Resize, zoom, and move your map

There are a couple of tricks you have to know to resize, zoom, and move your map around in ZwiftMap. This animation demonstrates it quickly, and below it the details are explained:

You can resize the windows in ZwiftMap after pressing Win+Alt+Z in Windows or Cmd+Alt+Z in macOS. Drag the borders or double click inside the window to maximise it.

To zoom in and out you have to switch mode with Win+Alt+S / Cmd+Alt+S. It also enables the ZwiftGPS menu and lets ZwiftGPS react to mouse and keyboard input. Now you can zoom in/out with your mouse wheel while your cursor is over the ‘Zoom here’ area top-right.

When you are in the ZwiftGPS input mode (after pressing Win+Alt+S / Cmd+Alt+S) you can shift the map around inside the window. Just click and drag anywhere on the map (except for the ‘Zoom here’ area and the menu control).


  1. I like to resize the map to get optimal use of the screen. Now if ZwiftGPS will keep focus so I don’t have to resize during my ride.

  2. If I know that function, but … sometimes it returns to its size alone.
    And also your friends or people who are in an event usually disappear.

  3. I run Zwift and Zwiftmap on a laptop with a track pad and no scroll wheel. Is there a way to zoom in without a mouse and scroll wheel?

    1. Sure. There are two ways:

      • You can swipe up or down with two fingers (like when scrolling in a page)
      • You can pinch or stretch out two fingers to zoom in or out
  4. I just tried this new version and the problem continues … I will try again another day
