Blackberry Maps on Storm (Verizon) - How can I recenter the map during GPS tracking?

Greets folks!

 

I'm hoping someone has an answer, or can point me to documentation.

 

I've recently moved to a new city and have found the Maps app to be very helpful.  However there's one nagging question that's driving me crazy; how can I recenter the map on my GPS position after moving the map?

 

I'll be using GPS navigation, and either accidentally or deliberately scroll the map.  The GPS navigation icon still shows navigation is still taking place, and if I scroll the map manually back to my position it still shows the location icon.  However the map no longer moves with the location icon.

 

Any way to set the map to center on the location icon again?  The only option I've found so far is to stop and restart GPS navigation which takes time, etc.

Hello Falconeer and welcome to the forums!

 

 

When using the Maps application you should be able to snap back to your location so long as you have "GPS Navigation" set to started and your position is currently being tracked.  If you pan off the course and lose sight of your position you should be able to press the "Escape" key immediately to the left of the "End Call" button while viewing the map.  Just make sure that you only press it once or you may find yourself looking at the directions list again.

 

 

hope this helps  Smiley Happy
