    Is it possible to have the map rotate as you drive so you are always going "UP" on the screen like Google maps does? I love this app!

    For the moment it's not possible but tis feature is in the pipe and has to be carefully optimized to not drain the battery even if it's charging ;-)

    If you like my application please rate and comment it on the market to tell the other what you think about it ;-)

    Mail me if you have a problem of suggestion

    So is this app popular enough yet to give accurate results in a decently populated area?

    Also a search on the market for "realtime traffic" only brings up Traffic USA for Android 1.5 with 2 stars...

    The best way to know is to try it ;-)

    But as far as I can see my application is pretty well used world wide if you have look to Real Time Traffic you can see where users are ;-)

    You can also search by key "monthorin" so you can see the plugin if your phone is on Android 1.6 and more

    I use and like this application. The only negative thing I can say about it is that the top information bar takes up too much screen space and the screen doesn't center enough when traveling north. This means there is very little of the map showing to the north. Also, when a person is traveling north, it is very hard to see what is ahead because the "Your Location icon" might be all the way up to the status bar before it gets centered in the screen again.

    Is it possible to hide the status screen (user selected), or make it smaller, or center the your position icon more frequently?

    Thanks,

    Have you tried going to Menu > Preferences > Follow me Frame Size and changing it to a smaller percentage?

    Yes it's the aim of this preference. You can ask the cursor to stay in this frame expressed in screen size percentage.

    If you feel the notification bar and title bar takes too much place on your screen you can also play with Menu > Preferences > Progress Bar and Notification bar options.

    Unfortunately it's pretty hard to make the map rotate as it takes too much CPU and too much network accesses and by th way reduce battery life

    Thanks everyone. I made the suggested changes and also found so other settings that helped show more screen too (like hiding Street Names).

    I think this will work much better.

    On a side note, how long does the collaborative traffic display? It seems like it shows a persons track for perhaps an hour or so. Is that right?

    So we either use this or google navigation app? Or does this tie in with google navigation?

    Collaborative Traffic is erased after 30 minutes.
