#653 closed enhancement/feature request (invalid)

Please change navit timout attribute into seconds

Reported by: niccolo Owned by: KaZeR
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: core Version: git master
Severity: Keywords:


When the user scrolls the map, it stays there until "timeout" number of GPS updates, then the map jumps back to the current location of the active vehicle.

I think that "GPS updates" is barely supported by humans, and quite unpredictable. I think that seconds is by far more comfortable.

I use Navit svnr3535 on OpenMoko FreeRunner.

Well, in fact most GPS works at a 1Hz rate, meaning one update per second. The main reason for using gps updates is that the map won't jump back if you don't get an updated position : where would it jump back then? If you have no updates, the map will stay where you scrolled it.

I don't feel that it's a real issue, so i'm closing the ticket. If you disagree, feel free to reopen.

on android you dont get updates in regular intervals. you get the next update of your position ONLY when the position changes. this timeout is not good. toggle is better

there is another ticket already for this subject, but i cant find it now ...
