Last time I brought up the lacking of bluetooth functionality and voice dialing capabilities... Today I'm asking you to bring notice to 'Night Mode' for maps or navigation. I've owned 2 gps's for my car over the last 4 years. Both have had intuitive night modes... In that they turn to an inverted color scheme, or dark color scheme to ease night viewing and reduce hindrance while driving. Currently while using google map navigation at night there is no night mode. It just blasts you in the face!..... There is an ISSUE on Google Code I'd like to ask you to 'star' up. This is basic functionality that shouldn't have been overlooked and hinders driving. There is are also mentions on Google Product Ideas. Be sure to add a 'check' there! Issue 4787 - android - Navigation - night mode - Project Hosting on Google Code Google Product Ideas - Night Mode search As always I like to bring more people to google code issues on Androind and increase the user feedback directly to the source! ___________ Been playing a little bit and for a short term work around for maps driving: -log into google maps web. go to mymaps and create one called dark. create a big box around your city/region. fill it black, set opacity to your liking. Then you can load it as a layer on andriod gmaps. -!!doesn't work for navigation mode... only for normal map mode. -!!causes initial zoom out to the entire boxed area, but you can zoom back in and enjoy a much dimmer gmaps for night driving. ___________ Any ideas? Thanks for you time!
