New UI Design For Show The Way

The old design of my first app was simple. But there is not a lot of space for map. And the map is most important visual thing for my app. For that reason i need to use map full screen with more smaller and good looking buttons. I decide to to use Sherlock Action Bar. It looks simple and work every android version with same UI.

First thing i want is using split action bar. I want to put all of my button into action bar. While i get some space for map, my app provides a good android 4.0 exprience on every single android version.
