#463 closed enhancement/feature request (invalid)

internal gui: keyboard should be qwerty

Reported by: arne.anka Owned by: cp15
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: gui/internal Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:


imo the internal gui's keyboard should be at least qwerty, not simply a-z. i append a small patch. btw: toggling between upper case and lower case seems pretty much an overkill, upper _or_ lower case should be sufficient (every special char/umlaut exists in bose cases, even the stupid german sz ligature "ß").

if that gets implemented, please make it configurable. A qwerty keyboard requires more characters in one row than the abcd one, which may become a problem when operating a QVGA-portrait device with bare fingers.

I don't see the benefit of a qwerty keyboard here. The case is mostly useful for bookmarks naming.

About 'ss' : related to #427

I'm closing the ticket (because i'm not convinced about the use of qwerty) but feel free to reopen (and argument ;) )

I feel a qwerty keyboard is better. Most people are already familiar with qwerty keyboards, esp with the rise of tweeter and text messaging on qwerty soft-keyboards. it takes me far longer to type even a city name on a ABC keyboard than on a qwerty one. This would not be so bad if Navit supports the use of the device's soft-keyboard, but Navit is pretty bad in this area as well.
