converting zoom level between maps

Sorry, noob question here.  How can I convert the zoom level between maps with different spatial references?  For example, if someone zooms into Chicago, and then switch maps I want the new map to be zoomed into Chicago as well.

I've been looking into the spatial reference scale & resolution properties, but haven't been able to get it working.  My other thought was to create an envelope using the 4 points at the corners of the display, and create a new envelope from converted point values when the new map is opened.  Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
