scale larger than 400m not possible anymore after upgrade

That's true. I had to limit the maximum scale to 400 meters since otherwise there are too many nodes in the view. In a well mapped large city at 400 meters scale you can easily get 40000 nodes fitting on the screen... (on iPad). It just takes too long to load the map from the database at scales larger than 400 meters.
An alternative was to create multiple maps for different scales (drop and move nodes, join ways), but the algorithm is not trivial and already now the map download is slow. And, actually, for using the App for OSM logging I never need a scale greater than 400 meters, do you?

I'd love to have bigger scales again (as before). I don't use maps, I just show all tracks and if I am in an area with few previously recorded tracks it's quite empty with 400m.
I am using OSMTrack to collect and display my tracks. OSMTrack is the best app for this purpose. With none of the others I know I can do the same.

I can remove the limitation for the case if map is invisible. Since traces were originally supposed as a temporary substitution for the map, my reasoning was that most of the people will use map instead of traces.

That would be great! Can I ask you for another small change? Please reverse the order of the list of tracks. Latest on top would be useful, at least for me. Thanks.

Sure, it makes sense.
