    just navigation

    I played around with the Navigation today and two things came up:

    1 - Can I just use the Navigation feature where there is not necessarily an end point just the map on the screen and an icon representing my current location?

    2 - When Navigation is on and the car is moving is there a setting to enable keeping the icon pointed up and the map turns ? This has a name in my Garmin as an option but cannot find it in the settings.

    thank you

    1-Yes, I did this today, but it was a little easier for me as I have the dock. You'd have to find the icon on the phone to put it into Car Home mode. Then, select View Map. From there, use the menu for My Location. BAM!!!!, you have the nav on and following your movement.

    2-Haven't figured this one out yet. I know it did it when I was ACTUALLY using it to guide me to Tampa yesterday, but if you're using it as in point 1, not sure.

    Hope I helped somewhat.

    As far as I know, no there isn't. That being said I put in a feature request for one to be added.

    Issue 5870 - android - Nautical Navigation mode - Project Hosting on Google Code

    You can head over, log in, and put a start by it to hopefully increase the likelyhood it gets added.
