Distance to target should be behind the arrow in close range
« on: September 20, 2013, 22:15:10 »
When the target is far the line to target shows the distance both at the target location and at GPS location.
That's OK.

When the target is close the distance is only shown between target and GPS.
It should be the other way around, only the reading BEHIND GPS location should be shown in this case.
This has two advantages:
1) the target area on the map stays clear, you can see the map details
2) the distance acts as a pointer (actually arrow tail) and indicates the direction to the target.
