And what is even more strange: if I put a map with coordinates 
52.2100/4.5400 to 52.2200/4.5500 as calibration points, and my 
current location is 52.215031/4.544608, the 'show current position' 
does not show up... while it is in between the calibration points. 
Possible issue: the map used happens to have the two 
registration/calibration points vertically  aligned due to map 
rotation that is in effect. When calibrating to a straigth line of 
known dimensions, this should not play a role and any point should be 
mapped correctly when two knowns and two unknowns are used for map 
calibration. I'm puzzled here.
