Specfic to the CalTopo phone apps, is there a way to create a feature that allows users to use a combination of the phone's physical buttons to center the map, as an alternative to tapping the circle near the lower right of the screen?

benefit to users: This would reduce the need to remove gloves to use the CalTopo app.

Thanks, great products!

    Hey Tom,

    Thanks. I understand where you are coming from here. Unfortunately most phones will not let non-native apps have access to the physical buttons on the phone, and lots of new phones don't even have buttons or only have the one power button.
