Hi Ari,

It is difficult for us to convey what features will be available in the 
next version or time lines.  Are goal is always to make loadsstone as 
stable aspossible and to include features and functions that can widely 
benefet as many users as possible.  Obviously phone model, Symbian and 
time constraints can affect  outcomes.

One thing I can tell you is that Internal GPS support will be available in 
the next release which is quite close to happening.  I can also tell you 
and everyone else that I wouldn't ditch my external GPS quite yet. 
Internal Nokia GPS's (such as the one in the N82/N95) use an older GPS 
chipset (SiRF 2) which limits receiver performance.  External units are 
still way better though there may be some situations where the internal 
GPS may be prefered especially when your external  GPS unit's battery goes 

Best regards,
