Hands free (gravity sensors) map scrolling proposal

db12 shared this idea 3 months ago
Gathering feedback

add an option to use gravity sensors to scroll map left/right/up/down

behavior can vary/optional: either regulate scroll speed by tilt, or scroll piece of map by single tilt. perhaps placing device vertically may switch to zoom/rotation mode by tilt.

it is very useful when being in gloves and nice addition to already existing zooming by volume buttons

also it would be fine to have one-hand option to turn on/off map screen:
- via shake
- and/or via placing device horizontally for some time
- perhaps kind of power long/double click to enable/disable this behavior

That's 2 suggestions in one post. Only one suggestion per post. Otherwise no one can vote for it and implementation is not guaranteed.
Screen on and off with one hand. I do this via the hardware button. But you can also implement it via Tasker.

hope it is clean enough from topic name what is the primary idea (edit option is already gone)

when using armband, second hand is required to press button. especially inconvenient while riding bicycle.

I have my phone on the handlebars (stem) when I'm cycling. I switch on the screen with a BT remote control. This is attached to the handlebars. It even works when braking.
