Provide blank or transparent or hiding option for top status panel
I am trying to reduce the chance of unintended tapping a top row Locus button while performing a single wave gesture to toggle the display on & off. On my phone the IR proximity detection only works reliably with an object very close to the screen - close enough that a tap may also occur by accident. I have "given up" full screen mode as this places all buttons closer to the IR/ proximity sensor, and I have moved all my user defined buttons from the top to the right side. I then had to move all custom dashboard fields from (original) right side to left side. Of course, this results in wasted space, but I really want to use the single wave gesture control while cycling instead of having to press the tiny power button while wearing gloves. I don't need any info displayed in the top panel (screen cap below), for me it is wasted space, so my suggestion is to provide a 9th option in the list: blank or transparent, or alternate method to hide this auto-sizing panel completely.
