    I have been using my physical keyboard as my navigation keys since my Priv days. I thought I would share it just in case other people would be interested.

    1. Download Button Mapper (Pro subscription might be needed, I paid for my Pro subscription anyways)

    2. From the main menu -> Add buttons --> Click on + sign to add 0 key, spacebar, and symbol. Leave the single tap and double tap as default, use the long press to customize. For me, I use the spacebar as home button, 0 key as back, and symbol as recent apps.

    3. Go back to advanced options from main menu --> turn on "alternative input method" and "alternative button handling" .
    Also in the advanced options, change the long press delay and double press delay to 200ms (you can change as you experiment).

    There, now you can use the physical keyboard keys as a navigation key. It should work well most of the time.

    I just use swipe gestures on the screen for back, recent and home. Haven't touched my nav control buttons in months. I also have double tap of the spacebar to open recents.

    would be good if one could reclaim the tool belt real estate to have a taller display... I don't think that is doable
