fixed orientation, bigger information fields

Post  Lion on Sun Jan 16, 2011 3:24 pm

Im really hooked of your great program, thanks so much for it! I´m new to it, and really enthusiastic.

But after a few runs, i have also 2 feature requests:
1: Fixed horizontal orientation of the screen: the auto-rotation-feature is nice, but im wearing my phone on the forearm (with a jacket) - so i need the horizontal orientation.
During running, i am certainly moving my arms, and so my phone is switching continously between the two views.
Would be great this could be selected in the options (horizontal/vertical/autorotate)
(if is deselect the auto-rotation, i have just the fixed vertical orientation)

2: there is an option: big buttons --> it would be great if i could select bigger information fields too (speed, disdance...). During a short look on the phone while running, its not easy to recognize....

Thanks in advance, Lion

Hi, Lion;

If you disable 'auto-rotation' in landscape position, then the screen should keep this orientation. The same if you disable 'auto-rotation' in portrait position. Working in my nexus (only if you have the device rotated counterclockwise) and in my dream.

I am thinking in a solution for big information fields.

Thank you for your quick anwer.

on my Motoroly Defy, the screen does not keep the landscape position (neither clockwise nor counterclockwise).
I hold the phone exact in landscape position --> turn of auto-rotate (and do not move the phone) --> map switches to vertical position Crying or Very sad

Ok, i have done a little more testing, also with a newer ROM of my defy --> no way to fix the orientation in landscape position.

It would be great i you could make it adjustable in any of the future versions.... Rolling Eyes
