Allow map updating before starting the screen timeout

I used Locus Map for Wear a lot in the past week and it's great to check the position on the map without using the smartphone.

I noticed however that with ambient screeen OFF when I turn the watch towards me to see the map view sometimes it takes a bit more time to update the map and then the watch switches off the screen to conserve battery too soon. I have almost a second to "read the map" and it's too little!

Would it be possible to start counting the screen timeout time after the map has been updated?

If there is a communication error and the map doesn't update in 3-5 seconds than the screen can be switched off immediately, but this is not the normal case.

You are right, thanks for noticing this issue. Even without communication error this may be happening with slower phones or a lot of overlays/track/POIs on the map. I will try to figure out how to solve this, because this is definitely a usability problem.
