Changing from North Up to Road Ahead
« on: June 27, 2018, 09:05:58 pm »
So I tried out the Mobil App on a short tour, and found the map displayed North Up, and I was pedaling south. I can't imagine that there isn't a way to have the map display with road ahead being up. Pleas let me know how to do that. Thanks.

I haven't used that app, but on other navigation apps that I have used:
- tap the compass 1x and it keeps the road on the top of the phone and you travel towards the top of the phone
- tap the compass 1x (again) and it always orients the map with North at the top of the phone

Try that and see if it works.

You should be able to place two fingers on the map and then move them to rotate the map to your preferred direction.

I'm a little confused about this.  Does this mean that you need to manually change the orientation of the screen when you change direction of travel?

On the current version you should be able to go to settings and select "Move the map with me" to get it to move along with you after you have set the orientation by spinning the map with two fingers. In an upcoming release, you will have the option to select the top of map to be either "North" or "In the direction of travel".
