Enhancement: support for the Back button on Android devices

Reported by: dandv Owned by: cp15
Priority: minor Milestone: want patch / contribution
Component: port/android Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:
Cc: skliarie, sanderd17@…


Many Android phones have a back button, which is used by most Android applications to go back. It therefore becomes a habit to press the Back button to go back from nested menus.

It would be nice if the Android Navit port supported the Back button.

This must be a trivial change... Isn't there any android developers working on navit??

The problem is that the menu isn't an android menu, so you need to manually implement it. If it were, there is not much to do. I've been able to get the back button doing something: it exits navit if you press the back button. This is not the wanted behaviour.

Someone must have done something on this. In the latest svn it is working in many cases...
