161 - Map to not change as I pass certain areas

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1.Having the map open while moving. (i.e like flying with the map open as mini map)

What is the expected output?
To have the map open to a different zone other than the one I'm in while I fly around on my mount or flight master and not have the map constantly change back to the current zone I'm in.  I like to look at other zones for dailies, pets and many other things to look at a map for BUT as I move by any means the map keeps changing back to the zone I'm in.

What do you see instead?
Map keeps changing back to current map as you fly around while trying to look at different zones.

What version of the product are you using?

Do you have an error log of what happened?

Please provide any additional information below.
WoW without Mapster does what I want so its Mapster that does this. Maybe add an option to turn it on and off so that those who like it to change all the time can turn it on and those like me that don't want it to keep changing can turn it off.

Great add-on I've been using it since 08. I know I've asked this before but maybe now it can be added or fixed or what not.

    Much has changed in Mapster since 6.0, please re-open if this is still a problem.

    It should only ever change the map when you fly/walk into a new zone, and only if you're looking at the current zone map.

    I tested this just now, i was in Hyjal questing, and i switched my map to Uldum. Then i hopped on my mount and moved to felwood - the map didn't change for me.

    If i however have the Hyjal map open and then fly over the border, it changes to Felwood.

    Are you sure you don't have any other addons installed that might change this? Many addons change the map in order to detect coordinates.

    I agree. Even while on a NPC flight master if you open the map it always changes every time you pass a point of interest and changes to that point losing the map you were looking at.
