Slope calibration

Hello, I wish to add calibration to slope value (gyroscope sensor). Hold the device where it's flat and calibrate this value as zero slope.

I suggest to show positive values for uphill direction (359° = 1°, 358° = 2°, etc) and negative values, for downhill direction, it's more intuitive.

If it's possible by gyroscope resolution I'd prefer to show the slope with 1 decimal point precision.

I use the gyro sensor in the"GPS Status" app, and it is very accurate/ 100% reliable. Would be valuable addition in Locus than deriving slope from GPS elevation when device doesn't not have a altimeter/ barometer.
