Map action strip

The map action strip gives users access to map interactivity features. While users can access these features via gestures on touchscreens, they need buttons to access interactivity features on screens with rotary and touchpad inputs. Buttons also add helpful visual clues.

Includes up to 4 buttons, such as (in no particular order):

  • Pan mode (required for apps that support user panning)
  • Recenter
  • Zoom-in and zoom-out

Template support

All templates that include a map support the map action strip, except the Place List (map) template, which is not intended for navigation apps.


Like the action strip, the map action strip disappears if 10 seconds go by without user interaction, as described in Visibility of action strips.
