    Feature Req: Click & Hold the 'Back to Main' button = Last module used.

    David,

    Would you consider adding the following:

    Click and Hold over the 'Back to Main' button which already exists on lower right (maybe also the drop down menu button), and CF will take you to the previous module.

    So for example, suppose I am in GPS creen (embedded, or native, doesn't matter), and then decide to go to Main menu, find Media, and launch Media module. Then I would click+Hold the 'Back to Main' button and it will take me to GPS again.

    Now, once in GPS, I can again click+hold the button, and it will take me to media.

    It's an elegant way of giving folks a shortcut to the last module used, and neat way to alternate between 2 modules. I think a lot of people do GPS/Media back and forth quite often.

    Speaking of click+hold: I would make it BEEP once the action takes place... i.e., once the 3 secs have passed by. So I can look at the road while I click+hold....

    In settings you can choose as the startup location, PREVIOUS... I basically store the previous location already, so it wouldn't be hard to add is all I meant...

    David could you also add so that when pressing the Library button a second time in media mgr mode that it returns to where you came from, i.e.

    PATH=Music, Artist, Madonna - LIBRARY -> Root (as it is now)
    LIBRARY (again) -> PATH=Music, Artist, Madonna (back to where I came from)

    Let me check to see if I have the location stored...

    not a bad idea...

    I'm curious as to why that would be useful?
    If you hit LIBRARY once, it is because you decided to go to root, right? So, what's the reason for wanting to go back to where you came from? Scenario please?

    One thing I miss from 1.4 is that I could hit LIBRARY and it would take me to root, and from root, the ARTIST item was right there. Now instead you have to click MUSIC first, then Artist etc.

    I see the logical grouping in 1.7, which makes more sense. but the extra click every single time gets boring, especially when I listen to music (instead of videos or pics) 95% of the time.

    Just a thought.

    I actually agree on this, but have not thought of the best solution yet...

    Ever hit the wrong button ? :-) It happens, especially with while driving when you have big fingers :-)

    Also its not a feature which breaks other features, whenever someone leaves root he should just save that location (it´s already saved in most cases because it where it defaults to when you open library), so it´s probably not a difficult feature to implement.

    I browse a lot in directory mode, just because it easier for me to do, and some times I hit the library button, CF goes to root and i regret that i did, because I realize that it was probably faster just to go back (let´s say I want another album with the same artist I was just listening to).

    Agree, suggestions for library root could be:

    Artist
    Albums
    Genres
    Music Paths
    Videos
    Pictures


    or
    Music: Artist
    Music: Albums
    Music: Genres
    Music: Paths
    Video: Paths
    Picture: Paths



    There´s room enough....

    I see what you mean. Could get a little confusing when people see soo many different results by clicking the same button (Library) depending on the situation. I guess you already have that logic embedded in your head, but for someone who knows nothing about that logic, hitting the Library button would produce so many different results that they would think its not working correctly. Just a thought.

    regarding the layout below. Awesome! I think that could work very well!!!
