Bluetooth button integration
here is an idea for integration of a Bluetooth button into locus!
So far I used locus with 100% display brightness of my smartphone, but this costs a lot of battery power!
But to switch to 100 % brightness is only necessary if you look at the locus map for navigation.
So I linked my smartphone to a 5 button Bluetooth device, which can toggle the display brightness between e.g. 10 to 100 % via a small tasker program.
I attached the button close to my handlebar, so I can handle the button just with my thumb.
The center button toggles the brightness. The buttons above and below the center button can be used for zooming in and out. The remaining two buttons could be programed for some other tasks.
Even with the additional Bluetooth connection is the energy consumption of the battery by far reduced.
So if you could integrate a waterproof Bluetooth button (may be you can sell it!) into your software would help a lot!
Thanks for considering my I idea.
P.S.: I attached a jpg, which shows my handlebar bag together and the GPS-shell from Ortlieb together with my Samsung smartphone. Next to the right bar you can see the round (1 inch diameter) Bluetooth button from Satechi (Media button).
