A special thank you goes to ariesboy475 and marstein (nicknames) for the intensive driving and comments. Your feedback was extremely helpful.
We’ve made the first round of fixes and will be ready within a week or so to extend the alpha to a second group of android users and to Windows mobile users. Those of you with windows mobile gps enables phones can already register to the alpha here.
