GPS closes when going to sights and doesn't re-open when coming out of sights
Closed, ResolvedPublic


If I have the GPS open and go into scope/sights, the GPS closes which is fine as obviously IRL you wouldn't be able to see it when using scope/sights but when I come out of sights, it's no-where to be seen and I have to re-open it again. IRL, if you had an arm-mounted GPS or laptop on the grounds next to you, it wouldn't turn itself off just because you look down the sights, so it should just be hidden, not turned off, when using sights and be visible again when coming out of sights, until the player decides to turn it off.

Nice! Can't wait to see this fixed! :D

Still no change on this issue.
This makes it very hard for armor drivers to navigate, especially on vehicles where the driver cannot turn out.

Yeah, in almost a year nothing happened. Kind of frustrating...
Always have to hit ctr+m after I was in sights. That's not only annoying, it's dangerous too.
