Possibility to hide ALL buttons

I sometimes like to be able to hide all buttons and only see the map itself within Locus. This was possible in Locus 3 but you can no longer make all buttons disappear in Locus 4 - The buttons for settings, map screen content and my location remain displayed.


Is it possible to please also make these disappearable, as in the previous version?

I had the desire for development too. But it was rejected then. But now I got used to it and does not want to go back. Whenever I wanted to do something I had to click twice to show functions.

If this feature comes, I have a suggestion. A small semicircle down in the middle. If I click on it then the buttons for XX seconds are displayed. This semicircle is only visible if the function "Hide" is activated. This area is released in the dashboard.

I really like the „clean“ appearance of Locus 3, especially on compact devices. Not being able to hide these buttons is a clear drawback. In LM4 the compass needle consumes an extra row and the bottom sizes are not adjustable anymore (via expert settings or config file). And what is really irritating is, that depending on whether the lower panel is visible or not their position changes.

Thinking on my phone holder at the handlebar of my bike, I even want to be able to change the position of these buttons and to move them up again.

In summary 100% support for the proposal!

Excellent work Menion! Dare I ask whether the setting is available via presets?

this topic is marked Completed but not all buttons can be hidden - the multi-purpose location/ lock button is still always visible

You already have 4.1 version? ;)

The new button control is Map screen and centre and rotate, from 4.1

Todays beta update is 4.0.2....

It's things like this that make Locus the best app in the Play store.


Thank you Menion!

Hi guys,

do these new settings work correctly for you all here in the recent 4.1 version? I've noticed a minor problem on the forum with the centering button. If there is any problem, please let me know, thanks!

Hi Menion,

So far, I only observed a cosmetic issue and I am not sure if you can reproduce it: The centering and zoom buttons are hidden, while the lower and right panel are displayed – somehow the hiding is out of sync.

Way to reproduce:

“Link with presets” in Navigation settings need to be active!

(In my case this shifts the map center, turns on map rotation and fixes center to gps position)

Panel settings

Start Navigation via button on side panel.

-> Panels are visible, centering and zoom button hidden

The same happens if the navigation is stopped.

Best wishes,

GuRa

p.s. great to have this functionality again!

Hi Menion,

The centering and zoom buttons work fine for me.

This means that they work according to the settings on the "Panels and buttons" tab. Thanks for the good work.

as mentioned here all buttons can be hidden except with some combination of settings I can't get the main menu button to reappear
