Default Zoom Levels

Raymarine 70 series(HSB) or the Furuno Navnets question. I have used the Garmin Chartplotters and have been spoiled with their incredible zoom detail down to 20 feet. When I look at the Navnet and Ray series it seems that you can only zoom down to 1/4 mile and keep all the detail on the chart. The Ray 70 series only lets you zoom down to 1 mile inshore and 3 miles offshore (Canyons). When running in night/fog would having your radar/chart overlay on 3 miles be sufficient to show those near targets? Same question when running tight channels inland on 1/4 mile scale. If you use these systems please tell how you like them. Dave
