Own location not in the centre of the screen but lower

I would like to propose a new option to choose where to center the map to the current location. At the moment, the current location can be ' centred' in the centre of the screen.

 In order to use a bigger part of the screen towards the direction where we are heading (I usually keep ' rotate map' on while biking/hiking), it would be nice to center a bit lower than the screen center; for example in portrait mode, it could be at 2/3rd of the screen on the y axis and in the middle of the x axis. This could be set as preference in the settings menu.

Examples from Garmin screens:

Sorry to often refer to Garmin in my features wish list, but even though their interface is not intuitive and user friendly, they just got some of those small things that make it easier to use while outdoor, like also automatic track recording.
