The title says it all, please give us an option to auto-adjust map rotation according to heading!

update []: it's been months and nothing has happened yet. This is quite an important feature when following directions!

unfortunately the maps aren´t vector based, thus rotating it less than 90 degrees woul make it eithet blurry or distorted. This is why it should be vector based, for one reason.

on a more important note, please make the blob where you are actually an arrow pointing to the direction you are moving.

@Macilaci457: Rotating doesn't lead to serious blurriness or distortion (it's trivial to test) and certainly nothing compared to the blurriness of scaling PNG-tiles between zoom levels. The big thing with vector maps regarding rotation is that you can avoid upside-down text labels. Other than that rotated PNG-tiles are just fine enough and would be really useful.
