Make "center map to current GPS position" quicker by offering it as dashboard button

Showing the bottom bar is mostly required to center map to

current GPS position. I'd like to do that without showing the bottom

bar (which is hidden after a few seconds), so via dashboard. In Dashboard Editor, please add "Current GPS

position" as source in "Various" (like "start track record" button).

During each hike of last week I was longing for that feature. I often moved the map, e.g. to decide which way of a crossing to choose, check OSM data, see how far something is, ... and then wanted to return to current GPS position. It's my only reason to use the bottom icon bar; I would prefer to use this space for the map.


Hi, I have the same problems.

I think it is a good idea to have an additional "Current GPS Position" button or it is possible to move the GPS button in the bottom bar to the right for example.

I am a right-handed person and I always have to spread my finger over the cell phone if I want to center the map ;-)


From the view point of Locus team, this is probably seen as solved: In Locus v4.8, "centre current GPS position" is not a dashboard option but the bottom bar (where the button was already present in v3) has been massively reworked & can now be customized, so the desire to hide this bar vanished for me in v4 – but that does not help me personally as I won't switch from v3 to v4 in forseeable future because of the gross mismatch of v4 subscription silver/gold-feature-matrix with my use cases (details in other topics).
