to assist with using the messaging functions! When my filter shows me
clients moving, I sometimes fire off a message, but I don't like to
intrude too much.

a touch screen, right? But does have a way to enter
up/down/left/right? I was considering this the other day and am
thinking about a menu option called View/Pan that will lock the
directional keys to pan the map instead of their current functions of
zoom (up/down) and fade (left/right). Being a BlackJack user, does that

This is part of the APRS 1.1 Spec Addendum you can see at:
I'm considering supporting the ability to beacon a "destination
waypoint" as well as interpret them and draw the lines that are
described. I don't know how many other APRS clients do this, but it's
part of the published spec, so I might as well support it! Who knows, I
might even make it part of the Poll's () "slow beacon" mode!
Oh, and another preview of things to come is that I'm designing a
"coordinate picker" dialog that will embed the OpenStreetMap with pan
and zoom to allow you to home in on and set a coordinate. It'll still
support a variety of manually-entered coordinates, but you'll be able to
see where you entered or enter what you see. - Thoughts?
