I have a crazy idea ... but i think that it should be useful and achievable.

Please, imagine ...
Now that our smartphones are more and more powerful, I think it is possible to consider having an extra use of our maps / atlas .tar with a rotation mode in the direction of the march and not necessarily north up .

Scenario considered :
- in compass screen mode, maybe could it be possible to use the "map image" of the .tar format with rotation instead of the GPS compass?
- roads / tracks / wpts could also be displayed on the rotary map !
- zoom commands (+ -) should be used to change maps/layers as usual ...
- it would be very useful for an instantaneous and intuitive orientation in many "outdoor" activities.
- a compass or rotary map choice would be necessary in the settings.

Crazy Question
