#998 closed enhancement/feature request (fixed)

Search button on the device should start search menu

Reported by: Owned by: kamikaaze
Priority: major Milestone: version 0.5.1
Component: port/android Version: git master
Severity: normal Keywords: search button, input, button, patches


  • Navit version: navit-svn-4879
  • Device: Samsung Galaxy Tab P1000
  • OS: Android 2.2
  • latest map from planet extractor

Many Android devices have a search button. Nothing happens when pressing this button, except that the device vibrates. Device vibrating is nice, but Navit should also do something. When this button is pressed, Navit should start search menu.

Other device buttons are working correctly. I am referring to menu and back buttons.

The supplied Patch adds this functionality. ( Opens the Android search Activity )

Is it expected behaviour to have this hook active when we're inside internal gui?

Menu key is disabled during that time.
