      Actually, the left/right change the transparency of the map. It only
      looks like the detail changes as it becomes darker. As I was writing
      the release notes, an early tester of the left/right feature reported
      the left wrapping issue.

      I think the delay in the +/- on the screen is Windows Mobile hesitating
      to see if your motion was going to be a double-click or not. With the
      keyboard, there's no uncertainty.

      If your HTC Touch Pro has a navigation rocker thing on the face, it also
      works for the up/down/left/right. At least, my AT&T Tilt works that way!

      Thanks for the positive (and quick!) feedback. At least I know it works
      for one more person than just me!
