Allow for a user-defined default zoom in Maps
I'm working on an Europe-wide country-level project that includes the European part of Russia, and I use several map visualizations. However since Russia is a huge country, the maps zoom out too much by default.
Is there a way to set a fixed zoom, or at least to select just the European part of Russia?
With the October release of Power BI Desktop, you can now disable auto-zoom, allowing you to keep the map at a specific zoom level. For more info, check out the latest Power BI Desktop blog post: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/power-bi-desktop-october-feature-summary/

I will put this highly on my wish list. I produce US state level maps and I would like a precise way to control the zooming, perhaps as a setting in Focus | Edit menus. Thanks.

Any news on this?
As Peter mentioned, it would be good that when selecting a location (a village in my case) the maps should zoom to the location not to country level.
I need my map to show only Nigeria please help.
I need the option to 'lock' a map at the zoom scale level I desire. It is not feasible to constantly zoom back in after changing a slicer value. Insights at a Geo level are critical for my organisation. Please prioritise this! Thanks.

Any word on this idea. When I select data points to visualize on a map--point may be located in San Francisco and Northern CA, others in Boston and Eastern MA and so on.
I was looking at a demo where selected points had a map focus on the data points--with a small margin around the edge data points.
How on earth did they do that...hopefully this will be more than a fixed focus but an active focus.

Why don't we see a zoom in, zoom out (+ -) option on the Map visual like that of globe map custom visual.

All my points are based in the UK, located using the postcode, but when selecting a single contract I would like to show the location within say 50 or 100 miles, currently the location is displayed on a map of the whole UK with a single point.

I agree with Daniel Bartley's recommendation
Please fix this.
