That's very interesting - no I did not change anything since the initial implementation - this means, that RIM API will make also external GPS Devices available via the default LocationProvideInterface - that would be really cool - this this would mean, that I do not have to do anything to support external devices

Would be good/interesting to see if others can confirm this - since I can't test this environment at all.

Yes you are right - I have the same problem with the virtual keyboard on the storm [that have to be solved in the next release] - but I hope the trackball nav will work on your 8100?

yes indeed having some folder icons before the text would make it way more obvious...

you mean the exported KML & GPX? [personally I store the exports always on the SDCard and either plug in the SDcard then into my PC card reader - or I use the DesktopManager to access the files on the device]

On thing I am going to add for sure in on of the next releases is, that you are able to copy the current position into the clipboard, so that you can paste it into a SMS or email (to let somebody know, where you are)

Thanks again for your feedback
