Ok great but may i have 'simple' button?

I have been searching a long time to set the app to display the horizon. When i found it the south north hemisphere separation is very weak. I would like an easier navigation so to find a planet i am seeing. I know there are others out there but it must be very easy for you guys to implement. So simple to find horizon and compass and a bit larger planets.
