The lower the accuracy number the better.
The static threshold is to help prevent heading drift at low speeds. This 
value should be set low, if at all. If you're using the system for walking 
then a setting of about 3 or 4 should be the maximum.
It isn't really possible to convert from other map formats. This is because 
those map formats are proprietary and aren't available without licensing
