Is there a way to UNlock? I sometimes wish for this when on a map that has enabled remote viewing. I would like to see my own vicinity before unpausing.
No there isn't. A lock can only dissappear if the player you've locked onto quits.
On the other hand, you can't see your own vicinity either when you've just joined the game.
