🗺 Maps integration improvements

See original GitHub issue

After a talk with @hufman, we determined that the following tasks would improve the UX of the Google Maps integration, and they also seem easy enough to do. I’m opening this issue to track progress on these.

  • 🗺 Show location info in advanced settings (CDS.NAVIGATION.GPSPOSITION and CDS.NAVIGATION.GPSEXTENDEDINFO)
  • 📌 Related to #48 - as we figured out that even cars without navi provide GPS info, make the GMapController accept a LocationProvider which pulls data from the car, with a fallback to phone GPS if it fails
  • 👀 Add a wakelock when using Phone GPS to keep updating the location even when the screen is off
  • 🎫 Add next direction info somewhere in the map screen (the Maps API provides this for us, it’s just a matter of drawing it on the map somehow)

* [ ]  👀  Add a wakelock when using Phone GPS to keep updating the location even when the screen is off

I’ve tested the GMaps integration on my ID6 during driving while phone screen is off. GPS position is correctly updated while driving and map is moved (panning) with centralized GPS position, but map content is not reloaded/updated to actual resolution when driving to “next map sector”. Background refresh of map content doesn’t seem to work correct. I’ll make a video from this issue. Remark: access rights for AAId to phone location is set to “always”
