Google Maps Rotation

14 posts in this topic

Lately I have been using google maps and yesterday I notice that the maps doesn't rotate. Is this a hardware or software limitation or a bug?

Google Maps rotates for me on my G300. Just like it always has done. Sure you haven't accidentally turned "auto-rotate" off? I've done that before. If all is set correctly then try rebooting the phone.

Do you mean using a thumb and a finger to rotate the map around? That has never worked for me. I assume it's a limitation with the phone.

I found rotation never worked on any rom until the release of B927 (2 fingered rotation that is). I also found that B926 had a problem with the compass not rotating the maps but that has since been fixed.

I'm on official OTA ICS in NZ. B936 and have never been able to use the 2 finger rotation, on the stock Gingerbread before that and it didn't work then either.

Try the rotation gesture for phones with crap digitizers; swipe two fingers horizontally across the maps screen.

It never worked for me either, till I tried your suggestion and found out it works perfectly, I was just doing it wrong! I feel pretty stupid, I was trying to rotate both fingers instead of swiping two fingers horizontally across the screen. Maybe this helps somebody else...

You were doing it right, there are two gestures; the one I posted, and the one you knew.

The one you knew is for devices with 'distinct' multi-touch, Google implemented the other for older (mostly) devices with a poorer digitizer.
