Hello list, hello devs,

after I finally found myself motivated enough to set up a
postgis-database to get mapnik running I decided to upgrade gpsdrive and
make it use mapnik.
To be honest: It was quite some work since it seems that there were some
hardcoded paths in the configs (osm-template.xml mainly) that only exist
in debian, not in gentoo (socket of postgresql or the path to the
dejavu-font).
Still, I got this thing working and gpsdrive displays the mapnik-tiles
quite perfect (though the symbol for parking is the german "absolutes
halteverbot"-sign).
Now for the reason I'm writing this mail. The new version of gpsdrive
looks very good (great work put into it) but there are some things I
didn't yet figure out:
- - As I can see, by default all the POI and WLAN-data is stored in an
SQLite-file. Can I change back to the old behavior of using a
MySQL-database?
- - Where has the checkbox to select the display of WLAN-POIs gone? Yes, I
can toggle that with the POI-checkbox but shouldn't that be split again?
- - In previous versions we were able to "scroll" the map using the
"Position mode". How can I do this now?
- - Can I enable "-a" (display APM stuff (battery status, temperature)) by
default with some option in the config-file?

Nevertheless, thanks for continuously improving this great piece of
software ;)

	Jannis
