scrolling the map up or down, left or right, I have to click 'search this area' each time in order to see the caches in that area. Before I saw them ALL immediately.
Is there a way, I can change that in the settings somewhere ?

Thanks a lot in advance,

greets,

The Power of Three,

solange & suzette

This is more of a user preference.  Personally I prefer it when a map does not refresh results as I'm panning a map.   I will frequently be looking at the map and want to scroll/pan to another area far away from the current location and will typically zoom on on the map so that I can re-center to another location on the other side of the country or even to another continent.  I would prefer that the map not continuously refresh results as it's moving.   For me, using a "search this area" once I've centered to map on an area I want to view works better.  I have seen some mapping sites which provide a "Refresh results when moving the map" checkbox which provides the option to the user for both behaviors.

If it's layers, I want it to auto update (just as the map tiles do) while panning. If it's search results, I don't want it requerying the search every time the map moves. The old map was a layer-style overlay, the new map is a search result plotter. Very different implementations

I don't like this at all!  On the website when I click on recent caches the screen is very unreadable.  Please put something so we can click to go back to the old version.

If you're trying to get out of the 'new search/map' test, then you can go HERE and select "select this link".

 

That Help Center page is accessible by clicking on "What's this" at the upper-right corner of the 'test' map, then "Learn more".
