G'day All

Not sure the best place for these and let me know if you'd rather somewhere else.

We would like an obvious way for the end user to know when:

- online mode, all good

- online mode, dropped connection

- offline mode, connected

- offline mode, no connection

- anything I missed

A colour change could work, though not attached to that implementation.

Would be ok with two modes indicators, connected / not connected.

An additional audio / vibration cue when the mode changed would also be great.

The main use case if we would like the end user to know when looking at a map that it may not be displaying the latest information.

What do others think?
