Presenter mode

Thomas Winkel shared this idea 3 years ago
Declined

Hi,

would it be possible to connect some smartphones to a group, one as the presenter and the other ones listener?

Zoom stage and center of map will be transferred from the presenter to the listeners.

Connection should be Bluetooth if possible (poor reception on outdoor trips), otherwise Internet.

Presenter could be switched automatic (first come, first served. New role allocation after some seconds of standstill).

Background: We often discuss how to proceed the trip outdoor in a group. It is annoying to do this with one phone, especially in bigger groups and in sunny conditions.

Anyhow, great App!

Best regards,

Thomas

A very courageous project :-)

I would see this for Addon or use a different screen sharing app.

Good day Thomas,

this is really interesting idea and I have absolutely no idea, how to develop something like this :). So have to say sorry, this won't be developed.

Anyway by your "Presenter idea", you probably try to solve any problem you have when travel in group. What is this biggest problem/what is your use case? You try to point on any place on map where to meet after one hour? You try to share any track or point with other people? Maybe on some problems may exists easier solution, then this really complicated task.

Thank you for understanding.

Screen Share on Android level should help this scenario. Yet - you have only ONE master then - which may become a problem in a group of 20 masters :-)

Hi, thanks for your comments.

We will try the screensharing app, thanks for the link.

The only use case is to discuss the route live on the trip in a group. Either if we start the trip without a plan or if we have to replan for some reason. Everybody has locus installed and has something to contribute to the discussion. It would be nice if everybody could follow what the presenter is talking about on his own device. An other advantage over a screensharing app would be if any listener could overtake the presenter role smoothly.

But, of course I understand that this is a very special request that is not a key scenario for locus. :)


Best regards,

Thomas

Hello,

something that may be close to your use-case is live-tracking feature we are currently working on. There is a plan to allow sharing text messages, certain places (point on certain location on the map) and maybe in future also some tracks & routes with a group of people. Currently, this is not possible, but suggest to watch the progress.
