Mick & others,

Last night I started using Kismac with my GPS.  Had a bit of strange 
behaviour that I'd like to pass by you.

I set Waypoint 1, walked a block West, set Waypoint 2, and then walked 
back East.  Kismac tracked me just fine.  When I started walking North, 
however, Kismac was tracking me as walking South on the map!  East-West 
worked fine but North-South were backward.

For testing, I re-set the Waypoints, using the same physical locations, 
but this time setting the West one first, walking East a block, setting 
Waypoint 2, and then walking North/South.  They tracked fine this time.

Any thoughts that would explain this?

Also, once you set both waypoints, what's the purpose of the Set 
Current Position option?
