Sunrise/sunset - based on map center instead of gps

In Norway, the days are shorter and shorter for the time being, so I check when the sun sets before I go on a canoe trip. This works very well in Locus.


I have noticed that even though I move around the map (over a bit larger distances) these times do not change. I therefore expect that they are based on GPS position. I think it would be better to use the map center instead? Then we would have had the opportunity to both check the sunset where we are now and how it is elsewhere.

I think this is rather very specific request, and it may be better served by a dedicated Sunrise/set applications. E.g. Sun Board.

You would have also all three twilight times and Sun azimuts.

I don't need this. I just think it could be fine to use map-center instead for gps.

or you use "Weather" online service inside locus

visible values are always for mapcenter

I knew this property, but have not actually discovered that sunset was included there. Thanks for the tip.
