Thanks to everyone who helped with their experiences and solutions to 
my problems along the way -- Kismac is now doing great war driving in 
the Vancouver area and is proving to be exceptionally reliable and 

I have, in fact, found it to be exceptionally useful, and in many ways 
easier to use and less problematic than dedicated GPS software!


        [optionally] display other information (altitude, velocity) in the 
bottom bar, along with latitude and longitude

        allow us to create a list [table) of maps so that we can jump from one 
map to another fairly easily. This might be implemented as a 
"checkerboard" type of interface in which you click on a square, 
associate a map name with that square, and then you could easily jump 
from one map to another using a palette. Perhaps even automate it, when 
you move from one corner of one map to another... or even load the map 
automatically depending on the lat/long!

        [optionally] centre the blinking blue dot on the screen

        create a tutorial or help page to help people calibrate a map -- I 
volunteer to do this, if you like
