App: Follow mode and map orientation

Hi guys,

I’ve been using pro for a while now and I’ve got some
questions about the behaviour of the “follow location” mode.

If you set the map orientation to “GPS 3D” or “Compass 3D” the map
is rendered in a 3D layout. (by tapping on the compass icon)
However, if you then activate the “follow location” mode by pressing the
location button on the lower right corner of the screen the render mode
snaps back to the 2D rendering.

My questions are:

  1. Can the “follow location” mode be activated permanently?

And, more important:

  1. Can the 3D mode be kept even if you switch between “follow location”
    and the regular mode back and forth?

Or would this have to be a feature/change request?


  1. Can enable follow location mode at will and it shall work until disable it again.
    Or mean something different?

  2. Follow location mode uses by default the GPS 2D, which most users need.
    After enable it, can change the map orientation to GPS 3D or something else.

I dont think that most users need GPS 2D as the follow location mode. It would be great if you could fix the GPS 3D until you change manually.

Mean the follow location mode to remember (when turned on / off) the selected map orientation option?
That could be implemented. :slightly_smiling_face:

Can test it in Kurviger 1.11.8 (Beta).

Well, I only drive in GPS 2D… :thinking:

This isn’t about navigation, where map rotation is handled via settings or compass.

It’s about follow location mode, to remember its last map orientation user selection.

@Uli_LH has done a fine work describing the various orientation modes & options.


Implemented in Kurviger 1.11.9.
