Watch sensors
« on: January 22, 2019, 06:29:03 »
Hi,
If the phone with locus map installed does not have any sensors, say compass or baro, when using watch to navigate, record or just watching map does the watch's compass come come into account, does the map rotate, and also while recording which device gps sensor is in use?

Thanks,

Igor.

Hello Igor,
at the moment the watch sensors (with the exception of HR sensor synchronization support in Wear OS) are not used in either Wear OS or Samsung Gear/Galaxy Watch. The map autorotation is always computed strictly using phone's change in GPS location (or this is at least the intended behaviour, there has been actually a bug in this behaviour and the fix is waiting to be released in the next Locus Map).
I might try to experiment with map auto-rotation directly on the Wear OS watch using the watch sensors but I cannot yet confirm if this is something that will be usable and thus something we would want to add to the add-on.
