It currently works at all resolutions. However at 24 and 22 I could not 
note any speed difference on GPS (Vista HCx, which has a rather slow 
processor, on Dakota or other "new" units I would expect the difference 
to be noticeable even at lower resolutions)

Labels and, and that is more important the tooltips show up at completly 
wrong places. And if you drag the map in Mapsource, you're not dragging 
from the point of departure, but the place where the tooltip showed up 
wrongly, so when you pan the map jumps really weird sometimes (you don't 
end up where you wanted to, but somewhere else).

I'm not sure how the code works currently, but ideally it should be 
working on every resolution separately. For example while at resolution 
21-24 I add the name of bicycle, or mtb routes to the name of the 
street, I don't do this for 21-18 - hence more parts of the same road 
can be merged - and hence more speed increase. Also the tooltip problem 
is less apparent on 21 or 20 because the distance in meters it shows up 
wrong stays consistent - so it is much on screen fewer pixels.

Also on the GPS the tooltip shows wrong, and here it's even worse, cause 
it might be outside of the display.

Therefore (and as it's advantages only become apparent once you are in 
low resolutions) - I would like to have it working from 16-20 or 16-21 
(would have to test this on the field), but definitely not in resolution 
22 and 24.
