  Here we go.
  in exploration mode most of the movements are not read, neither 
screenreader can read that information from the screen afterwards. 'No 
waypoint found' -message is usually read aloud. With joystick  'no 
waypoints found' is not read then looking for wrong direction.

   On navigation mode when looking around with joystick waypoints are read 
sometimes. Keys 1, 5 and 6 do not read out but shift 5 and shift 6 works 
as expected.

  My phone is Nokia 6680 but N6600 has similar behavior. Screen reader  is 
Mobilespeak 2.03 (latest). Loadstone version is 0.58. GPS is OEM SIRF-3, 
connected and has a fix.
