1. "Center" button is not "auto center" which waste power -- that's on each
if the screen distance between new position and previous one greater than
(say 5 pixels),
the position is redrawn. As of "auto center", the whole map must be updated,
that's really a waste.

2. Each time you press the "Center" button, it switch to "keep location in
view" mode.
In this mode, if you don't pan (drag) map, it keeps the location(position)
in view, else the 
view back layers are not updated.

About the foot: it means tracking. By default on each start the tracking is
not enabled, so 
the image is a foot with "x" on means tracking is disabled now. If you start
tracking, the 
image is updated to another foot without "x" sign on it.
