Center Map on finger tap
« on: January 10, 2013, 18:52:40 »
Hi menion,
there is currently only one function that i am missing in locus:
I used to use a different map app before and loved the fact that i could click anywhere to center the map on that point. I find that a lot more practical when i want to center the map on a specific point (e.g. to place a Waypoint there or just to see the distance to that point). So i was wondering if you could maybe create an option to center the map on where you tap (or double tap)?
I am sure I wouldn´t be the only one to find this practical.

Hi eldron,
your feature is already implemented for a long time: Locus Settings / Map-control & panels / The style map control -> Google

Are you sure? For me it doesn't work.

Hi tommi,
I am already using the google control style, but a single tap on the map does not do anything. I would like a single (or double tap) to center the map onto the point where i tapped, instead of having to swipe the map until the desired point is in the center.
Currently a double tap with the google control style zooms in.

you wrote that you used this in other apps - and isn't happening quite often, that you tap on any place instead of icon (for example) and you move map even if you don't want? I can imagine usage of this, because often you tap on any icon, or track and not everytime you hit it perfectly

Hi menion,
I never had the problem of not hitting the button and thereby accidently moving the map to a differnt place, but i see your point. Maybe it´s possible to just add it as an option that can be switched off? Or having to use double tap to activate it? As i said before, i think it makes placing a waypoint much easier and is a great way of instantly checking the distance to a certain point by just tapping on it.

eldron, I'm not sure about this. So for this idea, you'll need more votes if you want to realize it. GetSatisfaction is correct place for this
