Flutter Map – Location plugin #

Flutter Pub

A flutter_map plugin to request and display the users location and heading on the map. The core features of the plugin are:

  • Customization: The location button and marker can be completly customized.
  • Energy efficiency: The location service is turned off if the app runs in the background.
  • Usability: Developers are empowered to ensure a good user experience.

User experience #

Status

  • [x] The location button can be changed dependening on the location services status. For example also Google Maps shows a different icon if the location service is off.
  • [x] The marker icon can be changed depending on the location accuracy.
  • [x] It's possible to show the information (e.g. in form of a snackbar) to the user that the user location is outside of the map bounds.
  • [x] The location heading is also shown for devices without an gyroscope. We patched flutter_compass for that.
