Getting an Accurate Radar Heading


This is probably more of a feature request unless someone has already done it.

For calibrating the googlemaps radar heading it would be very useful to:
  • Display a line on the googlemap showing the center of the radar beam and which rotates with the radar
  • Display a crosshair in the center of the panorama window

I think this type of radar "calibration mode" would make it much easier to find the exact heading value.

I am not sure how to accomplish the first part; the second is trivial.

Currently, when calibrating the radar heading, I set fov to a very small value so that I can zoom in to get a very narrow radar beam and a good heading on a landmark. This method works well enough except when I inevitably forget to change the fov back to a reasonable value. *sad*
