"my location" marker on the map


(igor makovsky) #1

hi,

is there any plans to put “my location” marker on the map?

people travelling with mobile phones feel confused when using maphub on the streets, because they do not understand their location so it’s pretty much difficult to navigate right and they switch to other apps.

very needed feature for truly interactive maps, i suppose.

i thought everybody would agree that this have to be an essential feature (

Hi Igor,

What do you mean exactly? There is the “My Location” button in the lower left corner. Can you explain what is missing from that feature?

Would you like to have it always-on, and constantly tracking your position when you move on the map?

Yes, I want people look at the map on a mobile and see their current location on the map, while they’re travelling. Like in a common map app. Otherwise it’s difficule to navigate without putting “you’re here” arrow.

Is “current location” good, like in the non-embed version? Or you need continous, moving location?

continious, moving location would be absolutely perfect )
but at least static current location button (like in the non-embed version) is ok to start with, i suppose

Sure, I’ll add the static location button right away, and then think about a way to do moving location with the same button.
