some new suggestions....

Here are the suggestions from the dutch jury :-)

  • Off track warning: There should be a distinction between getting too far to the left and too far to the right of the track.
  • Voice messages instead of beeps would be nice.
  • Sound level: Pathaway uses system/general sound settings but this
    is not convenient. My system settings are to keep the palm totally
    quiet. Yet, while using pathaway, I do not want pathaway to be
    quiet. Therefore, optionally, it should ignore the system settings for
    sound and allow the user to set the volume himself.
  • Track optimization: Reduction of the number of points on a track. This could be done as a postprocessing step (on the palm) or while tracking.
  • Screen rotation: The screen should be rotated such that the direction
    of movement is always up. As a result, at speeds lower than a small
    (configurable) number, it should stay at the previous rotation to avoid nervoud behavior.
  • Power saving: While recording tracks it would be useful to disable the
    screen, backlight, and keyboard. To access pathaway while in
    powersaving mode, the user should first a specific button (e.g. center
    navigator button).
  • Confirmation messages: While following an arbitrary route/track, it should be possible to get confirmation messages at a configurable time or distance interval that you are still on track.
  • Track editing: When a point on a track is selected on the screen it should be possible to jump straight to the track editor or to at least get the index of the point on the track. Also it would be nice to be able to delete ranges of points at a time or to cut a track in half, and of course to join different tracks on the palm, or is this already possible.

This is all I could think of right now.

as another suggestion, it would also be nice to be able to move points on the screen. This is useful sometimes to correct errors.

and another suggestion:
When following a track which is on the memory card, pathaway is really slow in drawing the track. Here is always helps to move the track to main memory. Couldn't pathaway do this for me transparently by creating a temporary copy of the track in main memory for efficiency?
