I have another wish-list item for the 'auto-centre' setting.
It would be great if the button was a toggle that was visually "down" when
the setting was active, and "up" when it was inactive.  A small thing, but it
seems to bother me.

Also I noticed a peculiarity which I haven't tried to reproduce yet, but:

I went for a 1 hour bicycle ride with tangogps recording my path.  It was set
on zoom 13.
When I zoomed in (to 14) to have a closer look at the path, it only showed
the last half hour or so.  When I zoomed it again (to 15) it was the last 15
or 20 minutes. (these are fairly rough figures).
I zoom back out to 13 and I see the whole path.
I this expected.

An hour later (stationary the whole time, but on) the results were the same.
I didn't lose any more of the path as time progressed, but I didn't get it
back either.
