Title: Display distance numbers according to screen orientation
Post by: GOF007 on January 06, 2012, 12:33:19
Locus rotating those distance numbers (on Distance rings, Line to GPS~~~). It is difficult to read when those number are upside down.
I think it is better to fix the number display position according to screen orientation.

Exactly, I was thinking to write about that. Sometimes to check 'what value has this time ring' I need to move a screen a lot.

don't understand. All texts are correctly oriented at my phone, so when I hold it in hands, no matter what screen orientation is (landscape, portrait) and no matter how is map rotated, texts are still correctly placed towards me ...

This is what I mean.
The numbers can go upside down.

***EDIT
Now the distance rings are rotate according to device compass(which also rotate the number).

Enable hardware compass.
Show view(enable by Rotate button).
And you need to get a GPS lock so the distance rings show up.
When you rotate your phone the orange view indicator will move according to the compass, I think this make the distance rings move too.

For the number on Line to GPS seem to always rotate according to the degree (so it can get upside down at some degree).


** At first I think the rotation of distance rings were intended lol.

ah, got it ... it's as you wrote, only when you enable "Show view". When you enable "Rotate map" all is fine ... so fixed
