Shortcut for switchig between GPS and compass for map orientation

Hi,


while in general it is a great feature, in some cases automatic switchig between GPS and compass (for map orientation) has its drawbacks:

1.

On my bike, when I stop moving, it takes quite a while before Locus

switches to compass, especially if GPS signals are bad. In such a

situation it would be nice to be able to switch to compass orientation

quickly without having to wait until Locus realizes that I have stopped

moving.

2. When I push or carry my bike, after a while Locus uses

compass orientation although I am moving. The reason is that the lower

limit for automatic switching is 1 m/s (3.6 km/h). Sorry, but sometimes I

am just slower ;).

As a solution for both scenarios, may I suggest to add to the right side bar or the quick-switch

panel a shortcut to chose whether orientation is based on GPS or

compass?
