Don't forget that PC based chartplotter software can often run two instances in side-by-side windows. You can zoom one window in for local details, and keep the other window zoomed out for big picture display with far-off AIS/radar target. I do this routinely on my computer, so I can monitor both without having to manipulate the zoom level.
