    Hi there,

    I have a Motorola G4, which I am very happy with.
    However I am somewhat bemused with Device Orientation facility.
    i.e the facility to rotate the streetview image by rotating/tilting the phone and using the inbuild gyro to move the image.

    This does not seem to work with Google Maps/Streetview using the standard apps.

    However, if I go to a Rightmove property advert (via their standard web site), in the Map View the Device Orientation works fine. This seems to use Google maps and has the Mobile icon allowing you to enable/disable Device Orientation.
    I do not get this option in the normal google maps/streetview apps

    So how do I resolve this?

    Cheers
    MD

    I don't know the answer, but it would probably be best to post in the Moto G4 area, although as of yet it isn't getting much traffic so you might need to go to XDA. This problem does not seem to effect the G3.
