Toggle map center between current location and current target

Wolfgang shared this idea 11 months ago

Hi,

often I have to following situation:

I start a guidance to a point. Maybe this point is located 40km far away from me. Currently the map shows my current location. Now I would like to see the map around my target but with same zoom level. So now I have to move the map very often. The other option would be to change the zoom level move the map to the target and then change the zoom level back.

Much better would be to have a button to toggle between current location and target location. Maybe as long or double tap on the current location button.

Would be great to have this added to locus :)

Thanks Wolfgang

Hello Wolfgang

in planned Locus Map 4, the display of the point screen will be a lot faster. So with active guiding to the cache, so with a visible top panel, you may do what I show in the attached video. I believe it will be definitely a lot faster than with "scrolling".

Usable? LM4 is planned for the first quarter 2021.

Hi,

could it be that this does not yet work with v4.0.0 with Geocaches?

Hello Wolfgang,

ah sorry for this. I'm checking the video I recorded a few months ago and the final version in Locus Map 4 is a little bit different. What happens to you when you tap on the visible top guidance panel? A map should center on the point immediately. Does it happen to you? I just noticed, that when "map centering" is enabled, the map immediately moves back to your current location. This will be fixed in the next version.

Hi Menion,

the behavior is the same as you described. Sometimes I see on the map preview a round button but never on Geocaches. I guess it's not really a button and it does not matter where to touch the map.

I am looking forward to the next version.

By the way: V4 is so awesome!!! Many thanks!
