tabbed screens

what do you thing about having tabbed screens for Locus ?


Instead of fiddling around - selecting track - press "i" - press "Diagram"


or


doubleclick on screen - select right panel - choose Customer screen ....


just


swipe right => Diagram of current route/track with Position indicator


swipe left => show customer screen or geocaches nearby or POIs nearby or...


The action could be done either by swiping on a dedicated zone on mapscreen, or some tabs (like in browsers) or at bottom with two arrows - see screendump.


Content of the "screens" should be user-defined.


Reason behind: I heavily use Locus for guiding and tracking - so today - when idea was born. It was raining and I often wanted to check when the tophill is approaching. During walk to fiddle on screen is not so easy.. So I had to stop - fiddle - with wet fingers - just to know how the altitude course is.


And here I wished just click left or right on BIG butons :-)

hi, I am so surprised, that my exorbitant, brilliant, not-to-top, megaoversupertrooper idea only gets 2 votes :-) :(


Am I really the only one having this "problem" of fiddling around ? or are my fingers to humpty-dumpty.


I hope having explained precise enough. Otherwise please ask.


Dont forget to press +1 :-):-)

on a large screen (min 7") ofcourse I would prefer this "all-in-one" view - as I also suggested in this mentioned topic - , but considering some 3,5" phones, it could lead to a very small mapview.


Therefore this idea of "swiping" screens pops up ...


Nevertheless I vote for both ideas.... At least one of them to be realized I would highly appreciate...

Hi Rob,


I understand you idea, anyway


1) current plan is to improve Track information screen (more info at one place)

2) I also prefer idea with chart as a small overview on map (probably will be done in Dashboard)

3) we have also in head improved panel for track record


All this together should create something similar you want - simply and fast way to get information about current recorded track.


Tabs are definitely something, I don't want in Locus main screen. Closed
